Bianca (Japanese: ベル Bel) is a Pokémon Trainer from the Unova region.

She is a rival character in Pokémon Black and White and an Assistant Pokémon Professor to Professor Juniper in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.

In the games


Pokémon Black and White

Like the player, Bianca lives in the starting town of Nuvema Town, and is also a childhood friend of the player (and soon-to-be rival). She is described as being 'flighty' by Professor Juniper and Cheren; though she also has a strong side, as shown when she embarks on a Pokémon journey despite her father's strong opposition. This is emphasized in Nimbasa City, where her father disallows her to become a Pokémon Trainer. With the help of Nimbasa City Gym Leader Elesa, Bianca convinces her father to let her follow her dream.

In keeping with the theme of truth and ideals often seen in Black and White, Bianca represents those who pursue truth—this is highlighted when N comments that Bianca had to face the truth that not everyone can become stronger. She often admits that she is not a strong Trainer compared to the player and Cheren; and thinks about what she can do in life (whereas Cheren is seen to ponder about what he should do). Later in the game, she decides to research and learn more about Pokémon with Juniper.

Like the player and Cheren, Bianca receives a starter Pokémon as a gift from Professor Juniper at the start of the game; she chooses the Pokémon with a type disadvantage to the player's starter Pokémon. The player encounters Bianca on several occasions, where she often challenges the player to a battle.

After the player has defeated Alder, she will be around to battle them on weekends in Nuvema Town.

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

In Black 2 and White 2, Bianca appears as Professor Juniper's assistant, giving the player his or her starter Pokémon. She, after not seeing him for two years, will also be reunited with Cheren in Aspertia City.

She appears several times throughout the game, generally running errands for Professor Juniper, such as looking for Tynamo in Chargestone Cave. She will accompany the player as a tag partner on the player's first visit to Reversal Mountain while she investigates the Pokémon Heatran.

She can be called on the Xtransceiver to figure out the player's current Friendship level with Pokémon in his or her party. After the player has defeated the Champion, she can also figure out whether a Pokémon in the player's party has reached its effective cap in effort values for any stat (252), or overall (510).

Nuvema Town

  • Before choosing starter
"Am I a little late again? So-oooo-orry!"
"I know. Sorry, <player>. Sorry, Cheren."
"So, where are the Pokémon? They were delivered to <player>'s house, so <player> gets first pick."
  • After choosing starter
"OK, I'll take this Pokémon! Cheren, that one's yours!"
"Everyone has chosen a Pokémon! ...So that's that! Hey, I know! Let's have a Pokémon battle!"
  • Before battle
"Don't be a worrywart! These little ones are weak, like you said. We have to let them battle so they'll get stronger. It's settled, <player>! Get ready for a Pokémon battle!"

"Eek! Ouch! I won't let you get away with that!"
  • When defeated
"The Pokémon on both sides did their best!"
  • If the player is defeated

  • After being defeated
"Wow... <player>, you're gonna be an awesome Trainer someday, I can tell! No doubt!"
"Wh-whoa! What happened?!"
"Wow! Pokémon are amaaaaazing!! So little, but so strong! I'm so glad that I get to have a Pokémon! ...Oh. Um, sorry about your room, <player>."
"Hey, Cheren! How about you battle, too? With all you know, I'm sure you can battle without turning the room into a disaster area like I did!"
"Oh! I'd better come, too!"
"Well, um... We can clean up..."
"Oh! Wait! I've gotta go home first."
"Thanks for having us over!"
  • Bianca's house
"But, I'm... I'm a good Trainer who got a Pokémon and everything! I can totally go on an adventure!"
"Oh... It's OK. ...It's fine! I'll be waiting for you in front of the lab, OK?"
  • Juniper Pokémon Lab
"OK! I mean... Yes, professor!"
"S-since the professor asked us, it's OK to go on an adventure, right? I can explore and maybe find out what I want to do in life. I think I'd like that."
"For some reason, my heart is pounding, <player>. What are you and <starter> going to do?"
"Heeey! <Player>, wait up!"
"Th-thank you so much!"
"Let's go, let's go! <Player>, hurry and come too, OK?"
"<Player>... It's this way!"
"Hey, <player>! Let's all take our first step on Route 1 together!"
"One, two!"

