Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire

He befriended an Articuno at some point, which he used to battle Ash's Charizard. He flies with Articuno every night in his plane. He is an aviator and he fails every time, which is the reason why he has befriended Articuno. He was on one of his nightly flights and he saw a bird Pokémon hurt; that bird Pokémon was falling down from the sky. He realized that bird Pokémon was Articuno and he had to save it. So he made Articuno fly on his wing and saved Articuno. Articuno liked him and they became friends. His assistant at the factory questioned him why he did not catch Articuno, but Noland has never given him a proper answer.
