Ruby & Sapphire arc

Phoebe and the other Elite Four members were called by Steven to help protect the Hoenn region from the battle between Groudon and Kyogre. While the other Elite Four are tasked with attempting to open the chambers containing the Legendary Pokémon Regirock, Regice, and Registeel, Phoebe goes to meet with a blind boy that holds a slab that has the secret to awaken the three Pokémon.

After the slab is translated and Steven manages to awaken the Legendary Pokémon, Phoebe is tasked with controlling Regice alongside Glacia. The Elite Four, Steven, and Wallace all control the three legendary giants in three pairs of two and use their power to keep the power released from Groudon and Kyogre's battle from spreading throughout Hoenn. They manage to keep the power contained for several weeks, but the strain is too much for Steven and he eventually dies, causing the three Pokémon to lash out and flee. Phoebe later mourns Steven's death before his revival at the hands of Ruby's Celebi.

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire arc

Phoebe, along with various people from around Hoenn, is called to Sootopolis City to assist in stopping Grand Meteor Delta, a giant meteoroid threatening to destroy the planet. When the plan to attack Grand Meteor Delta starts, Phoebe and the others have their Pokémon attack the meteoroid at the same time. This, combined with the might of Mega Rayquaza, successfully shatters Grand Meteor Delta into pieces.

Dusclops is Phoebe's only known Pokémon. It was first seen with its Trainer when they appeared before Wallace with Steven and the other Elite Four members. Later, it was used to save the Swimmer and blind boy from the crumbling buildings of Slateport City.

Dusclops's only known move is Shadow Punch.
