Shauntal in Pokémon Adventures

Shauntal is first seen as a stowaway on the Battle Subway. There, she meets White and explains to her that she is there to find inspiration for a new story. They are soon caught up in a battle between the Legendary Pokémon Thundurus and Tornadus. Shauntal reveals to White that she has been searching for them so she can find the inspiration she wanted. Shauntal uses her Jellicent to provoke the two Pokémon into fighting even further, much to White's shock. Despite her attempts to provoke them, the two Pokémon are calmed down and taken away by Landorus. The two then go to board the train, but Shauntal seems worried because she saw someone throw Poké Balls at the three Pokémon just as they were leaving.

When the Pokémon League begins, she and Grimsley travel via Shauntal's Golurk to meet up with their fellow Elite Four members. Although worried about Alder's recent defeat at the hands of N, Shauntal expresses glee at the idea of the battle against Team Plasma being a good idea for her next novel. The four then watch as spectators for the tournament before their battles can begin. Although the tournament is won by Black, the event is interrupted by Team Plasma, who attacks the stadium by surrounding it with N's Castle. Shauntal uses her Golurk to try and confront N at the top of the castle, but they are attacked by Hood Man, who uses Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus against them to try and figure out how to activate the three Pokémon's Therian Formes. After gaining sufficient information, Hood Man escaped, taking the Pokémon with him.

Trivia

  • According to an interview with Yusuke Ohmura in Nintendo Dream, Shauntal's theme is based on black cats. She is referred to as being seen as a nekomusume and the ribbon around her neck is shaped like a cat's head (the brooch being the nose).[1]
  • Shauntal is the only member of the Unova Elite Four who does not share a specialty type with that of an Indigo Plateau Elite Four member from Generations II and IV. Instead, she shares her specialty type with an Indigo Plateau Elite Four member from Generations I and III: Agatha.
  • Shauntal is the only member of the Unova Elite Four who changes a Pokémon in her initial team between Black and White and Black 2 and White 2, swapping out her Jellicent for a Drifblim. This coincides with the introduction of Marlon, whose highest-leveled Pokémon is Jellicent.
  • Shauntal shares her Japanese name with that of the anime-exclusive town "Cremini Town", which is also called "Shikimi".
