Sometime after Colress took control of Rhoder's Haxorus, Rhoder ran to where Haxorus was and tried convincing it to stop by explaining that it was destroying the city. Unfortunately, this did not shake Haxorus from Colress's machinations, and it continued its destructive purposes. Rhoder bumped into Ash and his friends, and introduced himself as Haxorus's Trainer. He then explained that Haxorus was normally calm and friendly. Ever since then, it would not listen to Rhoder. Iris tried resolving the situation by having Dragonite use Ice Beam but was unsuccessful and Dragonite too became controlled by Colress.
Rhoder watched on as his Haxorus and Iris's Dragonite were destroying the city. After a Shadow Ball coming from Aldith's Liepard went astray, Haxorus reverted back to its normal docility and Rhoder recalled it back into its Poké Ball. Suddenly, a fog appeared, surrounding Ash and his friends, and Rhoder walked off, surprised that the group disappeared.

Haxorus first appeared possessed by Colress's machines and was on a rampage in a city. Rhoder arrived and explained to the group that the Haxorus was his. Prior to the rampage, Rhoder explained that Haxorus was calm and friendly. Due to its destructive state, Haxorus did not listen to a word Rhoder said. Iris tried battling it with her Dragonite, but Dragonite became possessed by Colress's machines in result. With both Pokémon possessed, Haxorus took on Cilan's Crustle while Dragonite battled with Charizard. After one of the machines was destroyed by Aldith's Liepard's Shadow Ball, Haxorus went back to normal and was reunited with its Trainer.
