In the anime
Corn appears in BW005 alongside fellow Gym Leaders Dent and Pod. Along with Pod, he makes his first appearance when serving Ash. Ash declines saying he wants to battle the Gym Leader and the three brothers introduce themselves. They followed Ash to the battleground where they revealed their Pokémon.
He, like his brothers, tends to speak about Pokémon in relation to their element, in this case, water. Unlike his brothers, Corn tends to speak about himself in third-person. All the brothers tend to use hand positions like rock, paper, and scissors - in Corn's case, he tends to accentuate words with his palms.
This listing is of Corn's known Pokémon in the anime:
|Ash's Hiyappu|| |
|Hiyappu is Corn's only known Pokémon. It first appeared when Corn showed what Pokémon he has and Ash scans it on his Pokédex. It was the second Pokémon to face Ash in his gym battle, Ash used Pikachu. Hiyappu's Double Team confused Pikachu, after which Hiyappu landed a powerful Scratch. Pikachu tried to use Thunderbolt, but Hiyappu's Water Gun hit Pikachu before he could execute his move. Pikachu then tried a Volt Tackle, but Hiyappu's Mud Sport stopped Pikachu in his tracks, after which another Water Gun knocked him out.|
