Shauna (Japanese: シノブ Shinobu) is a minor recurring character of the Pokémon anime and a minor Trainer in Generation III games.

In the anime

She appeared in A Meditite Fight! and Just One of the Geysers.

Shauna first appeared to challenge Ash Ketchum 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.

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

Due to a dubbing error, 4Kids Entertainment named her "Shauna" rather than "Tessa". This is similar to the situation that happened with Shelly and Tabitha being named Isabelle and Harlan, respectively.


Shauna's Meditite
Meditite is Shauna's only known Pokémon whom she trains with. It first appeared in a battle against Ash and his Pikachu. It starts off with Focus Punch which Pikachu dodges. When Pikachu attacks, Meditite's Detect comes in handy when suddenly Brawly appears and Meditite is recalled. Later Shauna wants to finish the match with Ash. The battle is quickly being controlled by Shauna when Ash tells Pikachu to imagine that Meditite is a wave. Pikachu manages to dodge then uses Thunderbolt to knock Meditite out.

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

In the games

The same Battle Girl, also named Shinobu (Tessa in English version) appears in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald as one of Trainers in Dewford Gym. Surprisingly, in the English version of Pokémon Emerald she was renamed Jocelyn. Her team also changed in Emerald version. Meditite is present in both of her teams.

  • Before battle
"There's no need for Brawly to be involved! I'll crush you!"
  • When defeated
"But... How? How could I lose so easily?"
  • After being defeated
"I'm not going to waste this loss. I'll use it to motivate me to train!"


  • Shauna has three English names—Tessa (from RS), Shauna (from the anime) and Jocelyn (from E).
  • In the anime, Shauna states that she is a Battle Girl, just like she is in the games.
  • Shauna looks very similar to the Battle Girl sprite in Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald besides the color of her clothes.
