Lillie (Japanese: リーリエ Lilie) is a student at the Pokémon School on Melemele Island and one of Ash's classmates. She made her debut in Alola to New Adventure!.

History

Lillie is the daughter of Lusamine and younger sister of Gladion, who lives in a mansion estate in Hau'oli City. Little is known about her childhood, except that she once enjoyed playing with Pokémon. However, she developed a crippling fear of them following an incident at another mansion that she could not recall. Lillie returned to her Hau'oli estate while her mother remained behind and her brother went on to live elsewhere, leaving her under the care of her family's servants. Despite her fear of Pokémon, Lillie continued to enjoy studying them and enrolled at the Pokémon School on Melemele Island.

Lillie's fear of touching Pokémon

Lillie made her anime debut in Alola to New Adventure!, where she tried in vain to warn Ash from being trampled by her classmates' Tauros as he stumbled upon the school. She quickly demonstrated her fear of Pokémon when she cowered behind Ash upon being approached by one of the Tauros, only to be startled by his Pikachu. Later, when Ash described an unfamiliar Pokémon that he but no one else had witnessed, Lillie deduced that he saw Tapu Koko, the island's guardian deity.

In The Guardian's Challenge, after Ash enrolled in the school and showed his new classmates the Z-Ring he received from Tapu Koko, Lillie explained the guardian's fickle and mischievous nature to him. She and the other classmates saw Tapu Koko for themselves when it appeared to challenge Ash and Pikachu to a Pokémon battle, during which Lillie advised Ash about Tapu Koko's techniques.

In Lillie's Egg-xhilarating Challenge!, Lillie agreed to watch over a newly discovered Pokémon Egg from Mount Lanakila for a class assignment, seeing it as an opportunity to finally overcome her fear of touching Pokémon. After several failed exercises at petting Ash's Pikachu, Rowlet, and Rotom Pokédex, Lillie was able to touch the Egg when she instinctively shielded it from a wild Salandit.

In Racing to a Big Event!, Lillie watched her friends participate in the Pokémon Pancake Race. At the end of the episode, her Egg hatched, and was discovered to be an Alolan Vulpix.

Lillie officially caught the Vulpix, which she named Shiron, in Getting to Know You!, making her a Pokémon Trainer like the others. Though her fear of touching Pokémon initially persisted, she spent time bonding with Shiron. Eventually they were confronted by Team Rocket, and Shiron used Powder Snow to protect Lillie from Mareanie. When Shiron was blasted off a rooftop by Mareanie's Sludge Bomb, Lillie leapt off after it and caught it. They were saved by Ash's Rowlet. After that, Team Rocket was frozen by Shiron's Powder Snow, and taken away by Bewear. From that point on, Lillie was okay with holding Shiron, though she still froze at contact with other Pokémon like Togedemaru.

Lillie was reunited with her brother in SM027.

Character

Lillie and Hobbes

Lillie is a polite and kindhearted girl from a wealthy upbringing who always shows care and concern for others. She is terrified of physically interacting with Pokémon, and tends to freeze up whenever one Pokémon enters her personal space; in Yo, Ho, Ho! Go, Popplio!, she goes so far as to wear a full suit of diving gear to avoid making contact with Pokémon during a fishing class. When other characters point out her fear, she denies it by saying she simply chooses to avoid Pokémon. Hobbes reveals in Lillie's Egg-xhilarating Challenge! that the fear came from an incident during a trip with her mother that Lillie doesn't recall. As of Getting to Know You!, she is now comfortable with touching her own Pokémon.

Despite her fear, Lillie enjoys studying Pokémon from a researcher's perspective, and is comfortable with being around them at a safe distance. She is extremely knowledgeable about the behavior, types, and background of Alola's native Pokémon species and regional variants, including guardian deities such as Tapu Koko. However, she appears to know little about Pokémon in other regions, as seen when she expresses surprise that Exeggutor—a Grass/Dragon-type Pokémon in Alola—is a Grass/Psychic-type Pokémon elsewhere.
