Natasha

Natasha (Japanese: ナッチ Natchi) is a character of the day who appeared in What You Seed is What You Get.

Natasha is the owner of a watermelon patch near Mauville City and takes great pride in it, even declaring herself the "Melon Master". She has her Pokémon, including an Electrode which is painted like a watermelon, help her guard them.

A hungry Team Rocket happened to come across her watermelons and decided to help themselves to a few. However, they were stopped when her Electrode discovered them and used Rollout, which sent them flying. Unfortunately, this caused the watermelons to be dropped into a nearby river. Later, they happened to be discovered by Ash and his friends and they, not knowing the watermelons belonged to Natasha, decided to eat them. However, when Natasha saw them eating them, she immediately called on her Grovyle and Slugma to attack them. She refused to believe their alibis until her Electrode informed her that the group were not the thieves. She then nervously apologized to Ash and the others.

Later, she challenged Ash to a Double Battle. Her Grovyle and Slugma faced Ash's Treecko and Corphish. She ended up winning the match when her Grovyle's Bullet Seed attack triumphed over Treecko's. Thanks to her Grovyle, Treecko was able to learn Bullet Seed. However, it would need to perfect it later on.

Natasha's Grovyle
Grovyle
Grovyle is one of the two Pokémon Natasha used to battle Ash. It first appeared when it used its Bullet Seed to intrude on Ash and his friends, who were eating the watermelons.

Grovyle showed amazing cooperation with Slugma when they battled against Ash's Treecko and Corphish. During the battle, Ash's Treecko started off with a Pound against Grovyle, and Corphish used Bubble Beam on Slugma. Grovyle dodged the Pound and fired a Bullet Seed at the Bubble Beam. This neutralized the Bubble Beam, protecting Slugma. Grovyle landed several Leaf Blades on Corphish, leaving it exhausted. The battle went on with Corphish and Slugma defeating each other until Team Rocket disrupted them.

Team Rocket appeared in their Cacnea mecha, but in the end they were sent blasting off. The match resumed but in the end, Natasha won the match, due to Grovyle's own Bullet Seed proving too powerful.

Grovyle's known moves are Bullet Seed, Leaf Blade, and Solar Beam.
