Pinery (Japanese: マツバラ Matsubara) is a character of the day who appeared in To Train, or Not to Train!. She is the head of the Eevee Evolution Lab.

Pinery was first seen collecting an Eevee that had attempted to imitate a Vaporeon by swimming, only for it to fail. Along with her assistants, she tried to get the Eevee to evolve using a Fire Stone and a Thunder Stone. However, neither evolutionary stone succeeded in this regard, leaving them confused over why Eevee wouldn't evolve.

Pinery later traveled to the Cerise Laboratory, where she and her assistants collected Eevee after it had left the Eevee Evolution Laboratory. As they were leaving, Eevee decided it wanted to stay with Chloe after befriending her. Upon seeing this, she allowed Chloe to keep Eevee and informed her that it was somehow unable to evolve.

She reappeared in a flashback in On Land, In the Sea, and to the Future!.
