Olympia in the anime

Olympia was mentioned, though not by name, in Tag Team Battle Inspiration!, where it was revealed that Tierno challenged Olympia prior to meeting up with Ash and his friends again, but he lost.

She debuted in Cloudy Fate, Bright Future!, where she told the group about Ash's Frogadier's past. She also predicted Ash and his friends, along with Team Rocket, will be the victims of a crisis, and then blocked Team Rocket's attempt to steal the giant sundial. It was also revealed that she had foreseen the battle between Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre from Mega Evolution Special III, allowing the people of Kalos to take precautions for the weather anomalies caused by the clash of the Legendary Pokémon.

In All Eyes on the Future!, Olympia had a Gym battle against Ash. Eventually, Ash was able to defeat her, thus earning his seventh Kalos League Badge, the Psychic Badge. She also told Professor Sycamore about a vision she had seen from the upcoming crisis.

She reappeared in a flashback in The Synchronicity Test!

In Championing a Research Battle!, Olympia spoke with Diantha about the threat that Kalos was to face in the future, and showed her a vision of Zygarde.

She appeared in a fantasy in A League of His Own!, when Ash was talking to Everett about the Gym Leaders that he had defeated in Kalos, in order for him to be able to compete in the Lumiose Conference.

In A Towering Takeover!, Olympia was seen in her Gym, watching Lysandre's broadcast from Lumiose City along with her Pokémon. In Rocking Kalos Defenses! and Forming a More Perfect Union!, Olympia and her two Meowstic were among those who helped destroy the Giant Rock.

She reappeared in a flashback in Till We Compete Again!.

Character

Olympia is pure-hearted and deeply empathetic. She holds a great deal of responsibility, foretelling her psychic predictions in a precise manner as to avoid any confusion. She often receives vivid visions of the past and future, causing her to flux in and out of a psychic state. The Anistar Gym also serves as a school for other Psychics, training them to reach their full potential.

In battle, Olympia is equally precise. Her two Meowstic have been trained to support each other in battle and cover for any weaknesses. Olympia uses their full range of attacks and special abilities.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Olympia in Pokémon Adventures

Olympia debuted in PS577. She, alongside Grant and Valerie, went to visit Korrina, who was in a Laverre City hospital recuperating from injuries she sustained in a battle with Team Flare. They soon left to have a meeting with the other Kalos Gym Leaders to decide on how to deal with Team Flare. In PS579, Y, Trevor, Tierno, and Shauna joined the Gym Leaders and traveled to Geosenge Town to confront Team Flare. Shortly after they arrived, the group witnessed the ultimate weapon emerging from underground like a flower bud. To prevent the weapon from blooming, the Gym Leaders and Y used their bodies to keep the petals in place by force, but were met with interference by Bryony.

The ultimate weapon eventually fired anyway, but the combined efforts of the Gym Leaders and their allies successfully weakened the weapon enough to make it unable to take any innocent lives. Using her newly-obtained Xerneas, Xerxer, Y tried to destroy the ultimate weapon, but was interrupted by Malva and her Yveltal. Due to Xerneas and Yveltal being evenly matched, Xerosic announced that Lysandre ordered a ceasefire. Xerxer confirmed this and retreated, taking Y and the others with it.

In Pinsir Glares, Ramos revealed that Team Flare blamed the destruction caused by the ultimate weapon on the Gym Leaders and the Vaniville children. X and his friends were advised to keep out of the public's eye while the Gym Leaders helped rebuild the damaged areas. In Xerneas Gives, Olympia, Grant, Ramos, Valerie, and Wulfric helped stop Team Flare's attempt to reactivate the ultimate weapon by defeating a group of Grunts that were stationed around Cyllage City. After Team Flare was fully defeated, Olympia and her allies met with X and his friends at Lumiose City to congratulate them on their victory.
