Lara met Ash and co. as she and her Growlithe tried to stop Ash from capturing any wild Pokémon in the area. When Dario informed her Tauros were upset, she came there to calm them down, but Team Rocket threw an object, causing her to fall down and hurt her arm. Ash took her place and won the race due to her Ponyta evolving into Rapidash and exposing Dario to be the saboteur, as he made an alliance with Team Rocket.
