[[File:Maylene anime.png|thumb|220px|Maylene in the {{pkmn|anime}}]]
Maylene debuted in ''[[DP066|Lost Leader Strategy!]]'', where it was revealed that she had been challenged by [[Paul]] to a [[Gym]] {{pkmn|battle}} prior to the episode's events. {{cat|Paul's Pokémon}} had a [[type]] advantage over Maylene's {{type|Fighting}} [[Party|team]], and this, coupled with the fact that Maylene was feeling out of sync with her Pokémon, resulted in an embarrassing match in which she failed to [[Fainting|knock out]] a single one of his Pokémon. After being defeated, Maylene awarded Paul with the {{Badge|Cobble}}, and Paul noted that she was the weakest [[Gym Leader]] he had ever battled. As a result, Maylene lost confidence in herself as a Gym Leader, a position that she had only held for six months. Paul's rude remarks, combined with how badly Maylene performed during the battle, caused her {{TP|Maylene|Lucario}} and the majority of her {{cat|Gym assistants}} to lose faith in her and feel concerned for her. When {{Ash}} challenged her, she declined, much to the annoyance of Lucario.
