Serena is a new trainer who is just starting her journey. Her goal is to be a Rhyhorn racer, to follow in her mother's footsteps, but she has since taken to making PokéPuffs. She's a compassionate person, often taking care of her mother's Rhyhorn. Back in the past, she had some history with Ash when he helped her after she had been inadvertently attacked by a Poliwag, and she is interested in fashion. Due to this, she became interested in the various PokéVision videos and is pursuing a journey in performing. After her performances in the Kalos region showcases, she heads to the Hoenn region to enter Pokémon Contests.
Pokemon has always featured Satoshi (Ash) challenging Gyms to win badges and enter the Pokemon League. But Gym battles are not the only path open to a Pokemon trainer. Aspiring, young trainers can also work hard to win Showcases, Contests, and a number of other events with their Pokemon partners.
