Iris was the postergirl for the Pokemon anime during its run throughout the Generation of Racism. She is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike a black woman. Because of this possible similarity, she was made to live in the wilderness and eat nothing but crap, just
like unlike real black people. She was killed during the Battle of the Frenchmen, which caused Ash to start chasing some other eye candy for a while. This ushered in the Fancy Generation of Pokemon. Her favorite food is Axew.
