Ben is a trainer from Vaniville Town, where he, along with his cousin Gwen, set off on a Pokémon journey. Upon arriving in Aquacorde Town, they find Trevor, the assistant to Professor Sycamore, has been robbed of a starter Pokémon. Ben goes and chases the thief, named Kevin, trying to get the Pokémon back. He loses, and Kevin escapes.
Ben's goal is to become a Pokémon Master, and is quite gifted in catching Pokémon. By the end of his first episode, he had used up all his initial Pokéballs, giving him a total of 6 Pokémon (while only three are shown on screen at that time)
