Calem (Japanese: カルム Calme) is the male player character in Pokémon X and Y, serves as the rival in the same games if the player chooses to play as the female character. As a rival, he is one of the player's neighbors and close friends. His female counterpart is Serena.

If playing as Calem, the player character may earn the title of Grand Duke by defeating most of the Trainers in the Battle Chateau. This is the only time the Trainer class Grand Duke appears in game.

Terminology

He is named Calem (Japanese: カルム Calme) when he appears as a non-player character in the Generation VI games. The same name would be reused for merchandise and in the Pokémon Masters EX mobile game. Pre-release media for Pokémon X and Y referred to Calem as Xavier (Japanese: エックス X).

In the core series games

As the protagonist

Calem is a boy living in Vaniville Town with his friends Serena, Tierno, Trevor, and Shauna. He recently moved into Vaniville Town. His mom owns a Rhyhorn and Fletchling, the latter of which wakes Calem up at the start of the game.

As a non-playable character

Calem is a young boy who lives in Vaniville Town when the protagonist moves into town. Calem is the main rival of the character, choosing the starter Pokémon which is super-effective to the player's. He is also the character who teaches the player and Shauna how to catch a Pokémon, catching a Bunnelby with the use of his Fletchling. Soon after, he can be seen in Santalune Forest with the other friends.

Calem is the child of two prominent Pokémon battlers, and is seen as one of the two best battlers of the group of friends, alongside the protagonist.

At Glittering Cave, Calem helps the player defeat Team Flare to save the fossil assistant, and is given the fossil not chosen afterward. He then battles with the player against Tierno and Trevor at Route 7. At the Tower of Mastery in Shalour City, Calem battles the player for the chance to get the Mega Ring.

The next time Calem battles the player is in front of the Coumarine Gym.

When the group of friends meets up and decides to go to the haunted area in Route 14, Calem is the only one of the friends to not go to the house, claiming that he has to train. He then helps the player defeat Team Flare at the Poké Ball Factory.

The next time Calem battles the player is in front of the Anistar Gym. After the player defeats the gym, he will ask for a rematch, but cancels his challenge after Lysandre announces his plan of eradicating all life forms not a part of Team Flare. He then helps the player defeat Team Flare get to the legendary Pokémon and defeat Team Flare for good.

After the player enters the Hall of Fame and battles at the Battle Maison, Calem can be battled in Kiloude City, at which point he has obtained a Mega Ring of his own. When defeated for the first time here, he will give the player an Absolite and tell the player to meet Professor Sycamore in Anistar City. He can be battled at Kiloude City once per day.

Pokémon

As the player character, Calem can have up to all 721 Pokémon available in the Kalos games. As an NPC, he uses a selection of Pokémon through out the story to battle the player, including usage of Mega Evolution. Calem is required to pick between Chespin, Fennekin or Froakie as his first partner Pokémon. As the player, he will choose the Pokémon first, as NPC, Calem will pick the starter with the type advantage over the player.

As the player, he is also required to catch either XerneasX or YveltalY.
