Kei Shindō (age 6; SS001)
As seen in SS001, when he was six, Go was invited by his childhood friend Koharu to go to Professor Oak's Pokémon Summer Camp with her. During their visit in Pallet Town, Go and Koharu encountered the Mythical Pokémon Mew. The two chased after the unknown Pokémon, but it eventually got away in the aftermath of a baby Kangaskhan rescue. Professor Oak later told them the Pokémon they saw was most likely the Mythical Pokémon Mew. Motivated, Go swore that he would become a Pokémon Trainer when he turned ten, and one day catch Mew.
Go is a stylish city boy who prefers to stay calm and collected, in contrast to the more instinctive and adventurous Ash. Despite this, he can also become hot-blooded when his opinion is challenged.
He is highly knowledgeable about Pokémon. However, his overconfidence has left him mostly isolated, with exception of his friends Koharu and Ash.
