Kyle (Japanese: カイ Kai) is a character who appeared in Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea.
Kyle is Meredith's husband, Lizabeth's father and Ship's son. He is a descendant of the People of the Water, denoted by his blue crystal necklace. He performs in the Marina Group's water shows, and was seen wearing a Vaporeon-inspired costume.
Kyle rode a Dewgong whilst he, his family, Ash, and his friends visited an ancient People of the Water site. He explained that the Sea Temple, Samiya, blends into the water and traverses the ocean to avoid being seen and plundered by greedy people. For much of the remainder of the movie, he piloted his father's ship, Blue Lagoon, as they made their way towards Samiya. He remained aboard the ship with Meredith and Ship while Lizabeth was in the midst of escorting Ash and his friends to find Manaphy when their submersible got caught in a current and took them to Samiya.
When the Sea Crown rose from the ocean, he, his family, and Ash's group were surrounded in a mystical golden light and soared through the sky and ocean.
He is not present in the manga series of the ninth movie.
