What Ash was talking about wasn't forcing Chimchar to activate blaze, like Paul was always trying to do.

But to your question, I don't know, I don't quite remember the episode where that was mentioned. It was either the episode after Chimchar was caught "Tears for Fears" I think, or the episode Chimchar first used blaze under Ash, Gligar's first official battle was also in that episode.
But I don't know what was said in the original, and I don't have access to the original anyway. But what I can tell, as I already said, was Ash was talking about not forcing Chimchar to activate blaze just to use its full power, Ash wanted to rely on Chimchar's skills sans Blaze, unlike Paul.
Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.
