{{series|Sun & Moon}}: you know what, that's better
In [[SM129]], James entered the [[Manalo Conference]] alongside Jessie. Disguised as (Japanese: '''デコジロウ''' ''Dekojirō''), James was among the 151 Trainers taking part in the [[Battle Royal]] preliminary round. Using Mareanie, James was one of the 16 Trainers still standing at the end of the round. The match-ups for the next round revealed that he would be battling Jessie.
In [[SM131]], James used Mareanie against Jessie and Wobbuffet, but resigned himself to defeat and took a halfhearted approach to the match. When Mareanie became locked in a stalemate with Wobbuffet, James advised her to throw the match by pretending to be defeated. However, her resolve to continue battling inspired James to take the fight more seriously, and his newfound determination to win allowed Mareanie to defeat Wobbuffet with a relentless {{m|Spike Cannon}} barrage. James subsequently advanced to the second round, where he was revealedloses to be going up against {{an|[[Gladion}}, who he loses to]] in [[SM132]].
