In the games
Professor Cozmo leaves either with Team MagmaREOR or Team AquaSAS for the Meteor Falls, thinking that they are going to help him excavate meteors. However, the offending team steals the Meteorite, intending to use it to power their machine at Mt. Chimney. After defeating the Grunts and the team's leaderRSE, the player can take the Meteorite from the machine and return it to the Professor in exchange for TM27 (Return)RSE.
In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version's first scenario, Takao appears in Mossdeep Space Center asking for Orlando and Steven's help.
In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire proper, notes in Sea Mauville reveal that Takao's father, Raizoh, was a researcher for Greater Mauville Holdings and the Devon Corporation who spent nearly all his time working, apparently causing his marriage to unravel. One of the few things Raizoh had to remind him of his son was a Hi Skitty doll the latter had sent to Sea Mauville. The retrieval of that doll proves to be the object of the Sea Mauville sidequest. Takao used to live in Rustboro, but at some time moved, possibly to Fallarbor. The letters also mention that Takao's father had once given him a Shelgon, but once it evolved into Salamence Takao was disappointed that it no longer looked like a Meteorite and traded it for a friend's Solrock. He also received a telescope from his father.

In the anime
Professor Cozmo appeared in Fight for the Meteorite!, where Ash met him at Mt. Chimney. Similar to the games, Team Magma was trying to get their hands on the Meteorite he had just found there, eventually succeeding in doing so. The Meteorite was placed inside of a machine in an attempt to make the volcano erupt. As Ash was unable to break the Meteorite's container, Professor Cozmo decided to push the whole machine down into the crater instead, choosing to rather lose the Meteorite than let the villainous team possess it. Afterwards, he guided Ash and his friends to take the Jagged Pass down to Lavaridge Town, wishing Ash good luck in his upcoming Gym battle at the Lavaridge Gym.

Professor Cozmo briefly appeared in The Scoop.
In the manga
Ash & Pikachu
Cozmo is apparently good friends with Roxanne and was once her teacher.
Professor Cozmo believed Team Aqua to be noble heroes, so he assisted them with the Meteorite and their device on Mt. Chimney. He was taken hostage by Team Aqua and was locked inside their headquarters shortly after their mission succeeded, and only rescued by Winona and Flannery deep in the crisis. Winona took him to the Pokémon Association airship where he was reunited with his three aides.
It is revealed in a flashback that Cozmo found the meteor that fell from the sky which was later a part of Team Aqua's plan. He also discovered two life forms on the meteor, and passed them to Mossdeep Space Center where they were later stolen.
He and his three aides confirm the imminent apocalypse of the planet in ten days by a giant meteor, and later help out at the Mossdeep Space Center awaiting the Dimensional Shifter developed by Devon Corporation. Sapphire, after somehow ending up inside the rocket on standby at the Mossdeep Space Center, manages to find her way out of it and hands the Dimensional Shifter, which she stole from Zinnia, to Cozmo, which he examines to be fully charged. He notifies the Stones, Joseph and Steven, of the successful delivery, and also the media's knowledge of the meteor's imminent collision with the planet, causing Joseph and Steven to rush back to Mossdeep from Sea Mauville.
