is a researcher in the field of Cybersciences, particularly those linked
to data manipulation. He is also the inventor of the
GS Balls and the
Synchronicity Machine, though the schematics to both have since been
He is also good friends with
Spencer Hale - the three having participated in projects together.
Newton is a generally jolly, if somewhat
eccentric figure with an adventurous spirit. He takes the rough with the
smooth and is surprised by very little.
It was an encounter with a
childhood that fostered Newton's fascination with unseen
dimensions. Studies on the Pokémon led him to uncover
Cyberspace. From there, he sought for a
means to physically access the layers of it that computers
were unable to reach.
Titian took an interest in
Newton's endeavours and offered to fund his research in
exchange for Newton sharing the data he uncovered. Eager to
continue his work, Newton accepted, and Project Mugen was
Joining forces with Kadri and
Spencer Hale, Newton was able to gather enough data to fill
the gaps in his schematics for the device that was to enable
them all to travel into Cyberspace. However it wasn't until
his recently-acquired assistant
Zero contributed important
samples to the project, that Newton's Synchronicity Machine
began to function successfully.
All four scientists were able
to pass into the
Mindspace without problems. However, an
unexpected incident caused Newton and Zero to be separated
from Kadri and Spencer - throwing them into a radically
altered portion of Mindspace Newton dubbed 'The Reverse
Entranced by the unusual
properties of this dimension, Newton spent many years
studying the Reverse World and
Giratina, the only
living within it. Originally intending to obtain data on
Giratina's dimensional passage abilities to further improve
the Synchronicity Machine, Newton discontinued Project Mugen
after realising that such studies would damage Giratina.
