Mom (Japanese: おかあさん mother) is the mother of Brendan or May and the wife of Norman. In Generation III, the player's mother helps the player move in, and instructs them to set the time on the clock upstairs and to make sure that everything is on their desk. When the player comes back downstairs, she will say that the player's father is on TV; however, the player just missed him.
When the player defeats Norman, she will give an Amulet Coin as a reward.
In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, after the player has entered the Hall of Fame, a news report will be on TV. It will announce that a Pokémon is roaming the Hoenn region, which will be either LatiasS or LatiosR. In Emerald, it will not distinguish which of the eon duo is the roaming Pokémon, due to static interference. Instead, the player's mother will ask if the news report was either about a red creature (Latias) or a blue creature (Latios). The one chosen will then roam Hoenn. In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Latias/Latios is encountered early in the game and no longer roams. Instead, after completing the Delta Episode, she gives the player a LatiasiteOR or LatiositeAS.
In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Norman reveals that he and his family moved to Hoenn from Olivine City.
