Ash {{pkmn2|caught}} his first Pokémon, a {{AP|Caterpie}}, in ''[[EP003|Ash Catches a Pokémon]]''.
In ''[[EP005|Showdown in Pewter City]]'', Ash decided to compete in the [[Indigo League|Pokémon League]] regional championships by earning [[Badge]]s from [[Gym Leader]]s across the [[Kanto]] region. Ash fought {{an|Brock}}, the {{gy|Pewter}} Gym Leader, in a [[Pokémon battle]] and lost easily. During his [[rematch]], Ash nearly defeated Brock but refused to give the final blow due to the intervention of Brock's {{brocksib|younger siblings}}. Touched by Ash's kindness to Pokémon and with the return of his estranged father, {{ka|Flint}}, Brock decided to go with Ash and pursue his dream of being the world's best {{tc|Pokémon Breeder}} and gave Ash the {{Badge|Boulder}}.
In ''[[EP007|The Water Flowers of Cerulean City]]'', Ash reached the [[Cerulean Gym]] and was shocked to learn that Misty was one of its Gym Leaders. Though the match was interrupted when Team Rocket tried to steal the Pokémon from the Gym, [[The Sensational Sisters|Misty's sisters]] awarded Ash a {{Badge|Cascade}} when Pikachu saved the [[Gym]] with a {{m|Thunderbolt}}. He continued his journey with Misty, who had dreams of becoming the world's greatest {{t|Water}} Pokémon Master.
