In ''[[BW123|Farewell, Unova! Setting Sail for New Adventures!]]'', [[Professor Juniper]] sent Scraggy to [[Professor Oak's Laboratory]] before Ash left for [[Kanto]], touring through the [[Decolore Islands]]. He was brought back to Ash's team prior to ''[[BW131|The Path That Leads to Goodbye!]]''. In the episode, Scraggy became very upset at Axew's absence after Ash and Iris had fallen out. He set off with Pikachu to find them before being captured by {{TRT}} and subsequently rescued by Iris. Scraggy later returned to Oak's lab in ''[[BW142|The Dream Continues!]]'' where he reunited with the entire Unova team. Scraggy joined in with them to launch a group attack on Team Rocket, using Focus Blast to send them blasting off for the final time in the {{series|Best Wishes}}. Scraggy 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:Ash and Scraggy.png|right|250px|thumb|Scraggy and Ash]]
From the moment he hatched, Scraggy has been shown to be a headstrong Pokémon who views new Pokémon as opponents. He will Leer at his potential opponents to show his toughness before trying to Headbutt them. His overconfidence often gets him into trouble as he believes he is much stronger than he actually is. This was best evidenced in ''[[BW017|Scraggy-Hatched to be Wild!]]'', when he took on a whole group of {{p|Galvantula}} by himself; and in ''[[BW032|Facing Fear with Eyes Wide Open!]]'', when he took on a group of angry {{p|Foongus}}. A stubborn Pokémon, Scraggy will not give up on trying to defeat an opponent even if he is injured. Despite disliking to do so, he knows when to accept help from his friends and Trainer. He is also shown to care about those who he considers his friends. This is shown in both ''[[BW029|Cottonee in Love!]]'' and ''[[BW043|Meowth's Scrafty Tactics!]]'', when Ash tried to recall him to his [[Poké Ball]], but he didn't want to go in because he wanted to help his new friends on both occasions.
In ''[[BW055|Scraggy and the Demanding Gothita!]]'', his relationship with Axew was shown to have become strong. Numerous training battles had led the two to become best friends. Both being very young, they are quite playful together, akin to human children.
