History

As a wild Pokémon

Nagisa with its hair uncut

Nagisa first appeared in the first episode of the Where Are You Going, Eevee? shorts. It was exploring in the streets of a town, only to run foul of a Houndour when it stole its food. It managed to escape Houndour, and after seeing the ocean, it set sail on a boat. It reappeared in the second episode of the segment, where it fell off the boat. However, it was rescued by a Mantine, which took Eevee on its back so it could bring it to the shore.

In the third episode of the segment, Eevee and Mantine decided to try Mantine Surfing on a nearby wave. While it initially kept getting knocked off whenever Mantine did a flip, Eevee eventually learned how to time its jumps with Mantine's flips, allowing it to stay on Mantine's back. At the end of the fourth episode of the segment, Eevee arrived in Alola, where it said its farewells to Mantine and proceeded to explore the island. It first chased after a Wimpod before eating some Nanab Berries.

In the fifth episode of the segment, Eevee encountered Ash and his classmates' Pokémon for the first time and befriended them. In the sixth episode, Eevee played with them at the beach and even helped knock some Berries down from a tree to share with them. At sunset, the other Pokémon returned to their respective Trainers, while Eevee sadly returned to its impromptu home under a tree trunk to sleep.

In We Know Where You're Going, Eevee!, Eevee wanted to see its new friends again, so it wandered around Hau'oli City, and eventually ended up getting chased by an Alolan Persian. After being rescued by Lana's Popplio, both ended up falling into a river and washed up on the Hau'oli City Beachfront, where they encountered Team Skull Grunts Tupp, Rapp, and Zipp. Tupp and Rapp began fighting over Eevee, as the former wanted Eevee to make him popular with girls while the latter found Eevee to be cute. They were stopped when Lana and her friends arrived. With its newly-learned Surf, Popplio created a platform of water for Eevee to jump on, allowing it to use a powerful Double-Edge and send the Team Skull Grunts blasting off. After some encouragement from Ash and Mallow, Lana asked Eevee if it wanted to join her team, which it happily accepted. Eevee was named Nagisa and caught in a Dive Ball. After returning home and introducing Nagisa to her family, Lana gave Nagisa a haircut, cutting its long bangs to a shorter length resembling her own hair. This got rid of the hair that kept blocking its vision, much to Nagisa's pleasure.

Personality and characteristics

Nagisa riding Brionne's Surf wave

Nagisa is adventurous and gluttonous, traits that often got it into trouble, such as when it ate a Houndour's food without permission, angering the Houndour into chasing it off. Nagisa is also extremely playful, like when it enjoyed falling into the ocean after falling off Mantine when it was Mantine Surfing. However, it is also easily scared as well, such as when it ran from a Houndour and later when it found itself lost at sea.

Nagisa is particularly playful towards new Pokémon, but prone to roughhousing, greeting friends old and new with a hearty Tackle[1]. As a result, it tends to get into trouble. In the fourth episode of the segment, it chased after a Wimpod despite it actually being scared. In the fifth episode of the segment, Nagisa cuddled a Pyukumuku, inadvertently angering it into attacking.

Nagisa and Brionne, while it was a Popplio, quickly became best friends after meeting each other, and appears to look up to it like an older sibling. In SM106, it was seen enthusiastically mimicking Popplio as it was training with Ida's Primarina, singing along with the master and its disciple. It even became friends with the Pokémon owned by its Trainer's friends. Nagisa quickly became loyal to Lana and bonded with her right away, after she helped protect it from Team Skull. Nagisa cares for its friends even in dire situations, such as changing to a slow pace so that it can run beside Popplio as they ran away from a Madame's Persian, Pershie. In SM104, Nagisa was shown to love the taste of Poni Island daikon. Nagisa loves the ocean and enjoys playing in it no matter what the activity.
