Sima (Japanese: アマラ Amara) is a recurring character who appeared in the Pokémon anime. She runs a Moomoo Milk farm at Paniola Ranch together with her husband Rango and their children Kiawe and Mimo.

In the anime

Sima debuted in Young Kiawe Had a Farm!, when Ash decided to visit Kiawe's family farm.

She appeared during a flashback A Crowning Moment of Truth!, where she was with Kiawe and Rango as they attended the Wela Fire Festival on Akala Island, where Trainers get their Pokémon to wear the Wela Crown (Japanese ヴェラの冠 Crown of Wela).

In The Young Flame Strikes Back!, the future of the ranch came under threat by a businessman named Viren, who wanted to turn it into a hotel. The ranch was saved when Officer Jenny arrested Viren for forging land owner documents, following his defeat by Marowak.

Sima appeared during a flashback in Filling the Light with Darkness!, where Kiawe revealed that she had been sleeping due to the effects of a Necrozma, whilst he and Mimo worked on the farm.

In Lillier and the Staff!, Sima watched Kiawe perform in the school play.

In A Fiery Training Camp Trick!, Sima stopped Mimo from going camping with Kiawe, Sophocles, and Ash, saying they weren't going camping for fun. Sima later visited the camp alongside Mimo to provide food to the boys.


Sima is generous and welcoming, often spoiling Kiawe's friends with plenty of Moomoo Milk ice-cream when they visit. Although Rango is the ranch president, Sima is truly in charge of the operation. She takes care of the household and the farm Pokémon. Sima is particularly attentive to Akala Island traditions and assures her family are grateful to Wela Volcano for providing everything for them.
