An unnamed announcer appeared in ''[[AG013|All Things Bright and Beautifly!]]'' during the [[Rustboro City]] [[Pokémon Contest]]. Starting with ''[[AG035|Win, Lose or Drew!]]'', [[Vivian Meridian|Vivian]] fulfilled the emcee duties for every other Pokémon Contest held in the [[Hoenn]] [[region]] and the [[Hoenn Grand Festival]] as well. She hosted every competition in a formal and ceremonious way, much like the host of an award ceremony.

The younger sister of Vivian, [[Lilian Meridian|Lilian]], was introduced in ''[[AG143|The Saffron Con]]'' as the announcer for the [[Kanto]] Pokémon Contests. Unlike her sister, Lilian's style as an announcer was more in line with that of a {{wp|Sports commentator|sportscaster}}. In addition, she was always trying to get the audience pumped up and create a cheerful atmosphere in the [[Contest Hall]]s. This was noted by {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}}, who commented how the crowd in Kanto Contest Halls differed from the ones in Hoenn.
