Serena (Japanese: セレナ Serena) is the female player character in Pokémon X and Y, and also serves as the rival in the same games if the player chooses to play as the male character. Her male counterpart is Calem.

If playing as Serena, the player character may earn the title of Grand Duchess by defeating most of the Trainers in the Battle Chateau.

Terminology

She is named Serena (Japanese: セレナ Serena) when she appears as a non-player character in the Generation VI games. The same name would be reused for merchandise and in the Pokémon Masters EX mobile game. Pre-release media for Pokémon X and Y referred to Serena as Yvonne (Japanese: ワイ Y).

In the core series games

Appearance

As player character

Serena is a young girl whose appearance changes based on trainer customization. The player can choose between 3 different preset default appearances, chooseing between Serena's hair, eye and skin color. These defaults otherwise are identical. In most media and her stock art, Serena uses the default middle option, having gray eyes and long honey-blonde hair.

Serenas's hair is styled with long Honey blonde hair. Her head is covered by a red Felt Hat that has a black ribbon tied around the base. This hat is thick and has a wide brim going all the way around her scalp, folding upwards. The hat has a pair of white Wide-Frame Sunglasses with black visors. These glasses are circular in shape and end in a point towards the outsides connecting to the arms of the glasses. Serena has tall rounded eyes, having gray irises and three eye lashes on each eye. Her thin eyebrows show no color.

Her dress is a black sleeveless High-Waisted Outfit, having a deeper black collar. The dress has a red pleated skirt with 7 sections on the front and back ends, the sides being longer than the rest. The sides also have pockets. Her long black OTK Socks go up to her mid thigh, and lack any decoration on them. The black High Top shoes have darker black laces and gray soles. The sides of each foot are decorated with pink Poké Ball-like markings. Serena's bag of choice is a pink Tote Bag that opens on the top with two pink straps on the ends used to slring around one should like a purse. The bag is covered in several patched squares with a half ciricle being included in the middle.

Serena wears her black Mega Ring along her left hand. This Mega Ring is decorated with a gray symbol around the Key Stone similar to that of the Mega Evolution symbol.

As a non-playable character

Serena's appearance as an NPC is nearly identical to that of her center default player character appearance. She lacks the hat and glassses that her player counterpart would otherwise have, instead she sports a long curly Ponytail in the same Honey blonde color.

Pokémon X and Y

Seren appears both as a playable and non-playable character in Pokémon X and Y. When playing as Calem, Serena will appears as one of the player's friends and rivals.

As the protagonist

 
Calem and Serena in the opening of Pokémon X and Y

Serena is a girl living in Vaniville Town with her friends Calem, Tierno, Trevor, and Shauna. She recently moved into Vaniville Town. Her mom owns a Rhyhorn and Fletchling, the latter of which wakes Serena up at the start of the game.

As a non-playable character

Serena is a young girl who lives in Vaniville Town when the protagonist moves into town. Serena is the player's neighbor and their main rival, choosing the first partner Pokémon which is super effective against the player's. She is also the character who teaches the player and Shauna how to catch a Pokémon, catching a Bunnelby with the use of her Fletchling. Soon after, she can be seen in Santalune Forest with the other friends.

Serena is the child of two prominent Pokémon battlers, and is seen as one of the two best battlers of the group of friends, alongside the protagonist.

At Route 7, Serena battles with the player against Tierno and Trevor. She then helps the player defeat Team Flare at Glittering Cave to save the fossil assistant, and is given the fossil not chosen afterward. At the Tower of Mastery in Shalour City, Serena battles the player for the chance to get the Mega Ring.

The next time Serena battles the player is in front of the Coumarine Gym.

When the group of friends meets up and decides to go to the haunted area in Route 14, Serena is the only one of the friends to not go to the house, claiming that she has to train. She then helps the player defeat Team Flare at the Poké Ball Factory.

The next time Serena battles the player is in front of the Anistar Gym. After the player defeats the gym, she will ask for a rematch, but cancels her challenge after Lysandre announces his plan of eradicating all life forms not a part of Team Flare. She then helps the player defeat Team Flare get to the legendary Pokémon and defeat Team Flare for good.

As the player traverses Victory Road, Serena appears by a derelict altar and demands one last battle before their final challenge.

After the player enters the Hall of Fame and battles at the Battle Maison, Serena can be battled in Kiloude City, at which point she has obtained a Mega Ring of her own. When defeated for the first time here, she will give the player an Absolite and tell the player to meet Professor Sycamore in Anistar City. She can be battled at Kiloude City once per day.
