In the anime

Noctowl first apeared in Fowl Play. A man was trying to capture a Shiny, midget Noctowl by using traps, but kept failing due to the Owl Pokémon's intelligence. After Team Rocket was sent flying, the Noctowl allowed Ash to have the chance to capture it.

Ash's Noctowl was used very much like his Pidgeotto, but it also had access to Psychic attacks such as Confusion which contribute greatly to Ash's victory against Morty. Ash left his Noctowl at Prof. Oak's lab when he set out for the Hoenn Region.

When it needs to think, it rotates its head 180 degrees to sharpen its intellectual power.
Pokémon Crystal
Its extremely soft feathers make no sound in flight. It silently sneaks up on prey without being detected.
Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire
Noctowl never fails at catching prey in darkness. This Pokémon owes its success to its superior vision that allows it to see in minimal light, and to its soft, supple wings that make no sound in flight.
