Anime debut Tag! We're It...!

Conway (Japanese: コウヘイ Kōhei) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. He is a Pokémon Trainer who first appeared in Tag! We're It...! as Dawn's Tag Battle partner.


Conway first appeared from Tag! We're It...! to Smells Like Team Spirit!. He was shown to be a very smart Trainer. His strategies played an important role in helping himself and Dawn to advance to the finals of the Hearthome City Tag Battle Competition.

Conway appeared again in Camping It Up! through One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team! during a four-episode arc at the Pokémon Summer Academy. During this arc he demonstrated his knowledge about Pokémon as well as an attraction towards Dawn.

He later appeared in An Old Family Blend!, where it was revealed he was also entering the Lily of the Valley Conference. In League Unleashed!, he passed the first round, then in Casting a Paul on Barry! he made it through the second and had his third round opponent revealed to be Ash. He battled Ash and lost in Working on a Right Move! after almost defeating him thanks to his strategies.

He made a cameo appearance during the credits of Zoroark: Master of Illusions.


The most notable thing about Conway is his habit of appearing out of nowhere, which Dawn finds creepy. He is remarkably intelligent, and uses effective strategies such as using Trick Room to his Dusknoir's advantage. However, he is bad at improvisation which led to his elimination from the Lily of the Valley Conference in Working on a Right Move!. He also has a habit of adjusting his glasses and chuckling in a creepy manner, which is displayed every time he appears.

Conway's Slowking
When Dawn first met Conway, Slowking was with him and Dawn thought both were creepy, but Conway told her that Slowking had taken a liking to her. During their first battle, Conway told Dawn to not worry about defense; their strategy being her Piplup would use offensive moves, while Slowking kept on defending him with attacks like Safeguard. It was later shown to have helped Dawn's Buneary beat Conway and Dawn's semi-final round opponents, in Smells Like Team Spirit!.

It was later seen again in Up Close and Personable!, in the Pokémon Summer Academy where it showed off some impressive moves against Jessie's Yanmega; protecting a Lumineon that he, Ash, and his friends had found in a cave. It was seen for the last time in One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team!; running alongside Conway in the third leg of the triathlon.

Slowking's known moves are Safeguard, Protect, Psychic, and Water Pulse.
