Undubbed character This article is about a character featured in the Pokémon anime who has not yet debuted in the English language dub.
As such, their information may contain romanized Japanese names, rather than dub names.

(Japanese: コハル Koharu) is the character of the day in BW055. She met up with Ash and company on her way to Nimbasa City where she planned to obtain her third badge. Her Gothita took a liking to Ash's Scraggy, and wanted her to trade one of her own Pokémon to Ash for him. Of course, Ash refused the trade, but Koharu then suggested they have a battle, and if she won, she would get to trade with him. Again, Ash was not interested in trading Scraggy. Finally, she resorted to taunting him until he eventually agreed. He was able to knock out her Mandibuzz with his Tepig before they had to take shelter from a freak rainstorm.

Koharu spent the night with the group in a cabin when they were all awakened by Pikachu, who informed them that Scraggy, Axew, Snivy, and Gothita were missing. She was in a state of panic afterwards, worrying that something bad would happen to her Gothita. With the help of her Deerling, she was able to help calm a wild Garbodor to stop it from attacking her Gothita and the other Pokémon.

The next day, she battled against him again. This time, she used her Gothita while he used his Snivy. The battle ended in a loss for Koharu, and she was forced to run after her Gothita, who left the scene in a fit over the loss.


Koharu's Gothita
Koharu's Gothita developed feelings for Ash's Scraggy. It is shown to be a somewhat selfish Pokémon that seems to be able to manipulate its Trainer into doing what it wants. It even seemed to be telling Koharu what attacks Mandibuzz should use during her battle with Tepig. In the middle of the night, it got Scraggy to run away with it. Axew followed them into the forest, where the two began fighting over Scraggy by tugging on his arms. The two started battling shortly after that, and Axew's Dragon Rage sent it flying and landing on top of a sleeping Garbodor. Gothita did not like how it smelled, and attacked it with Psyshock, which infuriated it.

Gothita later became angry with Ash's Snivy after she slapped it on the rear to get it to stop attacking Garbodor. The next day, it wanted to face her in battle. It was quickly defeated, and threw a temper tantrum before leaving the scene.

According to Koharu, Gothita is a big fan of Elesa.

Gothita's known moves are Psychic, Psyshock, DoubleSlap and Hidden Power.
