It battled against Ash's Meltan
in the top 16 of the Alola League. Faba
thought it was Ash Ketchum
's weakest Pokémon, so it got Hypno to use Psychic to cheat and select its Poké Ball for Ash before the match started but Ash was fine with the selection. Meltan ended up eating Faba's Hypno
's coin to stop its Hypnosis and finished it off with a Flash Cannon to give it the match victory.
