In the anime
Ramos made his debut in Thawing an Icy Panic!. He first appeared with his Gogoat, after Clemont accidentally broke the gate to his Grass-type garden. After an angry Vanillish and Vanilluxe created a snowstorm after they heard Vanillite's wail, as it was captured by Team Rocket, Ramos searched Coumarine City for the cause. After Gogoat rescued Ash from the angry Pokémon, the Vanillish and Vanilluxe, he used his Jumpluff and used Sunny Day to stop the snowstorm and then he had multiple Sunflora used Solar Beam to destroy the snow. Then the Vanillish and Vanilluxe, as well as the Vanillite Team Rocket had previously stolen from the Pokémon Center were captured by their mecha, he used his Gogoat along with the help of Ash and his friends Pokémon to destroy the mecha, and Ash and his friends Pokémon sent Team Rocket blasting off, the three captured Pokémon were rescued and went off happily. Later he went back to the Coumarine Gym, and Clemont correctly deduced that he was the Gym Leader. In his debut, Ramos lectured Ash on the importance of not only facing challenges head-on, but sometimes taking the "side road" as well. He demonstrated this by using Jumpluff and Sunflora to melt the snow rather than attack Vanillish and Vanilluxe, and later by using Gogoat's attacks to immobilize Team Rocket's machine rather than trying to immediately destroy it. He had a Gym battle against Ash in The Green, Green Grass Types of Home! and lost. He reappeared in Under the Pledging Tree!.
- Ramos's Japanese Leader title is いまなお 花を咲かす 老樹.
