Professor Sebastian was the mastermind behind Team Rocket's scheme, Project R. He had designed the Evolution-Inducement Wave which causes one of Lake of Rage Magikarp to evolve into a Red Gyarados. He succeeded in capturing the rare specimen for further study in Talkin' 'Bout an Evolution. Professor Sebastian later transported the Red Gyarados to a secret meeting point near Mahogany Town in Rage of Innocence. While he left aboard a helicopter without any disruptions, Project R was later foiled. His main support, Tyson, was intercepted by Lance and arrested by Officer Jenny. The Red Gyarados was later captured by Lance.
Professor Sebastian is a calculated individual who often speaks in a steady even tone. He is particularly cold towards Pokémon and believes that they should serve humanity. Sebastian only values Pokémon as tools and specimens of study. He invests his knowledge into creating weaponry and operates alongside high-ranking individuals like Attila and Hun to achieve his utilitarian ideal.
