In the games

In Pokémon Black and White, Ghetsis is encountered during the initial story, when the player enters the area for the first time.

In Black 2 and White 2, the bridge is closed due to undergoing testing involving the bridge's capacity until after the player enters the Hall of Fame. Part of a small sidequest occurs where if the player has given a man in an orange shirt a Fresh Water at Skyarrow Bridge and Driftveil Drawbridge, then they will meet up with the same man here. Should the player give him another Fresh Water, then he will become rehydrated and dash to the Village Bridge.

On Friday nights, after encountering Ghetsis here, a Biker gang who call themselves the Black Empoleon takes over the Tubeline Bridge. After beating Jeremy, the leader, he becomes so impressed he renames his gang after the player's lead Pokémon. However, they still will not leave until the end of the night.

Pokémon Adventures

Black & White arc

The Tubeline Bridge appeared in Decisions, Decisions and School of Hard Knocks, where Black faced a series of training sessions set up by Brycen. While Black's Musha, Costa, and Tula trained by battling Brycen's three Vanillish, Black was tasked with having Bo free him from Cryogonal's ice chain. As the bridge was from time to time rocked by the bypassing subway trains, proper aiming was difficult.

While Black was training, Brycen talked with Drayden about if they should give Black the Light Stone, as Team Plasma had stolen the Dark Stone, and the Light Stone seemed to have chosen Black as its hero.

After Black managed to free himself from the ice chain, his next test was to get past the Black Empoleon bike gang. With Tula dealing with the rest of the gang, Musha dealing with the gang leader Jeremy's bike, and Costa dealing with Jeremy himself, the bike gang was soon taken down. In defeat, they renamed their gang "the Black Tirtouga".
