The thief is a character from Pokémon Gotta Catch 'Em All.
The thief first appeared in Run Out the Thieves! as a picture on a wanted sign Shu and Pikachu were looking at. Her Pokémon kidnap Shu and tie him up while Pikachu gets locked in a cage. Shu sends out his Wooper but the thief's Sneasel and Houndoom get the best of it with Blizzard and Flamethrower. Their attacks caused Wooper to bounce off to a cage. Shu provoked the thief and she had her Sneasel and Houndoom attack but it was something that Shu actually planned as Wooper used Double Team before their attacks connected. With Pikachu freed, Pikachu and Wooper incapacitate the thief with a combination of Thunder and Water Gun aimed at the sky. The thief and her Pokémon get defeated but the thief ran off with an item she just took from Shu.
