Mira (Japanese: ミル Miru) is a Pokémon Trainer from Sinnoh. She specializes in Pokémon with high Special Attack. She first appeared in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and made subsequent appearances in Pokémon Platinum and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.

In the games

Mira is one of five Trainers who can join with the main character during an event in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Later, she can join the player in competition at Sinnoh's Battle Tower. She first appears in the Wayward Cave. She got lost inside looking for Pokémon and needs to be escorted out. Mira says she prefers using support moves like Flash. She seems to admire the player, saying that she wants to be like the player when she grows up. She also tends to refer to herself in the third person; using her own name instead of saying "I". This is typical in Japanese, where it is used to indicate femininity or childishness.

Mira appeared in Sandshrew's Locker!. Wanting to use Dawn's Water Pokémon for her own purposes, she offered to teleport everyone to Hearthome using her Abra. However, she teleported them to a flooded city and told them her grandmother's pendant was lost in the newly-flooded lake. Everyone went diving to recover the pendant, but they were repelled by a wild Gyarados.

After another confession, Mira explained that actually the Poké Ball containing a Sandshrew she and her friends used to play with was left at the school when the town was flooded because of the dam.

Ash had Pikachu defeat the wild Gyarados, and Mira was reunited with her Sandshrew. Filled with gratitude, she had her Abra teleport everyone to Hearthome City.

Mira in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Mira first makes an appearance in the Battleground battling with Cheryl. The battle was unseen and it is unknown who had won or lost.

Later, after Buck and Looker are sent to the hospital after escaping from Team Galactic on Stark Mountain, Mira is seen crying next to Buck's hospital bed.

Later, Mira and Cheryl manage to convince Palmer to let them join him, Platinum, and Riley on their trip to the Distortion World. After traveling far enough, they arrive at the Spring Path, but find that Marley has been captured by the Advanced level Grunt. However, the Grunt reveals that he does not want to fight and has escaped from Team Galactic. Platinum forces him to take them to where the Distortion World is and they enter it, but get separated upon arriving due to the dimension's strange gravity.

There, Mira finds Charon, the man that defeated Buck, and tries to stop him from escaping. She is stopped by Jupiter and the other Galactic Commanders, who challenges them to a battle. Mira faces Saturn and his Toxicroak, while Marley and Cheryl fight Jupiter and Mars, respectively. During the battle, Mira has her Alakazam constantly boost its defensive power in an attempt to make the battle longer and her opponent unable to damage it.

The battle is interrupted by Giratina after it flies past them to fight the other legendary Pokémon. Mira furiously exclaims she would have won the battle if it had never interrupted.

After Charon is defeated, Mira, along with Cheryl and Buck, goes to take Heatran back to its home on Stark Mountain.
