From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Kyle (Japanese: カイト Kaito) is a Pokémon Coordinator that appeared in the Wallace Cup in episodes Staging a Heroes Welcome! through Strategy With A Smile!.
Kyle was a strong coordinator in the Wallace Cup as he was able to get past many of the participants, including Ash. 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.
Kyle first appeared with a brief cameo in Staging a Heroes' Welcome!, where he participated in the Appeals Round of the Wallace Cup.
He had a real major appearance in the following episode where he battled Ash and his Buizel in the Battle Round. He was able to predict what Ash was going to do in the match as he kept using Buizel in every round of the Wallace Cup. He won the match on points despite Buizel using its Ice Aqua Jet technique.
Kyle then went up against Dawn in the semi-finals. Despite his efforts, his Crawdaunt lost to Dawn and her Piplup's Bide and he was knocked out of the competition, placing in the Top 4.
| Lanturn is Kyle's strongest Pokémon, using it in the Wallace Cup against Ash and Buizel. Despite Ash and Buizel's determination to win, by this stage in the Wallace Cup it was experience that mattered and Kyle was able to easily dominate the match. However, by launching an Ice Beam, Lanturn unexpectedly helped Buizel use Ice Aqua Jet, a combination Dawn had unsuccessfully attempted to teach Buizel. This made Kyle lose a lot of points, however, it wasn't enough and the time ran out leaving Kyle victorious.
Lanturn's known moves are Charge, Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, and Hydro Pump.
