Ian (Japanese: イシズカ Ishizuka) is a minor character of the day who appeared in Giving Chase at the Rhyhorn Race!. He is a Rhyhorn racer who races with number 5.
Ian was one of the Rhyhorn racers that almost trampled over Ash and his friends while they were on their way to Odyssey Village, not knowing that they had wandered onto the racetrack during an ongoing race. Later, he was in the lead when Ash, Clemont, Bonnie, and Serena actually reached the starting point of the racetrack in Odyssey Village.
Later, when Ash decided to participate in a race himself, Ian also participated in it. During the race, he and the other racers were ambushed by Team Rocket and caught in nets. His Rhyhorn and all of the other Rhyhorn were stolen by Team Rocket, but with the help of Ash and his friends, the racers and also their Rhyhorn were freed. The Rhyhorn then proceeded to blast off Team Rocket, and afterwards, Ian was seen reuniting with his Rhyhorn.
