Cara Liss (Japanese: ウカッツ Ukattsu) is a mysterious researcher in the Galar region. She acts as the fossil reviver in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

In the core series games

Cara Liss can be found on Route 6 in Galar where she has a revival machine that can bring Fossil Pokémon found in Galar back to life. Cara Liss requires two Fossils to be revived at once, one of each of the head and body Fossils. Because none of the fossils belong to the same creature, each revived Pokémon is an artificial hybrid created from the parts of two separate creatures.

Cara Liss in Pokémon the Series

Cara Liss appeared in A Pinch of This, a Pinch of That!, when Ash, Goh, and Chloe met her and her research partner Bray Zenn in the Wild Area. The group dug up some Fossils together, which were intended to be restored into a Dracozolt and Arctovish. However, Cara Liss and Bray Zenn mixed up their Fossilized Drake and Fossilized Dino, thus creating a Dracovish and an Arctozolt instead. After getting a satisfactory amount of data out of the two Fossil Pokémon, the two researchers let Ash and Goh take the revived Pokémon with them.

Cara Liss in Pokémon Adventures

Pokémon Adventures

Cara Liss debuted in PASS38. She first appeared waking up an unconscious Marnie at Route 6, having saved the latter from a Galarian Zapdos. As compensation for being saved, Marnie was forced to assist Cara Liss with her Fossil research. With some Fossils they excavated, Cara Liss used her restoration to machine to create an Arctovish and a Dracozolt. Their work was interrupted when the skies suddenly turned black, a sign that the Darkest Day had returned.

In PASS40, Marnie decided to assist her friends stop the Darkest Day and promised to repay her debt another time. Confident that Marnie would willingly return and give up being a Trainer to become a researcher, Cara Liss stated the debt had been repaid. Marnie immediately refuted these claims and ran off, much to Cara Liss's disappointment.

Cara Liss was introduced as a Supporter card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game as one of the S-P Promotional cards, with artwork by Hitoshi Ariga, available in promotional packs awarded to Japanese participants of Pokémon Card Gym tournaments starting July 2020. It later debuted in English in the Vivid Voltage expansion.

Cara Liss allows the player to search their deck for up to two Rare Fossil cards and put them on their bench.

Trivia

  • Cara Liss and the hybrid Pokémon she creates from fossils may be based on early paleontologists who would combine mismatched bones to produce new "discoveries", such as in the Bone Wars.
  • In the anime, it is suggested that the Pokédex entries for the four Pokémon Cara Liss can create are made up by her and others based on their theories of what the species were capable of.
