Harper (Japanese: ホウ ) and Sarah (Japanese: スイ Sui) are characters appearing in Pokémon Sun and Moon and Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, as well as in the Pokémon anime. They are the younger twin sisters of Lana.

In the anime

Harper and Sarah appeared as recurring characters in Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon. They debuted in Yo, Ho, Ho! Go, Popplio!, when Lana brought Ash over to her house. The twins immediately took a liking to Ash's Pikachu and started pulling at his face, much to Pikachu's dislike. The twins also wondered if Ash was Lana's boyfriend, though Lana quickly denied this. Shortly after, Pikachu had enough of Harper and Sarah's antics and used Thunderbolt to shock them both, as well as Ash, Rowlet, Lana, Lana's Popplio, and Rotom.

Harper and Sarah visited the Pokémon School along with their mother during the Family Visit Day in Alolan Open House!, and later in Lillier and the Staff! to watch Lana perform in a school play.

In The Dex Can't Help It!, Harper and Sarah gathered around a fan, only to be shocked when Rotom appeared inside it.

Harper and Sarah reappeared during a flashback in Tasting the Bitter with the Sweet!, where they informed Lana about their encounter with a Drampa while they were lost in the forest. Lana immediately remembered her own encounter with a Drampa, so she, Mallow, and Ash went out to locate it.

In All They Want to Do is Dance Dance!, Harper and Sarah performed in Lana and Popplio's water balloon routine for a PokéDance concert held at the Pokémon School.

After Lana complained of her sisters' obsession with haunted houses, her friends opted to transform the school into a haunted house attraction for the twins in A Haunted House for Everyone!. Harper and Sarah enjoyed the experience and were unfazed even with the arrival of some Ghost Pokémon. A Mismagius later transported everyone into a world of illusions, during which Harper and Sarah ignored Lana's commands and continued to get lost within it. They all escaped unharmed after Komala intervened, though the twins remained unaware that they were in any danger.

In We Know Where You're Going, Eevee!, Harper and Sarah played with Popplio and Lana's newly caught Eevee before greeting their father as he returned home.

Harper and Sarah briefly appeared in Thank You, Alola! The Journey Continues!, where they watched as Lana was about to leave with on her sea voyage with their father.

Harper and Sarah are easily excitable, especially around Pokémon. Their playing tends to be a little rough, like in Yo, Ho, Ho! Go, Popplio!, where they were pulling on Pikachu's cheeks so hard that it got them shocked; and in The Ol' Raise and Switch!, where they were recklessly jumping on Turtonator's back.

The twins enjoy spending time with their older sister Lana. They also enjoy teasing her, often embarrassing Lana in the process. For example, they asked if Ash is her boyfriend in Yo, Ho, Ho! Go, Popplio! and All They Want to Do is Dance Dance!. However, they are capable of complying with Lana, such as in A Haunted House for Everyone!, where, after they ignored all of her commands and continued to explore the illusory world, Lana's ominous scolding was all that it took to frighten them into submission.

The twins often fight over certain things, such as a fan in The Dex Can't Help It! and a Magikarp pillow in the Poké Problem segment of SM094.

Lana's sisters depicted in her concept art sheet
  • In her concept art, Lana is depicted with two older twin sisters, as opposed to Harper and Sarah being her younger twin sisters.
  • It is possible to differentiate the twins; Harper is wearing a Shellder blouse, while Sarah is wearing a Slowpoke one.
  • Considering the number of spikes in their hair, with Lana having more spikes as the eldest, it's possible that Harper is the older twin, and Sarah is the younger one.
