Rita (Japanese: レイコ Reiko) is a character of the day who appeared in the episode The Lotad Lowdown. She is the eldest sister of Nicole and Natalie. She is usually in charge of fixing the waterworks of the garden of the Flower shop.

As Rita entered the shop, she was quite surprised by Ash and his friends visiting them. Rita told her sisters that there was a problem with one of the watering pipes of the garden. After the group finished touring around the garden, Rita told Nicole that she needed to replace the broken watering pipe. While the pipe was being replaced, the Lotad came in to help in watering the garden.

Natalie and her sisters have multiple Lotad that are mostly used to help out in their flower shop. One of them was given to Brock. They first appeared when Ash and his friends were freaked out by them but found out they were harmless, they then showed them a dazzling performance using their Water Gun. Later they were captured by Team Rocket in their boat mecha, but with the help of Pikachu and a powerful Lotad, they are able to be set free and Team Rocket are sent blasting off.

Lotad's only known move is Water Gun. However, Brock's knows both Water Gun and Razor Leaf.
