In Mr. Perfect, the Magician gave Blake a pack of wings he had requested from him. In Innocent Scientist, Blake revealed that he had given a Resist Wing and Rare Candy to his Dewott just before heading to battle Genesect, boosting his defenses just enough for him to be able to survive an Electric-type Techno Blast.
