Vicious sent his Scizor after Ash and company. It also battled against Ash's Bayleef. Like all of Vicious's Pokémon, Scizor was also caught with a Dark Ball, having its power charged to the highest level. Despite this, Bayleef was able to defeat Scizor with a Razor Leaf-Vine Whip combo. Later, after Vicious was unmasked, Scizor was seen disappearing into the Ilex Forest along with Sneasel, now being freed.
