Win with Teamwork!! (Japanese: チームプレイで打ち負かせ!! Win with Teamplay!!) is the fourth chapter of the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga.
The chapter starts when Hareta and Mitsumi are lost in the forest. Mitsumi blames Hareta for running ahead,over-excited about catching Pokémon. As she mutters about needing to get out of the forest by nightfall, a Misdreavus taps her shoulder causing her to freak out. Hareta explains that this Misdreavus is his new Pokémon and that it likes scaring people. Hareta as starts jumping up a tree to find the way to Eterna City, Mitsumi grumbles that she can't climb trees like him.
As Hareta starts leaping from tree to tree, Mitsumi trips due to a Pokémon's Grass Knot. When Hareta looks back he is attacked by a cloaked Trainer and their Roserade's Magical Leaf. Hareta jumps from tree to tree to evade, much to cloaked Trainer's surprise. The cloaked Trainer then tells Hareta to leave the forest if he didn't want to get hurt. This statement leads Hareta to believe this person is a member of Team Galactic.
Hareta hurls a Poké Ball at the Trainer which bounces off a tree opens in midair to reveal Piplup, but then Piplup crashes into Hareta's head causing both to fall to the ground. As the cloaked Trainer sighs, a Misdreavus taps the shoulder of Trainer scaring her and causing her to slip and fall onto Hareta and Piplup. Mitsumi runs over see if Hareta is okay and is surprised to see Hareta, Piplup, and Gardenia in a heap. While Gardenia apologizes, Mitsumi rubs Piplup's boo-boo. When Hareta's Gym battle challenge is refused due Hareta's earlier actions, Piplup gets mad and starts pecking Gardenia's butt until she accepts Hareta's challenge.
Their battle starts with Gardenia's Cherubi using Leech Seed and Hareta's Shinx jumping to dodge. Hareta then tells Shinx to use bite, which causes Cherubi to faint. Gardenia's next Pokémon is her Turtwig which is quickly taken out by Shinx's spark, but not before Turtwig can secretly use Grass Knot on Shinx. Next Gardenia sends out her Roserade which takes out Shinx with one hit. Hareta sends out his Misdreavus and tells it to use Spite. Another Magical Leaf from Roserade defeats Misdreavus. Hareta sends out Piplup and proudly declares that Piplup has a secret attack. He then spoils the secret by saying it is Peck and then tells Piplup to attack with Peck. After executing a successful Peck, Piplup lands only to activate the Leech Seeds from Cherubi's earlier attack. Piplup manages evade another Magical Leaf from Roserade while Gardenia begins to rant about their difference in strength. Her rant continues to the point that she calls Hareta stupid. Hareta's response to being called stupid shocks both Mitsumi and Gardenia. The battle continues with Roserade using Magical Leaf once more, this time Piplup doesn't dodge it to allow Magical Leaf to cut it free of Leach Seed. Piplup then uses Peck and Roserade tries to counter with Magical Leaf, but due to Misdreavus's Spite, the move failed. Peck makes contact and Roserade faints and Hareta earns the Forest Badge.
