Temacu's father was mentioned by Team Rocket when they had the chance to try their operation again. With Temacu gone, her father sent out a search party which included Ash and his friends. While they were searching for his missing daughter, Team Rocket, in disguise, returned Temacu and pretended to be the ones who stopped the kidnappers.After Team Rocket's second defeat, he revealed to the group about Temacu's habit of wanting to get married which was due to the fact that she saw her cousin get married. He then waved his farewells to the group as they headed off to the next town.
