attempted to cheer up Valerie
when she was concerned about finding some models for her Florges and Lisyan patterns that were part of the Furisode Collection.
During the Gym battle against Ash Ketchum
, it faced off against Ash's Fletchinder
in the first match up. Valerie
talked to her Sylveon in Pokémon language and it was able to more or less understand what she wanted to do. Valerie's Sylveon
being a Fairy type is delicate but strong. It used its tail ribbons to its advantage during the battle to capture Ash's Fletchinder
from moving about but he countered that but charging right into Sylveon with Flame Charge
. The battle came to a climax when the two charged at each other with Giga Impact
and Steel Wing
but Ash's Fletchinder
came out victorious and knocked out Valerie's Sylveon
to win the first match-up.
