From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Princess Salvia (Japanese: サルビア王女 Princess Salvia) is a character in the Pokémon anime. She made her main appearance in Dawn of a Royal Day!.
She is a doppelgänger of Dawn, only differing in appearance by her hairstyle, clothing, and voice. Salvia wished to escape from her royal duties and compete in a Pokémon Contest after all her hard training with Togekiss. She and Dawn, who she admitted was a fan of, swapped identities for the day. Her employee, Freesia, was a part of the ploy and assisted Dawn in taking on Salvia's royal duties while Salvia herself competed in the Contest as Dawn.
Using her Togekiss, Salvia won against Jessilina in the final round and earned the Arrowroot Town Ribbon. Out of kindness, she gave the Ribbon she won to Jessilina rather than keeping it for herself. Salvia later told Ash and Brock that she thoroughly enjoyed the experience. She also gave her Togekiss to Dawn so that it could compete in more Contests.
Salvia appeared in a flashback in With the Easiest of Grace! and briefly appeared in A Grand Fight for Winning!, watching the finals of the Sinnoh Grand Festival on television.
This listing is of the Ribbons Salvia has obtained in the Sinnoh region:
- Before the airing of Dawn of a Royal Day!, she was referred to as Princess Iris (アイリス王女) by official sources.
- Her name comes from Salvia, a genus of plants in the mint family.
