Serena (Japanese: セレナ Serena) is a future traveling companion of Ash who debuted in Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!.
Serena first appeared in Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, where she was forcibly woken up by her mother's Fletchling. In Lumiose City Pursuit!, she attempted to practice Rhyhorn racing after being encouraged by her mother, a famous Rhyhorn racer herself. However, Serena's attempts at controlling her mother's Rhyhorn ended with her being sent crashing into the ground.
Later that evening, Serena complained about her earlier practice leaving several scratches on her face. She sat down to watch a news report on an incident that was occurring in Lumiose City. On screen she saw Ash Ketchum trying to calm down a rampaging Garchomp at Prism Tower and recognized Ash as a boy she had known in her childhood. The next day, while feeding Rhyhorn, Serena thought aloud that something interesting was going to happen and that it involved Ash.
She began her Pokémon journey in XY003 when set off to Professor Sycamore's lab in Lumiose City. Immediately upon arriving, Serena questioned the Professor about the boy on television and he confirmed that it was indeed Ash Ketchum. However, to Serena's disappointment, Ash had already left Lumiose City the previous day. Serena was then offered to choose her starter Pokémon.
In XY004, Serena chose Fennekin, received a Pokédex, and started her journey. Later that day, she continued to travel with Fennekin, but didn't want to camp out for the night after seeing some wild Venipede. She was attacked by a wild Vespiquen that she mistook for a person, only for Fennekin to scare Vespiquen away. Afterward, Serena met a Nurse Joy who told her where to find the nearest Pokémon Center.
In XY005, she finally reached Santalune City and found Ash during his gym battle with Viola. She introduced herself to him, Clemont, and Bonnie.
- Unlike May and Dawn, whose designs remained identical to their game counterparts, Serena's design received minor cosmetic changes that differentiate her anime design to the design of her game counterpart, including:
- Her shirt collar is white instead of black.
- The sunglasses on her hat are absent.
- Her hat has a black bow, unlike her game counterpart.
- She wears a backpack instead of a purse.
- Her eyes are blue.
