Christopher used his Kingdra in the Whirl Cup against Ash Ketchum and his Totodile. Totodile dove into the water and Kingdra used Twister, trapping Totodile in the whirlpool Kingdra created with Twister. Kingdra then used Water Gun but Totodile was able to dodge the attack. Kingdra used Hydro Pump but Totodile was able to dodge that attack also. Totodile used Skull Bash and Kingdra was able to evade the attack by diving into the water. Kingdra emerged from the water and wanted to use Hydro Pump but Totodile bit its mouth, preventing the attack. Totodile released the mouth after Kingdra got filled with water and Kingdra flew around the stadium, spitting water. Kingdra fell down into the water, being defeated.
