Mikael used his Watchog in the Unova League against Bianca and her Emboar. Watchog used Hidden Power but Emboar dodged the attack, attacking Watchog with Flamethrower. Watchog proceeded to use Tackle, tackling Emboar to the ground, and used Crunch right after. Emboar stood up and blocked Watchog's Crunch with Arm Thrust. Emboar later used a combination of Arm Thrust and Hammer Arm, defeating Watchog.
