Karen (Japanese: ? Karin) is a trainer of Dark-type Pokémon. She appears to be a young, attractive, blonde woman in her mid to early 20s.

In the Games

Karen is a member of the Elite Four in the Generation II games. She is the one of the five trainers one must battle after defeating all eight Gym Leaders of Johto.

Karen prefers Dark-type Pokémon because she likes the bad-boy image they portray.
