An abandoned Charmander was found by Ash, Misty, and Brock in the episode Charmander the Stray Pokémon. After going to a nearby Pokemon Center they overhear a trainer named Dario saying he abandoned a Charmander. Ash then argues with Dario about how to treat Pokémon, but Nurse Joy broke up the fight. The group resuces the Charmander from a flock of Spearow, but in doing so Pikachu also gave Ash, Misty and Brock an electric shock as well. Charmander would recover in the Pokémon Center's ER that night.
After trying to track it down the next morning, the group falls into a pitfall set up by Team Rocket, who captures Pikachu, but Charmander breaks Pikachu out of the bubble with a Flamethrower, barbecuing Team Rocket in the process. Charmander did the same thing to its former trainer and joined Ash on his journey.
