During the conference of the Gym Leaders on Indigo Plateau, Falkner had his Noctowl battle Janine's Grimer. Grimer used Minimize, followed by Sludge Bomb, which hit Noctowl. Noctowl responded by using Foresight, which nullified Grimer's evasiveness. Instead, Janine called Grimer back and sent Ariados. Noctowl went to attack, but was trapped into Ariados' Spider Web, followed by String Shot and Leech Life. With Noctowl nearly fainted, Falkner swapped it with his Skarmory.
