DJ Mary (Japanese: クルミ Kurumi) is a DJ in Goldenrod Radio Tower. She co-hosts the famous radio program, Professor Oak's Pokémon Talk, with Professor Oak.

In the games

Mary is a famous celebrity in both Johto and Kanto. Many people in Kanto go to Johto to hear Mary's show. She gives a Pink Bow as a prize to the player for defeating Team Rocket in the Radio Tower. Buena says Mary has a weight problem. Mary caught one Pokémon, Drowzee, but it was always making her drowsy, so she traded it to a fan for a Meowth.

Mary also hosts the Quiz in Pokémon Stadium 2.

Mary's first appearance was in Air Time. She was at the Goldenrod Radio Tower. Ash appeared on her show to talk about his Pokémon and his aspirations.

She also appeared in Will the Real Oak Please Stand Up?. She and Professor Oak were going to do a live show in Maroon Town. Team Rocket got wind of this and disguised themselves as the professor and Mary. With the help of Nurse Joy, a quiz show determined who was the real Oak and Mary.

Mary also appeared in Oaknapped! Professor Oak disappeared before taping a segment for her show, so she asked Officer Jenny, Ritchie and Tracey to help her find him. They eventually learned that he had been kidnapped by Butch and Cassidy.

Gold is a huge fan of hers.


This listing is for Mary's Pokémon in the Pokémon Adventures manga.

Smea-Smea was a Pokémon that belonged to Whitney. She gave it to DJ Mary prior to Gold's arrival. It was known for bothering him all the time when they first met which angered him. Gold chased after Smea-Smea with his Pokémon but it was too fast for them. He chased it all the way to Goldenrod's Radio Tower where he found out that it belonged to Whitney and DJ Mary. Smea-Smea appeared again along with Mary while Whitney was battling Suicune. It did not do much. Smea-Smea was also seen mimicking Entei's Flamethrower attack via Sketch.

Smea-Smea's only known move is Sketch.
Smea-Smea has also used Flamethrower* via Sketch.
