Tara is a tough, cunning girl of the Bike gang from the episode "The Bridge Bike Gang." She always hangs out with the gang leader, Chopper. She attempted to battle Ash using her Cloyster but Misty butts in Ash's battle because she wants to battle the water Pokemon.
Misty tries to call out Starmie but Psyduck comes out, causing Tara to laugh her butt off. Misty tries to get Psyduck to fight, but it only makes Tara laugh harder. When Psyduck gets a headache, Misty thinks she'll win but the headache isn't strong enough to have Psyduck release it's psychic energy. Tara has a good laugh and beats Misty right before Team Rocket arrives.
Since Jessie and James were once in the gang, Tara and the gang decides to help them crush Ash in battle. But upon hearing Ash and his friends reasons for crossing the bridge, the bikers help them reach the Pokemon center and make them unofficial members of the gang. Brock tells Tara to call him "Honey" and gets slapped because of it.
