Ash, Professor Oak, Jessie, James, Meowth, and Delia Ketchum all travel to the [[Isshu]] region by plane, but only the Team Rocket members are aware of the other group's presence. Once they arrive they step off the plane and head towards [[Professor Araragi]]'s lab when Pikachu sees something and stops. Pikachu looks to the sky and spots some black clouds in the sky. Ash doesn't see the clouds because he was distracted by a {{p|Mamanbou}} that was jumping in and out of the water. Upon inspection of the Mamanbou, Ash also notices the black clouds. Jessie, James, and Meowth then use this opportunity to spring a trap to catch Pikachu. The black clouds then send a massive blue thunderbolt that hits Pikachu, causing him to escape, Jessie, James, and Meowth to fall backwards, and nearby electronics to break. Pikachu, unhurt, then decides to use {{m|Thunderbolt}} and aims it directly into the center of the clouds. The clouds disperse slightly and we see {{p|Zekrom}}'s outline with glowing eyes and tip. Zekrom's shadow appears over Pikachu, making it unable to use {{type2|Electric}} moves.

Upon inspection of the Mamanbou, Ash also notices the black clouds. A [[Iris | new girl]] and her {{p|Kibago}} pop out of a tree from afar and notice the clouds, and they head towards it. Jessie, James, and Meowth then use this opportunity to spring a trap to catch Pikachu. Ash tries to save Pikachu, but fails.

We find out that Isshu will be the base of operations for their attempts at world domination. The trio board a plane heading to the Isshu region, which happens to be the same plane in which Ash is on.

Ash, Professor Oak, Jessie, James, Meowth, and Delia Ketchum are all aboard on the plane with Ash excited about all of the new Pokémon that he will see, but only the Team Rocket members are aware of the other group's presence. Once they arrive, they step off the plane and head towards Professor Araragi's lab, but when when Pikachu sees something above, Ash and Pikachu stops. Pikachu looks to the sky and spots some black clouds. Ash, however, doesn't see the clouds because he was distracted by a Mamanbou that was jumping in and out of the water. Upon inspection of the Mamanbou, Ash also notices the black clouds. A new girl and her Kibago pop out of a tree from afar and notice the clouds, and they head towards it. Jessie, James, and Meowth then use this opportunity to spring a trap to catch Pikachu. Ash tries to save Pikachu, but fails. The black clouds then send a massive blue thunderbolt that hits Team Rocket's trap, causing Pikachu to escape. The lightning also causes Jessie, James, and Meowth to fall backwards, leaving the scene, and every electronic in the area starts to malfunction. Pikachu, unhurt, then decides to use Thunderbolt and aims it directly into the center of the clouds. The clouds disperse slightly and we see Zekrom's outline with glowing eyes and tip. Zekrom's shadow appears over Pikachu, seemingly to cause no effect.

Professor Araragi then appears apologizing for being late. She takes the crew to her lab in the car as Ash watched every new Pokémon on the way their. Thw Pokémon they saw was a group of Shikijika, a flock of Mamepato, a group of Minezumi, and a school of Swanna.

They soon arrive at Kanoko Town where Professor Araragi's lab is. There they run some tests on Pikachu after noticing some sparks coming from his cheeks after the encounter with Zekrom. The tests show that Pikachu has absorbed too much electricity and will be fine after the electricity is removed.

A assistant comes into the room saying that it's time to give the new trainer his Starter Pokémon. This is when Ash is introduced to Shooti, who passes a few bad words about Ash's home town. Professor Araragi then shows Shooti the three starter Pokémon: Pokabu, Mijumaru, and Tsutarja.
