In the anime

Ash and his friends first met Maizie while looking for Kurt around Azalea Town in A Shadow of a Drought, though her name was not revealed. She pointed out Kurt's house before directing the group to the Slowpoke Well, where Kurt rushed off to investigate some suspicious noises.

In Going Apricorn!, Maizie took Ash and his friends on a tour through the Apricorn-forested mountains near Azalea Town. There, she helped them pick out ripe Apricorns for Kurt to turn into Poké Balls for them. During the group's second confrontation with Team Rocket, Brock caught a Pineco with his newly received Fast Ball after Maizie told him to do so.

Maizie appeared at the end of Gettin' the Bugs Out, where she gave both Ash and Misty a Lure Ball and Brock a Heavy Ball on Kurt's behalf. She thanked the group for delivering the GS Ball, adding that Kurt will continue his investigation into its mechanics.


Maizie is being mentored by her grandfather Kurt and shares a close bond with him. Despite her innocent appearance, Maizie can be loud in order to take charge of a situation, as seen when she stopped Ash from entering Kurt's workshop while the latter was working. Her knowledge and respect for Apricorn Poké Ball-making was showcased in Going Apricorn!, where she helped Ash and his friends to select ripe Apricorns. In addition to her knowledge on Apricorns, she appears to be environmentally-conscious, and noted that the trees help sustain the Pokémon and mountains.

She is well aware of her grandfather's hard work and runs errands on Kurt's behalf to allow him to focus.

Maizie in the Pokémon Adventures manga

Although Maizie's name was never stated in Pokémon Adventures, she is still confirmed to have the same name as in the anime.[1]


Gold, Silver & Crystal arc

As soon as Gold met her and Kurt, Maizie told him that she wanted a Friend Ball to capture a cute kind of Pokémon in the mountains, but that Kurt wouldn't make one for her.

Kurt explained that once, his ancestors were the only ones capable of creating Poké Balls until companies started to mass produce them. Kurt said that Gold wasn't experienced enough to use his special Balls, something that annoyed Gold.

Kurt made a Friend Ball for Gold, and Maizie and Gold went up to the mountains and found the Pokémon Maizie was after, a Teddiursa. Unfortunately, a wild Ursaring stepped into defend its cub.

Luckily, Silver was after an Ursaring with a custom Heavy Ball of his own - and together the two boys were able to use their custom Poké Balls to capture the two bear Pokémon.

Gold gave Maizie the Teddiursa, saying that from now on, she would be her special partner.

Later, in his attack on Indigo Plateau, the Masked Man held Maizie hostage to force Kurt to turn over the design plans for the GS Ball.

Emerald arc

Both Kurt and Maizie made a cameo appearance in Epilogue on a ship to the Battle Frontier.


Gold caught Teddiursa for Maizie with a Friend Ball to prove that he was a capable-enough Trainer to handle them. When he went off to catch her, he ran into Silver, who was catching the father Ursaring. Both Pokémon were caught with precise aim using Gold's billiards pole, and Gold gave Teddiursa to Maizie. She is level 13 and has a Naive nature.

Teddiursa's known moves are Fury Swipes, Leer*, Lick*, and Scratch*.
