Rhonda (Japanese: ユウカ Yūka) is the host of a television program called Sinnoh Now.


She appeared in The Champ Twins!, All Dressed Up With Somewhere To Go!, A Secret Sphere of Influence!, Top-Down Training in Mass Hip-Po-Sis!, Our Cup Runneth Over!, Pursuing a Lofty Goal!, and Beating the Bustle and Hustle! as a recurring character. She also makes a brief appearance in Losing Its Lustrous, reporting Team Galactic's theft of the Adamant Orb. Rhonda seems to be a very dedicated and determined reporter, going to lengths to get her story, but hates having to do one of her crewman's work if they can't do it themselves, confirmed in Mass Hip-Po-Sis. An example was in Our Cup Runneth Over!, where she hid in the bushes with her crew so she could keep an eye on Wallace. Unfortunately for Rhonda, the camera had run out of batteries so she could not cover the story. Rhonda later appeared in Beating the Bustle and Hustle! to cover the auditions for Sinnoh Pokémon Hustle that were being held near Lake Acuity, not realizing it was actually a Team Rocket scheme to steal all the participants Pokémon. She then made a brief appearance in Double-Time Battle Training! when Ash and Brock saw her on TV interviewing Paul outside Canalave Gym after he had won his eighth and final Sinnoh League Badge.

Rhonda reappeared in the Grand Festival arc where she was covering the Grand Festival.

She made a cameo in the credits of Zoroark: Master of Illusions reporting the events at Crown City.
