(Japanese: ポケモンハンターJ！ Pokémon Hunter J!) is the 20th episode of Diamond & Pearl. It first aired in Japan on February 22, 2007.
When a Pokémon hunter seizes Meowth and Pikachu, Ash allies with Team Rocket to get them back.
J's Ariados ties up Ash and J takes Pikachu! Jessie, James and Meowth notice this and are willing to steal all the Pokémon J stole. But their attempts go unsuccessful when J's Ariados ties up Jessie and James, just as Jessie calls out her Seviper. J then takes Meowth!
They spot J stealing an Absol and confront her. J orders Salamence to use Hyper Beam and Arcanine counters with Flamethrower. Arcanine is knocked out. J takes the Absol and makes her leave. Ash grabs onto one of J's vehicles. He notices Jessie and James onboard. Dawn and Brock try to stop J, but the truck takes off for J's base!
Ash and the Rockets infiltrate J's base. Ash, Jessie, James and Aipom split up to find the stolen Pokémon. In the room where J has all the Pokémon she stole, as one of her minions get a recording of them, Aipom finds Meowth and Pikachu and goes back to tell Ash.
Jessie and James are spotted by J's minions and they make a run for it. As Ash and Aipom search for Pikachu, J's Drapion appears out of nowhere and captures Ash. Aipom hits J's Drapion with Fury Swipes, rescuing Ash. Ash sends out his Turtwig to battle. J tells Drapion to use Poison Sting, but Turtwig counters with Razor Leaf and Aipom uses Iron Tail. Drapion hits Aipom and Turtwig with Poison Jab.
Ash, Aipom, Turtwig and the Rockets duck into the vents as J's minions chase them. As J's minions chase after Ash and the Rockets, Turtwig takes them out with Razor Leaf. They enter the room where Aipom found Meowth and Pikachu and they rescue them, and are afterwards confronted. One of J's minions sends out a Golbat. Ash tells Pikachu to use Volt Tackle.
