In ''[[AG001|Get the Show on the Road!]]'', Ash was willing to take Pikachu for some help in taking care of the illness. [[Professor Birch]] takes Pikachu in to the lab. Even though they were able to strap him to the machine to drain out the overload electricity it received, the machine exploded as the electricity levels were too high. Eventually, when Team Rocket arrived for Pikachu, the mecha they used accidentally cured him of his illness and Pikachu was able to blast them off, destroying {{an|May}}'s bike in the process.
In ''[[AG003|NoThere's no Place like Hoenn]]'', Ash used Pikachu in an unofficial 1-on-1 battle against [[Norman]], since Ash only had one Pokémon at the time instead of the three required. Norman sent out his {{p|Vigoroth}}, which proved to be a tough opponent dodging Pikachu's attacks with ease and hit him hard with multiple {{m|Scratch}} attacks. Pikachu managed to successfully hit Vigoroth with Quick Attack, but Vigoroth hit Pikachu again and defeated him with one final Scratch. After their match, Team Rocket tried to steal Pikachu and Vigoroth but accidentally stole {{TP|May|Torchic}}. Later Pikachu was used alongside Norman's Vigoroth to battle Team Rocket and blasted them off as well as rescuing Torchic.
In ''[[AG013|All Things Bright and Beautifly!]]'', Ash began teaching Pikachu {{m|Iron Tail}} in preparation for his Rustboro Gym battle, a Rock-type Gym, and got help from a Coordinator named {{an|Chaz}} and his {{p|Sentret}}. Despite their effort and training, Pikachu was still unable to fully master Iron Tail.
