Jessie's Frillish is the second Pokémon that Jessie obtained in the Unova Region. Jessie's Frillish debuts in "BW111: New Places... Familiar Faces!", debuting with James' Amoonguss when Team Rocket attacked Ash and his friends for the first time since their "Operation Tempest" and temporary retreat back to Kanto. When Ash, Iris, and Cilan were helping a rookie trainer named Nanette get her new Tepig some experience, Team Rocket came out of nowhere to capture Ash's Pikachu and Nanette's Tepig, but got defeated by Ash's Unfezant.
