Pod appears in BW005 alongside fellow Gym Leaders Dent and Corn. He makes his first appearance with Corn serving Ash. Ash declines saying he wants to battle the Gym Leader and the three brothers introduce themselves. They followed Ash to the battleground where they revealed their Pokémon.

Pod is the first to be battled by Ash and loses. He is set to appear in BW006.


This listing is of Pod's known Pokémon in the anime.

Pod's Baoppu
Baoppu is Pod's only known Pokémon. It first appeared when Pod showed what Pokémon he has and Ash scans it on his Pokédex. It is the first Pokémon Ash battled in his gym battle. Pokabu's attacks didn't do much damage to Baoppu, but Baoppu hit Pokabu hard with Fire Punch, Flamethrower and Dig. One of Baoppu's Dig attacks knocked Pokabu into the air. But Ash commanded it to use Tackle into the hole that Baoppu was in and it managed to bite down on Baoppu's tail. Pokabu then spun Baoppu around and threw it on the ground, used Ember successfully, and then knocked it out with powerful Tackle.

Baoppu's known moves are Flamethrower, Fire Punch, and Dig.
