From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Kato (Japanese: カンタ Kanta) is one of the two characters Ash and company meet in the beginning of the movie Arceus and the Jewel of Life.
He is accompanied by Kiko. Kato, along with Kiko, battled with Ash and Dawn for the watermelons and also introduced Ash and his friends the idea of seeing the ruins of their town. As Ash and his friends return from the corrected past, with Arceus subsequently recognizing Ash from the past events and restoring the destruction, Kato and Kiko can be seen by a bridge witnessing the regeneration of the bridge's structure. Kato and Kiko also make a brief appearance in the credits when they are seen eating corn on the back of a tractor. His Japanese voice actress is Motoko Kumai and his English voice actor is Tom Wayland.
