Conway used Hercross in the Tag Team Tournament against Ash Ketchum and Paul. It fought alongside Dawn's Buizel who it seemed to be quite friendly with. Ash's Chimchar used Flamethrower on Heracross, while Paul's Elekid used Thunder on Buizel. However, Buizel's Aqua Jet negated Chimchar's attack, whereas Heracross stood in Elekid's way to endure its Thunder attack. This allowed Heracross to use Revenge and inflict massive damage on Elekid. As Chimchar used Dig, Elekid used Protect to defend itself from Aqua Jet, but Heracross' Feint bypassed the defenses and hurt Elekid. Buizel went to use Water Gun, but was hit by Chimchar's Dig, so Buizel used Aqua Jet for a quick retaliation. As Elekid failed to use Thunder Punch to prevent damage from Heracross' Megahorn, it evolved into an Electabuzz. Heracross went to use Megahorn to prevent its Thunder attack. Since Chimchar evaded Buizel's Water Gun, it used Flamethrower on Heracross, badly burning it, while Electabuzz used Thunder on Buizel. The force of these two attacks defeated Buizel and Heracross.
