Erica (Japanese: エリコ Eriko) is a Pokémon Coordinator and a recurring character who appeared in the anime.


Erica debuted in Mean With Envy. She and her boyfriend Joshua were training together for the Pacifidlog Town Contest. Erica hoped that she and Joshua would be the first couple to become winners in the Contest.

Much to Erica's chagrin, May began training with Joshua. They were only doing so as friends, but Erica refused to believe May's story. She was convinced that May was going to steal Joshua away from her.

During the Contest in Pacifidlog Jam, Joshua faced off against May in the Contest Battles. Erica hoped that Joshua would defeat her, but she was stunned when May ended up defeating him. Now more than ever, Erica wanted to defeat May. However, when May defeated Erica, the Coordinator had a change of heart. She told May that she was jealous of her, and that she shouldn't have been.

She and Joshua both had cameos in Deceit and Assist, where they were watching May on TV during the Hoenn Grand Festival.


Erica was immediately jealous of May after spotting her talking with her boyfriend Joshua. However, despite May and Joshua's reassurances of otherwise, Erica remained jealous and set on capturing Joshua's attention. During the Contest, Erica hoped that she and Joshua would be the ones to win the event and share the Ribbon. However, her dreams were shattered when May defeated Joshua and advanced to the final round. Erica later had a change of heart after Joshua revealed his feelings on the jealousy, and she gained a respect of May.


Erica's Jynx
Erica's Jynx was first seen in Mean With Envy where her owner was trying to show her off, to show that Jynx was much more cuter than May's Skitty to Joshua. She was used when Team Rocket tried to steal Ash's Pikachu and Snorunt and with the help of Ash, his friends and Joshua, they were able to send Team Rocket blasting off.

She was used Jynx in the Pacifidlog Town Contest in the Appeals round. After getting through to the second round along with May and Joshua, she went up against the Jester and Meowth in Pacifidlog Jam, and proceeded to the next round because Jessie was disqualified for cheating. In the finals, Jynx battled May and her Skitty and lost, earning May her fifth Ribbon.

Jynx's known moves are Hyper Beam, Blizzard, Psychic, and Lovely Kiss.
