Pikachu started off using Thunder Shock which seemed to do nothing to Raichu. Raichu then used its own Thunder Shock, which was much more powerful than Pikachu's attack, and dealt much more damage. Following advice from Brock, Ash tried recalling Pikachu in order to forfeit. However, Pikachu was determined to defeat Raichu, and therefore, kept fighting. While trying to attack, Pikachu got overwhelmed by Raichu's Mega Punch and Mega Kick and was finally defeated by a powerful Thunderbolt.
Due to all the damage he had taken during the battle, Pikachu had to be hospitalized. However, Pikachu refused, wanting to defeat Raichu on his own terms.
Later, Ash challenged Lt. Surge to a rematch, where Pikachu once again faced Raichu. Trying to get close, Pikachu got hammered to the ground by Raichu's tail, followed up by repeating hits from its tail. Raichu then hit him hard with Body Slam. As Raichu was about to finish him off with another Body Slam, Pikachu managed to get up and dodge it. Ash soon found out from Brock that since Raichu was evolved so early, it did not learn any of the moves that it could only learn as a Pikachu, such as Agility and Quick Attack.
Through his use of these moves, Pikachu managed to gain the upper hand and dodge Raichu's attacks. Raichu responded with an extremely powerful Thunderbolt attack that Lt. Surge was sure could defeat Pikachu.
Pikachu, however, used his tail as an anchor to absorb the shock. Raichu tried using Thunderbolt again but due to its previous attack it had run out of electricity. Pikachu then used his tail to slam Raichu and defeat it, earning Ash the Thunder Badge. It proved to be a tough foe, using Teleport to avoid Pikachu's Thunder Shock.
Abra then suddenly evolved into Kadabra, making it much stronger. Pikachu tried filling the battlefield with lightning to prevent Kadabra from using Teleport, but Kadabra countered with Confusion to send the attack back to Pikachu. Kadabra then used Psychic to control Pikachu's body and started to repeatedly smash him into the ceiling and back down.
Unwilling to see his friend suffer even more, Ash forfeited the match. Pikachu used Thunder Shock, which Kadabra avoided using Teleport. After taking a hit from Kadabra's PsybeamPikachu unleashed a powerful Thunderbolt which dealt major damage to Kadabra.
Kadabra, however, quickly used Recovernegating the damage it had taken. At that moment, Haunter appeared, and made Sabrina and Kadabra laugh. As both Sabrina and Kadabra were unable to continue the battle, Ash was declared the winner by Sabrina's father which earned him the Marsh Badge.
The two were at a significant disadvantage due to Squirtle's short legs, and Pikachu's comparative weight, but in a way, this helped as they managed to escape an Electrode self-destructing. They made ground when they reached the water stage, putting them in the top four with Ash, Misty and Dario. However, intervention from Team Rocket forced a battle, and the two were put out of the running by a Glare attack from Arbok.
In Pikachu's GoodbyeAsh and his friends ran into a group of wild Pikachu, which was a very rare encounter. Pikachu tried to make friends with the other Pikachu but received a lukewarm response. After saving a baby Pikachu from falling down a waterfall, Ash's Pikachu was accepted by the group. Ash was overjoyed by this at first, but soon began to feel sad, because he thought that Pikachu would be better off with the rest of his kind.
After stopping Team Rocket from poaching his Pikachu and the wild Pikachu, Ash decided it was best to leave Pikachu behind with the others. However, Pikachu refused to leave Ash, and quickly ran to catch up with him, followed by the wild Pikachu, who supported Ash and Pikachu being together.

Despite being immune to Electric moves, Rhydon was defeated when Pikachu aimed his Thunderbolt attack at the horn on Rhydon's head.
Pikachu then faced Blaine's Magmar. Pikachu then tried hitting Magmar with an Electric-type attack, but it proved to be ineffective due to Magmar's Air Lens ability, which heated the air surrounding Magmar, making Electric-type attacks ineffective.

Pikachu, however, used this to his advantage by using the water to conduct his electricity and managed to defeat Arcanine with a powerful Thunderbolt.

Charizard tried hitting Alakazam and Marowak with Flamethrower, while Pikachu dashed forward. Alakazam and Marowak managed to dodge the Flamethrower, causing it to hit Pikachu. As Charizard went for Tackle, Alakazam stopped him using Psychic. Seeing how Charizard got continuously attacked by Alakazam and Marowak, Pikachu decided to help his partner and attacked Alakazam, freeing Charizard from Psychic's grasp.

Pikachu then briefly faced Falkner's Pidgeotbut as he was already tired from his previous matches, he was quickly defeated by a Whirlwind. Metapod used its jumping abilities to jump high and use Tackle.
Although Pikachu dodged it, it created a dust cloud and used the leaves of a nearby tree to make it unable to spot. Pikachu, however, managed to spot Metapod by using his hearing, and after dodging a series of Tackles with Agility, Pikachu managed to jump on Metapod's back and defeat it with Thunderbolt. Despite Pikachu having the type-advantagehis Thunderbolt attacks constantly missed, because of Scyther using Double Team. The real Scyther appeared behind Pikachu, and hit him with Fury Cutter.
With each Fury Cutter doubling in power, Pikachu was knocked out. He went up against Togepi. Pikachu, however, did not want to hurt his friend, therefore forfeited the match by running away.