Route 1

"Oh! I wonder what will happen! Isn't this so exciting?!"
"I think I'll go, too. I'm looking forward to the next town so I can go shopping for Poké Balls!"
"Wait a minute! Hey, listen! <Player>, Cheren, I thought of something fun!"
"Would you just listen a sec? Seriously! Why don't we see who can catch the most Pokémon? The person carrying the most Pokémon, including the one received from Professor Juniper, is the winner!"
"Me and <Bianca's starter> will do the best for sure!"
"How about it, <player>? Do you want to compare which one of us has the most Pokémon with them?"
Yes: "Wow, [number]?! That's awesome! Are you excited to have that many Pokémon with you?"
No: "Hmm... Guess I'll be waiting here, then."
  • On Xtransceiver
"Oh! Professor!"
"OK! The Pokémon Center, right!"

Accumula Town

Route 2

"Ohhhhh! Hi, <player>!"
  • Before battle
"Hey, listen! Let's have a Pokémon battle! Pleeeease? The Pokémon I caught have become a little stronger! Ready or not, here I come!"

  • When defeated
"Aww... I couldn't win..."

"Hi, <player>! Are you looking for the mysterious Pokémon, too?"
"I'm just really, really wondering how showing dreams works..."
"Hey! Did you hear a sound coming from the other side of that wall? Come on! Let's go see!"
"Oh! Wait!"
"Huh? Who are you?! What are you doing?"
"You're kicking a Pokémon to make it give off Dream Mist? That's mean! Why? You're Trainers too, right?"
"Whaaat! Don't hurt <player>!"
"Knock it off!"
"...What was that just now? That person called Ghetsis appeared all over the place, and it wasn't real, right?! ...Could it have been a dream?"
"And that Pokémon..."
"Oh, Fennel. Well, you see, Munna was here... But Team Plasma and Munna... And Musharna came... And it showed us something like a dream? And then, Team Plasma..."
"Phew. How random was that? <Player>, why don't you go to Fennel's house? Me? Well, I'm going to go look for the Pokémon we saw just now."

Castelia Gate

  • When encountered
"You remember the promise you made on the Xtransceiver, right?"
"But, before that..."
"I'm the new and improved version of me! It's gonna go great this time!"
  • After first move
"My Pokémon and me! We trained and got tough!"

  • After defeat:
"Aww. I lost."

Route 8

  • After first move
"Oh! So, you chose that move!"
  • Last Pokémon low on health
"Every time I watch my Pokémon battle, it ends like this..."
  • After defeat:
"The Pokémon on both sides tried sooo hard, didn't they?"

Nuvema Town (post-game)

  • After first move
"I see... You choose that move?!"
  • Sending out last Pokémon
"S-s-still... That's fine. We're just fine!"

