==HistoryIn the anime==
====At Professor Juniper's LaboratoryUnova====
=====At Professor Juniper's Laboratory=====
[[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 an interest in Ash; observing him but staying out of sight, and to the point that he left Professor Juniper's lab to follow him.
Eventually, Oshawott expressed interest in traveling with Ash and convinced him to take him along on his {{pkmn|journey}} in ''[[BW003|A Sandile Gusher of Change!]]''. Ash only realized that he was Professor Juniper's Oshawott when he failed to capture him in a new [[Poké Ball]], and had to obtain a worried Professor Juniper's approval to allow Oshawott to travel with him and to request for Oshawott's Poké Ball. She permitted Oshawott to travel with Ash, but Oshawott had disappeared by the time Ash received his Poké Ball. After nearly falling into boiling hot water, Ash saved Oshawott by successfully returning him to his Poké Ball.
=====With Ash=====
In ''[[BW005|Triple Leaders, Team Threats!]]'', Oshawott was used as Ash's third Pokémon in his battle against the [[Striaton Gym]], battling against {{an|Cilan}} and his {{TP|Cilan|Pansage}}. This surprised Iris, who thought he should use a {{type|Flying}} like {{AP|Pidove}} instead. Though initially confident, he got scared by Pansage and had to be pushed into battle, but was convinced by Ash to battle Pansage. His Tackle was dodged and was hit by Pansage's {{m|Bullet Seed}}, he was bitten on the head by {{m|Bite}} and while running, crashed into a wall. He used multiple Water Gun attacks but they were all dodged execpt the last one. Oshawott was shown to be tired while attacking. Pansage then proceeded to use {{m|Solar Beam}} and then fired it at Oshawott. In ''[[BW006|Dreams by the Yard Full!]]'', Oshawott used its Scalchop to deflect Solar Beam, surprising everyone. He then deflected Pansage's Bullet Seed with his scalchop as well, he then went for a Razor Shell, but Pansage countered with Bullet Seed knocking his scalchop, he then used Bullet Seed to prevent Oshawott from retrieving his Scalchop. Cilan then performed an evaluation, criticizing Ash and his Oshawott, but praising his Pansage in comparison. Ash then had Oshawott use Water Gun of a wall, bouncing it across rocks, hitting his Scalchop and throwing it into the air, Oshawott then caught it and hit Pansage with Razor Shell. Then his Razor Shell went up against Pansage's Bite, knocking out the Grass Monkey Pokémon and earning Ash the {{badge|Trio}}.
In ''[[BW121|Team Plasma and the Awakening Ceremony!]]'', Oshawott was sent out alongside the rest of Ash's team to help Ash and N dig up to the surface of the {{an|White Ruins}} after they had fallen into a pit. While battling Team Plasma, Oshawott dealt massive damage to two controlled {{p|Golurk}} with his Hydro Pump attack. However, when Colress turned his mind control machine on them, Oshawott was quickly recalled to his Poké Ball along with Ash's other Pokémon, save for Pikachu.
====Decolore Islands====
In ''[[BW126|Crowning the Scalchop King!]]'', Oshawott competed in the [[Scalchop King Competition]] on [[Scalchop Island]]. He had a rivalry with Caesar, a {{p|Dewott}} owned by [[Cadbury]], as both fell in love with Osharina, who was the Scalchop Queen of the island. Both competitors made it to the final round of the tournament, where they battled against each other. After a long battle, Oshawott managed to defeat Caesar. Despite Oshawott's win, Osharina rejected him in favor of Caesar. Oshawott's scalchop broke soon after, disqualifying him from the tournament.
Oshawott was reunited with the entire Unova team at [[Professor Oak's Laboratory]] in ''[[BW142|The Dream Continues!]]''. He joined the others in a group attack on Team Rocket with his Hydro Pump to send them blasting off for the last time in the {{series|Best Wishes}}. Oshawott later posed in a group photo with the rest of Ash's Pokémon. Then, he was left at the lab when Ash set off for the Kalos region.
===Personality and characteristics===
[[File:Oshawott avoiding.png|thumb|250px|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.
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.
