In ''[[BW077|Evolution by Fire!]]'', while eating with the other Pokémon in the Battle Club, Tepig recognized his previous Trainer, Shamus. Upon seeing him, Tepig happily ran over to Shamus, believing that he would be happy to see him. However, when Shamus threw Tepig at Ash and called him a useless Pokémon, he was very disheartened. Being angered by Shamus's actions, Ash accepted Shamus's challenge of a [[Double Battle]], pitting Tepig against his former Trainer's {{p|Emboar}} and {{p|Heatmor}} the next day. That night Tepig sat alone outside the Battle Club and got very upset while recounting his abandonment. Snivy slapped him with {{m|Vine Whip}} and talked sense into him, as they were preparing for the battle in the morning. Despite Snivy's encouragement, when faced with battling his estranged Trainer, he froze up and was unable to launch any attacks. Though Tepig had thought that abandoning him was a very hard thing for Shamus to do, he was crushed when Shamus revealed he was relieved to get rid of him. However, after watching his friend Snivy take two powerful hits when she was distracted with encouraging him further, Tepig finally hit both of his opponents with a powerful Flame Charge. However, Emboar and Heatmor were able to take the attack and on Shamus's command launched a {{m|Flare Blitz}}/{{m|Fire Spin}} combination move. Making no attempt to dodge, Tepig was pushed out of the way of the attack by his partner Snivy, who took major damage and was knocked out. Tepig became as motivated as his Trainer and Snivy continued to show faith in him, as he [[evolution|evolved]] into {{p|Pignite}}. With his new power, Pignite used {{m|Fire Pledge}}, impressing both his former and current Trainer and dealing major damage to Emboar and Heatmor. With a final Flame Charge attack, Pignite was able to knock out both of his opponents. After the battle, Shamus talked to Pignite, saying he was impressed with his new power, and asked him to rejoin the team, but Pignite refused, scorching his previous Trainer's face with a Flamethrower and sending him running away in anger.

In ''[[BW079|Caution: Icy Battle Conditions!]]'', Pignite battled [[Brycen]]'s {{p|Cryogonal}}. The match started with Pignite's Flame Charge being blocked by {{m|Reflect}} and him being hit by fast {{m|Rapid Spin}}, unable to hit the speedy Cryogonal. After enduring Cryogonal's {{m|Frost Breath}}, Pignite was able to land a direct hit with Fire Pledge, stopping Cryogonal's Rapid Spin and knocking it out. Pignite next went up against Brycen's {{p|Beartic}} where his Flame Charge was stopped by Beartic's {{m|Brine}}. Pignite was soon knocked out after a powerful {{m|Icicle Crash}} and unavoidable {{m|Aerial Ace}}.

In ''[[BW084|Rocking the Virbank Gym! Part 2]]'', Ash sent out his Pignite as his fourth Pokémon during his Gym battle with [[Roxie]], facing her {{p|Scolipede}}. Despite her part {{type|Bug}} Pokémon being at a type disadvantage against Fire types, Roxie stood calm. Pignite started by trying a Flame Charge, which was blocked by Scolipede's {{m|Screech}}. The Megapede Pokémon next attacked with {{m|Sludge Bomb}}, which was also blocked by Pignite's Flamethrower, causing a big explosion and a cloud of smoke. Using the smoke to his advantage, Ash had Pignite use another Flame Charge, hitting Scolipede and dealing a lot of damage. As Pignite tried to finish the match with another Flamethrower, Scolipede dodged and used {{m|Toxic}} on Pignite, {{status|poison|badly poisoning}} him. However, Pignite was able to go on and unleash a Fire Pledge on Scolipede, defeating it. Roxie then gave Pignite a [[Pecha Berry]], curing him of the poison before sending out her strongest Pokémon, {{p|Garbodor}}. The Trash Heap Pokémon was able to use its extendable arms to dodge Pignite's Flame Charge before hitting the Fire Pig Pokémon with {{m|DoubleSlap}} and doing the same again to dodge a Flamethrower. Pignite then used Tackle on Garbodor's arm, causing it to fall over. Pignite was about to use Fire Pledge, but Garbodor extended its arm under his hand, preventing him from using the move, grabbing him, and tossing him to the floor. After getting hit by a few DoubleSlap attacks, Pignite was finally able to unleash his Fire Pledge attack, but Garbodor countered with a {{m|Hyper Beam}}, which went right through Fire Pledge and hit Pignite, knocking him out.

In ''[[BW107|Cameron's Secret Weapon!]]'', Ash used Pignite in his [[Vertress Conference]] battle against {{un|Cameron}}, sending him out against his {{p|Hydreigon}}. Pignite started the battle with his new {{m|Brick Break}} attack, which was super effective against the {{t|Dragon}}/{{type|Dark}} Pokémon. Hydreigon countered by attacking with {{m|Dragon Pulse}}, which scored a direct hit. After narrowly dodging Pignite's Flamethrower, the Brutal Pokémon scored a pair of powerful hits with a {{m|Tri Attack}} and a {{m|Dragon Rush}}. Despite of this, Pignite was still able to fight back, and served his own pair of powerful strikes with Brick Break and Flame Charge, before dodging Hydreigon's {{m|Double Hit}}-counterattack. Next Pignite used Fire Pledge, forcing Hydreigon to take flight in order to avoid it, allowing him to land a direct hit on it with a Flamethrower. Ash then commanded Pignite to serve the finishing blow on his weakened opponent with Brick Break. Although Hydreigon tried to counter with a Double Hit, Pignite easily avoided it and served the super effective strike on the Brutal Pokémon, finishing it off. Cameron's next Pokémon was {{p|Ferrothorn}}. After avoiding Ferrothorn's {{m|Metal Claw}}, Pignite was hit by a {{m|Pin Missile}}. Despite the fact that Pignite was starting to get weak, he was still able to fire a super effective Flamethrower on the {{t|Grass}} and {{type|Steel}} Pokémon. Although Ferrothorn tried to attack back with {{m|Mirror Shot}}, Pignite was easily able to dodge it and strike with Flame Charge, finishing the Thorn Pod Pokémon. Cameron then sent out his third Pokémon, {{p|Samurott}}. Pignite stood no chance against the Formidable Pokémon, which first countered the Fire Pig Pokémon's Flamethrower with a super effective {{m|Hydro Cannon}}, and then knocked him out with an equally powerful {{m|Aqua Jet}}.

Inn[[BW118]] it was sent out to fight a {{p|Magnezone}} that belonged to {{un|Brad}} of [[Team Plasma]]. [[Cilan's Pansage]] also battled Magnezone, but when its {{m|Bullet Seed}} collided with Magnezone's {{m|Magnet Bomb}} there was an explosion, which caused the seeds to backfire and strike Pignite, knocking it out.

In the next episode, Pignite wasn't feeling well and would not eat its food, much to Ash's concern. It had trouble breathing through its nostrils. {{OP|Iris|Axew}} noticed that there was something blocking it. Ash encouraged it to jump up and down to try and loosen the blockage, but this didn't work. Ash decided to use his {{TP|Ash|Charizard}} to help. It took Pignite into the air and spun it round, then released it. He was not happy with this at all. Pignite was about to crash into the ground, but Charizard picked it up before it could hit it. Iris then had an idea: To make Pignite sneeze the blockage out. Using some grass to tickle his nose, Pignite then sneezed out two seeds. It was realised that, when the bullet seeds from battling Team Plasma backfired, two of them must have accidentally  gone up Pignite's snout. With its snout unblocked, Pignite felt normal again and used a flamethower to show it was happy.
