(Japanese: カズナリ Kazunari) is a Trainer from Johto as well as a friend of Kotone's. They both debuted in DP143.
Kazunari traveled to Sinnoh with Kotone and his father where they all took part in the Johto Festa. 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.
Kazunari can be described as a bit of a klutz and tends to panic very easily. But he is always very excited to meet a new Pokémon. In DP145, after encountering a wild Gible Kazunari 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 Kotone against Ash and Dawn. Despite his Totodile evolving into Croconaw during the match, he and Kotone eventually lost. At the end, Kazunari, his father, and Kotone left on a blimp headed to Johto and said their good-byes. Kazunari had also agreed to become Kotone's traveling buddy, upon her request.
