X & Y chapter
Dexio first appeared in Kangaskhan...Kangascan't. He and Sina were first seen being called by Professor Sycamore to make a copy of the footage of Vaniville Town's destruction so that Lysandre may study it.
In What Does Charmander Do When It Dozes, Dexio and Sina were sent to find Professor Sycamore's missing Charmander, which had escaped from his lab. They found Charmander with X and his friends. Mistaking the children for thieves, Dexio and Sina took Charmander, but were stopped by Tierno, who used his Roller Skates to take Charmander back. After Tierno explained that they were merely returning Charmander to its proper owner, Dexio and Sina excused themselves and left.
In PS586, Dexio and Sina infiltrated Lysandre Café. There, they defeated a disguised Team Flare Grunt and interrogated him for information on Team Flare's whereabouts. After getting what they wanted, Dexio and Sina reported to Professor Sycamore that Team Flare went into hiding at the Pokémon Village.

Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon chapter
In A Photoshoot and the Abandoned Thrifty Megamart, Dexio and Sina arrived on Ula'ula Island. In the five months that passed since they arrived in Alola, the duo managed to gather sixty percent of Zygarde's Cells. Later, they spotted Sun using Stoutland Search and decided to ask him to help find the remaining Cells.
In Confusion and Monsters from Another World, Dexio and Sina infiltrated the Aether House, where they met Sun and requested that he help them find Zygarde's Cells. While he was initially reluctant, Sun agreed after Dexio and Sina offered to pay him a large amount of money for each Cell he found. After receiving a Zygarde Cube to store the Cells in as well as a Mecha Fletchling to keep in touch with Dexio and Sina, Sun set off.
In Darkness!! The Mysterious Claws of Necrozma!, Dexio and Sina introduced Samson Oak to the Reassembly Unit at the Aether Base on Route 16, which they planned to use to control Zygarde's forms. Later, Dexio, Sina, Samson, and Lillie set off to Mount Lanakila to investigate an Ultra Wormhole that appeared above the area. Before they could leave, a large swarm of Zygarde Cells and a Core converged into the Reassembly Unit and emerged as a Complete Forme Zygarde. Shortly afterward, Sun emerged from the wormhole and was rescued by Zygarde. Dexio and the others traveled to Mount Lanakila, where they found an injured Lunala and Lusamine. After Lillie helped free her mother from the Nihilego she was fused with, Lusamine fainted. Sun tried getting Zygarde to take Lusamine to a hospital, only to notice that Necrozma had arrived.
Sun and Samson stayed behind to battle Necrozma while Dexio and Sina took Lillie and Lusamine to a safer place. They tried taking an elevator to the base of the mountain, only for Dexio to be hit by a poison arrow fired by Plumeria, who had disguised herself as Moon. In Regeneration!! The Power of the Sun and the Moon!, both Sina and Dexio's Pokémon were taken out, where it was then up to Lillie to stop Plumeria.
|Espeon is Dexio's only known Pokémon. It was first used to fight the Headmaster Oranguru at the Aether House. At Mount Lanakila, it was taken down by Plumeria's Salazzle.
None of Espeon's moves are known.
