Virizion is one of the major characters in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity.
When Virizion comes to Post Town, she catches the many eyes of the town's citizens before stopping at Swanna's inn with the majority of the townsfolk following her. It is revealed that Virizion came to Post Town after hearing stories of the Rainbows of Hope, but discovered that they no longer appear.
The player and their partner help Dunsparce, who has fallen in love with Virizion, in asking the Grassland Pokemon if she could be his friend after presenting her with a crystal gem. However she coldly rejects his friendship, and proceeds to explain to the distraught Dunsparce that she doesn't believe in friends, especially with the world they live in that is filled with distrustful Pokemon. It's even said that it's a town tradition to be rejected by Virizion. If Dunsparce was strong, then he would be considered an ally to Virizion, but she could tell that Dunsparce wasn't very strong. This greatly upsets Dunsparce, who runs off in tears, but Virizion defended her actions to the player and their partner that the world they live in is filled with deceitful Pokemon, and that making friends would only lead to disappointment and heartache.
When Dunsparce ran off with the Pawniard Brothers to become strong for Virizion, the Grassland Pokemon overheard the player and the partner going to Desolate Canyon to save Dunsparce from danger. She went to Gurdurr and asked for his assistance to save Dunsparce, but not before Gurdurr told Virizion that he too had lost faith in the world, but the player and their partner helped him realize that the world isn't worth giving up just yet. At Desolate Canyon, Virizion, along with Gurdurr and the two Timburr, aided the player and their allies against the Pawniard Brothers and their gang, succeeding in driving them off.
After the battle, Virizion apologized for her behavior towards Dunsparce. She then listened to the player and their partner explaining about building a Pokemon Paradise after they accepted Dunsparce and Emolga, and Virizion requested if she could join Paradise as well, much to everyone's surprise. Despite Emolga's intense opposition to Virizion joining due to her previous mistreatment of Dunsparce, the partner accepts Virizion as part of their Pokemon Paradise. The Grassland Pokemon had thoughts of leaving Post Town, but she decided to stay and believes that she may find the precious thing she has been searching for while residing in the Pokemon Paradise...
