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.

They appeared again in The Rise of Darkrai, where they were seen traveling through Alamos Town when they heard the Space-Time Towers playing music. They were seen again when Darkrai attacked several Pokémon in the town square.

They were seen walking in a town in Giratina and the Sky Warrior 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.

They reappeared in White—Victini and Zekrom and Black—Victini and Reshiram, where they are 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 in the ending credits of Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice, where they passed by Ash and his friends on a bridge.

They made another appearance in the ending credits of Genesect and the Legend Awakened, where 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 Pathways to Performance Partnering!. This segment was later dubbed as part of the Mega Evolution Pokédex Shorts. This marked their first appearance in the main series.

They made another appearance in Hoopa and the Clash of Ages, where they were evacuated from the space-time collapse via one of Hoopa's rings.

They appeared again in Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel, where they were seen walking through an unknown town.

They appeared again in I Choose You!, which is set in a different continuity from the main series. In the movie, they were seen walking through an unknown town.

They appeared again in The Power of Us, where they were seen by the veranda with a Bayleef.

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


Mother and daughter's Bayleef
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.
