Shin (Japanese: Shin) is Yū Shirogane's rival in the Pocket Monsters Platinum: Aim to Be Battle King!! manga series. 

Character

Shin is shown to have knowledge on some basic aspects of Pokémon, such as the requirement of Badges for traded Pokémon to obey.

History

As Yū's Shaymin was disobedient after trading it to his Platinum game, Shin arrives and tells him that he will need some more Badges in order to get Shaymin to listen. Afterwards, he starts taunting Yū into believing that he is unskilled. This made Yū want to challenge Shin to prove him wrong. Shin declines since Yū doesn't have the rights skills yet and tells him to get more Badges so that Shin will reaccept the offer. The next day, Shin and Yū have their battle. Shin was defeated by Yū's Shaymin. After the battle, he watches as Yū battles various Pokémon in the Battle Tower.

Two Trainers show up and Shin and Yū battle them. As Shin and Yū did not cooperate with their strategies, they were easily beaten by their opponents. Shin is at home with Yū where they train extra hard in order to defeat the duo. The next day, Shin, paired with Yū, has a rematch with the duo. This time, both Trainers manage to defeat them.

Later, Shin fought a losing battle against a Trainer who had the Creation trio. He was then invited to a tournament in the Battle Tower and managed to get past all of the other participants. He had a rematch with Yū and lost despite the improved strategies.
