In Exploud and Clear, Guy was first seen chasing down his rampaging Loudred. Once he managed to calm his Pokémon down, he and Ash decided to have a battle. Ash chose to battle Loudred with his Treecko. During the battle, both Pokémon ended up evolving. However, after Loudred's evolution into an Exploud, it stopped listening to Guy. Exploud ran off, shoving Guy aside in the process. Ash told his newly evolved Grovyle to run after it.
Team Rocket took notice of the Exploud on a rock near a waterfall and tried to capture it during its battle with Grovyle. When Guy noticed Team Rocket, he hurled himself in front of their cork gun to prevent the projectiles from reaching Exploud. Although it took an attack from Pikachu to stop the corks entirely, Exploud noticed its Trainer's care and compassion for it and started obeying Guy. After Team Rocket was sent blasting off, Ash and Guy resumed their battle. The outcome of the battle remains unknown.

| Exploud is Guy's main partner and only known Pokémon; it was his prized partner even when it was just a Whismur. Whismur is seen only in flashbacks and evolved into Loudred sometime prior to Exploud and Clear. However, upon evolution, Loudred started to go wild and disobey Guy.
In battle, both Ash's Treecko and Guy's Loudred evolved into Grovyle and Exploud, respectively. After evolving a second time, Exploud continued to disobey Guy and it was up to Ash and his friends to help Exploud bond with Guy again. After helping to stop a Team Rocket heist, Exploud smiled at Guy, showing its friendliness towards its Trainer, and began obeying him again. After reuniting with Guy, Exploud continued the battle with Ash's Grovyle but without a clear winner.
