The Gold Teeth appeared in Fuchsia City. Satoshi first heard of them from the Safari Zone Warden's assistants. Later, while exploring the Safari Zone, Satoshi fished up a Dratini, which a Fisherman asked Satoshi to trade for him in exchange for the numerous Water Pokémon he had caught. At first, Satoshi was hesitant, but when he saw the Gold Teeth inside one of the Fisherman's Poké Balls, he accepted the offer. He later took the dentures back to the Warden, restoring his ability to speak properly.
