Seeing how strong Raticate was, Ash challenged the Gentleman to a battle, using his {{AP|Butterfree}} against Raticate. Butterfree easily endured and dodged all of Raticate's attacks, and then {{status|paralysis|paralyzed}} it with {{m|Stun Spore}}. Before Ash could order the finishing move, however, the Gentleman called off the battle, saying that it was a draw, although Ash was close to winning.

Later Ash told {{an|Misty}} about how he was still uncertain if the Gentleman would take care of Butterfree the way he did, and was thinking if he even did the right thing by trading it partyaway.
