201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

In X and Y, Emma is a young girl living in the dark alleyways of Lumiose City with her Espurr friend, Mimi (Japanese: もこお Mokō). She is initially an illiterate orphan who doesn't even have enough money to buy Poké Balls. She meets Looker and the player during their first case, where concerned mothers reported that their children have been hanging out in suspicious alleyways. In reality, the children were playing with and protecting Emma and Mimi. Looker invites Emma to live at the Looker Bureau and work as his assistant. Though she is interested, Emma doesn't want to leave Mimi behind. Looker extends the invitation to Mimi as well, but Mimi is terrified of adults and runs off. After the player has found and befriended Mimi, Emma is much friendlier towards Looker and accepts his invitation, heading back to the Looker Bureau with him, Mimi, and the player. Emma then begins to learn how to read, write, and do basic arithmetic under Looker's tutelage.

During the following case, Emma returns to the Bureau to find a hysterical Tourist angrily shouting insults in Japanese (English in non-English languages) about Looker, who had left moments ago under the assumption that the woman wanted tea. Speaking Japanese (English in non-English languages), Emma defends Looker while Mimi translates their conversation telepathically for the player and Looker, revealing that the woman had her Pokémon stolen at the Lumiose Station. When Looker returns and learns of the situation, Emma tries to discourage him from helping the woman, but Looker insists that anyone in distress deserves their help and quickly leaves for the station. Emma then begs for the player to help Looker, revealing that he is defenseless because his only Pokémon died during a past case.

The culprits at the station turn out to be the Lumiose Gang, a trio of gangsters, who stole the Pokémon in order to lure Looker to their turf for a challenge. Emma had unintentionally become their boss after beating them in a fight, and they recognized her strength as leadership, but she stopped hanging around them once she took up residence at the Looker Bureau. Once the gangsters are defeated by the player, Emma shows up and demands that they return the stolen Pokémon and apologize to Looker.

Emma steadily grows worried that she and Mimi are a financial burden on Looker, though he assures her that they have enough money to get by and encourages her to focus on her studies. Still feeling guilty, Emma sets off to look for part-time work at a café that she saw was hiring. It turns out that the café was actually Lysandre Café and Emma was tricked into being a test subject for Xerosic's invention, the Expansion Suit. This leads to her disappearing for long stretches of time, which worries Looker greatly.

When in the Expansion Suit, Emma is given the codename Essentia (Japanese: エスプリ Esprit). The suit enhances her physical abilities to superhuman levels, gives her the ability to override a Poké Ball's programming, and allows her to change her appearance. While running his tests, Xerosic finds that Emma has no experience as a Trainer and teaches her the basics, also allowing her to borrow his Pokémon. However, the Pokémon prefer playing with Emma instead of battling, which forces Xerosic to control the suit remotely. Emma falls unconscious while the remote-control function is engaged, and she has no memory of anything that happens while she is "asleep".

During her tests as Essentia, she behaves like a robot and follows Xerosic's every command. The first test has her sneak into the Lumiose Museum and vandalize a painting. Afterwards, she begins lurking in dark alleys and challenging unsuspecting people to battle, stealing their Poké Balls afterwards. This catches the attention of Looker, who works with the player to bait and catch the perpetrator. When she gets cornered, Mimi runs in, tipping Looker off to Essentia's true identity. Xerosic's control over the suit starts to malfunction after Essentia tries to attack Mimi, only to accidentally hurt Looker. Essentia flees the scene and the tests are temporarily suspended.

The following day, the player is sent to apprehend Xerosic at Lysandre Labs. After the player defeats Essentia in a series of battles, Looker arrives and demands that Xerosic release Emma. After the suit's remote-control function starts glitching again, Xerosic agrees, letting Emma go and allowing Looker to take him into custody.

After Xerosic is brought to justice, Looker reveals to Emma that he is a member of the International Police and that he must leave to continue his civic duty. However, he feels strongly towards Emma and in order to ensure that she has a bright future, purchases the entire building where Looker Bureau was located, and instructs Emma to use it however she sees fit. As the new head detective, Emma vows to keep Lumiose City safe with her identity as Essentia, using the suit and Pokémon that Xerosic gave her.

201 Spoilers end here. 201

After completing the Looker storyline, the player can have a rematch with Emma in her Expansion Suit once per day on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. On Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, she will not be wearing the Expansion Suit and talk about her duties as the head of the Looker Bureau.

