Second, but it doesn't die. When has anything ever died in Pokemon? Never.
I rest my case.
First Pokemon movie: Ash turns into stone and Misty exclaims, "Ash! No!" (presumably dead until revived)
Pokemon4Ever: Celebi dies as the forest does. (presumably dead until revived)
Pokemon 2000 (Power of One): Lugia dies about 3 times. (presumed dead until revived)
Pokemon 1st Season: Lavender Town, the story and flashback of Team Rocket grunts killing a Marowak.
Pokemon 1st Season (Ghost Tower Episode): Ash dies and turns into a ghost and floats around with Haunter, Gastly, and Gengar.
I can go on, but I never meant to start an argument.
