Interim Between Episode 50 & Episode 76
Emile and Buck had cornered Team Galactic right where Looker wanted them. Looker and Croagunk then busted into the scene. Looker finally got out of his boulder disguise. Looker then arrested Charon in the name of the International Police. Grunt 1 and Grunt 2, Charon's lackeys, ran away. Two officers escorted Charon away to jail. Emile, Buck, and Looker then exited to the entrance of Stark Mountain. Looker gave Buck the Magma Stone that Charon was after. Buck left to put it back where it belonged in the volcano. Buck then left the pair. Looker parted with his friend Emile with a kind farewell.
Croagunk was indirectly mentioned by Looker, who said he was planning to teach new moves to his Pokémon.
- Croagunk is never seen in-battle.
- "Emile, I should tell you why I have arrived here. After we parted at Mt. Coronet, I investigated their hideout. I uncovered Charon's plot, which led me to a stakeout of this place." - Looker in Pokémon Platinum - Episode 76: Useless Buck
