Cherry (Japanese: チェリー Cherry) was the character of the day in The Psychic Sidekicks.

Her ultimate goal is to become a Psychic Pokémon Master. To prove her worth, she challenged Ash to a battle. Unfortunately, Pikachu caused her Girafarig to become paralyzed, and it fainted. However, Cherry was still determined to pursue her dream.

Not long afterwards, Team Rocket appeared, using a giant mechanical Gengar to swallow all the Psychic Pokémon in Len Town. Using her Girafarig's Future Sight, Cherry was able to see what moves Team Rocket was going to use. This allowed Ash to free the stolen Pokémon. Girafarig's Future Sight finished Team Rocket off.

Ash and his friends congratulated her on her victory. Cherry vowed that she and Girafarig would not give up on become the greatest Psychic Pokémon Trainer and team.


Cherry's Girafarig
Cherry's Girafarig is Cherry's only known Pokémon. It is a tradition in Len Town for the residents to have a Psychic type, because of the Ghost-type Pokémon in the nearby wood. It first appeared when Misty's Psyduck spotted its tail. It then came out of the bush with Cherry and they introduced themselves. After that, it was used in a battle with Pikachu, with the help of moves like Future Sight, it was nearly able to defeat Pikachu, but it fainted from Pikachu's Thunder.

Later when Team Rocket were stealing Psychic Pokémon with their giant Gengar mecha, it tried to use some Psychic moves, but they were deflected. Girafarig appeared to be very weak under dangerous circumstances, but ultimately used Future Sight to predict the future. With great teamwork, Pikachu was able to dodge Gengar's tongue, with Girafarig afterwards lifting Pikachu up with Confusion. Pikachu managed to free the stolen Pokémon, but Girafarig's Future Sight finished Team Rocket off. With this new victory Cherry vowed to make Girafarig stronger.

Girafarig's known moves are Future Sight, Stomp, Psybeam and Confusion.
