Lucy (Japanese: アザミ Azami) is the Frontier Brain and law-keeper of the Battle Frontier's Battle Pike. Her costume is made to look like a Seviper, her signature Pokémon. She is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Pike Queen (Japanese: チューブクイーン Tube Queen).

In the core series games

Lucy "trampled flowers and braved storms" to reach her position. She is encountered at two and ten consecutive wins at the Battle Pike for the silver and gold Luck Symbol respectively. She isn't one for idle chatter, preferring to go right into battle. When she's defeated, she prefers her opponent to hurry and move along.

Lucy in the anime

Lucy appeared in Queen of the Serpentine!. Before battling Ash, she rescued his Pikachu from Team Rocket with her Seviper, defeating Jessie's own Seviper in the process.

During the battle, Ash started off by using his Donphan against Seviper. For a while, Lucy seemed to have the upper hand despite the type disadvantage. However, Ash managed to turn the tables on the Fang Snake Pokémon by using Donphan's Rollout to counter Seviper's Flamethrower, knocking it out.

Lucy then sent out her Milotic, which easily defeated Donphan with a single Hydro Pump attack. Left with no other choice, Ash decided to use Pikachu. However, again, despite the type disadvantage, Lucy almost managed to defeat the Electric-type with a barrage of Hydro Pumps and Twisters. She even used Milotic's paralyzed state and had it strike Pikachu with a powered up Facade. Ash finally managed to defeat Milotic and win the match after he had Pikachu jump inside one of Milotic's Twisters to land a spinning Volt Tackle.

She reappeared in a flashback in A Pyramiding Rage!.


In the anime, Lucy is very different from her game incarnation, personality-wise, and appears to be friendlier. She allowed Ash to challenge her, even though the Battle Pike was closed that particular day, and also congratulated him on his victory. Her gentle attitude seems to be due to her crush on Brock. Lucy also doesn't tend to speak much, with her assistant Barbara having to speak for her most of the time.

Lucy has a remarkable preference for serpentine Pokémon and uses their tails as the perfect offensive strategy. Scott revealed that Lucy never taught her Pokémon defensive moves. Instead, she allows her Pokémon to take direct attacks from the opponent before retaliating with her own. Lucy seems to have a fetish for squinted eyes, which is reflected in her crush on Brock (and, to a lesser extent, the Pokémon that she keeps at home).


This listing is of Lucy's known Pokémon in the anime:

Main article: Lucy's Seviper

Lucy's signature Pokémon is Seviper. It appeared for the first time fighting Jessie's Seviper, and it later battled Ash's Donphan.

It reappeared in a flashback in A Pyramiding Rage!.

Pokémon at home
In addition to the Pokémon Lucy used in battle, she also has many other Pokémon at home. Her Pokémon at home include Abra, Snorlax, Cyndaquil, Swinub, Makuhita, and Skitty. All the Pokémon have squinted eyes, which influenced Lucy to later develop an interest in Brock. Their battle experience is unknown, as it seems they are only kept as pets.

None of their moves are known.

Emerald arc

Lucy is one of the seven Trainers hired by Scott to be a Frontier Brain at the Battle Frontier. Lucy is first seen at the Frontier's opening ceremony, where she participates in a demonstration battle alongside Spenser. Though the battle ends in an easy victory, the ceremony is interrupted by Emerald, who announces that he wishes to conquer the Battle Frontier. The press mistakenly report the incident as allowing an ordinary Trainer to take part in the Battle Frontier before it officially opens a week later. The Frontier Brains decide to use this assumption as free publicity and allow Emerald to challenge the Battle Frontier under the condition that he completes it before it officially opens.

Lucy is the second Frontier Brain Emerald challenges in his quest. With a combination of luck and battling skill, Emerald manages to reach Lucy and defeat her, earning himself the Luck Symbol.

Later, while Emerald is challenging the Battle Pyramid, Noland is attacked by an unknown assailant and several rental Pokémon are stolen. After Noland is taken to a hospital, the other Frontier Brains begin to suspect Emerald as the culprit. They head to the Battle Pyramid to confront Emerald and find him after having defeated Brandon. When they ask him about what happened, Emerald reveals that he did not attack Noland and is actually after the Mythical Pokémon Jirachi. The Frontier Brains find Emerald's explanation suspicious, but decide to follow him into Artisan Cave, where Jirachi is currently located at. Upon arriving, everyone is attacked by a horde of wild Smeargle while Emerald continues inside to find Jirachi. After the Frontier Brains get past the Smeargle, they meet up with Emerald, who has managed to find Jirachi. Emerald attempts to capture Jirachi, but is attacked by Guile Hideout, the actual culprit who attacked Noland. When Jirachi runs off, Emerald attempts to pursue it, only to be attacked by the rental Pokémon Guile had stolen. Lucy, Brandon, Spenser, and Tucker all try to attack Guile to avenge Noland, but are easily defeated. Eventually, Jirachi escapes, forcing Guile to leave to continue his pursuit of it. Injured from the battle, everyone decides to return to the Battle Frontier. When they meet up with Scott again, he reveals that he was aware of Guile and Emerald's true mission the entire time. Scott states that he withheld the information from the Frontier Brains to help them get stronger as they still would have lost even if they had known of Guile beforehand.

