Kiko (right) and Kato

Kiko (Japanese: カコ Kako) is one of the two characters Ash and his friends meet in the beginning of the third Diamond & Pearl series Pokémon movie, Arceus and the Jewel of Life. She, along with Kato, had a Tag Battle with Ash and Dawn for the watermelons. During that battle, they explained the Michina Ruins to the Trainers. As Ash and his friends return from the corrected past, with Arceus subsequently recognizing Ash from the past events and restoring the destruction, Kato and Kiko can be seen by a bridge witnessing the regeneration of the bridge's structure.


Kiko's Beautifly
Kiko used Beautifly in the Tag Battle against Ash and Dawn over the watermelons that Kato and Kiko had collected but had washed down the river. In the battle, Beautifly was partnered with Kato's Heracross and proved to be a very difficult opponent, almost defeating Pikachu and Piplup. However, in the end it was defeated by Pikachu's Thunderbolt while trapped by Piplup's Whirlpool. After the battle, Beautifly was seen enjoying the watermelons along with the others.

Beautifly's known moves are Solar Beam, Silver Wind, and Shadow Ball.
