From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Daisy (Japanese: サクラ Sakura) is a recurring character who appeared in the Pokémon anime. She is a Water-type Pokémon specialist and is the oldest of Misty's sisters. She and her sisters, Violet and Lily, are also the former Gym Leaders of the Cerulean Gym.
In the anime
When Misty left to become a Water Pokémon Master, Daisy and her other two sisters were put in charge of the Gym. However, after Gary and the other two Trainers from Pallet Town defeated them consecutively, they decided to stop accepting battles and to instead perform water ballet shows for the residents of Cerulean City. They were continuing this and neglecting the Gym when Misty stopped by to drop off her Starmie and her Horsea to play at the Gym in The Misty Mermaid. It is unknown for how long afterwards the sisters continued to do this.
In Gotta Catch Ya Later!, the sisters called Misty to tell her that they had won a trip around the world because Daisy was third place in a pageant. They made Misty return to Cerulean City so she could take over the role of Gym Leader for them.
They returned to the Gym two weeks before A Date with Delcatty. However, Misty is still the official Gym Leader, with Daisy and the other sisters filling in when Misty is away. However, they still don't like battling, and in A Real Cleffa-Hanger, Daisy asked Misty if they could just give Badges to the Trainers instead of battling them.
In Luvdisc Is A Many Splendored Thing!, Daisy invited Tracey over to see the Gym's new Luvdisc, Caserin and Luverin. Butch and Cassidy of Team Rocket went on to nab Luverin for Dr. Namba. However Daisy gave chase in her car, with Misty, Tracey and Caserin, in the back, and later her ready-packed inflatable boat. Later Daisy and Misty used their Luvdisc to defeat the Rocket duo in a tag team effort.
Daisy, along with Violet and Lily, reappeared in a fantasy during the Poké Problem segment of Alola, Kanto!, where the Spectacular Sisters ditched the Gym to go on a trip, leaving Misty in charge of everything. She reappeared again in the same capacity in Alola, Alola!, although Misty revealed she had Daisy and the others take over Gym duties while she was in Alola.
Cheerful and somewhat absentminded, Daisy spends more time at the Cerulean Gym compared to Violet and Lily. As such, she does show some prowess, responsibility, and determination as a Gym Leader compared to Violet and Lily, which is especially evident in how she, alongside Misty, spearheaded a rescue operation for Luverin when it was abducted by Cassidy and Butch of Team Rocket, and later defeating them. However, she is still not very responsible as a Gym Leader overall. She will give Gym Badges out for free, even when Misty is the official Leader.
Rather Daisy, much like Lily and Violet, is more focused on her looks, with her main ambition in life being acting and modelling. She played the lead actress in the dragracer film "High Speed Hannah". Daisy is also the brains behind the Cerulean Gym's famous underwater ballets, which bring her and her sisters much acclaim.
