Angie (Japanese: アオイ Aoi) is a recurring character who appeared in Pokémon The Series: Diamond and Pearl. She is a Pokémon caretaker at the Solaceon Town Day Care, which is owned by her parents. She first appeared in Camping It Up!.


Angie debuted in Camping It Up! as one of the students of Professor Rowan's Summer Academy. Along with Ash, Dawn, and Brock, Angie was a member of the Red Team. Despite that, she developed a rivalry with Ash right from the start, when the two went to pick a Pokémon for the first activity. Not realizing that Angie is a girl, Ash ignored the "ladies first" custom and his manners angered Angie a little.

Angie with her friends

For the first activity, which involved bonding and training a rental Pokémon and then using it in battle against another student's Pokémon, Angie was assigned a Monferno. Angie initially had trouble dealing with the Playful Pokémon, but upon witnessing Ash's unorthodox training style, she had an idea on how to get along with Monferno. After spending some time with it, she faced off against Ash, who was using a Raichu. The two had a fierce battle, which ended in a tie.

During the events of Ghoul Daze!, Ash saved Angie from being sucked into the spirit world by a ghost girl, and from that point on, she developed a crush on him. In the next episode, she got embarrassed when Ash tried to shake hands with her and she ran away. She also blushed later in the same episode after Ash rescued her from falling off a cliff.

Angie and Ash competed fiercely during the Pokémon Triathlon. However, it was Ash who crossed the finish line first with her in close second. The night before they left the summer school, they vowed to meet each other again. It was also revealed that she has been at the Summer Academy several times before.

In If the Scarf Fits, Wear It!, it was revealed that her parents had gone on a business trip and left her in charge of the Solaceon Town Day Care. Angie was eager to impress her parents and ended up training a Lickitung a bit much, to the point of teaching it Rollout. This caused it to evolve into Lickilicky, something which goes against Day Care rules. Luckily for her, the Trainer of the Licking Pokémon was glad with the Evolution, as he did not have enough time to train and evolve his Pokémon.


Angie shares many personality traits with Ash, including a love of food and sleeping during class. She also developed a fierce rivalry with him, and both battled their respective Pokémon in training, resulting in a tie. Together, they also got reprimanded by Rowan and his aide several times for being troublemakers, usually because Angie said or did something to make Ash mad.

Angie was surprised when she discovered Ash's training style (encouraging a Pokémon after it had attacked him) and quickly adapted it into a form of training with her Monferno which, somewhat like Maylene, involved her dodging Monferno's Ember and Mach Punch attacks.


This listing is of Angie's known Pokémon in the anime:

On hand

Shinx is Angie's only known Pokémon. He went along with her to the Pokémon Summer Academy, where he spent much of the time outside of his Poké Ball. Shinx was originally used against Pikachu in a battle, which started when Angie and Ash got into a quarrel. However, like their Trainers, Shinx and Pikachu soon became friends.

In Up Close and Personable!, Shinx got hypnotized by the light from a wild Lumineon and wandered off. Ash and his friends helped Angie to get Shinx back.

Shinx also helps Angie out at the Solaceon Day Care Center.

Shinx's known moves are Spark, Thunder Fang, Crunch, and Quick Attack.

Monferno was the Pokémon Angie selected for the first day of the Pokémon Summer Academy. Students were supposed to train up the Pokémon they'd selected and battle with them at the end of the day, which proved difficult, as Monferno had a bad attitude and refused to listen to Angie as well as getting into scuffles with other Pokémon. Eventually, Angie gained its respect and it battled hard against the Pokémon Ash had selected, a Raichu. However, it ended in a draw.

Monferno's known moves are Ember, Fury Swipes, Flame Wheel, and Mach Punch.

Lickitung → Lickilicky
After the Pokémon Summer Academy, Angie was asked to watch over a Trainer's Lickitung by her parents as they were going away on a trip. Eager to impress her parents, Angie worked far too hard training Lickitung and taught it to use Rollout which caused it to evolve into a Lickilicky.

Knowing she'd be in big trouble for evolving another Trainer's Pokémon, and as Lickilicky refused to be kept inside its Poké Ball, Angie hid Lickilicky in a cave. However, Lickilicky escaped and people began believing it was a Scarf Monster due to the scarf Angie made it wear. Team Rocket attempted to capture it even after learning it wasn't a monster but Angie was able to expertly command Lickilicky and fought Team Rocket off. Although Angie's parents were upset with her for evolving Lickitung, its Trainer couldn't be happier about what had happened as he couldn't be bothered to evolve it himself. As a result, she avoided any punishment from her parents.

Lickilicky's known moves are Rollout, Wrap, and Slam.
