In the anime



A young Chloe

As seen in Enter Pikachu!, when she was six, Chloe invited her childhood friend Goh to attend Professor Oak's Pokémon Summer Camp with her. During their visit in Pallet Town, Chloe and Goh encountered the Mythical Pokémon, Mew. The two chased after the unknown Pokémon, but it eventually got away in the aftermath of a baby Kangaskhan rescue. Professor Oak later told them the Pokémon they saw was most likely the Mythical Pokémon Mew.

At one point, Chloe's family received a Yamper as a gift from Professor Cerise's friend in Galar. Yamper instantly took a liking to Chloe, but she initially hated him, eventually telling him to go away. When she overheard her parents talking about Yamper's disappearance, she became regretful of her words and sneaked out to look for him. While searching, she was scared by a group of Venonat, but Yamper appeared and scared the Bug Pokémon away. From this point on, Yamper grew even more attached to Chloe, accepting food or battle commands only from her, and Chloe also grew to like Yamper.

Chloe and her family

In Legend? Go! Friends? Go!, a few years later, during the opening of the Cerise Laboratory, Chloe found Ash passed out after Yamper knocked him down with an Electric attack. However, she discreetly left him lying on the stairs. She later formally introduced herself to Ash when she handed over schoolwork to Goh.

In Best Friend...Worst Nightmare!, the students in Chloe's class participated in an exercise where they discussed their dreams for the future. Chloe became frustrated when her classmates immediately assumed she wanted to be a Pokémon Professor purely because her father is one. She received encouragement from Talia, who told Chloe that she was still young and had plenty of time to decide what she wanted to do with her life. Later, Chloe returned to the laboratory only to find it under attack by a wild Gengar. By commanding Yamper to battle for the first time, Chloe successfully drove Gengar out of the building.

In Dreams Are Made of These!, Chloe accompanied Goh and some children during a Pokémon Orienteering competition. During the event, Goh and Chloe talked about the former's future and his goal to capture all of the Pokémon in the world.

In There's a New Kid in Town!, Chloe's family found an injured Pidove and let it recuperate at their house. Due to its attachment towards Chloe, Yamper became jealous of Pidove whenever Chloe gave it attention. Despite this, when Pidove was threatened by a wild Fearow, Yamper put his jealousy aside and teamed up with Chloe to battle and defeat the Beak Pokémon, forcing it to flee. Afterwards, Chloe and her family said farewell to Pidove after its Trainer came to the house to retrieve it.

In The Cuteness Quotient!, after receiving a call from Parker to help his friend Jinny, Chloe asked Ash and Goh to find out how Jinny could explore the beauty of her Feebas. To improve their skills, Jinny signed up for the Friendship Festival. While Ash and Goh trained the Pokémon, Chloe helped the girl on how to swim. Later, Chloe, Parker, Ash, and Goh traveled to Hoenn to watch Jinny participate in the competition.

Chloe appeared again in Restore and Renew!, where she went with Ash and Goh to the Pewter Museum of Science to work on a research project for school. Despite her initial reluctance, Chloe became motivated to join the search for fossils at the museum after a passionate lecture from the museum's curator.

During the Pokémon Grand Eating Contest in Crowning the Chow Crusher!, Chloe is encouraged by Chrysa and her father to attend the event, initially reluctant, her perception and enthusiasm about the competition grows as the competition progresses. When Chloe watches Goh's Skwovet evolve into Greedent, she finally joins the crowd celebrating Goh's victory.

In To Train, or Not to Train!, Chloe was attending school alongside Goh when she noticed Yamper barking outside. Chloe went out to investigate to find Yamper was helping to hide an Eevee from two people. Thinking they were bad people, Chloe helped protect it, only to encounter Team Rocket who had captured the Pokémon belonging to her classmates. Chloe commanded Yamper to attack and with help from Eevee was able to defeat Pelipper. Later, Chloe learnt the people after Eevee were lab assistants at a Research Center regarding Eevee and its evolutions. They were taking Eevee back with them when Eevee indicated it wanted to stay with Chloe. Goh gave Chloe one of his Poké Balls which she used to catch Eevee. Later, her dad gave her a pink Rotom Phone.

Haruhi and Chloe

In JN079, Chloe accompanied Ash and Goh to the Johto region where they visited the Eclipse Castle. Whilst there, Chloe ran into Haruhi who was her doppelgänger. They changed clothes, only for Chloe to get kidnapped by Katsuki who mistook her for Haruhi. After being found by Ash and Goh, Chloe battled Katsuki alongside Haruhi and they were able to defeat him.


Chloe is overly cautious and takes a realistic approach to life. She finds Goh's confidence and big ideas to be irritating, and often reminds her friend to mind his manners. She appears distant and indifferent to others, as seen when she tends to ignore Ash, although she would gradually open up and become more friendly towards him. Although reserved and aloof, Chloe is very protective of her friends. When two girls made fun of Jinny, she became so angry that she wanted to fight them in person.

Chloe's aloofness appears to stem from her own uncertainty of what goals she wants to pursue, and she is bothered by her classmates assuming she will follow her father's footsteps and become a Pokémon researcher, and that she must be a good battler. After a conversation with her mother and working together with Yamper to defeat an attacking Gengar, Chloe appears to grow closer to her Pokémon and become more certain of herself.

As a child in There's a New Kid in Town!, Chloe used to be jealous of Yamper as a new household pet due to him getting more attention from her parents than her. When she led him to run away from home, she felt guilty and went out to find him at night. Eventually, she came to like him.

As time passed, Chloe became more and more involved with the Pokémon universe, to the point that she personally asked Goh and Ash for help with the school's work on the Fossil Pokémon or being late for school while paying attention to explaining her father about the Pokémon world in Getting More Than You Battled For!.
