Before the series

Alexis was born as a twin with N in Aspertia City in Unova to mother Johanna and father Ghetsis. When she was born, N was taken by her father, who had decided to leave Johanna. Because of this, Johanna decided to move back to her hometown of Twinleaf Town in Sinnoh. Alexis grew up with half-sister, Hayley for 3 years and mother Johanna, before Johanna reunited with Hayley's father. When Alexis was 15, Ghetsis returned to come get Alexis; feeling left out of the family, she agreed to go with her father. In the next 2 years, Alexis became a senior member of Team Plasma, where she was "next in line" for leader, alongside brother N. Alexis and N finally became leaders of Team Plasma when they found the famed Black & White stones in a desolate cave, becoming Team Plasma's greatest gain. Following her and N's crowning as Team Plasma leaders, father Ghetsis confided in Alexis than N was planning to steal the other stone from Alexis and become the sole leader of Team Plasma, wanting to be the most powerful. Ghetsis told her that she should give the stone to him, in order for him to protect her. Alexis doesn’t allow this, and hurt by her father’s story, she decides to run away. Alexis manages to escape Team Plasma's base, destroying it in the process. However, her Pokémon at the time, Tepig, was captured by Team Plasma, in which Alexis told it that she would return for it when she could after it urged her to run away without it. N was told the same story by Ghetsis, being told that Alexis was trying to steal his stone and destroy him to have all the power to herself. N gives his stone to Ghetsis and leaves the base with his father. In the effect of the blast, Alexis receives memory loss, forgetting everything about her years as a Plasma member and her knowing of N and Ghetsis.

Finding her daughter alive a few months later, Johanna decides to not tell Alexis about her father, N or anything involving Team Plasma anymore. While asleep, a bunch of uniformed men come steal Alexis's body from her home. Knowing all about the story of Team Plasma and Alexis, Team Galactic Leader Cyrus begins to fill Alexis's head with fake stories telling her she has loyalty to Team Galactic, and that they are the company she has been with all this time. Alexis, not knowing otherwise, believes this and becomes a senior member of Team Galactic. For the next few years, Alexis causes havoc in the Sinnoh region. Alexis then saw her demise as a Team Galactic member when Alexis was defeated by Ash, and two friends, Dawn and Brock. It's here where Alexis is revealed to be the sister of Dawn, being the daughter of Johanna. But because of Alexis's memory loss, she never knew of her sister. When this is revealed to her, Alexis discovers that Cyrus had lied to her, and manages to defeat him with the help of Ash, where he was sent to the Distortion World. Alexis then cut ties with Team Galactic, deciding to start her own Pokémon Trainer Journey alone.

The Adventure Begins

The Adventure Begins began with Alexis arriving in Unova's Castelia City following her journey in the Sevii Islands in order to return Zorua back to it's natural habitat. Following Zorua's return, Alexis decided to travel the Unova region.

Best Wishes, Best Wishes: Emerging Powers & Best Wishes: Noble Victories

Best Wishes saw Alexis depart on her Unova journey, battling the 8 Gym Leaders in order to secure her place to battle the Unova League. Along the way, Alexis captured a plethora of different Pokémon, including Oshawott and Axew, whom remained out of their Pokéballs throughout the journey. However, Alexis ends up running into Team Plasma and evil organisation who seem to have a grudge on Alexis. By the time she reached the Unova League, a heated battle between Alexis and her friends and Team Plasma resulted in the revelation that Ghetsis, the real leader of Team Plasma and N, the prince of Team Plasma were her father and brother respectively. However, in the climax, N flew away with the Kami duo meanwhile Ghetsis was arrested.

Best Wishes II & Best Wishes II: Plasma Freeze

Best Wishes 2 continued Alexis's journey two years following the initial incident with Team Plasma, returning to Unova after traveling. Due to the incident with Team Plasma, she never actually battled Alder the Champion and was forfeited from the League. Because of the length of time after the League, her Gym wins she won two years prior was void and therefore, Alexis decided that she would take on the Gym Leaders of Unova once again while rediscovering Unova two years on, including capturing more Pokémon, along with becoming acquainted by new friends. But she was met with many obstacles, including the return of Team Plasma under the leadership of Colress.
