Lilian Meridian (Japanese: リリアン Lilian) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. She is the master of ceremonies of Kanto Pokémon Contests and the younger sister of Vivian Meridian. She first appeared in The Saffron Con.

History

Lilian in casual clothing

Lilian debuted in The Saffron Con, in which she was seen testing the lighting equipment of the Saffron City Contest Hall. She commanded her Espeon to display its moves to make sure the stage lights were working properly. The performance was watched by Ash and his friends, who were visiting the Saffron Hall so May could have a look at the stage. May initially mistook her for Vivian, and she revealed that she is Vivian's younger sister and that people often confuse the two of them.

Later, Lilian witnessed May and her Squirtle sending James and Meowth blasting off after their attempt to steal the Pokémon belonging to the Coordinators who were entering the Saffron Contest. The next day she encountered May in the lobby of the Saffron Hall and, upon noticing that she was sad, asked her what had happened. After hearing that May had been misinformed about using her Hoenn Contest Pass in the Kanto region and the registration deadline, Lilian asked the clerk in the registration desk to issue May a Kanto Contest Pass and to accept her entry as there would be no Pokémon Contest if it were not for May rescuing the participants' Pokémon.

In A Hurdle for Squirtle, during the Battle Stage of the Saffron Contest, Lilian issued both Jessebella and Harley a yellow card as neither of them was giving commands to their Pokémon. This subtracted half the points from both Coordinators' scores and set the battle in motion, as Harley subsequently asked his Ariados to use String Shot on Jessebella's Wobbuffet.

Following May's loss to Harley in the final round of the Wisteria Contest in Harley Rides Again, Lilian informed her that a Pokémon Contest was scheduled to take place on Chrysanthemum Island. She also handed May an unsigned letter from Brianna.

While hosting the Kanto Grand Festival, which was held at Indigo Plateau and took place from May, We Harley Drew'd Ya! to Channeling the Battle Zone!, Lilian had the help of a reporter named Jessadia, actually Team Rocket's Jessie in disguise. During the competition, Lilian was able to interact with her sister Vivian, who had been invited to join the panel of judges as a special guest judge.

Character

Lilian is the younger sister of Vivian, the master of ceremonies of Hoenn Pokémon Contests. Although the two look very similar and share the same occupation, they are drastically different in terms of personality. While Vivian is classy and graceful, Lilian has a bubbly and cheerful personality. According to Lilian, even if they dress so differently from each other, they are still mistaken for one another.

Lilian is responsible for hosting all the Kanto Pokémon Contests sanctioned by the Pokémon Activities Committee and the Kanto Grand Festival as well. As such, she has appeared in a number of episodes with Contests during the Advanced Generation series. Lilian's style as an announcer is similar to that of a sportscaster and her catchphrase is "Let's get busy!" in the English dub and "Here we go!" in the original Japanese version, which she will say when kicking off the Performance Stage and each battle in the Battle Stage.

Espeon
While preparing for the Saffron City Pokémon 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.
