The mother and daughter (Japanese: いつもの親子 usual mother and daughter) are two minor characters who first appeared in the prologue of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. Since then, they have made cameo appearances in many Pokémon movies.


In Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, the mother was reading the history of Rota to her daughter. The little girl insisted that her mother read the story again, which her mother accepted.

In The Rise of Darkrai, they were seen traveling through Alamos Town when they were buying cotton candy from a man at a stand. They were seen again when Darkrai attacked several Pokémon in the town square.

In Giratina and the Sky Warrior, they were seen walking in a town while Zero attacked Ash and his friends with his Magnemite, Magneton, and Magnezone.

They were seen walking past Ash and his friends during the ending credits for Arceus and the Jewel of Life.

In Zoroark: Master of Illusions, they were seen walking along the sidewalk behind Peg.

In White—Victini and Zekrom and Black—Victini and Reshiram, they were passed by Ash, Iris, and Cilan during the battle tournament in Eindoak Town. They later witnessed the Sword of the Vale being lifted into the air.

They appeared when Ash and his friends got off the train in Windy Station and in the ending credits of Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice, where they passed by Ash and his friends on a bridge. They were seen again in the end credits where Ash, Iris, and Cilan are seen eating ice cream on a bridge.

In the ending credits of Genesect and the Legend Awakened, they were among the guests taking a tour of Pokémon Hills with Eric.

They made another appearance during the Mega Latias and Mega Latios journal in the Japanese version of XY050, where they were seen riding a plane. This segment was later dubbed as part of the Mega Evolution Pokédex Shorts. This marked their first appearance in the main series.

In Hoopa and the Clash of Ages, they were evacuated from the space-time collapse via one of Hoopa's rings.

In I Choose You!, which is set in a different continuity from the main series, they were seen walking through an unknown town. Later at the end of the film, they were seen sitting in garden together with a poochyena.

In The Power of Us, they were seen by the veranda with a Bayleef watching lanterns in the sky.

They physically debuted in the main series in Securing the Future!, where they were among those in a crowd watching Hala on television.

In Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution, they were seen in the ending credits.

In Secrets of the Jungle, they were seen walking around Milyfa Town.

In A Ripple in Time, they were seen passing Cynthia and her Garchomp.


A Bayleef was seen beside the mother and daughter as they watched Chinese lanterns being released into the sky in Fula City. Since The Power of Us is set in an alternate timeline, it is unknown if they own a Bayleef in the main series.

None of Bayleef's moves are known.
