A humiliatingly one-sided battle early in his fighting career caused him to be extremely jumpy and suspicious, and he hates being the center of attention, preferring to operate relatively unnoticed in multi-battles, if possible. When forced to fight in singles, he will resort to every sneaky trick he has in his arsenal to stay under the radar and avoid getting shut down like he did in his very first battle. Espio is the team's analogue of the Psychic- or Ghost-types used in most teams, and he has a wide variety of tricky moves to debilitate and screw up opponents.

She doesn't much like having to attack other Pokemon, but will not hesitate to defend herself offensively if need be. Her skill set focuses mainly on support and healing, a role which she wholeheartedly embraces. Her personality changed least of all through evolution due to her relatively consistent level of performance. She is less skittish and slightly more calm post-evolution.
