Rango (Japanese: シブ Shibu) is a recurring character who appeared in the Pokémon anime. He is Kiawe and Mimo's father and the husband of Sima. He is also the president of his family's ranch, Paniola Ranch in the anime.

In the anime

Rango debuted in Young Kiawe Had a Farm!, at his families home at Paniola Ranch.

He appeared during a flashback in A Crowning Moment of Truth!, where he was with Kiawe and Sima as they all visited a festival on Akala Island, where Trainers get their Pokémon to wear the Wela Crown (Japanese ヴェラの冠 Crown of Wela).

In The Young Flame Strikes Back!, the future of the ranch came under threat by a businessman named Viren, who wanted to turn it into a hotel. The ranch was saved when Officer Jenny arrested Viren for forging land owner documents, following his defeat by Marowak.

Rango appeared during a flashback in Filling the Light with Darkness!, where Kiawe revealed that he had been sleeping due to the effects of a Necrozma, whilst he and Mimo worked on the farm.

In Lillier and the Staff!, Rango watched Kiawe perform in the school play.

In the games

In Pokémon Sun and Moon, Kiawe's father does not have a name. He is a rancher living in Paniola Town with his wife and son. He states that Kiawe has always been a lonely child and hopes that the player will stay friends with him.
