Plot Summary

Ash and Brock are searching for Pikachu in the woods when they see a huge electric burst rise above the trees. Could it be the little yellow electric-type they're looking for? They race toward the light and run smack into a new foe - a bad sport named Paul. And with Paul is his Elekid. He challenges Ash to a three-on-three battle, but without Pikachu, Ash isn't prepared.

Just then, a robot lumbers into view. It's Team Rocket - and they've taken Pikachu from Dawn. Piplup, Starly, and Aipom are no match for the metal machine, so Team Rocket celebrates their victory by chanting their new motto. But ash refuses to give up. He climbs the robot to save Pikachu while Team Rocket is busy gloating. James instructs the robot to claw Ash off, but the machine blasts Team Rocket off instead.

Officer Jenny pulls up at the scene to take the crew back to Professor Rowan's lab. There's a package waiting for Ash. It's from his mom and it has cool new outfits inside. Outside, Paul is still waiting to battle Ash. They battle, but the outcome is a tie. But Ash isn't disappointed. He has a feeling they'll meet again in Sinnoh.

Since they are all headed to Jubilife City, Dawn asks to join Brock and Ash. The boys gladly agree to travel with such a nice new friend.
