(Japanese: ラングレー Langley) is a "Dragon Buster" and a rival of Iris.
Langley first appeared in BW033 where she challenged Iris to a battle. She referred to herself as a Dragon Buster, seeking out and defeating Dragon Masters. She also wished to battle those from the Dragon Village because she suffered a terrible loss against a Trainer while there. Iris chose to use Axew for the battle while Langley chose her Beartic. She thought very little of Axew from the start as he was not a "big dragon". Her Beartic easily defeated Axew and was disappointed that the battle was so easy. She then demanded Iris to bring out her next Dragon Pokémon to which Cilan explained that she had no other. Once again, Langley taunted Iris saying that she isn't a real Dragon Master if all she has is one Dragon-type. This led Iris to take a risk and call out on her Excadrill to finish the job. But as usual, Excadrill refused to battle. Langley made the first move which caused Excadrill to show his and begin to battle, which is what Iris hoped for. Though because Excadrill did not trust Iris, Langley defeated her once again.
The next day Langley helped herself to the group's breakfast while they were off watching Excadrill train. She was then challenged by Iris to a rematch. With Excadrill now trusting his Trainer once more and with the use of a newly learned Focus Blast, the battle resulted in a draw. Langley didn't consider the draw a real loss as Excadrill was not a Dragon-type. She took her leave after telling Cilan to make her a better meal the next time they were to meet.
She reappeared in BW039, where she entered and advanced to the second round of the Don Battle by defeating Sanshirō's Joltik. In the next episode, she is selected to go up against Ash. She was also revealed to have a Pawniard, and she used it to begin the battle against Ash's Snivy. Although the battle was hard fought, Snivy was able to knock out Pawniard eliminating Langley from the Don Battle. Langley, however, blamed her loss on the battlefield's terrain, which caused Pawniard's arms to become stuck.
This listing is of Langley's known Pokémon in the anime:
| Langley's Pawniard
|| Pawniard ♀
| Pawniard was used by Langley during her quarter-final battle against Ash during the Don Battle tournament. Pawniard proved to be an extremely powerful Pokémon against her opponent, Ash's Snivy. Not only was she able to move so quick that she cut up Snivy's Leaf Storm but was also immune to Snivy's Attract due to the fact both were female. Soon Snivy started to gain the upper hand, but Pawniard turned things around quickly and put Snivy on the defensive before attempting to finish her in one-hit with Guillotine. However Snivy was able to fight back, and managed to get both of Pawniard's needle-like arms caught in the ground. Now with no defense, Snivy was able to make a direct hit with Leaf Storm, knocking Pawniard out leading to Langley's elimination from the tournament.
Pawniard's known moves are Metal Claw, Iron Head and Guillotine.
