Butler and [[Diane]] grew up together, and he would often perform magic tricks for her even when they were children. During this time, he first acquired the stage name "The Great Butler" based on something Diane said to him when he performed the trick of making many {{p|Butterfree}} appear. By the present day, Diane became his girlfriend and performed with him in his traveling magic show.
At some point in the past, Butler somehow became involved with [[Team Magma]] as a {{tc|Scientist}}. He developed a machine that he intended to use to recreate {{p|Groudon}} using a [[Fossil|fossilized]] remnant he had obtained, but when he activated the device for the first time before the Team Magma council, it malfunctioned early on in the process and exploded. This failure earned Butler scorn from the leadership of Team Magma and led to his dismissal from the organization. Enraged, he collected the fossilized Groudon remnant and swore he would get his revenge. He and Diane set out on a search for an energy source powerful enough to sustain the recreation, ultimately leading them to discover {{OBP|Jirachi|M06}}'s crystal cocoon in [[Forina]].
When {{Ash}}, {{an|Brock}}, {{an|May}}, and [[Max]] arrived at the site of the [[Millennium Festival]], they saw Butler and Diane exit their truck and set up the tent for his show. The next day they obtained a poster promoting his performance and decided to attend. During the show, Diane presented Jirachi's cocoon to the audience as part of her entrance. Max heard Jirachi's voice calling to him and ran up on the stage to investigate, and Ash followed in an attempt to bring Max back to his seat. Improvising, Butler enlisted them as volunteers for a disappearing-act trick using a special box and his {{p|Dusclops}}. After the show, Butler explained Jirachi's mythology and gave Max the cocoon, telling him that Jirachi could only awaken if it had a friend while the [[Millenium Comet]] was visible in the sky. Jirachi awoke shortly afterward, but when Diane informed Butler of this, he began preparing to execute his plan for revenge on Team Magma.
Shortly afterwards, Jirachi destroyed Groudon using {{m|Doom Desire}}, reviving all who had been absorbed by it. Butler and Diane reappeared near each other, and he rushed to her and embraced her in joy. The pair then watched as Max and his friends bade Jirachi farewell and sang to it as it returned to its slumber. The next day, Butler told the group that he had realized what was truly important and would be staying with Diane in Forina, but offered to bring them back to the town in their bus first.
Butler later appeared in a flashback induring the opening sequence of ''[[M07|Destiny Deoxys]]''. He and Diane also made a cameo appearance during the ending credits of ''[[M08|Lucario and the Mystery of Mew]]'', where they were living as farmers in Forina when [[Kidd Summers]] visited it. He later briefly reappeared in a montage in ''[[M10|The Rise of Darkrai]]'', which chronicled the preceding nine {{pkmn|movie}}s.
