In the battle against Team Magma, Shelly sent Crawdaunt, along with other grunts' Crawdaunt. They attacked with Bubble Beam, but were quickly defeated by Tabitha's Mightyena's Hyper Beam.
After arriving to the Weather Research Institute, Shelly sent Crawdaunt to intimidate the scientists. Bart tried to have Castform fly off with the access card Team Aqua needed, so Shelly had Crawdaunt use Bubble Beam on Castform. Castform got hit, but used Weather Ball on the Crawdaunt before flying through the air vents. Once Millie was shown to be a Team Magma spy, Brodie, Shelly had Crawdaunt use Bubble Beam, but Brodie's Ditto transformed itself and counterattacked, allowing Brodie to fly off. Without further ado, Shelly called Crawdaunt back and flew off in her helicopter with her team.
