His coronation was officially held in 1989, and he began courting Kimmy Yule later that year. The two had a child, but while Kimmy was pregnant Kingsley fell in love with her best friend, Emmeline Fountain.
Emmeline died during childbirth, causing Kingsley to spiral into a depression. Blake was abducted by Team Shi on the day of his birth, and sent to the Pokemon World.
Kingsley was first seen on a news channel in an interview with the press, who he informed that he was going to solve the Team Shi issue once and for all by utilising the power of the Pokemon World. The reason for this was later revealed to be because Kingsley had received information that his son had been located on the Indigo Channel, defeating the Indigo League.
The king arranged for the most intelligent people in Ienzo to create Kuronkopies and develop a way to bring people from the Pokemon World to their world. He also created an Indescribable League to test the heroes, who he called "Sai Iki", using the Kuronkopy technology.
He worked together with these scientists and they finally managed to get hold of Blake Sullivan's Palkia, who they used to transport Blake and Barras to Lore. However, the king's control over Palkia was limited and a slight error caused Barras to be sent to Pluto Town rather than Milky Way Castle.
Blake pretended to be unconscious upon arriving in Lore, and this was finally uncovered when the Shi Slayers arrived to greet the king. Kingsley told them about Blake's past and the story of Team Shi and told them to take the Indescribable League challenge.
After Team Shi was taken down, he joined the Sai Iki Parents' Alliance and put forward his knowledge about Brown's Shinri Sonomono to help with the crisis of the Aftermath Arc. He also gave the Sai Iki members their own houses in Lore.
Kingsley owns the following Kuronkopies:
- All of Kingsley's Pokemon contain the word "king".
