From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Professor Philena Ivy (Japanese: ウチキド博士 Dr. Uchikido) is a Pokémon Professor who resides on Valencia Island with her three assistants.
She is considered very attractive, but her beautiful looks do not negate her achievements as a Pokémon researcher.
She and Professor Oak are good friends. Professor Ivy found the GS Ball and contacted Oak about it, but even her finest equipment couldn't crack it open.
Brock falls in love with her and stays with her during Ash Ketchum's Orange League adventure. Not only did they part on mysterious terms, but the details of Brock's work at her lab have never been fully explained. Whatever happened, speaking Philena's name around Brock causes him to curl up into a ball and simply state, "Don't mention that name!" The events that caused Brock to be traumatized have been the subject of fan speculation for quite some time.
Professor Ivy's field of research is regional differences in Pokémon physiology.
In Poké Ball Peril, she and a Raticate get sent to a hospital because they got in the way of Vileplume scattering pollen.
In The Power Of One, she was seen with Brock at the lab. After that she is seen later in a helicopter with Professor Oak.
- In the English dub, Professor Ivy is the only professor in the main anime regions not to be named after a tree, however, she is still named after a plant. Ivy often grows on oak trees, so her name may be a reference to her friendship with Professor Oak.
- She shares her French name with May.
