Team Rocket's first attempt to re-capture it on-screen was in [[Virbank City]] in the episode ''[[BW082|An Epic Defense Force!]]''. It was able to elude them but somehow made its way into the [[Pokéstar Studios]] studios where {{Ash}} had unknowingly encountered it. After he saved it from a collapse of some tools it stayed close behind him, and started to follow him, first to the [[Virbank Gym]].

It reappeared in ''[[BW083|Rocking the Virbank Gym! Part 1]]'' and ''[[BW084|Rocking the Virbank Gym! Part 2]]'' where it watched Ash's battle against [[Roxie]] and was visibly pleased to see him win.
After a little bit {{AP|Oshawott}} came out of his [[Poké Ball]] sensing Meloetta's presence and instantly fell in love with it. Meloetta recovered a bit after eating an Oran Berry {{TP|Iris|Emolga}} brought. During this time both Emolga and Oshawott were arguing with each other and Meloetta began to sing in order to calm them down. Afterwards, it disappeared once more but had followed Ash and the others to Cynthia's jet.

In [[BW086|the following episode]], Meloetta appeared once again while [[Jervis]] was taking them to Cynthia's villa. Although it was reluctant to show itself to {{an|Dawn}} at first, it eventually did with encouragement from Ash. Immediately, [[Dawn's Piplup]] fell in love with it too. This angered Oshawott, and caused it and Piplup to constantly fight over Meloetta, and get angry when it chose one over the other. In ''[[BW087|Expedition to Onix Island]]'', it interacted with all of the other Pokémon while at the beach.
==Personality and characteristics==
[[File:Ridley and Meloetta.png|thumb|250px|Meloetta and Ridley]]
Normally, Meloetta is an extremely shy Pokémon and will hide from strangers because of its tragic past. However, it will quickly warm up to someone new and is willing to help them if needed. Though a genderless species in the games, Meloetta displays many feminine traits. It seems to like Ash most of all, at times exhibiting signs of a crush on him, while Oshawott and {{TP|Dawn|Piplup}} like it. While it's timid in its Aria Forme, it becomes a strong battler after transforming into its Pirouette Forme and can take on opponents much larger than it is.
