Abel first appeared when Goh sent out his newly caught Shiny Voltorb. Because of its blue color, Abel grabbed hold of it, only for Voltorb to use Self-Destruct. After introducing himself to Ash, Goh, and Chloe, he took them to an art gallery which showed pictures of many blue-colored Pokémon. Whilst there, Abel encountered Blutus, who shared his fascination which started a rivalry between them. Abel took them to a café which had a theme of blue-colored food, which led to another encountered with Blutus. Whilst arguing, Abel received an alert of a Frogadier/Vanillite plushie available at the Poké Mart and went to get it, only to get into a fight with Blutus which ended with it being torn apart.
To settle this, Abel and Blutus blindfolded themselves and sent out two of their Pokémon to see if they can identify each other's Pokémon. Team Rocket interrupted this by capturing Pikachu, Grookey, and Eevee but Abel saved them by having his Dewott break the net with its Scalchop. When Team Rocket requested the Rocket Prize Master, Abel and Blutus ended up scaring Pelipper away. Abel received another notification on his phone and ran away with Blutus.
