Coco Pommel, or Miss Pommel, is a female Earth pony and supporting character who first appears in the season four episode Rarity Takes Manehattan. She is a Bridleway dressmaker and Suri Polomare's former assistant.
Development and design
Coco is an Earth pony with an off-white coat and two-tone blue mane and tail. She has a similar color scheme to "Cultivar". She wears a white-bordered lavender sailor collar with a scarlet tie and a tri-shade hair clip in the back of her mane. Her cutie mark is a lavender floppy hat with a scarlet feather. Her name is a reference to Coco Chanel, a famous French fashion designer and iconic perfumer. The word "pommel" is a term for the front of a saddle, also commonly known as the "swell" in the West.
On April 3, 2014, the official Facebook page of Gameloft's mobile game was asked regarding the game's addition of Trenderhoof, Astro Pony, and Richard the Hoovenheart "pretty random selection if you ask me, why not Coco Pommel?" and responded "Well, Coco Pommel is a nice idea too. We'll keep that in mind."
In mid-May 2015, IDW's Bobby Curnow stated regarding My Little Pony: Friends Forever "I think characters like Cheese and Coco are ripe for FF... neither have been pitched though, if I recall correctly."
Depiction in the series
Coco is employed by Suri Polomare as her assistant during Rarity Takes Manehattan and accompanies her during Manehattan's Fashion Week. She is responsible for making the dresses; after Suri copies Rarity's designs and her fabric, she tasks Coco with making the dresses.
Coco is depicted as a soft-spoken and somewhat shy pony. She is routinely put down by Suri, especially when she remarks that Coco almost got her disqualified when remaking her dresses with Rarity's fabric—Coco defends herself stating she was simply trying to make sure Suri would win. Throughout the episode, she unwillingly backs up Suri's comments and lies towards Rarity and her friends.
Coco appears near the end of the episode and presents Rarity with her trophy from Fashion Week. She explains that Suri lied to Rarity and her friends about her losing in the hope that she would win by default should Rarity’s absence be counted as a forfeit. She also says that working with Suri for so long gave her the impression that it "really is everypony for herself" in Manehattan. However, after seeing the generosity Rarity showed to her friends and the generosity they reciprocated, she realized that there is more for her out there, so she quit her job as Suri's assistant. She then presents Rarity with a small gift of a spool of rainbow-colored thread as a thank you.
Rarity offers Coco a job with her friend to make all the costumes for his next show, to which Coco exhibits a subtle excitement. She is last seen waving her new friends goodbye at the Manehattan train station.
In Made in Manehattan, Miss Pommel posts flyers around Manehattan asking for volunteers to help put together the Midsummer Theater Revival, an event that she states that she loved participating in when she was a filly. She receives some help in the form of Rarity and Applejack, who were summoned to Manehattan by the Cutie Map.
In The Saddle Row Review, Rarity hires Miss Pommel as a salespony for her Manehattan boutique, but she comes down with a cold, preventing her from working during the grand opening.
Miss Pommel is mentioned several times in Honest Apple.
