XY005 9

Surskit dodging Ash's Pikachu's Iron Tail.

Surskit was the first Pokémon that battled Ash's Pikachu in Santalune City's Gym. Surskit used Protect to counter Pikachu's attacks and circled around him, freezing the battle field with Ice Beam. Pikachu couldn't move properly on the ice, giving Surskit a great advantage, since it could slide on the terrain very easily. Pikachu hit Surskit with Iron Tail, who used Signal Beam to defeat Pikachu. Ash sent his new Fletchling; Surskit used Ice Beam and missed Fletchling, so it used Sticky Web before being defeated by Razor Wind. However, the effect of Sticky Web caused Fletchling to be trapped and defeated by Viola's Vivillon.[1]

XY006 10

Ash's Pikachu using Iron Tail on Surskit.

After a day of training, Ash came back to Santalune City's Gym to battle Viola once more, sending Pikachu against Surskit. Surskit started out with Sticky Web, covering the field. Pikachu used Thunderbolt, which Surskit countered with Protect. It managed to freeze the battle field with Ice Beam, but Pikachu, due to the training he went through, planted his tail into the ice. To finish the battle, Pikachu used Thunderbolt, countering Surskit's Signal Beam and defeating it.[2]

Surskit later battled against Grant's Onix, for Viola's title of Grand Duchess. Surskit managed to freeze Onix's tail, who used its force to break out. Surskit used Bubble Beam on Onix, who missed it using Rock Tomb]. Surskit used Signal Beam against Onix's Flash Cannon, then started sliding around Onix. Onix used Rock Polish, boosting its speed. Surskit used Ice Beam to freeze Onix's tail, but Onix broke out of the ice once more and defeated Surskit with Flash Cannon and Rock Tomb.[3]
