For the Gym Leader whose name is "Melissa" in Japanese, see Fantina.

Melissa during her match with Gary

Melissa (Japanese: ヨシキ Yoshiki, a male in the Japanese version) is a character of the day from the Pokémon anime.

She appeared in The Fourth Round Rumble, where she battled Gary Oak in the fourth round of the Indigo Plateau Conference. She was shown to be a very powerful Trainer, defeating Gary's Nidoking and sending the Pallet Town native home.


Melissa's Golem
Melissa used her Golem as her final Pokémon in her battle against Gary. Gary told his Nidoking to use Horn Attack, but the Megaton Pokémon stopped the attack by grabbing Nidoking's horn. Golem then used Seismic Toss on Nidoking, defeating it and winning the match for Melissa.

Golem's only known move is Seismic Toss.

Debut The Fourth Round Rumble

She also has at least two other Pokémon which she used in her battle against Gary.
