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}}.
 
<!--[[PASM33]]-->After returning to Alola, Sun finds Necrozma, who wants to absorb the light energy from the region. Sun sends out his team to attack, but Cent ignores the Prism Pokémon and walks away. Sun asks [[Lillie]] to take him to [[Memorial Hill]] and let him free, as now that they've failed to retake the island Cent feels no obligation to stick around with Sun.

==Personality and characteristics==
[[File:Dollar and Cent.png|thumb|150px|right|Cent and Dollar fighting]]
WhileCent is often seen with a competentbored battler,expression Centon his face and tends to be sluggish and lazy wheneverat whatever he does. While he is a competent battler, he only puts an effort into battling when he knows it will help Sun save up the money to buy back doinghis anythinggreat-grandfather's elseisland. Due to being descended from royalty, Cent is very prideful and will fly into a violent rage if the coin on his head is dirtied. Cent and Dollar have a mutual dislike for one another; if sent out at the same time, they will immediately begin fighting each other instead of the opponent.
 
Cent and Sun have never truly gotten along, nor has he gotten over [[Sun's great-grandfather]]'s death, explaining why he hasn't been able to evolve. He only followed Sun to collect the money to get his former owner's island back, but when that plan failed, Cent lost his sole reason to follow Sun around and obey his orders.
