Sabrina (Japanese: ナツメ Natsume) is the Gym Leader of Saffron City's Gym, known officially as the Saffron Gym. She hands out the Marsh Badge to Trainers who defeat her. She is a young lady with psychic abilities, and thus trains Psychic-type Pokémon.

Contents

In the games

Sabrina has appeared in every generation of Pokémon other than Generation V and Generation VI as the Gym Leader of the Saffron Gym. Known as "The Master of Psychic Pokémon" ("The Mistress of Psychic-type Pokémon" in Generation IV), she has had psychic powers ever since she was a child, when she accidentally bent a spoon. She apparently dislikes battling, but is hard to beat because she can communicate with her Pokémon telepathically. Her fame has grown so much that even Trainers living in the Sevii Islands have heard of her. Previously there were two Gyms in Saffron City, a Fighting-type Gym, and a Psychic-type Gym. Sabrina used her advantage to defeat the rival Gym and strip them of their Gym status.

She appears to have the ability to see the future. In Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal she states that three years ago she foresaw the arrival of another strong challenger (realized in the form of Ethan, Kris, and Lyra). After this second defeat, she accepts that the ability of foresight may be limited.

In Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, FireRed, and LeafGreen, Trainers must navigate warp tiles to find Sabrina hiding in the middle of her Gym. Defeating her will earn them the Marsh Badge and a Psychic-type TM: TM46 (Psywave) in Generation I; TM04 (Calm Mind) in Generation III. The Gym maintains a similar style in Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver. The warp tiles are maintained, as is the Badge: Sabrina, however, gives no TM in Generation II and TM48 (Skill Swap) in Generation IV.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Sabrina has received a major redesign, now sporting a vastly different hairstyle and changing her wardrobe from a conservative dark-red turtleneck to a completely new, more casual-looking outfit. After her initial defeat in Saffron City, she ventures outside of her Gym. She can be found at the dock for the S.S. Aqua in the Olivine City Harbor at any time on Friday. After the player has obtained her phone number here, she can be called during Sunday afternoon to arrange a rematch at the Fighting Dojo she once defeated.

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Sabrina appears in the Pokémon World Tournament as a participant along with other Gym Leaders. She also takes part in Pokéstar Studios movies as Magic Queen Bellelba (Japanese: まほうクイーン ジュジュベ Magic Queen Jujube), a villain in Mystery Doors of the Magical Land Series.

Sabrina also appears in Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium 2. A large number of her Pokémon here are not of the Psychic-type.

Sabrina with a doll of her former self

In the anime, Sabrina was the fourth Gym Leader Ash encountered. He challenged her initially in Abra and the Psychic Showdown, and had a rematch with her in Haunter Versus Kadabra.

Sabrina inherited her psychic power from her father, who had the ability to teleport from location to location, as well as telekinesis. It manifested when she was young, and it was soon apparent that Sabrina's abilities far exceeded her father's. She was able to use her psychic powers to do many things- teleportation, telepathy, psychokinesis, and transmutation.

As her power increased, she grew more obsessed with developing it. She became less and less emotional, using her abilities for destructive purposes, even transforming her mother into a doll. This caused a deep psychological rift. The emotions she tried to shut off developed into a separate personality- a young girl who manifested as a puppet around Sabrina. Sabrina's mind was divided into the cold, callous woman with a thirst for power and the little girl who just wanted to have fun.

Sabrina became the Leader of the Saffron Gym, and turned it into an institute where fellow psychics could develop their powers. Ash was headed to Saffron City one day, unknowingly watched by Sabrina. Sabrina's younger self used her psychic abilities to save Ash and his friends from Team Rocket. The next day, despite warnings from a mysterious man, Ash challenged Sabrina and lost miserably. Sabrina used her powers to shrink Ash and his friends, but they were saved by the same man. He cautioned Ash that only Ghost-type Pokémon could defeat Psychic-types.

Ash resolved to catch a Ghost-type Pokémon. After a trip to the Lavender Tower, Ash returned with a Haunter he had befriended. Ash challenged Sabrina to a rematch, but Haunter had wandered off in the meantime. Ash managed to escape Sabrina's wrath, rescued by the mysterious man once again, but Brock and Misty were transformed into dolls and placed into a dollhouse, where they met Sabrina's mother in the same predicament.

After talking with the man, who was revealed to be Sabrina's father, Ash returned once more, and during the match, Haunter appeared and started to playfully tease Sabrina. Haunter's antics delighted Sabrina so much, that she was no longer able to contain her emotions and started to laugh. This caused her two personalities to merge back into one. Ash was deemed the winner of the match due to the inability of Sabrina or her psychically-linked Pokémon to battle, and he won the Marsh Badge. Haunter chose to stay with Sabrina and her reunited family.

She was seen in a flashback in The Tower of Terror.

Sabrina's Kadabra
Abra → Kadabra
Main article: Sabrina's Kadabra

Kadabra first appeared as an Abra in Abra and the Psychic Showdown. Sabrina used it in a one-on-one Gym battle against Ash. During the battle with Ash's Pikachu, Abra evolved into a Kadabra and with its Psychic-type attacks, it eventually caused Ash to forfeit the match to save Pikachu from being further injured. It was shown that Sabrina and Kadabra share a strong psychic bond.

Ash later returned for a rematch in Haunter Versus Kadabra. During the battle, Ash's Haunter appeared during the battle and made Sabrina laugh for the first time in years, which caused Kadabra to laugh as well due to the psychic bond it has with Sabrina. Due to this, Sabrina decided to give the Marsh Badge to Ash.

