Argenta (Japanese: ケイト Kate) is the Frontier Brain in charge of running the Battle Frontier's Battle Hall. She is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Hall Matron (Japanese: ステージマドンナ Stage Madonna).

In the games

Argenta is the Frontier Brain of the Battle Hall in the Sinnoh and Johto regions. She can be challenged after 50 consecutive battles, which is unique as all other Frontier Brains can be challenged after 21 consecutive battles. Once defeated, she will give away the silver commemorative print. Argenta can be challenged again after 170 consecutive battles, and will give away the gold commemorative print when defeated. The player must defeat all types at least 10 times before challenging her again and again.

Pokémon

When challenged for the Silver Print, Argenta will use a Pokémon that has a base stat total similar to the one used by the player. These Pokémon are the same as the Pokémon used by ordinary trainers in the Battle Hall.

Argenta has these Pokémon when she is challenged for the Gold Print:

The level of Argenta's Pokémon will always be set to match that of the player's.

Quotes

Initial battle
  • Before battle
"My Battle Hall allows Trainers to mount challenges with their one favorite Pokémon. I imagine there were tense moments getting here with your chosen one. But understand that one shines the brightest when a challenge is overcome. I am Argenta, and I am your final and most daunting challenge. I dare you to overcome my challenge."
  • Being defeated
"Oh...I detest how fun times seem to end so quickly."
  • After being defeated
"A good Trainer doesn't force their favorite on anyone. A good one keeps with their favorite without drama or fanfare. That is how I see it, at least. And, by the way I see it, you're an excellent Trainer! Be sure to visit the Battle Hall again with a favorite Pokémon. Until then, bye-bye!"
Rematch
  • Before battle
"Well! My goodness, your Pokémon... It's got star power beyond belief. Even from inside its Poké Ball, I can feel its charismatic brilliance. But I'm the Hall Matron. I'll be the judge of that. I must battle it for myself and see if that brilliance is genuine. That is why we must battle now."
  • Being defeated
"It's so sad how the truly fun times seem to last only a moment."
  • After being defeated
"You must never forget there is a place where everyone can shine. That goes for any kind of Pokémon, too. Spread that message in your own words. It's one everyone should hear. And now, having lost, this lady has nothing left to say at all, but... Bye-bye!"
