Emile searched the Pinwheel Forest to find a Fighting-Type to capture. He found a Level 12 Throh and sent out Haywire against it. During the following battle, Emile groused about his dislike of Throh's species name because of how it was impossible to discern as a Pokémon name without context, the worst offender since Generation I. Haywire used three consecutive Shock Wave attacks, which Throw retaliated against with two Binds and a Leer. Emile tossed a Heal Ball, which Throw broke out of effortlessly and then used Bide. Emile tossed a normal Poké Ball, which shook three times, but Throw broke out at the last moment. Finally, Emile threw a Great Ball, which succeeded in catching the Fighting-Type. He then proceeded to give Throw his nickname, teasing him about how people wouldn't know he had one since he just changed one letter.
Not long after catching him, Emile had Throw smash the challenge rock in the outer area of Pinwheel Forest, earning Emile a Star Piece.
Offscreen, Emile deposited Throw in the PC.
