'''Hoopa''' (Japanese: '''フーパ''' ''Hoopa'') is a major character who appeared in ''[[M18|Hoopa and the Clash of Ages]]''. It also starred in ''[[SS034|Hoopa — The Mischief Pokémon]]'' and the ''[[Hoopa's Surprise Ring Adventures]]'' shorts, leading up to the movie's release.
 
==HistoryIn the movies==
Hoopa first appeared in ''[[Hoopa's Surprise Ring Adventures]]''. In this series of six shorts, Hoopa used its hyperspace powers to cause trouble for {{Ash}} and {{AP|Pikachu}}.
 
Hoopa summoned {{p|Lugia}} to battle the shadow, and later also {{p|Latios}}, {{p|Latias}}, and a {{Shiny}} {{p|Rayquaza}} as reinforcements. In counter, Hoopa Unbound summoned [[Primal Reversion|Primal]] {{p|Groudon}}, Primal {{p|Kyogre}}, {{p|Dialga}}, {{p|Palkia}}, {{p|Giratina}}, and {{p|Kyurem}} to fight against them. A climactic battle ensued, during which Baraz managed to recreate the Prison Bottle, which was then once again used to seal Hoopa Unbound. Unfortunately, Ash ended up touching the bottle, causing him to become possessed by the shadow. Thankfully, Hoopa was able to make up with the shadow, dispelling the darkness inside it and setting Ash free. Hoopa then proceeded to save the citizens of Dahara City from the space-time distortion caused by the summoning of all the Legendary Pokémon, even overcoming its disability to travel through its own rings in the process. Afterwards, Hoopa decided to help in repairing the damages done to the city before returning home with Baraz and Meray.
 
===Personality and characteristics===
In its Confined Forme, Hoopa is a very simple-minded, innocent Pokémon who loves to pull pranks on unsuspecting people. It playfully referred to Ash and Pikachu as "Ashkan" and "Pikan", and would use its ability to summon everything and anything for its own amusement. Despite its playful and mischievous nature, Hoopa has a good heart and is capable of protecting its friends when the time is needed. Hoopa also loves donuts, not only for their delicious taste, but also for their shape.
 
In both forms, Hoopa likes to be unpredictable, often asking, "Were you surprised?" and referring to itself in third person. When using the rings to summon something it occasionally uses the catchphrase "Alléhooparing" (Japanese: '''おでまし''' ''Appear''), derived from the phrase "Alley-oop". It also refers to its summoning as "ringing".
