Asahi

History

Asahi first appeared in Advice to Goh!, when she contacted Gary on his Rotom Phone after receiving the feather of Moltres and awarded him a token with a Mew symbol.

She made her first in-person appearance in Leaping Toward the Dream!, where she explained to Ash and Goh how Project Mew operates, and gave Goh his mission of catching an Alolan Ninetales on Mt. Coronet. After Goh had succeeded in the mission, Asahi congratulated him on his success and informed him that he was now qualified to start taking on proper Trial Missions.

Asahi reappeared in JN080. She was first seen monitoring Ninetales after returning it to its natural habitat. Shortly thereafter she discussed with Tsurugi about Goh's future in Project Mew.

Later, when Goh and Ash were surrounded by Pokémon poacher Nito and his henchmen, Asahi intervened and saved them using her Rapid Strike Style Urshifu. Once everything was resolved, Asahi handed Goh his first Project Mew Token and encouraged him to continue giving his best.

Character

Unlike Tsurugi, Asahi is far more welcoming and friendly, encouraging Goh to give his best. In battle her most friendly posture is left aside, Asahi is quite confident of her abilities, even choosing several opponents for battle and disqualifying the Pokémon Hunters as soon as she arrives at the place.
