In ''[[SM123|A Fiery Training Camp Trick!]]'', Sophocles went on a training camp with Ash and Kiawe in order to learn how to use his Z-Ring, but repeatedly failed to keep up with their training methods. The next day, Sophocles and Vikavolt were forced to battle a wild {{p|Crawdaunt}} alone. Though scared, Vikavolt's refusal to give up gave Sophocles the confidence he needed to fully utilize his Z-Ring, allowing them to use {{m|Savage Spin-Out}} and defeat Crawdaunt. Afterward, Kiawe revealed the battle was a set-up he devised to boost Sophocles' confidence and improve his battling skills.
In ''[[SM129|Battle Royal 151]]'', Sophocles was among the 151 Trainers taking part in the [[Battle Royal]] preliminary round of the [[Manalo Conference]]. Using Togedemaru, Sophocles was among the 16 Trainers still standing at the end of the round. The match-ups for the next round revealed that he would be battling [[Mina]]. In ''[[SM131|The Battlefield of Truth and Love!]]'', Sophocles faced Mina in the first round, using Vikavolt against her {{p|Ribombee}}. Eventually, Ribombee was defeated, allowing Sophocles to advance to the second round. Later, it was revealed his next opponent would be Kiawe. In [[SM133]], Sophocles faced Kiawe in the second round, and before their battle started, Sophocles revealed he started to enjoy battling and wished to defeat Kiawe one day despite knowing how strong he is. The battle continued in the [[SM134|next episode]], where, after a fierce exchange of attacks, Kiawe eventually emerged victorious, eliminating Sophocles from the tournament.
In [[SM139]], Sophocles attended the award ceremony for Ash's victory in the Manalo Conference, only for it to be interrupted when a {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Manalo Stadium Guzzlord|Guzzlord}} arrived at the stadium through a wormhole. In [[SM140]], Sophocles helped evacuate innocent civilians to safety. When a second, {{Shiny}} {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Shiny Guzzlord|Guzzlord}} appeared in the shopping area, Sophocles, Lillie, Lana, and Mallow helped Kiawe, Gladion, and [[Hau]] battle it. By combining their Z-Moves into one giant attack, Sophocles and the others managed to successfully knock the Shiny Guzzlord back into Ultra Space.
