From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Maren (Japanese: ミチコ Michiko) is a character from The Power of One. In the movie, she gave Ash, Misty, Tracey and their Pokémon a ride around the Orange Islands. However, a storm blew them off-course, and they were forced to land at Shamouti Island.
While on the island, Maren was surprised to see her old friend Carol on the island. With her, she learned all about the legendary Pokémon and the collecting of the spheres. She volunteered to help Ash on his journey to find them. Unfortunately, her boat crashed and sustained serious damage on one of the islands. Thus, Maren spent the remainder of the movie watching over the boat. She was last seen in the credits of the movie, leaving Shamouti Island with Ash and the others.
Maren briefly reappeared in a montage in The Rise of Darkrai, which chronicled the preceding nine movies.
- Her English name may be a pun of mariner, a person who directs or assists in the navigation of a ship.
- The large lock of hair coming out from under her hat is similar to Ethan's design in the Generation II games.