The next day, Lucy assists the other Frontier Brains in ushering people to the Battle Dome. During the tournament, Guile appears and manages to capture Jirachi. Guile uses the rental Pokémon to the attack innocent bystanders and heads to the Battle Tower to make his wish. Once he arrives at the Battle Tower, Guile uses Jirachi to wish for a gigantic Kyogre made of seawater to flood the entire Battle Frontier. Lucy and the other Frontier Brains work together to get civilians to safety and fight off Guile's rental Pokémon while Emerald and the other Pokédex holders fight Guile. Eventually Emerald and the Pokédex holders manage to defeat Guile and destroy the gigantic Kyogre monster. The day after, an injured Lucy and the other Frontier Brains congratulate Emerald for the hard work he put into saving everyone.

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire arc

Lucy and the other Hoenn Frontier Brains battle and defeat the Admins of Neo Team Magma and Neo Team Aqua, who had interfered in the launch of a rocket that was made to stop the meteoroid threatening to destroy the world. Later, Lucy and the other Hoenn Frontier Brains are called to Sootopolis City to assist in stopping the meteoroid.


The following is the listing for Lucy's Pokémon in the Pokémon Adventures manga:

Main article: Lucy's Seviper

Seviper is Lucy's first known Pokémon. She was used to battle a Swalot and Electrode in the opening ceremony of the Battle Frontier. By exploiting her Shed Skin, Seviper ended the battle in a victory. In Emerald's Battle Pike challenge, Seviper was the first Pokémon sent out to battle before being switched. Eventually, she was the last of Lucy's team to be defeated, giving Emerald the victory. At the Artisan Cave, she was used to battle Guile, only for her attacks to be easily countered. In the Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter, she was seen helping Lucy fight the Admins of Neo Team Magma and Neo Team Aqua.

Debut Swanky Showdown with Swalot
Milotic is Lucy's second known Pokémon. She was the third Pokémon Lucy used in her battle against Emerald. She fought Emerald's Starmie, but was quickly defeated by a Thunderbolt before Starmie fainted from its status ailment. Later, she was used to take Lucy to the Artisan Cave. During the Battle Dome tournament, she helped usher in visitors to their seats.

Milotic's known moves are Mirror Coat, Recover*, Ice Beam*, and Surf*, and her Ability is Marvel Scale.

Debut Moving Past Milotic
Shuckle is Lucy's third known Pokémon. She was the second Pokémon Lucy used in her battle against Emerald. She was used against Emerald's Starmie and managed to poison it with Toxic but was quickly defeated by its powerful Surf.

Shuckle's known moves are Protect, Toxic, Sandstorm*, and Rock Slide*, and her Ability is Sturdy.

Debut Moving Past Milotic

Pokémon Battle Frontier

Lucy in Pokémon Battle Frontier

Lucy's only appearance was in The Predestined Battle!, where she was Enta's next challenger after he defeated Spenser.

Lucy watched from the shadows when Enta battled Spenser. After the battle, Enta's Zangoose popped out of its Poké Ball, agitated. This gave Lucy a chance to show herself. She had a talk with Enta regarding his strength while her Seviper's presence made Zangoose even angrier. Lucy gets upset at Enta when he calls her middle aged and heads over to the Battle Pike. This makes Enta decide to challenge the Battle Pike next.

After arriving, Enta is welcomed by Lucy and their challenge begins. Once again, Enta called her middle aged and she got upset from this comment. During the battle, when Seviper and Zangoose were up, she explained to Enta about the bitter rivalry between the two, making Enta realize Zangoose's feelings. With Zangoose feeling much calmer, Enta was able to defeat Lucy and win his sixth Frontier Symbol. After the battle, Lucy commented on his talent and congratulated him. She then told him that the final Frontier Brain was none other than Anabel. This made Enta excited for his battle with Anabel.


Main article: Lucy's Seviper

Seviper was first seen when Lucy went up to Enta. Later, it was used during her battle with Enta and its rival and enemy, Zangoose.

Debut The Predestined Battle!
Shuckle was the first Pokémon Lucy used against Enta. It battled with Enta's Vulpix as the first opponent but the outcome between the two wasn't shown. It was defeated later on when both sides were down to one Pokémon.

None of Shuckle's moves are known.

Debut The Predestined Battle!
  • Lucy has access to a third Pokémon as the battle she had with Enta required three Pokémon.


  • In the anime, Lucy is one of the few females who have fallen in love with Brock. She claims it is because his eyes remind her of an Abra and some of her other Pokémon that share the same squinted eye feature.
  • Lucy's character design resembles her signature Pokémon, Seviper, with the two sharing a color scheme.
  • While Lucy doesn't appear in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, an NPC in the Battle Maison will mention that scouting for the Pike Queen has been completed for the upcoming Battle Frontier.
