Arriving in Celadon City, Red, Clefairy, and Pikachu went to a Department Store where Clefairy tried out some of the items. Unfortunately, a robbery which was led by a Machoke occurred. Clefairy tried to handle the situation but got punched by Machoke. Clefairy then lured Caterpie, Kakuna and Butterfree away from Machoke. He took a Repel and sprayed the three Bug-type, rendering them useless. An Ekans who was part of Machoke's group attacks Clefairy next. Due to a bite that Ekans inflicted, Clefairy ended up getting hurt. He panicked until Red stabbed him with some medicine, which made Clefairy accidentally bump into Ekans and trap it into a bottle. Machoke became mad and evolved into Machamp. Clefairy gets chased by Machamp and hid inside a collection of Poké Dolls. Using the toys in the Department Store, Clefairy was able to outmaneuver Machamp but a bike caused him to get caught by the Fighting-type. Red managed to save Clefairy by catching Machamp. After Red caught Machamp, Clefairy has already biked far away.
