Fearow is Skyler's strongest Pokémon and helped to pull his Fearow Balloon. It first appeared training with its owner for the Pokémon Balloon Race and scared Ash and his friends, when they were curious about the X mark on the field. Skyler introduced himself and Fearow assisted with Ash's Noctowl to pull the balloons. The day of the race came during the race, Team Rocket sabotaged the balloons. Suddenly, a huge storm whipped up. Skyler, Ash and his friends were able to get out, but Team Rocket caused more havoc. Fearow helped to sabotoge Team Rocket's weapon and came in first with Ash and his friends.
