In Enter Iris and Axew!, while in a cave planning their move, the Team Rocket trio saw a group of Woobat. Jessie caught one off-screen, as was revealed when Jessie called him out to battle Ash's newly acquired Pidove. He was able to defeat the Tiny Pigeon Pokémon with a single Gust as she was already weakened during her battle with Pikachu. He was then defeated by Oshawott's Water Gun after he had worn Pikachu and Axew out.
In A Restoration Confrontation! Part 1, Woobat was used to capture a Tirtouga that Dr. Zager had just resurrected, however it escaped after blowing a hole in the helicopter with Ancient Power. In the next episode, Woobat battled to capture the Prototurtle Pokémon alongside Yamask, until Tirtouga evolved into Carracosta and fled the scene. Woobat later battled Pikachu and Cilan's Pansage as they tied to rescue the captured Carracosta before the time gate at Twist Mountain.
In All for the Love of Meloetta!, Woobat helped uncover Meloetta while Team Rocket were pursuing it. Later in Meloetta and the Undersea Temple!, Woobat confronted Ash and co alongside Yamask so that Team Rocket could steal Meloetta. He battled against Iris's Axew and Cilan's Pansage while Giovanni pursued Ash and Meloetta. Then in the next episode, Woobat and Yamask used their combined attacks to launch Ash of the top of the ancient temple to prevent him from interfering with Operation Tempest.
In Team Plasma's Pokémon Manipulation!, Woobat was used to battle Aldith's Liepard alongside Amoonguss as Jessie, James, and Meowth tried to steal Colress's Pokémon manipulation machine. Eventually Liepard's Shadow Ball veered and hit Colress's machine, releasing Iris's Dragonite and Rhoder's Haxorus which were under his control.
Personality and characteristics
Woobat has shown to have a personality like Jessie as shown in Crisis at Chargestone Cave!, where Woobat was shown to like picking on Pokémon weaker and smaller than himself, shown when he was happy to chase and attack a small Joltik, but in A Fishy Connoisseur in a Fishy Competition! Woobat was weak and frightened when he was about to be hit by Pansage's Bullet Seed and when seeing Cilan's Dwebble evolve.
