Solana in Pokémon Ranger - the Comic

Solana appears in the Pokémon Ranger - the Comic manga, which was posted on the Pokémon Japanese website to follow with the Pokémon Ranger's game release in April 2006, Solana became a Ranger before Lunick did. Solana had taught a lot of things to Lunick involving becoming a Pokémon Ranger in the past. Now both of them are Rank 10 Rangers.

She often prepares to her best ability before she starts something. Even during her spare time she would try to read as many documents and information as possible about any upcoming mission given to them.

Language Name Origin
Japanese ヒナタ Hinata From 日 (hi), sun. Also means "sunny place". A common Japanese surname.
English, French, German, Italian Solana From words derivative of sol, Latin for "sun".
Spanish Selena From Selene, a Greek lunar deity.
Korean 희정 Hyijeong
Chinese (Taiwan) 日向 Rìxiàng From Japanese 日向 hinata, Literally "Sun direction".


  • Solana's Spanish name is a reference to the moon, rather than the sun like all her other names. This is most likely due to the fact that the deity after which she is named sounds similar to her English name. Lunick's Spanish name is likewise a reference to the sun.
  • The Pokémon Ranger 4 Piece Collector Pin Set at PokemonCenter.com calls Solana Hiromi, possibly indicating a name from before "Hinata" was finalized.
