Calem is a tall and svelte seventeen year old boy. He has straight, medium length black hair and gray eyes. He wears a red Outdoors Cap and black Wide-Frame Sunglasses if you play as him, he doesn't wear them if he is your neighbor. He also wears a blue zipped jacket with white stripes, blue skinny jeans, black ankle socks, and black short boots with blue laces. He carries around a black two-tone bag with blue decals on it. He wears his Mega Ring on his left wrist.

Here, you can battle him all the times you want, but only once per day.

Trivia

  • Prior to the release of Pokémon X and Y, pre-release media referred to Calem as 'Xavier'.
  • He has a very close resemblance with Hilbert, the male protagonist from the Generation V's Pokemon Black & White.
  • Rather than having more summer focused clothes (skin baring) like his female counterpart, Calem has a larger variety of purchasable clothes better fit for cold weather, such as jackets and hoodies.
  • Ash Ketchum's outfit for traveling through the Kalos region is based on Calem's own starter outfit.
  • Unlike some other game protagonists, Calem is estimated to have began his journey at around his late teens. In the post-game of XY, Emma is 16, making Calem estimated to be around 17, due to him being older than Emma.
