Blurb

At the end of a long day, our heroes search for a Pokémon Center in a small town near Olivine City. Unable to locate one they ask a local lady for directions. She explains the nearest Pokémon Center is ten miles away! Too exhausted to extend today's journey, the gang decides to set up camp in a local park. As he gets water from a nearby fountain, Brock notices a Nidorina approaching to take a drink. Running after Nidorina is her trainer, who trips and almost falls into the fountain. She is narrowly saved by Brock and immediately falls head over heals in love with him. Introducing herself as Temaku, she insists Brock and his friends stay with her at her father's house. How will Brock handle a large does of his own medicine from the smitten Temaku?

Plot

Ash and his friends arrive in a small town and attempt to find a Pokémon Center. Brock develops a crush on a local woman, like nearly every other woman, but Misty pulls him away.

Brock is later at a park filling up a pot with water. A Nidorina comes by for a drink, followed close behind by a frantic girl, who trips and nearly falls into the fountain. However, Brock catches her before she falls in. As the girl looks up at her protector, she falls in love with Brock instantly. Brock is confused and intimidated by the stranger's sudden affection, which Misty notices. Brock is still left speechless, so Misty pulls him out to have a little talk about the situation, where she finds out that Brock has no actual dating experience and has no idea what to do. Coming back, the girl invites them to her house, where her father is also waiting. She formally introduces herself as Temacu. It seems like Temacu is the daughter of a local Pokémon Professor. She invites them to stay for dinner and some tea, and Misty again goes and has a conversation with Brock. Temacu takes them for a walk around her house, talking about her Nidorina, Nidorino and some of the family's other Pokémon. That's when Team Rocket storms in to get a steal. They catch the Nidorina, Nidorino, Pikachu and the other Pokémon. Ash sends out Totodile to try to free them and Jessie attempts to counterattack with Arbok. The match ends in one hit, Totodile winning. James sends out Weezing to use Smokescreen and they try to take off. Everyone tries to find the three and Temacu tries to find Brock and ends up getting caught in some rope. Misty sends out Poliwhirl to use Bubble to get rid of the smoke. Surprisingly, the stolen Pokémon are there, but Temacu is gone.

Jessie and James pull up the rope to see their captures, only to find not a Pokémon, but Temacu. Temacu loses her balance and falls, but James catches her in time. This causes Temacu to fall in love with James the same way she did for Brock. James is put off and Jessie says they should abandon her, but Temacu, being a daughter of a Pokémon Professor, means Team Rocket may have a chance to steal some Pokémon.

Temacu's father sends a search party to a nearby forest, consisting of a half dozen people along with Ash, Misty, and Brock. Ash calls out Noctowl to do an air search who soon finds Team Rocket's balloon hovering around and reports back. Meanwhile, Jessie and James go back to Temacu's house with Temacu. Her father thanks them and Jessie tells a lie about how they found the so-called "attackers" and defeated them to save Temacu. However, her father notices Meowth with something in hand and Jessie says they simply found it. Jessie and Meowth sneak off to find the Pokémon they accidentally left behind, and soon discover a room with a shelf full of Poké Balls. The heist is put on hold as Temacu's father tells them that Temacu cooked them a meal, which Jessie and Meowth accept. James is already in the dining room, acting much like Brock did, and constantly nudging Jessie for advice.

Ash finds the balloon and has Noctowl put a hole in it. When the balloon crashes it is revealed to be a decoy. They later make it back to the house. The three burst right in while Jessie, James and Meowth are eating. Brock, who by this time had started to develop feelings for Temacu, is heartbroken when he finds that she has fallen for James instead. Ash tells the family that it's Team Rocket, but Jessie tells them they're just locals. Misty pulls off Jessie's disguise and reveals Jessie to everyone.

Team Rocket makes a run for it, Ash and his friends pursue them. Ash sends out Chikorita and Jessie sends out Arbok. A Tackle from Chikorita proves enough to knock Arbok out. James then sends Weezing to use SmokeScreen but Misty sends out Poliwhirl for a Bubble. Following up with a Water Gun, James gets in the way of the shot, but Temacu pushes James aside in time and gets hit instead, knocking her out. Brock goes up to her to see if she's alright. In the meantime, Chikorita uses Vine Whip to toss Arbok and Weezing onto Jessie and James. Misty and Ash finishes them off with Poliwhirl's Water Gun and Pikachu's Thunderbolt.

One medical call later and Temacu wakes up. She then falls in love with the doctor who helped her and Brock is once again shocked, however the feelings are mutual. Her father explains that she recently saw her cousin get married and that's why she was so obsessed with getting married herself. They leave to continue their journey, but Brock is still heartbroken. Misty's assurance instantly cheers Brock up, as he looks forward to the meeting the right girl somewhere.

Trivia

  • When Temacu fantasizes about marrying Brock, she dreams about him wearing a white tuxedo to their wedding. This is actually the same tuxedo Brock is seen wearing in Beauty and the Breeder. The only difference is the addition of the rose on his chest.
  • This is one of the few times that the protagonists were able to recognize Team Rocket in their disguises (Misty was able to recognize Jessie on the spot).

Errors

  • Temacu's father calls Jessie by her name, but he is not supposed to know her name.
  • Sentret's face is missing, the bottom torso is also miscolored as the ring on its body.
  • When Misty yells at Team Rocket for tricking Temacu, Togepi's shell is tan.

Dub edits

  • In the Brazilian Portuguese dub, Temacu's name is changed to Temako, to avoid a profanity in the end of her name.
  • Hungama TV Hindi dub in India was heavily edited; the thought of love was changed to being just closest friend and the explanation to Temacu's behaviour was completely removed.
  • The Hungama TV dub also started the episode directly from the title card, skipping the parts of the episode before it.
