From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Lizabeth (Japanese: ヒロミ Hiromi) is a main character who appeared in Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea. She is a descendant of the People of the Water, denoted by her blue necklace and bracelet. Lizabeth travels with her grandfather Shep, mother Meredith and father Kyle as a member of performers troupe, The Marina Group.
In the anime
Ash and his friends met Lizabeth and her family after noticing several bubbles of water appear out of nowhere in a barren field. The group later witnessed one the Marina Group's water performances, where Lizabeth was seen wearing a Goldeen-inspired costume and swimming with Dewgong.
The next day, May reported that she had dreamed of swimming towards a sea temple. Lizabeth admitted that she had the same dream when she was younger, and explained that it is a hallmark sign that someone is a descendant of the People of the Water. Lizabeth later accompanied her family, Jack Walker, and Ash's group to an ancient People of the Water site, where she and her family explained the legends that surround the ancient group.
Later, Lizabeth boarded her grandfather's ship, Blue Lagoon, to help return Manaphy to Samiya. During one of the voyage's stops, Manaphy chased after May's bandanna. Fearing that Manaphy was missing, Lizabeth captained a submersible with Ash and his friends aboard. They soon located Manaphy, but then hit some underwater turbulence and lost their radio connection with the Blue Lagoon. Manaphy helped escort the submersible out of the riptide and towards Samiya.
Lizabeth docked at Samiya and went on to explore the sea temple's grounds with the others. They later saw the Sea Crown in person, due to The Phantom using his obtained People of the Water mark to unlock an entryway. After the Phantom began to dismantle the Sea Crown, which caused Samiya to flood with water, Lizabeth led Ash's group back to the submersible in an attempt to escape. However, Ash and May decided to help Jack Walker restore the Sea Crown, leaving Lizabeth, Brock, and Max in the sub.
Being unable to reach the Sea Crown, Jack fled Samiya, and Lizabeth reluctantly decided to leave Samiya without Ash and May. Fortunately, Ash managed to restore the Sea Crown in time, causing Samiya to rise from the ocean. Lizabeth and the others then became bystanders during the showdown between the Water Pokémon and the Phantom and his crew. Once the battle ended with the Phantom's defeat, Lizabeth, family, and Ash's group were surrounded in a mystical golden light, which allowed them to soar through the sky and ocean with the Pokémon. They all then watched as Samiya disappeared back into the ocean.
Everyone later returned to port, where Shep's shipmates were waiting. Lizabeth and the others then returned to their travel vehicle, and later, she waved goodbye to Ash and his friends.
Lizabeth briefly reappeared in a montage in The Rise of Darkrai, which chronicled the preceding nine movies.
Lizabeth is a positive person and happily offers comfort to those in need. She has a close relationship with her family, though Lizabeth doesn't like it whenever Meredith tells stories about her childhood. Lizabeth knows a lot about her ancestor's culture, but was unable to read their ancient text.
She is one of the few women Brock has met that actually likes him in return.
