  • Before battle
"Hello! Welcome to the Pokémon League! I'm Aaron of the Elite Four. It's good to meet you. Oh, I should explain, I'm a huge fan of bug Pokémon. Bug Pokémon are nasty-mean, and yet they're beautiful, too... Would you like to know why I take on challengers here, in this room? It's because I want to become perfect, just like my bug Pokémon! Ok! Let me take you on!"
  • When last Pokémon is at critical health
"Not yet! Your first Pokémon League victory doesn't come easily, kid."DP
"It's not over yet! A League Elite Four can't give up!"Pt
  • When defeated
"I will now concede defeat. But I think you came to see how great Bug-type Pokémon can be. I hope you also realized why you're up against in the Pokémon League. Battling is a deep and complex affair..."
  • After battle
"I lost with the most beautiful and toughest of the bug Pokémon... We lost because I wasn't good enough... That's it! Back to training camp! Let's hear it for me! No... That was wrong... Anyway... Go on to the next room! Three Trainers are waiting for you. They are all tougher than me."
"Go on, go to the next room. I'm going to become a top-level Trainer who can't be outclassed with my beautiful and tough bug Pokémon!"

Aaron in the anime

Aaron was briefly mentioned by Lucian in An Elite Meet and Greet. However, Aaron made his actual debut appearance in A Trainer and Child Reunion! where he was shown to be preparing for his championship battle against Cynthia. Finding out that Ash and his friends know Cynthia personally, he took them to his training center.

There, he revealed that a Wurmple was his first ever Pokémon and friend when he was young but due to his anger at it for losing a match, he abandoned it. He regretted it later and from then on tried his best to train hard and to understand Bug-type Pokémon so that the same incident would not happen again. He eventually encountered it again as a Beautifly at the end of the episode, following a battle against Team Rocket.

He was seen again on television, one episode later, having his battle with Cynthia. It was also shown that he had lost the match.

This listing is of Aaron's known Pokémon in the anime:

Aaron's Beautifly
Wurmple → Silcoon → Beautifly
Main article: Aaron's Beautifly

Aaron first encountered his Beautifly as a Wurmple when it helped him down from a high tree. They became very close friends, but finally Aaron became irritated that it always lost and left it behind. When he later returned to the place where they had seen for the last time, Wurmple was gone.

The same Wurmple returned in A Trainer and Child Reunion!, now having evolved into a Beautifly. The meeting place was just besides the very same tree where they had first met. It told how after Aaron had abandoned it, it had started training by itself. Beautifly helped Ash and company along with Aaron to get rid of Team Rocket that had tried to steal Aaron's Pokémon. After this Aaron took Beautifly back to his team.

Aaron used Beautifly again in the next episode in his battle against Cynthia as his last Pokémon, sending it against Cynthia's Gastrodon. However, Beautifly was finally knocked out by Gastrodon's powerful Stone Edge.
