In ''[[SM115|The Dealer of Destruction!]]'', Pikachu battled [[Team Skull]]'s leader [[Guzma]] and his {{p|Golisopod}}. Despite the type advantage, Pikachu was quickly overwhelmed by Golisopod, as he was unable to penetrate the Hard Scale Pokémon's armor even when using his Z-Move {{m|Corkscrew Crash}}. The match ended prematurely when Golisopod returned to its Poké Ball due to its {{a|Emergency Exit}} [[Ability]].
In ''[[SM129|Battle Royal 151]]'', Ash used Pikachu in the [[Battle Royal]] preliminary round of the [[Manalo Conference]] in ''[[SM129|Battle Royal 151]]'', where he was able to defeat various Trainers' Pokémon. Pikachu briefly faced Jessie's Mimikyu before the round concluded, allowing Ash to proceed to the next round. In [[SM137]], Ash used Pikachu in his Manalo Conference semifinals battle against Guzma, where he went up against Golisopod after Torracat was defeated. The two Pokémon were evenly matched, but eventually, Pikachu was leftthe one to remain standing at the end, allowing Ash to advance to the finals.
In [[SM138]], Ash used Pikachu to finish off [[Gladion's Silvally]], who had been worn down by {{AP|Melmetal}}, in the Manalo Conference finals. He then went up against what seemed to be [[Gladion's Lycanroc]], but turned out to be {{p|Zoroark}} in {{a|Illusion|disguise}}. In the [[SM139|next episode]], the two Pokémon clashed and proved to be pretty much equal in strength. When Gladion had Zoroark use {{m|Never-Ending Nightmare}}, Ash countered by having Pikachu use Breakneck Blitz. Both Z-Moves succeeded in connecting with their targets, causing both Pokémon to be knocked out.
