Edna

Edna (Japanese: クニ Kuni) is a character of the day from the anime who appeared in Time Warp Heals All Wounds. Her Japanese voice actress is Yuko Sato and her English voice actor is Annie Silver.

A Pokémon Breeder, Edna was at the town's train station when she finds May's Squirtle, and then May herself. When it begins to rain, May asks why she is there and Edna explains that she's waiting for the train to return from the other side of the mountain (but given the state of the tracks and station itself, there is evidence Edna is suffering from an extensive form of denial, further made conclusive by comments from her granddaughter Katrina).

Katrina comes to fetch Edna and to make sure she doesn't get sick in the bad weather. She leaves with the umbrella Katrina brought for her, talking to herself and wishing, "If only it had snowed that day."

Young Edna

Katrina recounts the story of Edna's painful past, telling May she was married to the local Pokémon Breeder, her grandfather Jonathan, who wanted to become a doctor. Jonathan wanted to leave for the city, but Edna couldn't leave town, and Jonathan left by train, where he died a year later. Except Edna didn't believe it and returned to the station every day for years, expecting his return. What she had wanted to tell Jonathan, which she had kept from him but confessed to Katrina, was that Edna had been pregnant with Katrina's mother at the time and hadn't told Jonathan yet; she was going to tell him once she caught up to him that day.

Edna had also lost her locket in the chase, bumping into a Gentleman at the station, where it fell onto the train tracks and remained until May's Squirtle finds it in the present

day. It's the object of time-travel, causing May, Squirtle, and Team Rocket's Meowth to travel back in time to the day—of the hour—just before Jonathan's departure. Using Squirtle's Ice Beam, May and Meowth change the day's rain into snow, allowing Edna to catch up, not bump into the Gentleman this time around, and tell Jonathan about the new addition to their family. Jonathan stays.

 

Upon returning to the present day, May learns her egg is about to hatch, and to proceed over the hatching, Jonathan, Edna, and Katrina are there. Katrina and Edna do not remember May, but she and Meowth do.
