The episode starts with Ash training his Grovyle together with Brock and his Mudkip. Grovyle starts using Bullet Seed, but Mudkip dodges it. Ash attacks with Leaf Blade, which makes a direct hit on Mudkip and it starts to evolve into Marshtomp. Then, Marshtomp attacks Grovyle with Mud Shot but Grovyle dodges it and it hits a Flaaffy.
Brock offers to help, but Mariah the owner of the Flaaffy did not accept it and instead she ran to her Grandma Cadee's drugstore. Grandma Cadee gives Flaaffy a medicine and all its wounds were healed. Ash and Brock immediately apologize and introduce themselves. Then, Brock and Marshtomp hold Mariah and Flaaffy's hands and show attraction. Then, a guy named McCauley and his Ampharos come and show his energy medicine to Cadee but McCauley didn't mix the Cheri Berry well, and Cadee says that she can't sell it. McCauley is very disappointed hearing that from Grandma Cadee. Then, Team Rocket plan to steal the medicines in the drugstore.
Cadee told McCauley to mind the drugstore while she makes medicine. May, Max and Brock go with Cadee and Mariah, while Ash and Pikachu train for their next Frontier battle. Then, Cadee mixes some ingredients and Brock takes some notes as they watch Cadee make medicine. When all the ingredients are mixed Cadee puts it into a bottle and uses her Mareep's electricity to purify the medicine.
Back at the drugstore, Jessie and James disguise themselves as an old man and a lady, while Wobbuffet and Meowth are inside a Snorlax costume. Then, Team Rocket steal and put all of the medicine in the Snorlax costume, but McCauley saw that Meowth and Wobbuffet were inside and that it isn't a real Snorlax. Team Rocket run away with the medicine, but Ash sees them and commands Grovyle to use Bullet Seed to stop them. Team Rocket don't give the medicine to McCauley, so Brock tells Marshtomp to use Mud Shot, and Team Rocket falls to a boat and are carried to a waterfall.
During the night, Brock combs Marshtomp and tells him that together with Mariah and Flaaffy they will be good couples.
Then, Ash sees electricity at the drugstore so they go there. Inside is Ampharos and McCauley practicing to make medicine but the bottle bursts because of too much electricity. May tells him that it is too late to practice, but McCauley says that he wants to be as good as Cadee. Then, he tells everyone a story about when Mariah and him were just little kids and watching Cadee make medicine. He wants to be good in making medicine but he always fails. Doctor Cadee comes and tells him that he lacks self confidence and results in failure.
- For a list of all major events in the anime, please see the timeline of events.
- Max incorrectly calls Mud Shot an Earth-type attack. However, this error was corrected for all subsequent airings.
- In one of the scenes shortly after Flaaffy was healed, Ash's gloves were skin-toned, making it appear as if he only had green wristbands on.
- in the inital airing, Max referred to Marshtomb's Mud Shot as an "earth type" attack. TPCi later redubbed this line to have Max correctly call it a "Ground type' attack
