[[File:Nana Poochyena.png|thumb|left|150px|Nana as a Poochyena]]
Prior to the start of the series Nana was given to {{adv|Ruby}} as a Poochyena as a {{pkmn2|gift}} from his father, [[Norman]]. One day when Ruby was playing with {{adv|Sapphire}} a [[{{TP|Zinnia's Salamence|Salamence]]}} attacked them. Ruby sent out Nana, [[Kiki]], and [[Rara]] to fend it off. The three managed to scare it away, but Ruby got injured in the process, which scared Sapphire. Because of this incident Ruby decided to never battle in front of people again.
Nana first appeared as a Poochyena in ''[[PS181|Creeping Past Cacnea]]'', where she was seen with Ruby on his trip to [[Hoenn]]. After running away from home Ruby runs into [[Professor Birch]] being attacked by two {{p|Mightyena}}. Ruby decides to battle the Mightyena, and sends out Nana and has her use {{m|Leer}}. The move doesn'tdoes not do anything due to Ruby caring only about appearances and the Mightyena pounce on them again, causing Ruby to fall off a cliff.

In ''[[PS194|Guile from Mawile]]'', Ruby went into [[Granite Cave]] in order to find a {{p|Milotic}}. During the trip he is attacked by a group of {{p|Mawile}} and in the fight Nana and Kiki both [[evolve]].
In ''[[PS209|Hanging Around With Slaking I]]'', Nana is used to fight alongside Kiki against Norman and his {{TP|Norman|Slaking}} and {{p|Delcatty}}. Nana fired a {{m|Hyper Beam}} while Kiki attacked with {{m|Iron Tail}}. Despite their strength, Kiki and Nana were easily swept away due to the fact that Norman knew all of Ruby's strategies, as he was the one to teach them to him.
In ''[[PS217|Mind-Boggling with Medicham]]'', Nana is used to advance Ruby through the [[Rank (Contest)|Normal Rank]] of the Cool Contest. In ''[[PS220|Going to Eleven with Loudred & Exploud I]]'', Nana is used alongside Ruby's other Pokémon to battle against {{FB|Magma Admin|Courtney}} and her {{p|Ninetales}}. Although Ruby had a five to one advantage his team was beaten due to Ninetales having control of nine different fireballs.
In ''[[PS223|I More Than Like You, Luvdisc I]]'', Nana is used to advance Ruby through the Super Rank of the Cool Contest. After the contest Nana is used in Ruby's battle against [[Wallace]] alongside the rest of his team, bar [[Feefee]], and loses. In ''[[PS227|I'm Always Grumpig First Thing in the Morning I]]'', Nana is sent out to protect Sapphire while being attacked by a herd of {{p|Grumpig}}, and accidentally reveals to Sapphire Ruby's true strength by knocking out all twelve of them with one {{m|Take Down|move}}.
In ''[[PS232|Always Keep Whiscash on You for Emergencies]]'', Nana is used to advance Ruby through the Hyper Rank of the Cool Contest.
==Personality and characteristics==
Nana is a cool and collected individual. Much like {{adv|Ruby}} she is flashy, loves to show off her looks, and hates getting dirty. Nana is also very stubborn at times and refuses to change her mind when she sets herself to a goal. Despite Ruby's distaste towards battling Nana is a very powerful battler.
