Undubbed character This article is about a character featured in the Pokémon anime who has not yet debuted in the English language dub.
As such, their information may contain romanized Japanese names, rather than dub names.

(Japanese: ピカーラ Pikarla) is a character of the day who appeared in SM091. She is a Pokémon Trainer who lives in Pikachu Valley with all of her Pikachu.

Pikarla is a slightly eccentric woman who loves Pikachu. She even dresses up in a Pikachu outfit and ends all of her sentences with "Pika", referring to this manner of speech as "Pikanese". She also has the ability to know which region a Pikachu comes from by touching their fur.

Pikarla met Ash, Kiawe, and Mimo when they visited Pikachu Valley. She gave them Pikachu ears and tails to wear and called them (Japanese: サトピ Satopi), (Japanese: カピ Kapi), and (Japanese: ホピ Hopi), respectively. Later, when Team Rocket attempted to steal all of the Pikachu, Pikarla, with the help of her Shiny Pikachu, nicknamed Banchō, sent the trio blasting off using Catastropika.
