Brianna (Japanese: ワカナ Wakana) is a minor recurring character who appeared in Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire. She is a Pokémon Coordinator.

Following the Wisteria Town Contest in Harley Rides Again, May received a letter from an anonymous sender. However, Brianna forgot to sign it and, as the letter came with a rose, May thought that the letter was from her rival Drew. May kept the letter until she met Brianna, who revealed that she was the sender, on Chrysanthemum Island shortly before another Contest in Spontaneous Combusken!.

Brianna first appeared in Spontaneous Combusken!, where she revealed that she was too nervous to face May in person, so she sent the letter instead. Her true motives were soon revealed by her crush on Drew. Brianna believed that the best way to get Drew's attention was to defeat May in a Contest. She did not let the subject drop and, after they both got through their Appeals, Brianna asked May about her feelings for Drew, causing May to blush and stutter that she hadn't thought about it much. After her Contest defeat to May in the finals, Drew assured Brianna that she was a good Coordinator, causing her to faint in May's arms.

Brianna reappeared in Thinning the Hoard!, where she was seen watching the Kanto Grand Festival from her home. Her home is shown to have various pictures of her, Drew, and May.
