How Cynthia joined the Tourney

Cynthia is a powerful Pokémon trainer and the Champion of the Sinnoh region. Her grandmother Professor Carolina runs the Pokémon Research Lab in Celestic Town. She enjoys visiting the Solaceon Town Ruins. Later, in Pokémon: DP Galactic Battles, she helps fight Team Galactic as well. She has a villa in east Unova in the anime but in the Pokémon Black and White games she borrows Caitlin's villa (from the Elite Four).

In Diamond and Pearl, Cynthia appears now and again and helps out the player with various obstacles. She is also seen investigating various sites having to do with Legendary Pokémon out of curiosity. Her final appearance in the game is as the Champion.

Cynthia can be seen in HeartGold/SoulSilver standing inside of a log cabin in the Sinnoh Ruins. This event can be unlocked by placing an Arceus in the front of your party and walking into the Ruins of Alph research center. This event allows you to get a level 1 Dialga, Palkia, or Giratina, but only if Arceus is the only Pokémon in your party. Note: You can only access this event once per game card.

In Black and White you can battle her in Undella Town, but only in Summer. After losing, she will confess that she was reminded of the trainer who captured Giratina. You can also re-battle her in the Summer.

After beating a rookie Pokemon trainer, Cynthia enjoys time with her Pokemon at a nude beach. Suddenly, the beach is attacked by a four-armed creature calling himself Kintaro. She learns from her Pokedex that Kintaro is targeting her Pokemon for theft.
