In the anime

Lucy in the anime

Lucy appeared in the episode Queen of the Serpentine!. In the anime, it was mentioned that she does not teach her Pokémon defensive moves.

Before battling Ash, she had rescued his Pikachu from Team Rocket with her Seviper, defeating Jessie's Seviper in the process.

In the battle, Ash started off by using his Donphan against Lucy's Seviper. For a while, Lucy seemed to be having the upper hand despite the type disadvantage. However, Ash managed to turn the tables on the serpent Pokémon by using Donphan's Rollout to counter Seviper's Flamethrower, knocking it out of the battle.

Lucy then sent out her Milotic, which easily took out Donphan with just a single powerful Hydro Pump attack. Left with no other choice, Ash decided to use Pikachu. However, again, despite the type disadvantage, Lucy almost managed to defeat the electric-mouse Pokémon by treating him to a barrage of Hydro Pumps and Twisters. She even used Milotic's paralyzed state to her advantage by using Facade. Ash finally managed to defeat Milotic and win the match when he used an innovative move by making Pikachu jump inside one of the twisters and using a spinning Volt Tackle.

In addition to her preference of serpentine Pokémon, Lucy also seems to have a soft spot for squinty eyes, as she was shown to keep several pet Pokémon at home, all of which have squinty eyes. She also developed a crush on Brock due to his squinty eyes.

Lucy in the anime is very different from her game self personality wise. In the anime, though quiet, Lucy seems to be a a rather nice person, allowing Ash to battle her even though the Pike was closed that particular day. She also congratulated him on his victory. In the games, however, she is narcissistic and seems to be very irritated when the player defeats her. Her change of attitude in the anime can be attributed to her crush on Brock and a desire to impress him. She reappeared in a flashback in A Pyramiding Rage!.


This listing is of Lucy's known Pokémon in the anime:

In addition to the Pokémon Lucy uses in battle, she also has many other Pokémon at home. Her Pokémon at home include Abra, Snorlax, Cyndaquil, Swinub, Makuhita, and Skitty. All the Pokémon share the fact that they all have squinted eyes, which influenced Lucy to later develop an interest in Brock. Their battle extent is not known, as it seems they are only used as pets.

Lucy in the Pokémon Adventures manga

Lucy makes her first appearance battling alongside Palace Maven Spenser in a battle demonstration for the Battle Frontiers opening ceremony. They fight a Swalot and Electrode and with her Seviper's Shed Skin and Dig, they defeat their opponents.

After Emerald’s commotion at the Battle Frontier’s opening ceremony she holds the boy captive with her Seviper and decides to let him challenge the Battle Frontier and convinces the other Brain’s and Scott to agree with it. After Noland’s defeat she waits at the Battle Pike and decides to be Emerald’s second challenge. During Emerald’s run through the Battle Pike, she explains the rules of her Battle Facility to Todd and how in order to win, one must have luck. After Emerald manages to reach the 140th floor of the Battle Pike they begin their battle. Even with her powerful poisoning tactic, she is eventually defeated by Emerald’s quick wits and gives him the Luck Symbol as his reward.

Later, she and the other Frontier Brains (and the tag-along Todd) follow Emerald to the Artisan cave in his search for the legendary Pokémon Jirachi and are forced to fight the wild Smeargle that live there while Emerald skips on ahead. When Guile Hideout makes his appearance she, Brandon, Spenser, and Tucker attempt to fight him but are easily blown away by his sword.

She later appears welcoming people to the Battle Dome along with Greta during Emerald's Battle Dome challenge and sighs in disappointment because they have been reduced to simple ushers. Noland and Brandon manage to cheer them up with the fact that they’re helping people have a good time at the Frontier and later join them in a search for Jirachi. After Tucker defeats Emerald and he spots Guile, they go on the attack but are helpless to stop him as he finally manages to capture Jirachi. After Guile lets loose several Rental Pokémon, she and the other Brains battle them to keep the panicking crowd safe from harm. She and the other Brains were defeated when Guile Hideout flooded the Frontier with his Monster Kyogre but were seen celebrating with Scott and the Pokédex Holders after Guile's defeat.

Lucy in Pokémon Battle Frontier

Lucy makes an appearance in The Predestined Battle! where she is Enta's next challenger after defeating Spenser.

Lucy watches from the shadows when Enta was battling Spenser. After the battle, Enta's Zangoose pops out of its Poké Ball, agitated. This gave Lucy a chance to show herself. She has a talk with Enta regarding his strength while her Seviper's presence made Zangoose even angrier. Lucy gets upset at Enta when he calls her middle aged and heads over to the Battle Pike. This makes Enta decide to challenge the Battle pike next. After arriving, Enta is welcomed by Lucy and their challenge begins. Once again, Enta calls her middle aged and she gets upset from this comment. During the battle, when Seviper and Zangoose were up, she explains to Enta about the bitter rivalry between the two, making Enta realize Zangoose's feelings. With Zangoose feeling much calmer, Enta was able to defeat Lucy and win his sixth Frontier Symbol. After the battle, Lucy comments on his talent and congratulates him. She then tells him that the final Frontier Brain was none other than Anabel. This made Enta excited for his battle with Anabel.


Lucy's Shuckle
Shuckle was the first Pokémon Lucy used against Enta. It battled with Enta's Vulpix as the first opponent but the outcome between the two wasn't shown. It was defeated later on when both sides were down to one Pokémon.
