Recurring Pokémon that have been caught
- In Ash Catches a Pokémon, Ash caught a Caterpie that he started to battle with in Pokémon Emergency!. It was eventually released as a Butterfree in Bye-Bye Butterfree.
- An Aipom began following the group through the Kanto region, and was caught three episodes later by Ash in Channeling the Battle Zone!. She had a habit of taking Ash's hat from him making him chase her around, sometimes lowering her eyelid and sticking out her tongue at him when he tried to get it back. She was eventually traded to Dawn in Throwing the Track Switch and evolved into an Ambipom in Journey to the Unown! under her care.
