Class: Gym Leader
"Hello. Lovely weather isn't it? It's so pleasant. ...Oh dear... I must have dozed off. Welcome. My name is Erika. I am the Leader of Celadon Gym. I teach the art of flower arranging. My Pokémon are of the Grass-type. Oh, I'm sorry, I had no idea that you wished to challenge me. Very well, but I shall not lose."
— Erika, Pokémon Red, Blue, LeafGreen and FireRed.

Erika (エリカ Erika) serves as the Gym Leader at the Celadon City Gym. She specializes in using Grass-type Pokémon, and holds the Rainbow Badge for the trainers that defeat her. She dresses in elegant furisode kimonos and seems to represent traditional Japanese beauty.

In the anime

Erika Gloom

Erika first appeared in episode IL026, where she was first seen as a manager at a perfume shop. Due to an insult of the perfume from Ash, Erika banned him from the shop. When Ash and co. made their way to the local Gym, they found out that Erika was also the Gym Leader, where she banned him there too.

Following a plan made up by Team Rocket, Ash dressed up as a girl and re-introduced himself as "Ashley", so as to sneak inside the Gym. After his disguise was disintegrated by Pikachu, Erika later on decided to battle him. She had to under Pokémon League rules. Their match was cut short however, when Team Rocket decided to set fire to the Gym.

Erika

Everyone made it out of the Gym until Erika realized that her Gloom was still inside. Ash then ran into the gym and saved the Gloom. After the ordeal, Erika rewarded Ash with a Rainbow Badge for his actions.

In the manga

Red, Green and Blue Arc

Erika first told Red to catch an Eevee before he could challenge her at her gym.

After catching Eevee he challenged Erika and lost. Even though he did, Erika saw potential in Red and gave him the Rainbow Badge.

Yellow Arc

She fought against the mind controlled Pokémon that was aiming for all of the badges, and just like the other gym leaders, her badge was also taken.

Gold, Silver and Crystal Arc

She fought against Pryce during the competition that is a battle of two regions namely Kanto and Johto. Though she lost to Pryce.
