In the core series games

Emmet can be battled in a Double Battle on the Battle Subway's Double Train once the player has acquired a 20 win streak, and on the Super Double Train once the player has acquired a 48 win streak. He can also be fought alongside his brother Ingo in a Multi Battle on the Multi Train once the player has acquired a 20 win streak, and on the Super Multi Train once the player has acquired a 48 win streak. His teams in both Black and White and Black 2 and White 2 are identical. In Black 2 and White 2 only, the brothers can also be faced in a one-time Multi Battle in front of the Gear Station.

Emmet in the anime

Emmet is an old acquaintance of Cilan’s, having first met at a rail enthusiasts convention. Emmet refers to Ingo as "big brother" in the original version of the anime indicating that he is the younger of the twins.

Emmet debuted at the end of Beheeyem, Duosion, and the Dream Thief! along with Ingo, where they detected Team Rocket's tampering with the track switches. In The Beartic Mountain Feud!, the pair went in search of what or who was causing these disturbances and they caught a glimpse of two figures—Jessie and James—before they disappeared into the shadows.

In Crisis from the Underground Up! and Battle for the Underground!, Emmet and his brother met Ash, Cilan, and Iris as the subway they were riding had stopped. After Pokémon had been stolen from the Pokémon Center, Emmet and Ingo teamed up with the trio to stop Team Rocket and retrieve all the stolen Pokémon.

In Lost at the Stamp Rally!, Emmet and his brother helped Erina locate her lost Axew as a favor for Cilan. They rewarded his and Ash's good deed by having a Tag Battle against them, who were using Pansage and Tepig respectively. Despite Ash and Cilan pushing their hardest, they were finally defeated as Ingo's Chandelure stopped the two Pokémon with Psychic, so Emmet's Eelektross was able to knock them out with a Thunderbolt.

Emmet, along with Ingo, appeared in A Surface to Air Tag Battle Team! as part of a fantasy made up by Soren, who boasted that both he and his brother Rocko had beaten the Subway Bosses in a Tag Battle. However, this claim was quickly disproved by Rocko.

Emmet appeared in a cameo in the ending credits of Genesect and the Legend Awakened, and in Cilan's flashback in Survival of the Striaton Gym!.

Pokémon Journeys: The Series

Emmet reappeared in Must Be Our Heroes and the Witch!, alongside Ingo as a fantasy caused by a wild Hatterene. At the end of the episode, Cilan revealed he planned to attend an event held by the brothers.


Emmet and his brother Ingo are markedly similar. They are both composed and precise in manner, important attributes to his role as one of the Subway Bosses. While Ingo often takes the lead, Emmet is in sync with his brother’s battle strategies.


Eelektross first appeared super-charging a maintenance car that Emmet and Ingo were using to catch up to Team Rocket.

It was used in Lost at the Stamp Rally! in the battle against Cilan and Ash.

It also appeared in a fantasy in A Surface to Air Tag Battle Team!, and in a flashback in Survival of the Striaton Gym!.

Eelektross's known moves are Discharge, Acid, and Thunderbolt.

Emmet in Pokémon Adventures

Black & White arc

Emmet debuts in Growing Pains. He, along with his brother Ingo, is first seen walking around Gear Station. They are later properly introduced as the Subway Bosses for the newly-created Battle Subway to Black and White. According to the Mayor of Nimbasa City, they were recruited by him because of their strength. White later decides to take part in a test run of the Battle Subway, which she uses as a way to learn how to become a Trainer.

As the three travel, White is pitted against Virtual Trainers while the twins evaluate her progress. Emmet's love of battling and impatience leads to him constantly asking White to win 20 consecutive battles so that they can have a battle. This behavior repeatedly scares White, which forces Ingo to apprehend his brother and drag him away.

Sometime later, the train arrives at Anville Town, the final stop. At this point, White's skills have improved to the point where she can battle one of the Subway Bosses, much to Emmet's delight. Emmet referees a battle between White and Ingo, which ends in a tie, to Ingo's frustration. After stepping out for a bit, White returns with Bianca, a friend of hers. White asks the twins to take her to Castelia City so that she can help Bianca with her troubles. Afterward, White returns to continue her training.

After more traveling, White finishes her training and goes her separate ways from the Subway Bosses.


Durant is Emmet's only known Pokémon. It was first seen next to Emmet while White was testing the Battle Subway.

None of Durant's moves are known and its Ability is Swarm.
