Shannon (Japanese: ショウブ Shōbu) is a character of the day who appeared in A Village Homecoming!. She is a resident of the Village of Dragons and a childhood friend of Iris as well as a Pokémon Breeder.
Shannon first greeted Iris, Ash, and Cilan when the trio came to the Village of Dragons for a visit. She explained that she was entrusted with the care of two Zweilous, which were close as they hatched from their eggs on the same day, and invited the three for a visit at her house. When the three met up with her after visting elder, she revealed that she had dreams of leaving the Village of Dragons and traveling like Iris, but felt that she couldn't abandon the Pokémon she was raising. Iris, however, prompted her to shed her nervousness and ask the elder about it.
Later, when one of the Zweilous evolved into Hydreigon and Iris took the task to calm the Brutal Pokémon upon herself, she was seen visibly worried for the young Dragon Master. When Hydreigon was calmed down, thanks to efforts of Iris and her Pokémon, Shannon asked the elder if she could go on a journey once the second Zweilous evolved. The elder agreed, telling Shannon that she only needed to ask.
She reappeared in a flashback in Drayden Versus Iris: Past, Present, and Future!.

|Shannon raised her two Zweilous from Eggs as Deino, and they evolved some time after that. This Zweilous was the younger of the two, and was close to what he considered to be his older brother. When the elder brother evolved into Hydreigon, Zweilous was the one that warned Shannon what was about to happen.
Zweilous's only known move is Double Hit.

|Hydreigon first appeared as one of the two Zweilous Shannon owned and was the older of the two. Shannon raised her two Zweilous from Eggs as Deino, and they evolved some time after that. Like many Zweilous, this Pokémon had a large appetite and was close to his "little brother." After evolving, he was terrified after seeing his new form and started to go on a rampage. Eager to prove herself as a future Dragon Master, Iris used her Dragonite and Emolga to force Hydreigon into a corner and then called on Axew and Excadrill to keep him contained. Iris then jumped on Hydreigon and was able to get him to calm down. He was then reunited with his brother.
He reappeared in a flashback in Best Wishes Until We Meet Again!.
Hydreigon's known moves are Draco Meteor and Dragon Rush.
