Professor Ivy's assistants, also known collectively as the triplets (Japanese: ウチキド博士の助手の三つ子Dr. Uchikido's triplet assistants) are three women who live with Professor Ivy on Valencia Island and help with her research work. Individually, their names are Charity (Japanese: ミナミMinami), Hope (Japanese: ツナミTsunami) and Faith (Japanese: コナミKonami). Their individual English names were mentioned only in Tracey West's anime novelizations.
The triplets appeared in Poké Ball Peril. Though they are useful at research assistance, the three women are not particularly good at domestic duties. Their need for someone to handle the cooking and cleaning around the house reminded Brock of his family, which is one reason why he stayed behind as an assistant for Professor Ivy instead of traveling with Ash through the Orange Islands.
