Jasmine (Japanese: ミカン Mikan) is the Gym Leader of Olivine City's Gym, known officially as the Olivine Gym. Her specialty is Template:Type2 Pokémon, and she gives the Mineral Badge to Trainers who defeat her in battle. She also appears in Sinnoh to give trainers HM07 (Waterfall) and to compete in Sinnoh's Super Contests.

In the anime

Jasmine in the anime

Jasmine appears in Fight for the Light and Nerves of Steelix.

In the anime, Jasmine runs the Glitter Lighthouse in Olivine City. She used her Ampharos to light the way over the shore, but when it became ill, she asked Ash to fetch it some medicine from Cianwood City. Ash and his friends retrieved the medicine and sent it back with one of Jasmine's young apprentices, Janina.

Several weeks later, Ash and his friends returned from the Whirl Islands and Ash challenged Jasmine to a Gym battle. Ash used Cyndaquil and was able to defeat Jasmine's Steelix.

Compared to other media, where she is typically depicted as meek and soft-spoken, the anime version of Jasmine is markedly more confident, and even aggressive during Gym battles. She makes a powerful introduction, leaping from a cliff and gracefully landing on her Steelix. She is not afraid to take on Team Rocket, and is quite vocal in letting Ash know she won't go easy on him during battle.

In the games

Jasmine's title is "The Steel-Clad Defense Girl".

In Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, the player can't fight Jasmine right away, as she's busy taking care of a sick Ampharos. First one must get a special medicine from the pharmacy in Cianwood City and give it to her.

Jasmine trains the recently-discovered Template:Type2 Pokémon, but it's said that she recently used to train a different type. A Gentleman in the Lighthouse says she used to train Template:Type2 Pokémon, like Onix.

Jasmine is a very shy girl, and has trouble speaking. She's compassionate, and when Amphy, the Ampharos in the lighthouse tower, falls ill, Jasmine is so worried she cannot even smile. Amphy and Jasmine appear to be close, because when the medicine is brought from Cianwood City, Amphy will only take it from her.

The Olivine City Gym is probably the most simply designed Pokémon Gym in Johto. It consists of just one straight, fairly short walkway, outlined with boulders, leading up to a small set of steps onto a raised stone platform. For this reason, and possibly due somewhat to Jasmine's shy nature, she appears to be the only member of her gym.

In addition to the Mineral Badge, Jasmine gives out TM23 (Iron Tail).

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, Jasmine is staying in Sunyshore City for a while, which she says reminds her of home with its lighthouse and its location on the sea. She also occasionally enters Super Contests with her Steelix, which is nicknamed Rusty (Japanese: ネール Neil).

She gives the player HM07 (Waterfall) after defeating the eighth Gym Leader, Volkner.

Quotes

Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal

"Thank you for your help at the Lighthouse... But this is different. Please allow me to introduce myself. I'm Jasmine, a Gym Leader. I use the Steel-type. ...Do you know about the Steel-type? It's a type that was only recently discovered. ...Um... May I begin?"

"...You are a better trainer than me, in both skill and kindness. In accordance with League rules, I confer upon you this Badge."

"Um... I don't know how to say this, but good luck..."

Pokémon Diamond/Pearl

"... This city makes me feel at home somehow. It's next to the sea, and there's a lighthouse. Oh, that's this town's Gym Badge. You must be very good. ...Er...um... P-please, take this, too."

"...Um... I... I don't know how I should say this, but good luck."

In the Pokémon Special manga

Jasmine was caught in an Earthquake caused by Team Rocket while traveling through Ecruteak City. She had climbed the Tin Tower to get away from the shaking and got caught in some rubble. Using Ampharos to send off a distress flare, she caught the attention of both Gold and Silver. The two boys actually fought over who would get to rescue her, and she only barely managed to escape, leaving the young rivals trapped in the tower.

Jasmine later managed to recover. At the Pokémon League Tournament, she fought against Brock. She covered her Steelix in rubble to make it look like an Onix, thinking that the newly-discovered Steel Pokémon would be too horrifying for people to see.

Jasmine once specialized in Template:Type2 Pokémon before Crystal and Professor Oak discovered Steel-type Pokémon.

Jasmine's two Togetic are the parents of Gold's Togepi.
