Swampert appeared when Morrison introduced it along with his other Pokémon to Ash and his friends. After a day of hard training with Ash, Morrison laid on grass with his Pokémon, including Swampert, to rest a bit. Morrison later used it to battle Ash in the Ever Grande Conference against Ash's Corphish. They both clashed using Focus Punch and Crabhammer, before using Hydro Pump and Bubble Beam. Both were both knocked out by using Focus Punch and Crabhammer against one another.
