From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Kimberly (Japanese: キワメ Kiwame) is an old woman who lives on Boon Island in the Pokémon Adventures manga.
Kimberly is known as the "guardian of ultimate attacks," and has been known to require Trainers to go through trials known as the Path of Skipping, Path of Catching, and Path of Battling in order for their Pokémon to learn these techniques. Through these trials, Red's Saur was able to learn Frenzy Plant and Blue's Charizard was able to learn Blast Burn. Kimberly later taught Green's Blasty Hydro Cannon without having to go through the trials.
During the battle at Trainer Tower, Kimberly stole a huge amount of items from Team Rocket, including an Old Sea Map that would have been used to locate Faraway Island, the home of Mew. She contacted Mr. Briney, an old friend of hers, but by sheer coincidence Briney informed her that he had found Faraway Island shortly before she called him, and that Mew was headed towards the Kanto region.
After the FireRed & LeafGreen chapter, in which the five Pokédex holders were turned to stone, Kimberly handed Professor Oak some data that she had taken from Team Rocket which held information on Jirachi, thereby beginning the plan to save the petrified Trainers in the Emerald chapter. She took both Crystal and Gold under her tutelage to help teach Exbo to learn how to use Blast Burn after two months of training, and Megaree to learn how to use Frenzy Plant. She also handed Gold a Faraway Island soil sample Briney had given her, who in turn gave it to Emerald so he could stop Guile Hideout's mind-controlled rental Pokémon army.
Kimberly made a final cameo appearance in Epilogue, on a ship to the Battle Frontier.
