[[File:Ash and Tyson.png|thumb|left|200px|Tyson and Ash]]
Tyson first appeared in ''[[AG125|Like a Meowth to a Flame]]'', in which he rescued {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} from a flock of {{p|Murkrow}} with his {{TP|Tyson|Meowth}}. They quickly became friends as it turns out they were going to the same place to eat and because Tyson has a certain fondness for food like {{an|May}}. The group met up with him interacting with [[Charles Goodshow]], where he found out that Ash and Brock were also torch-runners [[EP074|in the past]]. Later, {{TRT}} disguised as an "[[Officer Jenny"]] and "[[Nurse Joy" ({{TRT}} in disguise)]], went up to Tyson and ran off with the torch oftournament's {{p|Moltres}}-flamed torch. He warned Ash and the gang that they ran off with the torch and chased after them. Tyson stopped [[Team Rocket's mechas|their balloon]] by having his {{p|Metagross}} use {{m|Confusion}}. His Meowth successfully took the torch from the {{MTR|talking one}} and finished the villains with {{m|Thunderbolt}}.
In ''[[AG126|Saved by the Beldum]]'', he came to Ash's and [[Morrison]]'s rescue from Team Rocket's pit traps. Once again, his Meowth sent them away but this time, with an {{m|Iron Tail}}. He later battled [[Vivica]] and her {{p|Persian}} in the first round of the Ever Grande Conference. Tyson used Meowth and ended up winning the round, only for him to have to restrain Meowth from attacking any further.
In ''[[AG128|Shocks and Bonds]]'', Tyson went up against [[Johnny]]. withBy {{p|Sceptile}}the time Ash and {{p|Aggron}}his remainingfriends asarrived to watch the battle, Tyson's {{p|Donphan}} and Johnny's {{p|Blastoise}} were already knocked out by the time Ash and company arrived to watch his battle. Tyson was able to defeat Johnny when {{p|Sceptile}} successfully used {{m|Solar Beam}} on {{p|Aggron}}.
He then watched the [[Full Battle]] between Ash and {{ho|Katie}}. Tyson defeated his opponent's {{p|Rhydon}} with Meowth in ''[[AG129|A Judgment Brawl]]'' after Ash defeated Katie.
He battled Ash in ''[[AG130|Choose It or Lose It!]]'' and ''[[AG131|At the End of the Fray!]]''. Tyson was a very tough opponent for Ash as both sides were down to their last Pokémon, Pikachu and Meowth respectively. After a long battle, both sides were having trouble standing up. However, Meowth emerged victorious when it was the only one standing. Tyson congratulated Ash for a good battle. Tyson then went on to the finals and ended up winning the [[Hoenn]] {{pkmn|League Conference}}, having the chance to battle the {{DL|Elite Four|Hoenn Elite Four}}.
After the Ever Grande Conference, he said goodbye to Ash and his friends as he left [[Ever Grande City]] in ''[[AG132|The Scheme Team]]''.
Tyson is generally laid back and humble. He regularly complements others like when he noted {{an|Brock}}’s skills as a [[Pokémon Breeder]] after his picky Meowth took a liking to Brock's handmade food. He enjoys traveling between towns to reach the next [[Gym]], and takes time out of his training schedule to try out the local eateries.
He has a deep and personal connection with his Pokémon, giving them pep talks and makes an effort to spend time with them.
In {{pkmn|battle}}, Tyson is stern and quickly takes charge of the situation. He is a tactical {{pkmn|Trainer}}, who makes use of [[type]] advantages and brute force. Tyson was taken aback by some of {{Ash}}'s unconventional methods and stamina in ''[[AG131|At the End of the Fray]]''. To control the situation, he maintained his typical strategy of using his Pokémon's attacks like Meowth's {{m|Thunderbolt}} and {{p|Hariyama}}'s {{m|Arm Thrust}} to deflect damage. While confident in his abilities, he continues to hone his techniques by observing others in battle.
