Miki (Japanese: ミキ Miki) is a character of the day who appeared in Hot Matches!.

Miki had been training her Skarmory in the harsh mountains between Azalea Town and Goldenrod City for several weeks prior to meeting Ash and his friends. She had defeated many Trainers, but was very eager to battle Fire-type Pokémon in the hopes of teaching her Skarmory to overcome its type disadvantage. Brock found Miki to be very pretty, but Miki mistook him as a Trainer and thus challenged him, telling him to use a Fire-type. Skarmory successfully defeated Brock's Vulpix and later Ash's Cyndaquil. However, Ash believed that Cyndaquil could become stronger than Skarmory was if it could get its flame lit when needed. Over dinner Miki revealed that she follows an intense training schedule, and Ash went on to adapt it to help his Cyndaquil become stronger and finally control its flame.

Miki decided to have a rematch against Ash to see how well his training had progressed, and Cyndaquil proved to be powerful enough to defeat Skarmory. Miki complimented Ash on his training, and she was inspired to start her own journey and take on the Johto League Gym Leaders.

Miki's Skarmory
Miki has a very strong Skarmory which she uses to battle Fire-type Pokémon, in order to train it against its type disadvantages. Skarmory defeated Brock's Vulpix, knocking it out with Steel Wing. Miki then told Brock to send out another Fire type, but Ash interrupted and sent out his Cyndaquil. Skarmory used Fury Attack and Swift in the battle against Cyndaquil, nearly knocking it out. Skarmory was about to finish off the Fire-type when the two Pokémon were captured by Team Rocket. It broke free easily with Swift, and was later sent Team Rocket blasting off, freeing Cyndaquil in the process.

The next day, Miki battled Ash and Cyndaquil again. After a heated battle, both Pokémon were badly hurt, but regardless, Cyndaquil was able to defeat Skarmory with a powerful Flamethrower.

Skarmory's known moves are Fury Attack, Agility, Swift, and Steel Wing.
