Violet (Japanese: アヤメ Ayame) is a recurring character who appeared in the Pokémon anime. She is a Water-type Pokémon specialist and is the second oldest of Misty's sisters. She and her sisters, Daisy and Lily, are also the former Gym Leaders of the Cerulean Gym.

In the anime

Young Violet
Original series

Violet made her first appearance in The Water Flowers of Cerulean City. In The Misty Mermaid, it is stated that Violet writes the sisters' water shows; however, a later episode shows Daisy performing this task. She sometimes also plays the part of the mermaid as seen in Luvdisc is a Many Splendored Thing!.

In Gotta Catch Ya Later!, she left on a cruise with her sisters, leaving Misty to take temporary charge of the Gym.

Pokémon Chronicles

She made many more appearances along with Daisy and Violet in future episodes as well as in Pokémon Chronicles.

Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon

Violet, along with Daisy and Lily, reappeared in a fantasy during the Poké Problem segment of Alola, Kanto!, where the Spectacular Sisters ditched the Gym to go on a trip, leaving Misty in charge of everything. She reappeared again in the same capacity in Alola, Alola!, although Misty revealed she had Violet and the others take over Gym duties while she was in Alola.

Pokémon Journeys: The Series

Violet appeared in a fantasy in A Fated Face-Off!.


Much like Lily, she seems to tease Misty more often than Daisy. However, she truly loves Misty despite this; when Ash and Misty set out on their journey, she encourages Misty to become a strong Trainer so that she can become good at something.

Like her other sisters, she mainly cares about her looks. They demonstrated this by caring more about their hair than their Pokémon during an attack by Team Rocket. They also don't like losing to the challengers at their Gym and would rather just give away their Gym Badge instead of losing. Violet is also very childlike and carefree. During the water shows hosted by the Gym, she is shown to prefer playing girlish roles, whereas Lily plays the more boyish ones.
