When [[Ash's Monferno]] accidentally [[Dig (move)|dug]] up a buried treasure chest. Meanwhile, the treasure chest gang (which is really a disguised Team Rocket) shows up, attempting to steal the chest Ash holds. They soon reveal themselves to them, but before they could steal the chest, Ash then commands Pikachu to use Thunderbolt which sends Team Rocket blasting off.

<i>As Ash prepares for his final Sinnoh region Gym Battle with a little training, his Monferno accidentally discovers a treasure chest buried in the forest! While struggling to open it, our heroes are approached by Team Rocket-in disguise, as usual. James remembers that he was the one who buried the treasure chest long ago! James and the rest of Team Rocket attempt to retrieve the chest, but to no avail.
   
Ash and his friends are not convinced, and Brock, saying that if the chest really belongs to James, he should be able to open it. James accepts the challenge and tries a variety of attempts and passwords to open the chest. But after trying thrice incorrectly, a red light suddenly glows in the box's security system screen and when they think that they can open the box, a cannon suddenly came out of the box's upper cover. James tells them that the security system activates when you get three wrong answers. He tells them to run but only to be blasted off by a laser fired by the cannon. Ash and his friends find themselves in a mansion, opened up by automatic gates. A butler came running to get the chest and revealed that the chest belongs to Master James, the James of Team Rocket, proving this by an art of James' pet, [[Growlie]], below the chest. Dawn asks if the James the butler was looking was the same James from Team Rocket, Ash and Brock tells Dawn that James is from a rich family. James, seeing this, predicts an upcoming disaster if he were to be found by his butler, Sebastian. Sebastian then wiould call his mother and father along with [[Jessiebelle]]. James come up with the plan of retrieving the treasure chest once more without being discovered by his butler Sebastian. Dawn wonders why James joined Team Rocket at the first place, Brock replied that maybe James was looking for his freedom.
+
Meanwhile, James recalls that the chest contains a letter proposing marriage to his would-be fiancée, Jessiebelle. James knows if that letter ever falls into her hands, the results would be disastrous! And our heroes, who still have possession of the chest, are wandering by one of James's vacation mansions when Sebastian, the butler, spies them. Excited at the thought that "Young Master James" must be close by, Sebastian invites our heroes in, while Jessie, disguised as Jessiebelle (along with a disguised James and Meowth), shows up to get the treasure chest back.
   
Sebastian offer a meal to Ash and his friends for finding master James' treasure chest. But before Sebastian were to ask them where they found the chest, Jessiebelle (a disguised Jessie), along with her companions (a disguised James and Meowth) arrived at the mansion. When Ash and his friends finds out, Ash says that the name sounds familiar to him, Brock remembered that she is James' fiancée. The disguised Jessie told Sebastian that James ask her to get the treasure chest back for him and that James has returned. The disguised Meowth commands Ash to return the treasure chest, but before they could return back the chest, Growlie suddenly appeared and figured out James' scent. Growlie jump toward the disguised James and unravel his true identity which surprises everyone. But then, Sebastian brought out his {{p|Spinarak}} and commands it to use String Shot at James for him to be handed over to his father. James took out his Mime Jr. and commands it to use Teeter Dance, he presses a button in a wall for Sebastian and Spinarak to fall through a trap. James explains them why he wants to retrieve the chest. He told them that it happens when he was very young, when he met Jessiebelle and that she was his first love, he wrote a letter saying that he wants to marry Jessiebelle. He is embarassed if someone read the letter before her, when suddenly his parents was standing beside him, his parents present him a gift that is the treasure chest and his father made it himself. His mother told him that he was invited in Jessiebelle's house that night and to tell her what he truly feels for her. Then he places the letter inside the chest so that no one but Jessiebelle can read the letter, when he was about to give the chest, Jessiebelle already knew what he's planning to do and decides to marry him. But when Jessiebelle requested James to replace Growlie with a Skitty, he then refuse and decides to cut off their wedding, James found out how selfish Jessiebelle was, he doesn't want to marry Jessiebelle inexchange of his best friend. He commands Growlie to use dig and bury his treasure chest. Later, they found out that Jessiebelle is making her way into James' mansion. Jessiebelle commands her guards to guard the mansion so that James cannot escape. When Jessiebelle entered the mansion, she was welcomed by Sebastian and lead her to a secret passageway connected to an underground tunnel the mansion. Ash and his friends along with Team Rocket, trying to escape using the underground secret passageway, was later being found out by Jessiebelle and Sebastian. When they succesfully come out of the tunnel, Jessiebelle and Sebastian was trapped inside, Ash and his friends places tons of big rocks at the exit so that they can't follow up to James.
+
But when Sebastian discovers James is really there, he takes it upon himself to alert the real Jessiebelle, who arrives on the scene-all set to marry James! James sadly gives in and says goodbye to Team Rocket and our heroes. But, secretly, he asks Ash to have Pikachu use Thunderbolt and blast them off, away from Jessiebelle! To James's dismay, Jessie and Jessiebelle accidentally get switched, leaving James on the run from his crazed fiancée...with Meowth running along with him! And, tired of the nuptial nightmare, our heroes once again turn toward their upcoming challenges.</i>
   
