Meowth made his debut in the anime in ''[[EP002|Pokémon Emergency]]''. Alongside Jessie and James, they set their sights on the injured Pokémon in the [[Viridian City]] [[Pokémon Center]]. As the two sent out their {{TROBP|Ekans|Team Rocket}} and {{TROBP|Koffing|Team Rocket}} from their [[Team Rocket's mechas|Meowth balloon]], they quickly overtook the Pokémon Center, which only had [[Nurse Joy]], {{Ash}} and {{an|Misty}} inside. Before they could steal any of the Pokémon, however, [[Ash's Pikachu]], who teamed up with many other {{p|Pikachu}} in the Pokémon Center, used an electric attack, causing the entire Pokémon Center to explode. It was here that Team Rocket vowed to capture Pikachu, deeming Ash's one as an exceptionally powerful Pokémon, making it their lifelong goal to capture him.
In ''[[EP014|Electric Shock Showdown]]'', after hearing that Pikachu would fight to defend his own honor and Ash's, the trio were inspired to cheer on Pikachu before his rematch against {{gy|Vermilion}} [[Gym Leader]] [[Lt. Surge]]'s {{TP|Lt. Surge|Raichu}}.
