Excadrill in the anime

Iris's Excadrill

Excadrill debuted in The Bloom Is on Axew! under the ownership of Iris. It is a powerful Pokémon. When it first appeared, Excadrill was disobedient. However, in Iris and Excadrill Against the Dragon Buster!, the cause of the disobedience was discovered. When Iris battled Drayden with Excadrill, it was defeated by his Haxorus. The major loss changed him from an obedient and happy Pokémon to a disobedient one. After some training with Iris, Excadrill became obedient once again.

Major appearances

An Excadrill appeared in BW061 under the ownership of Clay. It defeated Ash's Snivy in a Gym battle, but was later defeated by Ash's newly-evolved Boldore.
