Pokémon Black & White Edit
Blueeye, along with the rest of Emile's catalog of Pokémon, was seen in the PC when Emile was looking for a Pokémon to teach Fly.
As is always the case for this in-game trade, Blueeye has an Adamant Nature, increasing his Attack and decreasing his Special Attack. Additionally, his Characteristic is "Likes to thrash about", meaning that his highest IV is in Attack.

- Chip Away (Pre-Episode 25–Present)
- Take Down (Pre-Episode 25–Present)
- Crunch (Pre-Episode 25–Present)
- Blueeye is Emile's second Pokemon received from Trade in White, the first being Berk.
- Basculin comes in two colors, Emile preferring Blueeye (White-exclusive) over the red version (Black-exclusive) for its Rock Head ability.
- Blueeye is the second Pokemon owned by Emile to have a name referring to a Yu-Gi-Oh! monster. Jinzou is the first.
- Unlike Jinzou, Emile didn't name Basculin. Kyle did.
- Emile linked Blueeye's name to the Blue-Eyes White Dragon, the signature card of Seto Kaiba and the favorite card of the series creator, Kazuki Takahashi.
- In Black a red-eyed Basculin named 'Redeye' replaces Blueeye as the trade Pokemon. 'Redeye' can also have its name linked to a Yu-Gi-Oh! monster, in this case the Red-Eyes Black Dragon protagonist Joey Wheeler won off Rex Raptor.
