Trip was revealed to have caught it in BW034:Ash and Trip's Third Battle!. He used it to try and catch a wild Palpitoad and later in the episode it battled Ash's Tepig. Iris has also been shown to be scared of Ice-types so she has terrified look on her face whenever she sees Vanillite. Vanillite was also seen in a flashback in BW106 when its Blizzard tied with Tepig's Flame Charge. According to the editor's opinion, he thought Vanillite was his 2nd strongest Pokemon since the 3rd battle between Ash and Trip, after his Serperior, as a Servine.
