This Chespin is a Grass-type Starter Pokémon owned by Clemont. He is Pancham's arch-rival.


By nature, Chespin is extremely gluttonous, especially when he comes across macarons, which is his favorite food to the extent that he would put himself in danger just to get them. He also tries to help people who are in danger, such as chasing after Team Rocket in order to save Professor Sycamore, Serena, and Bonnie. Chespin is also intelligent, as he was able to understand that the pieces of macaron that were left behind by Serena were markers, or was able to deduce that the cord he came across before was the power source for the "Mega Mega Mega Mecha Meowth" and thus tried to unplug it. Like Bunnelby, Chespin has a kind, friendly, and happy-go lucky personality, but isn't as mature as Bunnelby. In An Oasis of Hope, Chespin is also good on acting when he convinces Pikachu to act as being captured by Team Rocket while guarded by a rogue Grumpig and using its Vine Whip to serve as a lockpick to unlock the lock from the cage. He is also very determined to battle against Team Rocket and being teamed up with Ash's Pikachu to blasts them off with both of their Electro Ball and Pin Missile combination. In later episodes, Chespin also loves Serena's home made Poké Puffs as a replacement for his macarons.

At the start of Mega-Mega Meowth Madness, Ash and company discover Chespin at Professor Sycamore's Pokémon research lab when they notice that the macarons are missing, and one the employees named Sophie discovers and shows the group Chespin, who is hiding behind a plant, and eating the macarons. After telling off Chespin because of his behavior, Chespin jabs Clemont in his hand with one of the spikes on his head, before taking a handful of the macarons and running off, with Sophie explaining that Chespin enjoys macarons a bit too much, and is known for being a bit of a prankster.

He is also quite fond of Clemont after he saves him from getting hit which he also gives him some macarons and later he shares the macarons to Ash and the group including Professor Sycamore despite Clemont telling him to save some or there would be nothing left for him.

Chespin has a heated rivalry with Serena's Pancham when they first met due to the latter throws two twigs on his head and taunting him on purpose due to its mischievous behavior especially that he was the one responsible for instigating their fight. His rivalry with Pancham is similar to both Ash's Snivy and Iris' Emolga when they fight each other and showing their dislike with one another. Their heated rivalry is demonstrated in Pathways to Performance Partnering! after he ate most of Serena's Poké Puffs for everyone causing Pancham to get angry. They are usually seen arguing, fighting each other for small things and their bragging rights in who is the best. This also happens in the latest Pikachu's shorts where he bumps Pancham to be the best musical performer during the song performance while the latter does the same. Both are later seen headbutting at each other and running so fast while sticking each other's cheeks similar to both Ash's Pikachu and Raichu did in Pikachu's Vacation until they are bumped into a sleeping Snorlax.

In Love Strikes! Eevee, Yikes!, Both Chespin and Pancham gain a new rivalry towards a wild Quilladin which is Chespin's evolved form who is easily in love with Serena's Eevee until she rejects him at the same time to make him feel heartbroken as Serena tells him that Eevee is a little shy towards others.

Furthermore, Chespin is similar to Ash's Oshawott when it pops out of his Poké Ball and falling in love easily on other female Pokémon and at the same time he was left heartbroken when seeing female Pokémon comes across with another male Pokémon or both Pokémons are very close with one another. This trait is also shared by a wild Quilladin due to their evolutionary relation.

Pokémon the Series: XY and XYZ

Chespin was one of the three Starter Pokémon that Professor Sycamore had kept to give to new Trainers.

When Ash and his friends were visiting Professor Sycamore's lab and eating some of Serena's macaroons, Chespin stole some and began eating them himself. Clemont tries to make friends with him but ends up getting poked by Chespin's spikes. Chespin grabs the macaroons and ran away. However, after witnessing Professor Sycamore, Serena, and Bonnie getting captured by Team Rocket, Chespin decided to go and help Clemont and Ash rescue them, using the trail of macaroons that were left behind by Dedenne as markers. Once they found them, Chespin curiously went inside the hideout to try to find macaroons. But it ended up revealing itself to Team Rocket and accidentally caused them to know about Ash and Clemont's presence. When Team Rocket unleashed their Mega Mega Mega Mecha Meowth machine, Clemont pushed Chespin out of harm's way as it was about to get crushed. Afterwards, Clemont and Chespin started bonding for a bit. Chespin located the source of the power and assisted Clemont into pulling to plug in order to stop Team Rocket's machine. However, Team Rocket had a back-up generator and continued fighting. Chespin then assisted everyone into battling the machine, but to no avail. All of a sudden, a Mega Blaziken and it's trainer who is named Blaziken Mask arrived and weaken the machine with Flamethrower. This allowed Chespin and Pikachu to finish the battle and send Team Rocket flying. At the end of the day, Chespin asked Clemont to join him on his adventures, which he gladly accepted.[1]

In one episode, Chespin becomes obese when he kept eating macarons but during the sparring match with Ash's Froakie, he is unable to move because of its weight.
