(Japanese: ケニヤン Kenyan) is a character of the Pokémon anime that first debuted in BW031.


Kenyan challenged Ash to a Pokémon battle and chose Blitzle as his partner. Ash planned to battle him with Pikachu but ultimately chose Oshawott. The battle ended up being postponed because Oshawott lost his Scalchop. Cilan politely asks Kenyan to wait until the next day to have another battle with Ash, but he was disappointed by and stomped off in anger.

Ash and friends found Kenyan up in the mountains the next day, powering up his Blitzle using a bike-powered generator. Shortly after, he had his second battle with Ash. He ended up losing but was greatly impressed by Ash's skills. The two shook hands and he bid farewell.

Kenyan is set to reappear in BW041.


Kenyan's Blitzle
Kenyan used Blitzle in a battle against Ash's Oshawott, but it kicked off Oshawott's Scalchop, which ultimately caused the battle to be postponed. Blitzle re-battled him the next day after being powered up. It managed to destroy the stone Scalchop that Cilan's Dwebble had made for him with Shock Wave. However, because of Oshawott's training with the heavy Scalchop, Oshawott's speed increased dramatically. Blitzle was then defeated after they both crashed into a rock while their Flame Charge and Aqua Jet moves combined into a huge wave of steam.

Blitzle's known moves are Shock Wave, Flame Charge, and Double Kick.
