Iono in the "Iono Zone"

Iono hosts a livestream called "Iono Zone" (Japanese: ドンナモンジャTV Donnamonja TV) in Paldea.[1] She is known to stream her work as a Gym Leader, and prioritizes viewer numbers and engagement on her channel;[2] as such, she never misses the chance to have a collaboration with another popular figure. However, her popularity is so massive to the point she has trouble casually going on picnics with her Pokémon due to all the attention she attracts.[3] To add to her charm, Iono also has the habit of mixing languages together and moving animatedly.

In addition to the Gym Badge, Iono gives out TM048 (Volt Switch) after defeating her.

Iono was introduced as a Supporter card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English Scarlet & Violet Series (the Japanese Scarlet & Violet Era). It was first released in the Japanese Clay Burst expansion and the English Paldea Evolved expansion, with artwork by Sanosuke Sakuma. A Full Art version with artwork by the same artist, and a Special Illustration Rare version of the card with artwork by kirisAki were released in the same sets. It forces both players to shuffle their hands and put it on the bottom of their decks, before drawing cards for each of their remaining Prize cards.


  • Iono's Japanese Gym Leader title is エレキトリカル★ストリーマー.[6]
  • Iono's hairclips resemble two Magnemite. The screws above her sternum and on her boots resemble those found on Magnemite's body. Despite this, no member from the Magnemite line is ever included in her team.
  • Iono renames her challenge "Where in Levincia Is Mr. Walksabout?", possibly referencing the edutainment series Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?.
  • Iono's Electrode knows Sucker Punch, despite being unable to learn the move in Generation IX at the time of Scarlet and Violet's release.