James, Jessie and Meowth attempt to guess the password but they got it all wrong, the chest transforms into a robot that fires a beam but they were saved by Growlie. James told Growlie to use Flamethrower to break the chest, but the robot, apparently unaffected, then transformed into a smaller one and fired a missile that hit Growlie. When the robot fired another two missiles, Growlie dodges them all then uses [[Dig]], damaging the chest robot. James commanded Growlie to use Flamethrower, this time hitting the treasure chest, the chest returns to its normal form and then transforms into a rocketship, the rocketship chest flies up into the sky, never to return again. Back inside the tunnel, Jessiebelle commands her {{p|Vileplume}} to use SolarBeam, and the attack opens the exit, blasting both Ash and Brock in the process. Jessiebelle told them that the wedding ceremony was fixed and his father and mother are there too. James comes up with a plan, he tells the gang that he needs Ash's Pikachu to use Thunderbolt on them so he can escape Jessiebelle.

==Plot==
  +
The episode begins with {{Ash}} and {{an|Dawn}} having a battle while on their way to [[Daybreak Town]] for Dawn's next [[Pokémon Contest]]. When [[Ash's Monferno]] accidentally {{m|dig}}s up a buried treasure chest, they all try to break it open, but it is too well made. {{TRT}} sees them trying to break it open, and decide to steal the chest to get the treasure inside. They [[List of Team Rocket's disguises|disguise themselves]] as the Treasure Chest Gang, but they soon reveal themselves as Team Rocket, and Ash has {{AP|Pikachu}} use {{m|Thunderbolt}} which sends them blasting off. When they land, [[James]] remembers that he used to own the treasure chest, and buried it when he was a child, but he can't remember what he hid inside it. The team decides to retrieve the item again, imagining it contains some of James' allowance.
   
