Erica (Japanese: エリコ Eriko) is a Pokémon Coordinator and a recurring character who appeared in the anime. She appeared in Mean With Envy and Pacifidlog Jam.
Erica's first appearance was in Mean With Envy. She and her boyfriend Joshua were training for the Pacifidlog Town Contest. Erica hoped that she and Joshua would be the first couple to become winners in the Contest.
Much to Erica's chagrin, May began training with Joshua. They were only doing so as friends, but Erica refused to believe May's story. She was convinced that May was going to steal Joshua away from her.
During the Contest in Pacifidlog Jam, Joshua faced off against May in the Contest Battles. Erica hoped that Joshua would defeat her, but she was stunned when May ended up defeating him. Now more than ever, Erica wanted to defeat May. However, when May defeated Erica, the Coordinator had a change of heart. She told May that she was jealous of her, and that she shouldn't have been.
She and Joshua both had cameos watching May on TV during the Hoenn Grand Festival in Deceit and Assist.
Erica was jealous of May at first since she was with Joshua for a while when they were training for the Pokémon Contest. However, despite May trying to tell her the story, Erica still remains jealous and does everything for Joshua's attention. During the Contest, Erica hoped that she and Joshua would be the ones who would win the event and share the Ribbon. However, her dreams were shattered when May defeated Joshua and advanced to the final round. Erica had a change of heart since then and gained respect for May.

| Erica's Jynx was first seen in Mean With Envy where her owner was trying to show her off, to show that Jynx was much more cuter than May's Skitty to Joshua. She was then used when Team Rocket tried to steal Ash's Pikachu and Snorunt and with the help of Ash, May, Brock, Max and Joshua, they were able to send Team Rocket blasting off. She was used in the Pacifidlog Town Contest in the appeals round where she combined Blizzard and Psychic. After getting through to the second round along with May and Joshua, she went up against The Jester and Meowth in Pacifidlog Jam, and proceeded because Jessie was disqualified for cheating. In the finals, Jynx battled May and her Skitty and lost, earning May her fifth Ribbon.
Jynx's known moves are Hyper Beam, Blizzard, Psychic, and Lovely Kiss.
