Narissa

Narissa (Japanese: マキナ Makina) is the character of the day in Dealing With a Fierce Double Ditto Drama!.

Narissa is a beginning Pokémon Trainer who owns two Ditto: one with regular coloration and one that is Shiny. She also owns an orange-colored Pokédex.

Upon meeting Ash and his friends, Narissa seemed incredibly full of herself, calling Ash a "newb" Trainer before proudly announcing that she had been a Trainer for one month. She additionally claimed that she had no Badges because the Gym Leaders would run in fear of her Ditto. Like when she was about to participate with her Ditto in a Double Battle against a Trainer's Cubone and Marowak, Narissa had them both take the form of a passing Zapdos, causing the Trainer and his Pokémon to run in fear.

Despite this tough and confident facade, however, Narissa is in actuality quite meek and self-conscious, as well as being a crybaby. She cosplays as Flint of the Sinnoh Elite Four, whom she greatly admires, in order to help her feel more sure of herself.

Pokémon

Ditto 1
Ditto 1
Narissa's first Ditto, nicknamed Ditto 1 (Japanese: メタモン1号 Metamon Ichigō) is of normal coloration, and first appeared to the gang when it transformed into Pikachu, Piplup, Gible and Togekiss and caused mischief until Narissa turned up. Ditto was later used in battle against Pikachu, however despite being able to use Pikachu's powerful moves (like Iron Tail and Volt Tackle) it was easily defeated. Team Rocket later attempted to steal both Narissa's Ditto, however they escaped and teamed up with Ash's Pikachu and sent Team Rocket blasting off with a triple-Thunderbolt.

Ditto 1's only move is Transform.
Ditto 1 has also used Thunderbolt*, Iron Tail*, Volt Tackle*, Pound*, Hammer Arm*, Aerial Ace*, Quick Attack*, and Poison Jab* via Transform.

Narissa also owns a Shiny Ditto, nicknamed Ditto 2 (Japanese: メタモン2号 Metamon Nigō). After joining its regular counterpart in causing mischief, Ash battled the Shiny Ditto with Infernape. In turn, Ditto transformed into an Infernape itself. After trading a series of Mach Punches, the round ended in Ash's favor. Later, the Shiny Ditto helped Ash his friends foil another Team Rocket scheme.

Ditto 2's only move is Transform.
Ditto 2 has also used Flame Wheel*, Mach Punch*, Pound*, Hammer Arm*, Aerial Ace*, Dig*, Thunderbolt*, and Poison Jab* via Transform.

Trivia

  • She is somewhat similar to Duplica, having two Ditto (with one of them being somewhat special) and cosplaying.
  • She, along with Wilhelmina, Temacu, Natalie, Lucy, Holly and Autumn, is one of the few girls to have shown some feelings for Brock. Narissa, however, quickly got over these feelings once she witnessed Brock falling in love with a passing Trainer and once again declared Flint as the one she most admires.
  • Narissa was named Marina on Pokémon.com.
  • Her English name may be a reference to narcissist, which relates to the level of her initial ego and elitism.
  • In the Finnish dub Narissa speaks Helsinki slang.
