Suzie (Japanese: ユキ Yuki) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. She is a famous Pokémon Breeder and beautician who is adept at releasing a Pokémon's inner beauty and health. She first appeared in Pokémon Fashion Flash.

History

Suzie made her debut appearance in Pokémon Fashion Flash. Brock took Ash and Misty to Scissor Street so they could visit Suzie's salon, where he asked for Suzie to make him her student as he could learn a lot from her knowing she is trophy winning Pokémon Breeder who is often featured among the most popular Breeders in magazines, and also has a popular website. However, Suzie turned Brock down, saying that she was just too busy to take on students.

Suzie invited everyone to lunch, where she noted Pikachu's healthy coat. Brock happily announced that he personally prepared the Mouse Pokémon's food. Vulpix ate some of Pikachu's food, and Brock was so flattered and honored by this that he slammed his head into the table while bowing before the Fire-type Pokémon. Misty brought up the topic of some flashy Pokémon they had seen on Scissor Street, and Suzie explained that they were customers of Salon Rocket, a flashy beauty parlor that had been attracting all of Suzie's usual customers. Apparently, making Pokémon look flashy was a new fad that had been taking the area by storm. Ash didn't like the idea of dressing up Pokémon. An angered Misty said the idea was great and decided to take her Psyduck over to the rival parlor just to spite Ash.

Suzie said that she usually put emphasis on substance over style, but she had began to question her methods when Salon Rocket had began to rise in popularity. Ash and Brock tried to cheer her up, insisting that she was really good. Ash and Brock decided to organize a lecture for Suzie, where she demonstrated massage on Pikachu. Suzie explained that close personal relationships with Pokémon were the most important thing in raising them. The lecture drew a lot of customers away from Salon Rocket, leaving only Misty and Psyduck left.

It turned out Salon Rocket was actually a front for Team Rocket, who decided to hold Misty hostage to try to get Pikachu. Psyduck, however, escaped and ran back to Suzie's salon to get help. Angered, Suzie made a long speech about inner beauty being more important than outer beauty. Ash and Brock then had Pikachu and Geodude battle Team Rocket, and Suzie finished things by having Vulpix blast the villains off with a Fire Spin. Suzie was impressed with the way Brock handled his Pokémon in battle and thanked him for helping her restore her faith in her methods. She said she thought that Brock had taught her a lot, and that she wasn't ready to be anyone's teacher. She decided to shut down her salon and go on a journey of her own. Since Brock was the first person other than herself that Vulpix liked, Suzie decided that Brock should take care of it, as he might be able to raise it better than she would.

Suzie made a brief appearance in Brock's fantasy in Showdown at the Po-ké Corral.

Suzie reappeared in Beauty and the Breeder, where she entered the Pokémon Beauty Contest along with Brock. She now had a partner, Zane, who owned a Ninetales. Brock returned Vulpix to Suzie and stopped chasing after her when he realized that Zane and Suzie were more friendly with each other.

Vulpix
Main article: Brock's Vulpix

Vulpix was given to Brock by Suzie in the episode Pokémon Fashion Flash. Suzie was Brock's idol, and Vulpix took a liking to him, which was surprising, as the little Pokémon had a very snobbish and primadonna-ish nature. It even liked Brock's homemade Pokémon food. Impressed with the way Brock cared for his Geodude and Ash's Pikachu, Suzie decided that Brock might be able to take better care of Vulpix than she could.

Brock later met up with Suzie again in Johto and returned Vulpix to her in Beauty and the Breeder, saying at the time that he had always felt that Vulpix wasn't really his and he was just looking after it for a time.