" a time like this, I am supposed to do...what?"
  • Upon defeat

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

Aspertia City

  • Upon meeting the player:
"It's sooo pretty! Hey there! Don't you agree? Oh! My name is Bianca! I'm the assisstant of the Pokémon Professor--Professor Juniper. By the way, I'm looking for someone. Do you know a person named <player>?" (Regardless of the answer:) "Oh, wait! You're <player>! Wooow! You're ex-act-ly like what I heard! Nice to meet you! I have a really important request to ask you! Will you help us complete the Pokédex?"
No: "N-no way... I-I must have misheard you. Right? This is a very important request. Will you please help us complete the Pokédex?"
Yes: "Oh, wow, thanks! Your support will help Professor Juniper's research move forward! Anyway, filling up the Pokédex is totally fun!"
"OK, then! Ta-daaa! In here is the Pokémon that will be your partner!"
  • After the player has chosen their starter:
"Oh, wow! You and Snivy/Tepig/Oshawott are a perfect match! By the way, would you like to give a nickname to the Pokémon you chose?"
No: "Oh, OK, gotcha. You're not going to give it a nickname."
Yes: (After a nickname is input:) "<Starter's nickname>! Is that the nickname you want?"
No: (Repeats the name input and confirmation.)
Yes: "<Starter's nickname>! That is such a great name!"
"Now you've got your Pokémon, so I'll give you this, too--a Pokédex! You want to know what it does? The Pokédex is a high-tech device that automatically records the Pokémon you encounter! So Professor Juniper wants you to carry this Pokédex, visit a lot of places, and meet all the Pokémon in the Unova region!"
  • If the player speaks to Bianca again before battling Hugh:
"Still, that Professor Juniper! The normal thing to do is to get an OK before sending someone clear out here, right?"
  • Upon Hugh's arrival:
(Hugh asks what the player is holding.) "It's a Pokédex!" (Hugh asks for a Pokédex too.) "Um...who are you again?" (Hugh answers.) "Well, OK! I don't really get it, but going on a journey is always good! Anyway, I just happen to have another Pokédex on me! It looks like Pokémon distribution has really changed compared to two years ago, so the more, the merrier!"
  • If the player speaks to Bianca before battling Hugh:
"Ooh, I just thought of something cool! You both have Pokémon, right? Why don't you have a Pokémon battle?"
  • After the battle between the player and Hugh:
"The Pokémon on both sides did their best! But this little one is still weak, so battle with it and make it stronger! All righty, let's go make your Pokémon better at the Pokémon Center! It's like the best place ever for Pokémon who battle and get hurt!"
"The Pokémon Center is the same no matter where you are! Let's go inside!" (Inside:) "OK! I'll show you around the Pokémon Center!" (Leading the player to the Nurse:) "The Pokémon Center heals Pokémon for free! You should bring your Pokémon here anytime they are weak." (The Nurse heals the player's Pokémon.) "Next, I'll explain the PC!" (Leading the player to the PC:) "This square thing is a PC! Any Trainer is free to use it! You can deposit Pokémon in it. Also, you can withdraw Pokémon from it! The next thing is over here!" (Leading the player to the Poké Mart:) "This is the Poké Mart! Here you can buy and sell many different items! The Poké Balls you use to capture Pokémon can also be bought at the Poké Mart! Here, <player>, I'll give you some Poké Balls!" (After giving the player the Poké Balls:) "Next up! I'll show you how to use those Poké Balls! Follow me!"
(After Hugh's sister gives the player the Town Map:) "Why are there two Town Maps?" (Hugh's sister says she wants the player to give one to Hugh.) "Aww, you guys! Just watching this makes me happy! C'mon, we're headed for Route 19! I'll teach you how to catch a Pokémon!"
  • At the player's house, after she gave the tutorial on Route 19:
"I was just talking to your mom! She told me an amazing story about Professor Juniper!"
"Heeey! How was it? How did your Pokémon battle with the Gym Leader go? Oh! If it isn't the Basic Badge! Wow! Amazing! And you just set off on your journey with your Pokémon! You definitely have potential as a Trainer! I'm sure of it! This is from me! It's the TM for the move Return."
"When a Pokémon knows Return, the more it gets along with the Trainer, the more powerful the move is!"
"Still, that Cheren..."
"Oh wow!"
"Wh-What's up?"
"M-me, too!"
"I registered Professor Juniper for you, too!"

Route 19

  • Before the tutorial:
"Heeey! This way! This kinda reminds me of that day on Route 1. OK, here's how it works. The Pokédex's pages fill up automatically when you meet Pokémon! And when you catch a Pokémon, more detailed information on it is added to the Pokédex! Here, I'll show you how to catch a Pokémon! Starting...NOW!"
  • During the tutorial:
"You just have to use a Poké Ball after lowering its HP!"
  • After the tutorial:
"What a relief! I caught a Pokémon! Oh! Um... Right. I'll go over the important stuff. First, go find a healthy Pokémon to catch! You need to remember this next bit! It's best to lower the Pokémon's HP before you try to catch it. Use your Pokémon's moves to lower the HP of the Pokémon you want to catch. Making it fall asleep or paralyzing it will make it even easier to catch! You're going to go deliver the Town Map to your friend, right? Continue straight this way to get to Floccesy Town! Bye now! Meet lots of Pokémon and catch a lot of them, OK?"
"Hi, Professor Juniper! It's really interesting over here! There are sooo many Pokémon we couldn't prove were here two years ago!"
"It'll be fine! Cheren's a new Gym Leader, I'm an Assistant Pokémon Professor, and <player> is a new Trainer, but we always have Pokémon by our sides!"
  • After the conversation:
"Hey, <player>! Isn't Professor Juniper cool? If you talk to her on the Xtransceiver, she'll evaluate the completeness of your Pokédex or tell you a lot about how Pokémon evolve! And you can call us, too, of course! I'll tell you how well you and your Pokémon are getting along, OK?!"
"Being a Gym Leader is even harder than I imagines."
"The next thing is to make is so you can use the C-Gear. The C-Gear is a cool device for communications, such as Infrared Connection or Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection."
  • Activating the C-Gear:
"Check this! The C-Gear was activated, and that screen showed up! If you touch the "?" icon in the bottom-right corner of the C-Gear screen, you can read about the C-Gear. Like, what are you going to do now? You know, there's another Pokémon Gym in Virbank City, which is just past Floccesy Town."

