However, other characters do not seem to regard these as {{t|Psychic}} abilities, but rather a honed sense of empathy. Nevertheless, she is still portrayed as a sort of Psychic-type specialist. She also shares a strong bond with her Pokémon, calling them "my friend" upon sending them out. She failed to teach Ash and May her empathetic abilities, as their Pokémon receive nothing from them''.
 
===Character===
Anabel has the empathetic ability to sense the emotions of living beings and communicate with them, ever since she was little. She also shares a particularly strong bond with her Pokémon, and is seemingly able to command them telepathically. Without the vocal commands as a cue, {{Ash}} initially struggled to compete against Anabel.
 
Anabel uses her Psychic Pokémon's attacks to either {{status|Confusion|confuse}} her opponent's Pokémon or control oncoming attacks. Her Pokémon also know some [[physical move]]s like {{m|Meteor Mash}}, making them equally effective in direct confrontations.

Alakazam was able to beatdefeat them with its powerful {{t|Psychic}} attacksattack. Ash then realized that Anabel was a [[Frontier Brain]] and that he would have to battle Alakazam. Ash chose {{AP|Corphish}} for thethat match. Anabel had the ability to telepathically communicate with her Pokémon and give commands without saying a word. In the end, Alakazam easily defeated {{p|Corphish}}. Alakazam then went on to defeat [[Ash'sand {{AP|Tauros]]}} before finally being defeated by his {{AP|Pikachu}}, but notit beforewas weakeningable to weaken it beforehand.
 
In ''[[AG170|Second Time's the Charm!]]'', Ash had a [[rematch]] with Anabel. Again, she chose Alakazam as her first Pokémon. It went head to head again with Ash'sagainst Corphish once again, but this time with a little bit of luck as well as Ash's quick thinking, Alakazam was defeated by Corphish's {{m|Bubble Beam}} after Ash found a way to overcome Corphish's confusion.

Anabel debuts in the {{chap|Emerald}}. She is one of the seven Trainers hired by Scott to be a [[Frontier Brain]] at the {{gdis|Battle Frontier|III}}. Anabel is first seen watching the Battle Frontier's opening ceremony. The ceremony is interrupted by {{adv|Emerald}}, who announces that he wishes to conquer the Battle Frontier. The press mistakenly report the incident as allowing an ordinary Trainer to take part in the Battle Frontier before it officially opens a week later. The Frontier Brains decide to use this assumption as free publicity and allow Emerald to challenge the Battle Frontier under the condition that he completes it before it officially opens.====History====
====={{chap|Emerald}}=====
Anabel is one of the seven {{pkmn|Trainer}}s hired by Scott to be a [[Frontier Brain]] at the {{gdis|Battle Frontier|III}}. Anabel is first seen watching the Battle Frontier's opening ceremony. The ceremony is interrupted by {{adv|Emerald}}, who announces that he wishes to conquer the Battle Frontier. The press mistakenly report the incident as allowing an ordinary Trainer to take part in the Battle Frontier before it officially opens a week later. The Frontier Brains decide to use this assumption as free publicity and allow Emerald to challenge the Battle Frontier under the condition that he completes it before it officially opens.
 
Later, while Emerald is challenging the [[Battle Pyramid]], Noland is attacked by an unknown assailant and several rental Pokémon are stolen. After Noland is taken to a hospital, the other Frontier Brains begin to suspect Emerald as the culprit. They head to the Battle Pyramid to confront Emerald and find him after having defeated Brandon. When they ask him about what happened, Emerald reveals that he did not attack Noland and is actually after the Mythical Pokémon {{padv|Jirachi}}. The Frontier Brains find Emerald's explanation suspicious, but decide to follow him into [[Artisan Cave]], where Jirachi is currently located at. Upon arriving, everyone is attacked by a horde of wild {{p|Smeargle}} while Emerald continues inside to find Jirachi. After the Frontier Brains get past the Smeargle, they meet up with Emerald, who has managed to find Jirachi. Emerald attempts to capture Jirachi, but is attacked by [[Guile Hideout]], the actual culprit who attacked Noland. When Jirachi runs off, Emerald attempts to pursue it, only to be attacked by the rental Pokémon Guile had stolen. The other Frontier Brains attempt to avenge Noland by attacking Guile, but are swiftly defeated.
[[File:Anabel SM chapter.png|150px|thumb|Anabel in the fourteenth chapter]]
Anabel applauds Emerald for focusing on his mission instead of staying behind to fight and offers to fight Guile while he focuses on capturing Jirachi. Using Raikou's control over lightning, Anabel manages to trap Guile in a cage of electricity. Emerald attempts to use this chance to capture Jirachi, but Guile uses his sword to destroy the Poké Ball and breaks free from the cage. Jirachi takes this chance to flee, forcing Guile to escape as well to continue his pursuit of it. Injured from the battle, everyone decides to return to the Battle Frontier. When they meet up with Scott again, he reveals that he was aware of Guile and Emerald's true mission the entire time. Scott states that he withheld the information from the Frontier Brains to help them get stronger as they still would have lost even if they had known of Guile beforehand.
The stress of the mind control eventually causes Anabel to pass out, forcing Guile to use her as a hostage in order to force Noland to give him the Jirachi Report, which contains the secrets of how to make Jirachi grant his wish. When Noland is unsure about what to do, Guile attacks him and takes the report by force. Now knowing Jirachi's secret, Guile has Jirachi create a gigantic {{p|Kyogre}} made of seawater and uses it to flood the entire Battle Frontier. Anabel is taken to safety by {{p|Latios}} and later awakens to help the Frontier Brains fight off Guile's rental Pokémon while Emerald and the other Pokédex holders fight Guile. Eventually, Emerald and the Pokédex holders manage to defeat Guile and destroy the gigantic Kyogre monster. The day after, an injured Anabel and the other Frontier Brains congratulate Emerald for the hard work he put into saving everyone. Anabel then awards Emerald the Ability Symbol for his skills in traversing the Battle Tower.
 
