He reappeared inIn ''[[BW103|Curtain Up, Unova League!]]'', to takeVirgil partparticipated in the Vertress Conference. There, he got some words of encouragement from Davy, who brought him to Vertress City, with Virgil promising to make their father proud. Afterwards, he met up with Ash, his friends and all of Ash's other [[Unova]] rivals. He stuck with Ash and his friends while they went to register and met up with {{un|Cameron}}. In the first round, he was pitted against [[Ultimo]]. He used his {{p|Vaporeon}} to battle against Ultimo's {{p|Crustle}}. The battle continued in ''[[BW104|Mission: Defeat Your Rival!]]'', and Virgil won, allowing him to move onto the next round. Unlike the other rivals when they finished their matches, he was not present when Ash was battling Trip.
In ''[[BW105|Lost at the League!]]'', he was revealed to have made it through the second round and he was shown defeating a {{p|Reuniclus}} with his {{p|Glaceon}} in the third round, getting Virgil to the last 16 Trainers. During the matchups of the fourth round, he got paired with [[Flora]]. When the Pokémon League took a short break, he went up to Ash and his friends while they were searching for {{TP|Iris|Axew}} as he wandered off after a red balloon attracted his attention earlier. Virgil went to the camera room in order to find out where Axew went. After finding out he was taken by a large group of people, he went with Ash and friends again and they continued their search. Bianca arrived and told the group she had seen Axew earlier on. Virgil stayed with her while Ash, {{an|Iris}} and {{an|Cilan}} left to find Axew. Virgil then walked by an alley with Bianca where they met a woman who told them she had seen [[Ash's Oshawott]] and some other Pokémon of the group being chased by a {{p|Garbodor}} along a group of {{p|Trubbish}}. Virgil and Bianca immediately headed to a cliff where the Garbodor the woman mentioned threatened the group's Pokémon. As soon as {{AP|Pikachu}}, {{AP|Oshawott}}, {{TP|Iris|Emolga}}, {{AP|Scraggy}} and Axew were about to fall down a cliff, Virgil arrived in time and used his Espeon's {{m|Psychic}} to get them back up. As soon as Garbodor attacked them with {{m|Gunk Shot}}, Virgil sent out his Umbreon and had it use {{m|Shadow Ball}} to cancel out Garbodor's attack. He then rang a [[Soothe Bell]] in order to get the Garbodor and the group of Trubbish to calm down. Later, while Ash, Iris, Cilan and their Pokémon bought the {{type|Poison}} Pokémon lots of food in order to make up for what Oshawott did (Oshawott had eaten all of the Trubbish's apples, hence why their caretaker Garbodor was angry), Virgil stayed behind the alley along with Bianca. He watched the fireworks organised for the Vertress Conference and then moved to a grassy field with Ash's friends to continue watching them.
In ''[[SS026|Mewtwo — Prologue to Awakening]]'', Virgil was on his way back to the base after a rescue mission, when his aircraft malfunctioned, forcing him to make an emergency landing. While repairing his aircraft, he met a man named {{un|Oscar}} and his granddaughter, {{un|Anna}}, who offered him food. They also told him a story of how one day, while hiking on a nearby hill, they had almost fallen into a ravine, only to be saved by a mysterious {{t|Psychic}} Pokémon. A man named [[Dirk]] then appeared, explaining that the Pokémon in question was {{OBP|Mewtwo|Best Wishes series}}, an [[artificial Pokémon]]. He claimed that it had saved him from a landslide, but had been hurt in the process, too. With the help of Virgil's Team Eevee and some local forest Pokémon, they were able to locate Mewtwo. Unfortunately it turned out that Dirk was in fact a [[Pokémon poacher|Pokémon hunter]], hired to recapture Mewtwo and bring it back to [[Mewtwo's creators|its creators]]. As the fight between Dirk and Mewtwo resulted a forest fire, Virgil had Team Eevee fight the fire with their attacks, until it was put out by Mewtwo. After Mewtwo had freed Dirk's {{p|Tyranitar}} and {{p|Escavalier}}, Virgil had his Espeon and Umbreon use Psychic on Dirk, preventing him from escaping. He also assured Mewtwo that he would turn the hunter over to [[Officer Jenny]]. Later, Virgil was interviewed in a television program which Ash and his friends were seen watching.
Virgil also makesmade a cameo appearance in the ending ''[[Let's Join Hands]]''.
