Description A strong—willed veteran with a penchant for battling, this member of the Elite Four tries to wear opponents down. She seems to have some history with Professor Oak.

Agatha (Japanese: キクコ Kikuko) is a Pokémon Trainer in Pokémon Masters EX, based on the character of the same name in the core series. She forms a sync pair with Gengar, which is capable of Mega Evolving. This sync pair was first made available since the game release.

Agatha also forms a sync pair with her Arbok. This pair is available through a limited Variety sync pair scout beginning on May 7, 2023. This pair can be raised to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX since it first released, though this pair lacks an EX style.
