In The Bug Stops Here, Ash and Casey participated in a Bug-Catching Contest, receiving a Park Ball each to be used during the competition. Casey used her Park Ball to catch a Weedle, while Ash caught himself a Beedrill. Eventually, Ash's catch won him the contest, earning him a Sun Stone and his new Beedrill as prizes, with the Beedrill being placed inside a regular Poké Ball.
