Moani

(Japanese: モアニ Moani) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. She is a friend of Ash's Torracat and runs a fruit stall in the Hau'oli City marketplace.

History

Moani first appeared in First Catch in Alola, Ketchum-Style!, where she provided Litten some Berries. After spotting a flock of Pikipek, Trumbeak, and Rowlet fly overhead, she explained to Litten that this happens every year where they come to collect food which they willingly give.

Moani reappeared in That's Why the Litten is a Scamp!‬, where she provided Litten with some more berries and explained to Ash and Professor Kukui that Litten does this every day.

Moani reappeared in One Journey Ends, Another Begins..., where she picked up a doughnut that had fallen out of Ash's bag. She went to give it back to Ash only for Litten to grab it and run off. Ash visited her following Stoutland's disappearance where she gave him some berries to give to Litten and to tell Litten it can come to the marketplace anytime.

Moani appeared again in Alolan Open House!, where she attended the Visitors Day at the Pokémon School where she was reunited with Litten.

Moani appeared again in The Ol' Raise and Switch!, where she gave Litten some Sitrus Berries along with Rockruff, Rowlet, and Snowy.

Moani appeared once more in The Professors' New Adventure!, where she was among those attending the wedding of Professor Kukui and Professor Burnet.

Moani appeared again in SM064, getting to meet Litten for the first time after its evolution into Torracat and gave it some Berries to eat. She also witnessed a fight between two groups of Passimian.

Moani reappeared yet again in Real Life...Inquire Within!, where she supplied Berries to Nurse Joy after hearing that she was feeling ill. She also met Ash and Mallow while they were gaining work experience at the Pokémon Center.

Moani appeared again in SM082, where her name was finally revealed by Mallow. She met Mallow and Steenee in the market place where she gave Steenee some fruit and watched as it danced. Learning that the Pokémon School were doing a PokéDance, she suggested that they do the Hula Dance and brought out her Oricorio to perform the dance, which inspired Mallow and Steenee to do it. She was invited to the Pokémon School for a PokéDance presentation, where it was revealed that she used to be a Dancer. She was later trapped by Team Rocket and watched as Steenee evolved into Tsareena.

Moani appeared again in SM083, where she offered an apple to a shrunken Sophocles and his Togedemaru, before Ash and Lillie arrived at her stall.

Character

Moani is shown to be a kind, old lady. This is shown through her friendship with Litten, where she was happy to provide it with berries and happy to provide them to other Pokémon, free of charge. She even provided Berries for Nurse Joy after learning that she was unwell.
