Penelope is a teacher of a kindergarten. She usually befriended a harmless Pokémon from a forest and showed it to the children. After defeating Ash in battle, she had the heroes come to her to show the Pokémon to the children, entertaining them a bit. However, Team Rocket came and captured Pikachu and Sylveon, so Penelope took Serena, Clemont and Bonnie into the car to track them down. In the end, they came and saw Ash and Randall defeated Team Rocket, as well as having rescued Sylveon and Pikachu.
