In ''[[PS419|Getting the Drop on Gallade I]]'', Empoleon participated in Platinum's {{si|[[Battle Castle}}]] challenge and fought against {{FB|Castle Valet|Darach}} and his {{p|Gallade}}. Empoleon uses her speed to get behind Gallade and hold him still, but he extends his blades behind him and deals heavy damage, making Platinum recall her. She is later switched back in to fight his {{p|Houndoom}} and defeats it with a {{m|Hydro Pump}}. After that {{p|Staraptor}} is called out and after a tiring battle Empoleon beats it with Blizzard. She is then switched back in again and later called out to finishes off the {{m|Attract}}-inflicted Gallade with {{m|Drill Peck}}, giving Platinum her first Battle Frontier win.
In ''[[PS424|Exit Empoleon]]'', Empoleon fought in Platinum's {{si|[[Battle Arcade}}]] challenge. During the battle against [[Arcade Star Dahlia]], Platinum and Dahlia had to switch Pokémon due to the roulette, meaning Empoleon and Platinum's other Pokémon were forced to fight against their {{pkmn|Trainer}}. Although both sides were reluctant at first, both Platinum and her Pokémon manage to fight at their full strength, which eventually ended with Platinum as the victor.
When Platinum went to challenge the {{OBP|Battle Factory|Generation IV}} in ''[[PS426|Softening Up Kakuna]]'', she sent Empoleon and her other Pokémon to search for [[Looker]] on [[Stark Mountain]], who had gone missing. They soon return, heavily injured and exhausted with a similarly injured Looker and [[Buck]].
