[[Dr. Wiseman]] was trying to capture the Noctowl using traps rather than [[Poké Ball]]s, but each time Noctowl outwitted him and escaped the traps — usually leaving him hypnotized in the process. After Ash rescued it from [[Team Rocket]], Ash had {{AP|Pikachu}} battle it and he captured it, adding it to his team.

In the special episode ''[[SS004|Showdown at the Oak Corral]]'', Noctowl was seen on a branch and spotted [[Cassidy]] and [[Butch]] when they where breaking into Oak's Lab. It appeared later when it was showing {{Tracey}} and {{AP|Bayleef}} the way to Cassidy and Butch's helicopter. It was also seen in the Christmas special where it helped {{p|Delibird}} to retrieve its presents.
Noctowl reappeared in ''[[DP182|An Old Family Blend!]]'', alongside Ash's other Pokémon. In ''[[DP185|Working on a Right Move!]]'', Ash used Noctowl in his battle with [[Conway]] in the [[Lily of the Valley Conference]]. It put up a strong fight against Conway's {{p|Shuckle}}, {{p|Lickilicky}} and {{p|Dusknoir}}, showing that it had learned three powerful new moves during its time away from Ash at Oak's lab: {{m|Extrasensory}}, {{m|Air Slash}} and {{m|Sky Attack}}. Ultimately, however, after putting up a great battle against Conway's Shuckle and defeating his Lickilicky, it fell to Conway's Dusknoir and its powerful {{m|ThunderPunch}}.
