Pokémon Masters Animated Trailer

In the Pokémon Masters Animated Trailer, Cheren teamed up with Korrina and Misty to battle Pokémon Champions Cynthia, Steven Stone, and Lance at a stadium in Pasio. He ordered Stoutland to attack with Giga Impact, but it was knocked back by Cynthia's Garchomp's Dragon Claw.


Stoutland is Cheren's only known Pokémon. Alongside Korrina's Lucario and Misty's Starmie, it battled Cynthia's Garchomp, Steven's Metagross, and Lance's Dragonite. Stoutland tried to hit Garchomp with Giga Impact, but Garchomp defended itself with Dragon Claw and knocked it back, forcing Lucario to try and catch it, but this backfired and both Pokémon were incapacitated. After Starmie protected it and Lucario from Dragonite's Hyper Beam, Stoutland defended itself from Metagross's Flash Cannon with Crunch.

Stoutland's known moves are Giga Impact and Crunch.
