In Black 2 and White 2, he's no longer a Gym Leader. If [[Unova Link#Memory Link|Memory Link]] is used, it is shown in a flashback that the trio begin to question their strength after being unable to battle [[Team Plasma]], as general opinion is that it needs the three of them to make a good trainer, and discuss what needs to be done to correct that. Suddenly the [[Shadow Triad]] assaults them on a "whim", and both sides engage in a Battle. However the Shadow Triad easily defeats the Gym Leaders, which makes them leave so as to check on the other Gym Leaders that can be a true threat. The humiliating defeat, makes them admit they can only succeed as a trio. They then decide to resign as Gym Leaders and restart their training from scratch, so that eventually one of them can become a recognized trainer, then when their strengths match each other again, they can be a trio of Gym Leaders once more. They then think on who will be the new Gym Leader.

He battled against Ash as well in the anime because Ash wanted to battle all three of the Trio. However, Cress defeated Ash's Pikachu using his powerful and strategic [[Panpour]]. His English Voice Actor is Tom Wayland.
   
Cress prefers to be cool like a glass of water and his Panpour feels the same. He will try to confuse you with [[Double Team]] at the start, following it up with [[Water Gun]] and [[Mud Sport]]. He is one of the hardest to beat so be careful. Cress seems to enjoy bragging about his Panpour.

Cress reappeared in [[BW060]], where he informed Cilan over the phone of the reason why Chili was not at the Gym. Contrary to what Chili had said, he had not left in order to study but ran away. Chili had asked him the night why he kept losing. Cress had told him he focused too much on offense with little consideration to defense. As he feared, Chili took it as an insult and ran away. Cress was pleased when Cilan told him he would help Chili with his battle style and help get his confidence back and thanked him for it.
