Ritchie used his Zippo in the Indigo Finals against Ash Ketchum and his Charizard. The two Charizard started to attack each other and to gain the upper hand, Zippo used Sword Dance, raising its attack. Zippo landed an attack on Ash's Charizard, who became enraged, and Ash's Charizard started to attack Zippo, biting it and wounding it badly. Due to this, Ash recalled his Charizard, making Ritchie the winner.
