In ''[[PASM10|Defeat and the Commander of the School of Fish]]'', Cent was used in Sun's first trial, which was to fight against the [[Totem Pokémon]] of [[Brooklet Hill]], a {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Wishiwashi|School Form}} {{p|Wishiwashi}}. Due to its immense size and strength, the Totem Wishiwashi was a tough opponent. Cent managed to defeat it after Sun instructed it to hit Quarter, the main Wishiwashi located in the left eye. After dodging its attacks, Cent closed in on Quarter's location and attacked it. The attack forced the Totem to separate back into its component Solo Form Wishiwashi, giving Sun the victory.
 
In [[PASM19]], Cent, along with the rest of Sun's team, helped rescue Moon from an attacking {{p|Xurkitree}} at [[Po Town]]. By combining their attacks, they managed to knock Moon from Xurkitree's grasp, though Xurkitree immediately retaliated by smacking them away onto a nearby car.
 
In [[PASM20]], Cent was used alongside {{FB|Salon Maiden|Anabel}}'s {{p|Mismagius}} to battle a {{p|Blacephalon}} that had been summoned to Po Town. Cent slashed at Blacephalon and appeared to decapitate it, only for the Fireworks Pokémon to reveal it is capable of safely detaching its head at will. Cent managed to distract Blacephalon long enough for Mismagius to stun it with {{m|Phantom Force}}, allowing Anabel to try and capture it, only to fail. Blacephalon attempted to counterattack with its {{m|Mind Blown}}, but was blown away by {{p|Tapu Bulu}}'s {{m|Whirlwind}}, saving everyone in the process.
 
In [[PASM29]], Cent was used alongside the rest of Sun and Moon's teams to assist [[Nebby|Lunala]] against {{p|Necrozma}}, but was stopped by [[Lusamine]]'s {{p|Naganadel}}.
