(Japanese: シューティー Shooti) is a Pokémon Trainer from the Unova region and a rival of Ash.


Shooti was introduced in BW001 as a beginning Trainer ready to choose his first Pokémon. After meeting with Professor Araragi, he chose Snivy as his new partner. Shortly after obtaining it, he challenged Ash Ketchum to a Pokémon battle. He had much interest in battling Pikachu, a species that is foreign in his region. Because Pikachu could not use any Electric attacks, Shooti easily defeated Ash.

Shooti appeared again at a Battle Club in BW010, where he and Ash had a 5 on 5 battle. He offered to have a full battle with Ash, which means that he has access to at least 6 Pokémon. His Hatooboo defeated Ash's Oshawott and Tepig in one hit with its Super Luck-boosted Aerial Ace. Afterwards, Shooti called Ash's Pikachu and Snivy to be so-so, and the rest of his team to be hopeless causes.

Shooti's camera as seen in BW001

Shooti is a Pokémon photographer, in which he takes photos of Pokémon and places with a green digital camera. In BW010, he is also shown to possess a Live Caster.

He is a quiet individual who prefers to keep his emotions to himself and becomes annoyed by Ash's overly-expressive personality, referring to him as a hillbilly multiple times. He insults Ash by calling him a weak Trainer. He bears many parallels to Paul.

Despite having just started out as a Trainer, Shooti already implements many strategies in his battling. He has defeated Ash both times that they have battled, despite Ash being a much more experienced Trainer.
