Rowlet debuted in ''[[SM004|First Catch in Alola, Ketchum-Style!]]''. A flashback revealed that Rowlet had been born into a flock of {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Pikipek}}, led by a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Toucannon}} and {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Trumbeak}}. Later, it joined its flock to gather fruit from a town on [[Melemele Island]]. Rowlet mistook a wind chime for food, and brought its bounty to its nest, only to be scolded by Trumbeak that evening and being sent back to gather more.
In ''[[SM075|Some Kind of Laziness!]]'', Ash went to see {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Bulu}} so it could help train for a rematch with [[Nanu]]. After agreeing to help, Tapu Bulu used its powers to make several large trees grow instantly before resting on them to absorb their energy. When Rowlet decided to roost on the trees, it absorbed some of the trees' energy as well, causing it to learn {{m|Razor Leaf}}.

In ''[[SM090|Securing the Future!]]'', Rowlet joined the rest of Alola in showering {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Necrozma}} with light so it could return to its {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Necrozma|normal form}}.
Rowlet also seems to be a very relaxed Pokémon, as shown in ''[[SM005|Yo, Ho, Ho! Go, Popplio!]]'', when it spent most of the episode not being bothered by what was going on around it, whether that included being splashed by water or being kidnapped by Team Rocket. Rowlet is often seen sleeping during the day, only waking up when it is needed by someone else, such as its Trainer. This character trait was shown in ''[[SM009|To Top a Totem!]]'' and ''[[SM035|Currying Favor and Flavor!]]'', when Ash called Rowlet out to battle against a Totem Pokémon and its ally, only to find it sleeping, in need of awakening. In its time as a wild Pokémon, it was even seen nodding off while being lectured by its caretaker, {{p|Trumbeak}}. However, in ''[[SM029|Lulled to La-La Land!]]'', Rotom noted that Rowlet shouldn't be sleeping so much. Rowlet has been show to sleep through almost anything, such as during battles and whilst being buried under sand, as shown in [[SM109]]. Despite this, it is loyal towards its friends, and would do anything to protect them. Rowlet and Ash quickly bonded after meeting each other. Due to its naivety and inexperience, Rowlet tends to panic when it gets separated from Ash; however, this shows its closeness to Ash. Its closeness to its Trainer was also shown when it would sit or sleep on Ash's head, although it would also sometimes sit on Ash's shoulders.

Rowlet likes roosting and sleeping in Ash's backpack, and even doesn't mind having company inside the bag as well, which was mainly shown with [[Nebby]] and Meltan. Like other members of its species, Rowlet is capable of flying silently, as first shown in ''To Top a Totem!''. In the same episode, it took a chance by fighting against the Yungoos without being commanded. Additionally, in ''Currying Favor and Flavor!'', it was shown instinctively protecting Litten from getting hit by a {{m|Water Gun}}. These situations have shown that it's an independent and quick thinking Pokémon. In ''[[SM010|Trial and Tribulation!]]'', Ash noticed this and used its ability to get the upper hand over [[Hala]] and his {{p|Crabrawler}}. Rowlet is also seen as a fast flyer as shown in ''[[SM036|Trials and Determinations!]]'' when it was able to dodge a Z-Move with Rockruff in tow. Rowlet has been shown to be easily startled, as shown in ''[[SM016|They Might Not Be Giants!]]'', where it was cowering in fear from the presence of a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Stoutland}}, despite the fact that Stoutland was only licking it out of affection. It was also shown to be happy at the thought that Ash would be brought to tears of joy after it reunites with its Trainer and at the thought of {{TP|Lana|Popplio}} being scolded by {{an|Lana|its Trainer}}.
