The Pokémon Center Ladies are a trio of non-player characters that appear in Pokémon Emerald. They are all located in the Lilycove City Pokémon Center, but only one will ever appear in a player's game. The lady that appears is determined by the ID number of the game.

Each lady will ask for something of the player. Once this is accomplished, she may give a reward.


The Lady who initially appears is determined by the player's Trainer ID number modulo 6.

  • If the Trainer ID mod 6 is 0 or 1, the Quiz Lady will appear.
  • If the Trainer ID mod 6 is 2 or 3, the Favor Lady will appear.
  • If the Trainer ID mod 6 is 4 or 5, the Contest Lady will appear.

If two or more players of Pokémon Emerald mix records with each other, the ladies that were in those players' games will be transferred.

Contest Lady

The Contest Lady will ask for a Pokéblock to give to her Pokémon. The flavor of the Pokéblock needs to fit her Pokémon's preference. She says thanks but doesn't appear to alter the game in any way.


Pokémon Flavor
  Vinny Dry
  Moreme Sweet
  Muscle Sour
  Ironhard Bitter
  Handsome Spicy

Favor Lady

The Favor Lady will ask for an item. In return, she will give a vitamin as a prize. However, she is cryptic and will only hint at the kind of item she wants using a description of what it looks like.

Although there are many other items that also fit the descriptions the Favor Lady asks for, she will only accept those listed below. If a wrong item is given to her, she will not accept another until the next day.
