History

Pre-series

Young Bea

From a very young age Bea learned the technique of Karate from Galar with her father, since that age, she was very hardworking and with a great talent for it. At that time she met Chuck who trained with his father in the same martial art.

When she was older, Bea went on a journey through various regions in search of challenging other Fighting-type trainers like Korrina. This earned her a high reputation and a high ranking in the current World Coronation Series season.

In Pokémon Journeys: The Series

Bea made her debut in Solitary and Menacing!. She first battled the Karate Master at the Fighting Dojo in Saffron City and won. Soon after, she was challenged to a World Coronation Series battle by Ash and had a two-on-two battle with him. She used her Hawlucha and Grapploct to battle Farfetch'd and Riolu and emerged victorious without losing a single Pokémon, causing her rank to go up.

During a flashback to Bea battle against Ash in Making Battles in the Sand!, is revealed that this battle destabilized Ash’s emotional. This forces Ash to look for new alternatives so that he can battle Bea again.

Bea eventually manages to grow in the rankings until she reaches position 193, leaving her way to Ultra Class closer and closer.

In Octo-Gridlock at the Gym!, it's shown that Bea was training at the Cianwood City with Chuck when she received a challenge from Ash who wanted a rematch, despite remembering the previous battle, Bea did not remember Ash's name. Bea accepted his challenge, using her Hitmontop and Grapploct to battle Pikachu and Riolu. Although both sides do their best, the battle ends in a draw. Later, Chuck offers a table of sweets to Ash, Bea and Goh, during which time Ash and Bea declare their goal of winning the championship.

Bea and Ash

Character

Bea has a strong and confident personality. While she shows proper discipline and etiquette in battle, Bea speaks frankly and directly, calling Korrina "weak" and pointing out Ash's openings as she sees them.

Extremely powerful, Bea was able to defeat other Fighting-type experts like Korrina and the Kanto Fighting Dojo Karate Master. Like Ash, Bea aims to win against Leon in the World Coronation Series, in order to prove herself as the strongest Trainer in the world. Despite being tough in battle, Bea has a more gentle side, like when she offered food to Pikachu and Riolu. Like her game counterpart, Bea also has a soft spot for sweets.

Pokémon

As revealed by the Karate Master in Solitary and Menacing!, Bea has a large team composed of several Pokémon of the Fighting-type. This is seen, during Bea's battles with Ash, where she uses different formations in the battles they have had.

Bea engages in her battles in a physical and brutal way. Bea also battles alongside her Pokémon in complete sync, so that they both repeat the moves that are used in the battle. Despite the tough appearance and stance, Bea's Pokémon appear to have a gentle spirit, eating the sweets that Chuck put on the table for the trainers and soon after, encouraging Riolu to do the same.

This listing is of Bea's known Pokémon in the anime:

On hand
Bea's Grapploct
Grapploct
Grapploct is Bea's first known Pokémon. Grapploct debuted in Solitary and Menacing!, where it was seen battling the Karate Master in the Fighting Dojo in Saffron City, where it defeated his Hitmonchan. It had also battled his Hitmonlee and won, as shown during a flashback. Bea then used Grapploct in her World Coronation Series match against Ash, where it went up against his Riolu. Despite Riolu putting up a tough fight, Grapploct eventually emerged victorious, causing Ash's rank to drop.

Grapploct reappeared in Octo-Gridlock at the Gym!, where it was battling Chuck's Poliwrath at the Cianwood Gym but the battle was called off when Ash arrived, requesting a rematch which Bea accepted. Grapploct was the second Pokémon used, going up against Pikachu after it had defeated Hitmontop. Despite Pikachu putting up a tough fight, Grapploct emerged victorious and battled Riolu once again. After putting up a tough fight, the battle saw both Pokémon go down, resulting in a draw.

Grapploct is a strong Pokémon, taking on many a tough opponent such as Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Riolu, and Pikachu, defeating them all and only drawing to Riolu during a rematch. Despite this, Grapploct is shown to have a soft side, as seen in JN039 where it encouraged Riolu to enjoy some food that Bea was offering it.

Grapploct's known moves are Detect, Close Combat, Liquidation, and Octolock.
