Iris and Cilan would like to meet Charizard. Ash admits he would like to see it as well and decides to bring it back. Oak and decides to trade Unfezant back. Ash comes outside and sends Charizard. Charizard roars away, making Cilan, Iris and N thrilled to meet it. Charizard burns Ash with Flamethrower, as a way to greet him. N already senses Charizard has a deep history with Ash, proving how great friends they both are.
However, Charizard has his eyes on Dragonite, as they both have just developed a rivalry. Cilan and N see these two are drawn to each other. Ash advises to Iris they can have a battle to test their strength. Iris accepts and both take positions.
Dragonite starts with Flamethrower, but is countered by the same move from Charizard. Charizard and Dragonite fly up. Charizard uses Slash against Dragonite's Dragon Rush. Both fall down, but are able to continue. Charizard flies up and hits Dragonite with Dragon Tail. Both descend down and N stops the battle, seeing both sides are very powerful.
Charizard and Dragonite agree, fascinating Cilan they made new friendships. Iris is shocked, for she wanted to catch and raise a Charizard, making Axew laugh at her.
Ash asks Charizard if it wants to come back for this journey. The others want this as well, as does Charizard, to come back and it accepts the offer. These scenes were also re-dubbed by the current TPCi cast rather recycling the 4Kids voices. Although Team Rocket appears in a flashback, they are barely visible as in the scene they appear that they are being burned by Charmander's Flamethrower, leaving only their weak silhouette visible. This marks the first time Misty and Tracey appear in the BW saga.
When Charmeleon finally evolves into Charizard it was different in both scenes where Charizard in this episode at the flashback it was seen to be roaring but in the original episode, Charizard is seen in a close-up while unleashing its Flamethrower after evolving. With Charizard reunited with Ash, it means that its days in the Charicific Valley are over. When Ash tells Charizard that the others are waiting for him, his sleeve is mistakenly colored blue instead of white.
When Charmeleon evolves into a Charizard as Aerodactyl taunts him, and he was seen roaring angrily to evolve. But in the original episode, Charmeleon is seen stomping its feet several times while angrily roaring in order to evolve into a Charizard after Aerodactyl taunts it. When Ash gains the Volcano Badge after his Charizard defeats Blaine's Magmar, he was seen excitedly obtains the badge.
Charmander's power continued to grow, easily defeating a Golem owned by a biker named Chopperdespite the type disadvantage in The Bike Bridge Gang. The rise in Charmander's battle experience reached its peak in March of the Exeggutor Squadwhere it helped stop a large number of rampaging Exeggutor. Subsequently, Charmander evolved into Charmeleon. However, in The Problem with Parasit was revealed that Charmeleon was no longer loyal to Ash, attacking a Paras when Ash was trying to deliberately lose in order to help Paras evolve.
Casandra's grandmother explained that Charmeleon's skill level had exceeded Ash's, and therefore it did not respect him. Ironically, a rampaging Charmeleon was stopped when Paras, desperately trying to avoid punishment, jabbed at it with a claw. After evolving into Parasectit put Charmeleon to sleep with Spore and allowed Ash to recall it.
Cassandra's grandmother warned Ash that he needed to learn to control Charmeleon. When an Aerodactyl swooped past, knocking Charmeleon over, Charmeleon proudly fought back but was unable to do anything.
It then jumped up and grabbed the escaping Aerodactyl's tail and followed it into the open air, but was shaken off. Upset, Charmeleon evolved into Charizard and flew after Aerodactyl to avenge its injured pride. It managed to catch Ash and put him on the ground, but unfortunately, retained its disobedience. As a newly evolved Charizard Charizard's disloyalty began to cause Ash some serious problems during his journey, losing a battle with Blaine in Riddle Me Thisas it simply loafed off and allowed Rhydon an easy win with Horn Drill.
In the next episodeCharizard refused to help dam the volcano, but changed its mind after seeing Blaine's powerful Magmar contributing. After working together, the duo were left with a burning desire to test each other's strength. Blaine permitted a battle at the peak of the volcano, and the two seemed evenly matched.
Magmar dropped Charizard into the lava, but Charizard regained the upper hand by dazing Magmar with an aerial Submission attack and then knocking it out with its powerful Seismic Toss. While confronting Mewtwo 's original clones of the three Kanto starters in their final evolutions Mewtwo Strikes BackAsh released Charizard to fight alongside Corey 's Bruteroot and Neesha 's Shellshocker against the clones. After Bruteroot and Shellshocker were quickly overpowered by their clones, Ash attempted to turn the tables by having Charizard focus on speed and evasion over raw power in its confrontation with the clone Charizard, but this strategy failed.
Once Ash released the captured originals to confront the clones, Charizard battled the cloned Charizard once again but ended the battle to cry for Ash after his sacrifice to try and stop the battle between Mew and Mewtwo.
The most costly incidence of Charizard's disloyalty was in the battle against Ritchie during the Indigo League in Friend and Foe Alike. However, when Sparky came out, Charizard condescendingly stomped the ground and flapped its wings against the little Pikachu before going to sleep, refusing to battle.

