He and his father Yosaku live in the Ilex Forest. They cut down trees and use them to make Charcoal. Sylvester tried to use his Farfetch'd and its Cut attack to cut down a tree, but it wouldn't listen to him. Ash told him that this was because he commanded it to use Cutting Attack, rather than Cut.
After it was stolen by Team Rocket, Sylvester helped save Farfetch'd. Realizing that its Trainer cared about it, Farfetch'd began to listen and helped Sylvester cut down trees for Charcoal. As a way of expressing his thanks, Sylvester and his father gave Ash and his friends some Charcoal.
This listing is of Sylvester's known Pokémon in the anime:
|Farfetch'd refused to listen to Sylvester initially because of his inexperience when he wanted to use it to slice trees and make Charcoal and it later ran away. Team Rocket find it wandering and corner it, it tries to run away and flies up to a tree, Jessie sends out her Lickitung and it steals its leek. It tries to escape again, but this time it is successfully captured by Team Rocket. Ash's Heracross spots it and the gang come, Ash's Pokémon break the net, but Lickitung quickly captures it with its tongue. After a long battle, Sylvester is able to grab its leek from Jessie, and is able to command it correctly, sending Team Rocket blasting off. Later it is able to slice a tree correctly to Yosaku's satisfaction.|
