Palmer used Rhyperior against Ash and his Grotle. Due to its Solid Rock ability, it was able to easily endure Grotle's Energy Ball and quickly gained the advantage by increasing its speed with Rock Polish and trapping Grotle in a Sandstorm. However, when it used Megahorn while Grotle was preparing an Energy Ball, it accidentally caused Grotle to swallow its own attack, giving the Grove Pokémon a power boost. Despite this, Rhyperior still managed to defeat Grotle using its signature move, Rock Wrecker.
