==Appearances==
Lt. Surge first appeared in the anime episode ''[[IL014: Electric Shock Showdown|Electric Shock Showdown]]'', where [[Ash]] challenges him to a [[Gym Battle]]. The battle ended in disaster for [[Ash]], as he was defeated by Surge's [[Lt. Surge's Raichu|Raichu]]. With Surge believing that power meant everything, he commented on how [[Ash]] should evolve his [[Ash's Pikachu|Pikachu]] as soon as possible or he would never manage to defeat him.
 
   
[[Ash]] debated over the statement for quite a while, all the while waiting for [[Pikachu]] to recover. Deciding not to evolve [[Pikachu]], [[Ash]] once again challenged Lt. Surge, which led to more criticism. [[Ash]], this time, matched Lt. Surge's [[Raichu]] with [[Pikachu]]'s [[speed]] instead of power, which is all that [[Raichu]] relied on. [[Pikachu]], able to get the best of [[Raichu]], led to [[Ash]]'s victory, where Lt. Surge gave him a [[Thunder Badge]].

In the manga, he was a member of Team Rocket before it got disbanded, though he was angry at Neo Team Rocket because the new leader was just controlling the old members. Though it was resolved when they defeated the one who was controlling everyone.

PersonalityEdit

BiographyEdit

GamesEdit

Lt. Surge first appeared in the original Pokémon games, as the Vermilion City Gym Leader. He would later be in Pokémon Gold and Silver in the same position. Again, he appeared in the Red and Blue remakes, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, with an updated appearance.

AnimeEdit

Season 1: Indigo LeagueEdit

Lt. Surge

Lt. Surge, in the anime

Lt. Surge first appeared in the anime episode Electric Shock Showdown, where Ash challenges him to a Gym Battle. The battle ended in disaster for Ash, as he was defeated by Surge's Raichu. With Surge believing that power meant everything, he commented on how Ash should evolve his Pikachu as soon as possible or he would never manage to defeat him.

Ash debated over the statement for quite a while, all the while waiting for Pikachu to recover. Deciding not to evolve Pikachu, Ash once again challenged Lt. Surge, which led to more criticism. Ash, this time, matched Lt. Surge's Raichu with Pikachu's speed instead of power, which is all that Raichu relied on. Pikachu, able to get the best of Raichu, led to Ash's victory, where Lt. Surge gave him a Thunder Badge.

MangaEdit

Red, Green, Blue ArcEdit

Main article: Lt. Surge (Adventures)

Lt. Surge serves as both a gym leader and a Team Rocket leader. He is first seen in the SS Anne importing stolen Pokémon.

Yellow ArcEdit

In the manga, he was a member of Team Rocket before it got disbanded, though he was angry at Neo Team Rocket because the new leader was just controlling the old members. Though it was resolved when they defeated the one who was controlling everyone.

  • Lt. Surge's name is a play on the word "surge", as in an electrical surge, since he is an Electric-type trainer.
  • There are several references to Lt. Surge being in the military in the video games (possibly the American army or Air Force). It is said he was Gentleman Tucker's commanding officer in the army during an unspecified war, where his life was saved by Electric-type Pokémon. There is also a rumor that he was a pilot, while in America, who used Electric-type Pokémon to power his plane.

Surge's attire in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver is incredibly similar in appearance to Guile's main attire in the series.
