Serena is a character that was introduced in Generation VI. She is the playable female protagonist in Pokémon X and Y, and her counterpart is Calem. However, if Calem is chosen as the playable protagonist, Serena will appear as an NPC.

Appearance

Unlike most of the other female protagonists in the Pokémon games, Serena is a girl who seems to be on the cusp of adulthood. She has fair skin, gray eyes, long legs and a slender frame, and waist-length honey-colored hair that she keeps tied in a low ponytail. Clothing-wise, Serena wears a very fashionable outfit that consists of a dark pink hat with a black band and white sunglasses on top, a black tank top, a red pencil skirt, black thigh-high stockings, and black sneakers that have a pink semi-circle shaped like a Poké Ball on them. She also keeps a Mega Ring on her left wrist and carries around a pink handbag with black decals on it.

However, if Calem is chosen as the playable protagonist, Serena ties her hair in a ponytail and does not wear a hat. She is the only female protagonist that changes her default appearance if her opposite-sex counterpart is chosen instead of her.

Personality

While Serena doesn't express any verbal dialogue as the player character, she does display varied emotions (a feature that the first four games of the next generation would almost completely lack). For example, she can be seen expressing shock, joy, and determination, though most of it can only be seen after battles.

As the rival, however, Serena has a much more visible personality, being mostly friendly and nice. However, while she's friendly and readily helps people in need, she's also competitive and prone to getting disappointed when being defeated in battles.

Serena's biography changes depending on if she is the player character or not. If she is the player character, Serena moves into Vaniville Town at the start of the games, where she quickly makes a load of new friends.

If she is the rival, Serena already lives in the town. She greets the player character along with Shauna and teaches them how to catch Pokémon properly.

Manga

Main article: Y (Adventures)

In the manga, Serena has a counterpart named Y. Y is a Sky Trainer who is friends with X, Shauna, Tierno, and Trevor. She tried to get X leave his house but she failed. X then decided to go on a journey with the others after Xerneas and Yveltal went on a rampage on their hometown, Vaniville Town.

Anime

  • Serena original appearance in the anime.
  • Serena second appearance in the anime.
Main article: Serena (anime)

Serena also has a counterpart in the anime that shares her name, though she is much younger than her game counterpart. A childhood friend of Ash Ketchum, Serena and her friends Clemont and Bonnie traveled with Ash throughout Kalos before she eventually departed for the Hoenn region. While she didn't know what she wanted to do at first, she eventually discovered that she wanted to be Kalos Queen, so she followed her dream by participating in Pokémon Showcases. She also thought of Ash as her "goal," as she developed a massive crush on him that only grew deeper over time.

Victory Road

Kiloude City

Here, the player character can battle Serena all the times they want, but only once per day.

Trivia

  • Serena has a very close resemblance to Leaf, the female protagonist from Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.
  • Rather than having more winter focused clothes (jackets and hoodies) like her male counterpart, Serena has a larger variety of purchasable clothes better fit for warm weather, such as sleeveless and midriff-baring tops.
  • In the post-game of Pokémon X and Y, Emma (who is 16) treats Serena as being older than her, meaning that she is at least 17 years old (non-canon to the anime).
