Serena's reason for this was becauseshe lost her first Pokémon Showcase. In some Asian cultures, when somebody cuts his or her hair, it is to show that this person is abandoning the past and focusing on the future with new resolve.
Exactly my thoughts! It should have been something bigger, a bigger and unforgivable mistake by her.Well, that I'm OK with. For a moment, I was kinda thinking...
...Serena had simply cut her hair out of pure shame. I know that's also happened to a few Asian people too, when they've underperformed at something.
Well they are certainly trying to make her new. The change in hairstyle is a start.Leaving all the cultural significance mentioned aside, I wonder if this whole "new look, new Serena" thing is the program makers effectively admitting that they pitched her character slightly wrong
