Hazel with Pikachu
|Relatives||Unnamed parents, unnamed cousin|
Hazel (Japanese: マロン Marron) is the main character of the manga series Magical Pokémon Journey. She is on a quest to capture Pokémon for Grandpa so that he will make her a love potion to give to Almond, who she has a crush on.
She is an energetic, caring girl who makes friends with Pokémon easily. Though she has not actually captured any Pokémon, she has befriended three Pokémon - Pikachu, Clefairy, and a Jigglypuff. She likes to help others, such as in Even an Arbok Falls in Love!, where she leads the others in helping Arbok get together with Wigglytuff.
Her family is never shown on-page, however, she does mention her parents and an unnamed cousin in Excitement at the Hot Springs?!.
Hazel owns a magical suit made by Grandpa which protects her from all sorts of harm, from electric shock to drowning, but often forgets to wear it.
One of her hobbies is drawing, but she is not very skilled at it and the other characters often make fun of her for her unintelligible pictures.
Hazel has known Almond since childhood; at first, she was a rambunctious tomboy who often teased and bullied him. She is determined to get together with him, and competes with Coconut for his affection. While Almond at first seems indifferent to her feelings, Hazel continues to pursue him, often following him around or stalking him. She is constantly trying to win him over, giving him many gifts such as chocolates in Eevee... Pokémon Genius! and a Valentine's Day heart in Valentine Heartbeats.
At the end of the manga, Almond falls for her without the help of a love potion and they become a couple. Hazel does not appear in Pokémon Chamo-Chamo ☆ Pretty ♪, the sequel to Magical Pokémon Journey set in the same world, though some of the Pokémon she has befriended do appear as returning characters.
Hazel hasn't actually caught any Pokémon, however, she has befriended several Pokémon.
