After obtaining his fourth gym badge, Ash, along with Iris and Cilan head to Route 5. When seeing the sandboxes, swings, etc., the gang is ready to play until they notice Officer Jenny ride up in her motorcycle with Alder flirting to her. She pushes Alder off and drives away. Ash, who notices Trip asks Alder to battle him and Trip also askes. Alder decides to battle Ash first so they head to a little field. Ash uses Pikachu and Alder decides to use Bouffalant. As Pikachu begins to attack, Alder falls asleep, so Bouffalant isn't getting any commands. Bouffalant just stands there and tries to absorb all of Pikachu's attacks in his afro. Eventually, Alder wakes up after Pikachu Thunderbolts him and tells Bouffalant to use Head Charge. However, Bouffulant is mad at Alder for sleeping and makes a U-turn during his Head Charge, ramming Alder into a tree. Everyone decides to take a trip to the nearby Pokémon Center, where there is lots of food to eat. The kids are very happy to see Alder, too. However, Officer Jenny notifies Nurse Joy that a dangerous Gigalith has been attacking the citizens of Route 5. Nurse Joy asks Alder to do the job, so he does. Everyone goes out to see what is happening. Officer Jenny's Herdier uses Shadow Ball, but it doesn't do a thing. Gigalith begins to rampage towards Alder and Alder gets knocked out. Then, Gigalith starts to rampage towards the gang, but Alder gets back him, lifts up Gigalith and throws out. They all go to see what was wrong with Gigalith and notice a nail got stuck in its foot. Alder gives Gigalith a stone and Gigalith is then happy. Alder then sets off to wherever he wanted to go beforehand!
