Ken was first found when it was being attacked by a Fearow. Ash sent Noctowl to scare it off, then get Ken up for Brock to treat it. Malachi retrieved Ken back and had it rest. When the word of missing Pidgey got to Malachi, he got Ken at his side to find Team Rocket, who were behind it. Once the Pidgey were rescued, Ken and the Pidgey used Peck.
