Howie is one of Ash's many friends. They met each other at a Pokémon Battle Tournament in Pewter City. When they battled, Howie used Pinsir against Ash's Corphish. In the battle Pinsir attacked with Vice Grip but Corphish was able to evade. Next Corphish counterattacked with Crabhammer and Pinsir stopped it with Guillotine.
