In There's a New Kid in Town!, it was revealed that Ren had been helping Professor Cerise since he was a student, trying to do research on Yamper. However, Chloe disapproved of this and was always angry with him. Because of that, Ren always tried to research Yamper during times when Chloe was not around.
In the past, Ren met a Magnemite who lived in an old fashioned restaurant that he frequented, as time went on the restaurant was forced to close. This made Ren decide to adopt the Magnemite, who at first was reluctant and run away. Ren then went in search of the Pokémon and, after much searching, he found it next to several lamps that were thrown in the trash. Ren decided to nickname the Magnemite "Francois" after the cafe they met on. Subsequently, he tried making it as comfortable as possible, starting with an old lamp that Ren had at home and that Francois felt an affinity for.
Ren debuted in Legend? Go! Friends? Go!, where he attended the opening of Cerise Laboratory. He later saw Professor Oak and Delia off as they returned to Pallet Town. In Ivysaur's Mysterious Tower!, he apologized for being late due to a traffic jam caused by a mass outbreak of Ivysaur.
In It's All in the Name!, following a magnetic storm, multiple Magnemite went crazy in the Vermilion City area, forcing Ren to protect Francois from the influence that had driven them to behave unnaturally until it was ended.
He also seems to be afraid of paranormal activities and ghosts, including Gengar. Moreover, he believed Goh's claims regarding Gengar's curse. In How Are You Gonna Keep 'Em Off of the Farm?, it's revealed that he has been uncomfortable with such activities from the time when he was Cerise's student along with Laxton.
Ren is seen to be a considerate and dedicated Trainer to his Magnemite, going to great lengths to ensure its safety while endangering himself in the process. He is seen to be very patient and accommodating to Francois and its peculiar habits, doing his utmost to make sure it is comfortable.
