Ludicolo was used during a battle against Sawyer in the quarter-finals of the Lumiose Conference. It was sent to battle against Sawyer's Aegislash. Ludicolo prepared itself by using Rain Dance (which activated its Swift Swim ability), while Sawyer had Aegislash use Swords Dance. Aegislash was about to repeat its move, but got hit by Ludicolo's Hydro Pump. Aegislash attempted to attack by Slash, but Ludicolo repeated its attack and wounded Aegislash, while Ludicolo even taunted Aegislash. Ludicolo repeated its Hydro Pump move, though this time, Aegislash, using King's Shield, protected itself and shifted into Shield Form. Aegislash went back into its Blade Form and used Sacred Sword, which hurt Ludicolo and sent it flying away. Ludicolo attempted to retaliate with Solar Beam, but Aegislash repeated its attack and defeated Ludicolo.
