[[File:Juniper Oshawott.png|thumb|left|250px|Oshawott's debut appearance]]
Oshawott originally belonged to [[Professor Juniper]], as one of the three [[starter Pokémon]] a new [[Pokémon Trainer]] could choose. Ash said he was cute when he was sent out in ''[[BW001|In The Shadow of Zekrom!]]'' and it blushed, when [[Trip]] had to decide between the three starters. Oshawott was extremely shocked when Trip chose {{p|Snivy}}, but quickly got over it and started taking interest in Ash; observing him but staying out of sight, and to the point that he left Professor Juniper's lab to follow him.
 
Oshawott was revealed to be male when he battled a wild female {{AP|Snivy}} that would be caught by Ash in ''[[BW007|Snivy Plays Hard to Catch!]]''. He became infatuated when hit by Snivy's {{m|Attract}}, and was eventually recalled.

In ''[[BW010|A Rival Battle for Club Champ!]]'', he was used to fight against [[Trip]]'s {{p|Tranquill}}. He was defeated by two quick and consecutive hits of {{m|Aerial Ace}}, due to Tranquill's {{a|Super Luck}} Ability, which increased Tranquill's chance of inflicting critical hits.
 
In ''[[BW024|Emolga the Irresistible!]]'', Oshawott developed a crush on a wild {{TP|Iris|Emolga}}. When she used {{m|Attract}} on [[Bianca's Minccino]], Oshawott voluntarily jumped in the attack's path so he could get hit with it instead. Later on, he decided to go up against a group of {{p|Swoobat}} to protect Emolga. However, he was soon defeated by a powerful {{m|Charge Beam}}. On both occasions, Ash was forced to recall Oshawott to his Poké Ball. Later in ''[[BW025|Emolga and the New Volt Switch!]]'' he valiantly protected Emolga and Axew from some wild Watchog and retrieved them an apple each, however, a wild {{p|Simisear}} knocked him out, despite Emolga hardly caring.
 
[[File:Oshawott no scalchop.png|thumb|240px250px|left|Oshawott without his scalchop]]
In ''[[BW028|Oshawott's Lost Scalchop!]]'' Oshawott battled against [[Stephan]]'s {{p|Blitzle}}, where his scalchop ended up getting kicked out of his hands and off into the distance. Horrified, Oshawott chased after it but, alas, he could not find it. After many failed substitutes, [[Cilan's Dwebble]] crafted a new scalchop out of a nearby rock but it ended up being too big and too heavy for Oshawott. Ash then trained him, giving Oshawott the strength to carry the new scalchop. Unfortunately, it ended up being destroyed during a rematch with Blitzle, but Oshawott turned out to be much faster because of all the training and was able to defend himself without a scalchop. He soon defeated Blitzle with a lucky-shot {{m|Aqua Jet}} that sent them both crashing into a boulder. After the battle, Axew found the missing scalchop in the forest and returned it to Oshawott.
 
 
In ''[[BW061|Battling the King of the Mines!]]'', Oshawott was Ash's first Pokémon in his [[Driftveil Gym]] battle against Clay, he went up against his {{p|Krokorok}}, Oshawott used Aqua Jet but Krokorok used Dig causing him to crash into a wall, Krokorok then used {{m|Sandstorm}} knocking back Oshawott and creating a {{weather|Sandstorm}}, blinding Oshawott as he got sand in his eyes, Krokorok then hit him with its {{m|Bite}}, he then attempted to use Razor Shell but was blinded again causing the attack to go nowhere, after being hit by a powerful {{m|Stone Edge}}, Ash got Oshawott to use Water Gun on the field stopping the Sandstorm and getting the sand out of his eyes, allowing him to see. Krokorok used Dig but Oshawott aimed Water Gun into the hole, dealing damage and forcing Krokorok to emerge, he then used Aqua Jet to hit Krokorok and defeated the Desert Croc Pokémon with his Razor Shell. He then went up against {{p|Palpitoad}}, which was more powerful than Ash's Palpitoad, Palpitoad used Hydro Pump while Oshawott used Water Gun, but his Water Gun was easily overpowered by Hydro Pump causing him to crash into a wall, he then went for a Razor Shell but was countered by {{m|Sludge Bomb}}, hitting Oshawott and separating him from his Scalchop, this distracted him, allowing the Vibration Pokémon to defeat Oshawott with his {{m|Rock Smash}}.
[[File:Dawn Piplup and Ash Oshawott.png|thumb|220px250px|Oshawott and his rival, Dawn's Piplup]]
In ''[[BW085|All for the Love of Meloetta!]]'' he met {{an|Meloetta}} and subsequently fell deeply in love with it. To his excitement he was left to watch over it, while Ash and Pikachu left to get more ice. From nowhere, Emolga, who had brought an Oran Berry for Meloetta, crashed into Oshawott and the two began fighting. They calmed down when Ash and co returned and Meloetta began to sing. subsequently in ''[[BW086|Piplup, Pansage, and a Meeting of the Times!]]'', he fell for [[Dawn's Buneary]], but soon forgot her when she embraced Pikachu and Meloetta revealed herself. When [[Dawn's Piplup]] fell for Meloetta just as Oshawott had before him, Oshawott attacked him with Aqua Jet, upset to see Piplup and Meloetta getting along, sparking a rivalry. In the [[BW087|next episode]], when the gang were surrounded by {{p|Onix}} and Meloetta appeared frightened, both he and Piplup heroically battled the Onix. Eventually, when surrounded by the Onix again, Oshawott learned Hydro Pump to fight them off. In ''[[BW093|Goodbye, Junior Cup - Hello Adventure!]]'', Oshawott confronted Piplup over Meloetta one more time before Piplup and {{an|Dawn}} left for [[Johto]], their contempt soon turned into sadness and they bid a teary farewell.
 
