Pokémon X and Y

Kalos Power Plant
  • First meeting
"If you're just interested in the facts, I'd say we already have enough energy to power the device."
"What other work do you mean? Perhaps you mean taking out that annoying little Pokémon Trainer over there?"
"Ah ha ha! It would be my pleasure. Come on, little Trainer! Let's see what you've got!"
  • Before battle
"Allow me to introduce myself, intruder. My name is Aliana. As you can see, I'm one of Team Flare's Scientists. I'm researching a certain something that you wouldn't understand, anyway. Unfortunately for you, I've been charged with the simple task of your elimination."
  • Being defeated
"You're quite strong. Oh yes--very strong, indeed."
  • After being defeated
"Ah ha ha! Well, I certainly didn't expect you to be so interesting! I do hope we can meet again!"
Lysandre Labs
  • Before battle
"Ah ha ha! Why, if it isn't that fascinating little Trainer from the Kalos Power Plant. So we meet again, just as I said we would!"
  • Being defeated
"You sure are an interesting Trainer. You're far more capable than our useless Grunts."
  • After being defeated
"I don't have the key, but I'll let you pass. But which warp panel could it be? Which one cooould it be?"
  • If talked to again
"I had fun at the Kalos Power Plant. Of course, we could have generated electricity with Team Flare's technology, too, you know. We just didn't think it justified the cost. To create a world for us and us alone, we have to play it smart, you see."

Aliana in the anime

Aliana debuted in the anime in XY093. She was seen at Lysandre Labs with Bryony when Xerosic informed that she would be tasked with capturing 50% Zygarde, which Mable had recently failed to accomplish.

Aliana (bottom right) in Pokémon Adventures

Aliana makes her first appearance in the X & Y chapter alongside her fellow Team Flare members. She and Mable are tasked with taking the Mega Ring, which is currently in X's possession. Upon arriving at X's house, they burn it down and trap X into a corner. Y comes in and tries to save her friend, only for Mable's Houndoom to easily defeat her. Before it can finish Y off, X's Kanga saves Y, though she gets badly hurt by Aliana's Pyroar. With Kanga down, Aliana has her Pyroar grab X and begin dragging him away. X's baby Kangaskhan, Li'l Kanga, sees this and reacts to X's Mega Ring, allowing her to Mega Evolve into a Mega Kangaskhan. Li'l Kanga easily defeats Aliana and Mable's Pokémon, forcing them to retreat.

At Aquacorde Town, Aliana and Mable attack X's group while they stay at an inn. By having a fellow Team Flare member keep the other four inside the inn, the duo attack X's Kanga while he's alone and kidnap Li'l Kanga. After Y manages to escape, she informs X of what is going on. X attempts to use Mega Evolution to defeat them once again, but it fails since Li'l Kanga is separated from her mother. X instead uses Chespin to battle and defeat Aliana and Mable by pinning them to a tree with Pin Missile and rescues Li'l Kanga.


Aliana's Diggersby
Diggersby is Aliana's second known Pokémon. It was first used in Aquacorde Town, where it took Li'l Kanga from Kanga's pouch to be used as a hostage. It was used to battle against X and Chespin, where it used its ears to cause powerful damage. After rescuing Li'l Kanga, Chespin exploited Diggersby's strength to free X's friends and defeated it with a powerful headbutt, knocking Diggersby to the ground.

Diggersby's only known move is Mud Shot.

Aliana's Pyroar
Pyroar is Aliana's first known Pokémon. She was first used to burn down X's house in order to steal his Mega Ring. She defeated X's Kanga, only to be defeated by X's Li'l Kanga after it Mega Evolved into Mega Kangaskhan. It was later revealed that Pyroar was actually borrowed from Malva, who took it back after returning to active duty.

None of Pyroar's moves are known.
