The next day, Pikachu was stolen by {{TRT}}. With Charizard now trusting him after the lengths he had gone to while trying to help him, Ash successfully rescued Pikachu. Tad, seeing what happened, asked Ash if he was ready for the rematch. Ash accepted, and was able to defeat Tad's Poliwrath with Charizard, thanks to knocking Poliwrath off its feet and subsequently used its trademark {{m|Seismic Toss}} attack.
Tad told Ash that he hoped to meet him in the [[Orange League]], but he has not been seen since. However, he made a cameo appearance in a flashback in ''[[BW116|The Fires of a Red-Hot Reunion!]]'', when Ash remembered the time he battled Tad with his Charizard.
