In ''[[SM085|The Long Vault Home!]]'', Ash encountered Viren as he was overseeing the construction of a resort known as Viren Tower (Japanese: '''ブルガンタワー''' ''Bourgain Tower''). Two days later, the [[Ultra Beast]] {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Stakataka}} made its way into the construction site, forcing the [[Ultra Guardians]] to come and investigate the area, much to Viren's annoyance. Viren, mistaking the Rampart Pokémon for a statue stand, glued a golden statue of himself onto Stakataka, causing it to go berserk in an attempt to get the statue off. The Ultra Guardians attempted to help it out, but Viren briefly got in their way. Eventually, with the assistance of Kiawe's {{TP|Kiawe|Turtonator}}, Ash made it on top of Stakataka and had his {{AP|Pikachu}} knock the statue off, calming it down. Though the Ultra Guardians succeeded in capturing Stakataka, Viren's statue was damaged, resulting in him deciding to call off the resort's construction in favor of a baseball stadium known as Viren Stadium with its own team instead.
By the time of [[SM124]], the Viren Stadium and Viren Tower were completed. As a result, he and his henchmen began practicing for the inauguration ceremony of the stadium, only for a {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Kartana}} to slice the golden statue of himself in half. He was later interviewed and presented a gold safe that was said to be sturdy, even having {{p|Electivire}} and Pangoro attack the safe without it sustaining any successdamage. However, Kartana returned and sliced the safe in half.
