Season 1: Indigo League

After Ash battled Aya, her brother, Koga, arrived. He stated nobody could left until the battle was over. Ash sent out his Bulbasaur against Koga's Venonat, who evolved. Venomoth launched Stun Spore and Sleep Powder, affecting Ash's Bulbasaur. Ash sent out Charmander, who launched Flamethrower, canceling Venomoth's Stun Spore. Just then, Team Rocket arrived and stirred trouble, by throwing some sticky substance, which binded everyone to the floor. As Misty wanted to sent out Starmie, Psyduck came out and Arbok bit on its head. Instead, Koga used Voltorb to make the group escape out of the Gym. However, Team Rocket tracked them down, where Psyduck's psychic powers triggered and blew away Team Rocket. Koga was impressed and proposed a trade, but Misty refused. Outside, Koga and Ash had their battle, uninterrupted. The two have a one-on-one battle, with Ash using his Charmander, and Koga using his Golbat. Initially having some trouble, Charmander was unable to hit the Golbat, but after using Fire Spin, Ash was the winner. Upon leaving, Koga rewarded Ash with the Soul Badge.[1]
