Sabrina (Japanese: ナツメ Natsume) is the Gym Leader of Saffron City's Gym, known officially as the Saffron Gym. She hands out the Marsh Badge to Trainers who defeat her in battle. She possesses psychic abilities and specializes in Psychic-type Pokémon.

In the core series games

Sabrina is the Gym Leader of the Saffron Gym. Known as "The Master of Psychic Pokémon" ("The Mistress of Psychic-type Pokémon" in Generation IV), she has had psychic powers ever since she was a child, when she accidentally bent a spoon. She apparently dislikes battling, but is hard to beat because she can communicate with her Pokémon telepathically. Her fame has grown so much that even Trainers living in the Sevii Islands have heard of her. Previously, there were two Gyms in Saffron City, a Fighting-type Gym and a Psychic-type Gym. Sabrina used her advantage to defeat the rival Gym and strip them of their Gym status, turning them to the Fighting Dojo.

She appears to have the ability to see the future. In Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal she states that three years ago she foresaw the arrival of another strong challenger (realized in the form of Ethan, Kris, and Lyra). After this second defeat, she accepts that her ability of foresight may be limited. In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, she will conclude each post-game rematch with the player by making the aforementioned prediction of facing another equally strong Trainer in three years.

In Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, FireRed, and LeafGreen and Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Trainers must navigate warp tiles to find Sabrina hiding in the middle of her Gym. Defeating her will earn them the Marsh Badge and a Psychic-type TM: TM46 (Psywave) in Generation I, TM04 (Calm Mind) in Generation III, and TM33 (Calm Mind) in Generation VII. The Gym maintains a similar style in Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver. The warp tiles are maintained, as is the Badge: Sabrina, however, gives no TM in Generation II and TM48 (Skill Swap) in Generation IV.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Sabrina has received a major redesign, now sporting a vastly different hairstyle and changing her wardrobe from a conservative dark-red turtleneck to a completely new, more casual-looking outfit. After her initial defeat in Saffron City, she ventures outside of her Gym. She can be found at the dock for the S.S. Aqua in the Olivine City Harbor at any time on Friday. After the player has obtained her phone number here, she can be called during Sunday afternoon to arrange a rematch at the Fighting Dojo she once defeated.

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Sabrina appears in the Pokémon World Tournament as a participant along with other Gym Leaders. She also appears at Pokéstar Studios as a Movie Star, playing the role of Magic Queen Bellelba (Japanese: まほうクイーン ジュジュベ Magic Queen Jujube), a villain in the Mystery Doors of the Magical Land Series.

In the anime

Main series

Sabrina with a doll of her former self

Ash and his friends first encountered Sabrina's younger self as they approached Saffron City in Abra and the Psychic Showdown. Her younger version went on to save the group from Team Rocket's seemingly inescapable trap room. Ash and his friends soon realized that the young girl was in fact Sabrina when they visited the Saffron Gym for Ash's fourth Badge.

Ash went on to challenge Sabrina in a one-on-one match, but Pikachu was soon overwhelmed by Sabrina's newly-evolved Kadabra and its strong Psychic powers. After Ash forfeited, Sabrina shrunk down and transported the group to her giant play town. Sabrina's father helped them escape before they were crushed by a ball.

Afterwards, Sabrina's father recommended that Ash catch himself a Ghost Pokémon to defeat Sabrina's Psychic Pokémon. The group then headed to the Lavender Tower, and by the end of The Tower of Terror, Ash managed to befriend a Haunter. Sabrina was only seen during flashbacks in that episode.

Sabrina reappeared in Haunter versus Kadabra, where Ash had a rematch against her upon his return. However, Haunter abandoned him as soon as the challenge began, and Ash's other Pokémon were too scared to face Kadabra. Misty and Brock were subsequently transformed into dolls and placed into Sabrina's dollhouse alongside her mother, who had been stuck there for some time, while Sabrina's father managed to rescue Ash from suffering the same fate.

