"Don't let Calvin's demeanor fool you. His sister Penelope placed 3rd last year; and she's taught him all her tricks. Besides playing the Pokémon TCG, his favorite things are reading, poetry, and playing Cribbage. Don't count him out just because he's new to the game!"
Calvin is faced in the fifth round of the Platinum League, and can be challenged after defeating Mick for the first time in the Platinum League. After defeating Calvin, players move on to face Kendall.

- Platinum League, before a game: "Oh, <player>! Sorry I was so shy...you know. Before."
- Match setup:
- "So... This is the first League I've played in. Take it easy on me, OK?"
- "You've done well to get this far, <player>. Let's have a SPIRITED match! Heya! Ya know, I'm the odds-on favorite in this matchup!"
- Player loss:
- "Glug, glug... You just got DUNKED by my Water deck! Would you like to play again?"
- "Don't feel bad. Everyone's nerves get to them sometimes. Mine get to me a LOT! Want to give it another go?"
- Player win:
- "Um... Good win. Still... If I can't beat you, my sister Penelope will!"
- "That was nerve-wracking, huh? But you kept it together and played well! Good game! You might even become Champion!"
