[[Ash Ketchum (EToP)|Ash]]'s Butterfree appears in the {{pkmn|manga}} series [[The Electric Tale of Pikachu]]. Like in the anime, he is one of Ash's first Pokémon, however, he is the second wild Pokémon that Ash captures in the manga, the first is {{AP|Fearow}}.

Ash's Butterfree first appears and is captured as a {{p|Caterpie}} in ''[[ET01|Pikachu, I See You!]]''. Heand evolves into {{p|Metapod}} at the beginning of ''[[ET02|Play Misty For Me]]'' when Ash is showing off all of his Pokémon to {{an|Misty}}. Later in the same chapter, during Ash's Gym battle against Misty, Metapod evolves into Butterfree.
Ash's Butterfree is seen again in ''[[ET03|Clefairy Tale]]'' battling a wild {{p|Onix}} and in ''[[ET04|Haunting My Dreams]]'' battling the [[Black Fog]], but he is not used again after that. He may have been released like he was in the anime, however, no scenes implying this are shown in the manga. Butterfree is not shown when Ash brings his entire [[party]] out of their {{i|Poké Ball}}s in ''[[ET08|You Gotta Have Friends]]''.
