In ''[[BW073|Commanding the Clubsplosion Crown!]]'', Sawk faced {{an|Bianca}}'s {{TP|Bianca|Emboar}} in the semi-final round of the Clubsplosion. He was able to defeat the Mega Fire Pig Pokémon with a dual Karate Chop attack which advanced Stephan to the final round where he would face Montgomery's Throh. Before the final round though, Sawk and his Trainer got to enjoy a special meal made for them put together by Cilan. At last the time for the final round came and Sawk met Throh on the battle field. Sawk started the battle off but Throh kept blocking his attacks. Each time Throh attempted to use a throw attack on Sawk, he would always regain his posture before he would hit the ground. It seemed that Throh finally had Sawk with {{m|Bind}} but he was able to escape it by using Bulk Up followed by Close Combat. Throh tried using {{m|Seismic Toss}} in a last ditch effort to bring down Sawk. Though he escaped, both Pokémon crashed to the ground taking serious damage. Throh got back up first and was going to use Bind on the still downed Sawk. Responding to Stephan's encouragement, he managed to at least sit up with his back facing Throh. When he got too close Sawk turned around and unleashed one final Close Combat. Throh remained standing afterwards but Sawk bowed his head then turned around, knowing the match was over. The Judo Pokémon fainted right after that. Stephan was now the Clubsplosion champion and Trainer and Pokémon hugged one another to celebrate their victory.
In ''[[BW105|Lost at the League!]]'', Sawk was seen defeating a {{p|Gurdurr}} and winning Stephan's third round battle of the [[Vertress Conference]]. In ''[[BW106|Strong Strategy Steals the Show!]]'', Sawk was used as Stephan's final Pokémon when he went up against {{Ash}}. Sawk's first opponent was {{AP|Leavanny}} where he proved himself to have grown even stronger than during the Clubsplosion, managing to defeat the Nurturing Pokémon despite his {{a|Swarm}} [[Ability]] being activated, managing to dodge Sawk's initial moves easily and using his powerful {{m|X-Scissor}} attack. Sawk's next opponent was [[Ash's Krookodile]], which had already suffered damage earlier in the match while battling with Stephan's {{p|Liepard}}. The battle was close-fought, however Sawk was defeated by Krookodile's newly learned, super effective {{m|Aerial Ace}}, which eliminated Stephan from the competition.
