It was randomly given to James who thought that he could win against the exam instructor's Graveler because he has been blasted off so many times by Ash's Pikachu. After James ordered the Pikachu to use an electric-type attack on Graveler, he shortly lost the battle. He later attempted to get Pikachu to attack the Instructor but Pikachu turned around and attacked James instead.
