In the anime

As a Bounsweet

Prior to Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon, Mallow and her mother met Tsareena as a Bounsweet in the forest behind the Pokémon School. Mallow's mother then caught Bounsweet for her daughter to keep so she wouldn't be lonely.

Tsareena debuted as a Bounsweet in Alola to New Adventure! alongside her Trainer. Bounsweet accompanied Mallow on her tour of the Pokémon School for Ash and Pikachu, happily sharing her pleasant scent for them to enjoy. She later watched several Team Skull Grunts battle Kiawe.

In First Catch in Alola, Ketchum-Style!, Bounsweet was attacked by a wild Rowlet, who was attracted to her scent and mistook her for a fruit. Bounsweet quickly responded to the attack, deflecting the Rowlet multiple times with ease before it tired itself out.

As a Steenee

In A Seasoned Search!, Bounsweet helped Ash and Mallow lure in and subsequently follow a wild Oricorio to the Melemele Meadow, so that they could collect the Nectar necessary for the food Mallow was trying to perfect. However, soon after finding the meadow, they were attacked by Team Rocket, who tried to steal the Nectar for themselves. In order to save everyone, Bounsweet attacked Team Rocket and proceeded to evolve into Steenee. This allowed it to recover the stolen Nectar, free Ash and Mallow, and defeat Team Rocket.

In When Regions Collide!, Steenee was used in a battle against Misty's Psyduck alongside Lana's Popplio. Steenee started the battle with Magical Leaf while Popplio quickly followed with Bubble Beam. Psyduck then counterattacked with Water Gun. Popplio then created a water balloon, absorbing the Water Gun, which it then launched at the Duck Pokémon, trapping it inside. Misty commanded Psyduck to use Confusion, but Psyduck didn't respond. Steenee then attacked with another Magical Leaf, breaking the balloon and causing Psyduck land on its head, giving it a headache. This allowed Psyduck to successfully use Confusion, but before it could do anything more to its opponents, Misty told Psyduck to put Popplio and Steenee down, saying that they had had enough.

In Rescuing the Unwilling!, Steenee was among those used to fight Lusamine's Mismagius, Milotic, and Lilligant, which were under Nihilego's control, to allow Ash to save Lusamine. Going up against Milotic, Steenee countered its attack with Double Slap. Lilligant then made her dance with Teeter Dance, but Ash's Litten and Rowlet released her from the dance, joining the fight. In the next episode, Steenee emitted her own Sweet Scent to lure Rowlet back to her. She then launched Rowlet into the air with her Double Slap, and asked Mallow to throw her up as well. Steenee kicked Rowlet back towards the ground, and, combined with Rowlet's high-speed Peck attack, they used a move Lana dubbed "Rowlaunch" on Lilligant. The attack angered Lilligant, causing it to charge up its Solar Beam attack, but Litten interrupted the move with Fire Fang. Although Lilligant appeared to have been defeated by this move, Nihilego made it get back up and continue battling. The battle ended when Ash and Pikachu performed 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt to defeat Nihilego.

In All They Want to Do is Dance Dance!, in preparation for the PokéDance class set up by Professor Kukui, Steenee was taught a dance called the "Alola Hula" by Anela's Oricorio. When the day of the dance class finally came, Steenee stepped away from the others to do some last-minute practice. Due to this, she failed to notice how all of the humans and the rest of the Pokémon present stepped into what turned out to be a pair of cage traps set up by Team Rocket. Noticing that Steenee was still free, Team Rocket fired a net at her, binding her arms and sepals. When Meowth accidentally revealed that the cages have a weak point at the top, Mallow told Steenee to attack it. With her sepals and hands binded by the net, Steenee had to resort to using her feet in order to attack the weak point. While doing this, Steenee unexpectedly learned Stomp, which immediately triggered her evolution into Tsareena. After evolving, Tsareena demonstrated her increased leg strength by using Trop Kick on Meowth and breaking the cages open with ease. After Team Rocket had been carried away by Bewear, Mallow happily greeted her newly evolved partner, who proceeded to perform a new, enhanced version of "Rowlauch" with Rowlet.

In Securing the Future!, Tsareena joined the rest of Alola in showering Necrozma with light so it could return to its normal form.

