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 captured Swablu were competitors in the 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 in the tournament.


Shane's Swablu
Swablu was used by Shane in the PokéRinger Contest located in Crossgate Town. It was able to get Shane past the first round. When it went up against James's Dustox, it lost even though it put up a great fight trying to get the ring to the goal.

Swablu's only known move is Peck.
