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.

"Oh! There's the exit! I want to get tougher so I won't be such a scaredy-cat. <player>, bye-bye! Thank you!"
  • When walking:
"I like helpful Pokémon moves like Growl and Minimize. Those kinds of moves are my favorites."
"This cave... It's so easy to get confused. Do you know where we are?"

Mira in the anime

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

Brock quickly realized that Mira was being deliberately deceptive, with everything planned from the very beginning. Mira apologized for the web of lies, admitting that no one would help her if she told the truth. 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's Abra
Abra was first seen with Mira when she had asked Ash and his friends for help finding her Pokémon that was at the bottom of a dam. After a few failed attempts, and an attack from Team Rocket, Mira finally found her lost Pokémon, Sandshrew, and Teleported Ash and his friends to Hearthome City.

Abra's only known move is Teleport.

Mira's Sandshrew
Mira and her friends found a Poké Ball one day at school, and inside was Sandshrew. The trio decided to raise the Pokémon, sharing the duties between themselves. However, Sandshrew was accidentally left inside its Ball when the town was flooded for a new dam. Mira and her Abra had attempted to retrieve Sandshrew, but a wild Gyarados kept them at bay.

With the help of Ash and his friends, Mira was able to deal with the Gyarados and retrieve Sandshrew from the old school in Sandshrew's Locker!. When