In the ====={{chap|Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire}}, Anabel and the other Hoenn Frontier Brains battle and defeat the Admins of Neo [[Team Magma]] and Neo [[Team Aqua]], who had interfered in the launch of a rocket that was made to stop the [[Grand Meteor Delta|meteoroid]] threatening to destroy the world. Once finished, Anabel is contacted by Emerald, who asks if any of the Frontier Brains had seen Sapphire in the area. When the Brains deny seeing Sapphire, Emerald thanks them and leaves. Later, Anabel and the other Hoenn Frontier Brains are called to [[Sootopolis City]] to assist in stopping the meteoroid.=====

In the ====={{chap|Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon}}, it was revealed that Anabel had become a member of the [[International Police]]. She, along with [[Looker]] first appear investigating [[Po Town]], where several [[Ultra Beasts]] had appeared before breaking out and wreaking havoc on [[Ula'ula Island]]. Shortly after arriving, Anabel and Looker meet with {{adv|Sun}} and {{adv|Moon}}, a pair of children who had previously faced the Ultra Beasts. While she questioned Sun and Moon about the beasts, Anabel had Looker go off to investigate the rampaging beasts to find information on them as well. After receiving the information, Anabel sent out her {{p|Mismagius}} to battle {{p|Blacephalon}}, another Ultra Beast that emerged from an [[Ultra Wormhole]].=====

While she questioned Sun and Moon about the beasts, Anabel had Looker go off to investigate the rampaging beasts to find information on them as well. After receiving the information, Anabel sent out her {{p|Mismagius}} to battle {{p|Blacephalon}}, another Ultra Beast that emerged from an [[Ultra Wormhole]].
 
Together with Sun, Anabel managed to stun Blacephalon long enough to throw a [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}} at it, but Blacephalon immediately breaks out, confirming that regular Poké Balls do not work on Ultra Beasts. Blacephalon retaliates by using {{m|Mind Blown}} on the group, forcing Anabel to get everyone out of the way. Anabel and the others are saved by {{p|Tapu Bulu}}, the [[Guardian deities|guardian deity]] of Ula'ula Island, who used a large gust of wind to blow both Blacephalon and its attack far away. As Sun and Moon feed a [[Mirage Berry]] to Tapu Bulu to befriend it, Anabel speculates that there must be a man hiding in Alola capable of making Poké Balls that are able to capture Ultra Beasts.
 
Later, Anabel, Sun, and Moon head towards [[Poni Island]]. Anabel revealed to Sun and Moon that {{p|Xurkitree}} and Blacephalon are also making their way to Poni. Due to Poni not having an [[Island Kahuna]], there would be no one capable enough of protecting the island from the two beasts. Sun, more fixated on delivering the next Mirage Berry to {{p|Tapu Fini}}, decided to head off and find someone who can help him search for it. After docking on Poni, Anabel and Moon arrived at [[Seafolk Village]], which had been evacuated due to the Ultra Beasts' attacks. Worried that some injured people may still be there, Anabel requested to Moon that she help heal any hurt civilians. As they walked through [[Poni Wilds]], Moon asked Anabel how she knew the names of the Ultra Beasts. Anabel then revealed that she knew because she is a Faller, a human who had passed through an Ultra Wormhole.
 
Later, Anabel and Moon traveled to [[Vast Poni Canyon]], where they witnessed [[Faba]] battling [[Plumeria]]. Anabel confronted Faba about the [[Aether Foundation]]'s involvement with the Ultra Beasts' appearance in Alola. Worried that his plans could be jeopardized, Faba has his {{tc|Aether Foundation Employee}}s battle against Anabel and Moon, hoping the distraction would give him the chance to escape. Anabel used her Pokémon to keep the Employees busy while she, Moon, and Plumeria followed Faba. As he approached the [[Poni Altar]], Faba revealed he was aware of his pursuers and proceeded to attack them while assisted by more Employees. During the battle, Moon was grabbed by {{p|Tapu Koko}} and taken to the Poni Altar.
 
Later, Anabel managed to defeat and capture Faba. After meeting with [[Gladion]], [[Lillie]], and [[Hapu]], the four traveled to the Altar, where they found that Sun and Moon managed to summon {{p|Solgaleo}} and {{p|Lunala}}, the [[Legendary Pokémon]] of the Alola region. After explaining what Solgaleo and Lunala are and their connection with {{p|Cosmog}}, Anabel received a call from Looker, who reported that a large number of Ultra Beasts emerged from Po Town and have made their way to Poni Island. Anabel teamed up with Moon, Gladion, and Hapu to fend off the attacking beasts. Later, a larger than usual wormhole opened at the Altar, which Anabel noted was caused by the {{p|Necrozma|Blinding One}}. A hand emerged from the wormhole and grabbed Solgaleo, taking control of its body. The possessed Solgaleo captured Sun with its tail and jumped into the wormhole while Moon and [[Nebby]] followed after it.

Together, they managed to stun it long enough for Anabel to attempt a capture, but the [[Ultra Beast]] broke out of the [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}} easily.
