In Mewtwo Strikes Back
====In ''[[M01|Mewtwo Strikes Back]]''====
While {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} were having lunch at the beginning of the movie, Raymond approached them and asked Ash for a {{pkmn|battle}}. Although Ash had just told his friends that he was too weak to workdo so, he jumped up, ready to battle. In the Japanese version, he statedAsh thatsaid he was just going to have a quick battle before lunch.
Despite Raymond's eagerness, Ash successfully knocked out all five of his {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} in rapid succession. In fact, {{AP|Pikachu}} took out three of those Pokémon in one {{m|Thunderbolt}} when Raymond tried to unfairly gang them up on him. Raymond was stunned by the defeat, such that in the Japanese version, he exclaimed ''"Oh my God!!!"'' in English. The match also caught the attention of {{OBP|Mewtwo|original series}}'s {{p|Fearow}}, and this led to Ash being invited to [[New Island]].
** In the manga adaptation, Raymond instead appears as a direct caricature of his voice actor.
* In [[The Art of Pokémon The First Movie]] and the [[Pokémon the First Movie (graphic novel)|Ani-Manga adaptation of the film]], he is simply named "Pirate Trainer".
* In ''[[M01|Mewtwo Strikes Back]]'', {{AP|Pikachu}} defeated the part {{type|Ground}} {{p|Golem}} with {{m|Thunderbolt}}, which should have had no effect. This error was eliminated in [[M22|the remake]], as Golem was replaced in Raymond's [[party]] by a {{p|Drowzee}}.
