"Prior to the release of Pokémon X and Y..."

FYI, X and Y isn't out yet. --Reliジーランス? 16:55, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

I say hide it until X and Y are released, same with Xavier. --Reliジーランス? 12:35, 19 June 2013 (UTC)


Can some kind of redirect get added for Serena without the (game)? I know there's actually a character of the day named Serena but I have a suspicion this page will be searched for a little bit more. Ikarishipper900 (talk) 18:36, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

It now looks like Serena will be a major character in the anime as well, so the character of the day will need their page moving once this is confirmed. Digifiend (talk) 21:13, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

I know this is a bit OT, but shouldn't be Serena(Hoenn) renamed to Professor Serena? Squirtleoshawott461 (talk) 11:16, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

Serena's hair color

Serena's page currently says that her default hair color is brown. However, her picture shows that she's blond. Can someone fix this so it says that her default hair color is blond? --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 02:52, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Also, her eyes are gray, not brown. --Poliwhirl (talk) 03:05, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
Her NPC appearance shows her with brown hair and eyes. Also, her artwork is with the brown hair, not the blonde. The blonde hair in the game is much paler. Crystal Talian 04:11, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Left picture is blonde, middle picture is brown (default), right picture is black. The eye color was probably a mistake since I copied Calem's page. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:13, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
I think Calem and Serena both have gray eyes.--Poliwhirl (talk) 08:04, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Korean name for Serena

Her Korean name is 세레나 Serena.

Name for PC vs. Name for Rival

As the new trailer showed, her default player name is Yvonne while her rival one is Serena it would seem. Should this page and that of the male character be changed to reflect this? - unsigned comment from Clark Griswald (talkcontribs)

A mistake in her capture tutorial in X & Y

When I was playing both X & Y, during her capture tutorial, the Bunnelby she was catching used Leer on her Fletching and it worked. Fletchling's Big Pecks ability should have prevented that from happening. Is this trivia worthy? --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 23:18, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Two ideas, both being that Big Pecks might not be its ability. It could be a second ability that we do not know about yet, though unlikely. Otherwise, it could be Gale Wings, unless we can directly see Fletchling's ability. --Super goku (talk) 23:31, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Other Pokemon owned but never seen in battle

During the course of the game, Serena picks up the fossil you didn't choose as well as one of the remaining Kanto starters. I assume this goes for Calem as well. Shauna got a Kanto starter, too. Is it worth mentioning on their pages that they have these unseen Pokemon? Though I suppose Serena and Calem might never have revived the fossil... Yamiidenryuu (talk) 14:53, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

In the case of the fossil, there's no guarantee that they ever got it revived, so that's probably not worth adding. I don't know about the Kanto starters. Does the game ever make it explicitly clear which of them Shauna and Serena/Calem choose after you choose yours? It could be that they pick them the same way they pick the Kalos starter (Serena/Calem picks the one strong against yours, and Shauna picks the last one), but there's no guarantee there, either (unless I missed something). --AndyPKMN (talk) 01:23, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
No confirmation on which starter the two get, sadly, just that they get one of them. It's kind of a weird situation. Yamiidenryuu (talk) 15:10, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Default hair style

In the game, is it random? I picked the male character and Serena has a pony tail. Penubag (talk) 02:23, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

Just the NPC design. Ataro (talk) 02:28, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
Wait what? So all NPC Serenas have a pony tail? But if you pick her you can choose the normal hairstyle? Penubag (talk) 04:47, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
...Yes. Ataro (talk) 04:59, 13 November 2013 (UTC)


In Snowbelle City there's an NPC that mentions having a child around your age that recently left Vaniville Town. In my game (where I chose to play the male character), he says "daughter". If someone can confirm that it is "son" if the player chose the female character, would that be enough to say that he's Calem/Serena's father? Or at the very least put it as trivia?Glik (talk) 05:20, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

iirc, that person also says daughter if you play as the female character. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 05:23, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
Given the color of his skin, it's also likely he's Shauna's father. Also, I hear reports from some people that he can also say his son left, so someone will need to check on that. Either way, it's too speculative. Ataro (talk) 05:30, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
Well, that would be true if Shauna was a boy when you played as a girl. She isn't, so there's no argument against it. Yveltal0003 (talk) 11:12, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
I can confirm that he refers to a "son" when the player's character is female. He can't be Shauna's father. Tiddlywinks (talk) 20:13, 3 August 2014 (UTC)


Maybe I'm overthinking it, but... Coudn't Serena name be an anagram? Both in Japonese and English, if you take the name's letters and put them in order, thei spell "Erneas", Xerneas without the X (It's japonese name is also the same). It doesn't seem intentional, except because Calem is actualy an anagram too (Male C.).Silent Raincloud (talk) 12:20, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Nope, neither case makes any sense. They are meant to be puns for "calm" (Calem) and "serene" (Serena). Berrenta (talk) 13:29, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
I know the oficial name origins, I was thinking more in a tivia fact.Silent Raincloud (talk) 16:04, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
