Lorelei (Japanese: カンナ Kanna) is a master Template:Type2 Trainer.

In the anime

Due to a dubbing error, Lorelei was referred to as Prima in the English version of the anime. 4Kids claimed that she was named Prima instead because her English name has three syllables, while her Japanese name has two. She is voiced by Jayne Grand in English and 川村万梨阿 Maria Kawamura in Japanese.

While on Mandarin Island, Ash learned that Lorelei was going to be giving a lecture. Misty was very excited, as Lorelei was her idol.

Ash enthusiastically challenged her, but Lorelei didn't seem to take notice of him, unimpressed by the young trainer. Lorelei did, however, invite them to her lecture and demonstration.

After Ash insisted once again, Lorelei finally agreed to a battle - that Ash lost horribly. Lorelei said that Ash had the potential to become great, but needed to find more inner strength, since he had forgotten what really connecting with his Pokémon was.

Lorelei had a sort of dreamy, spaced-out personality and often reacted slowly to things. Her strategy in life is to go with the flow, like water, but to become as hard as ice in battle.

She sells recordings of her lectures at high prices.

In the games

Lorelei is the first trainer of the Elite Four. She is known for her logical, calculated, and cool style of battling.

In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Versions it's revealed that she grew up on Floe Island. Lorelei returns to her home to protect it from Team Rocket at one point in the game. She also collects stuffed Pokémon dolls that she keeps in her house on Floe Island.

Her Lapras has been with her ever since she was a child. She caught it when she was very young in the Icefall Cave.

Misty idolizes her, as in the anime.

Her whereabouts in Generation II are unknown, she is no longer a member of the Elite Four, and no mention of her is made. With the revelation of her home on Floe Island in Generation III, many suspect that she has returned there.
