Wulfric appears in [[Pokémon X and Y]] as a Gym Leader. Trainers who defeat Wulfric will receive the {{badge|Iceberg}}, along with {{TM|13|Ice Beam}}. He is said not just to be a strong Gym Leader but also very kind to Pokémon, which is why Pokémon, such as those in Pokémon Village, admire him.<ref>http://www.pokemonxy.com/en-au/characters/gym_leaders/</ref>
 
Initially, Wulfric is not at the Snowbelle Gym, instead being said to be at the {{rt|20|Kalos|Winding Woods}}. Indeed, Wulfric is found at the [[Pokémon Village]], a location west of the woods, where he explains the place to the {{player}}. From there, he goes back to his gym, which is now able to be challenged.
 
According to the [[television]] show ''Gym Freaks'', Wulfric is a fan of the [[Brycen-Man Series]], to the point of crying when watching the latest movie. He is also rumored to keep a photo of his dearest Pokémon in the locket he wears around his neck.

Despite only using two Pokémon to battle Ash's three, Wulfric emerged victorious. Wulfric then explained that Ash is not having enough trust in his bond with {{AP|Greninja}}, which left the latter in serious doubt.
 
Wulfric reappeared inIn ''[[XY122|A Real Icebreaker!]]'', where Ash, having gotten over a subsequent bout of depression from Wulfric's explanation, challenged him to a [[rematch]]. This time, Ash put up a much better fight, eventually leadingleaving both sides with one Pokémon each: Ash's Greninja standing up against Wulfric's {{p|Abomasnow}}. With its now-perfected Ash-Greninja form, Greninja was easily able to gain an upper hand in the battle. However, Wulfric then suddenly [[Mega Evolution|Mega Evolved]] his Abomasnow, giving it a massive power boost. Despite this, Ash was eventually able to win the battle, earning him the {{badge|Iceberg}}.
 
Wulfric appeared in a fantasy in ''[[XY125|A League of His Own!]]'', when Ash was talking to [[Everett]] about the Gym Leaders that he had defeated in Kalos, in order for him to be able to compete in the [[Lumiose Conference]].
 
Wulfric appeared inIn ''[[XY132|A Towering Takeover!]]'', where heWulfric was seen in the [[Kalos Route 20|Winding Woods]], watching [[Lysandre]]'s broadcast from [[Lumiose City]] while being surrounded by some [[wild Pokémon]] in the forest. He appeared again inIn ''[[XY135|Rocking Kalos Defenses!]]'' and ''[[XY136|Forming a More Perfect Union!]]'', whereWulfric heand wasAbomasnow were among those who helped to destroy the [[Giant Rock]] along with Abomasnow.

===Pokémon=Character====
{{MissingInfo|2|java|enva}}Wulfric is a determined Gym Leader in battles, to the point when he even becomes slightly impatient. He likes when his challenger is motivated and driven through the battle and wants to see their fiery, burning passion. Wulfric believes progress and victories can be achieved if the trainer really trusts his Pokémon. He wants to see this during the battle and sometimes changes his strategy to see such passion. He also has a slight speaking problem, for sometimes he says "You know..." when describing something.

|desc={{p|Abomasnow}} was the first Pokémon Wulfric used during his Gym battle with Ash. Although he ended up being soon defeated by [[Ash's Hawlucha]], he managed to set up a {{OBP|hail|weather condition}}storm, which proved troublesome for Ash later in the battle.
 
Abomasnow reappeared in ''[[XY122|A Real Icebreaker!]]'', where he was Wulfric's final Pokémon in his rematch with Ash. He soon defeated [[Ash's Talonflame]], despite the massive type disadvantage. Ash's next choice was {{AP|Greninja}}, who soon gained an upper hand on Abomasnow and turned into its Ash-Greninja form, overpowering Abomasnow even further . Wulfric then revealed that Abomasnow was capable of [[Mega Evolution|Mega Evolving]] and triggered the process, making Ash-Greninja's opponent a Mega Abomasnow. Despite the increase in power, Mega Abomasnow was eventually defeated by Ash-Greninja, winning the match for Ash and earning him the {{badge|Iceberg}}.
 
He reappeared in ''[[XY135|Rocking Kalos Defenses!]]'' and ''[[XY136|Forming a More Perfect Union!]]'', where he helped to destroy the [[Giant Rock]].

|desc={{p|Avalugg}} was the second Pokémon used by Wulfric in his Gym battle with Ash. With the hailstorm set up by Abomasnow, Avalugg was able to use its Ice Body Ability to keep regaining health during the entire battle. It quickly defeated Ash's Hawlucha, after which Ash chose to use {{AP|Talonflame}}. Using Talonflame's great {{stat|Speed}} to his advantage, Wulfric had Avalugg use Avalanche, which was powered up due to Avalugg acting after its opponent. This eventually led to Talonflame's defeat, and Ash sent out {{AP|Greninja}} as his final Pokémon. Even though Greninja managed to freeze Avalugg's legs with quickly freezing {{m|Water Shuriken}}s and then transform into its Ash-Greninja form, it still wound up being defeated, costing Ash the battle. It reappeared in a flashback in the [[XY121|next episode]].
 
Avalugg reappeared in ''[[XY122|A Real Icebreaker!]]'', being the second Pokémon used by Wulfric in Ash's rematch against him. It managed to defeat [[Ash's Pikachu]], after which Ash chose to use Talonflame. This time, Talonflame was able to claim victory over the Iceberg Pokémon.

Wulfric debuted in the {{chap|X & Y}}. He was first mentioned by [[Grant]] as having not yet arrived to a meeting between the [[Kalos]] [[Gym LeadersLeader]]s about what to do with [[Team Flare]]. Once he arrived and the meeting finished, Wulfric and four other Gym Leaders meetmet up with {{adv|Y}}'s group. They traveltraveled by sea on Wulfric's {{p|Avalugg}} to [[Geosenge Town]], where Team Flare's base iswas located. Upon arriving, they findfound the [[ultimate weapon]] in the process of being activated. When Y leapsleaped in to keep the weapon's petals from opening, the Gym Leaders assistassisted her by also using their strength and their Pokémon to keep the weapon closed.
 
Despite their best efforts, the Gym Leaders arewere unable to prevent the ultimate weapon from blooming and firing on the Kalos [[region]]. The attack hitsstruck many areas and damagesdamaged several buildings, but the heroes' efforts managed to weaken the weapon's power and prevent any lives from being taken. The Gym Leaders and Y were also protected from the attack thanks toafter [[Olympia]] and [[Valerie]]'s Pokémon surrounding them in barriers.
 
Later, the Kalos Gym Leaders helphelped rebuild the damaged buildings that were destroyed by the ultimate weapon's blast. Due to Team Flare's influence over the media, the Gym Leaders and X's group were blamed for the incident.
 
Sometime later, Team Flare attemptsattempted to reactivate the plan to use the ultimate weapon by extracting life energy from wild Pokémon captured at the [[Pokémon Village]]. The plan iswas interrupted by the arrival of [[Viola]], [[Clemont]], [[Alexa]], [[Bonnie]], and [[Yvette]], who leadled a charge to free the captured Pokémon. When {{tc|Team Flare Admin|Chalmers}} attemptsattempted to call for backup, Wulfric pickspicked up the line and informsinformed him that he and the other Gym Leaders have defeated the other members of Team Flare that were stationed at [[Cyllage City]]. After Team Flare iswas fully defeated, Wulfric and his allies meetmet with X and his friends at [[Lumiose City]] to congratulate them on their victory.
