Corey used his Pidgeot to get to New Island when they were actually forbidden to due to the bad weather. Corey then introduced his Pokémon, including Pidgeot, to Ash Ketchum and his friends. Pidgeot was later captured by Mewtwo by using the Mewtwo Ball while it was flying in the air, trying to dodge them. Pidgeot was later freed along with the rest of the Pokémon by Ash. Pidgeot then battled against the Pidgeot clone.
