Shannon (Japanese: ショウブ Shōbu) is a character of the day who appeared in A Village Homecoming!. She is a resident of the Village of Dragons and a childhood friend of Iris as well as a Pokémon Breeder.


Shannon first greeted Iris, Ash, and Cilan when the trio came to the Village of Dragons for a visit. She explained that she was entrusted with the care of two Zweilous, who were close as they hatched from their eggs on the same day, and invited the three for a visit at her house. When the three met up with her after visiting elder, she revealed that she had dreams of leaving the Village of Dragons and traveling like Iris, but felt that she couldn't abandon the Pokémon she was raising. Iris, however, prompted her to shed her nervousness and ask the elder about it.

Later, when one of the Zweilous evolved into Hydreigon and Iris took the task of calming the Brutal Pokémon upon herself, she was seen visibly worried for the young Dragon Master. When Hydreigon was calmed down, thanks to the efforts of Iris and her Pokémon, Shannon asked the elder if she could go on a journey once the second Zweilous evolved. The elder agreed, telling Shannon that she only needed to ask.

She reappeared in a flashback in Drayden Versus Iris: Past, Present, and Future!.

Egg → Deino → Zweilous → Hydreigon
Hydreigon first appeared as one of the two Zweilous Shannon owned and was the older of the two. Shannon raised her two Zweilous from Eggs as Deino, and they evolved some time after that. Like many Zweilous, this Pokémon had a large appetite and was close to his "little brother." After evolving, he was terrified after seeing his new form and started to go on a rampage. Eager to prove herself as a future Dragon Master, Iris used her Dragonite and Emolga to force Hydreigon into a corner and then called on Axew and Excadrill to keep him contained. Iris jumped on Hydreigon and was able to get him to calm down. He was later reunited with his brother.

He reappeared in a flashback in Best Wishes Until We Meet Again!.

Hydreigon's known moves are Draco Meteor and Dragon Rush.
