Professor Sycamore made his first appearance in ''[[XY002|Lumiose City Pursuit!]]'', when {{Ash}}, {{an|Clemont}} and {{an|Bonnie}} brought an injured {{AP|Froakie}} to him. Sycamore treated Froakie while explaining that he used to be owned by Trainers but had severe behavioral problems which caused him to either abandon or be abandoned by his past Trainers. Sycamore also explained that his area of research was [[Mega Evolution]], and {{p|Garchomp}} was the Pokémon he was researching since she was capable of achieving it.
After {{TRT}}'s failed attempt to steal Froakie caused Garchomp to go wild, Professor Sycamore joined Ash in his attempt to calm her down but was forced to simply watch from the bottom of [[Lumiose Gym|Prism Tower]]. After the situation had been resolved, he thanked Ash by giving him a new Kalos Pokédex and allowing him to take Froakie, who had bonded with the Trainer, with him.
He reappeared in ''[[XY068|Garchomp's Mega Bond!]]'' when Ash and his friends visit him before leaving [[Lumiose City]]. He showed the group a special machine that could determine which Pokémon could Mega Evolve with a certain Mega Stone, and found out the Mega Stone was Garchompite. However, Team Rocket stole the Garchompite, along with a Key Stone and the professor's Garchomp. But before they successfully Mega Evolve Garchomp, Professor Sycamore Mega Evolves his Garchomp for the first time with the help of [[Meyer|Blaziken Mask]].
He appeared again in ''[[XY079XY080|Performing with Fiery Charm!]]'' where he watched Serena competing in the [[Dendemille Town]] [[Pokémon Showcase]] along with his lab assistants [[Sophie]] and [[Cosette]].
He reappeared in ''[[XY092|Cloudy Fate, Bright Future!]]'' where he arrived in [[Anistar City]] to research the origins of the mysterious Anistar Sundial which is said to have a connection with Mega Evolution. He was interrupted by [[Carrie (XY092)|Carrie]], who mistakenly accuses Sycamore of the looming crisis [[Olympia]] predicted. In the [[XY093|next episode]], Professor Sycamore watched Ash's Gym Battle against Olympia. After Ash's win, he discussed with Olympia about her visions of the future.
|epname=Lumiose City Pursuit!
|desc=Professor Sycamore's only known Pokémon is a {{p|Garchomp}} who lives at the lab with him as the main test subject as he researches Mega Evolution. When it was still a {{p|Gible}}, it rampaged through [[Lumiose City]], only to be stopped by Sycamore's assistant [[Alain]]. Alain took her to Sycamore's laboratory, where she then came to live. She gradually started to trust Sycamore and the other Pokémon at the lab, and after some time evolved into a {{p|Gabite}} and finally into Garchomp.
Despite her fearsome appearance, Garchomp is very gentle as shown by her concern for Froakie. She also enjoys company, and happily allows others to pet her. However, when Team Rocket attempted to capture Froakie, Garchomp defended it from Team Rocket's device which then attached itself to her. This caused her severe pain resulting in her going on a rampage through Lumiose City and heading to the top of Prism Tower.
Sycamore debuts in person at his lab in Lumiose City, where he shows the footage Trevor recorded to Lysandre. Sycamore also gives a copy of the footage so that it may be used for further study.
Later, Trevor and his friends make it to Lumiose City. There, they meet with Professor Sycamore and return the {{p|Charmander}} that had previously escaped from Sycamore's lab. Trevor, {{adv|Y}}, [[Tierno]], and [[Shauna]] are sent to Lysandre Café to have Trevor's Holo Caster fixed while {{adv|X}} stays behind. When X reveals that he doesn't want to take the {{p|Chespin}} that Trevor got for him because he worries that it will only get caught up in the constant attacks from [[Team Flare]], Professor Sycamore decides to challenge him to a battle in hopes of changing his mind. Although X agrees, he is angered when he is forced to use Chespin instead of [[Kanga and Li'l Kanga|Kanga]]. The battle ends with Professor Sycamore as the victor. Despite the lack of interest in the fight, X is impressed by Chespin's valor enough to take it on his team and give it a nickname. Much to Professor Sycamore's surprise and confusion, X also takes an interest in training the Charmander.
Afterward, the two head off to the Prism Tower while riding the Gogoat Shuttle service. When X's friends ask Sycamore about Lysandre's scary demeanor, Sycamore laughs their worries off and assumes they were just shocked from his majestic personality. He then heads inside Prism Tower to have an interview with Lumiose Press.
