- ―Darumaka's Pokédex Entry in Pokémon White
Pokémon Black & White
Emile wished to capture a Darumaka solely to show its PokéDex entry in White. After some searching on Route 4, he found a Level 15 female, against which he sent out Ottawa. The powerful Dewott used Fury Cutter twice to weaken it, taking a bit of damage in the process from Darumaka's Fire Fang and Rage attacks. Then Emile threw a single Poké Ball, succeeding in catching it.
Darumaka, 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.
Darumaka has an Impish Nature, increasing her Defense stat and lowering her Special Attack stat.

- Despite Emile catching it solely to show its humorous PokéDex entry, he later praised Darumaka's evolution Darmanitan as being by far one of the best Pokémon in the game.
- Darumaka was caught close to where Emile would later catch a Zen Mode Darmanitan
