Charmander is a fellow member of the rescue team "Go-Getters".
Charmander found Squirtle, who claimed to be a human looking like a Pokémon. Charmander, despite the odd claims, came with Chikorita and enlisted Squirtle as a member of the rescue team - to save other Pokémon, who are in danger. They came to the Whiscash Elder and named the team as "Go-Getters". The Whiscash Elder sent them to find Pichu's brother, Pikachu, and rescue him. Before going to the mission, Chikorita proposed buying some stuff from Kecleon brothers, but the brothers had no items left to trade, for someone bought it before them. Soon, Team Meanies came and attacked them, leaving Team Go-Getters with two Oran Berries. However, Aunt Kangaskhan gave them some scarves for the mission.
The team went in and hearing something, Charmander used Metal Claw on a rock. The team had found Pichu, who went in to find Pikachu by himself, but was scared off by Team Meanies. The team, along with Pichu, went through the tunnel, in which Charmander had to use Flamethrower and Ember to scare off Shroomish, who were startled and used Stun Spore. Later on, Team Go-Getters found Team Meanies, who were attacked by Skarmory. After Squirtle fed them with Oran Berries, Team Go-Getters encountered Skarmory. Charmander used Flamethower, but Skarmory dodged the attack. Charmander attempted to use the Corsola twig, but Skarmory deflected the twig. Fortunately, Squirtle managed to hit Skarmory with the Corsola twig and Charmander, along with Chikorita and Squirtle, defeated Skarmory with a combined attack. Pikachu and Pichu were saved, while Charmander remained as a member in Team Go-Getters.
