Heidi (Japanese: ヒナ Hina) is a character of the day who appeared in Bonnie for the Defense!. She is the particularly bossy leader of the self-appointed "Lapras Defense Force", together with Jay and Kye.


The children, especially Heidi, initially disliked grown-ups, believing them all to be liars. This was because she and her friends once found an abandoned Eevee. They cared for it, but were caught by a teacher. The teacher promised them nothing would happen as long as they were being honest, and after providing an explanation the teacher took the Eevee away from them.

Later, after a thunderstorm had happened, Heidi and her friends found traces of something dragging itself through the forest. They followed them and arrived at a lake where they met an injured Lapras. Although it appeared scared at first, the children quickly gained its trust and promised to protect it by forming the Lapras Defense Force.

In the present day, Heidi and her friends stopped Bonnie, who was taking a stroll through the forest. She started an argument with Bonnie, claiming the forest was their property and labeling her as arrogant. However, after Bonnie showed her Clemont's Dedenne, Heidi became a little more friendly to her, as she was amazed that Bonnie took care of a Pokémon at such a young age. Although she, Jay, and Kye did not want anyone to know about Lapras because of Pokémon poachers potentially going after it, they inadvertently told Bonnie about it when they introduced themselves as the Lapras Defense Force. When Bonnie heard Lapras's cry, they decided to introduce her to it.

While the kids played, Bonnie noticed Lapras was feverish and suggested the Defense Force get someone to help, however Heidi and the others were sceptical and feared for Lapras's safety. They were found by Ash, Clemont, and Serena, who echoed Bonnie's concerns that they get a Nurse Joy to help Lapras recover. Heidi and others started crying out of guilt, and they decided to call in Nurse Joy.

Nurse Joy quickly made Lapras feel better and also informed the children that the Eevee their teacher had taken away from them had been brought back safely to its Trainer, causing Jay and others to rethink their opposition to adults. After healing, Lapras started to cry out to the sky, and Clemont figured it had been separated from its friends, who were likely out at sea. After Bonnie had a word with the Lapras Defense Force, they decided that if they really loved Lapras, they would return it to its natural habitat. Later, Bonnie and the Lapras Defense Force made sure Lapras was returned to sea safely while Ash, Clemont, and Serena battled Team Rocket. The Lapras Defense Force said goodbye to Lapras as reunited with its friends, and hoped they would meet it again someday. The day after, Jay, Heidi, and Kye said their farewells to Ash and his friends.

She reappeared in a flashback in Till We Compete Again!.

Heidi, Jay, and Kye discovered Lapras in a lake and found out it was hurt. They befriended it and swore to treat it and protect it, even establishing the "Lapras Defense Force". Much later, they also introduced it to Bonnie, who also became friends with it.

After playing with Lapras, the children discovered its body was feeling hot and deduced it had not properly recovered from its wound. It was briefly treated by Clemont, but he suggested they should bring a Nurse Joy as Lapras had a serious fever. Nurse Joy arrived and quickly made Lapras recover. After healing, Lapras started to cry out for the sky. Clemont figured it wanted to return to its friends in the sea. Although the children were initially against the idea of letting Lapras return to its natural habitat, they decided that if they really loved it, they would help in returning it.

Moments later, Team Rocket appeared, wanting to steal Lapras. While Ash, Clemont, and Serena fought them, the Lapras Defense Force including Bonnie ensured Lapras was guided safely to the sea. Although it got confused by James's Inkay's Psybeam, Heidi made it remember the good times they had with it. After this, its friends quickly came to help it and froze Team Rocket with Ice Beam. Afterwards, Lapras said goodbye to the Lapras Defense Force as it returned to sea with it friends.

It reappeared in a flashback in Till We Compete Again!.

Lapras's only known move is Water Gun.
