Randall (Japanese: ランディ Randy) is a character of the day who appeared in Kindergarten Chaos!. He is one of the students in Penelope's kindergarten class. Randall doesn't have anything against Pokémon, but he is shown to be very timid around them.
While the other kids were playing with Ash and his friends's Pokémon, Ash noticed Randall in the distance running away. The kindergarten principal tried to get him to meet the Pokémon, but he was reluctant to get close to Froakie or Dedenne, even when assured by Ash and Bonnie that there was nothing to be afraid of. Randall then revealed that his fear of Pokémon was because of a previous incident involving a Beedrill. Though Ash and his friends tried to reassure him again, Randall was still convinced that Pokémon were scary.
Suddenly, Team Rocket pulled up in front of the school, disguised as children's entertainers, causing everyone to run up to the entertainment, with Randall being dragged along and up onstage. When Team Rocket's scheme was revealed, everyone else escaped, but Randall, along with Pikachu, Froakie, and Penelope's Sylveon were left in the stage truck on their getaway. While in the truck, when he realized Sylveon and other Pokémon were friends and not tricksters, Randall finally got over his fear of Pokémon. Therefore, he desired to help save the captive Pokémon together with Ash, which they both accomplished with force.
After Ash defeated Team Rocket, Penelope took them back to the kindergarten. After sharing his story of saving Pikachu and Sylveon to the class, Randall reiterated that Froakie and the other Pokémon were his friends, which Ash seconded. Upon bidding farewell to Ash and his friends, he agreed to have a battle with Ash in the future.
|Sylveon is owned by Randall's teacher Penelope.
As with other Pokémon, Randall was afraid of Sylveon at first. But when Sylveon was stolen along with Pikachu with Randall in tow, he realized how friendly Pokémon can be and helped to save it. Sylveon expressed thanks to him and returned the favor by protecting him from Team Rocket's attacks.
Randall helped save Pikachu along with Sylveon from Team Rocket's captivity. Although he was not comfortable around Pokémon before, he began to have second thoughts about Pikachu when he realized how much he needed his help. By the end of the episode, he declared Pikachu, along with the other Pokémon, to be his friends.
As with the other Pokémon, Randall was timid around Froakie. However, when both of them were left behind in the truck due to isolation from the group, they took a liking to each other. This was strengthened when Froakie helped in freeing Pikachu and Sylveon. At the end of the episode, the two exchanged a handshake as they bid farewell.
