Caroline's picture with Norman.

Caroline met Norman on a flowery field, surrounded by Beautifly. Caroline made a photo of that moment.[1]

While spending a day on the beach, Caroline heard her daughter, May, was overwhelmed by her Tentacool. Thus, Caroline threw a Poké Ball, but, by accident, hit May, since Caroline mistook her to be a Tentacool.[2]

While the heroes were talking about the movies they saw, Max remembered seeing a movie about a giant Meowth with his parents and his sister.[3]

Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire

May met up with her parents at Petalburg City and found Max arguing with Ash. Inside the Gym, May introduced Ash to her parents. Per Norman's request, May showed Torchic she obtained from Professor Birch, making Caroline remark it looked cute. After everyone had lunch, Caroline, May and Max watched Norman battle against Ash. At the end of the battle, Team Rocket appeared, making Caroline mistake they were May's friends. Since Torchic got stolen, Caroline and Norman decided to help May out. They managed to find the balloon and once they ran towards it, they fell in a hole. Fortunately, Ash helped everyone get out of the holes. In the end, once everyone returned to the Gym, Ash, May and Max (who decided to accompany the former) bid farewell to Norman and Caroline.[4]

May promises to her mother to watch after Max.

That day, when May was packing for more stuff, Caroline visited her. She knew Max anticipated to join May and Ash to go on the journey. Caroline asked of May to be with Max and protect him; May swore the oath and hugged her mother.[5]

After Ash's victory in Lavaridge Gym, the heroes planned where to go next. Max proposed going to Petalburg City, who, along with May, imagined going back home to their parents. This excited Ash, knowing he'd battle Norman once before and was ready for a Gym match, claiming things would be different this time.[6] Once the Team Rocket trio arrived to Petalburg City, they found a poster of Norman and his wife, who were quite famous in Petalburg City. This gave Team Rocket an idea to impersonate Norman, Caroline and their children, May and Max, to steal the money from their fans.[7]

Caroline makes a funny pose while cooking, to calm down her anger.

May and Max came back to the Gym, where Caroline hugged them, stating both of them grew up. Caroline was glad they came and greeted Brock, who accompanied them. Max and May wished to see their father, but Caroline stated he was absent. Instead, they all went inside the house, where Caroline was making lunch. Once Max told her mother of their adventures, he and May wondered where their father was. Caroline got angry, so to cheer her up, May stated she got a Skitty and a Beautifly. The former made Caroline even more angry, but she subdued her anger and claimed she was just training. Kenny managed to get Max, May and Brock inside the greenhouse, stating Caroline and Norman were yelling at each other for the past few days and Caroline gets upset when she hears the word "Beautifly". Caroline managed to pack her stuff up and went to the Pokémon Center, where she confronted Norman. Caroline stated she was leaving, confusing Norman, who wanted to help her out. After being explained the problem, Norman took the group to the greenhouse. After defeating Team Rocket, Norman explained he was preparing secret fireworks for his anniversary with Caroline. Nurse Joy obtained some new fireworks, which were set up. Norman triggered the fireworks, amazing Caroline, who hugged her husband for the romantic moment.[1]

Caroline watched Ash's battle with her husband, Norman. She calmed Max down, claiming Norman will be fine. She also confirmed her husband wants to take control of the field to give Ash a challenge. Caroline also noted Norman likes to battle, when Norman and Ash were down to their last Pokémon. Caroline was startled when Max stole Ash's badge and managed to persuade him to come out and give the badge back.[8]

Before arriving to Slateport City for May's Grand Festival, she and Ash remembered their past adventures so far. Ash recalled facing Norman in a battle his wife, Caroline, was watching.[9]
