Lillie (Japanese: リーリエ Lilie) is a student at the Pokémon School on Melemele Island and one of Ash's classmates. She made her debut in Alola to New Adventure!.

History

The incident that caused Lillie's fear

Lillie is the daughter of Lusamine and the younger sister of Gladion, who lives in a mansion estate in Hau'oli City. Although she once enjoyed playing with Pokémon, she developed a crippling fear of touching them after an incident occurred during a visit to Aether Paradise, where she was attacked by an Ultra Beast, Nihilego, and rescued by a Type: Null. According to Gladion, the trauma she suffered caused her to suppress her memory of the event. Lillie returned to her Hau'oli estate while her mother remained behind and her brother ran away, leaving her under the care of her family's servants, including Hobbes. Despite her fear, Lillie continued to enjoy studying Pokémon and subsequently enrolled at the Pokémon School on Melemele Island.

Lillie made her anime debut in Alola to New Adventure!, where she tried in vain to warn Ash from being trampled by her classmates' Tauros as he stumbled upon the school. She quickly demonstrated her fear of Pokémon when she cowered behind Ash upon being approached by one of the Tauros, only to be startled by his Pikachu. Later, when Ash described an unfamiliar Pokémon that he but no one else had witnessed, Lillie deduced that he saw Tapu Koko, the island's guardian deity.

In The Guardian's Challenge, after Ash enrolled in the school and showed his new classmates the Z-Ring he received from Tapu Koko, Lillie explained the guardian's fickle and mischievous nature to him. She and the other classmates saw Tapu Koko for themselves when it appeared to challenge Ash and Pikachu to a Pokémon battle, during which Lillie advised Ash about Tapu Koko's techniques.

In Lillie's Egg-xhilarating Challenge!, Lillie agreed to watch over a newly discovered Pokémon Egg from Mount Lanakila for a class assignment, seeing it as an opportunity to finally overcome her fear of touching Pokémon. After several failed exercises at petting Ash's Pikachu, Rowlet, and Rotom, Lillie was able to touch the Egg when she instinctively shielded it from a wild Salandit.

Lillie's fear of touching Pokémon

In Racing to a Big Event!, Lillie watched her friends participate in the Pokémon Pancake Race. At the end of the episode, her Egg hatched and was discovered to be an Alolan Vulpix.

Lillie officially caught the Vulpix, which she named Snowy, in Getting to Know You!, making her a Pokémon Trainer like the others. Though her fear of touching Pokémon initially persisted, she spent time bonding with Snowy. Eventually they were confronted by Team Rocket, and Snowy used Powder Snow to protect Lillie from Mareanie. When Snowy was blasted off a rooftop by Mareanie's Sludge Bomb, Lillie leapt off after it and caught it in her arms. They were saved by Ash's Rowlet. After that, Team Rocket was frozen by Snowy's Powder Snow and taken away by Bewear. From that point on, Lillie was okay with holding Snowy, though she still froze at contact with other Pokémon.

Lillie was reunited with her brother in A Glaring Rivalry!. Gladion was surprised by the fact that Lillie was able to touch Pokémon again and told her to treasure her Vulpix. Later, she invited Ash to her home to talk how much more cold and distant Gladion appeared to be from the last time Lillie saw him six months ago, but was reassured that he was still a good person when Ash reminded her of Gladion's earlier words of encouragement. At the end of the episode, Lillie arrived at the beach, where Ash and Gladion had held a battle, and became annoyed by the fact that her brother took off so early without saying goodbye.

In The Ol' Raise and Switch!, Professor Kukui tasked everyone with switching their partner Pokémon with somebody else. Pikachu was given to Lillie while Snowy went to Ash. At first, Lillie's fear gave her trouble getting closer to Pikachu. After a battle with Hobbes in which she managed to defeat his Oricorio, she found herself able to touch Pikachu when she gave him a hug in celebration. After the weekend had passed by, she showed her surprised classmates that she was able to touch Pikachu at will. Lillie then promised herself to take it step by step until she was able to touch every kind of Pokémon. Lillie once again combated her fear in Treasure Hunt, Akala Style!, where she decided to use a Ride Pokémon, Stoutland, without any protection. She was initially overwhelmed and ran away, but after some encouraging words from Professor Kukui and Olivia, and remembering what led to her recent experiences of touching Snowy and Pikachu, she was finally able to ride Stoutland by the end of the day. Although she couldn't join the treasure hunt with the others during the episode due to her fear, Professor Kukui stated that she found her own treasure, being one step closer to overcoming her fear for good.

In When Regions Collide!, she and Sophocles had a Multi Battle against Brock. Sophocles started attacking first, but he made the mistake of thinking Brock's Geodude was weak against Electric-type moves. Lillie then assured him that she got this and commanded Snowy to use Powder Snow. Much to her and Sophocles' surprise, Brock countered the attack by using a Counter Shield. After the battle was over, she was fascinated by how amazing Gym Leaders were.

Lillie, no longer afraid of touching Pokémon

Lillie was present in SM044 when Ash brought a Cosmog he had discovered to class; because no one knew the Pokémon's name, Lillie decided to name it Nebby. Later, Lillie reunited with Lusamine, demonstrating her annoyance with her mother for treating her like a young child. Lillie further explained how her mother never seemed to respect her wishes, revealing that Lusamine once evolved a Clefairy Lillie wanted to take care of, finding her daughter's reason for wanting to keep it unevolved – "It looks cuter that way" – to be illogical.

In SM048, Lillie argued with Lusamine for putting work before her family, and demanded not to be bothered by her anymore. She later regretted their fight, wanting to meet Gladion again as well. This desire caused Nebby to teleport her to Ten Carat Hill, where Gladion was hiding with "Silvally", the same Type: Null that rescued her as a child. The sight of Type: Null caused Lillie's repressed memory of her childhood trauma to resurface, which once again rendered her unable to touch any Pokémon, including Snowy.

Character

Lillie and Hobbes

Lillie is a polite and kindhearted girl from a wealthy upbringing who always shows care and concern for others. She is terrified of physically interacting with Pokémon, and tends to freeze up whenever one Pokémon enters her personal space; in Yo, Ho, Ho! Go, Popplio!, she goes so far as to wear a full suit of diving gear to avoid making contact with Pokémon during a fishing class. When other characters point out her fear, she denies it by saying she simply chooses to avoid Pokémon. Hobbes reveals in Lillie's Egg-xhilarating Challenge! that the fear came from an incident during a trip with her mother that Lillie herself cannot recall; this incident was revealed to be an attack by a Nihilego in SM047. In Getting to Know You!, she became comfortable with touching her own Pokémon, and she has been shown touching other Pokémon since then, such as Pikachu in The Ol' Raise and Switch! and a Stoutland in Treasure Hunt, Akala Style!. However, in SM048, coming face to face with Gladion's Silvally triggers traumatic memories that cause her to revert to being unable to touch any Pokémon again, even Snowy.

Despite her fear, Lillie enjoys studying Pokémon from a researcher's perspective, and is comfortable with being around them at a safe distance. She also has a tendency to bring up information she's gathered from books. Lillie is extremely knowledgeable about the behavior, types, and background of Alola's native Pokémon species and regional variants, including guardian deities such as Tapu Koko. However, she appears to know little about Pokémon in other regions, as seen when she expresses surprise that Exeggutor—a Grass/Dragon-type Pokémon in Alola—is a Grass/Psychic-type Pokémon elsewhere. In SM045, Lillie is shown to enjoy writing in her journal before she goes to sleep.
