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 interviewedappeared and presentedon a gold[[television|shopping safechannel]] thatcalled was(Japanese: said'''ブルガンショッピング''' to''Bourgain Shopping'') broadcast befrom veryViren sturdyTower, evenwhere havinghe presented the "Bling Bling Gold Safe," a product he described as completely indestructible.

However, Kartana returnedappeared again and effortlessly sliced through the safe. Viren confronted Kartana with Electivire and Pangoro and demanded that it own up to its actions, but it sliced a hole in halfViren Tower and escaped.
In [[SM129]], Viren watched [[Mr. Electric]] and [[Mad Magmar]] as they participated in the [[Manalo Conference]], urging them to defeat Kiawe. However, they were promptly defeated by [[Kiawe's Turtonator]].
