Lillie is a polite, innocent, and kindhearted girl from a wealthy upbringing, who always cares for and shows concern for others. Due to the trauma she sustained when she was attacked by a {{p|Nihilego}} and rescued by [[Gladion's Silvally]] as a child, she is terrified of physically interacting with Pokémon, and tends to freeze up whenever one Pokémon enters her personal space; in ''[[SM005|Yo, Ho, Ho! Go, Popplio!]]'', she goes so far as to wear a full suit of diving gear to avoid making contact with Pokémon during a fishing class. When other characters point out her fear, she denies it by saying she simply avoids Pokémon by choice until she concedes to her inability in ''[[SM008|Lillie's Egg-xhilirating Adventure]]''. Despite this, Lillie enjoys studying Pokémon from a researcher's perspective, and is comfortable with being around them at a safe distance. In ''[[SM014|Getting to Know You!]]'', she became comfortable with touching her own [[Snowy|Pokémon]], and she has been shown touching other Pokémon since then, such as {{AP|Pikachu}} in ''[[SM030|The Ol' Raise and Switch!]]'' and a Stoutland in ''[[SM032|Treasure Hunt, Akala Style!]]''. However, in ''[[SM048|Night of a Thousand Poses!]]'', she regresses to the point where she can't even touch Snowy after her memory of Silvally resurfaces, in which Silvally seemingly attacked her. After remembering that Silvally had protected her from Nihilego years earlier, Lillie completely overcame her fear, becoming eager to make contact with as many Pokémon as possible.

Lillie is extremely knowledgeable about the behavior, types, and background of Alola's resident Pokémon species and [[regional variant]]s, including [[guardian deities]] such as {{p|Tapu Koko}}. However, she appears to know little about Pokémon in other [[region]]s, as seen when she expresses surprise that {{p|Exeggutor}}—a {{2t|Grass|Dragon}}-type Pokémon in Alola—is a Grass/{{t|Psychic}}-type Pokémon elsewhere. She also has a tendency to bring up information that she has gathered from books. In ''[[SM045|Now You See Them, Now You Don't!]]'', Lillie is shownrevealed to enjoy writing in her journal before she goes to sleep.

Lillie is shown to havehas a strained relationship with her mother, [[Lusamine]]. As shown in ''[[SM044|A Dream Encounter!]]'' and ''[[SM046|Deceiving Appearances!]]'', she is seen frequently getting exasperated whenever Lusamine treats her like a child, acting completely unlike her more reserved and quiet self. Another example of this was Lusamine's decision to evolve her {{p|Clefairy}}, whom Lillie was close to, into {{p|Clefable}} without ever considering Lillie's feelings on the matter, thus upsetting Lillie greatly. She is also constantly annoyed whenever Lusamine becomes distracted by her work and prioritizes it over spending time with her. However, ''[[SM048|Night of a Thousand Poses!]]'' reveals how the two were much closer during Lillie's youth before Lusamine became more absorbed in her Ultra Beast research. During the events of ''[[SM054|10,000,000 Reasons to Fight!]]'', after Lusamine had fallen under {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Nihilego}}'s control, Lillie finally told her how much she hated her for her babying attitude, especially since Lusamine had been acting even more like a child under the Ultra Beast's influence. Lillie also refused to accept the possessed Lusamine as her mother unless she could fight its control, admitting that Lusamine was an incredibly strong person for keeping up her research for many years. After her words reached through to Lusamine, Lillie's relationship with her improved considerably, admiring her mother's compassion for starting the [[Ultra Guardians]] to rescue lost Ultra Beasts.
Lillie appears to be lacking in athletic skills, as she failed to throw Poké Balls, such as in ''[[SM014|Getting to Know You!]]'' and ''[[SM078|Twirling with a Bang!]]'', or even plastic balls onto a target, as shown in the extra scene of the latter episode. She also could not jump over the vaulting box in ''[[SM085|The Long Vault Home!]]''.
Lillie is shown to enjoyenjoys taking photos of Pokémon and sightseeing in general. This was seen in ''[[SM105|Showdown on Poni Island!]]'', where she and Snowy spent much of their time doing so at [[Poni Island]] as part of their research project. In the [[SM106|following episode]], she was shownrevealed to be a competent artist, as she drew a fairly accurate sketch of a {{p|Gumshoos}} that she had seen the previous day.
