Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX
Team Rose Thorn, then made up of Chamomile and Willow, found two Magnemite waiting outside Chargestone Cave, who told them that their friends were in the sixth basement. The duo rescued the two other Magnemite on the sixth floor and reunited them with their friends.
The two Magnemite appeared again to assist in the rescue of Diglett after he had been carried off to Mt. Steel by Skarmory. With Chamomile and Willow unable to cross a gap to safely rescue Diglett, the two Magnemite flew up to him and pressed up against his sides before carrying him to safety.
After reuniting Diglett with his father, Dugtrio, Willow asked one of the Magnemites to join Team Rose Thorn, as she figured that they couldn't have saved Diglett without them. However, the Magnemite rejected the offer after it found out that the team had no place for recruited members to stay to enable them to quickly join in on a rescue. The Magnemites apologized and left, much to Willow's disappointment.
After Team Rose Thorn unlocked Friend Camps, Magnemite asked Wigglytuff to give them access to the Power Plant. Wigglytuff agreed, allowing Magnemite to join the team as their first recruit, given the nickname Buzzy Bo. The next day, Chamomile and Willow visited the Power Plant and gave Buzzy Bo several Gummis, unlocking the Rare Quality Defensive Rhythm followed shortly by overwriting it with Leap Ahead.

Why Emile Chose Magnemite
While Magnemite is one of the two scripted recruits required to join the team, Emile had a high opinion of Magnemite due to its high Defense, multiple resistances with its typing, and a healthy move pool that was 'god-tier' in the original. He recommended it even if one of the two starters was Electric-type.

Buzzy Bo's name is derived from "buzzy boy," the nickname Hamm gives Buzz Lightyear in the N64 Toy Story 2 game. Its name was originally intended to be Buzzy Boy, but Chugga's finger accidentally slipped on the "back" button instead of the "accept button", leaving it with 'bo' instead of 'boy'. Chugga found the mistake funny and accepted it as the nickname.
- Buzzy Bo is the first Pokemon to be recruited to Team Rose Thorn.
