Nessa is a Gym Leader and a user of Water-type Pokémon.

Appearance

Nessa is a tall dark-skinned girl with long blue hair and eyes. She wears a gym uniform consisting of a white crop top and shorts with blue and orange details as well as a number 049 on it. For accessories, she wears hoop earrings, two armlets, a Dynamax band and a blue single glove on her hand. She also wears a belly chain and white and blue sandals with buoys on them.

Personality

Underneath her seemingly composed exterior through her calm tone when she speaks, Nessa actually conceals a burning heart on battling with massive competitiveness and indomitable willpower. As her type preference suggests, she is a strategist that relies on powerful Water types to suppress and eventually overwhelm opponents' Pokémon.

Trivia

  • Nessa's name references Loch Ness from Scotland, known for its fabled monster.
  • Nessa's goroawase number, 049, can be read as "oyogu" ("to swim" in Japanese).
  • In the Gym Battle, Nessa's Drednaw is male, while in all subsequent Champion Cup matches, it is female.
    • It's important to keep in mind, though, that the Drednaw she had during the Gym Battle isn’t capable of Gigantamaxing and the one she uses afterwards can.
  • Nessa is the third Gym Leader with a modeling career (as revealed by her rare League Card, her only in-game appearance in something other than her Gym uniform), after Unova's Elesa and Valerie of Kalos.
    • She is also the second, after Elesa, to still be active in that career, as a Kalosian TV program specifically states Valerie is a former model (as the reason Valerie can wear very high heels; Nessa's rare League Card is the only time she's seen in heels, making her the only Gym Leader with experience as a model to not wear them in-person).
