The samurai used his Pinsir to battle Pidgeotto. Despite being sprayed by sand, it quickly defeated Pidgeotto by tackling it. When Ash sent Metapod (who used Harden), Pinsir attempted to defeat it, but its horns got cracked.
Like its trainer, Pinsir appeared in the opening scene of Adventures in the Orange Islands.
