Kyle (Japanese: カイト Kaito) is a recurring character in the anime. He is a Pokémon Coordinator who participated in the Wallace Cup.

History

Kyle first appeared in Staging a Heroes Welcome! as a brief cameo. He was one of the Coordinators who participated in the Performance Stage. Using Cloyster, he was able to get to the Battle Round.

In Pruning a Passel of Pals!, Kyle had a real major appearance in the episode where he battled Ash and his Buizel in the Battle Round. He pointed out how the other participants used different Pokémon since the first round and Ash kept on using Buizel. As such, Kyle predicted what Ash was going to do in the match. Despite Ash perfecting Buizel's Ice Aqua Jet technique, it was not enough and Kyle won the match.

Kyle then went up against Dawn in the semifinals. Their battle started in Strategy with a Smile!. Despite his Crawdaunt knowing some moves and being fully evolved, he and Crawdaunt lost to Dawn and her Piplup as Piplup's Bide unleashed double the power back at Crawdaunt. As such, Kyle was knocked out of the competition, placing in the Top 4.

Character

Kyle was shown to be a very confident person, as shown with his battle against Ash and his Buizel. He was also a strong Coordinator in the Wallace Cup as he was able to get past many of the participants until his battle with Dawn.

Unlike the other participants in the tournament who battled Ash, he was the only one who pointed out Ash's strategy of using only Buizel instead of multiple Pokémon, which made Ash react angrily. Because of this and Ash getting preoccupied with the situation, he was able to defeat Ash.
