He was the third opponent Ash faced in the Indigo Plateau Conference. He is a character of the day who appeared in Fire and Ice, where Ash battled Pete on the Ice Field. Pete's Cloyster nearly defeated Ash's Kingler by trying to wear Kingler out by using Withdraw, while Kingler kept whacking Cloyster's hard shell with Crabhammer. However, Kingler's attacks paid off after a while and Cloyster was finally defeated.
Pete then sent out Arcanine. Despite the type disadvantage, Pete's Arcanine easily defeated Kingler by dodging Kingler's Bubble and then using Dragon Rage. Pikachu was then sent into the battlefield. While Pikachu used Agility to confuse Arcanine, Arcanine continued to use Fire Blast, melting the Ice Field, in order to prevent Pikachu from using Agility. Pikachu then dove into the water and shocked Arcanine with Thunderbolt, which channeled through the melted ice, becoming more powerful, thus defeating Arcanine. Because of his loss, Pete was eliminated from the tournament.
He reappeared in a flashback in Friends to the End.
