Black & White chapter

Whitley's mother debuts in this chapter. Along with her daughter, she is a former Team Plasma Grunt. She is first seen in A Difficult Parting, evacuating from a Team Plasma house after Team Plasma's defeat alongside other Team Plasma Grunts. When Whitley asked if she could take one of the Pokémon liberated by N along with her, her mother refused before Anthea and Concordia allowed it.

Black 2 & White 2 chapter

Two years later, in The Transfer Student, Whitley's mother enrolls her daughter in the Aspertia City Trainers' School. The decision to transfer Whitley from her previous school was to cut all connections to her past as a member of Team Plasma.

In Colress Machine, Whitley calls her mother to learn about a group of black-suited Team Plasma Grunts that stole Pokémon from their Trainers and proceeded to throw them away when defeated in battle. Whitley's mother reveals that the black-suited Grunts are part of a group of Team Plasma members who chose to reject N's ideals and instead use liberated Pokémon for their own desires. She reveals that the pendant Whitley received from Anthea and Concordia actually contains a microchip containing data on a machine capable of counteracting a Pokémon-controlling device created by Colress, the new leader of Team Plasma. Whitley's mother tells her daughter to take the pendant to Rood or Gorm.

In Frozen World, it was revealed that Whitley's mother used to work at a Pokémon Day Care. She chose to join Team Plasma after taking care of many Pokémon that had been hurt by humans.
