Steve first appeared when he challenged Emile to a Pokémon battle. He sent out his Aron against Teddy, Emile's Vigoroth, but then Emile withdrew Teddy. Emile then sent out Kappa, his Lombre, who defeated Aron with ease.

Episode 42 Edit

Steve called Emile to request a rematch.

Final Bonus Episode Edit

Steve was ready for a rematch, his Aron having evolved into a Lairon. Chugga's Moegami made short work of him, and Steve took his defeat gracefully. Chugga and Steve parted amicably.

Trivia Edit

  • If you rematch Steve enough, his Aron will eventually evolve into a Lairon and later into an Aggron.
  • There's another PokéManiac named Steve in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen. It's unclear whether or not they're the same person.
