Burkhart is first introduced at the Wireless Tower on Renbow Island, where he is shocked by electricity. He offers to charge the player's Capture Styler but Rand intervenes, due to it being unsafe as well as voiding the warranty. However, the player can still speak to him afterwards to recharge the Styler. Later, he tips off the player to the Pinchers' takeover of the abandoned warehouse on Hinder Cape. He is in charge of the repairs to the tower after Raikou destroyed it during the Pokémon Pinchers' takeover.
