As mentioned in ''[[EP017|Island of the Giant Pokémon]]'', James received Koffing already captured for the last Christmas ({{jwp|歳暮|oseibo}} in the original Japanese version) before he met {{Ash}}. It is unknown who gifted it to him.
Weezing first appeared in ''[[EP002|Pokémon Emergency!]]'' as a {{p|Koffing}}. James used it alongside [[Jessie]]'s {{TP|Jessie|Ekans]]}} to quickly overtake the defenseless {{ci|Viridian}} [[Pokémon Center]]. Koffing's job was to create a {{m|Smokescreen}} while Ekans destroyed the computers. Chasing everyone into the back room, Koffing and Ekans accompanied their Trainers in intimidating theAsh, others{{an|Misty}} and [[Nurse Joy]], which caused Misty to decide to battle Team Rocket{{TRT}}. This was a failed effort, however, as both of them managed to catch up to Ash in no time at all. However, [[Nurse Joy]]'s {{p|Pikachu}} came out and healed [[Ash's Pikachu]] with a {{m|Thunder Shock}} attack, while at the same time attacking the [[Team Rocket trio]]. Giving Ash's Pikachu enough power to stand up, Ash charged up Pikachu using Misty's charred bike, and he let him use his own Thunder Shock. As the group were electrocuted, Koffing used {{m|Smog}}, and the electricity climbed up the toxic gas, causing the entire Pokémon Center to explode, and sending Team Rocket blasting off for the first time.

It was used constantly by James as his main battling Pokémon throughout [[Kanto]] and eventually [[evolution|evolved]] into a Weezing in ''[[EP031|Dig Those Diglett!]]'', along with Ekans, after James and [[Jessie]] were desperate for them to evolve.
In ''[[EP052|Princess vs. Princess]]'', Jessie used Weezing during the {{DL|Princess Festival|Queen of the Princess Festival contest}}. Weezing helped Jessie make it to the finals, but ultimately failed against Pikachu's Thunder Shock.
