Ash's Charizard appeared in ''[[SP33|Off To The Battle Frontier!!]]'' of the [[Ash & Pikachu]] manga. It was excited to see Ash when he called it over as it was sent for training earlier. After arrival, Ash sent it out to battle [[Noland's Articuno]]. During the battle, it struggled to keep up with Articuno despite the type advantage due to the fact that Articuno's speed was quicker than Charizard's in terms of reflexes. However, Charizard focused in on where Articuno was going to strike next and defeated it, earning Ash the Knowledge Symbol.

[[Ash Ketchum (EToP)|Ash]]'s Charizard makes a few appearances in the {{pkmn|manga}} series [[The Electric Tale of Pikachu]]; however, the circumstances of its capture seem to differ in this series. While [[Damian]] appears in ''[[ET07|Pikachu's Excellent Adventure]]'', he was separated from his Charmander because he was injured, not because he abandoned it. At the end of the chapter, the two reunite in the [[Hidden Village]].
Despite this difference, Ash is still seen owning a Charmander, which first appears in ''[[ET08|You Gotta Have Friends]]''. Charmander's capture is not shown in the manga, instead, it is explained that "Ash has been busy since the last comic!" when Charmander first appears from its [[Poké Ball]]. Charmander is first seen when a lonely Ash decides to play with his other Pokémon while {{AP|Pikachu|Pikachu (EToP)}} is off playing with a group of Pikachu. Charmander simply sets Ash on fire while his {{p|Oddish}} {{status|paralysis|paralyzes}} him with {{m|Stun Spore}}.
