Ash's Charizard

2 bytes added, 11 June
In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga
[[Ash Ketchum (EToP)|Ash]]'s Charizard makes a few appearances in [[The Electric Tale of Pikachu]]; however, the circumstances of its capture seem to differ in this series. While [[Damian]] appears in ''[[ET07|Pikachu's Excellent Adventure]]'', he was separated from his Charmander because he was injured, not because he abandoned it. At the end of the chapter, the two reunite in the [[Hidden Village]].
Despite this difference, Ash is still seen owning a Charmander, which first appears in ''[[ET08|You Gotta Have Friends]]''. Charmander's capture is not shown in the manga, instead, it is explained that "Ash has been busy since the last comic!" when Charmander first appears from its [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}}. Charmander is first seen when a lonely Ash decides to play with his other Pokémon while {{AP|Pikachu|Pikachu (EToP)}} is off playing with a group of Pikachu. Charmander simply sets Ash on fire while his {{p|Oddish}} {{status|paralysis|paralyzes}} him with {{m|Stun Spore}}.
Later, at the 88th Pokémon League, Ash presents his Charmander, now fully evolved into a Charizard, to Brock and Misty. Despite the fact that Ash wanted to use Charizard as a secret weapon, Charizard refuses to listen to him unless he holds a special flare that burns with the fire of a {{p|Moltres}}. Due to the fact that the flare burns out quickly and Ash could lose points for using a prop, he decides to not use it and use his other Pokémon instead.