Quotes

Pokémon X and Y

Looker Chapter 2
Lumiose City, South Boulevard alleyway
  • First meeting, after Looker suggests that Mimi considers the alley to be its territory
"Yup, old man, you got that right." (Looker demands to know who spoke.) "Oh, nobody special. But this little sweetie right here is Mimi. That's what I named it, anyway." (Looker asks her to return Mimi to its Poké Ball.) "Huh? What Poké Ball?" (Looker is confused.) "I'm not a Trainer! Mimi is my friend. I have no money to buy Poké Balls, so I can't be a Trainer, you get it? Anyway, Mimi and I don't need a Poké Ball to be friends!" (Looker begs her pardon and asks why they're in the alley.) "Well, we're all playing, that's all. Everybody here is a friend of mine. What are you asking for? Do you want to join or something?" (One of the preschoolers protests that grown-ups aren't allowed and Mimi echoes her.) "Oh, put a sock in it! Play nice, both of you! How would you like to get left out just 'cause you're old and stuff?" (Looker asks why they picked a dark alley, saying kids need sunshine.) "Oh, really? Well... Mimi and I have always lived in alleys, so I don't know much about sunshine." (Looker inquires about her family.) "They're gone. I'm alone." (Looker responds briefly.) "Well, but... But Mimi is sort of my family. We stick together." (Looker excitedly suggests she stay at the Looker Bureau.) "Wha..." (Looker continues and approaches Mimi, who runs away.) "Mimi gets scared pretty easy. Afraid of humans, I guess. Especially grown-ups. Hey... Mr. Looker-guy... For a minute there, I was kinda happy that you invited me to stay with you... You're pretty cool. But I can't. Mimi likes it better here. I can't leave Mimi behind. We stick together." (Looker says he wants to try something else, with his dependable partner.) "P-partner?" (Looker tells his partner to befriend Mimi.)
  • If talked to during the assignment
"Umm... <player>? If you wanna make friends with Mimi, you're gonna have to track it down first. There's, like, tons of alleys in Lumiose City. Mimi wanders all over them on its strolls. If you find it, try talking to it... Or do something to make Mimi like you."
  • After finding Mimi
"Awesome! <Player>, are you wicked or what? How'd you get Mimi to like you so fast?" (Looker asks if she's ready now to join the Looker Bureau.) "OK! I'm ready! As long as Mimi's with me! ♪ I'm pretty curious to find out what a detective does!" (They arrive at the Looker Bureau.) "Wow... So this is the Looker Bureau? It's sure warmer than the alley. This is gonna be great, huh, Mimi?" (Looker welcomes her, then asks her name.) "Who, me? I'm just Emma. Nice to meet you! ♪"
Looker Bureau
  • Before Looker Chapter 3
"Oh, hi, <player>! Did you ever go to school? School is a place where they teach you all kinds of things, so I heard. Guess what? I told Mr. Looker I'd never gone to school, and he said he'd teach me himself!"
Looker Chapter 3
Looker Bureau
  • After Looker leaves the Bureau
"I'm home, Mr. Looker! Oh! <Player>! Welcome back! Is Mr. Looker out? And who's this old lady?" (The woman, a Japanese tourist whose Pokémon were stolen and who understands but doesn't speak English, takes offense and insults Emma and Looker.) "……ちょっと オバサン なんて こと いうの……? あたしのことは どうでも いい…… けど ルッカーおじさん のこと わるく いうのは ゆるさない…… ……それにさ あたしが おじさんの こどもの わけ ないよ ……おじさんに しつれい だよ" (The woman, surprised, asks if Emma understands her.) "うん…… まあね…… だいたいで なんとなく だけど。 このまち って おそとに いると いろんな くにの ことばで おはなし してるのが きこえるから いつのまにか おぼえちゃったの。" (Turning to Mimi:) "Hmm... If we keep going like this, then <player> is gonna be totally lost... And I don't feel like opening up the trash talk with this old lady again... Hey, Mimi! How about it? Do you think you can help us out with your power?" (After Mimi uses its power, the woman apologizes and explains that she was stressed because her Pokémon were stolen.) "ふーん…… で? どこで ぬすまれたの?" (The woman says it was at Lumiose Station.) "……えき ……ガラの わるい れんちゅう。 