Carrie (Japanese: オクル Okuru) is a little girl who appears in the Generation II games. She is a frequent visitor of the Goldenrod Department Store, and loves to use Mystery Gift with people, and when talked to, Mystery Gift will be unlocked. She appears in Pokémon Stadium 2 to Mystery Gift with the player through the Transfer Pak.

As with any user of Mystery Gift, she will appear in Viridian City's Trainer House if she was the last person the player used Mystery Gift with. Also, as with any character battled in the Trainer House, her sprite will appear as Ethan's Gold and Silver sprite (including in Crystal Version, which uses a different sprite for Ethan himself).

She will use one of three teams of six Pokémon each. There is no set pattern to which team she will use.

  • Battling Carrie is the only way to collect seen data in the Pokédex for Scizor and Porygon2 without obtaining them. She is also the only Trainer in the game to use Stantler, Heracross, and Gligar.
  • The items Carrie can send to the player via Mystery Gift are determined using the connected game's Trainer ID, which may give slightly different common and uncommon gifts, but always the same rare and super rare gifts the player is capable of giving others.
  • Despite having dialogue for receiving a Tentacool Doll, Unown Doll or Pikachu Bed from the player, Stadium 2's RNG function can never result in these gifts, leaving the lines effectively unused.
