In the anime
Spenser appeared in the episodes Cutting the Ties that Bind and Ka Boom with a View. He is a kind old man who specialises in herbal medicines. While he usually rides on his Venusaur, he has a lot of stamina which is shown in battle. Spenser uses the whole of the island he lives on as a battlefield and so battles have an emphasis on nature and include a lot of running around.
Spenser used a Venusaur, Shiftry and Claydol in his battle against Ash Ketchum. He also has a Chansey, which he used to heal Ash's Sceptile.
In the Pokemon Special manga
Spenser fought alongside Lucy during the press show-off of the Battle Frontier during its grand opening. He fought using a Crobat, which uses Poison Fang. He witnessed the battle between Noland and Emerald. He also explains to Lucy that holding back your feelings contradicts the essence of the spirit.
