She reappeared during a flashback in ''[[DP128|A Pyramiding Rage!]]''.
Anabel has the empathetic ability to sense the emotions of living beings and communicatingcommunicate with them, ever since she was little, possessing powers similar to {{adv|Yellow}} of [[Pokémon Adventures]]. 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 {{t|Psychic}} [[type expert]]. She also shares a particularly strong bond with her Pokémon, and is seemingly able to command them seemingly telepathically. Without the vocal commands as a cue, {{Ash}} initially struggled to compete against Anabel. She also refers to her Pokemon as her friends.
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 attackmove]]s like {{m|Meteor Mash}}, making them equally effective in direct confrontations.

|desc=Anabel first called on {{p|Alakazam}} in ''[[AG169|Talking a Good Game!]]'' to help her and {{Ash}} when they were attacked by {{TRT}}. Alakazam was able to beatdefeat them with its powerful Psychic attack. Ash then realized that Anabel was a [[Frontier Brain]] and that he would have to {{pkmn|battle}} Alakazam. Ash chose {{AP|Corphish}} for thethat match. Anabel had the ability to telepathically communicate with her Pokémon and give them 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 against Ash's 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.
Alakazam's known moves are {{m|Psychic}}, {{m|Psybeam}}, {{m|Focus Punch}}, and {{m|Recover}}.}}

During Ash's [[rematch]] against Anabel, Metagross easily defeated [[Ash's {{AP|Corphish]]}}, but the Iron Leg Pokémon later tied with his {{AP|Tauros}} after its Meteor Mash collided with Tauros's {{m|Take Down}}.

|desc={{p|Espeon}}, Anabel's favorite Pokémon, was seen during {{Ash}}'s [[rematch]] against her, where it battled {{pkmnAP|battlePikachu}}d against [[Ash's Pikachu]]. Even though Espeon at firstinitially managed to overwhelm Pikachu with its speed and power, one of Pikachu's {{m|Thunderbolt}}s turned the lights off, making it impossible for both Anabel and Espeon to see where the next attack was coming from. This cost some critical hits for Espeon, and Pikachu was finally able to defeat the Sun Pokémon with a {{m|Volt Tackle}}, winning the match for Ash and earning him the [[Symbol|Ability Symbol]].
It also reappeared in a flashback in ''[[DP128|A Pyramiding Rage!]].
