Biography

Games

Ruby, Sapphire & Emerald

Winona first appeared in the main game series in Ruby and Sapphire. She has the same Pokémon team that she used in the anime (Swellow, Pelipper, Skarmory and Altaria) In Pokémon Emerald, Winona's team changes slightly during the rematches. Then, she now includes a Tropius, Hoothoot and its evolved form, and Dratini and its evolved forms. When defeated, Winona will reward the player with the Feather Badge and TM40 (Aerial Ace).

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire

Winona makes a re-appearance in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. After defeating the Elite Four, Winona can be found on one of the transmission towers on the roof of Mauville City, though cannot be interacted with. However, the player can talk to an ederly lady, who wonders what could have motivated Winona to do something so reckless.

Manga

Main article: Winona (Adventures)

In the manga, Winona appears as the gym leader of Fortree City. She makers her debut when warning Norman to return to his gym, with Flannery on her Altaria. Later on, she makes another appearance in Fortree City, when Sapphire comes to challenge her. She has a much larger role on this point on, becoming Sapphire's coach and fighting alongside the other gym leaders against Kyogre and Groudon , and the two evil organisations that tried to destroy Hoenn.

It is later revealed that she used to have a romantic relationship with Sootopolis Gym Leader, Wallace .

Anime

Main article: Winona (anime)

Winona's first appearance in the anime was in the episode "Who's Flying Now?". Just as in the game, Winona is the Fortree City Gym Leader, though in the anime Winona's Swellow is a shiny Pokémon. When Ash made a visit to the Fortree Gym he discovered that Winona was not in the Gym, but that she was at a local festival. Upon meeting her, Ash is still unable to battle her due to Team Rocket's interference. The two battle in the next episode "Sky High Gym Battle". Ash won the battle using Grovyle, Swellow, and Pikachu against Winona's Altaria, Pelipper and her own Swellow. When defeated, Winona rewarded Ash with the Feather Badge.

Trivia

  • Her name Winona may possibly have a play on the word "wind" (hence the first three letters) which is associated with air or flying, which makes sense since she is a flying type trainer.
    • It also may be a play on the word "wing", also associated with flying.
  • In the Pokémon Adventures manga, she is portrayed as has a kind of relationship with Wallace, though nor in the anime or the games confirmed its legibility.
  • She has a shiny Swellow both in the games and anime. But it was replaced by other Flying type Pokémon on later installment (Pokémon Emerald).
