History

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

Tyson first appeared in Like A Meowth to Flame! of the Ever Grande Conference arc. He rescued Ash and his friends from a flock of Murkrow with his Meowth. They quickly became friends as it turns out they were going to the same place to eat and because Tyson has a certain fondness for food like May. The group met up with him interacting with Mr. Goodshow, where he found out that Ash and Brock were also torch-runners in the past. Later, an "Officer Jenny" and "Nurse Joy" (Team Rocket in disguise) went up to Tyson and ran off with the torch of Moltres. He warned Ash and the gang that they ran off with the torch and chased after them. Tyson stopped their balloon by having his Metagross use Confusion. His Meowth successfully took the torch from the talking one and finished the villains with Thunderbolt.

In Saved By The Beldum!, he came to Ash's and Morrison's rescue from Team Rocket's pit traps. Once again, his Meowth sent them away but this time, with an Iron Tail. In that same episode, he battled Vivica and her Persian in the first round of the Ever Grande Conference. Tyson sent out Meowth and ended up winning the round, only for him to restrain Meowth from attacking any further.

In Shocks and Bonds, Tyson went up against Johnny with Sceptile and Aggron remaining as Donphan and Blastoise were already knocked out by the time Ash and company arrived to watch his battle. Tyson was able to defeat Johnny when Sceptile successfully used Solar Beam on Aggron.

He then watched the six-on-six battle between Ash and his opponent, Katie.

Tyson defeated his opponent's Rhydon with Meowth in A Judgment Brawl after Ash defeated Katie.

He battled Ash in Choose It or Lose It! and At The End of the Fray!. Tyson was a very tough foe for Ash as both sides were down to their last Pokémon, Pikachu and Meowth respectively. After a long battle, both sides were having trouble standing up. However, Meowth emerged victorious when it was the only one standing. Tyson congratulated Ash for a good battle. Tyson then went on to the finals and ended up winning the Hoenn League, having the chance to battle the Hoenn Elite Four.

After the Ever Grande Conference he said goodbye to Ash and his friends as he left Ever Grande City.