 
==Personality and characteristics==
[[File:Oshawott avoiding.png|thumb|240px250px|Oshawott trying to avoid a battle]]
Oshawott's behavior is similar in a way to many of Ash's past Pokémon, notably {{AP|Aipom}} and [[Ash's Bayleef]] as a {{p|Chikorita}}, often attention-seeking and sometimes interfering. This was first shown in ''[[BW003|A Sandile Gusher of Change!]],'' when he wanted to travel with Ash, he jealously knocked Pikachu off Ash's shoulders and pretended that he was as close as Ash was to Pikachu. Then, when Ash was at the Pokémon [[Battle Club]] in ''[[BW004|The Battle Club and Tepig's Choice!]]'' battling another Trainer, he came out of his [[Poké Ball]], even though Ash had already clearly chosen Pikachu. However, he promptly changed his mind to battle when he realized that his opponent was {{p|Dewott}}, a Pokémon of his own evolved form. He has done this many other times, which also shows that Oshawott loves to battle, but only against opponents he thinks he can win against.
[[File:Ash Pignite and Oshawott.png|thumb|240px|left|Oshawott's rivalry with Pignite]]
Oshawott acts proud and is a little boastful, but sometimes he can't back it up. He acts a little dramatic when things go wrong, or when he doesn't get his way. Like Ash's Aipom again, he seems to be a bit hyperactive. Oshawott also takes care of his scalchop, as he panics whenever he loses it and when he threw it down in anger in ''[[BW020|Dancing With the Ducklett Trio!]]'', he was happy afterwards when he picked it up and found out he hadn't done any major damage to it. He also gets very angry when someone steals his scalchop, as shown in ''[[BW017|Scraggy-Hatched to be Wild!]]'', when [[Ash's Scraggy]] took his scalchop. He is also shown to be quite lazy sometimes, as shown in ''[[BW015|The Battle According to Lenora!]]'', when he didn't want to battle Lenora's Watchog after just being sent out by {{m|Roar}}. He also seems to be a little flirtatious, as seen in ''[[BW024|Emolga the Irresistible!]]'', where he fell in love with a wild {{TP|Iris|Emolga}} and in ''[[BW044|Purrloin: Sweet or Sneaky?]]'', where he fell in love with a {{p|Purrloin}} that he thought was female. In ''[[BW051|Lost at the Stamp Rally!]]'', he was enamoured with the dancers at a [[Pokémon Musical]], wandering down to the stage, despite Ash telling him not to. He was briefly in love with a {{p|Vanilluxe}} during ''[[BW081|Crisis at Ferroseed Research!]]'', until she froze his head. He also fell for a {{an|Meloetta}} in ''[[BW085|All for the Love of Meloetta!]]''. In [[BW086|the following episode]], he was enamoured by [[Dawn's Buneary]], until he found out she liked Pikachu. He would always get very jealous whenever another Pokémon is flirting with the Pokémon he likes as seen when {{MTR}} fell in love with Purrloin and [[Dawn's Piplup]] flirts with Meloetta.

He is also shown to be quite gluttonous, occasionally stealing food from friends and strangers. He mostly did this to {{AP|Pignite}} beginning in ''[[BW004|The Battle Club and Tepig's Choice!]]'' when Pignite was a Tepig and continued even after Tepig evolved. This type of action even started a rivalry between the two Unova starters in ''[[BW066|Baffling the Bouffalant!]]'' and ''[[BW098|Beauties Battling for Pride and Prestige!]]'' when they started fighting. Other instances included when Oshawott was eating berries belonging to Beartic and Cubchoo in ''[[BW046|The Beartic Mountain Feud!]]'' and consuming some apples belonging to {{p|Garbodor}} and {{p|Trubbish}} in ''[[BW105|Lost at the League!]]''. He shows little hesitation in doing so and no regret afterwards, until he is caught, usually causing trouble for Ash and the other Pokémon. Sometimes Oshawott can pop out of his Poké Ball whenever he wants to battle, help out Ash and friends or do something else.
