From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
|| 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: リンカ Rinka) and (Japanese: ケンイチ Kenichi) are characters of the day who appeared in SM113.
Rinka and Kenichi are production assistants working for Alola TV under George Charino. As George was at a television set talking to Ash and his classmates, Rinka and Kenichi came up to him and informed him that the lead actors of the television show (Japanese: サンサン三人はアローラドリンキュン The Sparkling Trio is Alola DrinKyun) would not make it to the studio because their plane from Sinnoh had been caught in a blizzard. The two then panicked and asked George for advice on how to make sure the program would still air. George then decided to cast Lana, Lillie, and Mallow for one episode.
- Rinka and Kenichi are named and designed after their voice actors, Rinka Ōtani and Hyadain (whose real name is Kenichi Maeyamada), who are two of the co-hosts of Meet Up at the Pokémon House?.
- Rinka's design is specifically modeled after her first-ever outfit on Pokénchi.
