Mom (Japanese: おかあさん mother) is the mother of Ethan, KrisC, or LyraHGSS.

In the Generation II games and HeartGold and SoulSilver, the player's mother informs them that the Pokégear has returned from the repair shop. In Generation II, she then helps set the day of the week and, in non-Japanese and non-Korean releases, set daylight saving time accordingly (except if it's between 11:00 PM and 12:59 AM in-game, in which the game prevents this due to the day of the week changing; she will claim that she lost the instruction booklet for the Pokégear, although not during the initial setup process).

She will save the player's money at their request so that a quarter of the money won from each battle is automatically sent to her, and money can be deposited and withdrawn from her (in HeartGold and SoulSilver, if the player has PokémonDollar.png999,999 on hand then no additional money earned from battles will be sent to her, contrary to what the end-of-battle dialogue claims). She occasionally buys decorationsGSC, damage-reducing BerriesHGSS, or other items (listed below) with the player's money, then apologizes for spending the money she is saving. Her cooking specialty is the Cinnabar Volcano Burger.

Items purchased

Generation II

After the player wins a Trainer battle, the player's mother may purchase items for them.

When the player's savings reach certain amounts, the player's mother may purchase one of the items below. Each item can only be obtained once.

Trigger Cost Item

PokémonDollar.png4000 PokémonDollar.png270 Repel Repel
PokémonDollar.png7000 PokémonDollar.png600 Super Potion Super Potion

If the player's mother cannot purchase one of the above items, then she may randomly purchase an item below if the player's savings are an exact multiple of PokémonDollar.png2300. The target multiple rises each time the player's savings pass or equal the previous target (starting with PokémonDollar.png2300) and never lowers. This means that if the player's savings increase from PokémonDollar.png4500 to PokémonDollar.png4700 after a battle, they will thereafter be unable to trigger one of these items at PokémonDollar.png4600 even if they make a withdrawal from their savings.
