Parker first appeared in Best Friend...Worst Nightmare!, where he tried to wake Chloe up for school. He then had breakfast together with his family before seeing his sister and father off as they drove to Chloe's school.
In Dreams Are Made of These!, Parker was among those who attended the Pokémon Orienteering competition at Cerise Laboratory. Alongside his sister, Parker followed Goh around Vermilion City and watched as he caught several Pokémon before meeting up with his father and the others.
In JN029, Yamper brought home an injured Pidove. After Parker helped it recover, he was sad to see Pidove leave when its Trainer came to pick it up. However, his sister comforted him and told him that Pidove's place was with its Trainer. In the end, Parker decided to say goodbye to Pidove next to his family.
In JN031, Parker asked Chloe, Goh, and Ash to help him and his friend Nami train her Feebas. Later, the group traveled to Hoenn to follow Nami's performance at the Water-type Pokémon Friendship Contest.
In contrast to his sister, Parker is more open and friendly to Pokémon, even trying to create a friendship between Yamper and an injured Pidove. During the competition in Dreams Are Made of These!, Parker was one of the children most impressed with Goh's skills, which motivated him to want to know more about Pokémon.
