Baseball is a popular sport in the Pokémon world. It is usually represented through episodes of the Pokémon anime that feature Casey, a big fan of baseball.

Three episodes have featured baseball as a major theme:

  • The introduction of Casey in The Double Trouble Header contained many baseball references. Aside from the title itself, Team Rocket had a baseball themed motto and the final confrontation took place on a baseball field.

  • Casey managed to help her team in Those Darn Electabuzz by helping their star pitcher to regain his confidence.
