- If you were looking for the character known as Shiro in prerelease screenshots, see Hilda (game).
Shiro showed up at Kenzo's dojo one day, stating that he wanted to battle and adding that he also wanted to be a shihan. He said his name, and explained that he came to challenge the shihan of the dojo to a Pokémon battle. Shiro, as explained by an angered Chigusa, is a Pokémon Trainer which fighting dojos call a "Dojo Destroyer". When a Dojo Destroyer defeats the shihans, he or she wins the plaques that hang in front of their dojos. At that point, Shiro possessed eleven plaques and sought an even dozen. His purpose was that he planned on opening his own Fighting-type Pokémon dojo back home, and he wanted his students’ respect.
The shihan of the Dojo Shiro visited, Kenzo, was too old to battle, however. Kenzo did not want his granddaughter Chigusa to be the next shihan, but because he could not battle himself, he allowed her to battle Shiro. She eventually succeeded defeating Shiro by using her Hitmontop. Shiro then stated to Kenzo that he saw why his dojo possessed such an excellent reputation, with Kenzo replying that he was gracious in defeat.

This listing is of Shiro's Pokémon in the anime:
|Hitmonlee is Shiro's only known Pokémon. Shiro used him to challenge Kenzo for the plaque to his dojo, but due to Kenzo's bad condition, Chigusa had to battle instead, with her Hitmontop against Hitmonlee. The match was interrupted however as Team Rocket appeared, trying to steal the Pokémon, and James's Victreebel's Sleep Powder caused Hitmonlee to fall asleep. The match was then postponed. During the rematch, Hitmonlee was defeated by Hitmontop.|

- Shiro's name was likely lost in translation, as ジ Ji is derivative of シ Shi with a diacritical mark.
