From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Liza (Japanese: ジーク Sieg) is the caretaker of the Charicific Valley, which was made specifically as a natural paradise for wild Charizard.
Liza made her debut appearance in Charizard's Burning Ambitions. She knew of a Trainer's win at the Violet City Gym with a Charizard, and immediately deduced that Trainer was Ash. She invited them to come with her into the valley, encouraging Ash to ride his Charizard as transport, somewhat questioning why—as a Charizard Trainer—he's never flown upon his. She also questions the strength of Ash's Charizard, indicating only 'weak' Charizard display their power through Charizard's typical stream of fire, and that it needs some serious training.
Charizard wanted to train at the valley seeing the other powerful Charizard there but Liza refused after it lost to her Charizard, Charla. But seeing its determination to train there, she agreed.
Liza made a brief cameo appearance in Spell of the Unown with Charla and other Charizard from the Charicific Valley.
Liza later appeared in Great Bowls of Fire! bringing Ash's Charizard with her. It was revealed that she was good friends with Clair since they were young children. Liza often takes the Charizard from the Charicific Valley to Blackthorn City in order to train them.
Ash would also call Liza sometimes whenever he needed Charizard sent over.
This listing is of Liza's known Pokémon in the anime:
- She can identify Charizard Trainers by the lingering scent of their Charizard partner.
- She owns a balloon-basket used for errands and carrying people, that is pulled along by Charla's tail.
