Sonia was childhood friends with Leon. They used to be very close and she taught him knowledge about Pokémon. However, she and Leon began to drift apart after the latter became an excellent Trainer and later Champion. Wanting to stay with her grandmother, she decided to train with the aim to become a Professor.

Sonia explained to the two Trainers about the golden statue behind them, which was modeled after the hero who stopped the Darkest Day. As Ash introduced himself and his Pikachu, Sonia became infatuated with him, gushing over Pikachu caressing his ears, despite Pikachu's annoyance, and subsequently caressed Raboot's ears, is just as enamored with the Rabbit Pokémon. She then properly introduced herself as Professor Magnolia's assistant and granddaughter and explained that it was her "homework" to study the Darkest Day.[1]
