Serena (Japanese: セレナ Serena) is the female player character in Pokémon X and Y, and also serves as the rival in the same games if the player chooses to play as the male character. Her male counterpart is Calem.

In the games

As the protagonist

Serena is a girl living in Vaniville Town with her friends Calem, Tierno, Trevor, and Shauna. She recently moved into Vaniville Town. Her mom owns a Rhyhorn and Fletchling, the latter of which wakes Serena up at the start of the game.

As a non-playable character

Serena is a young girl who lives in Vaniville Town when the protagonist moves into town. Serena is the main rival of the character, choosing the starter Pokémon which is super effective to the player's. She is also the character who teaches the player and Shauna how to catch a Pokémon, catching a Bunnelby with the use of her Fletchling. Soon after, she can be seen in Santalune Forest with the other friends.

Serena is the child of two prominent Pokémon battlers, and is seen as one of the two best battlers of the group of friends, alongside the protagonist.

At Glittering Cave, Serena helps the player defeat Team Flare to save the fossil assistant, and is given the fossil not chosen afterward. She then battles with the player against Tierno and Trevor at Route 7. At the Tower of Mastery in Shalour City, Serena battles the player for the chance to get the Mega Ring.

The next time Serena battles the player is in front of the Coumarine Gym.

When the group of friends meets up and decides to go to the haunted area in Route 14, Serena is the only one of the friends to not go to the house, claiming that she has to train. She then helps the player defeat Team Flare at the Poké Ball Factory.

The next time Serena battles the player is in front of the Anistar Gym. After the player defeats the gym, she will ask for a rematch, but cancels her challenge after Lysandre announces his plan of eradicating all life forms not a part of Team Flare. She then helps the player defeat Team Flare get to the legendary Pokémon and defeat Team Flare for good.

After the player defeats the Champion, Serena can be battled in Kiloude City, where, when defeated, she will give the player an Absolite and tell the player to meet Professor Sycamore in Anistar City.

Quotes

Geosenge Town

"When I was in Lysandre's lab, the masked heroes told me what is going on. They also told me what Team Flare plans to do with the ultimate weapon! C'mon! Let's stop Team Flare… No… We have to stop Lysandre himself."

Team Flare Secret HQ

"We're not going to let you use the ultimate weapon!"
"But that doesn't give you the right to destroy everyone but the ones Team Flare chooses!"
"That's different! We competed for it, but…"
"What about Pokémon?"
"Tears… Why?!"
"It's not over yet! <Player's nickname>! Let's look for the Legendary Pokémon! Trainers are protected by Pokémon, but they protect Pokémon, too, right? Look! You can see the entrance to the lower floors over there!"
"Let's hurry."
"I don't believe it… What are you doing here?"
"…"
"I'm the one who should be apologizing. You came all the way out here, and I wasn't very considerate of your feelings… You are right. Friends should stick together. <Player's nickname>, we should all go together, right?"
Of course!: "I knew you'd agree!"
But…:
"OK! Shauna, <player's nickname> and I will go ahead. Stay close to us, OK?"
"Anyway, we have to hurry and stop it!"
"It's an electronic lock. What should we do?"
"Amazing, Shauna! You and Clemont's device are both full of surprises…"
"So… We're finally here. The Legendary Pokémon is inside. Let's go help it!"
"We're in the deepest part of the headquarters… It's somehow hard to breathe in here."
"Oh, Shauna… This again? <Player>! You take care of things here! I'll protect Shauna!"
"What a relief… Now they can't use the ultimate weapon."
"The Legendary Pokémon is gone, so you can't use the ultimate weapon anymore, right? You don't have to worry about the future all by yourself… I think everyone should work together to make a better, beautiful world…"
"<Player>! Shauna! Let's get out of here!"

Geosenge Town

"Thank you… We're all fine. Are you guys all OK, Tierno?"
"Thank you, <player's nickname>. I have so much respect for you as a friend. It's because I respect you that I want to beat you in battle as your rival! I really mean it!"

Kiloude City

  • Before battle
"Hey, <player nickname>? Would you battle with us?"
No: "Oh, that's disappointing."
Yes: "My Pokémon and I will show you what makes us special!"
  • Being defeated
  • After being defeated
"I'll think about what you did well and use this loss to make me better!"
"When we first set off on our journey, I thought it was really important how different I was from everyone else."
"But that doesn't really matter, does it?"
"Of course I'm different from others."
"I'm the only me!"
