Blossom (Japanese: ツボミ Tsubomi) is a character who appeared in Blossom's Dream, the third episode of the POKÉTOON animated shorts.

Blossom in her youth

She is the daughter of two former Trainers. When she was younger, Blossom watched videos of her father competing in the Galar League in his youth, which inspired her to start a journey of her own and become a Champion. Her mother was not very supportive of this, however. Even so, Blossom bought a large amount of Poké Balls and Potions at the local Poké Mart and ventured into the wild to try and capture a Pokémon. Unfortunately, she proved unsuccessful in capturing several Pokémon.

Eventually, Blossom came across a Nidoran♂ and saved him from an Arbok. Just as she started to bond with Nidoran♂, his parents, a Nidoking and a Nidoqueen, showed up. The parents assumed Blossom meant harm to Nidoran♂ and chased her back to her hometown. The Nidoking and Nidoqueen were stopped from entering the town by a couple of local Trainers using their Pokémon. Meanwhile, Blossom rushed home to get her father's Charizard, Char-ly, to help out. Riding and commanding Char-ly, she was able to put a stop to the fight between Nidoran♂'s parents and the Trainers. Nidoran♂ had become attached to Blossom and chose to stay with her and leave his parents.

Blossom's parents were left impressed with her handling of Char-ly and her ability to stop a conflict. They allowed her to leave on a journey with Nidoran♂ and watched as she left town. At some point in their journey, Nidoran♂ evolved into Nidorino. In a forest, Blossom encountered a Gengar and sent out Nidorino to battle it, having become a capable Trainer of her own.

Blossom's Nidorino
Nidoran♂ → Nidorino
Nidoran♂ was originally a wild Pokémon living in a forest. One day, he met a young aspiring Trainer called Blossom. He was saved from an Arbok by Blossom, after which they bonded. Nidoran♂'s parents assumed Blossom meant harm, however, and chased them to Blossom's hometown. Although a fight broke out between Nidoran♂'s parents and a couple of local Trainers, Blossom eventually managed to settle the conflict. Having become attached to Blossom, Nidoran♂ chose to stay with her and leave his parents. Eventually, they set off on a journey together, and along the way, Nidoran♂ evolved into Nidorino. In a forest, Blossom sent him out to battle a Gengar.

None of Nidorino's moves are known.

Blossom's father's Char-ly
Char-ly (Japanese: ちょろび Chorobi) is Blossom's father's Charizard. When Blossom's father was younger, he used it to compete in the Galar League, but they were eventually defeated by a female Trainer and her Dragapult. This female Trainer would later on become Blossom's mother.

In the present, Char-ly lived with Blossom and her parents. It had grown old and mostly spent its days sleeping in the garden. When a fight broke out between a wild Nidoking and Nidoqueen and a couple of local Trainers, Blossom called upon Char-ly to help out. Riding and commanding Char-ly, Blossom managed to settle the conflict. Blossom's parents were impressed with her handling of Char-ly and allowed her to leave on a journey. Char-ly later watched as Blossom left town.

Char-ly's known moves are Flamethrower, Fly*, and Fire Blast.
