Everett saw Ash on television being interviewed by Malva at the Lumiose Conference and planned on challenging him to a battle. He found Ash and asked him for a battle. Ash accepted, but Serena and Clemont stopped the battle before it could start, as Ash could end up missing the registration deadline as a result.
Later, Everett came across Ash in a hallway in the Conference's stadium and the two battled. Everett sent out his Furfrou and Ash chose his Pikachu. After a couple of attacks from both Pokémon, Ash won the match. Afterwards, Everett fell to his knees and started crying, saying he didn't have eight GymBadges and therefore couldn't take part in the League; Ash consoled him. This battle caused Ash to be late for his first battle in the Conference, which he realized. Later, Everett was seen sitting against one of the walls in the same hallway and smiling. At the end of the episode, Everett was seen watching the scoreboard before he left.
