Maria

Maria (Japanese: ミコト Mikoto), or Temple Maiden Maria, is a recurring character from the anime. She is the guardian of the Snowpoint Temple.

She first appeared in A Pyramiding Rage! where she welcomed Brandon right after his arrival. She and Samuel left to investigate the Snowpoint Temple and then later warns Brandon that Pokémon Hunter J has attacked the Temple. Maria and Brandon asked her not to disturb Regigigas, which resides in the Temple, but J ignored their warnings, causing damage to the Temple. Afterwards, when J had retreated and Regigigas had gone back to sleep, Maria prepared to rebuild the temple back to its former glory.

Regigigas
After guarding Snowpoint Temple for years, Maria was present when Pokémon Hunter J woke Regigigas to capture it. After Regirock, Registeel, Regice, and Brandon were all turned to stone by J in order to protect Regigigas, Maria begged it to restore them to their original forms. It granted her wish and she thanked it before it went back to sleep.
