Ash comes up to Roark and challenges him. Dawn dresses up as a cheerleader and with the help of Piplup and Buneary, she cheers him on, giving him confidence.

Roark sends out his Onix. Ash sends out Pikachu. Pikachu uses Quick Attack, but Onix quickly uses Slam. Pikachu quickly dodges the attack and climbs onto Onix. Onix uses Screech to get Pikachu off, but it fails. Onix tries to shake Pikachu off, but it holds on tight. Pikachu quickly uses Iron tail and hit Onix. Onix used Double-Edge, but Ash tells Pikachu to spin, avoiding the attack, and Pikachu uses Iron Tail. Onix dodged the move. Onix slammed Pikachu right down to the ground. Onix uses Stealth Rock. Pikachu used Thunderbolt and destroys every rock near it. It also hits Onix badly. Ash tells Pikachu to use Iron Tail. Roark told Onix to use Screech, but before it got a chance, Onix was hit, knocking Onix out. Roark recalls Onix and sends out Geodude. Ash decides to recall his Pikachu and sends out Aipom.

Meanwhile, Jessie, James, and Meowth are snooping around the back of the gym. Meowth used one of its claws to open up the back door. They find an empty hallway and they are ready to start stealing things.

Back at the gym, Dawn, Buneary, and Piplup are cheering Aipom on. Croagunk notices something and decides to check it out. Aipom uses Swift on Geodude. It doesn't hit it because Geodude uses Rollout. Aipom uses Double Team and Geodude hits the wrong copy. Aipom uses Focus Punch, but Geodude blocks the attack. Geodude uses Seismic Toss and Rollout on Aipom, but it dodges the Rollout. Aipom uses Focus Punch again and knocks Geodude out. Finally, Roark sends out his best Pokémon: Rampardos. Aipom uses Swift, but it doesn't affect Rampardos at all. Rampardos uses Headbutt, but before Aipom could dodge it, it is hit and knocks out. Ash sends out Pikachu again.

Team Rocket is still snooping around the Gym. They bump into Croagunk along the way. Jessie, James, and Meowth start to get nervous. Croagunk starts walking up to them and they step back.

Ash tells Pikachu to use Thunderbolt, but Rampardos dodges and uses Zen Headbutt. Pikachu tries to jump away, but is hurt by the Zen Headbutt. Pikachu uses Quick Attack. Rampardos is about to use Headbutt, but Pikachu jumps away. Rampardos throws Pikachu off with its tail. Pikachu uses Iron Tail and Rampardos used Zen Headbutt. Rampardos uses Zen Headbutt one more time and Pikachu is knocked out.

Croagunk is still scaring Team Rocket out of the gym. Jessie thinks that Croagunk wants to join their team, but Croagunk Poison Jabs her. James and Meowth pick her up and run away screaming.

Ash sends out Turtwig. Rampardos uses Headbutt, but Turtwig rolls away. Rampardos is about to hit Turtwig with its tail, but Turtwig bites it. Turtwig tosses Rampardos away. Turtwig uses Razor Leaf, but Rampardos burns it with Flamethrower. Rampardos uses Head Smash. Turtwig uses Razor Leaf, but is hit. Turtwig uses Synthesis. Rampardos uses Flamethrower. Turtwig quickly jumps away. Turtwig starts to run while using Razor Leaf at the same time. Rampardos uses Flamethrower, but Turtwig keeps going. Rampardos uses Zen Headbutt again, but Turtwig jumps away. Rampardos jumps, too, but misses Turtwig. Rampardos is hit with a super-strong Razor Leaf, knocking Rampardos out. Ash wins his first Sinnoh Gym badge!
