For his final Pokémon, Conway sent Dusknoir to battle Ash's Noctowl in the Sinnoh League. Using its Trick Room, Dusknoir was able to gain the advantage, increasing its speed and reducing Noctowl's. It was thus able to avoid Extrasensory, and strike Noctowl with Thunder Punch. Ash returned Donphan to the field, who used Roll Out, but was stopped by Dusknoir's Shadow Punch. Ash attempted to call Donphan, but was locked by Dusknoir's Mean Look.
This prevented Donphan from being returned into its Poké Ball, and was defeated by Shadow Punch. Ash sent Gible out, who used Dig, but was struck by Shadow Punch. Dusknoir repeated its attack, but Gible gnawed on its hand, then launched Draco Meteor. The move threw Dusknoir away, inflicting heavy damage. Despite getting hit by Shadow Punch, Gible defeated Dusknoir with Dragon Pulse.
