In [[SM131]], it was revealed that {{an|Lana}} would be Guzma's opponent in the second round. In [[SM134]], Guzma and Lana began their battle, with Guzma using Golisopod against [[Lana's Primarina]]. With his ruthless tactics, Guzma was able to defeat Lana with relative ease and advance to the semifinals. The match-ups revealed that he would battling Ash in the semifinals. In [[SM135]], Guzma assured his Grunts that he would destroy the entire League and brushed off Plumeria's concerns about him facing Ash.
In [[SM136]], Guzma went up against Ash, using his Scizor to battle his {{AP|Torracat}}. He quickly recalled Scizor in favor of using Golisopod, only for Golisopod to activate Emergency Exit during the match and send Scizor out in its place, resulting in it being quickly defeated by {{m|Fire Blast}}. Angered by Golisopod's cowardice, Guzma sent it out again and berated it on having made Scizor lose. The battle continued in [[SM137]], during which Guzma finally started to realize his own cowardice by defeating only weak opponents and running away from battles against strong ones. Despite the stregnth of Ash's Pikachu, Golisopod still wanted to continue battling, but the battle ultimately led to Guzma's loss. The audience applauded for the great battle and Kukui hoped to see Guzma participating next year as well, but Guzma considered his reputation ruined and was ready to disband Team Skull, but Plumeria and the Team Skull Grunts were so fired by the battle that they wanted stay by his side and learn to battle as well as he.
