Giselle and Cubone

Giselle (Japanese: 優藤 聖代 Seiyo Yūtō) is a school girl who attends a school located somewhere between Cerulean City and Vermilion City. She is a character of the day in one episode of the Pokémon anime. Her Japanese voice actress is Yumi Tōma and her English voice actress is Annie Pondel. Her Latin-American voice actress is Gaby Ugarte.

In the anime

In The School of Hard Knocks Ash, Misty, and Brock had met a schoolboy named Joe who attended a Pokémon Trainer's School called Pokémon Tech. Apparently, upperclassmen at the school were bullying younger or less experienced students under the guise of "tutoring". The one responsible for this program was Giselle, a pretty and popular know-it-all.

Giselle confronted and belittled Joe, Ash, and Misty. Misty, angry at Giselle and her stuck-up attitude, challenged her to a Pokémon battle. Giselle defeated Misty with a Graveler, versus Starmie, despite the disadvantage of a Template:Type2 and a Template:Type2 Pokémon. After taunting the young Gym Leader, Giselle then started to lecture her fellow students.

Ash got angry himself and argued that Pokémon training was more than types and levels - you need to be friends with them, too. Giselle laughed haughtily and called Ash a beginner. She teased him about having been on a journey for two months and only having two badges and three Pokémon. She then proceeded to note that Pikachu are an awful choice for first Pokémon, and that they're more fitting as pets for little girls, and begun to say trivia about Pikachu and its evolved form, Raichu. Ash and Pikachu were extremely insulted and angered, and challenged Giselle to a battle.

Giselle used a Cubone. Without being able to use Template:Type2 moves, Ash told Pikachu to fight back in any way it could. Pikachu then began to attack Cubone with a series of random physical attacks - biting, scratching, etc. Eventually Pikachu covered Cubone's eyes with its own skull helmet and Cubone ended up knocking itself out with its own Bonemerang attack. Giselle was shocked by the defeat and admitted that people can't learn through books alone.

Team Rocket then tried to raid the school, but Giselle led the charge against them and got all the students to assist in chasing the criminals away. Joe and Giselle reconciled, and Joe left the school to collect badges for the Pokémon League.

Trivia

  • Giselle, to date, is the only female that Ash has found attractive enough to abandon his usual indifference towards romance. However, some might argue that some other characters have made him feel this way.
  • Giselle was also the only girl younger than Brock that he found attractive during all the series.
  • A Trainer based on Giselle appears in Pokémon Yellow; a female Junior Trainer with a Cubone is on Route 6, which, like Pokémon Tech in the anime, is between Cerulean City and Vermilion City. She is seen talking to a male Junior Trainer with a Weepinbell. When the player talks to her, she would say I'm training for my love. Don't bother me!.
  • Giselle is one of the few characters in the anime whose Japanese name isn't spelled using katakana. Instead, it is spelled in kanji.
