Podungo along with her fellow Amateur Hunters survey the country of Kakin to find new species of animals. Her and the other Amateur Hunters are left in shock and awe when they find out Gon is the son of the legendary Hunter Ging Freecss, Killua is from the renowned group of assassins the Zoldyck Family, and the both of them are Pro-hunters. After the Amateur Hunters all introduce themselves and enjoy a meal together, Podungo and Spin talk about and show Gon and Killua one of Kite's best find the Camp Tiger.[1] With there exploration Kakin completed Kite and the Amateur Hunters report their findings to the Kakin Zoologist Won. In thanks for their hard work, Won informs the group that the Southernpiece auction house obtained a strange part of an amazing and unknown species of sort, and they're now hiring Hunters to find and capture a live specimen.[2]

Thanks to Won's influence Podungo with the other Amateur Hunters, Gon, Killua, and Kite manage to see the part of the unknown species at the Auction House. After examining the part Podungo expresses interest in analyzing the piece and Mon volunteers to stay behind to help her. Podungo later contacts Kite and informs him the part came from a Chimera Ant Queen.[2] Sometime after the search on the beach the Amateur Hunters research 10 or more people whom have gone missing in the last 6 months and come up with nothing. So after learning the where the Chimera Ant Queen could be in the Mitene Union near NGL, Kite and group head to the NGL Border are greeted by two representatives.[3]

After various screening and examinations preformed to exclude any visitors not meeting the NGL conditions and the only people who meet those conditions are Stick, Podungo, Gon, Killua, and Kite. When the group enter NGL they all rent horses and take along two NGL Interpreters as guides.[4] Though after some time in NGL Kite and the group get an S.O.S. message from one of Ponzu's bees detailing the Chimera Ant's Nest location and for someone to contact the Hunter Association. Kite sensing immediate danger sends Podungo and Stick back to the border to get help.[5]

Podungo later accompanies Banana, Mon, and Spin in a truck heading back to the NGL border with Knov, Morel Mackernasey, and Chairman Netero in the back of the truck.[6]
