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. At some point after the events of the FireRed & LeafGreen 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.

Kimberly made a cameo appearance in Epilogue on a ship to the Battle Frontier.

Kimberly is based on the old woman living on Cape Brink in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, a Move Tutor known for teaching Frenzy Plant to Venusaur, Blast Burn to Charizard, or Hydro Cannon to Blastoise.