Due to this, Ash lost the round and Ritchie advanced to the next round. Ash had noticeably stopped trying to use it in battles, although in the episode Navel ManeuversCharizard, Pikachu, and Bulbasaur were used in the second round of the match between Ash and Danny. Charizard was initially unwilling to participate, and Danny nearly won. However, Charizard inadvertently helped when it tried to use Flamethrower on Ash but missed and carved an ice pillar into a sled.
This meant Ash won the round and was able to continue the match. Charizard took down a boy's Tauros with a single attack, before flying away and rampaging the city.
Lizardon Valley! Until We Meet Again!!
Ash was unable to recall it and only the intervention of Prima and her Slowbro using Disable allowed Ash to stop Charizard. It blatantly refused to listen to Ash's commands, continuing to use Flamethrower despite it having no effect on Poliwrath.
Tad and Poliwrath resisted all of them until Poliwrath responded with a Water Gun that nearly doused the flame on Charizard's tail. It was then encased in ice by Poliwrath's Ice Beammuch to Ash's horror. Ash managed to smash the ice encasing Charizard's head, and Tad walked away scornfully, telling Ash that they would have a rematch when he could control Charizard.
Ash lit a fire and thawed Charizard out, before rubbing Charizard all over to help it regain its body heat. Pikachu pointed out that Ash's hands were rubbed raw, but Ash replied that he didn't mind, and redoubled his efforts upon seeing that Charizard's flame was so small.Pokemon Ash Charizard vs Gary Blastoise Full Battle Johto league
Charizard woke up in a panic and tried to attack, but it was so cold that it could not produce a flame and passed out again. Misty provided a blanket and Tracey kept the fires up while Pikachu watched the flame, but Ash himself worked throughout the entire night to help Charizard recover. The selfless act reminded Charizard of everything Ash had done for it since it was a Charmander. Ash and Pikachu were briefly knocked out during the rescue, and Charizard became so incensed it learned Dragon Rage.
Charizard defeated Drake's Electabuzz by blocking its electricity with Fire Spin and knocking it out with Seismic Toss.
It also fought Dragonitebut was hit by a powerful Water Gun and then slammed into the ground. After a clash of Dragon Rages, Charizard fainted, but its attacks had begun to wear Dragonite down, paving the way for Pikachu to finish it off and give Ash the victory. Johto With Charla Charizard also accompanied Ash on his journey to the Johto region, although it became apparent that it was unfairly superior to most of Ash's early competition.
This was shown especially in The Double Trouble Headerwhere Casey 's Pidgey was beaten by Charizard exhaling and Rattata was defeated merely by bouncing of Charizard's stomach. A single Flamethrower beat Chikorita and allowed Charizard to win in the sweep, despite the disapproval of Misty and Brock.
Team Rocket later capitulated on Casey's frustration, calling Charizard an illegal choice by Ash. Its massive size compared to her came into effect when Chikorita ran towards it and tried to attack, Charizard responding by placing its foot out and blowing a small puff of fire after being instructed by Ash to only weaken her.
Charizard's puff of fire ended up on Chikorita's single leaf and caused her to run around for a short amount of time before using Vine Whip to attack Charizard.
Charizard was recalled by Ash after it and Chikorita fell into a large canvas of rocks.
Due to the latter's impressive SpeedCharizard started at a disadvantage, with Pidgeot's Whirlwind reflecting its Flamethrower back onto it. It was then knocked back down by a combination of Wing Attack and Quick Attack. Falkner told Ash to surrender but Ash refused and Charizard gained the strength to fight back and fly above Quick Attack. Charizard then baited Pidgeot, spinning around in midair when Pidgeot flew behind it and hitting it with Fire Spin, before seizing it and hurling it into the ground with Seismic Toss.
Pidgeot was knocked out and Ash won the Zephyr Badge. In Charizard's Burning AmbitionsMisty criticized Ash for using Charizard too often against fresh young Trainers, making him unbeatable but in an unfair way. Ash then met Lizawho taught Ash and Charizard how to fly together.
After arriving in the Charicific ValleyCharizard was humiliated by Liza's insults and proudly tried to show off its power, but was shown to be smaller and weaker than the wild Charizard who lived there.
Charizard continued to pick fights and kept getting itself defeated until Liza locked them out of the Valley, having Charla throw Charizard into the lake and telling it and Ash to stay away until they had trained and reflected. Team Rocket sympathized with Charizard and helped it to stay awake in the lake, as well as making a false attempt to break into the Valley, allowing Charizard to defeat them and win acclaim from Liza, Charla, and the wild Charizard.
Facing an emotional battle, Ash told Charizard that he did not want a weakling on his team and he would be fine without it, forcing Charizard to stay at the Valley to train and become more powerful.
He then ran away from the Valley, knowing that if he stopped, he would not be able to say goodbye. Pikachu wished Charizard well and followed Ash, leaving its teammate and friend behind. In Spell of the Unown: Charizard subsequently assisted Ash in confronting the Entei created by the Unown, but even its natural power was insufficient against Entei's sheer strength and its ability to manipulate the environment thanks to its ties to the Unown, with Entei nearly breaking Charizard's neck.
