Leeku used his Samurott in a battle against Ash Ketchum and his Tepig. Tepig used Ember on Samurott, which didn't even hurt Samurott at all. Ash then ordered Tepig to use Tackle, in which Leeku ordered Samurott to use Razor Shell to counter it. Tepig was knocked away by the strength of Samurott's Razor Shell but was inmediatly back on its feet when it received some help from Victini. After the power Tepig received from Victini, it used Ember once more, this time succesfully knocking out Samurott, eliminating Leeku from the tournament.
