In the movies

Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

Juanita owns a souvenir shop in Eindoak Town that she operates with the assistance of her Golurk, selling various Victini-related goods during the Eindoak Harvest Festival.

Juanita and her young son

Years prior to the events of the movies, Juanita and her son Damon traveled to the ruined site where the Kingdom of the Vale once stood. Expressing a wish for the People of the Vale to be able to again live there, Juanita instilled the dream that would drive Damon's actions years later. In the present, when Damon explained his goals to his family, Juanita and Carlita supported him, along with Eindoak Town's mayor Mannes. However, they soon realized how far he was willing to go to accomplish the resurrection of the Kingdom of the Vale, including harming Victini and destroying the land because of the released Dragon Force. Juanita made a desperate bid to stop her son, sending Golurk to fight Damon's Reshiram or Zekrom. Her efforts failed, but before Reshiram or Zekrom could deliver a finishing blow to Golurk, the other dragon appears under the control of Ash intervened. Later, when the Sword of the Vale castle began flying out of control, Juanita evacuated on Mannes's helicopter and sent her Golurk to save Damon from falling to his death.

She is last seen once the Sword of the Vale is set down in a new location, encouraging Damon to fulfill their shared dream by aiding in the construction of a new Kingdom of the Vale there.

Juanita made a cameo appearance in I Choose You!, which is set in a timeline separate from the main series. She was seen with her Golurk in Eindoak Town.


Juanita is warm and gentle-natured. She is well-versed in the history and legends surrounding her ancestors, the People of the Vale, instilling such traditions and stories in her own children from a young age.
