In the anime

Ann and Liko

Ann first appeared in HZ001. She met Liko when she arrived at the room they were sharing together. After getting the Pokédex installed on her Rotom Phone, she selected Oshawott to be her starter Pokémon. The next day, Ann had her first ever Pokémon battle, using Oshawott to battle against Liko's Sprigatito, which was soon called off. One night, Ann spotted Liko looking at her grandmother's pendant and asked about it.

After Liko noticed how close she and Oshawott were compared to how close she was with her Sprigatito, Ann gave her advice. When the time came for a school break, Ann headed home, leaving Liko at the academy.

Ann reappeared in HZ003, when she spoke to Liko after she had joined the Rising Volt Tacklers.

In HZ008, Ann spoke to Liko when she attended a class online. During the conversation, the two talked about the live stream that Nidothing would do in a few hours.

In HZ021, she contacted Liko and revealed that she had acquired her second Pokémon in the form of her Sandshrew.


Ann and Oshawott

Ann is an energetic girl who is very extroverted. She has a habit of being messy, but is shown to be considerate, keeping her mess to herself. She expresses concern and encourages her friend Liko to try and understand her partner Pokémon.

In HZ021, Ann revealed that she wants to be a Trainer that focuses on battles, while Liko was still figuring out her path at the time.