In Battling Besties!, Mallow used Tsareena in her battle against Lana during the first round of the Manalo Conference, going up against her Primarina. Despite a type advantage, Tsareena, as a less experienced battler, was forced to stay defensive most of the time. After she took damage from Primarina's super-effective Icy Wind, Mallow attempted to recall her and forfeit the match to save her from further harm, but Tsareena refused to go back into her Poké Ball. Lana told Mallow that Tsareena wanted to keep on fighting by her side, reminding Mallow of the times she had shared with her partner, and decided to respect her wish to continue battling. With their connection stronger than ever before, Mallow and Tsareena were able to execute a successful Bloom Doom. However, Lana countered this by having Primarina use Oceanic Operetta, with the two Z-Moves canceling each other out. Tsareena was then defeated by an Aqua Jet from Primarina, ending Mallow's run in the Manalo Conference.

Personality and characteristics

Meeting Mallow for the first time
Tsareena and Mallow

Tsareena is a friendly Pokémon, happily interacting with people and other Pokémon. She is not easily discouraged, staying positive even after Lillie was frightened by her attempts to play with her. She has a strong relationship with her Trainer. As a Bounsweet, she was normally seen resting on Mallow's shoulder. Tsareena also likes to help Mallow out at her family's restaurant, serving food to customers as the restaurant's poster Pokémon. In the events before Drawn with the Wind!, Tsareena even volunteered to stay behind with Abe to help in the kitchen while Mallow took Shaymin to go sightseeing overnight in Malie City with her classmates. In addition, she loves flowers, as shown in The Ol' Raise and Switch. According to Mallow, she likes floral-patterned Poké Beans. In That's Some Spicy Island Research!, Tsareena was revealed to like the taste of Poni Island radishes.

Tsareena is a very agile Pokémon. As a Bounsweet, she often used her quick reflexes to deflect Rowlet whenever it flew toward her. However, after evolving for the first time, she started displaying this trait much less often, due to no longer needing to worry about being consumed by other Pokémon. After evolving again, Tsareena also gained great kicking strength, as well as a more proud and mature personality, although she still remains friendly and respectful towards Mallow. Her maturity has been shown by her willingness to take action in order to help out people such as stomping on Kiawe in The Long Vault Home!, in order to snap him out of his state of fear after seeing the inside of a Stakataka and by kicking away a Bruxish that was about to attack Mallow in The One That Didn't Get Away!. Despite her maturity, she tends to lose her temper when she doesn't manage to succeed in a given task, as displayed in Living on the Cutting Edge!, where she kept stomping on a makawari after failing to cut it with her Magical Leaf. Her willingness to not give up is a positive aspect of her character, as seen in Battling Besties!, where she refused to go back to her Poké Ball, due to wanting to continue fighting alongside Mallow.

Tsareena also enjoys relaxing, like in I Choose Paradise!, where, whilst most of the Pokémon were playing in the pool, she relaxed on a sun lounger at the Pokémon Paradise Resort. In Memories in the Mist!, Mallow mentioned during a flashback that she saw her Tsareena, which was Bounsweet at the time, as her little sister. In turn, Tsareena appears to care for Shaymin like a big sister, as mentioned by Mallow in a flashback in Drawn with the Wind!.

In the manga

Tsareena in Pokémon Adventures
As a Steenee in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Tsareena first appeared as a Steenee in Homecoming and the Brilliant Professional Golfer. She was called out alongside Moon's Pokémon to assist them in finding a Mirage Berry at Lush Jungle. Steenee asked the wild Pokémon in the area to help by gathering several Berries into a large pile. Once the task was complete, Moon successfully found a Mirage Berry from the gathered pile. Afterwards, Steenee was used at Memorial Hill to battle a group of Team Skull Grunts that claimed to have attacked Kiawe.

Later, Steenee was used to battle the Ultra Beasts used by Guzma at Po Town. Together with Kiawe's Marowak, she fought a Pheromosa before being defeated by a Celesteela.

In PASM31, Steenee was revealed to have evolved into Tsareena while training with the other Trial Captains' Pokémon on Exeggutor Island. She was later used to battle a group of Ultra Beasts commanded by Aether Foundation Employees.

In PASM34, when the Trial Captains were attacked by a group of Ultra Beasts, Mallow used Tsareena to battle them, with Tsareena defeating a Pheromosa.
