The name Olympia comes from "Olympian" which means superior or god-like in status. It may also come from Olympus Mons, a mountain on Mars that's the tallest mountain in the solar system, hence the space theme of her Gym.
Her Japanese name, Gojika, is literally 午時花 (gojika, Japanese name for the scarlet mallow flower) while also incorporating 時 (ji, Japanese for "time").
Pokémon the Series: XY
Olympia, while observing her students and apprentices developing their friendship with their Pokémon in her Gym, she had a vision of Ash and Professor Sycamore, who would come to the sundial and have a major part in "the green vortex surrounding Kalos". Carrie thought they were a threat and attacked the heroes, as well as Professor Sycamore and his assistants. Olympia floated to Carrie and scolded her, along with her other apprentice, Charlene. The heroes were explained Olympia has had visions of the future and the recent one included Ash and Professor Sycamore. Olympia had another vision, that time being of Frogadier, sensing he can become something different, yet powerful. Olympia sensed Frogadier's past, explaining Frogadier was hatched from an egg as a Froakie, who wanted to train and battle more. Froakie had many trainers, but none of them showed what Froakie wanted most - the trainer's love towards him, except Ash. Olympia also explained Frogadier can have more power through his bonds with Ash. She had another vision of the sundial being attacked and had her male Meowstic use Helping Hand on female Meowstic, who used Future Sight, which hit Team Rocket's balloon in time. Ash saw Olympia was a powerful Gym Leader, who claimed the battle will be a "ritual" to test the new bonds between trainer and Pokémon.
The following day, the heroes came to the Gym, where Ash faced Olympia. Olympia sent her two Meowstic in a Double Battle against Ash's Frogadier and Talonflame, making Pikachu sad he was not in this battle. Olympia had her male Meowstic use Helping Hand on female Meowstic, who used Future Sight, which would hit Frogadier and Talonflame. Both made combination attack against Frogadier and Talonflame, who attempted to combine their own moves, like Water Pulse and Flame Charge, but were repelled by male Meowstic's Light Screen and female Meowstic's Dark Pulse, then got hit by Future Sight. Pikachu started counting for the next Future Sight, while Ash had Frogadier protect Talonflame and make a counterattack against the Meowstic. Talonflame and Frogadier managed to fool Olympia's Meowstic, redirecting their Psyshock towards Meowstic. The Meowstic were hit and thrown into the air, where they also got hit by Future Sight. The Meowstic retaliated back onto Frogadier, who was saved by Talonflame. While Talonflame defeated the female Meowstic with Flame Charge, the male Meowstic used Dark Pulse on Frogadier, who used Water Pulse to protect itself. Olympia noticed Frogadier being a differently-colored Greninja, who rose up and defeated the male Meowstic with Water Pulse. Olympia was impressed and gave Ash the Psychic Badge, reminding him Frogadier needed his love to achieve greatness. Later, Olympia explained to Professor Sycamore she had a vision of a "green Z", sensing the heroes, as well as those that tried to steal the sundial would have a major part in the crisis.
Pokémon the Series: XYZ
Olympia appeared in a flashback of the heroes when they were talking about the transformation of Ash's Greninja. They recalled Olympia's words that Greninja needed more love and that it will receive a mysterious power. Olympia warned Diantha of an incoming crisis in Kalos, sensing the "green flames" would pull people and Pokémon inside those flames. Diantha then asked what the "deep green eyes" was she referred to and Olympia showed an image of Zygarde to her. Clemont later recalled Olympia's words which said that the heroes were also involved in the crisis.
Olympia was at Anistar City, watching as the sundial turned red. She felt the sundial was feeling frightened. Since the Giant Rock was approaching, Olympia gave word to Officer Jenny to evacuate the citizens, while Olympia gathered the Gym Leaders, stating the Giant Rock must not reach the sundial. She was also glad to see Ash's Greninja managed to obtain the power she spoke of. During the battle, Olympia had her Meowstic battle the plants to let Ash and Alain continue, but was soon bound by the roots. After the Giant Rock was stopped, Olympia had her Meowstic launch an attack, which fused with others' attacks to destroy the Giant Rock. Since they failed, Olympia watched as Squishy and Z-2 changed form and battled against the Giant Rock and Lysandre. She commented Zygarde's giant form was formed when "everything was completed". In the end, she was grateful the sundial has been protected, while Diantha expressed her gratitude, as they couldn't save the world without her help.
Ash remembered his gym battle against Olympia and her two Meowstic and them fighting the Giant Rock with the rest when he was reflecting back on his journey.
