Katrina (Japanese: カクリ Kakuri) is a character of the day from the Pokémon anime who appeared in A Bite to Remember.

Katrina is a Ranger who is in charge of protecting a Pokémon reserve located in a forest. Her three Mightyena and Poochyena assist her in that matter, scaring away any intruders who harm the Pokémon in the reserve. As soon as Max started scaring away the Pokémon there, Katrina accuses them as the intruders and has Mightyena and Poochyena take care of Ash and his friends. During the battle with the Dark-type Pokémon, Katrina shows up and explains to Ash and his friends that they are on a Pokémon reserve. Later, she takes them to the preserve center where she takes care of any Pokémon who are injured and nurses them back to health.

Max befriends the Poochyena during his time at the reserve as he wants it to evolve. Katrina allows him to do so and gives the group a place to stay. While Max is training Poochyena so it could evolve, Katrina goes to the forest and finds a piece of a net that was used for catching Pokémon. She takes the group to the area that she found the piece of the net. They end up finding Max in a confrontation with Team Rocket as they were responsible for taking the Pokémon from the reserve. Poochyena becomes one of the Pokémon caught in the net. With Max's encouragement of Poochyena using Bite, Poochyena successfully uses the move and frees itself along with the trapped Pokémon with Pikachu finishing off the villains. The battle with Team Rocket causes Poochyena to evolve into Mightyena, much to Max's excitement.

Katrina uses these Mightyena to protect the reserve, one of which was a Poochyena. They were first seen approaching Ash and his friends after Max's excitement scared any some Pokémon in the reserve. The Mightyena had a battle with Pikachu, Torchic and Forretress until Katrina and Poochyena show up.

At the reserve center, Katrina explains to the group that Poochyena and the Mightyena are the same age and that Poochyena didn't evolve at the same time as the others despite being the same age. Max trains the Poochyena in order to accomplish the goal. It has a battle with Torchic but that wasn't enough.

Later, Team Rocket kidnap Poochyena along with the Pokémon in the reserve. Mightyena and the group arrive to rescue the stolen Pokémon. Max encourages Poochyena to use Bite to free the Pokémon in the net. Poochyena successfully does so and is freed. The battle with the villains caused Poochyena to evolve into Mightyena.

The Mightyena that evolved from Poochyena knows Tackle and Bite.
None of the other three Mightyena's moves are known.
