Woobat was used frequently in Team Rocket's Unova operation in the original Black & White series as well as Rival Destinies, as it was Jessie's only Pokemon. As a result, it became very strong from battles against Ash and his friends.
Unlike James' Yamask, who has been completley replaced by Amoonguss, Woobat was still used, even after Jessie captured a Frillish. It made its Adventures in Unova debut in The Light of Floccesy Ranch!, where it battled Ellie's Amphordos in an attept to steal her Marrep. It damaged Amphordos heavily with Air Slash, and then put them on the ropes with Gust. Amphardos sent out a distress signal, which helped Ellie, Ash, Cilan, and Iris to find them. Ash sends out Snivy to even the score, and stops the Gust assault with an attack from behind with Leaf Blade. After eliminating Iris' Dragonite with Air Slash & Amoongus' Hidden Power, Woobat focuses its gust on Snivy. Amphardos finally musters all of his strength, and defeats Woobat and Amoongus with ThunderPunch, which sends Team Rocket blasting off.
