Khoury (Japanese: カズナリ Kazunari) is a Trainer from Johto as well as a friend of Lyra's. They both debuted in An Egg Scramble!.

Khoury traveled to Sinnoh with Lyra and his father where they all took part in the Johto Festival. He wanted to visit Sinnoh so that he could observe and hopefully catch the native Pokémon. He was also interested in learning about Pokémon breeding and asked if Brock would mentor him.

Khoury tends to panic very easily but is always very excited to meet a new Pokémon. In A Rivalry to Gible On!, after encountering a wild Gible, Khoury became determined to capture it, which he eventually did after a closely-fought competition with Ash who had the same goal.

In DP147, he had a tag battle with Lyra against Ash and Dawn. Despite his Totodile evolving into Croconaw during the match, he and Lyra eventually lost. At the end, Khoury, his father, and Lyra left on a blimp headed to Johto and said their good-byes. Khoury had also agreed to become Lyra's traveling buddy, upon her request.


This is a listing of Khoury's known Pokémon:

Khoury's Croconaw
Khoury's Croconaw first appeared as a Totodile in An Egg Scramble!. When Khoury introduced it to Ash and his friends it was feeling depressed and was not eating its food. However, Brock crushes some berries and sprinkles it on the food, cheering it up as it eagerly ate the food.

Later, Totodile was used to used to help track down a wild Gible that was attacking people near a Pokémon Center. After getting into a scuffle with Buizel, Khoury was eventually able to track it down and Totodile was able to match moves with Gible, wearing it down allowing Khoury to capture it.

In DP147, Totodile was used in the tag battle alongside Lyra's Chikorita against Ash's Monferno and Dawn's Cyndaquil. In the heat of battle, Totodile evolved into a Croconaw. Despite the type-advantage it had over its opponents, Croconaw was unable to stand up to Monferno's Mach Punch and was defeated.

Croconaw's known attacks are Water Gun, Aqua Tail, Crunch, Superpower, and Hydro Pump.

Debut An Egg Scramble!
Khoury's Gible
Gible appeared in A Rivalry to Gible On! when it was causing trouble and knocking out all the other Pokémon. After getting into battles with Ash, Dawn, Lyra and Khoury's Pokémon Gible was eventually cornered by Khoury who used his Totodile against it. After a battle between the Pokémon, Gible was eventually worn down and captured by Khoury. Afterwards, Gible was seen happily eating with the other Pokémon.

Gible's known attacks are Dig, Sandstorm, Strength, and Rock Smash.
