While on their way to Fallarbor Town, Ash and his friends noticed a Bagon trying to jump off a cliff. As it turned out, the Bagon belonged to Michelle. She informed Ash and the others that it wanted to evolve into a Salamence so that it could fly.
When Meowth heard about this, he immediately decided to help Bagon accomplish its goal, also trying to get the Dragon Pokémon on Team Rocket's side. Using a jet pack, he took Bagon and flew away with it. Thanks to Ash and his Pokémon, Bagon was saved from the trio. Immediately after its rescue, it evolved into Shelgon.

| Shelgon wanted to fly very badly when it was in its Bagon stage. The first thing it did was go to the highest cliff and jump from it. Every time Bagon did that, it would fall and hurt itself. Ash and his friends saw what it was doing and rushed to try to save it. Its owner, Michelle, came by and misinterpreted them as thieves, but Max told her that they were just trying to help the Bagon.
As everything got resolved, Michelle agreed for a Pokémon battle with Ash. Ash happily accepted and used Pikachu. During the middle of the battle, Team Rocket stole Pikachu, but Bagon flew by with a jet pack and rescued Pikachu. Pikachu then finished them off with a Thunderbolt. After Pikachu's rescue, Bagon evolved into a Shelgon, exciting everyone. Shelgon had one more step to go until it reaches its Salamence stage where it can officially fly.
Shelgon's only known move is Headbutt.