もしかして…… あのこ たち かな?" (Looker returns.) "Um, Mr. Looker? This old lady here says her Pokémon were stolen. I'd guess the thieves are still in Lumiose Station..." (Looker prepares to set off after them.) "Just a minute, Mr. Looker." (Looker is anxious.) "I'd bet anything that the guy who stole this old lady's Pokémon was part of the Lumiose Gang. They're rough types, you know? If we stick our noses in, that means a battle for sure..." (Looker doesn't recognize their name.) "Yeah. So let's drop it, OK? You know, that old lady was talking trash about you while you were out. She ain't nice. It's not worth having a great big fight to help a person like her." (Looker berates her strongly and leaves for Lumiose Station.) "Mr. L-L-Looker... ... ... ... <Player>, help Mr. Looker! Please! He doesn't even have a Pokémon! H-he once said something... A long time ago, he had a Pokémon. A partner that was always with him... But... They were on a case...and...and...I don't know what happened, but...his partner didn't make it... If he tries to stand up to the Lumiose Gang without a single Pokémon on his side, he doesn't have a chance! Oh, please! Oh, please. Go help him! You're his partner now, aren't you? Don't let him go alone!
Yes: "Oh, <player>. Thank... you... The Lumiose Gang is always somewhere on the platforms at Lumiose Station, up on North Boulevard... I think you're powerful enough to face them, <player>... But be ready for anything! Just in case!"
No: "Don't say that! Mr. Looker has faith in you, <player>! He truly does! He...he said that when he looks at you, it almost makes him feel like he has his lost Pokémon partner back again! He...he said there's something in your eyes, somehow the same look... So he felt he could trust you... You're his partner now, aren't you? Don't let him go alone!" (Returns to Yes/No.)
  • If spoken to again, she repeats her "Yes" response.
Lumiose Station
  • After the player has defeated the Lumiose Gang
"Stop it, all of you!" (Looker is surprised.) "Stop it! I mean it! And return those stolen Pokémon!" (Nix complains that they were lonely after Emma, their boss, ditched them.) "Oh, put a sock in it! I said up front--don't count me in. You went ahead and called me boss without even asking what I wanted. I decide for myself! Now, back off before I really lose it!" (Nix apologizes and gives back the stolen Pokémon.) "Right. Well, enough said. I'll let it go this time, but... You need to say sorry to the lady you stole from. And to Mr. Looker, too!" (Nix apologizes to Looker who accepts the apology and says it's time to head back to the Bureau.) "OK!" (Looker pauses and offers the gang the chance to visit Emma at the Looker Bureau if they can reform.) "Mr. L-L-Looker..."
Looker Bureau
  • When they return
"Mr. Looker... I'm really sorry about what happened earlier... When that woman insulted you, I just saw red and I... I..." (Looker acknowledges her contrition, then asks about her being the gang's boss.) "Oh, it's just silly. I wasn't in the gang for real! I had a big fight with them one time, and after I took them down, they figured I was their boss. It was all their idea, not mine!" (Nix appears and promises Looker the gang will reform.) "... ... ..." (Looker is enthused and Nix says bye to Emma.) "Hey, Mr. Looker?" (Looker turns to Emma.) "Mr. Looker... You said there is no substitute for honest work if you want to make a difference in this world. But I don't do any work at all... You asked me to be your assistant. But I've never done any work the whole time I've been staying here. All I've done is learn things from you... Is that really enough? Is it really OK for me to be here?" (Looker assures her that learning is very important, and she doesn't need to worry.) "But, Mr. Looker... We're always here in the Looker Bureau. And there's almost never any clients! Are Mimi and I just getting in your way? I mean, you went and turned down taking money from that tourist lady. Be straight with me, Mr. Looker. I'm asking, really, if it's really OK for Mimi and I to stay here...moneywise?"
  • Later, alone with Mimi
"Hey, Mimi..."
"Mr. Looker said we didn't need to worry about anything, y'know? But I just don't feel like we can keep depending on him like this forever. He lets us stay here for free and pays for all the food we eat..."
"So I think I need to do something."
"Thanks to Mr. Looker, I can read now, right? And I've seen signs around town for part-time work."
"The signs say it's easy work and anyone can learn it. Maybe even I can do it, then! I'm going over there right now to ask them for a job! What do you think, Mimi?"
"Hee hee hee, really?"

