Detective Pikachu

Meiko first appears with her coworker Emilia Christie in Litwick Cave. At their boss's suggestion, the two are visiting the cave to get footage for a story encouraging people to visit it; it's a family-oriented tourist spot, but lately it has become popular as a date spot for couples. However, during filming, a wild Glalie suddenly goes berserk and starts attacking everything in the vicinity. Emilia injures her leg while trying to get away from it and Meiko doesn't want to abandon her. Fortunately, Tim Goodman and Detective Pikachu show up in the nick of time and manage to drive Glalie away. Unfortunately, Glalie's attack caused the entrance of the cave to collapse, so they need to find another way out. Thanks to the footage that Meiko shot, they discover that there's a wild Drifblim living in the cave, so Tim and Pikachu head off to find it. With Drifblim's help, Meiko and the others manage to get out of the cave.

Meiko appears again in Chapter 3, being invited to PCL by Dorothy Fisher to shoot a special feature for a news program themed around "The Cutting Edge of Pokemon Research". Emilia and Tim are feeding the laboratory's Trevenant prior to the shoot when suddenly, Trevenant goes berserk. Everyone gets out of the courtyard safely, but Trevanant does a lot of damage to the things in the courtyard. Wallace Carroll blames Tim for Trevenant's rampage and tries to fire him, but Meiko and Emilia stick up for him and say that Tim would never hurt a Pokémon. After watching through the footage that Meiko took, the PCL staff agree that Tim didn't do anything to provoke Trevenant.

Meiko has several entries in Tim's case list:

Case List Entry
Important info She is a director at GNN. She is apparently Emilia's senior. She always seems to be enjoying her work.
Chapter 2 She apparently has more seniority than Emilia. She works at a television station called GNN.
Chapter 3 She's as energetic as always. She's focused on getting ready to film. Thanks to Meiko's video we proved our innocence.

Personality and characteristics

Meiko and Emilia do pretty much all their work together, from planning to filming. Occasionally, they have requests for content from their superiors, but generally they have the freedom to do what they want.

Meiko is a very energetic person, and she gets especially excited whenever her footage is able to help in Tim's investigations.
