Zipp debuted in ''[[SM001|Alola to New Adventure!]]'', where he, [[Tupp]], and [[Rapp]] challenged {{an|Kiawe}} to a {{pkmn|battle}} with his {{TP|Kiawe|Charizard}} on the line. Zipp and the other {{tc|Team Skull Grunt|Grunts}} took on his {{TP|Kiawe|Turtonator}} and had it outnumbered, until {{Ash}} came to assist Kiawe with his {{AP|Pikachu}}. After a short battle, Zipp and his partners were defeated by Turtonator's [[Z-Move]] {{m|Inferno Overdrive}}, forcing them to retreat.
In [[SM128]], Zipp and her teammates arrived at the [[Manalo Stadium]] to try and destroy the Pokémon League for Guzma's sake without telling him what they were doing. Their efforts were thwarted by Ash, Kiawe, and [[Hau]], who easily defeated their Pokémon. Afterwards, Guzma and Plumeria arrived and scolded the Grunts for their failure.
In [[SM129]], Zipp competed in the [[Battle Royal]] preliminary round of the [[Manalo Conference]]. He and his teammates ganged up on Ilima and his Eevee, only to be defeated. In [[SM130]], Zipp watched Guzma battle Ilima alongside his fellow Team Skull Grunts and watched as his leader managed to defeat Ilima. In [[SM134]], Zipp and his teammates unsuccessfully attempted to intimidate {{an|Lana}} before her match against Guzma. Later, he cheered for Guzma during the battle. In [[SM135]], Zipp and his teammates were spray painting graffiti around Manalo Stadium when they were confronted by [[Mimo]]. Zipp and his teammates sent out their Pokémon to intimidate her only to be stopped by Gladion and his {{TP|Gladion|Silvally}}.
Zipp reappeared in [[SM135]] and will reappear in [[SM136]].
