Lyra is a Trainer from the Johto region who joined Ash and the gang on their journey temporarily.


Lyra's attire and appearance consists of a white rounded hat with a red ribbon on it, brown hair tied in pigtails, brown eyes and fair skin. Lyra wears a black top under a quarter-sleeved dark red sweater with a light beige collar, denim jean overalls, a yellow handbag, white and black knee-length stockings, and red shoes with white soles.


Lyra can be quite the nosy and romantic person, interested at who will be the potential groom for Dawn in the future, as well as dreaming of her own Mr Right. She is also fond of fashion, relentlessly asking Jessie in excitement upon noticing the latter's attire.


Lyra first appeared in the episode An Egg Scramble!. She frequently mispronounces Dawn "Dane". Lyra is the game Lyra's anime counterpart, originally from Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.

Her Pokémon are Chikorita, Girafarig, and Marill. She has 2 Johto badges, the Hive Badge from Bugsy and the Zephyr Badge from Falkner.

During their journey, Lyra and Dawn become good friends, despite Lyra consistently calling Dawn, "Dane" (Dawn eventually gives up trying to correct her). On a few occasions, she has asked Dawn embarrassing questions about her love life (such as when she asked Dawn if Ash was her boyfriend). She also tried to play matchmaker between her friend Khoury and Dawn in A Rivalry to Gible On! until she herself developed feelings for him and asked him to accompany her on her journey which he accepted.
