In ''[[EP063|The Battle of the Badge]]'', Ash had Pikachu attack Team Rocket and their Pokémon after they sent out Arbok and Weezing to attack during their Gym battle. Using Thunderbolt, Pikachu hit all the opposing Pokémon at once, causing {{p|Machamp}}, Rhydon and {{p|Kingler}} to run away in fear, and defeating Arbok and Weezing. After Team Rocket got blasted off, Ash got his eighth Gym Badge, the {{badge|Earth}}.
Pikachu made friends with another Pikachu, [[nickname|named]] [[Puka]] in ''[[EP067|The Pi-Kahuna]]"''. This particular Pikachu had blue eyes, and was an excellent surfer. Ash and his friends had to save both Pikachu when Team Rocket tried to steal them both using their submarine.
Ash used Pikachu many times during the [[Indigo Plateau Conference]]. In ''[[EP076|Fire and Ice]]'', Pikachu fought against [[Pete Pebbleman]]'s powerful {{p|Arcanine}}. Pikachu started off using Agility to confuse Arcanine, but this strategy was countered by Arcanine, who melted the ice field using its Fire Blast, causing to whole battlefield to become one big pool of water. Pikachu, however, used this to his advantage by using the water to conduct his electricity and managed to defeat Arcanine with a powerful Thunderbolt.
