(Japanese: ユウコ Yuuko) is a recurring character in the Pokémon Adventures manga.
Yuuko debuts in the Black 2 & White 2 chapter as a student in the Aspertia City Trainers' School. Yuuko is first seen with Yuki and Mayu greeting Lack-Two as he heads to class. When Lack-Two, Leo, and Hugh are punished by the new teacher, Cheren for disrupting the class, Yuuko defends Lack-Two by blaming Hugh for everything. Later, Cheren has the class split into two gendered groups and has them battle each other. Yuuko is eventually defeated, but congratulates the new student, Whi-Two, for winning the girls side and obtaining a Pokédex.
After an attempt to try and get Whi-Two closer to him fails, Lack-Two returns to the school while everyone is participating in a Berry planting class. Seeing Lack-Two carry Whi-Two like a princess shocks Yuuko and the rest of the class.
Yuuko later travels with the class to Pokéstar Studios on a class trip. She, Yuki, Mayu, and Whi-Two browse the area and wonder what kind of movie they should participate in. Although reluctant, Whi-Two is assisted by Sabrina, who uses a Spoon of Destiny to pick a movie for her. After leaving, Yuuko and the others realize that Sabrina is actually a famous actress. Once the trip ended, Yuuko and the other girls excitedly wonder what to do for the upcoming culture festival at their school. The girls' chattering annoys Hugh, who questions why they bother attending school if they don't focus on getting stronger. Yuuko berates Hugh's abrasive personality, and states that she feels sorry for his younger sister for having such a bad brother. Hearing this infuriates Hugh into attacking the girls with his Vibrava before being stopped by Leo. Yuuko and the others angrily leave as they hope that Hugh gets expelled.
Here is a listing of Yuuko's Pokémon.
