Calem is the male protagonist from the X and Y games. His home at the start of the game is Vaniville Town. His female counterpart is Serena.


Calem is a bit tall for his age and thin boy, and has straight, chin length black hair with gray eyes and wears a dark red hat with sunglasses. He also wears a blue track jacket with white stripes, navy blue slim fit pants, and black combat boots with blue laces. He carries around a black messenger bag with blue decals on it. He has a Mega Ring on his left wrist.

If the player is female, he does not wear a hat.


When acting as the player's rival, Calem appears to be a very mature trainer with a deeply ingrained sense of justice. He openly threatens Team Flare several times throughout the game, and provides the player's character with advice and support. He cares greatly about all Pokemon, and asists the player in battling Team Flare on several occasions. He is a good sportsman, who does not take losing badly, merely using it as an opportunity to improve himself. It is mentioned that both of his parents are experienced Pokemon Trainers.

  • 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 main 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.
