Macy (Japanese: モエ Moe) is a Pokémon Trainer from Mahogany Town who entered the Silver Conference.


She first appeared in Love, Pokémon Style. Macy is a Fire-type enthusiast and owns at least three. She developed a crush on Ash when he saved her from injury when her Vulpix was stolen by Team Rocket, and it only grew when he returned it. She later faced Ash in the preliminary rounds of the Silver Conference, where she proved to be skilled at deflecting her type preference's weakness to Water-types. She lost to Ash when Squirtle defeated her Electabuzz and Quilava. After the battle Macy's Slugma had evolved into Magcargo, which Macy thought was a sign of the friendship between her and Ash.

Macy also appeared at the beginning of Tie One On! where she faced Jackson in the second match of the preliminary round. She won the match with the help of her Quilava, but due to Ash's draw with Jackson, she was eliminated from competing further. Her next appearances were cameos during Ash's battle with Gary where she cheered Ash on.


This listing is of Macy's known Pokémon in the anime:

Macy's Vulpix
Macy's Vulpix is often seen at her side, but has not been seen in battle. It appeared when Team Rocket captured it but in the end Ash was able to save it.

Macy's Magcargo first appeared as a Slugma. It was first seen when it was sent out to fight Ash's Totodile, but was soon recalled. It was brought out again to battle against Ash's Phanpy. It was beaten by Phanpy's Take Down. It was shown to have evolved thanks to the training it got during Macy's match with Ash. It was later used during Macy's battle with Jackson. However, its battle took place off-screen.

Macy's Quilava
Quilava was Macy's third and final Pokémon used against Ash. It was first sent out to fight Ash's Phanpy. Despite its type disadvantage, it took out the Ground-type Pokémon. After this victory, it was recalled, but was sent back out to fight Ash's Squirtle. After a long fight, Quilava was knocked out by a Hydro Pump.

Quilava was later seen during Macy's battle against Jackson, facing his Poliwhirl. As Jackson tripped to his cape while trying to give an attack order, Quilava was able to defeat the Tadpole Pokémon, winning the battle for Macy.

Quilava's known moves are Flame Wheel, Quick Attack, Swift and Flamethrower.

Macy's Electabuzz
Electabuzz was Macy's second Pokémon used against Ash. Macy used it to cover her team's glaring weakness to Water-type Pokémon. However, thanks to Brock's research on Macy's team, Ash had thought ahead and included his Phanpy. However, Electabuzz was quickly recalled and brought back out later on to fight Ash's Totodile. It defeated Totodile, but lost to Ash's Squirtle, despite the type advantage.

Electabuzz's known moves are Thunderbolt, Light Screen, ThunderPunch and Iron Tail.

  • Macy has similarities with another one of Ash's Johto rivals, Casey: in the English dub, their names sound strikingly similar; they share the same voice actress in English; and Macy owns an Electabuzz, which happens to be the mascot of Casey's favorite baseball team. It is also the evolved form of one of her own Pokémon.
  • Macy is one of the rare occasions a girl became attracted to Ash and even hoped to go on a date with him. Notably, she is the first girl to do so in the main series anime.
