==HistoryIn the movies==
[[File:Kodai Young.png|thumb|left|250px|Young Kodai]]
As a young man, Grings Kodai traveled to Crown City after reading about its legends and history. In particular, he was interested in the city's relationship with {{p|Celebi}} and hoped to use the Pokémon's [[time travel]] abilities for his own ends. During an attempt to capture Celebi, Kodai ended up being connected through his capture device to Celebi's [[Time Ripple]] and absorbed its energy with the resulting shockwave completely wiping out all plant life in Crown City. Kodai found that, although he had failed to capture Celebi, he had managed to gain the power to see visions of the future. Using this new ability, Kodai quickly became a rich and successful businessman.
 
During the credits of the movie, the news report published by Karl and Rowena revealed that Kodai and Goone were both arrested and sent to jail for their crimes.

===Character===
[[File:Kodai defeated.png|thumb|250px|Kodai realizing his defeat]]
Kodai is known as a ruthlessly ambitious man who is widely recognized for his business success, even having a magazine published following his exploits. By the time of the movie, Kodai is the president of a powerful corporation bearing his name, the Kodai Network, with a secretary named [[Rowena]] and a bodyguard called [[Goone]]. However, his success is due to a mysterious power; at times, he will painfully hallucinate and receive a vision of the future.
He is also shown to be incapable of feeling any remorse about his violent and destructive behavior. However, his two greatest weaknesses are his over-dependence on his future sight, which he used to gain his vast wealth and power, and his fear of losing that ability which he believed would gradually lead to the loss of everything he gained. Additionally, he is an extremely prideful man, which ultimately leads to his undoing.

===Technology===
[[File:Illusion Canceler.png|thumb|250px|The Illusion Canceler]]
Kodai's vast wealth enables his access to a significant amount of high-tech equipment needed for his mission. Among the tools he is seen using:
* '''Remote cameras''': Several flight-enabled camera units used to carry out surveillance on many areas at once.
* '''Video editing software''': An extremely powerful, high-tech video editing program. It is capable of taking input from several video feeds at once and splicing pieces of them into one falsified, impossible-to-distinguish video.
