Sonrisa

Sonrisa (Japanese: チサト Chisato) is a young woman who was the character of the day in Grin to Win!.

She lives in Bloomingvale in Johto and raises Sunflora to compete in the Sunflora Festival. She has her own personal greenhouse with her own home-made irrigation system to raise her Sunflora. Unlike other Trainers who used various odd methods of Pokémon raising such as trips to tanning salons or hiring performers to keep them entertained, Sonrisa simply provided her Pokémon with fresh air, water, and sunshine.

Her prize Sunflora, Sunny, fell into a depression before the festival because its neighbor Sunflora was traded away to Nurse Joy. Sunny later won the festival after displaying its powerful Solar Beam technique.

Sonrisa's Sunflora, Sunny, is her prize Sunflora which she used to compete in the Sunflora Festival held in Bloomingvale. Sunny was in depression because Sonrisa's neighbor's Sunflora, called Gwendela, was traded to Nurse Joy. It first appeared with two of Sonrisa's other Sunflora. While the other two were happy, Sunny was gloomy. Brock and Pikachu tried to cheer it up by making funny faces but did not succeed and it later fell asleep in the greenhouse. During the night, Sonrisa and Sunny came to the scene when Team Rocket attempted to steal the Sunflora. Sunny talked to Meowth he lead them to Nurse Joy. Sunny was led to Gwendela and together they started to dance, happily reunited. Sonny then returned to its normal self.

The next day in the Sunflora Festival, the best contestants were Sunny, Cyrus's Sunflora, Dorabelle and Meowth dressed as a Sunflora. Meowth's disguise was eventually ruined and James activated huge mirrors which made Sunny and the other Sunflora fall to the ground, but with the help of Ash and his friends, they were able to send Team Rocket blasting off with Sunflora's Solar Beam. With a great smile and a dazzling performance the judges awarded Sonrisa as the title of winner.

Sunny's only known move is Solar Beam.

Trivia
