Kellyn (Japanese: ハジメ Hajime) is a Pokémon Ranger. He is the male player character in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia.
In the games
Kellyn is the male playable character in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. His female counterpart is Kate. His original home is Fiore, and he went on his own to Almia to become a Ranger. He is also declared the eleventh of twelve Rangers to become Top Rangers after the events in the Cargo Ship. He is also the youngest one.
In the anime
Kellyn made his debut appearance in Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Parts 1 and 2 as a Top Rank Ranger.
He appears to be serious in his work and is very knowledgeable about the plan of saving Riolu.
He also appears to slightly respect Ash and his ability of Pokemon Training, but also slightly doubts him because of his rashness.
Ash and his friends helped him on his mission of protecting a hurt Riolu. Kellyn apparently knows Solana and interacts with her frequently.
In the manga
Kellyn appears in the comic based on Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia that is posted on the Pokémon Japanese Website. Kellyn is a Top Rank Ranger and his partner Pokémon is a Pachirisu. Kellyn collects all volumes of The Almia Times, pieces of Capture Stylers, and Capture Discs. He is very picky about his collection of Ranger things and keeps them all clean and organized. Kate got part of his collection dirty with her fingerprints and he became furious and forced her to wash her hands.
- Hajime means "beginning," probably referring to his status as a beginner in the game; however, he is a Top Ranger in the anime and in the manga.
- In the anime, Kellyn has been shown with several final forms of Ash's own Pokémon, a Floatzel, a Staraptor, and three Blastoise, final forms of Buizel, Staravia (not a Staraptor at the time), and Squirtle. He also used a Donphan, which Ash also has.
- Kellyn's birthdate, according to the manga version of Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, is May 11.
- Kellyn's blood type is B.
- Kellyn is the first male player character to appear and have a major role in the main series anime (not including Pokémon Chronicles, which featured Jimmy) if Ash is not counted as Red.
- Kellyn is also the first male player character to meet Ash.
- In the manga, Kellyn has a Pachirisu, but in the anime, he doesn't have any Pokémon as a partner.
- Counting both main and side series, Kellyn and his counterpart Kate are the only player characters who don't wear any sort of headgear or headband.
