====As a wild Pokémon====
Krookodile made his first appearancedebuted in ''[[BW003|A Sandile Gusher of Change!]]'' as a Sandile, where he was revealed to be the leader of a group of Sandile who lived near a local spa resort. He and the group caused trouble at the spa resort on {{rt|1|Unova}} so that they could get the attention of the owners. He was actually trying to save the other Pokémon in the area because he knew that a geyser would soon erupt. With the help of {{Ash}}, {{an|Iris}}, and the son of the spa resort owner, [[Dan]], Sandile was able to save the Pokémon. In the end, Sandile was shown to have gained respect for Ash, and as such, began to follow him.
Sandile appeared again inIn ''[[BW012|Here Comes the Trubbish Squad!]]'', where heSandile wanted to battle {{AP|Pikachu}}. He randomly attacked with Stone Edge, despite there being small children close by. He was sent blasting off by a wild {{p|Trubbish}}'s {{m|Sludge Bomb}} and Pikachu's {{m|Iron Tail}}.
Sandile reappeared inIn ''[[BW020|Dancing With the Ducklett Trio!]]'', separatingSandile separated Ash from the group in order to battle Pikachu again. However, a wild {{p|Ducklett}} stole his sunglasses and stopped the battle. Sandile was deeply saddened without his sunglasses, losing his usual confidence and becoming quite cowardly. With Ash and Pikachu's help, he defeated the Ducklett and reclaimed his sunglasses. Later, after being healed at the [[Pokémon Center]], Sandile finally got the battle he wanted with Pikachu. Sandile dominated the battle to start with and eventually [[Evolution|evolved]] into Krokorok. Pikachu soon gained the upper hand however, and sent Krokorok blasting off when his {{m|Electro Ball}} attack collided with Krokorok's Stone Edge, causing the stones to hit Krokorok and send him flying.
After a long absence, Krokorok returned at the end of ''[[BW064|Explorers of the Hero's Ruin!]]'' with the same goal of defeating Pikachu in battle. In the [[BW065|following episode]], he battled against Pikachu, and ended up causing the two of them to go flying. He was later found by Ash, and helped them locate Pikachu. It was revealed that Krokorok had followed them through various locations, including [[Nimbasa Town]] and [[Nimbasa City]], in order to have a rematch with Pikachu. He also followed them through [[Chargestone Cave]], where he was shown to be the cause of a pen being stuck in the {{p|Klinklang}} in ''[[BW063|Evolution Exchange Excitement!]]''. Krokorok later allowed Ash to use him to help {{OBP|Mick|BW065}} learn to battle, and he eventually teamed up with Pikachu under Mick's command in a [[Double Battle]] against [[Sean]]'s father's {{p|Seismitoad}} and {{p|Scolipede}}, where the duo eventually won. Krokorok then got the chance to battle Pikachu like he had wanted for so long, and after a hard-fought battle, Pikachu emerged victorious. Krokorok was depressed by the loss and begun to leave, when Ash invited him to join their team. Krokorok happily agreed, and was caught by Ash in a [[Poké Ball]].
In ''[[BW078|Guarding the Guardian of the Mountain!]]'', Ash chose Krokorok for some special training with [[Brycen]] and his {{p|Beartic}}. When the training began, Krokorok and Ash had problems on following Brycen and Beartic's techniques, especially when they had to jump down a waterfall and Krokorok refused to, due his fear of water. Later, Krokorok was used in a battle against [[Pokémon poacher]] [[Rizzo]] in an attempt to free the guardian, {{p|Volcarona}}, of the mountain they were training on. He battled a {{p|Jellicent}} and was hit by a super effective {{m|Hydro Pump}} after missing with Crunch. Regardless, Krokorok got back up and landed several hits on his opponent with Stone Edge before using Crunch again, though it was deflected. Krokorok attempted Crunch from a different angle, only to receive a painful hit from Jellicent's {{m|Hex}} attack. Persevering, Krokorok avoided his opponent's {{m|Confuse Ray}} with Dig and finally landed an effective hit with Crunch on the {{type|Ghost}} Pokémon. Krokorok tried another Crunch, only to be stopped by Hex again, though he dodged Confuse Ray with Dig and hit Jellicent with Crunch, as he did before. Rizzo then brought out a second, female, Jellicent which hit Krokorok with her Confuse Ray. Krokorok was then hit by a double Hydro Pump and sent into Rizzo's cage along with Volcarona. He and the Sun Pokémon were eventually rescued by Brycen and Beartic.

In ''[[BW079|Caution: Icy Battle Conditions!]]'', Krokorok was pumped up for the upcoming Gym battle and accompanied Ash to the Gym outside of his Poké Ball. He started off battling Brycen's {{p|Vanillish}}, and began with a Crunch, but was halted by Vanillish's {{m|Astonish}}. After the collision of Stone Edge and {{m|Icicle Spear}}, Vanillish launched a {{m|Blizzard}} that {{status|froze}} Krokorok while he was attempting to dodge with Dig. After being knocked while frozen by {{m|Mirror Shot}}, Ash recalled Krokorok, though the Mirror Shot thawed him. He was later sent out to battle against Beartic. Krokorok's Stone Edge was deflected by Beartic's defensive {{m|Icicle Crash}}, causing the Stone Edge to hit Krokorok and then Krokorok's Crunch was countered by {{m|Ice Punch}} freezing his mouth. Krokorok narrowly escaped a super-effective {{m|Brine}} by using his tail to jump onto an ice pillar, climbing it, this enabled him to shake off the ice, then finally landing a direct hit with a super effective Stone Edge whilst mid-air. Krokorok was then able to land a direct hit with Dig; however, this allowed Beartic the chance to grab him by the tail and throw him across the battlefield into a large mound of ice. However he then broke free. Seeing the broken ice made Ash think of Stone Edge and gave him an idea. Ash then ordered a Stone Edge attack that was deflected again by Icicle Crash. However, Krokorok jumped up and grabbed two of the stones, charging down from the air with the Stone Edge in hand to meet Beartic's Aerial Ace. After the collision, Beartic was knocked out, leaving Krokorok the victor and winning Ash the {{badge|Freeze}}.
