To prove her worth, she challenged Ash to a battle. However, Pikachu caused her Girafarig to become paralyzed, and it fainted as a result. However, Cherry was still determined to pursue her dream. Not long afterwards, Team Rocket appeared, using a giant Gengar mecha to swallow all of the Psychic Pokémon in Len Town. Using Girafarig's Future Sight, Cherry was able to foresee what moves Team Rocket was going to use. This allowed Ash to free the stolen Pokémon. Girafarig's Future Sight then sent Team Rocket blasting off again.
|Cherry's Girafarig is Cherry's only known Pokémon. It is a tradition in Len Town for the residents to have a Psychic type, because of the Ghost-type Pokémon in the nearby woods. Girafarig's tail was first spotted by Misty's Psyduck, but it revealed its full self when Cherry introduced herself to Ash and his friends. Afterwas, it was used in a battle with Pikachu. With the help of moves like Future Sight, it nearly defeated Pikachu, but it fainted from Pikachu's Thunder.
Later when Team Rocket were stealing Psychic Pokémon with their giant Gengar mecha, it tried to use some Psychic moves, but they were deflected. Girafarig's friendship with Cherry led it to use Future Sight to show its Trainer the future. With great teamwork, Pikachu was able to dodge Gengar's tongue, with Girafarig afterwards lifting Pikachu up with Confusion. Pikachu managed to free the stolen Pokémon, but Girafarig's Future Sight blasted Team Rocket off. With this new victory Cherry vowed to make Girafarig stronger.
