Keanan (Japanese: ケンゾー Kenzo) is a recurring character who first appeared in Defending the Homeland!. He is a warden at a swamp located between Lumiose City and Laverre City that is the original home of Ash's Goodra.

History

Keanan was driving down the road with his Bellsprout when they drove past Ash and his friends taking a break. Bellsprout recognized its old friend Goomy in Ash's Goodra and got Keanan to recognize it as well. They approached the group and were greeted happily by Goodra. He then introduced himself to Ash and his friends and took them to the swamp. He explained to the group what happened to the Pokémon originally living at the swamp and how Goodra had been driven away from the swamp when it was still a Goomy. Although he regretted that the Pokémon living at the swamp had been attacked and driven away by a Florges and her army to a remote corner, he refused to interfere, stating that matters between Pokémon should be solved by Pokémon themselves. As such, he stopped Ash from helping Goodra when the Florges and her army attacked again. He did, however, approve of Ash and his friends cheering Goodra on.

When Goodra was mysteriously attacked and badly hurt by a Shadow Ball and a Psybeam coming out of nowhere, Keanan treated Goodra in his house. He then went through video footage with Clemont to deduce where the Shadow Ball and Psybeam attacks had come from.

He reappeared in Beyond the Rainbow!. While Ash and his friends went into the swamp to search for Pikachu, Dedenne, and Wooper who had been abducted, Keanan told Clemont that there was something that had been bothering him for a while and thus would not go search with them. Keanan had studied the water level of a spring with special healing powers located in the swamp and discovered it had been affected by an unknown source. He quickly went to Ash and his friends to tell them this, only to find out Team Rocket was already taking off with the water. After Ash and his friends defeated Team Rocket, he checked the ground of the swamp and concluded it had completely dried up. As such, it would never be as ideal for Pokémon to live at as it had been. Just at that moment, Goodra stepped forward and used Rain Dance, followed by Florges (who had switched allegiances) using Grassy Terrain. This caused the swamp to become lush again. He witnessed how Florges and her former army now came to live in peace with the swamp's original inhabitants. He was also present when Ash released Goodra for it to live with its friends again and afterwards said his goodbyes as Ash and his friends continued on their journey.

Keanan made a brief appearance in Master Class Is in Session! and Performing a Pathway to the Future!, watching Serena's Master Class Pokémon Showcase from Gloire City along with Goodra and the other swamp Pokémon.

He reappeared in A Diamond in the Rough!.

He appeared again in Valuable Experience for All!, where he drove Goodra to Lumiose City, where it rejoined Ash's party.

He reappeared in Down to the Fiery Finish!, where he watched the Lumiose Conference on television.

He reappeared in Facing the Needs of the Many!, where he waved goodbye to Ash and his friends after Goodra returned home.

Keanan's Bellsprout
Bellsprout
Bellsprout is Keanan's only known Pokémon. It was good friends with Ash's Goodra when it was still a Goomy and before it was accidentally taken away from the swamp.

Keanan was driving down the road with Bellsprout when they drove past Ash and his friends taking a break. Even though Goomy had evolved twice since Bellsprout had last seen it, Bellsprout still instantly recognized it. It ran towards Goodra and they greeted each other happily. Although Goodra seemed somewhat hesitant to return to the swamp it used to live, it was persuaded by Bellsprout to go.

Bellsprout made a brief appearance in Master Class Is in Session! and Performing a Pathway to the Future!, watching Serena's Master Class Pokémon Showcase along with Keanan and the other wetland Pokémon.

It reappeared in A Diamond in the Rough! and then again in Valuable Experience for All!.

Ash's Goodra
Goodra
Main article: Ash's Goodra

Goodra was once a Goomy that happily lived in a swamp together with many other Pokémon. However, one day a Florges and her army attacked and took over their land. Florges came up to Goomy and attacked it. This caused it to be swept away, landing on the back of a Swanna and carried away from its homeland.

In A Slippery Encounter!, it fell of the Swanna and met Ash and his friends. It bonded with Ash and was caught by him. During its time with Ash, Goomy evolved twice. In Defending the Homeland! it finally returned to its homeland. It was reunited with its old friends and together, with help from Ash and his friends, they stood up against Florges, her army and Team Rocket and were ultimately victorious. However, during the battle, Goodra and its friends realized that Florges wasn't truly evil as they believed she was and her only motive was saving her daughter, Floette. When Team Rocket drained the swamp, Goodra and Florges revived it with Rain Dance and Grassy Terrain and the spring water returned. Once Floette was fully recovered, Florges and Goodra made amends and all is forgiven. Goodra then chose to leave Ash and stay at its homeland.

Main article: Florges (anime)

At first, Florges seemed like an evil Pokémon that drove Pokémon that lived peacefully in a swamp away for no particular reason. Some time before Defending the Homeland!, she managed to take over Goodra's homeland and swept away Goodra, who was then still a Goomy. In her conquest she was backed by a large army of strong Pokémon. The real reason why she had driven away Goomy and its friend was not revealed until later. She was taking care of her daughter Floette who was very ill, and the swamp Goomy and its friends lived in contained a spring with healing water.

She had also met with Team Rocket, who told Florges lies about Goodra and its friends and claimed they would help her in making Floette better. However, when Ash and Bonnie infiltrated the spring, Team Rocket revealed their true motives. They had really been planning on draining the spring and selling the rare healing water. Because of that, they were also indirectly responsible for Floette not getting better. From then on, she sided with Ash and Goodra and took down Team Rocket's airship. After they defeated Team Rocket however, the swamp had completely dried up. To make the swamp lush again, Goodra used Rain Dance, followed by Florges using Grassy Terrain. The healing water returned, and Florges bathed Floette in it to make it better. Afterwards, she continued to live in the swamp in peace together with her former army, Floette, Goodra, and the swamp's original inhabitants.

Floette
Floette is Florges's daughter.

Because of an unknown reason, she had become very ill. Florges cared so much for her that she conquered a swamp where a group of Pokémon lived peacefully just so she could access the spring with healing water located in the swamp. Florges tried to heal Floette in the water, but the tide had become low because Team Rocket was secretly draining the spring, causing the healing effect to be insufficient. Florges later sided with Goodra to defeat Team Rocket and together they brought back life to the spring. Bathed in the fresh healing water, Floette quickly became better. Following this, she jumped up and brought Florges and Goodra together, to celebrate that they had become friends. Afterwards, she continued to live in the swamp in peace together with Florges and her former army, Goodra, and the swamp's original inhabitants.

Floette made a brief appearance in Master Class Is in Session! and Performing a Pathway to the Future!,, watching Serena's Master Class Pokémon Showcase along with Keanan and the other wetland Pokémon.
