In the anime



Chloe and her family

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.

Pokémon Journeys: The Series

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, but 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 JN020, 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.


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.

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.


Chloe's Yamper
Yamper is Chloe's only known Pokémon. It typically stays at home or at the Cerise Laboratory while Chloe goes to school. Yamper was first seen waiting in front of the Institute to greet its Trainer on her way home from school, but it met with Ash and Pikachu instead. Yamper gave the overly-curious Ash a jolt, but greeted Pikachu amicably with a lick on his cheek. Afterwards, it saw its Trainer, who was confused by the scene, and followed her home.

In Best Friend...Worst Nightmare!, Yamper helped Ash and Goh look for the Gengar haunting the Laboratory, but it soon stopped to greet Chloe. Gengar soon attacked Chloe, but Yamper jumped in to take the hit for her, getting hurt in the process. Professor Cerise tried to get Yamper to fight back, but he discovered it was too focused on protecting Chloe to hear him. It was only able to fight back when Chloe gathered her courage and told Yamper to use Spark herself.

According to Parker, Yamper won't accept any food unless it comes from Chloe, and it likes her the most despite her somewhat aloof attitude.

Yamper's only known move is Spark.
