Professor Sycamore is mentioned as the one who selected a group made up of the [[player character]], the opposite-gendered character, [[Shauna]], [[Tierno]], and [[Trevor]] to help him with his research, sending the {{key|VI|[[Prof's Letter}}]] to the [[{{kal|Grace (Kalos)|player's mother]]}} to ask her permission. Professor Sycamore personally gives Trevor and Tierno their [[Pokédex]] and first Pokémon, asking them to deliver both a Pokédex and a starter Pokémon for the remaining three members of the group. He sends the three [[Kalos]] [[starter Pokémon]] through Tierno.
The player first meets him in [[Lumiose City]], where he will battle the player and, afterwards, gives them one of the three Kanto starter Pokémon. On the way to [[Shalour City]], he will instruct the player to meet [[Gurkinn]], the Mega Evolution guru, to learn and get a better understanding about [[Mega Evolution]]. Later, he appears at the [[Coumarine City]] monorail station and talks to [[Diantha]] about Mega Evolution and how it may be possibly related to the bonds between Pokémon and their Trainers. There, he will congratulate the player for using Mega Evolution for the first time and gives them {{HM|02|Fly}}.
At [[Couriway Town]], he will apologize to the player for not preventing what Lysandre had done. He then challenges the player to another battle to test how far they have come in their journey. After being defeated, he informs the player that he has a special surprise for helping stop [[Team Flare]] and leaves. Once the player has beaten the Pokémon League, he leads a parade for the player in Lumiose City, where he awards them and their friends with the [[Honor of Kalos]] for their heroics.
Later, he tells the player to meet him in Lumiose Station, where he gives them a ticket[[TMV Pass]] to board a train to [[Kiloude City]]. After {{ga|Calem}}/{{ga|Serena}} is defeated in Kiloude, Professor Sycamore will upgrade the player's [[Key Stone|Mega Ring]] in [[Anistar City]] so that they can detect hidden [[Mega Stone]]s from 8 PM to 9 PM.
When the Pokédex is evaluated at his lab in [[Lumiose City]], Sycamore will give the player an {{key|VI|[[Oval Charm}}]] for completing all three Kalos [[Pokédex]]es (Central Kalos, Coastal Kalos, and Mountain Kalos) and a {{key|VI|[[Shiny Charm}}]] for completing the [[National Pokédex]].
Professor Sycamore is also mentioned in [[Pokémon Sun and Moon|Pokémon Sun, Moon]], [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon]], where Dexio and Sina reveal that he was the one who discovered the [[Zygarde Cube]].
'''Lumiose Station''' (post-game)
:''"How did you like your parade, <player>? So the reason I asked you to come here is... I wanted to give you a pass to Kiloude City!"''
:''"Doesn't ring any bells? Kiloude City is a city in the southern part of the Kalos region. And it's the perfect place for Trainers looking to sharpen their skills! So here's your [[TMV Pass|pass]] for the super high-speed rail to Kiloude City!"''
:''"Use it to ride the TMV super high-speed rail! Take your pass to that scanner over there. It's an orange machine. Have the machine scan your pass to board the train. Have a fantastic time!"''
:''"You're encountering Pokémon at a really good clip, aren't you?"''
:''"I want to give you this to help you reach your goal!"''
:''"So, if you're holding an {{key|VI|[[Oval Charm}}]], {{pkmn|Egg}}s are discovered at the [[Pokémon Day Care]] more easily than normal."''
* After evaluating the National Pokédex in person after it has been finished:
:''"You're encountering Pokémon at a really good clip, aren't you?"''
:''"I want to give you this to help you reach your goal!"''
:''"Holding a {{key|VI|[[Shiny Charm}}]] will improve your chances of finding a [[Shiny Pokémon]]!"''
* If the National Pokédex has already been completed and evaluated:
:''"Congratulations! You completed the Pokédex!"''
