Verity (Japanese: マコト Makoto) is a major character who appeared in I Choose You!. She is a vibrant and tomboyish Pokémon Trainer who seems to enjoy adventures. She is also one of Ash's traveling companions in that movie.

In the movies

A resident of Twinleaf Town in the Sinnoh region, Verity is the daughter of a strong, famous Trainer. However, she felt that she could not live up to her mother's expectations. Because of this, she decided to start her journey in the Kanto region after getting her first partner Pokémon, a Piplup.

Verity was first seen at a Pokémon Center, where her Piplup was being treated. After receiving it back from Nurse Joy, she noticed a wanted poster regarding Team Rocket. She later raced out after hearing about a nearby sighting of Entei.

Verity traveled along with Ash and Sorrel to Mount Tensei, where Ho-Oh lives.
