'''Ursula''' (Japanese: '''ウララ''' ''Urara'') is a [[rival]] of {{an|Dawn}} and [[Jessie]]'s who first appeared in ''[[DP114|Another One Gabites the Dust!]]''.
+
'''Ursula''' (Japanese: '''ウララ''' ''Urara'') is a recurring character who appeared in the [[Pokémon anime]]. She is a [[Pokémon Coordinator]] and a [[rival]] of both {{an|Dawn}} and [[Jessie|Jessilina]].
   
== History ==
+
==History==
She is a {{pkmn|Coordinator}} from the Sinnoh region who entered the {{to|Chocovine}} {{pkmn|Contest}} at the same time as Dawn, first meeting her just outside the [[Contest Hall]] when her {{p|Gabite}} got into a confrontation with [[Dawn's Pachirisu]]. Ursula offered one of her own [[Poffins]] to Pachirisu to replace the one Gabite had stepped on, but Pachirisu refused it, causing Ursula to take offense.
+
[[File:Ursula Wallace Cup.png|thumb|left|220px|Ursula in the Wallace Cup]]
  +
Ursula debuted in ''[[DP114|Another One Gabites the Dust!]]'', where it was revealed that she was one of the [[Wallace Cup]] competitors who were eliminated in the first round. When she recognized {{an|Dawn}}, she said it was an accident Dawn won the {{DL|Ribbon|Aqua Ribbon}} and she was looking forward to seeing Dawn's graceful moves at the [[Chocovine Town]] [[Pokémon Contest]]. Later, she was seen using her [[List of Pokémon with form differences|Sandy Cloak]] {{p|Wormadam}} to perform a routine that ensured her progression to the second stage, where she used her {{TP|Ursula|Gabite}}.
   
It was revealed that she had entered the [[Wallace Cup]] that took place at [[Valor Lakefront]], but was knocked out in the first round. She revealed that, like Dawn, she had been knocked out several times in the first round, and so improved herself so that she could become a better Coordinator. Prior to meeting Dawn, she had won three Ribbons, the same that Dawn had at that time. Believing Dawn's win in the Wallace Cup to be a fluke, and due to the fact that the two were simultaneously going for their fourth [[Ribbon]], she developed a rivalry with her.
+
During the [[Contest Battle]]s, Ursula was paired up against [[Jessie|Jessilina]] in the semifinals. At one point, Ursula's Gabite and Jessilina's {{TP|James|Carnivine}} seemed to be evenly matched, but when time ran out, [[Marian]] announced that the {{pkmn|Coordinator}} advancing to the final round was Ursula. In the finals, Ursula posed a threat to Dawn as her Gabite had the upper hand for most of the battle against [[Dawn's Pachirisu]]. However, she found herself in trouble when Dawn fought back by commanding Pachirisu to block Gabite's attacks in unique ways, which ended up reducing Ursula's points considerably just as the clock was running down. As a result, she lost the battle, thinking that only the five-minute time limit prevented her from pulling off a win.
[[File:Ursula and Dawn.png|thumb|left|250px|Ursula and Dawn]]
 
Throughout the Chocovine Contest, she remained critical of Dawn's performance. She and Dawn met in the finals, having defeated [[Jessie]] and {{TP|James|Carnivine}} to do so. Ultimately, however, Ursula lost to Dawn, thinking that only the time limit prevented her from pulling off a win.
 
   
She reappeared in ''[[DP161|Yes, in Dee Dee It's Dawn!]]'' and ''[[DP162|Playing the Performance Encore!]]'', competing in the Contest in [[Daybreak Town]]. After gaining the upper hand in the final match of the Contest by using her {{p|Plusle}} and {{p|Minun}} effectively, she eventually lost to Dawn and thus the Contest as well. She obtained her fifth Ribbon prior to ''[[DP174|Last Call, First Round!]]'', where she was shown to have two new Pokémon: {{p|Eevee}}, both of which evolve into {{p|Vaporeon}} and {{p|Flareon}} as part of her appeal in the Grand Festival.
+
In ''[[DP161|Yes in Dee Dee, It's Dawn!]]'', Ursula was seen practicing with her {{p|Plusle}} and {{p|Minun}} for the [[Daybreak Town]] Pokémon Contest. After telling Dawn she also had won four Contest Ribbons, she introduced the two Cheering Pokémon she had trained specifically for a [[Double Performance]], causing Dawn to panic and make some rude remarks. When Dawn apologized, Ursula decided to show her the results of their {{pkmn|training}}. However, the static electricity produced by Plusle and Minun made Dawn's hair sparkle like a diamond, which ultimately led her to faint.
   
