Torkoal was brought back to Ash's team in ''[[AG186|Overjoyed!]]'' to battle [[Pyramid King Brandon|Brandon]]'s {{DL|Brandon's legendary golemstitans|Registeel}}, having mastered Heat Wave during its time at Oak's lab. It managed to hit a Flamethrower and a Body Slam, impressing [[Scott]], but failing to do any significant damage to Registeel. Registeel jumped onto the offensive with {{m|Zap Cannon}}, which Torkoal blocked, but after using {{m|Lock-On}}, Torkoal was forced to defend itself with Iron Defense. Torkoal avoided taking too much damage but was {{status|Paralysis|paralyzed}}. Torkoal used Body Slam, and managed to transfer the paralysis to Registeel, preventing Brandon from countering with {{m|Metal Claw}}. Registeel threw Torkoal, but Torkoal used the wall to re-direct another Body Slam.
 
Brandon was impressed but called Ash over-confident. Torkoal unleashed Heat Wave, but Brandon had Registeel break free from the attack and Ash ordered another Flamethrower. Registeel blocked Flamethrower with {{m|Sandstorm}} and trapped Torkoal in the vortex, but Torkoal pushed the sandstorm back onto Registeel with Heat Wave. Torkoal then used the power of the Sandstorm to strengthen its Body Slam. Torkoal remained on top of the battle, but Registeel used Lock-On followed by another Zap Cannon. The explosion broke apart the Sandstorm, and whilst Torkoal seemed to hold on, it collapsed and Ash lost his second match with Brandon.
