Personality and characteristics: - Expanding a little
The next day, Professor Kukui, after seeing Ash and Litten training to use {{m|Flame Charge}}, showed up as the Masked Royal with Incineroar. They had a battle where Litten struggled to use Flame Charge, before [[Evolution|evolving]] into {{p|Torracat}}. The battle continued but despite Torracat mastering Flame Charge, Incineroar came out victorious. After the match, the Masked Royal declared Incineroar and Torracat rivals.

In ''[[SM081|A Young Royal Flame Ignites!]]'', Incineroar took part in a battle against [[Mr. Electric]] and his {{p|Electivire}}. Despite Mr. Electric cheating, Incineroar held its own until it was attacked by [[Mad Magmar]]'s {{p|Magmortar}}, resulting in Mr. Electric's disqualification. The Masked Royal and Incineroar were then challenged to another match by Mad Magmar the following day. The next day, they got to the ring just in time, but before the match could begin, Incineroar found itself under attack by the [[Revengers]]' {{p|Poliwrath}}, {{alo|Muk}}, and Alolan {{alop|Golem}}. Annoyed by their cheating, Ash and Torracat teamed up with the Masked Royal and Incineroar but were confronted by [[Viren]], the leader of the Revengers. Viren planned to buy the Battle Royal Dome for it to become a part of the Rainbow Happy Resorts. A tag battle ensued with Ash and Masked Royal going up against Mr. Electric and Mad Magmar and their Electivire and Magmortar. Despite more foul play from the Revengers, the Masked Royal and Ash came out on top. Viren, not willing to give up just yet sent out his {{p|Pangoro}} but a combo move from Incineroar and Torracat sent them flying.
In ''[[SM090|Securing the Future!]]'', Kukui was forced to sent it out to battle [[Gozu]], as his and {{an|Faba}}'s Pokémon had been defeated. It swiftly defeated Gozu's {{me|Aggron}} with {{m|Malicious Moonsault}}, but this also unveiled Kukui's secret identity to Faba. Afterwards, it joined the rest of [[Alola]] in showering {{DL|Light trio (anime)|Necrozma}} with [[Z-Move|Z-Power]] so it could return to its {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Necrozma|true form}}.
In [[SM142]], Incineroar was sent out to battle {{AP|Melmetal}}, which had just defeated Kukui's {{p|Empoleon}}. With its type advantage and formidable strength, Incineroar easily defeated the [[Mythical Pokémon]] before being recalled again.
In [[SM143]], Kukui once again sent Incineroar out to face Torracat. AfterThe two {{t|Fire}} types exchanged attack after attack, and the more damage they toom, the brighter their fires burned. Both sides eventually launched a fiercesimultaneous exchangeInferno Overdrive, which collided in the middle of attacksthe battlefield, includingcreating a massive fireball. Torracat and Incineroar both sidesdove into the fireball for one more exchange of blows, with Incineroar using Inferno{{m|Throat OverdriveChop}} and Torracat using {{m|Revenge}}. After the clash, the two stared each other down for a few tense moments, before Incineroar finally fainted, marking Torracat's first proper victory over its rival.

===Personality and characteristics===
[[File:Kukui Incineroar Gentle.png|thumb|250px|Incineroar's gentle side]]
Incineroar is a tough Pokémon, managing to withstand several attacks at once, and even being able to defeat several Pokémon with a single move. It is charismatic as well, easily winning over a crowd with its powerful and elegant moves. Incineroar's strength was shown once again in ''[[SM090|Securing the Future!]]'', where it was able to defeat [[Gozu]]'s {{me|Aggron}}, a Pokémon that had just defeated three other Pokémon with a single move. Because of its experience in [[Battle Royal]]s, Incineroar is extremely aware in battle and difficult to catch off guard, able to keep an eye on three opponents at once. This experience gave it an advantage in [[SM141]], where it was able to keep up with {{AP|Torracat}}'s {{m|Flame Charge}} after rasing its speed to its limits.
Despite its tough personality, Incineroar has a gentler side. This was demonstrated in ''[[SM092|Turning the Other Mask!]]'', when it allowed two children to hang onto its arms. In that same episode, it also felt bad for making a child cry and falling on top of {{an|Faba}}. Like the Masked Royal, Incineroar is a figher and an entertainer, and is often seen posing with its Trainer while he adresses the crowd. Incineroar treats weaker oppenents like Torracat with respect, but puts eveything it has into each bout.
