This Mareanie is a Poison/Water-type Pokémon and the first Pokémon James from Team Rocket obtained in the Alola region.


When Mareanie sees James' purple face after he gets poisoned by her, she has a strong affection on him, even blushing red. Also, she likes to grab his head using its tentacles.

During Professor Burnet and Professor Kukui's wedding, Mareanie has been dreaming about marrying James as well.

She is very jealous of other Pokémon, whom she think one of them are females and trying win over James’ heart, causing James’ Pokemon capturing messed up. She was originally in love with a male Mareanie (later evolved as Toxapex in the present), until she thinks he dumbed for another female Mareanie, displaying her hatred toward her ex-boyfriend.


Sometimes in the past, the Mareanie was attacked by a Tentacruel, until a male Mareanie, whose is much older than saved her life as she fell in love with him. Unfortunately, Mareanie’s love for the male Mareanie did not last long, thinking that he dumbed her for another female Mareanie. Heartbroken, Mareanie would never love the male Mareanie ever again.

Mareanie first appeared attacking James because she wanted to eat his Corsola-shaped helmet, but later felt disappointed when she found out that she was only a helmet. After Jessie, who was attacked by her tentacles, gave James a push, she poisoned him, causing him to look like another kind of her species. Thus she blushed and started to chase him, much to his dismay. However, she later helped Team Rocket and she was so strong that she managed to poison Ash's Rowlet.
