Fufufufu... I'm sorry to disappoint you... I'm only joking! I'm the real deal! Janine of Fuchsia Gym, that's me!

–Janine, Pokémon Gold and Silver

Janine is Koga's daughter and is the Gym Leader who succeeded/replaced him in Gold, Silver, Crystal and HeartGold and SoulSilver. She both runs the Fuchsia City Gym, and as well as specializing in using Poison-type Pokémon just as her father did in the Kanto based games. She will award the player the Soul Badge and TM84, TM06 in Gen. II, if you defeat her.


Janine is a pale young woman with purple eyes and purplish hair, the latter being tied by a yellow band. She wears a scarf, a belt and white socks.

Gold, Silver and Crystal

Janine wears a black shirt and dark pants. She also has some black gear equipped on her hands and legs.

HeartGold and SoulSilver

She wears a black ninja suit, some bracers with pink outlines on her legs and arms.


Janine is an impressionable kind of girl, she follows her father's training and would come to his defense if his name gets slandered in any way. As promised, Janine took over Koga's leadership of the Fuchsia Gym. She would bring her father his meals outside the Pokémon League, this shows that she is loyal to her family besides her usual duties.



Gold, Silver and Crystal

She succeeded her father as the Fuschia City Gym Leader after he got promoted to the Johto Elite Four. Originally, she wanted to be as good as her father in terms of using poison types,but this was later changed into becoming better than him(and Ethan in all 3 games /Kris in Crystal only, after they defeat her).

  • In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, there is a little girl in the Fuchsia City Zoo who says that her father is the town's Gym Leader and that she is training as a poison-type user. This possibly could be Janine.

    A girl as seen in Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen. She could possibly be Janine.

  • Janine is the only Kanto Gym Leader who has yet to even appear in the anime series.
  • In Koga's Fame Checker, she has her name being mispronounced as "Charine".
  • Janine's name is "ninja" with the syllables reversed. Anzu, her Japanese name, comes from 杏 (anzu, apricot, both because Koga's Japanese name comes from a different reading for the same kanji and because apricot seeds are poisonous).
