Trista (Japanese: クルティ Curti) is a character introduced in Pokémon Masters EX. She is one of the three receptionists at the Pokémon Center in Centra City, along with Tricia and Trinnia.

In the games

Trista staffs the reception desk at the Pokémon Center. Talking with her gives the player quick access to things they might need to use frequently:

  • The Tips menu gives in-depth information about all the mechanics of Pokémon Masters EX.
  • Trista's Guide is a short guide designed to ease new players into the game by introducing them to some important features the game has to offer.
  • Event Info highlights three currently ongoing events with an image and a short blurb. Tapping on the image for any of these events will immediately take the player to the area info for that event.

During the story, Trista passes on warnings to the player when potentially dangerous activity occurs. She also occasionally serves a role similar to that of traditional Pokémon Center nurses, helping to treat injured Pokémon and being consulted about health issues of Pokémon.
