'''Stephan's Sawk''' (Japanese: '''ケニヤンのダゲキ''' ''Kenyan's Dageki'') is the second {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} [[Stephan]] was revealed to have on hand. He made his first appearance in ''[[BW041|The Club Battle Hearts of Fury: Emolga VS Sawk!]]''

Sawk debuted in ''[[BW041|The Club Battle Hearts of Fury: Emolga VS Sawk!]]''. He was first used during the [[Club Battle]] tournament in where he battled against [[Iris's Emolga]]. Sawk proved a troublesome opponent for Emolga, as he could use his {{m|Close Combat}} to block Emolga's {{m|Attract}}. Stephan had stated that since Sawk is an [[Gender|all male species]], he trained him specifically to defend himself against gender based attacks. However, when attacking Emolga, her {{a|Static}} Ability kicked in, paralyzing Sawk. When Emolga launched a barrage of Attracts, Sawk was forced to block them all with Close Combat, lowering his defenses gradually. Eventually, Sawk's paralysis rendered him immobile, allowing Emolga to defeat him with a single {{m|Volt Switch}}.
In ''[[BW069|Climbing the Tower of Success!]]'', Stephan entered a competition for the [[Wishing Bell Festival]] and chose Sawk as his partner. His Trainer attempted to take his belt from him for the scavenger hunt portion of the contest as the item he needed was a {{i|Black Belt}}. However, he did not give it up so easily. Later, he cosplayed as [[Nurse Joy's Audino]] for the dress-up portion of the contest which helped the two get through to the next portion. During the final portion, he helped deflect the attacks of the Pokémon trying to blow out Stephan's Litwick candle as the two climbed [[Mistralton Tower]]. Thanks to their teamwork, and a little help from {{p|Litwick}}, Stephan was able to win the contest.
True to his species norm, Sawk is a dedicated fighter and always takes a {{pkmn|battle}} seriously. Outside of battle, Sawk is usually calm and collective even when watching other Pokémon battle as seen in ''[[BW070|The Clubsplosion Begins!]]''. He seems to be protective of his black belt as he wasn't so willing to give it to Stephan for the scavenger hunt portion of the [[Wishing Bell Festival]] contest, though he most likely could've given in later on in order to help out his Trainer because when the scavenger hunt portion ended, Stephan had a black belt with him. He doesn't seem to mind acting or dressing up as he looked quite content dressed as [[Nurse Joy's Audino]] and did a good imitation of it for another portion of the same contest.
Sawk can also become flustered when he feels another Pokémon is being disrespectful towards him, as seen in ''[[BW070|The Clubsplosion Begins!]]''. when Montgomery's Throh bumped shoulders with him. Despite his tough front, Sawk is also patient and kind to friends of his Trainer. He allows {{an|Bianca}} to admire his strength and show affection to him, and has no problem embracing Stephan in a hug during times of celebration. He is very respectful when he is battling, as shown in ''[[BW073|Commanding the Clubsplosion Crown!]]'', when he bowed to Throh prior to him passing out. He meditates just prior to every battle, as he comes out of his {{i|Poké Ball}}.
