'''Ursula''' (Japanese: '''ウララ''' ''Urara'') is a recurring character who appeared in the [[Pokémon anime]]. She is a [[Pokémon Coordinator]] and a [[rival]] of both {{an|Dawn}} and [[Jessie]]'s who first appeared in ''[[DP114|Another One Gabites the Dust!Jessilina]]''.
 
== History ==
She[[File:Ursula isWallace a {{pkmnCup.png|Coordinator}} from the Sinnoh region who entered the {{tothumb|Chocovine}} {{pkmnleft|Contest}} at the same time as Dawn, first meeting her just outside the [[Contest Hall]] when her {{p220px|Gabite}} got into a confrontation with [[Dawn's Pachirisu]]. Ursula offeredin onethe ofWallace her own [[PoffinsCup]] to Pachirisu to replace the one Gabite had stepped on, but Pachirisu refused it, causing Ursula to take offense.
Ursula debuted in ''[[DP114|Another One Gabites the Dust!]]'', where it was revealed that she was one of the [[Wallace Cup]] competitors who were eliminated in the first round. When she recognized {{an|Dawn}}, she said it was an accident Dawn won the {{DL|Ribbon|Aqua Ribbon}} and she was looking forward to seeing Dawn's graceful moves at the [[Chocovine Town]] [[Pokémon Contest]]. Later, she was seen using her [[List of Pokémon with form differences|Sandy Cloak]] {{p|Wormadam}} to perform a routine that ensured her progression to the second stage, where she used her {{TP|Ursula|Gabite}}.

[[File:Ursula and Dawn.png|thumb|left|250px|Ursula and Dawn]]
Throughout the Chocovine Contest, she remained critical of Dawn's performance. She and Dawn met in the finals, having defeated [[Jessie]] and {{TP|James|Carnivine}} to do so. Ultimately, however, Ursula lost to Dawn, thinking that only the time limit prevented her from pulling off a win.

Before leaving [[Valor Lakefront]] File:Ursula bitterly toldand Dawn that, despite having lost against her three times, she still refused to believe her rival was the better coordinator.png|thumb|250px|Ursula and that one day she would manage to defeat her. Dawn]]
When Ursula found out that Dawn was her next opponent, she commented on how boring it would be to battle her in the final round and taunted her once again, calling her by her nickname and saying she didn't stand a chance against Plusle and Minun. During the battle, she had the two {{type|Electric}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} using {{m|Spark}} multiple times, eventually making Dawn's hair stand on end and sparkle. Ursula was pleased to see Diamond Dandruff in person, but her mood suddenly changed when Dawn managed to get rid of {{m|Encore}} and perfect the Flame Ice [[Contest combination|combo]], lowering Ursula's points in the process. Ursula tried to fight back, but time ran out and Dawn was declared the winner.
 
She made a brief appearance inIn ''[[DP177DP174|ALast GrandCall Fight forFirst WinningRound!]]'', watchingUrsula attended the Coordinator Meet and Greet for the [[Sinnoh Grand Festival]]. There, she approached Dawn and said she was counting on her to look good that day. Later, she was seen performing on the Blue Stage with her two {{p|Eevee}}. As part of her performance, she threw a [[ZoeyWater Stone]] competeand ina [[Fire Stone]] at each, causing them to evolve into {{p|Vaporeon}} and {{p|Flareon}}. Ursula's unique [[appeal]] easily placed her among the finals32 Coordinators advancing to the Contest Battles, and in ''[[DP175|Opposites Interact!]]'', she discovered she had been matched up against Dawn yet again.
 
Using her Gabite and Flareon against Dawn's Pachirisu and {{TP|Dawn|Mamoswine}}, Ursula hadproved to be a cameovery tough opponent as she was able to take away nearly all of Dawn's points by delivering one successful attack after another and displaying some fierce combinations. However, her overconfidence ended up providing an opening for Dawn to use her newest custom-made move, Ice Chandelier, which knocked out Gabite and Flareon at once and prompted the judges to rule {{DL|Fainting|Battle Off}} for Ursula's Pokémon, thereby eliminating Ursula from the [[Grand Festival]]. She made a brief appearance in ''[[M13DP177|Zoroark:A MasterGrand ofFight Illusionsfor Winning!]]'', watching Dawn and [[Zoey]] compete in the finals.
 
Ursula made a cameo appearance in the ending credits of ''[[M13|Zoroark: Master of Illusions]]''.
 
==Character==
[[File:Ursula.png|thumb|250px|Ursula has the tendency of being too sure of herself, as evidenced in most of her battles with Dawn. She would usually make up excuses regarding her losses that it wasn't her fault.overconfident]]
Like {{an|Dawn}}, Ursula has been eliminated several times in the [[Appeal|Performance Stage]]. For this reason, she started working hard so that she could become a better {{pkmn|Coordinator}}. Prior to meeting Dawn, she had won three {{pkmn|Contest}} [[Ribbon]]s, the same that Dawn had at that time. Believing Dawn's win in the [[Wallace Cup]] to be a fluke, and due to the fact that the two were simultaneously going for their fourth Ribbon, she developed an unfriendly [[rival]]ry with her.
 
Ursula has the tendency of being too sure of herself, as evidenced in most of her [[Contest Battle|battles]]. Despite her arrogance, she is shown to care for her Pokémon and treat them well. Whenever she loses a battle, she makes excuses to diminish her faults. She may also take offense to small things, as seen in her [[DP114|debut episode]] when [[Dawn's Pachirisu]] refused one of her [[Poffin]]s.
 
Her overall battling style is about incapacitating her opponent's Pokémon to prevent them from retaliating, showing off their [[appeal]] or escaping her consecutive attacks. When giving commands to her Pokémon, she usually makes signs with her arms crossed. This trait was noticed by [[Jessie|Jessilina]], who became inspired to make something similar during her performances.
