Thank you for your help at the Lighthouse... But this is different. Please allow me to introduce myself. I'm Jasmine, a Gym Leader. I use the...clang! Steel type! ...Do you know about the Steel type? They are very hard, cold, sharp, and really strong! Um... I'm not lying.

–Jasmine, Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

Jasmine (Japanese: ミカン Mikan) is the Gym Leader of Olivine City.

Appearance

Jasmine is a teenage girl with milky chocolate brown eyes. She has long brown hair that reaches her waist with two orange beads that tie two locks of her hair in pigtails.

Gold, Silver and Crystal

Jasmine wears a white sleeveless sundress that reaches her knees with a large white ribbon on her chest and white ankle-strap sandals.

HeartGold and SoulSilver

She wears a teal sundress with a bridal hem that reaches her knees and an orange puffy bow on her chest with a snow white coat that reaches her waist and sleeves that go over her elbows. She also wears white sandals which have two teal decorations.

Personality

Jasmine has a caring, honest and reserved personality which ties in with her concern towards the environment; this is evident in her aiding the sick Ampharos in Olivine City. According to some of the trainers of her gym, she keeps that side of her hidden really well.

Etymology

The name Jasmine comes from "jasmine" (a type of plant) and "mine" (as in to mine stones or minerals) or "mineral".

Her Japanese name, Mikan, originates from 金 (kane, metal or gold) and "mechanical". Following the plant-based naming of most Gym Leaders, it may also include 蜜柑 (mikan, a word used to refer to citrus fruits).

Trivia

  • Jasmine is the first Gym Leader to specialize in Steel-type Pokémon.
    • Four generations later, the concept of a sixth Gym Leader specializing in a newly-introduced type happened again with Valerie being a specialist in Fairy-type Pokemon.
    • According to gentleman Preston in Glitter Lighthouse, Jasmine was originally a Rock-type specialist.
  • Jasmine is the only Johto Gym Leader that does not have trainers leading up to her in her Gym.
  • Though she is referred to as a Steel-type specialist, she is associated with Electric type Pokémon (such as Magnemite, Magnezone, and Ampharos) in various media (such as the games, anime, and TCG).
    • However, the Magnemite line is part Steel type.
