Mom (Johto)

Concept art from Pokémon Gold and Silver

Mom (Japanese: おかあさん mother) is the mother of Ethan, KrisC, or LyraHGSS.

In the Generation II games and HeartGold and SoulSilver, the player's mother informs them that the Pokégear has returned from the repair shop. In Generation II, she then helps set the day of the week and, in non-Japanese and non-Korean releases, set daylight saving time accordingly (except if it's between 11:00 PM and 12:59 AM in-game, in which the game prevents this due to the day of the week changing; she will claim that she lost the instruction booklet for the Pokégear, although not during the initial setup process).

She will save the player's money at their request so that a quarter of the money won from each battle is automatically sent to her, and money can be deposited and withdrawn from her (in HeartGold and SoulSilver, if the player has PokémonDollar.png999,999 on hand then no additional money earned from battles will be sent to her, contrary to what the end-of-battle dialogue claims). She occasionally buys decorationsGSC, damage-reducing BerriesHGSS, or other items (listed below) with the player's money, then apologizes for spending the money she is saving. Her cooking specialty is the Cinnabar Volcano Burger.

Items purchased

Generation II

After the player wins a Trainer battle, the player's mother may purchase items for them.

When the player's savings reach certain amounts, the player's mother may purchase one of the items below. Each item can only be obtained once.

Trigger Cost Item
 900  600   Super Potion
 4000  270   Repel
 7000  600   Super Potion
 10000  1800   Charmander Doll
 15000  3000   Moon Stone
 19000  600   Super Potion
 30000  4800   Clefairy Doll
 40000  900   Hyper Potion
 50000  8000   Pikachu Doll
 100000  22800   Big Snorlax Doll

If the player's mother cannot purchase one of the above items, then she may randomly purchase an item below if the player's savings are an exact multiple of  2300. The target multiple rises each time the player's savings pass or equal the previous target (starting with  2300) and never lowers. This means that if the player's savings increase from  4500 to  4700 after a battle, they will thereafter be unable to trigger one of these items at  4600 even if they make a withdrawal from their savings.

Cost Item
 600   Super Potion
 90   Antidote
 180   Poké Ball
 450   Escape Rope
 500   Great Ball
