Caroline (Japanese: ミツコ Mitsuko) is the mother of May and Max, and wife of Norman.


Caroline is May's biggest supporter, and traveled all the way to the Hoenn Grand Festival to support her daughter in her contests.

For a while, Caroline was mad at her husband because he wasn't spending enough time with her and too much time with Nurse Joy. As it turns out, Nurse Joy was helping Norman set up a fireworks display for his and Caroline's anniversary.

She is probably a Pokémon Trainer, as in a flashback she is seen holding a Poké Ball, but what she trained remains a mystery.

  • When May went to Kanto, she left Beautifly and Skitty in the care of her parents. However, when May traveled to Sinnoh for the Wallace Cup, Beautifly had rejoined May's team. Skitty also appeared during May's campaign in the Wallace Cup, but it is unknown if Skitty had also rejoined May's team or was just sent temporarily.