Ursula's unique appeal easily ensured her progression into the Top 32, where she discovered she would have to battle Dawn yet again. This time, Ursula used Gabite and Flareon against Dawn's {{TP|Dawn|Pachirisu}} and {{TP|Dawn|Mamoswine}}. During the battle, Ursula was able to create some good combinations (including a {{m|Sand Tomb}}-{{m|Scary Face}} combination move that caused Mamoswine to lose its confidence briefly). However her determination to defeat Dawn eventually caused her downfall as she allowed Gabite and Flareon to be struck by Dawn's newly improvised move ''Ice Chandelier'' which knocked them both out thereby eliminating Ursula from the tournament. 
+
Ursula was then seen overhearing the talk about the origin of Dawn's nickname, Dee Dee, and laughing to herself. At the start of the Daybreak Contest, she taunted Dawn with this story. Later on, she used Gabite and {{p|Jigglypuff}} to deliver a performance that received positive reviews from the [[Contest Judge]]s and secured her a place in the second round. In ''[[DP162|Playing the Performance Encore!]]'', Ursula faced off against Jessilina in the first match of the Battle Stage. Using her Plusle and Minun, she was able to defeat Jessilina's {{TP|Jessie|Yanmega}} and {{TP|Jessie|Seviper}}. After that, she won one more battle to reach the finals.
   
Before leaving [[Valor Lakefront]] Ursula bitterly told Dawn that, despite having lost against her three times, she still refused to believe her rival was the better coordinator and that one day she would manage to defeat her. 
+
[[File:Ursula and Dawn.png|thumb|250px|Ursula and Dawn]]
  +
When Ursula found out that Dawn was her next opponent, she commented on how boring it would be to battle her in the final round and taunted her once again, calling her by her nickname and saying she didn't stand a chance against Plusle and Minun. During the battle, she had the two {{type|Electric}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} using {{m|Spark}} multiple times, eventually making Dawn's hair stand on end and sparkle. Ursula was pleased to see Diamond Dandruff in person, but her mood suddenly changed when Dawn managed to get rid of {{m|Encore}} and perfect the Flame Ice [[Contest combination|combo]], lowering Ursula's points in the process. Ursula tried to fight back, but time ran out and Dawn was declared the winner.
   
She made a brief appearance in ''[[DP177|A Grand Fight for Winning!]]'' watching Dawn and [[Zoey]] compete in the finals.
+
In ''[[DP174|Last Call First Round!]]'', Ursula attended the Coordinator Meet and Greet for the [[Sinnoh Grand Festival]]. There, she approached Dawn and said she was counting on her to look good that day. Later, she was seen performing on the Blue Stage with her two {{p|Eevee}}. As part of her performance, she threw a [[Water Stone]] and a [[Fire Stone]] at each, causing them to evolve into {{p|Vaporeon}} and {{p|Flareon}}. Ursula's unique [[appeal]] easily placed her among the 32 Coordinators advancing to the Contest Battles, and in ''[[DP175|Opposites Interact!]]'', she discovered she had been matched up against Dawn yet again.
   
Ursula had a cameo appearance in ''[[M13|Zoroark: Master of Illusions]]''.
+
Using her Gabite and Flareon against Dawn's Pachirisu and {{TP|Dawn|Mamoswine}}, Ursula proved to be a very tough opponent as she was able to take away nearly all of Dawn's points by delivering one successful attack after another and displaying some fierce combinations. However, her overconfidence ended up providing an opening for Dawn to use her newest custom-made move, Ice Chandelier, which knocked out Gabite and Flareon at once and prompted the judges to rule {{DL|Fainting|Battle Off}} for Ursula's Pokémon, thereby eliminating Ursula from the [[Grand Festival]]. She made a brief appearance in ''[[DP177|A Grand Fight for Winning!]]'', watching Dawn and [[Zoey]] compete in the finals.

==Character==
 
==Character==
Ursula has the tendency of being too sure of herself, as evidenced in most of her battles with Dawn. She would usually make up excuses regarding her losses that it wasn't her fault. She is also sly and cunning, as evidenced in when she uses Plusle and Minun to hinder Dawn.
+
[[File:Ursula.png|thumb|250px|Ursula being overconfident]]
  +
Like {{an|Dawn}}, Ursula has been eliminated several times in the [[Appeal|Performance Stage]]. For this reason, she started working hard so that she could become a better {{pkmn|Coordinator}}. Prior to meeting Dawn, she had won three {{pkmn|Contest}} [[Ribbon]]s, the same that Dawn had at that time. Believing Dawn's win in the [[Wallace Cup]] to be a fluke, and due to the fact that the two were simultaneously going for their fourth Ribbon, she developed an unfriendly [[rival]]ry with her.
  +
  +
Ursula has the tendency of being too sure of herself, as evidenced in most of her [[Contest Battle|battles]]. Despite her arrogance, she is shown to care for her Pokémon and treat them well. Whenever she loses a battle, she makes excuses to diminish her faults. She may also take offense to small things, as seen in her [[DP114|debut episode]] when [[Dawn's Pachirisu]] refused one of her [[Poffin]]s.
  +
  +
Her overall battling style is about incapacitating her opponent's Pokémon to prevent them from retaliating, showing off their [[appeal]] or escaping her consecutive attacks. When giving commands to her Pokémon, she usually makes signs with her arms crossed. This trait was noticed by [[Jessie|Jessilina]], who became inspired to make something similar during her performances.

