The Miss Fortune sisters in Legends: Arceus
The Miss Fortunes (Japanese: ショウチクバイ Shō-Chiku-Bai), also known as the Miss Fortune sisters, are a trio of bandits from the Hisui region and act as the villainous team for the region. As bandits, they usually steal valuable items or Pokémon. Prior to becoming bandits, they were members of the Galaxy Team, while prior to that, Clover and Coin were members of the Diamond Clan and Pearl Clan, respectively.
Members of this team have the Trainer class Bandit.
In the core series games
Pokémon Legends: Arceus
The Miss Fortune sisters are first encountered at Crimson Mirelands when the player recovers the stolen Wall Fragment from them. Their next encounter with them is at Cobalt Coastlands after the player has befriended the rideable Basculegion, stealing one of Palina's Growlithe and taking it to Firespit Island so they can evolve it. The player follows them and defeats each of the sisters, after which Palina's other Growlithe appears and evolves into Arcanine, forcing the sisters to depart. They're encountered for the third time in Primeval Grotto, wanting to steal the Origin Ore since they think it's valuable, but are driven away.
Outside of scripted encounters, each sister also has one semi-fixed spawn per map area. For example, Coin sometimes appears on or near the trail between Deertrack Path and Deertrack Heights in the Obsidian Fieldlands (in any weather or time of day). Each of them drops a stack of valuable items every time the player wins a battle against them during these encounters.
