* {{Lolicon}}: Possibly, assuming the NPC is correct. According to a 2011 interview in ''Nintendo Dream'', Caitlin was designed to look only fourteen in her initial appearance in the games.

* {{Leitmotif}}: The original version of the Frontier Brain battle theme from ''Emerald'' plays in ''Sun and Moon'' [[spoiler: during battles against her in the Battle Tree]], GBA trumpets and all. This was likely intentional instead of using the remastered version from the Hoenn remakes as [[spoiler:this Anabel is from the original ''Emerald'' timeline as opposed to the current one.]]

* UnexpectedCharacter: Her return and expanded development in ''Sun and Moon'' was very unexpected to say the least, as she hadn't appeared in a main series game since her debut in ''Emerald''.

* TheQuietOne: Anabel is actually the most soft-spoken of the Frontier Brains. spoiler:She grows out of it by ''Sun and Moon'', but she still manages to be rather mellow, especially in comparison to Looker.

These special trainers are heads of special facilities that specialize in Pokémon battles. Normally these places are only accessible once you've beaten the main game, and for good reason: the game's AI takes the kid gloves off and provide some of the hardest challenges the game has to offer. Only ''very'' determined players have a chance of conquering these places.

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Although most Frontier Brains and even other trainers can be this, she takes this trope UpToEleven due to the nature of the Battle Tower itself making most unprepared trainers ''[[MeaningfulName unable]]'' to defeat her facility. Probably why she's the leader.

* IdiotHair: Possibly mischievous-type.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: You thought Tucker's Latias was a threat? She has the Latios to match! It has both Psychic and Dragon Claw for STAB, supported with Calm Mind and Recover.
* LargeHam: A prominent aversion, even in comparison to Lucy, who was known to give a cold Badass Boast. Anabel doesn't waste time boasting or making speeches like the others. She just wants to see your talent.

* NonElemental: Her WeaponOfChoice is to field Snorlax, literally her best for last (and this alongside her legendary Pokemon, too). In the first fight it's packing Belly Drum and Body Slam, so try to hold out for it. In the second fight, it's a full on ''Curselax'' that brings Return and a Rest-Chesto Berry combo to the party.
