In Around the Whirlpool, Ash, Misty, and Brock met Professor Elm, who showed off his Corsola. Seeing it also made Misty want to have one. In A Corsola Caper!, the group met a family who raised Corsola to make jewelry out of their shed body parts. However, a wild Corsola came along and invaded the ranch looking for a friend, causing the Corsola in the area to flee. Eventually, all of the Corsola were recovered and Misty caught the wild Corsola with the Lure Ball she received from Kurt.
Corsola was used shortly after in the Whirl Cup tournament. It was first used in Octillery The Outcast to help a young Trainer by the name of Marcellustrain his Remoraid. Corsola started the battle by countering Remoraid's Water Gun with its Mirror Coat. It then tried for a Tackle attack but Remoraid dived underwater causing Corsola to hit a pillar. Remoraid then fired another Water Gun and knocked Corsola out, which caused it to evolve into an Octillery. Later in the episode it was shown defeating a Seaking, advancing Misty past the preliminary round.
In Dueling Heroes, Corsola was used in Misty's first round battle against Harrison and his Qwilfish. The battle once again started off with a Water Gun being fired at Corsola and it countering the attack with Mirror Coat. Qwilfish swallowed the water to power up its Pin Missile attack. Corsola fired back with Spike Cannon, which caused an explosion with only Corsola taking damage due to Qwilfish hiding underwater. Qwilfish used Take Down and got caught on Corsola's head. Corsola then fired a Spike Cannon, knocking Qwilfish out.
In The Perfect Match!, Corsola was called out in the third round to battle Trinity and her Gyarados, who defeated Poliwhirl earlier. Corsola again started off countering an attack with Mirror Coat, but it backfired this time when Gyarados fired Hyper Beam and overpowered Corsola's attack. Corsola dived under the water and fired Spike Cannon, which knocked Gyarodos out. Trinity next sent out Chinchou. Due to Corsola being tired from the last battle and being confused by Chinchou's Confuse Ray it was quickly defeated, knocking Misty out of the tournament.
In Espeon, Not Included, Corsola was used in a battle against Sakura and her Espeon. The battle started off with a collision of Tackle attacks. Espeon then went in for a Quick Attack. Espeon quickly got the favor of the battle, but Corsola, on the other hand, used Recover and followed up with Spike Cannon, seizing a win for Misty.
In Just Add Water, Corsola was used to challenge Dorian, the Leader of the Coastline Gym. Corsola was initially overwhelmed by Dorian's Mantine using its speed to attack and dodge all of Corsola's moves. Misty had Corsola use Recover, which allowed Corsola to get enough strength to hit Mantine with its Spike Cannon and Tackle, knocking it out.
In The Blue Badge of Courage, Misty used Corsola in her Gym battle against Sakura and her Espeon. Espeon started off with a Tackle that made a direct hit. Corsola hit back with Spike Cannon, which Espeon dodged by jumping into the water. Espeon jumped out with a Swift attack, hitting Corsola hard. Corsola used Recover and then hit Espeon with a Tackle. Espeon jumped off the wall, and dodged the Spike Cannon that Corsola sent at it. Espeon then used Tackle, followed by Psybeam, knocking out Corsola, making Sakura the winner.
Corsola was also used during a battle against Georgio's Delcatty in A Date With Delcatty. The battle started with Delcatty hitting Corsola with Double-Edge, but Corsola countered quickly with a Tackle attack. Then Delcatty used another Double-Edge and proceeded to use Iron Tail while dodging Spike Canon in the process. Delcatty later used Double Team to disorient Corsola, rendering its Spike Canon unsuccessful before using Ice Beam to land another hit. Despite this, Misty was able to turn things around by commanding Corsola to use Recover to heal itself. After that, Corsola used a combination of Spike Canon and Tackle to knock Delcatty out, leaving Misty as the winner of the battle.
Corsola reappeared in Alola, Alola!, when it accompanied Misty to Alola. Corsola was sent out to check out the jewelry on offer in a jewelry shop, but became scared on seeing Corsola branches on sale.