Later, Sabrina's father formally introduced himself and explained to Ash that his daughter had developed incredibly strong psychic powers that even exceeded his own. She was able to use her psychic powers to do many things, such as teleportation, telepathy, psychokinesis, and transmutation. She soon became obsessed with perfecting them and developed two separate personalities: her younger self and her adult self. At some point, Sabrina became the Saffron City Gym Leader and her notable strengths helped her establish the Gym as a training school for practicing Psychics.

Ash later reunited with Haunter and returned to the Gym once more. However, Haunter disappeared again, forcing Pikachu to battle Kadabra in its place. During the match, Haunter abruptly reappeared and started to playfully tease Sabrina. Haunter's antics delighted Sabrina so much that she was no longer able to contain her emotions and started to laugh. Her psychically-linked Pokémon joined along as well. This caused her two personalities to merge back into one, and as a result of this incapacitation, Ash won the Marsh Badge. Afterwards, Haunter chose to stay with Sabrina and her reunited family.


As Sabrina's psychic powers increased, she grew more obsessed with developing them. She also became less emotional, using her abilities for destructive purposes. This caused a deep psychological rift, and the emotions she tried to shut off developed into a separate personality: a young girl who manifested as a puppet around Sabrina. Sabrina's mind was then divided into the cold, callous woman with a thirst for power and the little girl who just wanted to have fun.

Prior to befriending Haunter, Sabrina was a menacing and strong Gym Leader. She was shown to be able to telepathically command her Kadabra. However, her lighthearted nature was seen briefly at the end of Haunter versus Kadabra.

The Electric Tale of Pikachu presents a more sympathetic portrayal of Sabrina. She appears in Haunting My Dreams as a kind and gentle shrine maiden who runs a Gym in the mountains with her Abra.

When she was a child, Sabrina's Pokémon were all killed by a gigantic Haunter called the Black Fog that used Dream Eater to suck out their souls. After defeating Ash in a Gym battle, Sabrina hears of the Black Fog appearing at the Pokémon Tower, and goes off to defeat it. Unfortunately, she herself falls prey to the Black Fog and her soul is sucked out. Eventually, with Brock and Ash's help, Sabrina is able to defeat the Black Fog. Though Ash tries to catch it with an Ultra Ball, it kills itself using Selfdestruct rather than let itself be captured.

Pokémon Adventures

Red, Green & Blue arc

Sabrina is one of the three villainous heads of Team Rocket, and serves under Giovanni in Pokémon Adventures.

She debuts in Meanwhile...Vileplume!, where she is seen floating atop her Kadabra and spots Red leaving with an Eevee that Team Rocket experimented on. She comments how perfect it is that Eevee is in his hands and takes her leave elsewhere. Under Giovanni's orders, Sabrina captured Moltres and brought it to him at Saffron City. She attacks Red at Pallet Town, where she reveals that she has kidnapped Professor Oak and taunts Red by telling him to come to Saffron City. Once they arrive, they find out that Sabrina's Mr. Mime closed off Saffron City with a barrier.

Sabrina as a member of Team Rocket

Once Red, Blue, and Green manage to get past the barrier and inside the Silph Co. building, they are split up and face the three Rocket members alone. Sabrina is paired up against Green, who she forces to relive painful moments of her past by using her psychic abilities to pry into her mind and make her fears look real through illusions. Green eventually escapes the illusions by goading Sabrina into slashing her dress open, revealing two of her Pokémon hidden in her chest. Green's Pokémon use sound attacks to prevent Sabrina from using her powers and causing the illusions to fail. With Sabrina distracted, Green takes this chance to steal Sabrina's Marsh Badge and make her escape.

Sabrina eventually gets out of the attack and finds Red and Green with the Badge Energy Amplifier. Angered, she summons Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno and has them surround Red. When Green activates the machine in order to obtain the new Pokémon she assumed it would create, she accidentally causes the three legendary Pokémon to fuse into one creature. Sabrina commands Thu-Fi-Zer and uses it to attack the three with its great strength. Eventually, it is defeated when Red, Blue, and Green combine their attacks into one and manage to separate the three Pokémon back into their original forms.

