'''Ursula''' (Japanese: '''ウララ''' ''Urara'') is a recurring character ofwho appeared in the [[Pokémon anime]]. She is a [[Pokémon Coordinator]] and a [[rival]] of both {{an|Dawn}} and [[Jessie|Jessilina]].
 
==History==
[[File:Ursula Wallace Cup.png|thumb|left|220px|Ursula in the Wallace Cup]]
Ursula first appeareddebuted 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}}.
 
During the [[Contest Battle]]s, Ursula was paired up against [[Jessie|Jessilina]] in the semifinals. At one point, Ursula's Gabite and Jessilina's {{TP|James|Carnivine}} seemed to be evenly matched, but when time ran out, [[Marian]] announced that the {{pkmn|Coordinator}} advancing to the final round was Ursula. In the finals, Ursula posed a threat to Dawn as her Gabite had the upper hand for most of the battle against [[Dawn's Pachirisu]]. However, she found herself in trouble when Dawn fought back by commanding Pachirisu to block Gabite's attacks in unique ways, which ended up reducing Ursula's points considerably just as the clock was running down. As a result, she lost the battle, thinking that only the five-minute time limit prevented her from pulling off a win.
 
Her next appearance was inIn ''[[DP161|Yes in Dee Dee, It's Dawn!]]'', where sheUrsula was shownseen practicing with her {{p|Plusle}} and {{p|Minun}} for the [[Daybreak Town]] Pokémon Contest. After telling Dawn she also had won four Contest Ribbons, she introduced the two Cheering Pokémon she had trained specifically for a [[Double Performance]], causing Dawn to panic and make some rude remarks. When Dawn apologized, Ursula decided to show her the results of their {{pkmn|training}}. However, the static electricity produced by Plusle and Minun made Dawn's hair sparkle like a diamond, which ultimately led her to faint.
 
Ursula was then seen overhearing the talk about the origin of Dawn's nickname, Dee Dee, and laughing to herself. At the start of the Daybreak Contest, she taunted Dawn with this story. Later on, she used Gabite and {{p|Jigglypuff}} to deliver a performance that received positive reviews from the [[Contest Judge]]s and secured her a place in the second round. In ''[[DP162|Playing the Performance Encore!]]'', Ursula faced off against Jessilina in the first match of the Battle Stage. Using her Plusle and Minun, she was able to defeat Jessilina's {{TP|Jessie|Yanmega}} and {{TP|Jessie|Seviper}}. After that, she won one more battle to reach the finals.
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.
 
Ursula appeared again inIn ''[[DP174|Last Call — First Round!]]'', where sheUrsula 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 [[Water Stone]] and a [[Fire Stone]] at each, causing them to evolve into {{p|Vaporeon}} and {{p|Flareon}}. Ursula's unique [[appeal]] easily placed her among the 32 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 proved to be a very 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 ''[[DP177|A Grand Fight for Winning!]]'', watching Dawn and [[Zoey]] compete in the finals.
|desc=For the [[Double Performance]] required during the {{to|Daybreak}} {{pkmn|Contest}}, Ursula brought along her {{p|Plusle}} and {{p|Minun}}, Pokémon which are known for performing well together. Seeing the two Cheering Pokémon brought back bad memories for Dawn, as she was forced to remember how she gained the nickname 'Dee-Dee'. Ursula planned on using Dawn's bad memories against her by using Plusle and Minun during the [[Contest Battle|Battle Stage]] of the Contest. However, Dawn overcame her fears and defeated the two Cheering Pokémon with her {{TP|Dawn|Cyndaquil}} and {{TP|Dawn|Mamoswine}}.
