Tucker's challenge consists of a [[Double Battle]], which takes place in the [[Battle Dome]] in front of a large audience. Automatically before the battle, he allows challengers to send in their Pokémon from other locations. Even though {{Ash}} was allowed to do this, he still used two Pokémon from his current [[party]], {{AP|Corphish}} and {{AP|Swellow}}.
Tucker faced off against Ash with his {{p|Arcanine}} and {{p|Swampert}}. Although he was defeated by Ash, he held a strong start for a while with his Pokémon's teamwork and strategy, including the use of the "Fusion of {{t|Fire}} and {{t|Water}}", an advanced combination which involved trapping the opponents in a water and fire whirlwind. Throughout the battle, {{an|May}} was very impressed by Tucker's showmanship skills and noted that his battle with Ash had some similarities to a [[Contest Battle]]. She later adapted his combination technique into her own battling style during the [[Kanto Grand Festival]].

Tucker's strategy is incrediblybased flexibleon drawing out his opponent's best strategies in order to take them down, and he uses the [[Double Battle]] format to create spectacular and damaging [[move]] combinations. He attempts to draw out his opponent's best strategies in order to take them down. Tucker also prefers to attack in quick succession, and is able to have his Pokémon turn one move into another, such as seen when he turned Arcanine's Flamethrower into a {{m|Fire Blast}}. A challenger must have their Pokémon work in sync and use a gap in Tucker's timing to overcome him in battle.
He is undoubtedly the most famous [[Kanto]] [[Frontier Brain]], and his battles are known to attract the attention of the media. A press conference is held whenever he has a new challenger.
