History

Captain Aidan debuted in The Pokémon Water War. He drove onto the scene of a warehouse fire and had Team Wartortle put it out. He noticed Ash and his friends' efforts to help out and invited them over to the fire station for some training. Ash's Squirtle quickly developed a rivalry with the leader of Team Wartortle, and went on to compete against them in a series of training exercises. Team Rocket later stole Squirtle, Pikachu, and Team Wartortle just as an apartment complex fire broke out. Misty left on foot to fight the fire while Tracey's Venonat led Captain Aidan and the others to Team Rocket's cabin hideout. Captain Aidan and Ash were able to recover the stolen Pokemon and send Team Rocket flying before rushing over to the apartment and putting the fire out.

In The Fire-ing Squad!, Captain Aidan traveled to Johto with Team Wartortle to compete in the Fire and Rescue Grand Prix. He and Team Wartortle were the defending champions, and Aidan also managed to convince the event management team to allow Ash to enter on short notice. he and his team made it all the way to the finals again, only to be defeated by Officer Jenny and the Squirtle Squad, with help of the Squad's former leader, Ash's own Squirtle.
