Calista (Japanese: ミココ Mikoko) is a character of the day who appeared in Xatu the Future. She is a thirteenth-generation Xatu prophetess from a small village between Ecruteak City and Mahogany Town. Calista typically announced the weather forecast.
Ash, his friends and Team Rocket fell through one of Team Rocket's own pitfall traps and discovered Calista's civilization. Calista rushed passed them on her way to her next prediction ceremony and urged everyone to follow her. She predicted that it would be a sunny day, but rain began to speckle. This caused Calista a lot of concern and she rushed into her secret weather station. She scoured through her data again, but was unable to disregard her Xatu's prediction that the day of a great flood was arriving tomorrow. Calista faced a dilemma, because she was unsure whether she should alert the town or not. In the end, she told the town that the Xatu had predicted a terrible storm.
As a result of the prediction, the villagers threw all of their belongings toward the Xatu and then fled. The Xatu then Teleported Calista, Ash, and his friends out of danger. Calista released the Xatu and then became a weather reporter for a TV station.
| Calista has three Xatu which can predict the weather. She refers to them by the names Xatu One, Xatu Two and Xatu Three, who is considerably older than the other two. Their predictive abilities helped Calista in her position as a prophetess. Calista is able to translate the Xatu's wing movements into future predictions, and she uses a pair of fans to communicate with them all.
The Xatu predicted a sunny day, and Calista revealed the prediction to her loyal followers. However, after it began raining, Calista began to have doubts in both her and the Xatu's fortune-telling abilities. Later she tried again to predict the weather, and this time the Xatu predicted that a flood would occur, and the area was subsequently evacuated.
Suddenly, Team Rocket revealed their scheme, Delibird threw three Present attacks at the Xatu, which healed them. Delibird got annoyed and tried again, still healing the Xatu. It tried once again, but this time sent Team Rocket blasting off.
The Xatu foretold of another prediction, and informed Calista that their fortune-telling abilities are to be considered as guidance, while every individual must make their own destiny. Calista was grateful for the wise message. One final pattern translation revealed that Xatu would Teleport away before the disaster was due to hit, but they assured Calista and the group of their safety. As predicted, the Xatu Teleported everyone to safety before the giant flood swept through the area. Calista and the group were relieved to be safe, while the Xatu effectively left to continue their fortune-telling elsewhere.
Xatu's only known move is Teleport.
