Lilian Meridian (Japanese: リリアン Lilian) is a character in the Pokémon anime. She is the Kanto Contest announcer.


Lilian in her casual clothes

Lilian is the younger sister of Vivian. Although they look very similar, they are drastically different in terms of personality. According to her, even if they dress so differently from each other, they are still mistaken for one another.

Lilian befriended May just before the Saffron Contest, and after seeing how far she was willing to go to free the other Pokémon that were entering the contest. She helped May out when May found herself unable to enter the Contest due to Harley telling her that her Hoenn Contest Pass would be acceptable. May was actually required to get a brand new pass to enter Contests in Kanto but had missed the registration. Lillian noticed that May had been misled and helped her enroll in the contest anyway.

Lilian continued to be the MC during all the Kanto Contests, and also informed May of the Contest on Chrysanthemum Island following her loss in the Wisteria Contest. Lilian was the main MC during the Kanto Grand Fesival as well.


This listing is of Lilian's known Pokémon in the anime:

Lilian's Espeon
While preparing for the Saffron Contest, Lilian used her Espeon to perform a small appeal to make sure the lighting equipment was working fine. Espeon created an appeal so beautiful it entranced May's Squirtle causing it to run onto the stage to show off its moves.

Espeon's known moves are Swift and Psychic.
