The Subway Bosses in the anime

At the end of Beheeyem, Duosion, and the Dream Thief! Emmet and Ingo made their debut appearances where they detected Team Rocket's tampering with the track switches. In The Beartic Mountain Feud! the pair went in search of what or who was causing these disturbances and they caught a glimpse of two figures—Jessie and James—before they disappeared into the shadows.

In Crisis from the Underground Up! and Battle for the Underground!, the two met Ash, Cilan, and Iris as the subway they were riding had stopped. After Pokémon had been stolen from the Pokémon Center, Emmet and Ingo teamed up with the trio to stop Team Rocket and retrieve all the stolen Pokémon.

They reappeared in Lost at the Stamp Rally!, where they helped Erina locate her lost Axew as a favor for Cilan. They rewarded his and Ash's good deed by having a Tag Battle against them, who were using Pansage and Tepig respectively. Despite Ash and Cilan pushing their hardest, they were finally defeated as Ingo's Chandelure stopped the two Pokémon with Psychic, so Emmet's Eelektross was able to knock them out with a Thunderbolt.

The Subway Bosses in Pokémon Adventures

Emmet and Ingo are first seen walking around Gear Station. Later, they are introduced as the Subway Bosses of the newly created Battle Subway to Black and White. According to the Mayor of Nimbasa City, they were recruited by him because of their strength.

Later, when White is invited to take part in the Battle Subway, she boards the train with the Subway Bosses in order to get stronger. Because of their odd, almost robotic behavior, White seems to be afraid of them. It is apparent the Emmet loves battling and is seen eagerly asking White to quickly win 20 consecutive battles while running towards her, obviously scaring her half to death. Emmet was quickly apprehended by Ingo.

White's Servine later fights Ingo's Klinklang while Emmet referees the match. The match ends in a draw, much to Ingo's disappointment. Later, when White meets Bianca, Emmet begins to invade their privacy, only to be pushed away by both White and Ingo.
