Ramos debuted in Thawing an Icy Panic!. He first appeared with his Gogoat, after Clemont accidentally broke the fence to his Grass-type ranch. After an angry Vanillish and Vanilluxe created a snowstorm after hearing Vanillite's wail, as it was captured by Team Rocket, Ramos searched Coumarine City for the cause. After Gogoat rescued Ash from Vanillish and Vanilluxe, he used his Jumpluff's Sunny Day to stop the snowstorm and then had multiple Sunflora use Solar Beam to destroy the snow. Then, Vanillish and Vanilluxe, as well as Vanillite, were captured by Team Rocket's mecha mecha. As a result, Ramos used his Gogoat to destroy the mecha, assisted by Ash and his friends' Pokémon. Afterwards, Ash and his friends' Pokémon sent Team Rocket blasting off, and the three captured Pokémon were rescued and went off happily. Later, Ramos went back to the Coumarine Gym, and Clemont correctly deduced that he was the Gym Leader.
Ramos enjoys a steady-paced life and he is often seen riding his faithful Gogoat. Ramos runs a Pokémon ranch on the outskirts of Coumarine City, where he raises and studies Grass Pokémon. In his debut, Ramos lectured Ash on the importance of not only facing challenges head-on, but sometimes taking the "side road" as well. He demonstrated this by using Jumpluff and Sunflora to melt the snow rather than attack Vanillish and Vanilluxe, and later by using Gogoat's attacks to immobilize Team Rocket's machine rather than trying to immediately destroy it. In The Green, Green Grass Types of Home!, Ramos relied on overpowering attacks and his team's defenses in his Gym battle against Ash, though he ultimately lost.

Gogoat was also the last Pokémon Ramos used during Ash's Coumarine Gym battle, sending it out to face Ash's Frogadier. During the battle, Gogoat demonstrated its strong Grass-type attacks, which were almost enough to defeat Frogadier, until Ash recalled a lesson Ramos had taught him about gardening, and used it to come up with a winning strategy, allowing Frogadier to eventually defeat Gogoat with a Water Pulse.
Jumpluff was also the first Pokémon Ramos used during his Gym battle with Ash, sending it out to face Ash's Fletchinder. Even though it was able to boost its Defense and Speed to withstand and avoid Fletchinder's attacks, the Ember Pokémon managed to boost its Speed with Flame Charge so that it was finally able to reach Jumpluff and defeat it.
Ramos holds several Victreebel at his ranch. After Clemont accidentally broke through the fence of Ramos's ranch and his invention exploded, the Victreebel got scared and started attacking Clemont. Ramos came in with his Gogoat and calmed the Victreebel down.
Ramos debuted in Pyroar Breathes. He, the other Kalos Gym Leaders, Y, Trevor, Tierno, and Shauna traveled to Geosenge Town to confront Team Flare. Shortly after they arrived, the group witnessed the ultimate weapon emerging from underground like a flower bud. To prevent the weapon from blooming, the Gym Leaders and Y used their bodies to keep the petals in place by force, but were met with interference by Bryony.
The ultimate weapon eventually fired anyway, but the combined efforts of the Gym Leaders and their allies successfully weakened the weapon enough to make it unable to take any innocent lives. Using her newly-obtained Xerneas, Xerxer, Y tried to destroy the ultimate weapon, but was interrupted by Malva and her Yveltal. Due to Xerneas and Yveltal being evenly matched, Xerosic announced that Lysandre ordered a ceasefire. Xerxer confirmed this and retreated, taking Y and the others with it.
In Pinsir Glares, Ramos met with X and his friends at the Lost Hotel. He revealed that Team Flare blamed the destruction caused by the ultimate weapon on the Gym Leaders and the Vaniville children. X and his friends were advised to keep out of the public's eye while the Gym Leaders helped rebuild the damaged areas. In Xerneas Gives, Ramos, Grant, Valerie, Olympia, and Wulfric helped stop Team Flare's attempt to reactivate the ultimate weapon by defeating a group of Grunts that were stationed around Cyllage City. After Team Flare was fully defeated, Ramos and his allies met with X and his friends at Lumiose City to congratulate them on their victory.
Ramos claims to have 50 years of gardening experience. He has also read a Pokémon battling encyclopedia and thus managed a brief conversation with Bryony when she mentions the page numbers documenting Mr. Mime's air-solidifying tactic.
