Giselle is a character from Pokemon. She is a snobby schoolgirl who is full of herself and has the boys fawning all over her at Pokemon Tech. In the MCF series, she was one of Raina's earlier rivals in her early years. She is a girl with long brown hair, brown eyes, a white shirt with puffy sleeves, a blue shirt and skirt and red tie, white socks and black Mary Janes; she is voiced by Roxanne Beck.
In the anime, Giselle is a character of the day who appeared in The School of Hard Knocks.
Giselle confronted and belittled Joe after a recent loss against Misty. During her talk with Joe, it became apparent that Giselle is a bully who cared very little for young, inexperienced Trainers. Misty angrily challenged Giselle to a battle, to which the latter agreed to. Giselle defeated Misty's Starmie with aGraveler, despite the type disadvantage. After taunting the young Gym Leader, Giselle then started to lecture her fellow students.
Now Ash got angry and argued that Pokémon training was more than types and levels - one needs to be friends with them, too. Giselle laughed haughtily and called Ash a beginner. She teased him about having been on a journey for two months and only having two Badges and three Pokémon. She then proceeded to note that Pikachu are an awful choice for a starter Pokémon, and that they're more fitting as pets for little girls. Ash and Pikachu were extremely insulted and angered, and challenged Giselle to a battle.
Giselle used a Cubone. Without being able to useElectric-type moves, Ash told Pikachu to fight back in any way it could. Pikachu then began to attack Cubone with a series of random physical attacks such as biting and scratching. Eventually, Pikachu covered Cubone's eyes with its own skull helmet and Cubone ended up knocking itself out with its ownBonemerang attack. Giselle was shocked by the defeat and admitted that people can't learn through books alone.
Team Rocket then tried to raid the school, but Giselle led the charge against them and got all the students to assist in chasing the criminals away. Joe and Giselle reconciled, and Joe left the school to collect Badges for the Pokémon League.
