Once Winona's Altaria got defeated, Winona sent Pelipper to battle against Ash and his Pikachu. Before Pikachu launched Thunderbolt, Pelipper used Steel Wing to deflect Electric-type moves into the ground. Using this strategy, it endured Pikachu's Electric attacks. Pelipper immediately retaliated with Quick Attack, pushing Pikachu away. Pikachu tries to strike back with the same attack, but got stopped by Pelipper's Hydro Pump the power of the attack forced it to rise off the ground slightly, allowing Pikachu to hit it with Thunder. However, Pelipper's Hydro Pump proved to be too much for Pikachu, and both Pokémon fainted at the same time.
