Three years prior to the events of JN032, Tokio encountered Goh whilst out searching for Celebi in the Ilex Forest. With help from a Sunflora, they searched together for Celebi, only to encounter several wild Pokémon that scared them off. Continuing their search, they came across the Ilex Forest shrine and agreed to meet up there the next day. Unbeknownst to Goh, Tokio fell ill and was unable to make it.
Tokio later reunited with Goh in JN032 alongside his Chikorita.
|Chikorita is Tokio's only known Pokémon.
Chikorita was present with Tokio when he visited the Ilex Forest shrine and was reunited with Goh.
None of Chikorita's moves are known.
