Mariah works with her grandmother, Cadee, and McCauley, who make healing potions using electricity. She came across Ash battling with Brock. Her Flaaffy got accidentally attacked by Brock's Marshtomp's Mud Shot. Brock offered to give it some medicine, but Mariah politely refused. She then carried her Flaaffy back to her grandmother's pharmacy to get healed.
At the pharmacy, Brock wasted no time flirting with Mariah. It was also soon discovered that Marshtomp had a thing for Mariah's Flaaffy. Brock automatically took this as a sign that he and Mariah were destined to be together. However, Mariah seemed to have more of an interest in McCauley than Brock.
Later, Mariah got taken away along with the whole pharmacy by Team Rocket, who wanted all the medicine for themselves to sell. McCauley jumped into the flying pharmacy, in order to save Mariah and the medicine. Brock attempted to help out by using Marshtomp's Mud Shot to shoot down the balloon, but Team Rocket reflected it back, and the Mud Shot ended up hurting Ash's Pikachu and Cadee's Mareep. They then quickly needed to make potion to make them better. Both Mariah and McCauley decided to use their Flaaffy and Ampharos, respectively, to make a new batch of medicine. Afterwards, they used their Pokémon to destroy the engines on Team Rocket's balloon, causing it to crash.
After Team Rocket was defeated, Cadee felt confident enough to leave the pharmacy to McCauley and Mariah.
| After Marshtomp launched a Mud Shot attack, it accidentally ended up hitting Mariah's Flaaffy. Its Trainer, went up to it and Ash and his friends apologized for the mishap. Marshtomp immediately fell in love with Flaaffy while Brock had the same with Mariah. She took them to her pharmacy and told them that Flaaffy makes potions with its electricity along with the other Pokémon that work there. When Team Rocket arrived to steal all the potions, it was used along with McCauley's Ampharos to make a better potion to heal both Cadee's Mareep and Ash's Pikachu after they were hit by Marshtomp's deflected Mud Shot. Flaaffy, along with the other electric Pokémon, then send Team Rocket flying.
Flaaffy's only known move is Thunder.

- Her Japanese name, Momoko, was intended to be a play on Flaaffy's Japanese name, Mokoko. A similar incident would happen with Forsythia and Budew's Japanese names.
