Lotus (Japanese: ロータス Lotus) is a character of the day in Searching for a Wish!. She is the mother of Gemma and lives with her in a valley on Capacia Island in the Decolore Islands.
Lotus first appeared treating Gemma when she injured her ankle trying to climb up a mountain, in pursuit of Jirachi. When Gemma told of her yearn for Jirachi to grant her wish, she explained to Ash and his friends that the valley they live in wasn't always as dry as it now was. It was once a fertile, vibrant land with a lot of vegetation. However, the climate grew hotter, and this caused the land to dry up. All of their neighbors moved away, including her husband, Carlton, who was very depressed about the loss of their garden. Though she told her daughter that finding Jirachi is not an easy task as it is very shy to humans, Lotus was supportive of her daughter's idea to have Jirachi, who often resides in the valley, to restore it to the vibrant land it once was. Day after day, she attempted to regrow her garden, but with no luck. When Jirachi granted Gemma's wish and the land was restored, however, her replanted garden began to grow. In addition, she and Gemma were reunited with Carlton.
