While on-route to Vermilion City, Ash stumbled upon a Charmander sitting on a rock in the pouring rain. It's flame on its tail was almost completely out and it looked like it was in bad shape. Ash was always disappointed that he couldn't get a Charmander from Professor Samual Oak on the first day of his journey and he was extremely disappointed. Ash tried to catch the Charmander but eventually he came to realize that it was already owned by another trainer and that it was probably waiting for its master to return. Ash decided to leave the Charmander and then arrived at the local Pokémon Center where Damian was boasting that he no longer had a Charmander as he left it at the mountain pass.

Ash realized that the Charmander that Damian was talking about was the same one that he passed on the mountain pass on the way to the Pokémon Center. Ash decided to return back to the mountain pass to rescue the Charmander. It's tail was almost completely out when he arrived but he quickly took it to Nurse Joy who treated it. During the night, it returned to the rock on the mountain pass to await for its trainer Damian to come and get it.

Team Rocket ended up encountering Damian's Charmander and were quite impressed with its strength. Damian overheard Team Rocket's comment about his Charmander being strong and decided that he wanted to keep it. Ash managed to convince Damian's Charmander that it had waited enough for Damian and he had abandoned it once and would probably do it again if the circumstances changed again. Ash gained the trust of Damian's Charmander and ended up getting it.

Gym Battle against Erika

Erika's Weepinbell was the second Pokémon that Erika sent out to battle in her Gym Battle with Ash. Realizing that his Grass on Grass battle technique wasn't working against Erika, Ash sent out his Charmander to battle Erika's Tangela. Erika's Weepinbell was sent out second to counter Ash's Charmander but its Flamethrower proved to be too much for it. Ash's Charmander turned Erika's Weepinbell's into raining fire after it lit the leaves on fire with its Flamethrower. Erika's Weepinbell was then sent flying with a Skull Bash that knocked it out.

Gym Battle against Koga

Just after Koga's Venonat evolved into Koga's Venomoth, Ash recalled his Pigeon and sent out his Charmander to battle but Team Rocket interrupted the battle. After dealing with Team Rocket, Ash's Charmander started a new battle for the gym badge against Koga's Golbat. Ash's Charmander was able to endure Koga's Golbat Screech attack and then finished it off with a Fire Spin to give Ash the victory and the badge. Brock said that Koga's Golbat's Screech attack gave him goosebumps while Misty stated that she couldn't stand the sound of it, so it shows just how much Ash's Charmander had to fight through to get the victory.
