Akane (Japanese: アカネ) is a recurring character in the manga series How I Became a Pokémon Card. She appears in the chapter Akane-Colored Eevee. Akane is a little girl who was raised by her grandfather after her parents died after her birth.
Akane is raised by her grandfather after her parents died after her birth. She loves flowers a lot and often scolds her Eevee when it plays in the flower garden. Even though she owns an Eevee, she really hates Pokémon and thinks that they are only good for fighting. When her Eevee is later taken away from Team Rocket, she learns from her grandfather that when she was a baby she loved Pokémon. It was also the reason her grandfather decided to research Pokémon and was given an Eevee.

| Eevee is Akane's first Pokémon, given as a present by her grandfather. Eevee loves to follow Akane even though it makes her angry. After running into the park, Akane gives her "sick" Eevee to Team Rocket to cure it.

- Akane shares the same Japanese name with as the Gym Leader Whitney.
- Coincidentally all the Pokémon (except for Nidoran ♂) she has had are Normal-type, which is Whitney's specialty. However, the Gym Leader owned a Nidorina (an evolution of Nidoran ♂'s female counterpart) in the anime.
