For the Supporter card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game, see Twins.

Twins (Japanese: ふたごちゃん Twins) are a pair of Pokémon Trainers that first debuted in the Generation II games. They are two identical young girls. In Generation II, they fought in regular battles. In Generation III and beyond, they fight in double battles.

They use Pokémon that complement each other, such as Plusle and Minun or Ledyba and Spinarak, or two Pokémon of the same species, such as a pair of Clefairy or a pair of Pachirisu.

  • Because of how battle messages are formatted in the Generation II games, a grammatical error occurs where the game says "TWINS [NAME]&[NAME] wants to battle!" and "TWINS [NAME]&[NAME] was defeated."
  • Even though the twins don't fight in double battles in Generation II, they still have two Pokémon that are very similar or complete counterparts like in future generations.
  • In Pokémon Crystal, the pre- and post-battle text of Twins Lia & Pia erroneously leave off their names, making it unsure of which twin is which. The same carried over for their Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver counterparts: Kay and Tia.
    • However, this is not necessarily a mistake, because Kay and Tia ask the player to guess which one is Tia and which is Kay before the battle, and saying which one is it after being defeated.
