From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Terri (Japanese: ツグヨ Tsuguyo) is a character of the day who appeared in Pasta La Vista.
Terri tried to convince her friend Kyle Hamm to return to the dojo his father owned. Kyle's father, Master Hamm, wanted his son to take over the dojo when he retired, but Kyle wanted to become a noodle chef. After Ash and his friends suggested that Kyle and his father should settle that issue in a battle, Terri acted as referee for the match. But since Master Hamm suffered from old-age injury to his back, Terri interrupted the battle. Ash and May volunteered to take the place of Master Hamm and Kyle, respectively, much to Terri's shock and dismay.
However, Team Rocket interrupted the battle and began to make off with the Fighting Pokémon that belonged to the dojo. Terri, not wanting the trio to get away, sent out her Hitmontop to defeat them.
After the attack, Master Hamm agreed to allow Kyle to pursue his dreams while Terri helped out at the dojo.
