Ella works at the "Game Store" in Pokémon Trading Card Game Online. She greets new players at the entrance of her parent's shop with Zach. When players initially begin the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online, she and Zach lead players through an initial series of Tutorial matches. Afterwards, she can be faced in the Gold League in the Trainer Challenge for a total of one match.

Official Bio

"Ella's parents own a game store and encouraged her love of TCGs. She now works with Zach at her parents' store, running Leagues and teaching kids to do magic tricks. She's proud of how many of her store's regulars have gone on to win big tournaments, but is also a little envious."

Gold League

After defeating Penelope in the ninth round of the Gold League's playoffs, players move on to face Ella in round ten. She uses a Fighting Fighting deck. After defeating Ella, players move on to face Mick in the semifinals.


  • Before the game: "Hey there, <player>. I've enjoyed seeing your progress in this league!"
  • At the start of the game: "They say winning isn't everything. But it sure is nice! Especially in a tournament! Wishing you good luck, amigo!"
  • After winning: "Your face is looking mighty pale. Or should I say Colorless? Tee-hee! Well played, <player>. Let's rematch, okay?"
  • After losing: "Well done. You knocked the stuffing out of my Deck! Go for the Gold. I believe in you!"
