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 first appeared 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).
Rango reappeared in The Young Flame Strikes Back!, where 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.
Rango reappeared in Lillier and the Staff!, where he watched Kiawe perform in the school play.
