Lyra (Japanese: コトネ Kotone) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime who debuted in An Egg Scramble!.


Ash and his friends first met Lyra when her Marill wandered off and they found it wedged in between two buildings. She introduced herself as a Trainer from Johto. She came to Sinnoh with her friend, Khoury and his father in order to observe the Pokémon native to the region. Later she asks Dawn to participate in the Johto Festival. The two girls had a battle but Lyra lost and rewarded Dawn with an egg. At the end of the episode, Lyra and Khoury joined Ash's group because the former wanted to watch the upcoming Lilypad Contest Dawn would be participating in.

It is implied in Gone With the Windworks! that Lyra has an interest in Ash. She admires his bravery and wishes that Khoury would act more like him. Lyra even asks Dawn if she and Ash are a couple though Dawn quickly denies it. In A Rivalry to Gible On!, she attempted to pair Khoury and Dawn together as a couple, despite Dawn's refusal, before eventually realizing she had feelings for the former.

In Bagged Then Tagged!, she and Khoury had a tag battle against Ash and Dawn in the Lilypad Colosseum. Both Lyra and Khoury eventually lost the battle.

Later they headed back to Johto with Khoury's father. Lyra plans on challenging Whitney and Morty. Also, upon her request, Khoury decided to become her traveling buddy. They promised Ash and Dawn that they would see them again.


This listing is of Lyra's known Pokémon:

Lyra's Marill
Marill is one of Lyra's main Pokémon and appears to be very affectionate towards her. Marill first appeared in An Egg Scramble! and it was because of Marill that Ash and his friends met Lyra, as they helped it when it was trapped between two buildings near where the Johto Festival was taking place. In Gone With the Windworks!, Marill was responsible for the gang getting trapped in the Valley Windworks when it wandered off during a practice battle between Ash and Dawn.

Marill also appeared in A Rivalry to Gible On! where its sensitive hearing helped the gang search for a Gible that was causing trouble near a Pokémon Center.

Marill's only known move is Water Gun.

Chikorita's next appearance was in Bagged Then Tagged! where it was used in a tag battle alongside Khoury's Totodile against Ash's Monferno and Dawn's Cyndaquil. Although Chikorita was weak against both Fire-types, it still put up a good fight but was defeated by Cyndaquil's Flame Wheel.
