Ash's Pikachu

3 bytes added, 10 February
In ''[[EP063|The Battle of the Badge]]'', Ash had Pikachu attack Team Rocket and their Pokémon after they sent out Arbok and Weezing to attack during their Gym battle. Using Thunderbolt, Pikachu hit all of the opposing Pokémon at once, causing {{p|Machamp}}, Rhydon and {{p|Kingler}} to run away in fear, and defeating Arbok and Weezing. After Team Rocket got blasted off, Ash got his eighth Gym Badge, the {{badge|Earth}}.
Ash used Pikachu many times during the [[Indigo Plateau Conference]]. In ''[[EP076|Fire and Ice]]'', Pikachu defeated [[Pete Pebbleman]]'s powerful {{p|Arcanine}}, but in ''[[EP077|The Fourth Round Rumble]]'', he was defeated by [[Jeanette Fisher]]'s {{p|Bellsprout}}. Pikachu then faced off against Happy, [[Ritchie]]'s {{p|Butterfree}}, in ''[[EP079|Friend and Foe Alike]]''. Despite being exhausted from battling Team Rocket earlier, he still wanted to fight. After defeating Happy, he faced off against [[Zippo]], Ritchie's {{p|Charmander}}, but due to being exhausted by all his battles, Pikachu was defeated.
In ''[[EP081|Pallet Party Panic]]'', Ash decided to take Pikachu, along with some of his other Pokémon, to the [[Orange Archipelago]] with him.
