Belle & Pa (Japanese: ぼくじょうおやこ Farm Parent and Child) are a pair of Pokémon Trainers that debuted in the Generation IV games. They are a combination of a Rancher and Cowgirl, usually presented as father and daughter.
They raise a variety of different Pokémon used in Double Battles, usually being farmyard animals like Ponyta and Rapidash.
Belle and Pa first appear in Knowledge of the Unown I where they were working at the Pokémon News Press, with Pa being the editor-in-chief. Pa took a picture of Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum while trying to photograph Unown that were hovering over their heads to make a scoop of the discovery of a "previously undiscovered" species.
In Knowledge of the Unown II, they printed a comic starring the comedy duo Diamond and Pearl.
They make a cameo in Double Trouble with Dialga and Palkia V, battling a Steelix on Iron Island.
None of Gastrodon's moves are known.
