Template:Incomplete synopsis Ash and his friends visited a Kanto festival, where one of the presentations featured the local starter Pokémon, involving a live action show with a Charmander. This made Ash remember his own Charmander, prompting him to tell the story how he got his Charmander, and how it eventually became Charizard and won many battles with him, eventually leaving for training. Interested by the idea of seeing his old friend again, Ash called Professor Oak, who, in exchange for Ash's Unfezant, sent Charizard over to him. While being introduced to all of the gang's new Pokémon, Charizard almost immediately started a fiery rivalry with Iris's Dragonite, encouraging Ash and Iris to have a battle with their Pokémon. During the battle, Charizard was shown to have learned Wing Attack, Slash, and Dragon Tail. After a while, the battle was called off by N. Ash then also corrected Iris's misconception that Charizard would be a Dragon-type, saying that it is actually Fire/Flying, much to Iris's surprise.
