Tammy

Tammy (Japanese: ナビ Nabi) is a young girl and a character of the day who appeared in I Politoed Ya So!. She is the leader of a Pokémon cheerleading troupe.

Her Politoed nicknamed Bean ran off after she scolded it for not performing properly. During her search she stumbled across Misty's Politoed, after which Tammy decided she liked the latter more and hoped to use it for the upcoming National Competition. Meanwhile Misty and her friends encountered Bean, though Misty was certain that it was not her own Politoed, which she later discovered practicing a cheer routine with Tammy.

After Politoed ran back to Misty, Tammy asked if she could borrow it, but Misty saw that Tammy was particularly harsh towards all of her own Pokémon, furiously yelling at them for every mistake. As a result, her own Politoed had become withdrawn and morose. Misty eventually called Tammy out on her selfish and immature actions. Tammy watched Misty tend to her crying Pokémon, and she realized that she had become fixated on winning as opposed to her actual goal of entertaining crowds. She apologized to her Pokémon, who forgave her, and was once again the serious yet sweet Trainer she used to be.

Team Rocket later showed up at Tammy dance school and quickly captured everyone using their cheerleading Politoed mecha. Ash, Pikachu and Bean rushed back and sought to deal with the evil trio. Bean turned out to be the hero and rescued everyone before Pikachu delivered a final Thunderbolt to send Team Rocket on their way. Afterwards, Tammy had officially reunited with Bean, and was particularly pleased to see that it had picked up Misty's Politoed's own clapping rhythm.

During which, Misty noticed that Bean was all alone and worse still, Tammy was keen to use Misty's Politoed for the competition instead.

Main article: Misty's Politoed

When Tammy was looking for her Politoed, Bean, she stumbled across Misty's Politoed and mistook it for Bean. She took Politoed to her dance school and was quickly impressed by its clapping, which instantly made the other cheer Pokémon perform in time. Even after learning that this Politoed actually belonged to Misty, Tammy was still set on using it for her upcoming Nationals tournament.

After Team Rocket arrived on the scene, Bean returned and rescued them all. Bean's heroic actions impressed Tammy, and it had developed its own clapping rhythm which proved equally effective, so Tammy allowed Politoed to return to Misty's team.
