Dino (Japanese: ディーノ Dino) is a minor recurring character in the Pokémon anime.



Dino debuted in Reunion Battles In Nimbasa!, where he participated in the Club Battle tournament. His first opponent was Omega, who used a Patrat. Dino managed to defeat Omega using his Deerling which advanced him to the second round.

In The Club Battle Hearts of Fury: Emolga Versus Sawk!, he was paired with Antonio as his opponent in the second round. As Antonio chose to use Cottonee against Tranquill, Dino had no trouble battling him as he managed to defeat Antonio, moving on to the semi-final round. His opponent in that round was Ash where he chose Darumaka to go up against Ash's Palpitoad.

Their battle took place in the next episode, where his Darumaka was defeated by a single Hydro Pump from Ash's Palpitoad. As a result, Dino ended up getting eliminated from the tournament.

In Curtain Up, Unova League!, Dino competed in the Vertress Conference. In Mission: Defeat Your Rival!, he appeared on the screen showing the match-ups for the second round of the Conference, meaning he had made it through the first round. In Lost at the League!, he appeared once again on the screen of the Vertress Conference, now showing the match-ups for the last sixteen, meaning he had made it through the second and third rounds. In Strong Strategy Steals the Show!, it was revealed that he had made it through the fourth round as well.

In the quarterfinals, he battled Katharine and won in A Unova League Evolution!. In the semifinals, he was paired against Ramone and defeated him, thus advancing to the finals. There, he lost to Virgil, becoming the runner-up of the Vertress Conference. Afterwards, he appeared once again during the closing ceremonies of the Vertress Conference.
