Ninjask was shown being captured in a flashback, only minutes before Paul captured Chimchar.
It was later revealed Paul still had his Ninjask as he chose it to battle Ash and his Gliscor. Using its incredible speed, which was augmented by Agility and its special ability, Speed Boost, Ninjask almost defeated Gliscor, but Ash recalled the Fang Scorp Pokémon and replaced it with Infernape. Despite Ninjask's speed, Infernape eventually managed to anticipate its movements, despite taking some damage earlier in their battle and knock it out with Mach Punch.
