The Sinnoh Now crew first appeared in The Champ Twins!, where they were seen doing a story on a Pokémon Training Camp, focusing on two of the campers and their ability to test the strength of any Trainer they challenge.
Their next appearance was in A Secret Sphere of Influence!, where they were briefly seen outside the Eterna Historical Museum. They were in Eterna City to report the theft of the Adamant Orb, which was later retrieved thanks to Gardenia and Officer Jenny.
They appeared again in Top-Down Training! to announce the recent discovery of the Lustrous Orb, which was found at the ancient ruins in Celestic Town giving scientists hope to learn more about the legends of Sinnoh.
In Mass Hip-Po-Sis!, they were filming a documentary about Hippopotas and their migration when one of the Hippopotas got separated from its herd and they decided filming it alone would be a better story. They encountered Ash, Dawn, and Brock during filming and informed them the whereabouts of the herd. When the group revealed that they would help Hippopotas to find its herd, the crew started following them. However, after Jack was hit by Hippopotas's Yawn and fell asleep, they ended up getting separated from Ash and his friends. For this reason, they lost their chance of filming Hippopotas reuniting with its herd.
In Our Cup Runneth Over!, it was announced on Sinnoh Now that Wallace had arrived in the Sinnoh region to host the Wallace Cup. When the crew discovered that Wallace took a day off to relax and have some quality time with his Milotic, they decided to go looking for him so they could record a video of him during his free time. When they found him, they hid in the bushes to secretly film him. However, the camera they were using had run out of batteries and they could not cover the story.
In Losing Its Lustrous!, it was reported on Sinnoh Now that the Adamant Orb had been stolen. It was revealed that at the time of the theft the Adamant Orb was in the process of being transported from the Eterna City Museum, and heading to the Celestic Town Historical Research Center.
The crew later appeared in Beating the Bustle and Hustle! to cover the auditions for the Sinnoh Pokémon Hustle that were being held near Lake Acuity, not realizing it was actually a Team Rocket scheme to steal all the participants' Pokémon.
They reappeared in Last Call — First Round! to cover the meet-and-greet to kick off the Sinnoh Grand Festival, during which Rhonda interviewed several Coordinators, including Nando, Jessilina, and Dawn.
