Pokémon the Series: The Beginning

He first appeared in the episode Pokémon Paparazzi. He was trying to take a picture of Pikachu at the request of Team Rocket (who were in disguise), and was eventually successful.

Meowth soon revealed that when he saw a magazine article about Todd, he read that Todd was the best at capturing any Pokémon. However, when they saw Todd taking a picture of Pikachu, Jessie and James were initially puzzled before giving Meowth an angry look. A puzzled Meowth turned to the article about Todd, and found out that Todd was actually a photographer and took pictures of Pokémon on film; Meowth had misunderstood the wording in the sentence “the best at capturing Pokémon on film” because he didn’t see the “on film” part (much to the chagrin of Jessie and James).

When Todd asked Team Rocket why they tricked him, Jessie spoke for herself, James and Meowth when she replied that he tricked them first, because they wanted Todd to take the real Pikachu, not its picture (as she put it).

Pokémon the Series: Gold and Silver

Later, he joined Ash and co. in Johto to search for the Legendary Pokémon, Articuno. He joined the heroes when Team Rocket wanted to steal a Sunkern and some Swinub. Lastly, he went to the snow mountain and encountered Articuno, who protected them from Team Rocket. Todd took its picture and decided to remain near the mountain to take more pictures of Pokémon.
