Cerah (Japanese: サーラ Sara) is a character of the day who appeared in Getting a Jump on the Competition!.

A young Cerah

Cerah was first seen doing a jump on a PokéSled with her Alolan Ninetales, only to discover that Lillie and Snowy were directly in their path. Fortunately, Ninetales used Aurora Veil, and they were able to avoid hitting them. When Ash and his classmates ran up to her, she indirectly informed them about the Pokémon Sled Jump Games before departing.

Cerah approached the group again during the tournament and learned that Lillie, Ash, and Kiawe wanted to participate. As a result, she provided the trio with her childhood jump track so they could practice, and even demonstrated a move for them. When she later realized that Lillie was fearful of continuing to practice, despite Snowy's willingness to continue, Cerah consoled her and revealed that, in her younger days, she wanted to learn how to PokéSled Jump, despite her mother wanting her to take piano lessons, after watching a friend. After she experienced a bad fall, she developed a fear of jumping. Fortunately for her, her then-Alolan Vulpix encouraged her to keep trying and she managed to overcome her fear. Cerah also gave Lillie instructions on how to have Snowy use Aurora Veil.

She and Ninetales later did an exhibition jump at the Pokémon Sled Jump Games. Following Lillie and Snowy's loss in the tournament, despite their impressive Aurora Veil, Cerah approached Lillie and reassured her that her frustrations are normal, and that they will turn into the drive needed to succeed.
