From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Maren (Japanese: ミチコ Michiko) is a minor supporting character who appeared in The Power of One.
Maren gave Ash, Misty, Tracey, and their Pokémon a ride around the Orange Islands. However, a storm blew them off-course, and they were forced to land at Shamouti Island.
While on the island, Maren was surprised to see her old friend Carol on the island. With her, she learned all about the Legendary Pokémon and the collecting of the spheres. She volunteered to help Ash on his journey to find them. Unfortunately, her boat crashed due to the severity of an abrupt storm and sustained serious damage on one of the islands. Thus, Maren spent the remainder of the movie watching over the boat.
She was last seen in the ending credits, leaving Shamouti Island with Ash and the others and waving Carol and the other residents goodbye.
Maren briefly reappeared in a montage in The Rise of Darkrai, which chronicled the preceding nine movies.
- Her English name may be a pun of mariner, a person who directs or assists in the navigation of a ship.
- The large lock of hair coming out from under her hat is similar to Ethan's design in the Generation II games.
