NanakoIn the original Japanese version, Casey speaks with a Kansai dialect, which would suggest that she is from the Pokémon world's equivalent of Osaka, Goldenrod City. Adding to this is Casey's love of the Electabuzz baseball team, an analogue to the real world Osaka baseball team, the Hanshin Tigers. Not only is there a similarity in both Electabuzz and tigers being striped animals, but the Hanshin Tigers are known for having a very loyal fanbase.
Casey has been compared to Ash in his early days of Pokémon training. However, they have different styles of training, and different tastes in Pokémon.
Over the years, Ash Ketchum (Satoshi) has traveled to many different regions in the Pokemon world. Each new region brings a new generation of Pokemon with it and the anime features Ash and his pal Pikachu catching a new team of Pokemon with each new adventure.
Pokemon has always featured Satoshi (Ash) challenging Gyms to win badges and enter the Pokemon League. But Gym battles are not the only path open to a Pokemon trainer. Aspiring, young trainers can also work hard to win Showcases, Contests, and a number of other events with their Pokemon partners.
