Solidad (Japanese: サオリ Saori) is a recurring character who appeared in the Pokémon anime. She is a Pokémon Coordinator from Pewter City who first appeared in May, We Harley Drew'd Ya!.


Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire

Solidad debuted in May, We Harley Drew'd Ya!, where it was revealed that she had defeated Drew in his very first Pokémon Contest, causing him to cry. Since then they have become friends. They keep in touch and occasionally run into each other. She also noticed that Drew became more competitive, and she thinks May is the reason for this.

In Channeling the Battle Zone!, Solidad battled May in the semifinal round of the Kanto Grand Festival. She was able to counter May's attacks as she had previously observed her battling style. She managed to win the battle against May, and then she won the final stage, giving her the Ribbon Cup and the title of Top Coordinator. Similarly to Drew, May also cried after being defeated by Solidad.

In The Unbeatable Lightness of Seeing!, Solidad was revealed to have traveled to Johto.

Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl

In Staging a Heroes' Welcome! and Strategy with a Smile!, Solidad was seen in Ecruteak City along with Harley and Drew, watching May perform live on TV at the Wallace Cup.


Solidad is more mature than fellow Coordinators May and Drew but still holds them in high esteem. She and Brock are old friends and she used to see him often when he was still the Gym Leader of Pewter Gym, even knowing him from before then. She also stated that she is old friends with Harley and that she finds him to be an interesting person.


This is the list of Solidad's known Pokémon in the anime:

Slowbro first appeared with Solidad, using psychic powers to lift the escaping Aipom into Ash's arms. In Thinning the Hoard!, Slowbro created a masterful display of levitating itself with Psychic, then using Water Gun to create a fountain effect. Later in the episode, it used Hyper Beam to single-handedly blast a Girafarig and a Zangoose out of the competition.

In Channeling the Battle Zone!, Slowbro was shown to be fighting alongside Pidgeot against May's Combusken and Munchlax. It easily disarmed Munchlax's Focus Punch with Psychic, before putting Combusken to sleep with Yawn. It evaded Munchlax's Solar Beam and teamed up with Pidgeot to knock Munchlax out with another Hyper Beam.

Slowbro's known moves are Psychic, Water Gun, Hyper Beam, and Yawn.

Solidad's Pidgeot was used during the Double Battle phase against May alongside Solidad's Slowbro against May's Combusken and Munchlax. Although it was hit hard by Combusken's Fire Spin, it recovered and used Feather Dance to dissipate the flames and send burning feathers down on May's Pokémon. It then used Double Team to avoid Munchlax's last desperate attack, and teamed up with Slowbro to knock it out with an Aerial Ace.

Pidgeot's known moves are Feather Dance, Aerial Ace, and Double Team.
