If you were looking for the character of the day in Raid Battle in The Ruins!, see Shane Seeker.

Shane (Japanese: カイト Kaito) is a character of the day who appeared in That's Just Swellow.


A resident of Crossgate Town, Shane and his newly caught Swablu were competitors in the annual Crossgate PokéRinger tournament. Despite being a resident of Crossgate Town, this was Shane's first time entering the competition.

In his first round, Shane faced a Wingull, Pelipper, and a Yanma. The rookie was able to use his knowledge of the wind to successfully win the first round of the PokéRinger.

Eventually, along with fellow newcomers Ash and James, Shane made it to the semi-finals of the PokéRinger Tournament. In his round, Shane faced off against James and Dustox, borrowed from Jessie. Unfortunately for Shane, James had been trained as a PokéRinger when he was younger. It was this skill that allowed the Team Rocket member to defeat Shane and move on to the finals.

Although Shane lost, he was glad to have participated, and congratulated Ash on his victory over James in the tournament.
