|December 16, 1999||November 25, 2000|
Still on their way to Violet City, Ash and friends encounter a wild Chikorita sunbathing. Chikorita turns out to be one tough cookie beating Ash's Bulbasaur but Charizard may have overdone it and flung it into the mountain. After taking it to the Pokémon Center , it gets kidnapped by Team Rocket. Will Team Rocket get a new Pokémon, Or will Ash gets a new friend?
- This is another episode where Ash ripped off Team Rocket's motto. Other episodes include IL021: Bye Bye Butterfree, and IL037: Ditto's Mysterious Mansion, and a little bit on It's Mr Mime Time except Ash put a spin on the motto.
- Ash's Charizard used Tackle in this episode. The Charizard family is unable to use this move. Another incidence of this happened in OI027: Pokémon Double Trouble
- Together Forever was played when Ash rescued Chikorita.
