Metapod was one of the earlier Pokémon that he caught in order to complete his Pokédex when it was still a Caterpie. It was shown to have evolved into a Metapod in the battle against Brock and his Onix. Metapod used String Shot to slow Onix down but Onix freed itself and used Tackle, which knocked Metapod out. A part of the String Shot was still on Onix and Red's Charmander was able to defeat Onix due to that.
