Chuck's wife in the anime

Chuck's wife (Japanese: シジマの奥さん Shijima's wife) is the wife of the Cianwood City Gym Leader, Chuck. She first appeared in Pokémon Gold and Silver, and reappeared with the same role in Pokémon Crystal and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.

In the games

Chuck's wife would usually be found standing outside the Cianwood Gym in Cianwood City. She will give the player HM02 (Fly) after the player defeats her husband.

In the Generation IV remakes, she will walk up to the player when he/she defeats her husband. Also, as Chuck would be constantly training after his defeat, she will give out Chuck's number for a rematch instead of Chuck himself.


Cianwood City

  • Before battling Chuck
"You crossed the sea to get here? That must have been hard. It would be much easier if your Pokemon knew how to fly... But you can't use Fly without this city's Gym Badge. If you beat the Gym Leader, come see me. I'll have a nice gift for you."
  • After defeating Chuck
"That's Cianwood's Gym Badge! Then you should take this TM."
"Teach Fly to your Pokemon. You will be able to fly instantly to anywhere you have visited."
  • If talked to again
"My husband lost to you, so he needs to train harder. That's good, since he was getting a little chubby."

Pokégear Registering

"His only hobby is to battle tough Trainers. Do you want to have my husband's phone number?"
Yes: "He takes a break from the pounding waterfall on Wednesday nights. He should be able to chat with you then."
No: "Oh, I see. My husband won't be a good match?"
"Do you want to exchange your number for my husband's?"
