Arena Tycoon Greta (Japanese: アリーナキャプテン コゴミ Arena Captain Kogomi) is the Frontier Brain and leader of the Battle Frontier's Battle Arena. She is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Arena Tycoon (Japanese: アリーナキャプテン Arena Captain).

In the games

Greta can be blunt, and if an opponent looks weak, she'll let them know. She likes tough trainers, and will gladly hand over the Guts Symbol if defeated.


Silver Symbol challenge

Gold Symbol challenge


  • First battle:

"Hey! Howdy! ...Wait, are you the challenger? Is this right? Hmm... Hmhm... I don't know how to say it, but... To put it bluntly, you look pretty weak. Are you sure you're up for me? Hmm... Well, all right! We'll take things easy to start with! Okay! Let's see you ignite my passion for battle!"

"No way! Good job! Ow, wait a second! You are tough after all! I like you! Let's see your Frontier Pass. It's going to be fun the next time! I'm looking forward to it!"

  • Second battle:

"Hey! Howdy! You finally won your way up to me! I was getting worried waiting for you! I was really looking forward to seeing you again! ... ... ... So, are you ready? I won't allow a halfhearted effort! Be ready for a thrashing! Come on, referee! Let's get this started!"

"Huh? Are you serious?! Gaaah! Blown away! Let's see your Frontier Pass! Arrrgh! This is so infuriating! If we ever battle again, I won't lose! Don't you forget it! Bye-bye!"

In the anime

Greta in the anime

Greta appeared in one episode of the anime. She's a spirited, tomboyish young girl who's very passionate about Pokémon battles. She also runs a karate dojo as a parallel activity. According to Scott, her role models are Chuck and Brawly.

Greta's sole appearance was in Wheel of Frontier. Before the battle, a wheel is spun to decide how many Pokémon will be used. While battles are single battles, the other Pokémon intended to be used remain outside of their Poké Ball until they faint. A running gag of the episode was that Ash and Greta were very similar in personality, both being fiery and passionate about battles.

Greta used a Hariyama and Medicham in her battle against Ash Ketchum. After a hard fought battle, Ash was able to win the Guts Symbol.

When Team Rocket interrupted the battle, she was already aware of who they were. She used her Medicham to send them flying after one attack.
