Poppy (Japanese: ポピー Poppy) is a member of the Elite Four of the Paldea region. She specializes in Steel-type Pokémon.

In the core series games

Poppy is first introduced to the player by Rika after they have won seven Gym Badges. Although she is far younger than the rest of the Elite Four, as well as Paldea's Gym Leaders, Poppy is considered one of the strongest Pokémon Trainers in the region. She is normally sweet and good-natured, but becomes competitive during battles; because of her age, she refers to her Pokémon with childlike nicknames. After the player becomes a Champion, Poppy watches their battle against Nemona in Mesagoza. Additionally, Poppy looks up to Rika as a mentor, despite Rika claiming Poppy is a better Trainer than she is, and Larry, whom she speaks highly of.

The Indigo Disk

Poppy can be invited to Unova's Blueberry Academy as a special coach. There, she decides to start attending classes at Naranja AcademyS/Uva AcademyV in the following school year. When talking with Geeta in the League Club Room, Poppy reveals that she's trying to draw a picture of her superior, which is a nod to Geeta's settei.[3] When interacting with Larry, Poppy asks if she is his best friend, but Larry, unable to answer, changes the subject, annoying Poppy. When conversing with Rika, Poppy is annoyed that the students mistake her for a lost kid, prompting her friend to reply with a remark on how adorable she is, which quickly cheers her up.


Poppy will Terastallize her Tinkaton at the first opportunity.