Yellow arc
Sabrina in the eleventh chapter

Sabrina reappears with Koga and Lt. Surge to help battle the Elite Four on Cerise Island. There, they reveal that after their defeat at the Silph Co. building, they managed to escape and were planning on making a comeback before the Elite Four showed up. Although reluctant, the Rocket triad decides to work together with their former enemies to defeat their common opponents. Sabrina uses the Spoons of Destiny to decide with pair would face which member of the Elite Four. Sabrina is paired up with Green, and the two head off to face Lorelei in battle.

As soon as they arrive to face their opponent, Lorelei binds the two together with her ice handcuffs. Due to their lack of proper teamwork, the battle was only made harder with Sabrina and Green bound together. Eventually, Green defeats Lorelei after revealing the arm that was bound to Sabrina's arm was actually her Ditty in disguise and uses it to tie the villain up. This angers Sabrina, who soon yells at Green for fooling her just like she did to Lorelei. With the battle over, Sabrina leaves Green to meet up with Giovanni, who had also come to help battle. Although she and Lt. Surge suggest restarting Team Rocket again, Giovanni tells the two to go home and continue tending to their Gyms.

Gold, Silver & Crystal arc

The battle with Lorelei gave Sabrina severe frostbite injuries on her wrist. She managed to cure this by traveling to Mt. Silver and bathed in the hot springs found there. There, she encountered Red, who was there to cure his own frostbite injuries, and told him that something was going to happen at the Pokémon League. After leaving, Sabrina leaves Red a note telling him about another hot spring that can cure his frostbite much faster so that he can get to the Pokémon League quickly.

Afterwards, she travels to the Pokémon League to have an exhibition match with the other Kanto Gym Leaders against the Johto Gym Leaders. Sabrina is paired up against Bugsy, whose attempts to befriend her end in vain. Despite the type disadvantage, Sabrina manages to defeat Bugsy with her Mr. Mime, who uses its abilities to create invisible walls to its advantage. When the Masked Man attacks the Pokémon League with his army of mind controlled Team Rocket Grunts, Sabrina assists her fellow Gym Leaders by battling the army. Once the battle had finally ended, Sabrina went back to usual Gym Leader duties.

Black 2 & White 2 arc

Much later, she is revealed to have become an actress at Pokéstar Studios. When she notices Whitley having trouble picking a movie to act in, Sabrina has her Alakazam use its abilities to pick out a Brycen-Man movie for her.

In the TFG

Sabrina appears as a Trainer figure in the Groundbreakers expansion pack of the Pokémon Trading Figure Game.


  • Her Japanese Leader title is エスパー レディ.
  • In the Generation I games, Sabrina, along with other Trainer classes, is seen with a whip. This is possibly a reference to an earlier point in development of Pokémon Red and Green. According to Ken Sugimori, Game Freak once considered the idea of humans fighting Pokémon themselves.[3] It could also simply refer to the traditional use of whips in animal taming.
  • In Red and Green, there is an oversight that causes the player to win against Sabrina even if they lose by returning to the Saffron Gym; this includes being registered as a winner and receiving the Marsh Badge and TM46. This error was fixed in Pokémon Blue and the international Pokémon Red and Blue.
  • Sabrina is the first Gym Leader in the anime to receive a Pokémon from a main character. The second is Gardenia.
  • Although Sabrina's official hair color is grayish-blue, there are many depictions of her with green, purple or black hair.
  • Even though Sabrina isn't an Aura user, one of her quotes in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen has her describing Psychic abilities in a manner similar to Aura's description.
  • In Red and Blue, she is the only Gym Leader who uses a Pokémon not of the type she specializes in during Gym battles.
  • Sabrina uses a Venomoth on her team in all the games in which Koga does not use one on his team, and vice versa.
  • In FireRed and LeafGreen, two of Sabrina's post-battle quotes seem to have been accidentally swapped, with her talking about psychic powers after giving the player TM04 instead of describing the TM, which she only does if spoken to again afterwards.
