Trista (Japanese: クルティ Curti) is a character introduced in Pokémon Masters EX. She is one of the three receptionists at the Pokémon Center in Centra City, along with Tricia and Trinnia.

In the games

Trista's reception desk

Trista staffs the reception desk at the Pokémon Center. Talking with her gives the player quick access to things they might need to use frequently:

  • The Tips menu gives in-depth information about all the mechanics of Pokémon Masters EX.
  • Trista's Guide is a short guide designed to ease new players into the game by introducing them to some important features the game has to offer.
  • Event Info highlights three currently ongoing events with an image and a short blurb. Tapping on the image for any of these events will immediately take the player to the area info for that event.

During the story, Trista passes on warnings to the player when potentially dangerous activity occurs. She also occasionally serves a role similar to that of traditional Pokémon Center nurses, helping to treat injured Pokémon and being consulted about health issues of Pokémon.


On hand

Trista uses this Pokémon to defend Professor Oak from Team Rocket during the final chapter of the Villain Arc.

"Maybe I should do some exploring, too..."
"That area info was intriguing!"
"When it comes to area info, I'm your girl!"
"Today's area info is..."

"Events only last for a limited time, though. Act fast, or you might miss your chance at exploring the new areas!"
"Feel free to check out the news for a list of all the events currently going on."
"Oh! <player>! There's something you need to know."
"We got news that a Legendary Pokémon suddenly appeared in a certain area of Pasio."
"What's more, they say it has a frighteningly intimidating air about it and attacks any sync pairs that come close."
"Where could it have come from? The Pokémon may be on edge after coming to an unfamiliar place."
"Be careful if you go near it!"
  • Welcome Back Rally intro

"This is a Poryphone! It's a multi-purpose information device that is an absolute must-have here on Pasio!"
"Since team battles are the norm here at the PML, you'll need your Poryphone to communicate with the other sync pairs on your team."
"Oops! I got ahead of myself. "Sync pair" is a special term we use here on Pasio to describe a single Trainer-Pokémon pair."
"Hm? Are you perhaps looking for a team?"
"In that case, you're in luck! I just met a couple other sync pairs who are searching for new teammates as well. I'll introduce you!"

"This place is called the Trainer Lodge!"
"It's a space we set up so Trainers can freely interact and have fun together."
"Trainers come to Pasio from all sorts of places..."
"We thought it would be helpful for team members and others that don't know each other too well to grow closer and become friends!"
"So we hope you can build some friendships with a lot of different Trainers here too, <player>!"

"Welcome! How can I help you today?"
  • When leaving

Special Event - Weather Alert
"Oh, <player>! I have something I need to tell you!"

"Would you be so kind as to help with the investigation, <player>?"
"There are rewards involved as well, of course! Please help out!"

"They cause all sorts of trouble by using Pokémon to steal things and carry out their awful plans."
"In light of safety, please be sure to keep an eye on your Pokémon and personal belongings."
"Also, please try to travel in groups as much as possible."
"*sigh* Just as we got Team Break under control, now this happens."
"I hope it's taken care of soon so everyone can finally be at ease."
Story Event - Shine a Gentle Light
  • Sad Ampharos
"I've looked her over, but it doesn't seem like there are any health issues."
"If there is a reason, it might be related to her feelings."
"To me, it seems she might be feeling a little isolated and sad because Pasio is a new environment for her."
"Maybe we need to lighten her mood?"
"Oh, a party! I think that's a wonderful idea."
"Yes! I'll be looking forward to it."
  • The Party Begins?
