Kidd Summers (Japanese: キッド・サマーズ Kid Summers) is a major character in the third Advanced Generation series movie, Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

History

Kidd first appeared at Cameran Palace taking part in the town of Rota's annual tournament to decide the "Hero of the Year", dressed in a traditional knight's armor. She and one of her Weavile lost in the final to Ash and his Pikachu, where she revealed herself as a woman.

After dancing with Brock at the ceremonial ball, she slipped away, changing into her normal outfit to research the connection between Mew and the Tree of Beginning. From the roof of the palace, she sent her two Weavile to place a tracking device on Mew, but they both failed due to the efforts of Ash and May's Pokémon. She then met up with Ash and his friends to try and find Pikachu, with the help of Lucario, after Mew took it and Meowth to the Tree of Beginning.

Throughout her journey, Kidd often kept in contact with her commander, Lieutenant Banks, transmitting information about Mew, Lucario, and the Tree of Beginning to him. She was one of the many people attacked by the red blob "antibodies" produced by the Tree of Beginning to keep humans away, being captured and "eaten" by one, after sending out her Weavile to keep them safe. However, she was quickly brought back thanks to Mew. She also helped Mew after it fell ill, due to the gradual destruction of the Tree of Beginning. After Mew and the Tree were saved, Banks told Kidd that she would make a fortune from selling the story of her adventure, but she turns it down to keep the Tree safe.

During the credits, she is seen waving goodbye to Ash and his friends as they returned on their journey. Her final appearance is visiting Forina alongside Butler and Diane.

It is initially implied that Kidd was a villain, with Meowth even stating that it "Looks like Team Rocket may not be the only crooks around here." As the movie progresses, however, it is shown that Kidd simply wants to research Mew, and scolds her Pokémon when they attack it, saying "I should send you both to obedience school!" Despite this line, Kidd cares for her Pokémon very much, as shown when she let her Weavile out to save themselves while being attacked by the red blobs in the Tree of Beginning.

Character

Kidd Summers has a world record for holding the most world records. Some of these records include a record for making the quickest trip around the world in a hot-air balloon, deepest one-man submarine dive, and longest independent space walk.
