This article is about the character from Pokémon Get da ze!. For the character from the Pokémon anime with the same Japanese name, see Drew.

シュウ Shū
Shū and his Pikachu
Gender Male
Hometown Unknown
Region Kanto
Relatives father, mother

Shū (Japanese: シュウ Shū), is a Pokémon Trainer that specializes in capturing wild Pokémon. He is the main character of the Pokémon Get da ze! manga.


Shū uses a device called the In-Com, a headset which was created by his father that lets him talk to his Pokémon. He also uses a Pokédex.

He has a terrible aim and frenquently misses his targets when throwing Poké Balls.

Shū is enthusiastic and often comes up with bizarre but effective schemes for capturing wild Pokémon, such as dressing up in giant Pokémon suits. He is especially loyal towards his Pokémon, although his Pikachu is willful and will refuse orders. His rival is Tomio.


Shū met his Pikachu in Enter Shū & Pikachu! when he found Pikachu's Poké Ball abandoned in a forest. Apparently, the Poké Ball had become defective and was releasing Pikachu's electricity everywhere. Shū was able to fight against the current and release Pikachu, after which they became partners. Even though they are close friends, they argue constantly.


Unlike in most other Pokémon canon, Shū does not seem to have a limit on the number of Pokémon he may carry with him.
