Absol was used in Magnus' battle against Diantha and her Gardevoir. Absol charged in with Bite but Gardevoir dodged the attack. When Magnus saw Gardevoir again, he ordered his Absol to use Quick Attack but that attack missed as well. Absol kept using Quick Attack but it kept missing to land the attack on Gardevoir. Absol then used Psycho Cut and Gardevoir countered the attack with Shadow Ball. Shadow Ball went right through Psycho Cut and landed on Absol. After being hit, Absol used Perish Song. However, before Absol was able to finish the attack, it was hit by Gardevoir's Moonblast, knocking Absol out.
