This Swanna belongs to Skyla of the Mistralton Gym and it is considered her most powerful pokémon. When Cilan challenged Skyla, Swanna was the last Pokemon she used. It defeated Cilan's Crustle and Stunfisk, despite having a severe weakness against the latters Electric attacks. It once again overcame severe type disadvantage during Skyla's battle with Ash, managing to block Pikachu'sThunderbolt by using Aqua Ring as a shield and overwhelming him with Hurricane and Brave Bird. It then battled Ash's Tranquill and at first it appeared to have the advantage but then Tranquil evolved into Unfezant and defeated Swanna with a powerful Aerial Ace.
