As he has done in every other [[region]] he has traveled in before, Ash often catches a {{type|Flying}} Pokémon early in his {{pkmn|journey}}. Indeed, Pidove was caught soon after Ash's arrival in Unova. In ''[[BW002|Enter Iris and Axew!]]'', shortly after a flock of Pidove had escaped when Ash had failed to capture one of them, he noticed her pecking at the ground, and engaged her in a battle. She managed to put up a good fight against [[Ash's Pikachu]], until the {{t|Electric}} Mouse Pokémon used his powerful {{m|Iron Tail}} and {{m|Thunderbolt}} attacks, which caused her to faint. Ash threw a [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}} and successfully caught her. Later on, for the first time, Pidove was sent out in an effort to save Pikachu and [[Iris's Axew]] from {{TRT}}'s capture. However, as she was still weak from her battle with Pikachu, she was quickly defeated by [[Jessie's Woobat]]'s powerful Gust attack. She was later healed at the [[Pokémon Center]], along with Pikachu and Axew.
Pidove was occasionally used by Ash to find and track certain Pokémon. She helped Ash find two {{p|Darumaka}} in ''[[BW008|Saving Darmanitan From the Bell!]]'' and a wild {{AP|Snivy}} in ''[[BW007|Snivy Plays Hard to Catch!]]'', playing a dominant role in the {{t|Grass}} Pokémon's capture. At the time, Pidove had followed Snivy throughout from the time she escaped using {{m|Leaf Storm}}. As she witnessed all of Ash's other Pokémon (Pikachu, {{AP|Oshawott}} and {{AP|Tepig}}) fall to the Grass Snake Pokémon's {{m|Attract}}, she volunteered to battle Snivy. When Snivy attempted to use Attract on Pidove, Pidove was unaffected as she was female (a fact of which Ash had been completely unaware of, despite Iris and Cilan's assumptions that it was his strategy). After a hard-fought battle, Pidove weakened Snivy enough for her to be captured by Ash.
