Selene is a new Pokémon Trainer and the female protagonist in Pokémon Sun and Moon. She is one of the two main protagonists alongside Elio. She also appears in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, the remakes of the previously mentioned games. At the end of the games, she become the first ever Champion of the Alola region alongside Elio.


Selene has black hair with side-swept bangs aligned to the left. She has pale skin and slate-grey eyes. Like in the X & Y games, her appearance is customizable.

Sun & Moon

Selene wears a red flower-like toque on top of her head. Her clothes consist of a loose light cream colored t-shirt with light pink and gold flower patterns spread across it that is tied at the bottom and small teal shorts. Noticeably, the white color of a bra or tank top is visible under her left arm. On her feet, she wears red and black shoes with large yellow laces. She sports a grey Z-Ring on her right arm.

Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon

Selene has a sleeveless orange shirt with a white trim, as well as straps and red flowers along with an opening resembling flower petals. She wears puffy white shorts, and black and white sandals. Her hair is longer and braided. On her head, she wears a yellow pork-pie hat with a salmon pink flower in it.


Just like every other playable protagonist in the core games, Moon is silent and has no pre-existing personality. Except for some premade dialogue choices, she is completely mute. Unlike the previous few games (Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, X and Y, etc.), she does not appear if the player does not choose to play as her. Therefore, it is nearly impossible to figure out her personality.


If Selene is selected to be played, she is born in Kanto and travels to Alola with her mother. She talks to Professor Kukui over video chat at the beginning of the game. Not much else is known about her, other than the fact that she is very young. She is at least 11 though, as she is able to partake in the Island challenges.


Over the course of the game, Selene makes some new friends. She befriends Hau and Lillie, and meets her Cosmog, Nebby. She travels around the region, simultaneously enjoying her vacation and beating back Team Skull at the same time.

Unlike previous games, she does not appear if she is not selected by the player.



Main article: Moon (Adventures)

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, She is named Moon and is a Pokédex Holder. She came from the Sinnoh region to find a cure for a poisoned Piplup. After she acquired a Rotom, she also decided to assist Professor Kukui. However, soon after coming to Alola, she got in an argument with Sun, who decided to join her after ruining her clothes.


  • In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Wicke comments: "You and Hau are both trial-goers, aren't you? Are you hoping to become champions? I suppose... You must be around 11, then?" Hau's age is definitely 11 years old as that is also the age for beginning the island challenge, implying the player character to be either around Hau's age exactly or possibly even a bit older. Other player characters have appeared at initial ages of anywhere from 10 (various) - around 17 (Calem/Serena), with 11 (various) and 14 (Hilbert/Hilda) being "median" ages.
  • Selene is the only core series female protagonist to not wear visible socks/stockings in any official pictures.
