Khoury (Japanese: カズナリ Kazunari) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. He is a Pokémon Breeder and a traveling partner of Lyra. He made his debut appearance in An Egg Scramble!.


Khoury after catching a Pokémon

Khoury traveled to Sinnoh with Lyra and his father where they all took part in the Johto Festival. He wanted to visit Sinnoh so that he could observe and hopefully catch the resident Pokémon. He was also interested in learning about Pokémon breeding and asked if Brock would mentor him.

In A Rivalry to Gible On!, after encountering a wild Gible, Khoury became determined to catch it to raise it into "an awesome Gabite", which he eventually did after a closely-fought competition with Ash, who had the same goal.

In Bagged Then Tagged!, he had a Tag Battle with Lyra against Ash and Dawn. Despite his Totodile evolving into Croconaw during the match, he and Lyra eventually lost. At the end, Khoury, his father, and Lyra left on a blimp headed to Johto and said their good-byes. Khoury had also agreed to become Lyra's traveling buddy, upon her request.


Khoury tends to panic very easily but is always very excited to meet a new Pokémon.


This is a listing of Khoury's known Pokémon in the anime:

After a battle between the Pokémon, Gible was eventually worn down and caught by Khoury. Afterwards, Gible was seen happily eating with the other Pokémon.
