'''Bertha''' (Japanese: '''キクノ''' ''Kikuno'') is the second [[Elite Four]] member fought in [[Pokémon Diamond and Pearl|Pokémon Diamond, Pearl]] and [[Pokémon Platinum|Platinum]]. Her team is comprised of {{Type|Ground}}-type [[Pokémon]] (some are part {{Type|Water}}). With this said, it is best to avoid using {{Type|Electric}} type [[Pokémon]] against her, as they will not last long in the battle. The best alternative is to have either a Water or most recommended {{type|Grass}} type [[Pokémon]] because she has part-water type [[Pokémon]], such as [[Empoleon]] or [[Torterra]], when fighting her. The strongest [[Pokémon]] on her team is [[Hippowdon]]. Her [[Pokémon]] levels range in the 50's, so it is wise to be prepared with [[Potion]]s, [[Revive]]s, etc., and leveled up properly. In [[Platinum]], her [[Pokémon]] will get stronger the more you battle her. In the anime, she was the only Elite Four member that wasn't shown challenging [[Cynthia]].

Preferred Type: Ground

Debut Generation: IV
Voice actor:

Elite Four Ranking: 3rd
Class: Elite Trainer

Bertha (Japanese: キクノ Kikuno) is the second Elite Four member fought in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. Her team is comprised of Ground-type Pokémon (some are part Water). With this said, it is best to avoid using Electric-type Pokémon against her, as they will not last long in the battle. The best alternative is to have either a Water or most recommended Grass-type Pokémon because she has part-water type Pokémon, such as Empoleon or Torterra, when fighting her. The strongest Pokémon on her team is Hippowdon. Her Pokémon levels range in the 50's, so it is wise to be prepared with Potions, Revives, etc., and leveled up properly. In Platinum, her Pokémon will get stronger the more you battle her.

QuotesEdit

  • Before battle:

"Well, well. You're quite the adorable Trainer, but you've also got a spine. Ahaha! I'm Bertha. I have a preference for Ground-type Pokémon. Well, would you show this old lady how much you've learned?"

  • During battle:

"Dear child, don't assume for an instant that you've won."

  • When defeated:

"Well! Dear child, I must say, that was most impressive. Your Pokémon believed in you and did their best to earn you the win. Even though I've lost, I find myself with this silly grin!"

  • After battle:

"You're quite something, youngster. I like how you and your Pokémon earned the win by working as one. That's what makes you so strong. Ahahaha! I think that you can go as far as you want."

  • Last words:

"The Trainer in the next room is a much more formidable opponent. You really must have your wits about you. However, I think you can go as far as you desire. Ahahaha!"

TriviaEdit
