Wilton is found in the Generation II games and their remakes on Route 44, the path between Mahogany Town and the Ice Path. He is one of the many Trainers that the player can register in the Pokégear for a rematch at a later time, and, in Generation II, he will sometimes call the player to notify them of mass outbreaks of Remoraid on Route 44.

In Pokémon Adventures

In Pokémon Adventures, Wilton is Yellow's uncle ("pal" in the VIZ translation.) He was the one who taught Yellow how to fish, and gave Yellow her second Pokémon, Dody.

Wilton first appeared in Just a Spearow Carrier in Indigo Plateau when Green attempted to pull a trick on him, by having her Nidoran♀ court his Nidoran♂ and encourage a trade of her Weedle for his Butterfree.

In Teddiursa's Picnic on Route 32, where he met Gold, who asked if he had seen a Poké Ball containing a Poliwag. Wilton informed Gold that a thief had been stealing Pokémon right out of local Trainers’ hands – in fact, as he was telling Gold this, his Octillery’s Poké Ball was snatched! Gold used his billiards cue to hit the thief in the jaw with a Poké Ball, causing it to fall into the water, and revealing that it was in fact a Granbull. They realized that it had been stealing all the Poké Balls for attention, in order to get help for its jaw, which had conveniently been fixed by Gold’s shot. After it gave them back the Poké Balls it had stolen (including Polibo’s), Wilton gave Gold his Pokégear number. Gold then left, and Wilton compared Yellow’s fishing skills to Gold’s skill with billiards.

Later, in Tyranitar War, he went to Viridian City and told Yellow to go to Johto. Some time after that, in Hello, Lickitung, he meets Crystal after Yellow finds her in Olivine City. He takes the two girls to the Whirl Islands soon after. It is here that they encounter Lugia and fight it. A while later, it was revealed that he, along with Yellow, had gone to Ecruteak City weeks beforehand, where she lifted the curse that was on the Legendary Beasts. When Team Rocket attacked the Pokémon Day Care on Route 34, he defended the old couple that owned it and all the Pokémon there. It is also there that he learns of the relation between Agatha, Professor Oak, the Day-Care Couple, Kurt and Pryce.
