Seeing N was going away with Braviary, Weiss sent Zangoose, along with Schwarz's Seviper, to attack N. Zangoose used Scratch, but N jumped off the cliff with Braviary. After N got out of the Pokémon Center, Schwarz and Weiss sent out their Pokémon again to attack N, who was carrying a Braviary dummy as a decoy. Zangoose, along with Seviper, attacked N, with Zangoose slashing him. Braviary, however, feeling N is in danger, returned back to protect N. Ash and Iris sent Excadrill and Pikachu. Zangoose used Iron Tail on Pikachu, who retaliated with the same move. Zangoose attempted to use Mega Punch, but Braviary's wounds were healed, allowing him to hit Zangoose with Wing Attack and Pikachu to defeat Zangoose with Thunderbolt.