Floccesy Town

  • If the player attempts to go to Route 20:
"I'm sorry! I forgot to upgrade the Pokédex that I gave you! I'm going to add the Habitat List! It's an amazing feature! I'm just going to borrow your Pokédex for a second!"
"With the Habitat List, you can check which Pokémon are in the area! It's a mode in the Pokédex! To use it, open up the Pokédex and tap the Habitat List button on the lower left of the Touch Screen! Next, pick the area you want to see! You can see all the Pokémon that live in that area. It even tells you which ones you've already caught! Would you like to hear my explanation again?"
No: "I have a tip for you! When you're walking down a path, you'll sometimes see rustling grass! If you go to that spot... Well, I'll let the rest be a surprise! Filling up the Pokédex will make your world bigger! So go to many different places and meet many different Pokémon, OK? See you!"

Reversal Mountain

  • Upon meeting up with the player:
"Heeey! <Player>! Um, you know what? There's something I want to investigate here in Reversal Mountain. But the wild Pokémon here are really tough, and I'm having trouble with them! Could you come with me? Please? Oh! Don't worry! I'll take care of healing your Pokémon, OK? Ready? Let's go!"
  • Arriving at the exit:
Oh! Undella Town is right through here! I want to keep looking around a little bit. What do you want to do? Should we say bye for now?
No: "Well, then. Let's go look around a little more!"
Yes: "I want to do a little more research about Heatran anyway! Thank you for coming with me! Be careful on the rest of your journey!"

Nuvema Town (Memory Link)

"I have fond memories of this place... One day... <player's name in B/W>, Cheren, and I all gathered right here and took the first step of our adventure. It's a very special spot."
"Hey, <player>! Let's take our first step on Route 1 together! One, two!"
"Ha ha! That's what I said. Hey, while we're here, have a Pokémon battle with me! Talking about <player's name in B/W> put me in the mood for a Pokémon battle!"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss):
"S-s-still... That's fine. We're just fine!"
  • Last Pokémon low on health:
" a time like this, I am supposed to do...what?"
  • Being defeated:
"Thank you for having a battle with me! It was a lot of fun!"
  • After being defeated:
"Tee-hee! You're so tough! You're just like <player's name in B/W>! OK! I just have to remember what I felt like back then and work hard, too! Thanks! See you!"

Pokémon World Tournament

  • Before battle (first round):
"A Pokémon battle with you! I feel really excited!"
  • Before battle (second round):
"When I delivered the Pokémon to you in Aspertia City, I never would've imagined then I'd be battling with you here! That's right! Pokémon bring us together like this, don't they?! Isn't it a-MAZ-ing?"
  • Before battle (final round):
"Know what? When I traveled the Unova region, so many things happened to me, but I'm so glad I went on that journey! I met a lot of Pokémon and found what I really wanted to do... It's hard to put into words, but I want to express this feeling through my Pokémon."
  • Being defeated:
"Phew! You're really a strong Trainer, that's for sure!"
  • If the player is defeated:
"The Pokémon on both sides tried sooo hard, didn't they?"
  • After being defeated:
"Thank you for being my opponent! Yep! I learned a lot! Know what? Recently, I've been thinking Pokémon stay by our sides to bring people together... I'm thinking of researching that!"
  • After winning:
"I love your style of Pokémon battling! Somehow, your Pokémon look like they're having so much fun!"
  • In the lobby, after the tournament:
"Even if it's just little by little, I'm learning about Pokémon. I'm thinking about how to bring out the best from everyone, but I still have a ways to go. Oh, I almost forgot! Congratulations on your victory!"

Bianca in the anime

Bianca appears as a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. She is a friendly rival of Ash and occasional traveling companion. She is clumsy and hasty, but genuinely goodhearted and cares deeply for her Pokémon and the friends she makes on her journey. Her dad did not allow her to travel for some time, causing her to be slightly inexperienced for her age, but she doesn't take the opportunity for granted. She occasionally runs errands for Professor Juniper, one of which was bringing Ash his Badge case.
