Dr. Anna

Dr. Anna (Japanese: アンナ Anna) is a character of the day in the Pokémon anime who appeared in Hassle In The Castle.

Dr. Anna runs a clinic, along with her assistant Keiko. Here, people with injuries are treated through the help of Pokémon. Among the many Pokémon at the clinic is her Zubat, named "Mimi", which she uses to X-ray her patients to find out what is wrong with them.

One day, Ash and his friends came along. Impressed of Mimi, Brock sent out his own Zubat. He asked Dr. Anna if she would be interested in letting him help out at the clinic. She said that Brock definitely could help her out.

After Team Rocket attacked, Brock sent out Zubat to stop them. During the battle, his Zubat evolved into Golbat. After it used Supersonic, Dr. Anna's machine, which she used to scan patients with, broke. After Team Rocket was sent blasting off, Dr. Anna told Brock that she couldn't have him helping her out, since Golbat's Supersonic was far too powerful. Heartbroken once again, Brock continued on with Ash and Misty.


This listing is of Dr. Anna's known Pokémon:

Anna has a Zubat nicknamed Mimi (Jp: ミミ Mimi) which she uses in her health clinic to use her Supersonic to examine the internal health of a patient. She is distinct from other Zubat by the green bow she wears. She first appeared helping a patient with her Supersonic. Ash, Misty and Brock arrived at that moment, and after seeing Mimi, Brock sent out his own Zubat to help. Whilst Team Rocket were caught stealing food, Brock, Dr. Anna and both of the Zubat hunted them down, but fell down a hole into a strange maze.

Anna ordered Mimi to use Supersonic which made full plan of the maze. The Zubat eventually found the exit. But before they got out, Team Rocket nabbed both Zubat, but the huge explosion caused by Brock's Pineco freed them and they were reunited with their Trainers.

Mimi's only known move is Supersonic.
