Kibago is the first Pokémon that Iris is known to have obtained. She obtained Kibago from the matriarch of her hometown when Kibago was just a day old. She was given the task of journeying with Kibago in order to help raise it into a great Ononokus.

Kibago was the first Pokémon that Ash scanned with his new Pokédex in BW002, though he was actually aiming it at Iris's hair and wondering why Kibago looked nothing like what the Pokédex showed. Kibago appears to be a friendly Pokémon, making quick friends with Ash's Pikachu. They are shown to have a strong relationship such as in BW003 where a Meguroco had caught it in its jaws, Iris tried everything to get it out.

In BW005, Dent tells the two that Iris and Kibago have perfect compatibility. In BW006 it was revealed that Kibago wants to evolve to its final stage, unlike most of the other walking Pokémon in the anime.

Kibago has been shown to have some childish traits, such as in BW008, where it fought Pikachu when it thought it was the one who ate all the food. In BW009, it was shown the Kibago has not had much experience in battling, crying when it was hit by weakened attacks from Dent's Yanappu; however, it was shown to be able to produce an extremely powerful Dragon Rage that can cause massive destruction, but is uncontrollable and has a tendency to explode in all directions rather than beam at a specific target as is meant to. Both Ash and Dent playfully refer to it as "Dragon Sneeze", much to Iris's dislike.

Like Pikachu and Dawn's Piplup, Kibago appears to prefer being outside of its Poké Ball, but unlike them, it likes to travel inside Iris's long hair, while Pikachu and Piplup usually go on their Trainer's shoulder.

A Japanese event randomly distributed an egg that contained an in-game representation of Iris's Kibago, Ash's Mamepato, or Dent's Yanappu via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Like its anime counterpart, this Kibago knows Scratch and Dragon Rage. It is also, interestingly, always male. This event started on December 17th, 2010, and will end January 11, 2011.

  • Kibago is the first Dragon-type Pokémon to be owned by a main character other than Ash.
    • Both Pokemon came from places that specialize in Dragon-types.
  • The method used by Kibago to charge up Dragon Rage before firing is very similar to the way that Ash's Gible would charge up Draco Meteor.
    • Coincidentally, both Kibago and Gible have trouble executing these Dragon-type moves at first.
    • Also, Kibago and Gible are both part of a three-stage evolutionary line that retain the same type throughout their evolution.
