The assistants
Professor Ivy's assistants, also known collectively as the triplets (Japanese: ウチキド博士の助手の三つ子 Dr. Uchikido's triplet assisants) are three women who live with Professor Ivy on Valencia Island and help with her research work. Their individual names are Charity (Japanese: ミナミ Minami), Hope (Japanese: ツナミ Tsunami) and Faith (Japanese: コナミ Konami). Their individual English names were mentioned only in Tracey West's anime novelisations. They appeared in Poké Ball Peril. Charity's Japanese voice actor is 大谷育江 Ikue Ohtani, Hope's Japanese voice actor is かないみか Mika Kanai, and Faith's Japanese voice actor is こおろぎさとみ Satomi Kōrogi. In English, they are all played by Kayzie Rogers.

Though they are useful as research assistance, the three women are not particularly good at domestic duties. Their need for someone to handle the cooking and cleaning around the house reminded Brock of his family, which is one reason why he stayed behind as an assistant for Professor Ivy instead of traveling with Ash through the Orange Islands.

Their English names are references to the three Theological virtues, which is one of very few religious references in Pokémon series.
