Black & White arc

He, along his brothers, became gym leaders of Striaton City some time before the events of Black's adventures. Even though they earned their titles individually, it was figured that all three of them were perfect for the job to teach trainers about type advantages.

Cress was observing when Black got into arguments with their costumers. He told his brothers that Black did make a reservation. He and his brothers served tea to Black, Bianca, and Cheren, as a signal to a battle. Black knew that it was the signal and was ready to challenge them. As Black and his friends were on their way through the "appetizer", Chili revealed to them that they decided to have all three of them battle against them. The brothers purposely position themselves to where they had a type advantage against their opponent. With Cress, it meant he had a battle with Black and his Tepig. When it appeared that the triplets were winning, he soon leart that Black's Tepig, Cheren's Snivy, and Bianca's Oshawott were eating the fallen leaves off of Cilan's Pansage. The leaves gave them the energy to stand up and they won the battle. Cress gave the three friends the Trio Badge along with his brothers.[1]

Cress and his brothers had made a decision to go to Nacrene City. Cress and his brothers attacked the Shadow Triad. However, their Pokémon weren't strong enough to defeat them, so they tried evolving them with a Leaf Stone, Water Stone, and Fire Stone. Despite the evolution, their Pokémon were still not strong enough to defeat the Triad. Keldeo, noticing their determination and bond with their Pokémon, ran down to aid them in a battle and was soon aided by his mentors. After an explosive victory, the triplets watched in horror as three of the powerful Pokémon got frozen by the Triad.
