With his Krokorok defeated, Clay sent Palpitoad to battle Ash's Oshawott. Palpitoad managed to counter Oshawott's Water Gun with Hydro Pump and Oshawott's Razor Shell with Sludge Bomb. The latter attack caused Oshawott to be disarmed off its scalchop and was soon defeated by Palpitoad's Rock Smash. To retaliate, Ash sent Snivy, who infatuated Palpitoad with Attract. Palpitoad couldn't execute moves and was hit by Vine Whip and Leaf Blade before fainting to a powerful Leaf Storm.
