Mr. Moore used Typhlosion to battle against trainers when he was a Gym Leader of Lavaridge Town. Once Team Rocket tried to escape, Mr. Moore sent Typhlosion, to help Flannery's Slugma in the battle. Jessie's Seviper wounded Typhlosion with Poison Tail, who tackled Seviper in retaliation. Typhlosion used Flame Wheel to burn James' Cacnea and Flamethrower to wound Seviper. Cacnea attempted to attack with Pin Missile but got hit by Typhlosion's Flamethrower. Once Torkoal was returned to Flannery, Flannery's Magcargo and Mr. Moore's Typhlosion used Flamethrower, which blasted Team Rocket away.
