Shauna (Japanese: シノブ Shinobu) is a non-player character in the Hoenn-based games and a minor recurring character in the Pokémon anime.

In the games

Shauna is a Battle Girl who appears as one of the Trainers in the Dewford Gym in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, their Generation VI remakes Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, as well as in Pokémon Emerald.

In the English versions of Ruby, Sapphire, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire, she is named Tessa, whereas in the English version of Emerald, she is named Jocelyn. Due to a dubbing error, 4Kids Entertainment named her "Shauna" rather than "Tessa" in the anime. This is similar to the situation that happened with Shelly and Tabitha being named "Isabelle" and "Harlan", respectively.

Her Japanese name is the same in all of the games she appears and the anime. Her team has changed between versions, but has always contained a Meditite.

In the anime

Shauna first appeared in A Meditite Fight!, where she challenged Ash to a Pokémon battle after she heard about him losing to Brawly, her mentor. She fought with her Meditite against Ash's Pikachu and ended up losing. She told Ash and his friends that she was the apprentice and girlfriend of Brawly, which they found out later wasn't true after May asked her about it in front of him. Shauna felt really sorry about lying but Brawly forgave her. At the end of the episode, Brawly asked Shauna to be his apprentice.

Shauna judged Ash's rematch against Brawly in Just One of the Geysers.

Shauna's Meditite
Meditite
Meditite is Shauna's only known Pokémon. It first appeared in a battle against Ash and his Pikachu. It started off with Focus Punch, which Pikachu dodged. Pikachu then tried to attack, but Meditite avoided the hit with Detect. In the middle of the battle, Brawly appeared, and Meditite was recalled. Later, Shauna sent Meditite out when she wanted to finish her battle with Ash. Shauna and Meditite quickly took over the control of the battle, but suddenly Ash came up with an idea, and told Pikachu to imagine that Meditite was a wave. Using this strategy, Pikachu was able to avoid Meditite's attacks and then use Thunderbolt to defeat Meditite.

According to Brawly, Shauna has trained with Meditite ever since she was a child.

Meditite's known moves are Meditate, High Jump Kick, Detect, and Focus Punch.
