Alexa (Japanese: パンジー Pansy) is a journalist from Lumiose City in Pokémon X and Y. She works at the Lumiose Press.

In the games

Alexa appears in Pokémon X and Y, working for a company as a journalist from Lumiose City. Her sister is the Santalune City Gym Leader, Viola. Alexa is first met in Santalune City, where she prevents the player from going to Route 4 until her sister, Viola, is defeated. After Viola is defeated, she will let the player pass and also give them an Experience Share.

The player later meets her at the Lumiose Press building on Estival Avenue. She will suggest various locations in Lumiose for the player to see and will offer to take the player.

A magazine detailing Alexa's journalism

Alexa first appeared in The Journalist from Another Region!, with her Gogoat and Helioptile.

When Helioptile bumped into Ash and his friends on Harvest Island, Ash used his Pikachu to battle it, but Helioptile fired an electric move, then Alexa arrived with Gogoat, and mentioned that the Helioptile is hers. Since both of Alexa's Pokémon were not native to the region at the time, Ash's Pokédex could not recognize them. Alexa then introduced herself, and mentioned that she came all the way from the Kalos region to write an article about the Grand Harvest Festival, which was the tradition of Harvest Island.

While there, she learned about a Pokémon Sumo Tournament that was going to take place there. When Ash was bumped by Rodney, who became Ash's new rival for the tournament, Alexa comforted him. At the end of the tournament, when Ash had won, Alexa had filmed the tournament, including Ash giving Rodney an apple after he lost. After the tournament was officially finished, Alexa decided to travel with the group.

In Mystery on a Deserted Island!, she went to an island with the group where it was known to have some treasure. After arrival, she filmed some footage about a sunken ship there and then passed through a gate that took her to some wild Pokémon that evolved from some stones. Continuing onward with a group of three Eevee, she found a secret passageway which led her to the treasure chest. After Alexa found the treasure and got the Eevee to evolve, the Pokémon began to respect her and the others on the island. Afterwards, she left with the group and waved her farewells to the Pokémon.

In A Pokémon of a Different Color!, after Alexa arrived on Cave Island, she temporarily left the group and rode on her Gogoat to find something to film. At the end of the episode, she returned to Ash and his friends and as she missed out on a Shiny Druddigon who lived on the island, Clair showed the Druddigon to her as she caught it earlier.

In Go, Go Gogoat!, it was revealed that Gogoat was Alexa's first Pokémon; she caught it after it helped her back up a cliff to her campsite.

In Best Wishes Until We Meet Again!, while Ash parted ways with Iris and Cilan, Alexa remained with him and followed him to Pallet Town. The next episode, she tells Ash that her sister is a Gym Leader in the Kalos region. At the end of the Best Wishes series, Alexa accompanies Ash as he travels to Kalos.

In Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, Alexa arrived in Kalos with Ash by plane. When Ash wanted to challenge her sister, Alexa explained that her gym isn't in Lumiose City, but rather Santalune City instead. She then makes a call off-screen to her sister, but reveals to Ash that she'll be gone for a while. After showing Ash the map of Lumiose City, she parts ways with Ash and wishes him good luck.

Alexa re-appeared in XY005 to watch Ash's battle against Viola, and she will re-appear again in XY006 to help Ash and his Pokémon in training.


Since her debut, Alexa is shown to be rather forgetful, a trait her Gogoat seems to have gotten used to. She carries out her journalism work with pleasure as well as seriousness, often working late into the night. In Best Wishes Until We Meet Again! she became so engrossed in her work that she failed to realize the crisis Team Rocket was causing. Despite this, she is clever and a competent battler as shown in Celebrating the Hero's Comet!. She is very cheerful and is often smiling and enthusiastic, a characteristic she shares with Ash with whom she gets along very well. She calmed the young Trainer down after his confrontation with Rodney and comforted him after saying farewell to Iris and Cilan. In Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin! she was notably disappointed when Ash got upset about not being able to battle her sister.


This listing is of Alexa's Pokémon in the Pokémon anime.

Alexa's Helioptile
Helioptile is Alexa's first known Pokémon. It is very shy, and often hides behind Alexa when it encounters something new. Helioptile first appeared jumping out of a flower field after getting lost, where it encountered Ash and his friends. When Ash tried to capture it, Helioptile became scared and attacked him in retaliation, until Alexa came and explained that Helioptile belonged to her. Later, Helioptile acted as a charger when Alexa needed to charge her recording equipment after the battery was low.

While Helioptile was initially hesitant of Ash, it would eventually befriend him as Alexa predicted, running into the young Trainer's arms in Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!. In BW142, Helioptile showed it had developed a good relationship with Pikachu, often linking their electricity. When Professor Oak began to study Helioptile, he was shocked by the timid Pokémon.

Helioptile's only known move is Parabolic Charge.

Alexa's Gogoat
Gogoat is Alexa's first Pokémon that she uses as both transportation and to hold her recording equipment. Alexa caught Gogoat after it bonded with her when it helped her up a cliff she fell off of and back to her campsite. Gogoat first appeared when it caught up with Alexa after she found Helioptile. During her travels in the Grand Harvest Festival on Harvest Island, Gogoat helped Alexa find where she had placed the magazine showing examples of her work. It later also helped her find her recording equipment in order for it to get charged.

In Go, Go Gogoat!, Gogoat was briefly left under the care of Ash, Iris and Cilan while Alexa was reporting on the Pokémon Center. Since they knew little about Gogoat, it became distant to the group. A boy named Tony approached Gogoat and bonded with it by touching its horns. Gogoat helped take Tony to go see his father and later went back to its Trainer.

In BW142, Gogoat allowed Professor Oak to ride on its back as he studied it.

Gogoat's known moves are Synthesis and Vine Whip.

Alexa's Noivern
Alexa sent out Noivern to protect her, Ash, Iris and Cilan from a couple of Gengar and Banette. It was later used to battle Team Rocket.

In BW142, Noivern was brought out so Professor Oak could observe it. In his excitement the Professor began tugging on Noivern's ears before the Sound Wave Pokémon eventually attacked. Noivern was then fed and returned to its Poké Ball. Noivern is completely loyal to Alexa but will bite someone if it isn't fed immediately after work.

In XY005 Alexa used Noivern to help Ash train Pikachu and Fletchling to withstand attacks from Viola's Pokémon.

Noivern's known moves are Dragon Pulse, Bite, Boomburst, and Gust.
