He reappeared in Curtain Up, Unova League! to compete in the Vertress Conference. In Mission: Defeat Your Rival! he appeared on the screen showing the match-ups for the second round of the Conference, meaning he had made it through the first round. In Lost at the League! he appeared once again on the screen of the Vertress Conference, now showing the match-ups for the last sixteen, meaning he had made it through the second and third rounds. In the fourth round he battled against Cameron and used his Gigalith to battle against Cameron's Riolu. Cameron won and Kenton was eliminated from the tournament, placing him in the Top 16. In A Unova League Evolution! he appeared once again in the closing ceremonies of the Vertress Conference.
