Keith (Japanese: ダズル Dazzle) is a Pokémon Ranger in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia.

In the games

He quickly becomes friends with the player, along with Rhythmi, during their time in the Ranger School. After graduation, he and Rhythmi were assigned to Fiore, unlike the player. There, he met his partner, Buizel. He appears multiple times in The Almia Times, where some of his heroics in Fiore are shown. He aspires to become a Top Ranger, which is eventually accomplished—by no mere coincidence—at the same time as the player. He is declared the twelfth of twelve Rangers to become Top Rangers, while the player is the eleventh.

Later, on a mission to get the Yellow Gem, he is kidnapped by Heath in Hippowdon Temple and held for ransom, his Styler stolen so Heath could lure the player to him by voicemail. Since Keith failed, the player challenges and befriends Cresselia, who is guarding the Yellow Gem. Unfortunately, the player has to hand over their hard-earned prize to Heath to rescue Keith; after he obtains the Yellow Gem, Heath flees to Altru Tower to secure the gem so the Shadow Crystal could not be neutralized. Keith later assists the player during Operation Brighton, saving the player from Darkrai's Dark Power Field Move.

After the game, he is rarely seen. He cannot be found regularly and will only appear when the player completes the Browser, conquers the Capture Arena, and finishes a certain quest.

On Ranger Net, Keith will partner up with the player for the special mission "Liberate the Tower!".
