BW025 17

Ash's Swadloon defeats Whirlipede with Tackle.

With his Dwebble being defeated, Burgh sent Whirlipede against Ash's Sewaddle. Sewaddle used String Shot to navigate itself and avoid Poison Sting attack. Sewaddle attempted to use String Shot on Whirlipede, who rolled itself to negate the attack. Whirlipede countered Sewaddle's Razor Leaf and hit it with Steamroller. Sewaddle tried to use Bug Bite, but Whirlipede protected itself with Iron Defense. Sewaddle endured Steamroller and Solar Beam attacks, then evolved into a Swadloon. Swadloon used String Shot to affect Whirlipede, who negated the move with Steamroller. Swadloon tried to dodge, but its String Shot was cut by Whirlipede's Steamroller. By quickly using Energy Ball and Tackle, Swadloon defeated Whirlipede.[1]
