Cara Liss (Japanese: ウカッツ Ukattsu) is a mysterious researcher in the Galar region. She acts as the fossil reviver for Pokémon Sword and Shield.

In the games

Cara Liss can be found on Route 6 in Galar. She has a revival machine that can bring Fossil Pokémon that are found in Galar back to life. She explains to the player that the fossils in Galar are always found in halves. However, whichever top or bottom halves of a fossil the player finds, regardless to how they properly match, Cara Liss still revives the fossils into artificial hybrids.

Pokémon created

In the anime

Cara Liss appeared in A Pinch of This, a Pinch of That!, when Ash, Goh, and Chloe met her and her research partner Bray Zenn in the Wild Area. The group dug up some Fossils together, which were intended to be restored into a Dracozolt and Arctovish. However, Cara Liss and Bray Zenn mixed up their Fossilized Drake and Fossilized Dino, thus creating a Dracovish and an Arctozolt instead. After getting a satisfying amount of data out of the two Fossil Pokémon, the two researchers let Ash and Goh take the revived Pokémon with them.

Cara Liss was introduced as a Supporter card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game as one of the S-P Promotional cards, with artwork by Hitoshi Ariga, available in promotional packs awarded to Japanese participants of Pokémon Card Gym tournaments starting July 2020. It later debuted in English in the Vivid Voltage expansion.

Cara Liss allows the player to search their deck for up to two Rare Fossil cards and put them on their bench.


  • Cara Liss and the hybrid Pokémon she creates from fossils may be based on early paleontologists who would combine mismatched bones to produce new "discoveries", such as in the Bone Wars.
  • In the anime, it is suggested that the Pokédex entries for the four Pokémon Cara Liss can create are made up by her and others based on their theories of what the species were capable of.
