(Japanese: マキナ Makina) is the character of the day in DP173. She is voiced by 沖佳苗 Kanae Oki in Japanese.

Makina is a beginning Pokémon Trainer who owns two Ditto: one with regular coloration and one that has an alternate coloration. She also owns an orange-colored Pokédex.

Upon meeting Ash and his friends, Makina seems incredibly full of herself, calling Ash a newbie Trainer before proudly announcing that she has been a Trainer for one month. She additionally claims that she has no Badges because the Gym Leaders would run in fear of her Ditto. Also, when about to participate with her Ditto in a double battle against a Trainer's Cubone and Marowak, Makina had them both take the form of a passing Zapdos, causing the Trainer and his Pokémon to run in fear.

Despite this tough and confident façade, however, Makina is in actuality quite meek and self-conscious, as well as being a crybaby. She cosplays as Template:E4 of the Sinnoh Elite Four, whom she greatly admires, in order to help her feel more sure of herself.


Ditto #1
Ditto #1
Makina's first Ditto, nicknamed Ditto #1 (Japanese: メタモン1号 Metamon Ichigō) is of normal coloration, and first appeared to the gang when it transformed into Pikachu, Piplup, Gible and Togekiss and caused mischief until Makina turned up. Ditto was later used in battle against Pikachu, however despite being able to use Pikachu's powerful moves (like Iron Tail and Volt Tackle) it was easily defeated. Team Rocket later attempted to steal both Makina's Ditto, however they escaped and teamed up with Ash's Pikachu and sent Team Rocket blasting off with a triple-Thunderbolt.

As with all of its species, Ditto's only known move is Transform.

Makina also owns a shiny Ditto, nicknamed Ditto #2 (Japanese: メタモン2号 Metamon Nigō). After joining its regular counterpart in causing mischief, Ash battled the shiny Ditto with Infernape. In turn, Ditto transformed into an Infernape itself. After trading a series of Mach Punches, the round ended in Ash's favor. Later, the shiny Ditto helped Ash and company foil another Team Rocket scheme.

  • She is somewhat similar to Duplica, having two Ditto (with one of them being somewhat special) and cosplaying.
  • The Japanese names of Makina's Ditto are Ichigō (1号) and Nigō (2号), which means Number 1 and Number 2, respectively. Those names are most probably a reference to the classic 1971 Henshin Heroes series, Kamen Rider. Also, both in Kamen Rider and with Makina's Ditto, Nigō has a slightly different color scheme from Ichigō.
  • She, along with Wilhelmina, Temacu, Natalie, Lucy, Holly and Autumn, is one of the few girls to have shown some feelings for Brock. Makina, however, quickly gets over these feelings once she witnesses Brock falling in love with a passing Trainer and once again declares Template:E4 as the one she most admires.
  • Makina's orange Pokedex may be based on the limited edition 2006 The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass DS Lite
