The Olivine City Gym is probably the most simply designed Pokémon Gym in Johto.

Jasmine (Japanese: ミカン Mikan) is the Gym Leader of Olivine City's Gym, known officially as the Olivine Gym. Her specialty is Template:Type2 Pokémon, and she gives the Mineral Badge to Trainers who defeat her in battle. She also appears in Sinnoh to give trainers HM07 (Waterfall) and to compete in Sinnoh's Super Contests.

In the games

Jasmine appears in Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver as the Gym Leader of the Olivine Gym. Her title in these games is "The Steel-Clad Defense Girl." She also appears in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. This Easter Egg appearance helped to trigger speculation regarding the eventual Gold and Silver remakes.

Jasmine is a very shy girl, and has trouble speaking. She is a compassionate girl, and when the Ampharos in Glitter Lighthouse (nicknamed Amphy) falls ill, Jasmine is so worried she cannot even smile. Amphy and Jasmine appear to be close, because once medicine is brought for Amphy, it will only take it from her.

Typically Jasmine is the sixth Gym Leader to be challenged in the Johto region, although she is the fifth to be encountered. When she is first met she will refuse to battle the player, as she is busy taking care of a sick Ampharos. She requests that a special medicine be brought from the Cianwood City pharmacy. When it is retrieved, she will heal the Ampharos and return to the Gym. In battle, she uses the recently-discovered Template:Type2 Pokémon, but it's said that she recently used to train a different type. A Gentleman in the Lighthouse says she used to train Template:Type2 Pokémon, like Onix. Once defeated she will yield the Mineral Badge and TM23 (Iron Tail).

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Jasmine is available to be fought again in Saffron City's Fighting Dojo. She will use a stronger team here—but will not appear until her PokéGear phone number has been obtained from the Olivine City diner. She goes there every afternoon, but will travel to Kanto for battles on Wednesday afternoons. After defeating her in a rematch, Jasmine will call the player on his or her PokéGear to suggest a trade. She offers a Steelix nicknamed ネール Neil (OT: 26491) that holds a Soothe Bell. She will accept any Pokémon in exchange. The Steelix, notably, shares its Japanese name with the one she uses in Super Contests in Sinnoh.

Jasmine in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, Jasmine is staying in Sunyshore City for a while, which she says reminds her of home with its lighthouse and its location on the sea. She also occasionally enters Super Contests with her Steelix, which is nicknamed Rusty (Japanese: ネール Neil). She gives the player HM07 (Waterfall) after defeating the eighth Gym Leader, Volkner.

"Thank you for your help at the Lighthouse... But this is different. Please allow me to introduce myself. I'm Jasmine, a Gym Leader. I use the Steel-type. ...Do you know about the Steel-type? It's a type that was only recently discovered. ...Um... May I begin?"

"...You are a better trainer than me, in both skill and kindness. In accordance with League rules, I confer upon you this Badge."

"Um... I don't know how to say this, but good luck..."

Pokémon Diamond/Pearl

"... This city makes me feel at home somehow. It's next to the sea, and there's a lighthouse. Oh, that's this town's Gym Badge. You must be very good. ...Er...um... P-please, take this, too."

"...Um... I... I don't know how I should say this, but good luck."

Jasmine in the anime

Jasmine appears in Fight for the Light and Nerves of Steelix.

In the anime, Jasmine runs the Glitter Lighthouse in Olivine City. She used her Ampharos to light the way over the shore, but when it became ill, she asked Ash to fetch it some medicine from Cianwood City. Ash and his friends retrieved the medicine and sent it back with one of Jasmine's young apprentices, Janina.

Several weeks later, Ash and his friends returned from the Whirl Islands and Ash challenged Jasmine to a Gym battle. Ash used Cyndaquil and was able to defeat Jasmine's Steelix.

Compared to other media, where she is typically depicted as meek and soft-spoken, the anime version of Jasmine is markedly more confident, and even aggressive during Gym battles. She makes a powerful introduction, leaping from a cliff and gracefully landing on her Steelix. She is not afraid to take on Team Rocket, and is quite vocal in letting Ash know she won't go easy on him during battle.

In the Pokémon Special manga

Jasmine was caught in an earthquake caused by Team Rocket while traveling through Ecruteak City. She had climbed the Tin Tower to get away from the shaking and got caught in some rubble. Using Ampharos to send off a distress flare, she caught the attention of both Gold and Silver. The two boys actually fought over who would get to rescue her, and she only barely managed to escape, leaving the young rivals trapped in the tower.

Jasmine later managed to recover. At the Pokémon League Tournament, she fought against Brock. She covered her Steelix in rubble to make it look like an Onix, thinking that the newly-discovered Steel Pokémon would be too horrifying for people to see.

Jasmine once specialized in Template:Type2 Pokémon before Crystal and Professor Oak discovered Steel-type Pokémon.

Jasmine's two Togetic are the parents of Gold's Togepi.

Trivia

Jasmine watching a contest? She still shows up even if a non-glitch Pokémon is used in the contest.
  • Her Japanese Leader title is 鉄壁ガードの女の子.
  • She is the only female Gym Leader of Johto that admits defeat.
    • She is also the only female Johto Gym Leader that is not voiced by Megan Hollingshead in English.
  • Many fans pointed to her appearance in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum as a hint for remakes of Gold and Silver. Whether or not this was intended, the remakes were eventually made.
  • Jasmine appears to be watching the Contests in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald and in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Whitney and Pryce appear in the audience as well.
  • The Olivine City Gym is the only Gym in Johto that does not have any Trainers other than its leader.
  • Jasmine is the first Gym Leader to appear in all five versions of a generation, as well as the first Gym Leader to appear outside of her home region in the games (both Brock and Misty take this honor in the anime).
  • In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Jasmine uses an Empoleon in her team in a rematch against the player. This makes her the third gym leader to use a starter Pokémon, or one of its evolutions, and one of two to use a different region's starter, the other being Clair's Charizard.
