In the anime

The Soothe Bells from Smells Like Team Spirit!
The Soothe Bells on Ash's desk

A Soothe Bell first appeared in the anime in Showdown At Linoone as one of the items Tokin had picked up.

Soothe Bells appeared in Smells Like Team Spirit! as the prize for winning the Hearthome City Tag Battle Competition; due to being a Tag Battle competition, the prize was two Soothe Bells, one for each winner. Ash and Paul won them; however, Paul did not want his, so Ash is in possession of both. Ash's Soothe Bells made an appearance at the start of In The Shadow of Zekrom!, on Ash's desk along with various other gifts and prizes he received in the Sinnoh region.

Virgil used a Soothe Bell in Lost at the League! to calm down a Garbodor and a group of Trubbish.
