[[File:Faba anime.png|thumb|left|250px|Faba in the {{pkmn|anime}}]]
In the past, Faba worked on the creation of {{TP|Gladion|Silvally}}, a Pokémon created to combat {{an|Ultra Beasts}}. Although the project was a success, Faba lied to [[Lusamine]] and reported it to be a failure, keeping Silvally's existence a secret from her. Four years prior to the start of the {{series|Sun & Moon}}, Faba secretly opened an [[Ultra Wormhole]] down in [[Aether Paradise]]'s underground research area and successfully summoned a {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Nihilego}}. However, when {{an|Lillie}} stumbled across the site, the Ultra Beast took notice of her and attempted to take her back with it. As Faba could only watch in horror, Lillie was saved by Silvally. Sometime after the incident, Faba put restrictions on Silvally by giving it a special limiter mask, reverting it to a {{p|Type: Null}}. Because of this mistreatment, {{an|Gladion}} ultimately stole Silvally from him.

==={{series|Sun & Moon}}===
Faba debuted in ''[[SM044|A Dream Encounter!]]''. He, along with [[Lusamine]], [[Professor Burnet]], and [[Wicke]], investigated the [[Altar of the Sunne]] due to Ultra Aura being detected from that location. When they were unable to find anything, Faba blamed this on Burnet's equipment malfunctioning, only for Lusamine to point out his jealousy of Burnet. Later, after receiving another Ultra Aura response, Faba accompanied Lusamine and Professor Burnet to {{an|Professor Kukui}}'s house on [[Melemele Island]], where he met {{Ash}} and [[Nebby]]. He became upset with Lusamine when she entrusted Nebby to Ash, and for not letting the [[Aether Foundation]] take care of it instead.
 
In [[SM129]], Faba was among the 151 Trainers taking part in the [[Battle Royal]] round of the [[Manalo Conference]], using his {{p|Alakazam}}. In the end, Faba was among the Trainers to progress to the Top 16. The match-ups for the next round revealed that he would be battling Ash, prompting Faba to start thinking of a strategy to defeat him.

Despite this, Hypno was soon defeated, eliminating Faba from the competition.

His attempts to free himself failed until [[Wicke]] suggested that he take off his jacket.

Hypno briefly reappeared in ''[[SM090|Securing the Future!]]'', where it was recalled into its {{i|Poké Ball}} after being defeated.
