Sima (Japanese: アマラ Amara) is a recurring character who appeared in the Pokémon anime. She is the mother of Kiawe and Mimo and the wife of Rango.


In the anime

Sima debuted in Young Kiawe Had a Farm!, at her family's home at Paniola Ranch.

She appeared during a flashback A Crowning Moment of Truth!, where she was with Kiawe and Rango as they all visited a 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.


Although Rango manages the ranch, Sima is mainly in charge of the Pokémon.
