Marigold (Japanese: モモッチ Momocchi) is one of the characters of the day in Clash of the Connoisseurs!. She is the daughter of a wealthy man whom she lives with in an enormous mansion just outside Stonesthrow Town. Her father had hired both Cilan and Ricard Nouveau to help pick out her first Pokémon. Unknown to them, Marigold already had a Pokémon friend that she played with secretly in her backyard. Cilan, Ash, and Iris eventually figured out it was a Foongus and she explained that she was afraid her father would not like it and kept it a secret from him. He did not mind at all, however, and she was allowed to keep Foongus as her friend.
Marigold is known to be rather shy and hid behind her father's leg whenever Cilan or Ricard wanted to ask her a question. With her Foongus, though, she is shown to be especially playful and happy. She is also a bit nervous to explain something like that she wants to have Foongus as her partner and that she secretly played with it in her backyard.
