Voice Actors
Burgundy is Pokémon Sommelière and a Pokémon Trainer. She managed to pass the Pokémon Sommelièr Association's test to become a C-Class Pokémon Sommelière. Upon passing the test she decided to challenge Cilan at the Sanyo Gym for the Tri Badge. Cilan defeated her but when Burgundy returned to challenge Cilan at the gym, Chili and Cress had to explain that Cilan was on a journey and was no longer at the gym. Angry that Cilan was not the gym leader when she visited, she battled at the gym anyhow and won the Tri Badge.

Ash Ketchum met her at a new Friendly Shop while on his way to Hiun City. Burgundy did a compatibility test for all of Ash Ketchum's Pokémon but she gave him low compatibility for all his Pokémon. Ash Ketchum and his Pokémon were not impressed with her compatibility test skills. Cilan and Iris interrupted the compatibility test only for Burgundy to realize that she had finally found Cilan and she was now out for revenge.

Burgundy challenged Cilan to a revenge battle where she ended up loosing to him yet again. More angry than ever, she vowed to defeat Cilan the next time they met while becoming an S-class Sommelière and she took off.

Donamite Tournament

Burgundy entered the Donamite tournament and she faced Iris in the first round. When she was reunited with Cilan, she told him she was going to exact her revenge on him in this tournament. Cilan asked her if she had leveled up her Pokémon Sommelière skills but she got annoyed when she had to tell him she was still a C-Class Sommelière. In the first round battle, Burgundy's Dewott faced Iris' Excadrill. Burgundy had been training hard with it and it learned two new moves: Ice Beam and Revenge. Throughout the battle Cilan, wondered why Burgundy wasn't fighting back too much but when she finally got to the point when she had to use Revenge, he finally realized what she was gunning for. Burgundy's Dewott learned Revenge so that Burgundy could take revenge on Cilan. Burgundy was defeated by Iris though and Burgundy was eliminated from the tournament so she couldn't battle against Cilan during the tournament to exact her revenge.

Taverne - The Legendary S-class Pokémon Sommelier

In order to get into Mr. Hatterly's estate where Cilan and Ricard Nouveau were checking out the compatibility of Marigold's Pokémon, Burgundy created a disguise and caller herself Taverne the Legendary S-class Pokémon Sommelier in order to be included in the proceedings. Taverne was quickly found out to be a fake after 'his' evaluations were not up to S-class standards and Burgundy was forced out of the estate.
