A resident of Verdanturf Town, Tommy was saddened to see his wife constantly yell at their son for training Pokémon and entering Contests. She wanted him to study all the time and to not have fun with them. Tommy knew this was because his wife had her Poochyena taken away from her when she was a little girl because her parents forbade her from playing with Pokémon.
Tommy did not want his son to end up like that, so he told Timmy that he could enter Pokémon Contests. Timmy followed his dad's advice, and went disguised as "The Phantom." When Mrs. Grimm learned about what was happening, she was furious. However, Tommy was able to calm her down and show her that training Pokémon is what Timmy was born to do.
Realizing her mistake, Mrs. Grimm apologized to Timmy, and both parents began supporting Timmy in his pursuit to become a top Coordinator.
| Tommy Grimm was seeing using a Dusclops in a flashback as "The Phantom." However, it is unknown what happened to it after he stopped being The Phantom.
None of Dusclops's moves are known.
