Lanette (Japanese: マユミ Mayumi) is the younger sister of Brigette and, like her, a computer technician. She lives in a house on Route 114 near Fallarbor Town and has appeared in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the Pokémon Adventures manga, and the Pokémon Trading Card Game.

In the games

Lanette in Pokémon Emerald

An expert in computing, Lanette upgraded Bill's Pokémon Storage System, giving it a user-friendly graphical interface and the ability to store more Pokémon and change the wallpaper of the Boxes in which Pokémon are stored.

Her house, located on Route 114, gets greatly cluttered when she is engrossed in her research. In return for keeping it a secret, she gives the player a SeedotRE or LotadSE doll.

Quotes

Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald

Fallarbor Pokémon Center
"Oh, hello. You are? Okay, your name's <player>. I can see that you're a Trainer. So that means you use the Pokémon Storage System I developed. How I arrived at that conclusion is a simple deductive process. You spoke to me because you wanted to access something on this PC. Oh, I'm sorry. I'm Lanette. Honestly, I'm glad to meet you—it's great you're using the Storage System. If you could, please visit me at home. My house is on Route 114."
Lanette's house
"Oh! <Player>! I'm sorry everything is so cluttered... When I get engrossed in research, things end up this way... This is embarrassing... Please keep this a secret in exchange for this."
"May I offer advice about my Pokémon Storage System? You should organize your Boxes so you can tell which Pokémon are in them."

"Oh, <player>. You want to return the order of the menu in the PC back to normal, don't you?"

Lanette with Brigette, Bill, and Celio in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Lanette and her sister went to Kanto to upgrade its Pokémon Storage System and make it compatible with the one in Hoenn. This allowed Pokémon Trainers to move Pokémon between the two regions. She and Brigette were the ones to suggest a similarity in Castform and Deoxys's required conditions for changing forms. This information came in handy for Red; he and Mewtwo later fought Deoxys after it was caught by Giovanni.
