Kiyo (Japanese: ノブヒコ Nobuhiko) is a Black Belt and the leader of the Fighting Dojo. His name was not revealed until Generation II. However, in Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen, Let's Go, Pikachu!, and Let's Go, Eevee!, he is named Koichi (Japanese: タケノリ Takenori).

He is known as the Karate MasterRBYFRLGPE/Karate KingGSCHGSS (Japanese: カラテだいおうRBYGSCFRLGHGSS / からてだいおうPE Great Karate King) and is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Karate Master (Japanese: からてだいおう Great Karate King).

In the games

Black Belt Kiyo is a leader of Fighting Dojo in Saffron City. At one point, Kiyo was the Gym Leader of Saffron City until his Gym lost official privileges as a result of a duel between himself and Sabrina. It has since become a place where he and his students train Karate. The player obtains a Hitmonlee or a Hitmonchan as a reward for beating Kiyo. Later, in Generation II and their remakes, he is found training at Mt. Mortar. To reach him, the player must travel through a lengthy maze section within the mountain. Upon defeating him, Kiyo will give the player a Tyrogue if there is an empty slot in the party. His Karate Gym in Saffron is disbanded now, but one of Kiyo's students can still be found there.

In Pokémon X and Y, Kiyo can be found in Lumiose City, trying to start a new Fighting Dojo at a small apartment he has rented in Centrico Boulevard. His business doesn't seem to be running smoothly, however, as a Battle Girl at the apartment tells that he's only getting new students signing up by telling them he's running a dance studio.

In the anime

In the main series

Kiyo appeared as a character of the day in A Tyrogue Full of Trouble!. He is a former student of Chuck's and was in training to compete in the P1 Grand Prix. Despite many protests from the nearby townspeople and concerns Ash and his friends had about it, he desired to earn the trust of an abandoned Tyrogue. Kiyo saved Tyrogue from a rockslide and later defeated him in hand-to-hand battle, earning his respect. Tyrogue and his wild Pokémon friends then joined Kiyo's team.

Despite the appearance of the Saffron City Fighting Dojo in Pasta La Vista, Kiyo was not shown in this episode and the leader was another character.

Kiyo's Tyrogue
Tyrogue
Before joining Kiyo, Tyrogue was abandoned by his original Trainer in the mountains. This led Tyrogue to become bitter and it began lashing out towards any humans who approached it. It wore a blue neckerchief as a reminder of its abandonment. At some point it befriended a wild Mankey and Primeape, and together the trio got up to mischief in nearby villages.

However, Tyrogue was still protective of smaller Pokémon. It leaped in to save Misty's Togepi from some rampaging Tauros. Later it gave a trio of wild Pokémon some fruit to eat after noticing that they appeared hungry. After Jessie stole the fruit from a Sandshrew, Tyrogue hit out at the Team Rocket trio and sent them blasting off.

Kiyo battled Tyrogue with his Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan; however, Tyrogue was able to take both of them out. Kiyo then battled Tyrogue himself and won, thus earning Tyrogue's respect. He gave Tyrogue a replacement red neckerchief, made from his own armband, to commemorate the new friendship.

Tyrogue's known moves are Swift, Tackle, Headbutt, Double Team, and Jump Kick*.
