Ida (Japanese: イア Ia) is a recurring character who first appeared in Balloons, Brionne, and Belligerence!.


Ida and her boyfriend Kanoa belong to the Seafolk, a group of people who travel around the seas of the world. Kanoa is a treasure hunter, and despite his best efforts he had not been able to find any treasure yet. In order to make an income, Ida performed on the streets with her Brionne. While performing in Hau'oli City, she met up with Ash, Lana and Mallow. After seeing Ida and Brionne perform Hydro Vortex, Lana asked Ida to teach her how to use the Z-Move, as she had trouble executing it herself.

Ida agreed to tutor Lana and her Popplio and the training went on for days while Kanoa continued to search for treasure. Kanoa eventually discovered that a Mystic Water could be found in a sunken ship off the coast of Melemele Island. They all went to search for it, but found out the sunken ship was protected by a wild Dhelmise. Kanoa eventually retrieved it with the help of Lana, who had scared away the Dhelmise with her Popplio's newly-perfected Hydro Vortex. He later gave the Mystic Water to Ida as a necklace. Ida and Kanoa said their goodbyes to Ash, Lana and Mallow, with Ida promising to meet up with Lana again to see how much she has progressed. They then set off on their boat, on to their next destination.

In SM104, Lana revealed that she and Ida had been keeping in contact with each other by writing letters. Lana also referred to Ida as her master, and was revealed to have arranged a meeting with her at Seafolk Village to learn more from her.

She will appear again in SM106.


Ida is shown to be a talented musician in Balloons, Brionne, and Belligerence!, where she able to attract a large audience. When Lana approached her, asking to be her apprentice, Ida was taken aback but with encouragement from Kanoa, Ida agreed to do it. With Ida's teaching, Lana and Popplio were able to master Hydro Vortex. This led Ida and Lana to keep in touch, as revealed in SM104, where Lana was said to send Ida letters that Ida would always reply to. This friendship has led Lana to refer to Ida as her master.

Ida's Brionne
Brionne is Ida's only known Pokémon. It was first used as part of a show and used Hydro Vortex underneath Kanoa, who was standing on a surfboard. When Ida agreed to help Lana, Brionne set up three of its balloons so that Lana's Popplio can practice its own balloons, which kept popping on contact with Brionne's. Brionne later created a big balloon that allowed Kanoa to go underwater water so he could search for a Mystic Water meant for Ida.

Similar to Lana's Popplio, Brionne is able to make water balloons of varying size and color.

Brionne's only known move is Aqua Jet.
Brionne can also perform the Z-Move Hydro Vortex.
