In Alolan Open House!, they visited Sophocles at the Pokémon School as part of the Visiting Day. They were seen chatting with Delia.

In So Long, Sophocles!, they informed Sophocles that they were moving house. Sophocles feared that this meant moving to another island when in fact they were just moving a few houses away.
