Lana debuted in ''[[SM001|Alola to New Adventure!]]'', where she met {{Ash}} and {{AP|Pikachu}} while fishing with Popplio on a [[Poké Ride]] {{p|Lapras}}. She and Ash met again at the Pokémon School, where Ash decided to join her class to study the Pokémon of [[Alola]] under their teacher {{an|Professor Kukui}}.
In ''[[SM002|The Guardian's Challenge!]]'', Lana participated in the surprise welcome party her class threw for Ash to celebrate his enrollment into the school. She challenged Ash to a Pokémon swimming contest as his third "surprise", which Popplio won due to its superior swimming ability. She later bore witness to Ash and Pikachu's {{pkmn|battle}} against {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Koko}}, the [[Guardian deities|guardian deity]] of Melemele.
In ''[[SM005|Yo, Ho, Ho! Go, Popplio!]]'', Lana received help from Ash while training Popplio how to blow human-sized water balloons, revealing her dream to one day use them to explore the ocean depths and discover new undersea Pokémon. She was also chosen to give a class lecture on sea Pokémon, loaning Ash a [[fishing]] rod at her house and introducing him to her sisters. During the lecture, the class's Ride Pokémon were caught in a net by {{TRT}}, who infuriated Lana with their disregard for the other Pokémon they had inadvertently caught. Together with Ash, she was able to bring the captured Pokémon to safety by using Popplio's water balloons.
