A pair of Soothe Bells appeared in Tag! We're It...! as the prize promised for the winners of the Hearthome City Tag Battle Competition, one for each member of the winning pair of Trainers. In Smells Like Team Spirit!, the competition ended in Ash and Paul's victory, earning each of them one of the Soothe Bells. However, Paul did not want his, so he gave it to Ash instead. Ash's Soothe Bells briefly reappeared at the start of In The Shadow of Zekrom!, where they were seen on Ash's desk, along with various other gifts and prizes he had received during his journey in the Sinnoh region.

Virgil used a Soothe Bell in Lost at the League! to calm down a Garbodor and a group of Trubbish.
