Mina (Japanese: マツリカ Matsurika) is the Trial Captain of Poni Island. She specializes in Fairy-type Pokémon.

In the games

Mina is an aspiring artist who started painting at an early age. She is acquainted with Ilima.

The player first meets Mina while navigating the Vast Poni Canyon. Mina is seen surveying the landscape when she notices the player and introduces herself as a captain. However, because she spends so much time dedicated to her art, she doesn't have an actual trial prepared for the player. Instead, she gives the player a Fairium Z. She muses on what she could make her trial about before bidding the player farewell.

Later on, Mina can be encountered after the main story during the third Ultra Beast hunt mission. She was sent by someone to relay the information about UB-03's appearances in Akala Island and to battle the player as a trial of strength. After being defeated, Mina will bid the player farewell and then leaves.

Mina can also be encountered once more in Poni Gauntlet, where she says she was just done doing a hundred sketches and is resting. Because she has defeated all of the trainers in the area, Mina is bored and has nothing else to do. She challenges the player to beat all of the trainers in Poni Gauntlet if they want to challenge her again. If the player succeeds in defeating all of the trainers and Mina herself, she will award them with a Bottle Cap.

Pokémon

Mina can be battled in either order, and her team is near-identical in both, but she only uses her Z-Ring in the Poni Gauntlet battle. Mina's Pokémon are kept in Ultra Balls.
