Minana (Japanese: ミズキ Mizuki) is one of the characters of the day in Beauties Battling for Pride and Prestige!. She is a member of the "Flower Garden Opera Troupe", the most popular theater group in the Unova region, along with Moira and Sher.

She was taking a walk with Moira and Sher, and their Pokémon, when Iris's Emolga bumped into Moira's Cinccino by accident. Soon, Ash, Iris and Cilan showed up. She introduced herself with the other girls and laughed when Moira called Iris's Emolga and Ash's Snivy ugly. This made Iris furious, and she tried to chase after Minana and the other two. However, before Iris could catch them, they escaped in their RV.

Ash, Iris, and Cilan got into their club, having dressed up in real ladies attire, and Minana was the first person they saw while inside. Minana did not recognise them from earlier and was suspicious about the unknown guests, so they told Minana a lie, that they wanted to see the Flower Garden Opera Troupe practice. Minana was still reluctant to let them proceed at first, but she asked Moira, who allowed them to see them practice.

Further inside the building, Moira, Minana and Sher offered a competition against Iris, Ash and Cilan. They each faced off one on one by each choosing one Pokémon. One part of the competition involved having two chosen Pokémon stand on a balance beam with one trying to push the other into muddy water. Minana faced off against Iris and her Emolga, while she chose her Lilligant. Emolga was in danger of being defeated, but prevented herself from doing so by flying up. When Lilligant leaned over to push Emolga, she dodged it by again, causing Lilligant to lose its balance and fall into the muddy water, giving Iris the win. Minana was immediately shocked over this loss.

The next part of the competition had two Pokémon battle against each other in a regular battle. In the first battle, Minana battled Cilan's Pansage. Pansage attempted to dodge Lilligant's attacks by digging, but was ultimately hit with an Energy Ball. This knocked not only Pansage into the muddy water, but Cilan as well.

Like the other two girls, Minana has a very arrogant personality. An example of this is whenever she defeats someone, she laughs hysterically and rubs it in the Trainer's face. Iris mimicked this arrogance when her Emolga defeated her Lilligant, and made Ash and Cilan do so too. Like Sher, she seems to agree with everything Moira says.


Minana's Lilligant
Lilligant is the only Pokémon that Minana is known to have. While she was defeated by Iris's Emolga, she later defeated Cilan's Pansage. Lilligant was shown to be good in evading; she was able to easily dodge all of Pansage's Bullet Seeds.

Lilligant's known moves are Energy Ball and Leech Seed.
