Yuzo and his peers with Professor Rowan

Yuzo debuted in Following A Maiden's Voyage!. He was taking care of the Pokémon at the lab in Sandgem Town while Rowan was out, when a fight broke out between the Piplup and the Chimchar reserved for a beginning Trainer. Things became even more disorganized after a Staraptor was accidentally attacked and it began to use Whirlwind inside the lab. Yuzo began to worry what Professor Rowan would say. He was going to attempt to clean the lab up when Rowan returned with the new Trainer, Dawn.

Yuzo appeared from Camping It Up! to One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team! as one of the teachers at Professor Rowan's Pokémon Summer Academy. His duties included handing everyone their rental Pokémon and refereeing several events, including the Pokémon Triathlon.

His latest appearance was in SS024, where he was seen outside Professor Rowan's lab studying a Shinx. He was then seen bidding farewell to Dawn on her journey to Hoenn.

It was revealed that the first Pokémon he caught was a Starly, and his sister's was a Bidoof.
