When I played Moon so did I choose Litten, and I only gave her the name Shakira because some of my friends were talking something about Idol and mentioned that Shakira wouldn't have won because she didn't have the voice they were looking for, but still be remembered because she did her own thing.
On to my starter. As a Litten so was Shakira not sure why she got her name, but she thought it sounded good. And then she discovered catchy music tunes which inspired her to do her best.
She secretly went to teach herself how to dance without any other Pokémon looking.
When she evolved into Torracat so did she feel how her crafty arms made it harder for her to dance, but she's no longer afraid to show others her moves.
As an Incineroar so was she glad to see that she was fully bipedal, so dancing was easier. She may feel the urge to wrestle, but mostly she shows off her hips and attempts to sing (I'm sure that tiger Pokémon can't sing that good, but she's trying at least). She also likes to make sure that people and Pokémon knows that she's a woman and not mistake her for a male.
Something that never changes with her was how she's always there for her teammates and giving them the support they need.