  • As Suspicious Woman "???"
"Excuse me... Are you perhaps a Trainer? If you have a moment, how about a little battle with me?"
Yes: "I am just itching for a good battle... Let us begin at once!"
No: "I'm disappointed. And you looked strong, too. Is something the matter? If you just need a little time to prepare, I would be happy to wait."
  • Upon being defeated
"How wonderfully strong!"
  • After being defeated

Yes: "I can't wait to see which Pokémon you use! Let's have a great battle!"
No: "Really, no? But why-y-y-y-y? I can wait if you need a sec. Why don't you go get the very strongest Pokémon you have?"
  • Upon being defeated
"Tee hee hee hee..."
  • After being defeated
"Wow, Mr./Miss Trainer, your Pokémon are super strong! They're so awesome. I sure wish I had Pokémon like that. I could really do well with those Pokémon. In fact... Hand them over right now." (She transforms and Looker jumps in.) "RECURRENT INTERFERENCE."
South Boulevard alleyway
  • As Suspicious Lady "???"
"Welcome, welcome. Step right up. I didn't expect you to show. But here you are. Heh heh heh... Let's get into it."

No: "Oh? You're scared to battle? Are you sure?"
  • Upon being defeated
"Mmm... Wonderful... I want that Poké Ball..."
  • After being defeated
"You really do have some of the best Pokémon... So why not give up already and hand them over to me?" (The woman transforms.) "RELINQUISH EVERY POKÉMON YOU POSSESS. COOPERATE OR I WILL TAKE THEM BY FORCE." (Looker interrupts.) "DO NOT OBSTRUCT ME. I WILL ERADICATE YOU." (Mimi appears and approaches her.) "... ... ..." (Mimi excitedly dances around her.) "THIS CREATURE... I DO NOT UNDERSTAND ITS PROCESS." (Looker begins to understand, but she remains focused on Mimi.) "OBSTRUCTION... ERADICATE OBSTRUCTION." (Looker covers Mimi and is hurt.) "WHY DO YOU PROTECT THIS POKÉMON? I DO NOT UNDERSTAND YOUR PROCESS. IRRELEVANT. COMMENCE ERADICATION PROCEDURE..." (Looker asks Emma to stop.) "EMMA?" (Looker tells her she is Emma.) "... ... ..." (Looker presses her.) "I AM NOT AN EMMA. I AM ESSENTIA." (Looker is steadfast, and Mimi calls to her.) "... ... ..." (Looker worries about Emma.) "... ... ..." (Looker demands a response from Emma.) "... ... ...Ugh!" (Looker calls her.) "AUUUGGGHHHHHHHHH!!" (Looker asks what's wrong.) "MUST...DISCONTINUE..."

(Xerosic tells her the trials are now complete.) "Yawwwn! Oh, really? Then I guess I've got to start looking for a new job again." (She turns around.) "Huh? Wait? Why is everyone here? I thought it was a secret that I was working here!" (Looker asks her if she's alright.) "Hm? What do you mean? I've just been taking a nap. My job here was really easy. All I had to do was wear this suit while I snoozed away."
"What are you doing here, Mr. Looker? I thought you were in the hospital!" (Looker says he got out and came to find her.) "Oh, I see. I was afraid you might be mad because I started working without telling you. I kept it a secret all this time... You really are a great detective, aren't you, Mr. Looker? You found me anyway!"

Tell him he's wrong!" (Looker tells her they will always have a bond, and Xerosic backs him up.) "Dr. Xerosic..." (Xerosic gifts her the Expansion Suit and his Pokémon.) "Dr. Xerosic... Dr. Xerosic, you've tried to do terrible things to the world, I guess. I find it hard to see you as that kind of person. I only became a Pokémon Trainer thanks to your being there for me. ... ... ... I will always cherish your Pokémon and your suit, Dr. Xerosic. I won't forget our bonds, either..." (Looker reminds everyone that the train will leave soon.) "Mr. Looker... I think I understand...

Emma first debuts as Essentia in the X & Y chapter. She attacks the Tower of Mastery in order to obtain the secrets of Mega Evolution. By keeping Korrina distracted upstairs with her Trevenant, Essentia interrogates Gurkinn on the bottom floor. When Gurkinn reveals that only his family and people he has entrusted a Mega Ring to know about it, Essentia begins attacking him. Gurkinn attempts to escape, but the injury he received from Trevenant's attacks prevents him from moving quickly. As Gurkinn is trapped into a corner surrounded by flames, Korrina comes down to save him.

Gurkinn also sends out his Heracross and Mega Evolves it to attack Essentia's Phantump. Gurkinn and Korrina attempt to escape, but find that Trevenant has slowly be covering the tower in its roots, preventing any attempt at escape. Having no choice but to protect the secrets of Mega Evolution, Gurkinn and Korrina have their Pokémon activate the Tower of Mastery's self destruct switch, causing the tower to collapse and destroy itself. As the tower collapses, Essentia tells Gurkinn her name and denies his previous claim that she is a member of Team Flare.
