Personality

Professor Oak told Red he learned to accept Pokémon as equals, and when he told Agatha, she told him he was crazy. Oak also tells the player, that after not befriending her Pokémon, she became a "Twisted old Woman, who hated children and never had friends".

Etymology

The name Agatha could come from "aghast" (scared), "hag" (an unpleasant or malicious older woman) or "agony". It may also reference murder mystery author Agatha Christie.

Her Japanese name, Kikuko, comes from 鬼 (ki, ghost or demon) and possibly 菊 (kiku, the Japanese name for the chrysanthemum).
