In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Cheren in Pokémon Adventures

Cheren makes an appearance as one of the Pokédex holders of the Unova region, he is a good friend of Black and along with Bianca, recommended him to be the third Pokédex holder for Professor Juniper. Due to an accident, his and Bianca's Pokédexes are currently broken, leaving Black with the only working one. Strangely, in Pokémon Adventures, his starter is actually weak to that of the protagonist which is unlike the games, where it is stronger than the player character's.

Pokémon

Ash's Snivy
Snivy
Snivy was first seen in Professor Juniper's lab where after getting berry juice sprayed on it by Juniper's Tepig, began fighting with it only to be stopped by Oshawott. It later appeared in Kanoko Town where it was delivered to Black along with Tepig and Oshawott and once again fought with Tepig and was once again stopped by Oshawott. Later Bianca picked Snivy up and immediatly gave it to Cheren, without giving either of them a chance to protest.

Snivy's only known move is Tackle.

Debut Unknown

In the Pokémon Master Black & White manga

Cheren is friends with both Monta and Bianca, he is very knowledgable about Pokémon, which Monta dislikes. Anywhere Monta slips up he won't hesitate to tell him the right way. He first appears with Bianca when Monta is attempting to capture a wild Patrat and Watchog. Monta is just about to capture the Watchog which Cheren tells him that it is not the right way. He explains to Monta to remember that when two pokemon come out at the same time, you have to knock out the one you don't want first before you can get the one that you do want. Cheren suddenly decides for all of them to take their Pokémon journey together, which a man on his bike overhears. He starts insult them making him and Monta angry.

He uses Tepig in a double battle with Monta's Snivy against a Bike Gang King's Braviary, it looks like they were about to lose, but they uses a combination attack which Cheren thinks of, fainting Braviary. Cheren battles Monta in PBW02 using his Tepig, Pansage and Basculin against Monta's Snivy, Panpour and Dangoro. He starts off with a lecture about triple battles. With his great knowledge of triple battles he gives Monta a hard time, but is eventually defeated.
