Iris also plays a big role in the Anime. Not much is known about Iris before she meets Ash, but she decides to join him as a traveling companion early in the Best Wishes series, set in the Unova region.

In The Anime

Iris, native to Unova, acts as a guide for Ash and Pikachu when they first decide to embark on their journey there. Unlike many of Ash's previous traveling companions, Iris likes to rough it while traveling; she can frequently be seen climbing and swinging through trees. Similar to Ash's Pikachu never staying in its Pokéball, Iris' Axew likes to stay in her hair. Her catchphrase, "What a kid" Is usally directed toward Ash .
