Bertha (Japanese: キクノ Kikuno) is a master Template:Type2 Trainer and member of the Sinnoh Elite Four. Some fans believe that Bertha may be related to Agatha, another elderly woman who looks similar, particularly in hairstyle, and has a similar name in both English and Japanese.

In the games

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, Bertha is the second member of the Sinnoh Elite Four.

Before battle:
"Well, well. You're quite the adorable Trainer, but you've also got a spine. Ahaha! I'm Bertha. I have a preference for Ground-type Pokémon. Well, would you show this old lady how much you've learned?"

During battle:
"Dear child, don't assume for an instant that you've won."

When defeated:
"Well! Dear child, I must say, that was most impressive. Your Pokémon believed in you and did their best to earn you the win. Even though I've lost, I find myself with this silly grin!"

After battle:
"You're quite something, youngster. I like how you and your Pokémon earned the win by working as one. That's what makes you so strong. Ahahaha! I think that you can go as far as you want."

Last words:
"The Trainer in the next room is a much more formidable opponent. You really must have your wits about you. However, I think you can go as far as you desire. Ahahaha!"

In the anime

She, along with Cynthia, the champion of the Elite Four, was mentioned in An Elite Meet and Greet! by Lucian and by Officer Jenny in A Trainer and Child Reunion!.


  • Due to her resemblance to Agatha of the Kanto Elite Four in both position and name (both English and Japanese), the two are theorized by some to be related.
