(Japanese: ケニヤン Kenyan) is a recurring character of the Pokémon anime and a rival of Ash that first debuted in Oshawott's Lost Scalchop!.

History

Kenyan challenged Ash to a Pokémon battle and chose Blitzle as his partner. Ash planned to battle him with Pikachu but ultimately chose Oshawott. The battle ended up being postponed because Oshawott lost his Scalchop. Cilan politely asks Kenyan to wait until the next day to have another battle with Ash, but he was disappointed and stomped off in anger.

Ash and the gang found Kenyan up in the mountains the next day, powering up his Blitzle using a bike-powered generator. Shortly after, he had his second battle with Ash. He ended up losing but was greatly impressed by Ash's skills. The two shook hands and he bid farewell.

In BW039, Kenyan met up with Ash again in Raimon Town riding on his Zebstrika which had since evolved from Blitzle. He also entered the Don Battle tournament. In the next episode, he went up against Bianca who was his first opponent. Using his powerful Zebstrika, he managed to defeat Bianca's Minccino and advance to the next round.

This listing is of Kenyan's known Pokémon in the anime:

Kenyan's Zebstrika
Zebstrika
Kenyan used Zebstrika as a Blitzle in a battle against Ash's Oshawott, but it kicked off Oshawott's Scalchop, which ultimately caused the battle to be postponed. Blitzle re-battled him the next day after being powered up. It managed to destroy the stone Scalchop that Cilan's Dwebble had made for him with Shock Wave. However, because of Oshawott's training with the heavy Scalchop, Oshawott's speed increased dramatically. Blitzle was then defeated after they both crashed into a rock while their Flame Charge and Aqua Jet moves combined into a huge wave of steam.

In BW039, it was revealed to have evolved into Zebstrika. Kenyan also used it in his first battle in the Don Battle tournament against Bianca's Minccino in BW040. Though hit by a barrage of DoubleSlap attacks, it defeated the Chinchilla Pokémon with Stomp and advanced its Trainer to the second round.

Zebstrika's known moves are Shock Wave, Flame Charge, Double Kick and Stomp.
