Aria (Japanese: エル Elle) is a recurring character of the Pokémon anime. She is a famous Pokémon Performer and the current Kalos Queen.


Aria first appeared in A PokéVision of Things to Come!, albeit only in a promotional video. In her debut, she was shown to be a well-known Pokémon Performer in Kalos, with her PokéVision promotional videos often making it in the top 10 PokéVision videos. Her first place video was watched by Ash and his friends and inspired Serena to make a PokéVision video herself.

She reappeared in a flashback in Day Three Blockbusters!. Shauna recalled how Aria had switched from simply making PokéVision videos to being a Performer, although she still makes PokéVision videos specially for her fans. Pokémon Performers such as Aria participate in Pokémon Showcases, girls-only festivals in which Trainers show off their Pokémon. Aria had won multiple Pokémon Showcases, and entered the Master Class. She was able to win the Master Class tournament, gaining herself the title of "Kalos Queen".

She reappeared in person for the first time in Dreaming a Performer's Dream!, where she gave an exhibition performance at a Pokémon Showcase in Lagoon Town, which was watched by Ash, his friends, and Shauna. The performance consisted of her Braixen first showing off its Fire-type moves. Afterwards Aria and Braixen proceeded to toss Braixen's wand back and forth. She had Braixen finish the performance with a Fire Blast. She also was seen in another flashback in A Race for Home!.

She will appear again in XY064.