Ursula (Japanese: ウララ Urara) is a recurring character who appeared in the Pokémon anime. She is a Pokémon Coordinator and a rival of both Dawn and Jessilina.

History

Ursula in the Wallace Cup

Ursula debuted in Another One Gabites the Dust!, where it was revealed that she was one of the Wallace Cup competitors who were eliminated in the first round. When she recognized Dawn, she said it was an accident Dawn won the Aqua Ribbon and she was looking forward to seeing Dawn's graceful moves at the Chocovine Town Pokémon Contest. Later, she was seen using her Sandy Cloak Wormadam to perform a routine that ensured her progression to the second stage, where she used her Gabite.

During the Contest Battles, Ursula was paired up against Jessilina in the semifinals. At one point, Ursula's Gabite and Jessilina's Carnivine seemed to be evenly matched, but when time ran out, Marian announced that the Coordinator advancing to the final round was Ursula. In the finals, Ursula posed a threat to Dawn as her Gabite had the upper hand for most of the battle against Dawn's Pachirisu. However, she found herself in trouble when Dawn fought back by commanding Pachirisu to block Gabite's attacks in unique ways, which ended up reducing Ursula's points considerably just as the clock was running down. As a result, she lost the battle, thinking that only the five-minute time limit prevented her from pulling off a win.

In Yes in Dee Dee, It's Dawn!, Ursula was seen practicing with her Plusle and Minun for the Daybreak Town Pokémon Contest. After telling Dawn she also had won four Contest Ribbons, she introduced the two Cheering Pokémon she had trained specifically for a Double Performance, causing Dawn to panic and make some rude remarks. When Dawn apologized, Ursula decided to show her the results of their training. However, the static electricity produced by Plusle and Minun made Dawn's hair sparkle like a diamond, which ultimately led her to faint.

Ursula was then seen overhearing the talk about the origin of Dawn's nickname, Dee Dee, and laughing to herself. At the start of the Daybreak Contest, she taunted Dawn with this story. Later on, she used Gabite and Jigglypuff to deliver a performance that received positive reviews from the Contest Judges and secured her a place in the second round. In Playing the Performance Encore!, Ursula faced off against Jessilina in the first match of the Battle Stage. Using her Plusle and Minun, she was able to defeat Jessilina's Yanmega and Seviper. After that, she won one more battle to reach the finals.

Ursula and Dawn

When Ursula found out that Dawn was her next opponent, she commented on how boring it would be to battle her in the final round and taunted her once again, calling her by her nickname and saying she didn't stand a chance against Plusle and Minun. During the battle, she had the two Electric-type Pokémon using Spark multiple times, eventually making Dawn's hair stand on end and sparkle. Ursula was pleased to see Diamond Dandruff in person, but her mood suddenly changed when Dawn managed to get rid of Encore and perfect the Flame Ice combo, lowering Ursula's points in the process. Ursula tried to fight back, but time ran out and Dawn was declared the winner.

In Last Call — First Round!, Ursula attended the Coordinator Meet and Greet for the Sinnoh Grand Festival. There, she approached Dawn and said she was counting on her to look good that day. Later, she was seen performing on the Blue Stage with her two Eevee. As part of her performance, she threw a Water Stone and a Fire Stone at each, causing them to evolve into Vaporeon and Flareon. Ursula's unique appeal easily placed her among the 32 Coordinators advancing to the Contest Battles, and in Opposites Interact!, she discovered she had been matched up against Dawn yet again.

Using her Gabite and Flareon against Dawn's Pachirisu and Mamoswine, Ursula proved to be a very tough opponent as she was able to take away nearly all of Dawn's points by delivering one successful attack after another and displaying some fierce combinations. However, her overconfidence ended up providing an opening for Dawn to use her newest custom-made move, Ice Chandelier, which knocked out Gabite and Flareon at once and prompted the judges to rule Battle Off for Ursula's Pokémon, thereby eliminating Ursula from the Grand Festival. She made a brief appearance in A Grand Fight for Winning!, watching Dawn and Zoey compete in the finals.

Ursula made a cameo appearance in the ending credits of Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

Character

Ursula being overconfident

Like Dawn, Ursula has been eliminated several times in the Performance Stage. For this reason, she started working hard so that she could become a better Coordinator. Prior to meeting Dawn, she had won three Contest Ribbons, the same that Dawn had at that time. Believing Dawn's win in the Wallace Cup to be a fluke, and due to the fact that the two were simultaneously going for their fourth Ribbon, she developed an unfriendly rivalry with her.

Ursula has the tendency of being too sure of herself, as evidenced in most of her battles. Despite her arrogance, she is shown to care for her Pokémon and treat them well. Whenever she loses a battle, she makes excuses to diminish her faults. She may also take offense to small things, as seen in her debut episode when Dawn's Pachirisu refused one of her Poffins.

Her overall battling style is about incapacitating her opponent's Pokémon to prevent them from retaliating, showing off their appeal or escaping her consecutive attacks. When giving commands to her Pokémon, she usually makes signs with her arms crossed. This trait was noticed by Jessilina, who became inspired to make something similar during her performances.
