Natasha (Japanese: ノノミ Nonomi) is a character of the day who appeared in New Places... Familiar Faces!. She is a new Trainer just starting out on her Pokémon journey and was on her way to Nuvema Town to get her starter Pokémon from Professor Juniper. She is very anxious and fears that everything will turn out worse than the reality.
Ash and his friends met her as she was having trouble crossing over a bridge. They crossed ahead of her, reassuring her that the bridge was safe. Later, when she arrived at the lab, she refused to go inside, fearing it was full of hostile Galvantula and instead called out to anyone inside. She met with Ash and his friends again who invited her inside, and again she panicked, fearing Professor Juniper would be cruel to her. Instead, the Professor greeted her with a smile, and released Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott so she could choose one as her starter. Natasha then worried that if she chose Snivy, it would evolve in her sleep and constrict her in affection as a Serperior. She ruled out Oshawott as well, as she worried that it might accidentally drench her in her sleep. So, Natasha decided to choose Tepig as her starter Pokémon.
Ash, Cilan, and Iris decided to help Natasha bond with Tepig through a Tag Battle. She initially told Tepig to use Thunderbolt, but Ash taught her that Tepig can't use Thunderbolt since it's a Fire-type and to look up its moves in her Pokédex. The battle was interrupted when Team Rocket appeared. In a panic, Natasha quickly returned Tepig to its Poké Ball as the other Pokémon were stunned by Amoonguss's Stun Spore. Team Rocket nearly managed to steal Pikachu, but Natasha was able to distract Team Rocket with Tepig, who ended up being captured instead. Ash then sent Unfezant and Pikachu to rescue Tepig, and it was eventually returned to Natasha. Natasha then set off on her own journey.
