For his first Pokémon, Brycen sent Vanillish against Ash's Krokorok. Krokorok attempted to crunch Vanillish, who used Astonish, making Krokorok flinch. Using Icicle Spear, Vanillish hit Krokorok, whose Stone Edge attack was negated. Krokorok attempted to dig, but its tail got frozen by Vanillish's Blizzard. As Krokorok attempted to shatter the ice, it got hit by Vanillish's Mirror Shot. Instead, Ash swapped Krokorok with his Scraggy. Scraggy started with High Jump Kick, but Vanillish dodged, causing Scraggy a lot of recoil damage. Vanillish also dodged its Headbutt attack, making Cilan suspect Vanillish just tries to ridicule Scraggy by floating in air. Vanillish used Icicle Spear, but Scraggy pulled its "pants" on, causing no damage. Vanillish released a Blizzard, though Scraggy used Focus Blast on Vanillish, hitting it badly. With a Headbutt, Scraggy defeated Vanillish.
