Katrina (Japanese: カクリ Kakuri) is a character of the day from the Pokémon anime who appeared in A Bite to Remember.
Katrina is a Ranger who is in charge of protecting a Pokémon reserve located in a forest in Hoenn. Her three Mightyena and Poochyena assisted her in that matter, scaring away any intruders who harmed the Pokémon in the reserve. As soon as Max started scaring away the Pokémon there, Katrina accused them of being intruders and had her Mightyena and Poochyena take care of Ash and his friends. During the battle with the Dark-type Pokémon, Katrina showed up and explained to Ash and his friends that they were on a Pokémon reserve. Later, she took them to the preserve center where she takes care of any Pokémon who are injured and nurses them back to health.
Max befriended Katrina's Poochyena during his time at the reserve as he wanted to help it evolve. Katrina allowed him to do so and gave the group a place to stay. While Max was training Poochyena so it could evolve, Katrina went to the forest and found a piece of a net that was used for catching Pokémon. She took the group to the area where she found that object, and they ended up finding Max in a confrontation with Team Rocket, as the trio were responsible for taking the Pokémon from the reserve. Poochyena became one of the Pokémon caught in the net. With Max's encouragement of Poochyena using Bite, Poochyena successfully used the move and freed itself, along with the trapped Pokémon, with Pikachu finishing off the villains. The battle with Team Rocket caused Poochyena to evolve into Mightyena, much to Max's excitement.

| Katrina uses these Mightyena to protect the reserve, one of which was a Poochyena. They were first seen approaching Ash and his friends after Max's excitement scared any some Pokémon in the reserve. The Mightyena had a battle with Pikachu, Torchic and Forretress until Katrina and Poochyena showed up.
At the reserve center, Katrina explained to the group that Poochyena and the Mightyena are the same age and that Poochyena didn't evolve at the same time as the others, despite its age. Max trained the Poochyena in order to accomplish that goal. It had battled Torchic, but that wasn't enough.
Later, Team Rocket kidnapped Poochyena, along with the Pokémon in the reserve. Mightyena and the group arrived to rescue the stolen Pokémon. Max encouraged Poochyena to use Bite to free the Pokémon in the net. Poochyena successfully did so and was freed. The battle with the villains caused Poochyena to evolve into Mightyena.
The Mightyena that evolved from Poochyena knows Tackle and Bite.
None of the other three Mightyena's moves are known.
