She first appeared in A Village Homecoming! when Ash, Iris, and Cilan came by on their way to Vertress City. Shannon said she had been asked to take care of two Zweilous by the Village Elder. Later, near Shannon's house, one of the Zweilous evolves into a Hydreigon. Surprised that it had evolved, it began attacking in random directions, but Iris eventually calms it down. Afterwards, Shannon asked the Elder if she could go on a journey once the second Zweilous evolved. The Elder agreed, telling Shannon that she only had to ask.
