Template:Incomplete synopsis The episode begins with Ash and Misty waiting for Brock to finish cooking. Ash starts admiring his Badges. Pikachu sees something and catches everyone's attention. Togepi goes and three Murkrow emerge from the bushes. Ash checks his Pokédex and finds out that they steal shiny objects. The Murkrow steal his Badges! Ash sends out Noctowl who knocks the Murkrow out of the tree. Ash cheers but the Murkrow fight back by throwing mud in Ash's face.

Noctowl follows them, but they attack at once and knock it out. Brock uses his Golbat's Supersonic to track the Murkrow. Ash goes over asks them for the Badges, but they fly off. Golbat tries to follow, but it gets knocked out. Pikachu knocks out the Dark-type Pokémon at once with a ThunderShock. Pikachu is captured by Team Rocket.The Murkrow pop the Team rocket balloon and steal James's bottle cap collection which really angers him. James tries to get them, but he trips and Murkrow fly away with their stash. James continues to try and get back his prized collection by trying to capture Murkrow with a net, but Team Rocket gets a boulder instead and gets thrown away. After another win, Murkrow yet again admire their loot.

Ash says that he needs to get his Badges back and uses his Bulbasaur to climb the hill. On the top of the hill, he spies on the Murkrow and makes a plan. Ash tries to sneak up to them and snatch the Badges, but he gets pecked and knocked down the hill. The Murkrow start to mock Ash. Suddenly the Murkrow see something shiny, but it is only a diversion. Everything was going great until Togepi blows their cover. After another failure that causes Pineco to get blown up, Ash has a plan and sends in Noctowl. Noctowl flies in and plays dead and the Murkrow let their guard down and Noctowl snatches the Badges. Team Rocket attacks with a giant robot resembling a giant Murkrow. They go on a rampage and steal everything insight.

The Murkrow are about to be sucked away, but Ash saves them. Pikachu ends getting caught which results in our heroes fighting back! Noctowl and Murkrow team up and go in, which results in the robot short-circuiting which releases Pikachu. Pikachu delivers a Thunderbolt which sends Team Rocket blasting off again. Ash gets back his missing Fog Badge and thanks the Murkrow for their help and with that Ash and his friends are off for more adventures.
