Melody is a resident of [[Shamouti Island]] in the [[Orange Archipelago|Orange Islands]]. Melody at first glance did not really seem to be a sociable person. She met {{Ash}}, {{an|Misty}}, {{Tracey}} and [[Maren]] at the docks of the[[Shamouti islandIsland]], dressed in casual clothes. It was her turn to lead the annual legend festival as the Festival Maiden, since her older sister [[Carol]] was too old. Melody was not too thrilled to do it, but upon observing Ash and learning he was a [[Pokémon Trainer]], she instantly changed her mind and accepted her role, welcoming Ash with a "[[KissShipping|traditional welcome kiss]]", touching a nerve of Misty's. During the festival dinner, Melody later informed Ash of his goal to retrieve three glass balls from the surrounding islands and bring them to the island's shrine.
Melody, escorted Misty, and Tracey later headed out on Melody'sher boat to find Ash when a storm hit the island. They located Ash on [[Fire Island]] with Team Rocket{{TRT}}, after which they all witnessed the arrival of {{DL|Legendary birds (M02)|Zapdos}} and its conversation with {{AP|Pikachu}}. Just then, they were kidnapped by [[Lawrence III]]'s airship. After Lawrence III explained his intent to collect all of the [[legendary birds]] and {{p|Lugia}}, Melody began to suspect the legend of the island might be true. This was confirmed later on when {{OBP|Lugia|M02}} appeared to stop the legendary birds as they fought against one another. Ash set out using the remains of Melody's destroyed boat to gain the final treasure ball from Ice Island. However, when Lugia and Ash disappear into the sea, Melody allowed Misty to go out and find Ash. In the process, the two formed a friendship, as Melody had previously joked repeatedly about Misty and Ash being [[PokéShipping|a couple]]. Melody and the island shrine's guardian, {{OBP|Slowking|M02}}, awaited Ash's return. When he did return and inserted the final treasure into the shrine, Melody stepped up and started playing a tune resembling Lugia's song on her ocarina, the main role of the Festival Maiden. This stopped the storms, calmed the seas, and rejuvenated the fallen legendary birds, including Lugia.
Melody briefly reappeared in a montage in ''[[M10|The Rise of Darkrai]]'', which chronicled the preceding nine {{pkmn|movie}}s.
Melody first appeared as a disgruntled girl who felt constrained by her isolated [[Shamouti Island]] life. From her desire to be independent, she became rebellious and her relationship with her older sister [[Carol]] had become strained. Though meeting {{Ash}} gave her the perfect opportunity to escape and test herself. Her confrontation with the world's end and {{OBP|Lugia|M02}} led her to develop her own relationship with her heritage, as she appeared in a traditional tunic dress and played the ocarina.
