Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl

Maylene made her debut when she decided to quit the Gym after she lost her Gym Battle with Paul and her confidence. She ran away from her duties. Dawn felt the same way she did and inspired her not to give up. She then requested that she have a Gym Battle with her.[1]

Maylene had her battle with Dawn. The plan for Dawn was to lose yet give it her all to get Maylene's confidence back. When the first battle began Maylene copied the moves her Pokémon used as she was giving the orders to do so (She said and did a Drain Punch attack just as her Meditite did). She knocked out her Buneary but lost to her Piplup. Maylene then pointed out that Dawn treated the battle like she did a contest. During the battle between Piplup and Lucario, Maylene was starting to get back in synch with her Pokémon. She beat Dawn and got her confidence back.[2]

She later had her Gym Battle with Ash. However, this battle ended in a draw, but Maylene felt so good that she thought Ash deserved the Cobble Badge.[3]
