Hope the Rockruff is a young female Rockruff who makes a few appearances in The Legend of Fox the Brave. She is an orphaned Rockruff from Rockhead Village found in the ruins of her home by Rex Storm, Stan the Wolf, and Pebble the Lycanroc. She was adopted by Pebble and Aria the Zoroark, making her the adopted sister of Flame the Litten and Shade the Zorua.
Being a Rockruff, Hope resembles a non-anthropomorphic puppy with tan fur, a brown muzzle, paws, and ear-tips, bright blue eyes, a pale pink nose, and a white ruff, belly, and tail with a dusty brown hue.
Hope is a sweet, friendly, and playful young Rockruff. She is a bit timid, but loves her new family. She doesn't mind being the only girl of the three Pokemon children adopted by Pebble and Aria, holding her own in their play-fights and against Shade's pranks.
At some point after the Great Rebellion, Infinite attacked Rockhead Village, destroying it and killing almost all the inhabitants, except for Rynok the Rhydon(who survived due to his sturdy body armor despite his old age) and Hope herself(possibly because she hid). Hope, an unnamed Rockruff at that time, is found by Pebble, Rex, and Stan in her house, discovering the dead bodies of her parents. The Rockruff is heard whimpering and even bites Pebble on the nose when he tries to comfort her, but she warms up to him. Pebble names her Hope, after the fact she is the last hope for Rockhead Village, as the only survivor alongside Rynok. She then lives at the Base as the adopted daughter of Pebble and Aria.
Hope's entire moveset is unknown, but it was confirmed that she knows Rock Throw.
Though her Ability was never mentioned, it was confirmed to be Keen Eye.
Being a Rock-Type, Hope is weak to Water, Steel, Ground, and Fighting-Type Pokemon.
During the Storm Squad's quest to find Samu Komm, Pebble found Hope in her home in Rockhead Village and gave her her name. Afterward, Pebble and Aria adopted her and Flame, and later Shade when Stan brought him over to the Storm Squad.
Hope easily holds her own against her rough adopted brothers, though she loves them like actual siblings. She loves to play with them, and knows Shade is having fun when he pulls his pranks on them with his Illusions.
