no edit summary
In ''[[BW002|Enter Iris and Axew]]'', Oshawott used his [[Scalchop and seamitar|scalchop]] to rescue [[Ash's Pikachu]] and [[Iris's Axew]] from the clutches of {{TRT}}. He later battled [[Jessie's Woobat]] briefly before Team Rocket escaped.
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 [[{{i|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 ''[[BW111|There's a New Gym Leader in Town!]]'', Oshawott volunteered himself to battle [[Cheren]]'s {{p|Herdier}}. Oshawott's Hydro Pump attack was dodged easily by his opponent and his Tackle was overpowered by {{m|Take Down}}. Though Oshawott was able to block Herdier's {{m|Thunder Fang}} with Razor Shell, Cheren and Herdier were able to outsmart him and knock away his scalchop, distracting him before he was hit by a super effective Thunder Fang and got knocked out.
Oshawott came out of his Poké ballBall in ''[[BW118|Secrets From Out of the Fog!]]'' to help Pikachu and Axew convince the Pokémon at {{an|N}}'s house to trust Ash and co. He later helped to battle [[Barret]]'s {{p|Magnezone}}.
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.
===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 [[{{i|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.
Oshawott acts proud and is a little boastful, but sometimes he can't back it up. He acts a little dramatic when things go wrong, or when he doesn't get his way. Like Ash's Aipom again, he seems to be a bit hyperactive. Oshawott also takes care of his scalchop, as he panics whenever he loses it and when he threw it down in anger in ''[[BW020|Dancing With the Ducklett Trio!]]'', he was happy afterwards when he picked it up and found out he hadn't done any major damage to it. He also gets very angry when someone steals his scalchop, as shown in ''[[BW017|Scraggy-Hatched to be Wild!]]'', when [[Ash's Scraggy]] took his scalchop. He is also shown to be quite lazy sometimes, as shown in ''[[BW015|The Battle According to Lenora!]]'', when he didn't want to battle Lenora's Watchog after just being sent out by {{m|Roar}}.
