Holly (Japanese: ホノカ Honoka) is a minor recurring character in the Pokémon anime. She first appeared in Tag! We're It! as Brock's Tag Battle partner.


Holly partook in the Hearthome City Tag Battle Competition. Using a number system, she had the number 21 and went to Brock as he had the number 16 and the two numbers were paired with each other. Due to that, Holly and Brock became partners. Sometime after that and Dawn's and Conway's first battle in the tournament, Holly battled with two Trainers who owned a Yanma and Bagon. Holly managed to stay in the lead with the help of Brock and as a result, their opponents ended up fighting with each other, causing Holly and Brock to win. She then watched Ash's and Paul's battle with two Trainers and their Rhydon and Magmar, and continued to do so from this point on with the other battles.

In Glory Blaze, Holly was shown to have jealousy towards Brock when he flirted with Nurse Joy. However, she became proud of Brock when he treated an injured Chimchar. When Paul was telling the story on how he first met Chimchar, Holly listened in. The next day, she battled a Furret and Hitmonchan in the second round and won rather quickly. In Smells Like Team Spirit!, she battled Ash and Paul and despite Ash and Paul fighting with each other, Holly lost the battle. Due to the loss, Holly felt bad and mentioned that it was her fault that it happened. At the Pokémon Center, Brock found out that Holly left without saying goodbye but Nurse Joy informed him that she left in order to train more and to become a better partner for Brock.


At first, Holly did not show any interest in Brock, saying that she had no interest in "younger men," but after battling together with him she formed an attraction to him, impressed by his battling skills. Later, in Glory Blaze, she seemed jealous that he was flirting with Nurse Joy. Later on, she was seen to have "heart-eyes" while watching Brock battle.

After Holly and Brock lost the battle against Ash and Paul, she couldn't help but feel responsible for the loss. Afterwards, she left without saying goodbye to him. Nurse Joy told Brock that she wanted to train more, so that she could become a better partner for Brock.
