Nina and her husband

She met Ash and Professor Kukui in her restaurant, where she explained Ash the race's rules. Later, she and her Alolan Raichu were seen training for the race together with Ash and Pikachu.

The next day, Nina and Raichu entered the Pokémon Pancake Race. During the final section of the race, Raichu ran in first place, but due to a distraction caused by Team Rocket and Bewear, Samson Oak's Komala was able to take the lead and win the competition, causing Nina to end up tied with Ash for second place. Although she lost, Nina was content as she had a fun time and told Raichu they would try again next year.
