Template:Incomplete synopsis Ash and his friends continue their journey towards Rustboro City when in the deep woods, Ash spies a Treecko. He had wanted to catch a Treecko since he first saw one at Professor Birch's laboratory. He follows the Treecko to an enormous tree that seems to be dying. There, Treecko has an argument with all of the other Treecko of his clan. It seems that this Treecko is very attached to the tree and wants to stay with it, while the rest of the clan wants to move on to a new tree. Ash watches as the lone Treecko struggles to save the tree. Ash is determined to help this Treecko, but Team Rocket is determined to capture all of the Treecko as well.
