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


Pinery giving Eevee to Chloe

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

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

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

In Infinite Possibilities!, Pinery met with Chloe, who talked to her about her travels since meeting Eevee.
