Blonde? Looks stark white to me--but is that covered under 'platnium blonde'?

'20s

She appears to be a young, attractive, blonde woman in her mid to early '20s.

I'm just curious if "'20s" is considered correct, as opposed to "20s" or "20's". --Jshadias 00:09, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)


Yeah, isn't the '20s 1920's? I doubt she's nearly 2000 years old.... surskitty 00:14, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)

You would put "20s." Sheep 00:30, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)

E4 = GL?

Just noticed it on this page - why is it that adding that "Elite Four" thing adds them to the "Gym Leader" catagory? O_o' --Pie 12:36, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Silver hair

What? Blue does not equal silver. In HG/SS her hair is blue. Silvery blue, but still blue. [[Derian]] 20:25, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

It was the overworld they were talkinng about, but I fixed it to make it easeir to understand.- Rocket Base

G/S/C Art

Can we make that picture smaller and change the tagline to just say "Generation II" instead of "Gold, Silver, and Crystal"? Because as it is now, it's pushing one of her trainer boxes to the right and causing there to have to be a lot of space put in before those trainer boxes to make them all line up on the left.

"Dark type trainer"

Can she really be considered a dark type trainer when she uses so many non-dark type Pokemon? Her only full dark type team is HGSS rematch and while I could give Gengar a pass for most of her teams, Vileplume has no relation to the "Dark" type whatsoever. Maybe Vileplume being of a dark color but that is an enormous stretch considering the later sprites show it as (dark) blue. - unsigned comment from Favna (talkcontribs)

This is based on her in-game quote in HGSS: "I am Karen of the Elite Four. You're <player>? How amusing. I love Dark-type Pokémon. I'm known for my overpowering tactics. Think you can take them? Just try to entertain me. Let's go." She is also portrayed as a Dark-type Trainer in other media, including the Pokémon Adventures manga and the TCG. ht14 20:22, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
She uses three Dark-types compared to the two non-Dark-types. Also, for comparison, Agatha is considered a Ghost-type Trainer despite her team having more of the Poison type than Ghost. And Lance had more Flying compared to Dragon. A type specialist isn't necessarily restricted to just that type, though it is fair to note that there were very few Dragon and Ghost types in Gen I.
