Ash's Palpitoad (Japanese: サトシのガマガル Satoshi's Gamagaru) is the seventh Pokémon obtained by Ash in the Unova region.


Palpitoad was first seen in BW035, where it was the leader of a group of Tympole that lived in a lake. Ash and Oshawott had unknowingly invaded its territory while looking for an underwater plant to help his, Cilan's and Iris's Pokémon heal after being poisoned by Foongus. Palpitoad was angered by their intrusion and ordered its Tympole cohorts to attack them. When they swam away in fear of Oshawott, it called upon Stunfisk's help. However, when Cilan fished Stunfisk out of the water, Palpitoad was forced to face Oshawott itself. Despite knowing some powerful moves, the Vibration Pokémon lost to Oshawott's newly mastered Aqua Jet and was captured by Ash.
