Pokemon: Indigo League Champion's Edition s01e11
Titre original : Charmander – The Stray Pokémon
While on the road to Vermilion City, Ash, Misty, Brock, and Pikachu come across a Charmander sitting on a rock. Ash tries to catch it, but it turns out it has a trainer and cannot be captured, so they head to the Pokémon Center. At the Pokémon Center, a hotshot trainer named Damian is bragging about how he left his Charmander behind, promising to come back for it when he means to abandon it for being weak in his eyes. After hearing this, Ash and Brock head back out to get the poor Pokémon as a rainstorm threatens its very life. After a battle with Team Rocket, where Damian witnesses Charmander defeating them, Damian tries to get Charmander to come back to him, but the Pokémon's loyalty now belongs to Ash. Ash captures Charmander, gaining a new friend and Pokémon.
