Shooti was introduced in BW001 as a beginning Trainer ready to choose his first Pokémon. After meeting with Professor Araragi, he chose Snivy as his new partner. Shortly after obtaining it, he challenged Ash Ketchum to a Pokémon battle. He had much interest in battling Pikachu, a species that is foreign in his region. Because Pikachu could not use any Electric attacks, Shooti easily defeated Ash.
Shooti appeared again at a Battle Club in BW010, where he and Ash had a 5 on 5 battle. He offered to have a full battle with Ash, which means that he has access to at least 6 Pokémon. His Hatooboo defeated Ash's Oshawott and Tepig in one hit with its Super Luck-boosted Aerial Ace. Afterwards, Shooti called Ash's Pikachu and Snivy to be so-so, and the rest of his team to be hopeless causes.
He is a quiet individual who prefers to keep his emotions to himself and becomes annoyed by Ash's overly-expressive personality, referring to him as a hillbilly multiple times. He insults Ash by calling him a weak Trainer. He bears many parallels to Paul.
Despite having just started out as a Trainer, Shooti already implements many strategies in his battling. He has defeated Ash both times that they have battled, despite Ash being a much more experienced Trainer.

|Shooti's Hatooboo|| |
|Shooti's Hatooboo is the second Pokémon that Shooti was revealed to have. It first appeared in BW010 where Shooti used it to battle Ash's Oshawott, Ash's Tepig and Ash's Pikachu. It was shown to be powerful, as its Super Luck ability allowed it to take down both Oshawott and Tepig with one hit. It defeated the former two, before losing to Pikachu.|
|Shooti's Pururiru|| |
|Shooti's Pururiru is the third Pokémon that Shooti was revealed to have. He first appeared in BW010 where Shooti used him to battle Ash's Snivy and Mamepato. It defeated Mamepato, and also Snivy after a long battle, where it was able to take advantage of Cursed Body due to Snivy's constant use of physical attacks.|
Shooti has access to at least another 3 Pokémon, because he offered to have a full battle with Ash.
This listing is of the badges Shooti has obtained:
- Shooti is one of the first Pokémon photographers since Todd Snap to appear in the anime.
- Shooti is Ash's third rival whose Japanese name starts with the kana シ shi, the other two being "Shigeru" and "Shinji" respectively.
- Notably "Shū", the Japanese name of May's rival Drew, also starts with this same letter. This makes Shooti the fifth major rival in the anime who's name starts with a シ or a variation of it.
- Shooti owns a member from each of the only two Pokémon families in Generation V that have gender differences.
