Trinity (Japanese: タカミ Takami) is a character of the day who appeared in The Perfect Match!. She was one of the competitors in the Whirl Cup and Misty's rival in the tournament.


Like Misty, Trinity specializes in Water-type Pokémon. Impressed with Misty's performance, they personally met after Misty's win against Ash in the competition. Brock remembered her from her previous victory, mentioning that she fought perfectly. Trinity battled Misty in the third round against her Poliwhirl and Corsola, and won after a tough battle. At the end of the battle, Misty and Trinity met up again. Misty congratulated her for the victory and wished good luck to her rival and friend in her next battle, which ultimately lead her to the finals of the competition.

Just before the match began between her and a powerful Trainer with a Feraligatr, she, Misty, Ash, and the Trainer united to defeat Team Rocket, who was trying to steal the Great Sea Spirit Sapphire from the hands of Maya. After that, her finals battle continued, but she eventually lost the battle. As a result, she was ranked second in the tournament. At the end of the episode, she appeared next to Ash, Misty, and Brock, talking about how they could improve their skills with Water-type Pokémon.

She reappeared in a flashback in Espeon, Not Included.


This listing is of Trinity's known Pokémon in the anime:

Trinity's Gyarados was the first Pokémon Trinity used in her battle against Misty and her Poliwhirl in the Whirl Cup. Misty ordered Poliwhirl to use Bubble but Gyarados charged up a Hyper Beam, stopping the Bubble barrage and knocking Poliwhirl out. Misty decided to send out Corsola next. Trinity commanded Gyarados to use Hydro Pump and it fired a powerful stream of water, but Misty told Corsola to counter it with Mirror Coat. The Hydro Pump was sent back, but Gyarados fired its Hyper Beam, blowing the water away and still going straight for Corsola. Corsola dove down and the beam blew up behind her. Waiting a while, Misty finished Gyarados off with Spike Cannon, which amazingly knocked it out.

It reappeared in a flashback in Espeon, Not Included.

Gyarados's known moves are Hyper Beam and Hydro Pump.

Trinity's Chinchou was the second Pokémon Trinity used in her battle against Misty and her Corsola in the Whirl Cup. Trinity told Chinchou to use Spark, which it did but instead, sent the electricity to the sky. Electricity was fired down from the skies but Corsola used another Mirror Coat. However, it didn't hold out for long, not to mention Chinchou didn't even flinch. Trinity told Chinchou to use Confuse Ray and Chinchou fired a wave, but Corsola dove underwater to avoid it. Chinchou used it again, but this time underwater, getting Corsola confused and allowing it to knock the Coral Pokémon out with Water Gun, giving Trinity the win.

It reappeared in a flashback in Espeon, Not Included.

Chinchou's known moves are Spark, Confuse Ray and Water Gun.

Trinity's Golduck was the Pokémon Trinity used in her battle against a Pokémon Trainer and his Feraligatr in the finals of the Whirl Cup. But before the battle could begin, Team Rocket appeared and nabbed the Sea Spirit. Pikachu was able to break the line, allowing Golduck, along with Ash's Totodile, Misty's Poliwhirl, and the Trainer's Feraligatr, to use Water Gun to send Team Rocket blasting off. Golduck was later shown to have lost the battle.

Golduck's only known move is Water Gun.
