Abigail

Abigail (Japanese: アマノ Amano) is an elderly woman who appeared in Cooking Up a Sweet Story.

Her Pikachu, Sugar, ran away to try to find a way to toast Aspear Berries for a bake-off.

Theresa, Abigail's niece (granddaughter in the Japanese version), found Ash's Pikachu for a substitute for Sugar, unbeknownst to Abigail. Abigail used Pikachu to fry the Aspear Berries. Abigail eventually challenged Ash to a battle using his Pikachu. Just before Aipom was about to hurt Pikachu for the first time, she threw in the towel and quit.

Finally, Ash was going to tell Abigail that who she thought was Sugar was really his Pikachu. However, she realized it a while ago. She then told the group that Sugar ran away because she pushed it to toast the Berries perfectly.

Just after that, Team Rocket came and kidnapped Pikachu. Abigail inspired everyone to chase after Team Rocket's latest mecha. Sugar came back as a Raichu and rescued Pikachu. In the end, Sugar helped Abigail make an amazing cake, using Thunderbolt and Focus Punch.

Sugar
Abigail's only Pokémon is a Raichu that she has owned since it was a Pikachu which she had named Sugar (Japanese: シュガー Sugar). Sugar had the peculiar habit of scratching its head with its tail. Abigail and Sugar were famous cake-makers, as Abigail would use Sugar to collect Aspear Berries in order to make her famous delicious cakes. However Abigail was so focused on toasting the Berries with Thunderbolt just right that Sugar ran off, and Abigail was upset believing she had driven her loyal Pikachu away.

Some time later, Sugar returned to help out against Team Rocket. It turned out Abigail hadn't driven Sugar away but it had run off in order to become stronger, so it could toast the berries better. Due to its hard work, Sugar had evolved from a Pikachu into a Raichu and had learned Focus Punch. After using its attacks to drive Team Rocket away, Sugar resumed its place at Abigail's side and continued to bake delicious cakes.

Sugar's known moves are Thunderbolt and Focus Punch.

After Sugar ran off, Abigail felt very depressed. Abigail's niece, Theresa, wanted to cheer Abigail up and encountered Ash and his Pikachu. Ash agreed to allow Pikachu to imitate Sugar for a few days to allow Abigail to focus on an upcoming cookoff.

At first it seemed Abigail had fallen for the ploy and used Pikachu to collect berries and battle Team Rocket, but then she challenged Ash to a battle. Although at first he had doubts, Ash was able to have Aipom put up a good fight against Pikachu, but as she started to gain the upper-hand Abigail forfeited the match. Later when Ash went to tell Abigail the truth, Abigail admitted she had known Pikachu wasn't Sugar for a while, being able to tell the difference in the way Pikachu collected the Aspear Berries.

Under Abigail's command, the only move Pikachu used was Thunderbolt.
