Anthea and Concordia as seen in the Black and White introduction

Pokémon Black and White

Anthea and Concordia are first seen in the opening sequence of Black and White. The player only encounters them in N's Castle, where Anthea heals the player's Pokémon, while Concordia tells the player more about N's past and Ghetsis.

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

Anthea and Concordia are seen in the original Team Plasma's safehouse in Driftveil City. They give the player more backstory about themselves and N, revealing that all three of them were orphans that Ghetsis took in. They were then put in charge of caring for N while he was a child.

Pokémon Black and White
"I am Anthea... Trainer. Before you go to confront my lord N, please take a moment to rest..."
"Ah, good. Both you and your Pokémon regained energy... Trainers battle to practice their skills and to grow in experience, but never to hurt their Pokémon. My lord N has realized this, deep down in his heart...but he has spent too much painful time here in this castle to admit it..."
Pokémon Black 2 and White 2
"Team Plasma is an organization created by a man named Ghetsis to help him take over the Unova region. The one he groomed to help him further his nefarious aims was N. N was a strange boy who was called the child of the Pokémon."
"I wonder if N understands now. Trainers battle with Pokémon not to hurt them, but so Trainers and Pokémon can understand one another better! It's the simplest way for them to do this. The more serious the battle, the more the true nature of Pokémon and people becomes apparent!"


Pokémon Black and White
"I am Concordia. I give peace and comfort to N. N has been separated from people since he was young. He was brought up with Pokémon... Pokémon that were betrayed, mistreated and hurt by bad people... Ghetsis deliberately brought only those poor Pokémon closer to N. N was touched by their plight, and started pursuing idealsB/the truthW, thinking only of Pokémon. N's heart is pure and innocent. But there is nothing more beautiful and terrifying than innocence."
Pokémon Black 2 and White 2
"N was an orphan. I heard that right after he was born, he upset people with behavior that suggested he could talk to Pokémon. When he was living in the woods with Darmanitan and Zorua, Ghetsis took him in. We are also orphans Ghetsis took in. Our task was to take care of N."
"I don't understand N's pure and innocent feelings. But I will be very happy if he figured out what he wants to do on his own during his travels with the legendary Pokémon."

In the anime

Anthea and Concordia are set to appear in the climax of Best Wishes! Season 2: Episode N. In the Japanese version of the anime, they are given the names Helena (ヘレナ) and Verbena (バーベナ). They are N's allies and have similar abilities for hearing the voices of Pokémon.

In the manga

Anthea and Concordia in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Anthea and Concordia appear in the Black & White chapter of Pokémon Adventures. They are first seen in a flashback during N's battle against Black, in which they are seen accompanying him while he walks to his coronation.

It is later revealed that Anthea and Concordia were introduced to the Seven Sages three years before, when Ghetsis shows them in N's room, while explains to the other sages his plan to make N the king of Team Plasma. It seems that their task in this plan was to keep N's innocence, bringing him up to be what he is now.
