Liza (Japanese: ジーク Sieg) is the caretaker of the Charicific Valley, which was made specifically as a natural paradise for wild Charizard.


Liza in her debut

Liza made her debut appearance in Charizard's Burning Ambitions. She knew of a Trainer's win at the Violet Gym with a Charizard, and immediately deduced that that Trainer was Ash Ketchum, as she can identify Charizard Trainers by the lingering scent of their Charizard partner. She invited Ash and his friends to come with her into the valley, encouraging Ash to ride his Charizard as transport, somewhat questioning why—as a Charizard Trainer—he's never flown upon his. She also questions the strength of Ash's Charizard, indicating only 'weak' Charizard display their power through Charizard's typical stream of fire, and that it needs some serious training. Charizard wanted to train at the valley seeing the other powerful Charizard there, but Liza initially refused after it lost to her Charizard, Charla. But after seeing its determination to train there, she agreed.

Liza made a brief cameo appearance in Spell of the Unown with Charla and all the other Charizard in the Charicific Valley.

Liza later appeared in Great Bowls of Fire! bringing Ash's Charizard with her. It was revealed that she was good friends with Clair since they were young children. Liza often takes the Charizard from the Charicific Valley to Blackthorn City in order to train them.

Ash would also call Liza sometimes whenever he needed Charizard sent over.

Liza appeared in a flashback in BW116, again with Charla and all the other Charizard in the Charicific Valley.

Liza's other Charizard

Charizard (multiple)
Liza trains multiple Charizard that live at Charicific Valley. They are wild, and never see humans because of the risk of Pokémon Poachers. The Charizard battle and train to become stronger. She first shows them to Ash and his friends: some battling, some sleeping, some doing other activities. One large Charizard walks up to Ash's Charizard, Liza points that if he can defeat this Charizard he can live in the valley. Ash's Charizard is initially unsuccessful, but joins the group of Charizard at the end of the episode.

It was revealed in Great Bowls of Fire! that she often takes Charizard to Blackthorn City in order to train them.

Different Charizard have different moves; the large Charizard's only known move is Flamethrower.
