Serena, what she will do? (anime)

During the New Year break, a special has aired with pieces of upcoming episodes. And it doesn't look well to Serena.
Serena is in theory finding a goal, but the games didn't have a sidequest like Contest or PokeWood. They can make anime-exclusive goals for her (ex:Contest even though it doesn't exist) but its unlikely.
But there are things that I don't like about her at the moment, and its like she is completely background fodder.
-First, her team. Her team is now only omposed of Fennekin unlike lemont who has Bunnelby, Chespin and Dedenne (even though one it's for Bonnie) and Ash who has Pikachu, Fletchling and Froakie. But this isn't all, look at the movesets:
-Froakie has Bubble and Water Pulse. Expected to get Double Team.
-Fletchling has Peck, Quick Attack, Razor Wind and Steel Wing.
-Pikachu has Thunderbolt, Eletro Ball, Iron Tail and Quick Attack (and has used the 4 attaks in XY)
-Chespin has Pin Missile, Tackle and Vine Whip.
-Bunnelby has Double Team, Dig, Mud Shot and DoubleSlap
-Dedenne has Nuzzle, Thundershock and Tackle.
-Inkay (yes) has Foul Play, Psybeam and Takle.
-Pumpkaboo (yes) has Shadow Ball and Leeh Seed.
But Fennekin: Ember. Nothing else. Not good.
But if the number of attaks aren't anything let's show how are battled in this saga so far:
Pikachu. Battles in the m,ajority of episodes. Also, Ash ahs used vs lemont and vs Viola.
Fletchling. Used vs Viola.
Froakie: Used to capture Fletchling. Expeted tpo use against Sylveon and Frogadier.
Bunnelby: Used against Ash and Citroid.
Chespin: Not used much but expected to use against a Delphox. And a plot with being hungry somewhere.
Dedenne: Dedenne hasn't done anything special but it's normal because it's in Bonnie's hands. And had his capture episode to him.
But Fennekin: What is going to do in the next episode? I saw nothing.
But there's another things that worried me. Even Dedenne is aparently getting more than Fennekin based on the previews.
And beause that, what we should hope about her and her pokemon in the show in the coming months? What could happened?
-Serena gets an active goal: Like Chateau, Contests, Maison. Note: don't expect being a co-star.
-Serena gets a semi-active goal: Like "Pokemon Stylist".
-Serena does nothing ative at all during her journey and she is only a supporting character.
But with all these flaws, there's still hopes.
-Since she joined the cast (episode 5), she has been in the background for one episode. Which is not bad for a character who has nothing to do at this moment.
-Serena has only gotten one pokemon. But it's normal if she hasn't got a goal yet.
-The episode about Battle Chateau has two key factors: it features a battle between 2 Gym Leaders and Grant has Onix who is not on his in-game team. Part of the fandom says it's because Ash will have a 3vs3 but I disagree at the moment.
-The issue with her lack of goal has already brought up in the show already.
-Revealing Serena's goal right now is like revealing the winner of a important battle. These previews try to spoil that as few as possible.
-Clemont is getting too muh focus. His new Bunnelby defeats an Heliolisk, his Chespin is doing ompetently against a Delphox (and that's huge). This too much focus is not going to last the 3-4 years of XY series.
What do you expect now with her?
