Banette making Silver look into its eyes.

Banette first appeared when it sprung out of a car that came from the Team Rocket airship when Silver's Gyarados used Fire Blast on the car. It used Shadow Ball in retaliation for what it did. Causing a massive amount of damage to Gyarados, Yellow healed it, but once it healed, Banette used Snatch to take the energy from Gyarados. Once Sird and Orm introduced themselves, Sird suggested a Multi Battle, which Silver agreed, to the panic of Yellow.[1] Sird used it in the battle alongside Orm and his fierce-looking Jumpluff. Banette attacked Double-Edge, with Gyarados using Fire Blast again, but Banette dodged it, ending up back in front of its trainer.[2] Due to the revelation stated by Sird, Silver's defenses were down. Sird took advantage of this and had Banette take control of it by having Silver look into Banette's eyes.[3]

On the airship, she had Banette lower Silver, so she could dress him a ceremonial outfit to crown him the new prince of evil.[4]

As Sird came to Spear Pillar during the chaos, Banette, Persian and Starmie attended with her.[5][6]