Main article: Sabrina's Haunter

Haunter first appeared in The Tower of Terror. Ash went to the Pokémon Tower to capture a Ghost-type Pokémon, because Sabrina's father told him Ghost-type Pokémon were strong against Psychic types like Kadabra. When he was there, he ran into Haunter, as well as its other two evolutionary family members Gastly and Gengar. Ash did not capture any of the three Pokémon, but on the way back to Saffron, he discovered Haunter was following him and decided to use it in his battle with Sabrina.

After returning to the Gym and announcing he wanted to battle Sabrina again, Haunter disappeared, forcing Ash to use his Pikachu once again. Before the battle was completed, however, Haunter appeared in front of Sabrina and started making faces, causing her to smile and laugh for the first time in many years. Because Sabrina and Kadabra shared a psychic connection, both her and Kadabra were unable to battle from laughing so hard. After Ash was given the Marsh Badge and was ready to leave, Haunter remained in Saffron City.

Sabrina with Pikachu in The Electric Tale of Pikachu

The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga probably presents the most sympathetic portrayal of Sabrina. She appears in the chapter Haunting My Dreams as a kind and gentle shrine maiden who runs a Gym in the mountains with her Abra.

When she was a child, Sabrina's Pokémon were all killed by a gigantic Haunter that used Dream Eater to suck out their souls. After defeating Ash in a Gym battle, Sabrina hears of the giant Haunter appearing at the Pokémon Tower, and went off to go defeat it. Unfortunately, she herself fell prey to the Haunter and her soul was sucked out. With Brock and Ash's help, Sabrina is able to defeat the Haunter. Although Ash tries to catch it with an Ultra Ball, it kills itself using Selfdestruct rather than let itself be captured.

Mentioned

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Sabrina in Pokémon Adventures

Sabrina is one of the three villainous heads of Team Rocket, and serves under Giovanni in Pokémon Adventures.

She first appears in Meanwhile...Vileplume!, where she floats on top of her Kadabra and spots Red leaving with an Eevee that Team Rocket experimented on. She comments how perfect it is that Eevee is in his hands and takes her leave elsewhere. Under Giovanni's orders, Sabrina captured Moltres and brought it to him at Saffron City. She attacks Red at Pallet Town, where she reveals that she has kidnapped Professor Oak and taunts Red by telling him to come to Saffron City. Once they arrive, they find out that Sabrina's Mr. Mime closed off Saffron City with a barrier.

Sabrina as a member of Team Rocket

Once Red, Blue, and Green manage to get past the barrier and inside the Silph Co. building, they are split up and face the three Rocket members alone. Sabrina is paired up against Green, who she forces to relive painful moments of her past by using her psychic abilities to pry into her mind and make her fears look real through illusions. Green eventually escapes the illusions by goading Sabrina into slashing her dress open, revealing two of her Pokémon hidden in her chest. Green's Pokémon use sound attacks to prevent Sabrina from using her powers and causing the illusions to fail. With Sabrina distracted, Green takes this chance to steal Sabrina's Marsh Badge and make her escape.

Sabrina eventually gets out of the attack and finds Red and Green with the Badge Energy Amplifier. Angered, she summons Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno and has them surround Red. When Green activates the machine in order to obtain the new Pokémon she assumed it would create, she accidentally causes the three legendary Pokémon to fuse into one creature. Sabrina commands Thu-Fi-Zer and uses it to attack the three with its great strength. Eventually, it is defeated when Red, Blue, and Green combine their attacks into one and manage to separate the three Pokémon back into their original forms.

In the Yellow chapter, Sabrina reappears with Koga and Lt. Surge to help battle the Elite Four on Cerise Island. There, they reveal that after their defeat at the Silph Co. building, they managed to escape and were planning on making a comeback before the Elite Four showed up. Although reluctant, the Rocket triad decides to work together with their former enemies to defeat their common opponents. Sabrina uses the Spoons of Destiny to decide with pair would face which member of the Elite Four. Sabrina is paired up with Green, and the two head off to face Lorelei in battle.

Sabrina in the eleventh chapter

As soon as they arrive to face their opponent, Lorelei binds the two together with her ice handcuffs. Due to their lack of proper teamwork, the battle was only made harder with Sabrina and Green bound together. Eventually, Green defeats Lorelei after revealing the arm that was bound to Sabrina's arm was actually her Ditty in disguise and uses it to tie the villain up. This angers Sabrina, who soon yells at Green for fooling her just like she did to Lorelei. With the battle over, Sabrina leaves Green to meet up with Giovanni, who had also come to help battle. Although she and Lt. Surge suggest restarting Team Rocket again, Giovanni tells the two to go home and continue tending to their Gyms.

The battle with Lorelei gave Sabrina severe frostbite injuries on her wrist. She managed to cure this by travelling to Mt. Silver and bathed in the hot springs found there. There, she encountered Red, who was there to cure his own frostbite injuries, and told him that something was going to happen at the Pokémon League. After leaving, Sabrina leaves Red a note telling him about another hot spring that can cure his frostbite much faster so that he can get to the Pokémon League quickly.

Afterward, she travels to the Pokémon League to have an exhibition match with the other Kanto Gym Leaders against the Johto Gym Leaders. Sabrina is paired up against Bugsy, whose attempts to befriend her end in vain. Despite the type disadvantage, Sabrina manages to defeat Bugsy with her Mr. Mime, who uses it abilities to create invisible walls to its advantage. When the Masked Man attacks the Pokémon League with his army of mind controlled Team Rocket Grunts, Sabrina assists her fellow Gym Leaders by battling the army. Once the battle had finally ended, Sabrina went back to usual Gym Leader duties.

Much later, Sabrina makes an appearance in the Black 2 & White 2 chapter. Here, she is revealed to have become an actress at Pokéstar Studios. When she notices Whi-Two having trouble picking a movie to act in, Sabrina has her Alakazam use its abilities to pick out a Brycen-Man movie for her.
