Hero Overview
Nurse Joy
Hello, and Welcome to the Pokémon Center. We restore your tired Pokémon to full health.
~ Nurse Joy

Nurse Joy (Japanese: ジョーイ Jooi) is a nurse who works at Pokémon center and lives the city.


Nurse Joy made her debut in Pokémon Emergency. With his Pikachu critically injured from the events of the last episode, Ash rushed the Electric Mouse Pokémon to the Pokémon Center in Viridian City with the help of the Officer Jenny of the area. After healing Pikachu, Team Rocket overtook the Pokémon Center, forcing her to rely on her own Pikachu generator built inside the lab. While they hid from Team Rocket, Nurse Joy activated the computer and started to transfer the Poké Balls containing injured Pokémon to the Pokémon Center in Pewter City. The next morning, Pewter City's Nurse Joy called and told her sister that all the Pokémon had made it safely to her center, to which the Viridian Nurse Joy was grateful.

Vermilion City's Nurse Joy and Chansey were often busy thanks to Lt. Surge's Raichu. She stopped Ash and Misty from fighting, reminding them that the hospital required peace. Following Ash's Gym defeat in Electric Shock Showdown, Nurse Joy offered Ash her Thunder Stone to evolve Pikachu into Raichu, but Ash accepted Pikachu's refusal to do so. Nurse Joy then advised Ash that Pikachu would require more rest to regain its stamina for its upcoming rematch.

In Sparks Fly for Magnemite, Ash went to Nurse Joy to heal Pikachu after he developed a cold. This Nurse Joy was uncharacteristically ill-tempered, but nevertheless, she instructed Ash to leave Pikachu with her overnight. Meanwhile, a horde of Grimer stopped the local hydroelectric plant from working. The power outage cut off power to all of the Pokémon Center's machines, which threatened all of the ill and injured Pokémon. After Ash caught Muk, Gringey City's power was restored. Afterwards, Nurse Joy thanked Ash for his assistance, which helped inspire her to become a better nurse.
