Bianca (Japanese: ベル Bel) is a rival character in Pokémon Black and White.

In the games

Role

Like the player, Bianca lives in the starting town of Nuvema Town, and is also a childhood friend of the player (and soon-to-be-rival). She is described as being 'flighty' by Professor Juniper and Cheren; though she also has a strong side, as shown when she embarks on a Pokémon journey despite her father's strong opposition. This is emphasized in Nimbasa City, where her father disallows her to become a Pokémon Trainer. With the help of Nimbasa City Gym Leader Elesa, Bianca convinces her father to let her follow her dream.

In keeping with the theme of truth and ideals often seen in Black and White, Bianca represents those who pursue truth—this is highlighted when N comments, "Poor Bianca has faced the sad truth that not everyone can become stronger". She often admits that she is not a strong Trainer compared to the player and Cheren; and thinks about what she can do in life (whereas Cheren is seen to ponder about what he should do). Later in the game, she decides to research and learn more about Pokémon with Juniper.

Like the player and Cheren, Bianca receives a starter Pokémon as a gift from Professor Juniper at the start of the game; she chooses the Pokémon with a type disadvantage to the player's starter Pokémon. The player encounters Bianca on several occasions, where she often challenges the player to a battle. After the player has defeated Alder, she will be around to battle them on weekends in Nuvema Town.

In B2W2 series Bianca appears as Professor Juniper's assistant, handing out the Starter Pokémon to the player. She will also be reunited with Cheren in Hiougi City, who haven't seen each other for two years.

Bianca in the anime

Bianca appears as a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. She is a friendly rival of Ash and occasional traveling companion. She is clumsy and hasty, but genuinely goodhearted and cares deeply for her Pokémon and the friends she makes on her journey. Her dad did not allow her to travel for some time, causing her to be slightly inexperienced for her age, but she doesn't take the opportunity for granted. She occasionally runs errands for Professor Juniper, one of which was bringing Ash his Badge case.
