Iono (Japanese: ナンジャモ Nanjyamo[1]) is an influencer and streamer who is the Gym Leader of Levincia's Gym, known officially as the Levincia Gym. She specializes in Electric-type Pokémon. She hands out the Electric Badge to Trainers who defeat her.

In the core series games

Iono in the "Iono Zone"

Iono hosts a livestream called "Iono Zone" (Japanese: ドンナモンジャTV Donnamonja TV) in Paldea.[2] She is known to stream her work as a Gym Leader, and prioritizes viewer numbers and engagement on her channel;[3] as such, she never misses the chance to have a collaboration with another popular figure. However, her popularity is so massive to the point she has trouble casually going on picnics with her Pokémon due to all the attention she attracts.[4] To add to her charm, Iono also has the habit of mixing languages together and moving animatedly.

In addition to the Gym Badge, Iono gives out TM048 (Volt Switch) after defeating her.

Pokémon Horizons: The Series

Iono first appeared in HZ015, where she was is revealed to be friends with Dot. Iono was contacted by Dot to help her find Liko, who was missing. Taking the opportunity, Iono asked Dot if she wanted to do a collaboration in her live show as Nidothing to better spread the word. With the help of Iono, Dot was able to locate Liko in Levincia. Iono then turned the search into a game of tag and later congratulated Roy for finding Liko and thanked Liko for her help in making her stream a hit.


On hand
Bellibolt is Iono's only known Pokémon. It was seen by her side when Dot called her.

Main article: Iono (Paldea Evolved 185)

Iono was introduced as a Supporter card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English Scarlet & Violet Series (the Japanese Scarlet & Violet Era). It was first released in the Japanese Clay Burst expansion and the English Paldea Evolved expansion, with artwork by Sanosuke Sakuma. An ultra rare version with artwork by the same artist, and a special illustration rare version of the card with artwork by kirisAki were released in the same sets. It forces both players to shuffle their hands and put it on the bottom of their decks, before drawing cards for each of their remaining Prize cards.


  • Iono's Japanese Gym Leader title is エレキトリカル★ストリーマー.[8]
  • Iono's hairclips resemble two Magnemite. The screws above her sternum and on her boots resemble those found on Magnemite's body. Despite this, no member from the Magnemite line is ever included in her team. However she can trade a Magnemite to the player in the Indigo Disk DLC.
  • Iono renames her challenge "Where in Levincia Is Mr. Walksabout?", possibly referencing the edutainment series Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?.
  • Iono's Electrode knows Sucker Punch, despite being unable to learn the move in Generation IX at the time of Scarlet and Violet's release.
