Solidad (Japanese: サオリ Saori) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. She is a Pokémon Coordinator from Pewter City who first appeared in May, We Harley Drew'd Ya!.


Solidad made her debut appearance in May, We Harley Drew'd Ya!, where it was revealed that she had defeated Drew in his very first Pokémon Contest, causing him to cry. Since then they seem to have become friends. They see each other often in Contests and they also keep in touch. She also noticed that Drew became more competitive, and she thinks May is the reason for this.

In Channeling the Battle Zone!, she battled May in the semifinal round of the Kanto Grand Festival. She was able to counter May's attacks as she had previously observed her battling style. She managed to win the battle against May, and then she won the final stage, giving her the title of Top Coordinator. Similarly to Drew, May also cried after being defeated by Solidad.

She was last known to be traveling in Johto and in Staging a Heroes' Welcome!, she made a cameo appearance along with Harley and Drew, watching May perform live on TV at the Wallace Cup.


Solidad is more mature than fellow Coordinators May and Drew, but still holds them in high esteem. She and Brock are old friends and she used to see him often when he was still the Gym Leader of Pewter Gym, she even knew him from before. She also stated that she is old friends withHarley, and that she finds him to be an interesting person.
