Pokémon Performer

Pokémon Performers (Japanese: ポケモンパフォーマー Pokémon Performer) are female Trainers who raise Pokémon to compete in Pokémon Showcases, where they demonstrate their partnership in a number of activities.

Elma and her Roserade in a Showcase


A Performer's job is to create dance routines and movement sequences for her Pokémon and herself, as they have to show the audience how well coordinated they are together through their performance. They also must be able to use their Pokémon's capabilities and skills to their advantage, displaying their moves and characteristics in an entertaining way. This is similar to how Pokémon Coordinators show off their Pokémon in the Performance Stage of a Pokémon Contest, but the key difference is that Performers have to involve themselves in the performances.

Since there are different themes used during the first round of a Pokémon Showcase, Performers have to excel in other activities as well, such as baking Poké Puffs and dressing up their Pokémon with accessories. They can also use Pokévision videos as a way to promote themselves for Pokémon Showcases.

Performers who win a Rookie Class tournament are awarded with a Princess Key. Once they have collected at least three Princess Keys they can enter the Master Class tournament, where they compete for the title of Kalos Queen.

Kalos Queen

Aria as Kalos Queen

The title of Kalos Queen (Japanese: カロスクイーン Kalos Queen) is awarded to a Pokémon Performer who has won the Pokémon Showcase Master Class. It is the goal of every Performer to win the title. Winners are also given a gold-colored trophy, as well as tiaras for themselves and their Pokémon.

Unlike the title of Top Coordinator, which is permanently held by Coordinators who have won the Grand Festival, there can only be one Kalos Queen at a time, mirroring the Champion status of a Trainer who has won the Champion League. Like the League Champion, the Kalos Queen has to defend her title from challengers. If defeated, she must relinquish her title to the winning Performer.

The current Kalos Queen is Aria, who managed to keep the title after winning the Gloire Showcase Master Class. Aria's mentor, Palermo, used to hold the title of Kalos Queen.
