"Forget it. Quit wasting your time with this person."
  • Before battle
"Let's take him/her on two versus one. We must improve our chances of winning."
"There's another one?"
  • Being defeated
"Probability is just probability, after all... Absolutes do not exist."

  • Before battle
"I've seen this kid somewhere before."
"I have no idea. But obviously he's/she's not in Team Flare. Let's get him/her, yeah?"
"Oh! What a brute! Look at poor Celosia!"
  • Being defeated
"Your ability flies in the face of all probability! Just what is the source of your power?"
  • After being defeated
"We've been using the electricity we stole from the Power Plant to get everything prepared for activating the ultimate weapon. But it's not like that's all we'll need to use it. Are you following me? We'll need energy absorbed from Pokémon to power the device! Yes! It's the stones on Route 10 that will steal that energy for us and power the ultimate weapon!"
  • If talked to again
"That's right. The stones on Route 10 normally put out energy, but when the ultimate weapon is activated, that reverses and they begin to absorb energy from Pokémon!"

Bryony in the anime

In the past, Bryony, alongside Lysandre and the other Team Flare Scientists, would help those in need, until Lysandre became disillusioned with the human race and sought to restart the world.

Bryony debuted in From A to Z!, where Xerosic sent her to retrieve the Zygarde Core that had escaped from Lysandre Labs. She was later seen cornering the Core, but the Core managed to summon its nearby Cells, allowing it to transform into its 10% Forme and counterattack, forcing Bryony and her assistant Grunts to retreat. She was later seen informing Celosia of what had happened.

In Meeting at Terminus Cave!, Bryony teamed up with Celosia to retrieve Squishy in Terminus Cave. After a prolonged struggle, during which Team Rocket interfered as well, Team Flare was forced to retreat, as they were unable to defeat Ash's Greninja and Squishy had fled. In the next episode, she, along with Celosia and several Grunts, monitored sensors to find Squishy. Bryony and Celosia also ordered two Grunts to watch Ash and his friends. Later, the sensors caught energy waves coming from Squishy and Z2 and managed to determine Squishy's location. They, however, were unable to make it in time and lost sight of Squishy, as it had stopped emitting energy waves. Bryony and Celosia then ordered the pursuit squad to withdraw, as they thought Squishy probably wouldn't return to Ash and his friends, and decided to narrow their search.

In A Towering Takeover!, during Team Flare's attack on Lumiose City, Bryony was guarding the Prism Tower with Aliana. In the following episode, she and Bryony battled against some of Clemont's Pokémon and Blaziken Mask's Blaziken, but both ended up getting defeated and were captured by Clembot, allowing Clemont and Clembot to enter the Prism Tower.

Bryony in Pokémon Adventures

Bryony makes her first appearance in the X & Y chapter alongside her fellow Team Flare members. She, Celosia, and Xerosic witness the legendary Pokémon Xerneas and Yveltal rampage through Vaniville Town during a battle with each other. They note that they need the Pokémon to power their ultimate weapon, but currently have no means as to capture them.

Bryony is the last of the five Team Flare scientists to become active in the plot. She first takes action when X attempts to sneak in to Team Flare's Secret HQ. She notices that after prolonged usage of her Aegislash, Celosia begun to lose control of herself. As an act of mercy, Bryony has her Bisharp knock Celosia unconscious and then sends Aliana and Mable away. When the ultimate weapon is activated, Bryony heads outside to find the Kalos Gym Leaders and X's friends attempt to keep it closed. Bryony attacks the heroes and uses her intelligence to easily see through their various techniques. When Tierno, Trevor, and Shauna are told the location of ultimate weapon's control room, Bryony chases after the three and attempts to kill them. They are saved at the last second by Clemont, allowing them to continue to the ultimate weapon's control room.

The heroes make their way to the control room and work together to prevent the ultimate weapon from firing. Although the weapon still fires, the combined efforts of the heroes weakened the ultimate weapon enough to prevent its beam from taking any innocent lives. When a revived Xerneas breaks from the control room to the surface with X's friends on its back, Bryony leads a group of Team Flare Grunts to try and recapture it. Y gets to Xerneas first and adds it to her team. She then has Xerneas defeat Bryony and the Grunts with a Geomancy-Horn Leech combination.

Later, Bryony assists Xerosic in examining the stone boulders placed around Route 10. She states that a "scientist with a strange hairstyle" claimed that the stones exerted a strange power, which helped Xerosic realize that they must be an ancient form of the Absorber used by AZ when he first used the ultimate weapon.

When Xerosic battles X and his friends on the way to Pokémon Village, Bryony, Mable, Aliana, and Celosia all watch via a tablet device. When it looks like Xerosic is about to be defeated, they decide to go down to assist him. Upon arriving in the area, the scientists find X's friends having gone on ahead to the Pokémon Village and decide to pick them off individually. Bryony picks Trevor as her opponent and easily overpowers him in strength. Trevor is rescued by X, who uses his Mega-Evolved Salamè to defeat Bryony's Bisharp. After retrieving Bisharp, Bryony teams up with Aliana to fight against Y and Trevor. After Trevor gets a confidence boost from Y's encouraging words, he decides to stay behind and fight while Y goes to the village to help the others.

Despite the confidence boost, Trevor is still unable to defeat Bryony and is forced to hide from her attacks. He is assisted by Y's Croaky, who Y left behind to help in the battle. Together, Croaky and Trevor's Floette hit Bryony and Bisharp with a Water Shuriken-Fairy Wind combination attack, knocking them both out.
