BioWhile Wobbuffet is technically Jessie's Pokémon, it has been around so long that it has become a main character, appearing in almost every episode of the series since it debut.
Wobbuffet rarely battles but when he does, his Counter and Mirror Coat moves have proved to be very effective. Unfortunately, Jessie's tactics aren't always sufficient to master Wobbuffet's superior defensive skills.
Wobbuffet also randomly comes out of his Pokeball, especially during the Team Rocket motto. He is also seen blasting off with Jessie regardless if he was actually part of the action.
Trade meet in Leaf TownWobbuffet was first seen walking around with Benny, his previous trainer. While looking for trade partners, Ash called Benny's Wobbuffet "the greatest Sonansu in the world!" and a really obedient and nice Pokémon. Ash and his friends managed to convince an Odoshishi Trainer but just as they were about to trade, the Odoshishi Trainer decided that he wanted a flying Pokémon instead. Jessie landed near the official trade station after James and the Magikarp Salesman came running through. Benny wanted to trade his Wobbuffet for a stronger Pokémon but Jessie accidentally traded her Lickitung for Benny's Wobbuffet after her Poké ball fell out of her pocket and onto the machine and she picked up the wrong Poké ball.

|Move||Type||First Episode Used||Notes|
|Counter||JOHTO 30||Chikorita's Vine Whip ended up hitting itself and Takeshi stated that it's Counter is incredibly powerful.|
|Bide||JOHTO 51||"Gaman" is the original name for the move Bide, which Sonansu can't learn, though it's also the name of its species. The animation does look like the move. It only used this move in this episode and never again.|
|Mirror Coat||JOHTO 58||Already knew the move before this episode as its based on game moveset. Musashi just didn't know Sonansu knew the move.|
