Cheren is one of two friends/rivals the main character has in Pokémon Black and White. All three of them reside in Nuvema Town. He is the rival that picks the Pokémon that has a type advantage against the player character's.

Appearance

Cheren is a tall, slender young man with very pale skin, black eyes, and jet-black hair with a small tuft that sticks up from the top of his head.

Black and White

Cheren wears a blue coat and a white shirt with an orange Y-shaped pattern, a black belt with a silver clasp, black dress pants, and blue shoes. He sports spectacles with orange rims. 

Black 2 and White 2

Appearing somewhat older, Cheren has long hair and wears a white dress-shirt, an orange necktie, blue dress pants, and brown shoes. Cheren also does not wear glasses any longer.

Personality

Cheren is a very serious, studious Trainer, whose goal is to become the Champion. He is rather stoical, but kind and respectful to the player character.

Etymology

The name Cheren comes from čéren (Bulgarian for "black"). This goes alongside Bianca's name, who comes from "white".

Biography

Black and White

Cheren is a very intelligent boy. His starter will always have an advantage over it and he will often challenge the player character to battles.

Cheren appears at the beginning of the game as one of the player character's friends. He is one of the characters who receives a starter as a present from Professor Juniper. His starter will always have an advantage over the player character's, and he will often challenge them to battles.

Since Bianca chose the Pokémon with a type disadvantage against the player character's, he has no other choice but to take the Pokémon with a type advantage, though he said he wanted that Pokémon from the start. He later reappears many times throughout the game to battle the player character, sometimes giving them items when he or she defeats him. His goal, like many other previous rivals, is to become the Pokémon champion. The player character challenges Cheren right before entering Victory Road and is then seen with Champion Alder before the player character faces N and Ghetsis.

After defeating N and Ghetsis, Cheren appears before the player's house, where he says that he is going to explore the region, starting from Route 1.

He can be seen outside of Nimbasa City, where he recalls the day that he met Alder, and how it was the start of his new look on becoming stronger. He then says he will go to the Pokémon League, where the player may choose to battle him once per day atop Victory Road.

Black 2 and White 2

Cheren appears in Pokémon Black and White Version 2 as a Normal-type Gym Leader. He serves as a replacement for Lenora and will award the Basic Badge to challengers who defeat him. On a call on the Xtransceiver, he will talk about the types the Pokémon are weak against and the Pokémon abilities. He also appears often throughout the course to help the player character out or to give them advice.

Route 5 (Memory Link)

Trivia

  • Cheren's Gym Leader title in Pokémon Black 2 and White Versions 2 is "The one who seeks the right path".
  • He is the only character to change skin color between a game and its sequel, and not due to localization.
  • In Black and White, Cheren is the first rival to wear glasses.
  • He is one of only three characters in Black and White to have animated sprites; Bianca and N are the other two.
  • His Elemental Monkey matches the type of the player character's starter in Black and White.
    • In the memory Link battle, it was replaced by the one which is weak to the player character's original Black and White starter choice.
  • Like Blue, Cheren is the rival in the Pokémon series to become a Gym Leader in the direct sequel to the game he was introduced in.
    • Both Trainers give out a badge introduced in their introductory game.
      • Also, while Blue and Janine (the latter taking over in Fuchsia City for her now-Elite Four dad Koga) keep their gyms in the same location they originally were in, Cheren relocates the gym giving out the Basic Badge to a B2W2-exclusive location in Aspertia City.
  • It is revealed that Cheren had just recently become a Gym Leader, because when the player character was about to challenge him, he said it was his "First battle as a Gym Leader".
  • Strangely, in Black and White, Cheren wears glasses, but in B2W2 he doesn't. This is noticed by Colress.
