A Village Homecoming! (Japanese: アイリス、竜の里へ帰る！ Iris Returns to the Village of Dragons!) is the 100th episode of the Best Wishes series, and the 757th episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on October 25, 2012 and in the United States on February 16, 2013.
Ash and his friends finally arrive at the Village of Dragons, where they meet Shannon, Iris's childhood friend, who wants to be a Pokémon Breeder and currently takes care of two Zweilous. They go to meet the Village Elder, who judges Axew and Iris's progress and congratulates her on her work. Two other villagers ask if Iris has any other Dragon Pokémon and if they can see them. Outside, Iris calls out Dragonite, who promptly battles with a Haxorus. After being calmed down by the Elder, Dragonite is recalled, and Iris and her friends go to see Shannon. The Elder is then seen talking to a hidden Drayden about Iris. Shannon invites them in to have lunch, and when they finish, they find out that one of her Zweilous is gone. They soon find it by a lake, crying out as it evolves into Hydreigon. After seeing its reflection and using Draco Meteor in rage, Hydreigon goes on a rampage around the village. Using her Pokémon, Iris is eventually able to corner the Hydreigon and calm it down by jumping on its back and stroking its neck. The Elder congratulates her once again for a job well done. Later, Shannon apologizes for the day's events and finds the courage to ask the Elder if she can go on a journey after the other Zweilous evolves. The Elder says she has been waiting for her to ask and promptly agrees. Drayden makes his first public appearance to the gang, and Iris apologizes to him for leaving his school in Opelucid City. Drayden complements Iris for growing stronger and says that he will be waiting for her at the Opelucid Gym. She is overjoyed by the compliment, and the gang make their way to Opelucid City.
