Emolga made his debut when visiting Greg's sister Gabrielle with Greg. Greg used Emolga against Pik, but lost due to Pik's incredible power. During lunch, Team Rocket attempted to steal him and the rest of Greg's Pokemon and Gabrielle's Pikachu, Pik. But they were saved by their trainers and Gabe had Team Rocket sent blasting off with Pik's help. After that, Emolga was called back into his Poke Ball.
