Drew debuted in ''[[AG033|Now That's Flower Power!]]'', where he was seen watching {{an|May}} {{pkmn|training}} for the [[Slateport City]] [[Pokémon Contest]]. He said she needed a lot of practice and insulted her Pokémon, which made her angry. Later, when May and her friends were looking for [[Bluk Berry|Bluk Berries]], he appeared and challenged her to a {{pkmn|battle}}. He did a good job showing off the [[Move|attacks]] of his {{TP|Drew|Roselia}}, but the battle was interrupted when {{TRT}} stole the Bluk Berries. He then helped May to retrieve the {{Berries}} and left.
 
He appeared inIn ''[[AG035|Win, Lose or Drew!]]'', toDrew competecompeted in the Slateport Contest. He received a good score in the [[Appeal|Appeals Round]] and was qualified for the [[Contest Battle|second round]], where he and his Roselia defeated May and her {{TP|May|Beautifly}}, but lost to {{ho|Robert}} and his {{p|Milotic}}.

It was revealed in this episode that he had already won three [[Ribbon]]s. In ''[[AG051|Come What May!]]'', he competed in the {{to|Fallarbor}} Contest; however, he lost to {{ho|Grace}} and her {{p|Medicham}}. Following May's victory, Drew congratulated her by giving her a rose. This gesture was repeated in many other episodes.
 
His next appearance was inIn ''[[AG061|Disaster of Disguise]]'', where heDrew had a battle with [[Timmy Grimm|The Phantom]] and lost. He was planning to compete in the {{to|Verdanturf}} Contest, but after his Roselia got injured in a battle with The Phantom's {{p|Dusclops}}, he thought it would not be good enough to battle and decided not to participate. He was seen in the audience in ''[[AG062|Disguise Da Limit]]''.
 
In ''[[AG077|A Fan with a Plan]]'', Drew was revealed to own a {{p|Masquerain}}. He was seen practicing with it, and, in ''[[AG078|Cruisin' for a Losin']]'', he used it to defeat [[Savannah]]'s {{p|Lairon}} in the finals of the [[Rank (Contest)|R1]] [[Rubello Town]] Pokémon Contest. This victory gave Drew his fourth Ribbon.
 
Drew appeared again inIn ''[[AG113|Who, What, When, Where, Wynaut?]]'', where it was revealed that heDrew had obtained his fifth Ribbon. When May showed him her four Ribbons, he told her that there was only one more Pokémon Contest to be held before the [[Grand Festival]], and criticized her for relying on luck and for not having strategies. May then challenged him to a battle, which was interrupted by Team Rocket's attempt to steal {{AP|Pikachu}}. Accidentally, Drew was pulled into Team Rocket's submarine along with the rest of {{ashfr|the group}}. When the submarine exploded, the entire group was blasted into the air. They fell in the {{gdis|Mirage Island|III}}, where they met a group of {{p|Wynaut}}.
 
Drew entered the [[Hoenn Grand Festival]] in ''[[AG121|Hi Ho Silver Wind!]]'', where he sent out his Roselia to perform in the preliminary Appeals Round. He received an excellent score that allowed him to pass to the next stage. In ''[[AG122|Deceit and Assist]]'', he used his Masquerain for the main Appeals Round, and the performance given by the {{pkmn|category|Eyeball Pokémon}} put him in the Battle Round. In ''[[AG123|Rhapsody in Drew]]'', he faced May in the quarterfinals of the competition. Using his Roselia and {{p|Flygon}}, he was able to defeat May, who was using her {{TP|May|Combusken}} and {{TP|May|Skitty}}. He made it all the way to the finals, where he battled against Robert for the title of [[Top Coordinator]]. However, just like in the Slateport Contest, Drew ended up losing to him.

In ''[[AG162|Spontaneous Combusken!]]'', when May said she was ready to defeat him in the {{isl|Chrysanthemum}} Contest, Drew revealed that he wasn't going to compete because he had participated in several Pokémon Contests lately and his Pokémon were exhausted and in need of some rest and relaxation.

He managed to pass the Appeals Round and quickly reached the quarterfinals, where he found himself against May once again. He fought a hard battle, but his Flygon and {{p|Absol}} ended up being defeated by May's Combusken and {{TP|May|Squirtle}}.
In ''[[AG187|The Unbeatable Lightness of Seeing!]]'', after finding May feeling down, he decided to have a Contest Battle with her to cheer her up. At the end of the episode, he revealed that he would be traveling to the [[Johto]] [[region]] to participate in Pokémon Contests there.

===Character===
[[File:Drew grooming Masquerain.png|thumb|220px|Drew grooming his Pokémon]]
Like {{Gary}}, Drew is portrayed as being confident, critical, and popular among his supporters, though he is generally not as overly insulting as Gary initially was. 
Drew raises his Pokémon so that they are able to showcase their maximum potential in Pokémon Contests. He is shown to {{pkmn|groomer|groom}} them and treat them well, praising them for their efforts even when they do not succeed. However, when he feels that his Pokémon are not giving it their all, he will scold them. This was shown in ''[[AG181|Thinning the Hoard!]]'' when he became angry at {{p|Absol}} for what he considered to be a lackluster performance.

In the {{ci|Slateport}} Contest, Drew sent out {{TP|Drew|Roselia}} and the performance it delivered gave Drew a fantastic score, higher than May's. During the [[Contest Battle|Battle Stage]], Drew was matched up against May. Despite May trying her best and her Beautifly having the type advantage, Drew was able to defeat her. He went to challenge {{ho|Robert}} and his {{p|Milotic}}, and lost despite the type advantage. After the loss, Drew shrugged it off and promised to be better in the next Pokémon Contest and went off, motivating May to do the same.