Ash agrees with his plan and Pikachu uses its Thunderbolt on Team Rocket, which sends them blasting off. James and Meowth were surprised when they saw that Jessiebelle was with them and not Jessie, Jessie was the one left and Jessiebelles' guards mistook Jessie as Jessiebelle. Ash and his friends then make their way towards the next city, while James and Meowth are being chased off by Jessiebelle.
+
Ash and his friends are continuing their journey when suddenly Team Rocket shows up once more, and they try to tell Ash that the chest belonged to James. Ash and friends assume it is a lie, but {{an|Brock}} says that if it did belong to James, then he would know how to open it. James tries to open the chest, but he can't remember how. He tries different passwords, and when he tries for the third time, the chests looks like it is opening, but it's really the security system. James tells them to run, and a cannon comes out of the lid and sends Team Rocket blasting off. When they land, James suddenly remembers what was inside the chest, but he won't tell [[Jessie]] or {{MTR}}. He becomes determined to stop anyone from finding out what is inside the chest.
  +
  +
Meanwhile, Ash and his friends are admiring a huge, impressive-looking mansion, when suddenly the gates open and a butler comes running out of the building to take the chest, which he says belongs to master James. He proves it is James' by showing the gang a picture on the bottom of the chest which James did of his Pokémon [[Growlie]] when he was a little boy. The butler gets very emotional at the thought of James returning, and starts to look for him in the bushes and trees. Ash and Brock tell Dawn that James came from a very rich family, and that the huge mansion was probably one of his family's summer estates.
  +
  +
James and the rest of Team Rocket are watching, and James is scared that if Sebastian (the butler) sees him, he will call his parents and his fiancée, [[Jessebelle]], whose controlling personality was the reason he ran away from home and joined Team Rocket. James comes up with a plan to retrieve the chest without being recognized by Sebastian.
  +
  +
Ash, Dawn and Brock are inside the mansion, and Dawn wonders why James joined Team Rocket at the first place. Brock says that maybe James was looking for his freedom. Sebastian offers a meal to Ash and his friends as a thank you for finding master James's treasure chest, and while the gang are tucking in, Sebastian asks them where they found the chest. Before they can answer, the doorbell rings. It is Jessie, disguised as Jessebelle, and Meowth and James disguised as her servants. Jessie says that she has just come to pick up the treasure chest for James, who had returned and was marrying her after all. Sebastian begins to cry with happiness, and Meowth orders Ash to fetch the chest. Everything is going well for James, but then suddenly his old Pokémon Growlie wanders out, and recognizes James even through his disguise. Growlie jumps onto James to say hello, and knocks the disguise off. Even though James is scared that has been found out, he is pleased to see his old Pokémon again. Sebastian is overjoyed to see James, but he quickly sends out a {{p|Spinarak}} which he tells to use {{m|String Shot}} on James so he can be handed over to his parents and marry Jessebelle. James sends out his {{TP|James|Mime Jr.}} which uses {{m|Teeter Dance}}, which allows James to send Sebastian and Spinarak down a hidden trap door into a dungeon. James takes the chest from Ash, and when asked by Dawn and Jessie, he tells them what is inside the chest.
  +
  +
James tells them about how, when he was very little, he was tired of all the formal balls his parents hosted, and on the night of one of these parties he met Jessebelle on a balcony. He fell in love with her right away, even though he only knew her name. He didn't realize the meeting had been planned by his parents. That night he wrote a love letter to Jessebelle, asking her to marry him. He thought how embarrassing it would be if anyone other than her read the note, and just then his parents, who had been listening to him, handed him the treasure chest, which was handmade by his father. They also told him that he would be going to Jessebelle's house the next night, and he should tell her how he feels. The next night, before James got a chance to ask Jessebelle to marry him, she said yes, and that it has already been arranged by their parents. She demanded that he gets a {{p|Skitty}} to replace his {{p|Growlithe}}, but James refused to part with his best friend, and ran out of the house. He told Growlie to use Dig, and buried the chest so no one will find it.
  +
  +
The flash-back ends, and James says that if Jessebelle was to find the letter, she would see it as a marriage certificate, and he would have to spend the rest of his life with her. Suddenly, the security systems go off; it is Jessebelle, and she is making her way to the mansion along with hundreds of guards. The guards surround the building, so James can't escape. James realizes Sebastian must have called her. James says that he has a secret passageway they can escape through. At the same time, Jessebelle enters the mansion, where she is greeted by Sebastian, who jumps up through the floor. He leads her to the secret passageway, where Ash, Dawn, Brock, Jessie, James and Meowth are all running from her. James tells everyone to hurry up, and Dawn says that she can't see what any of it has to do with them. James reminds them that none of it would have happened if Ash hadn't dug the chest up in the first place, so they should help him escape. They see Jessebelle and Sebastian running close behind them, and quickly get to the end of the tunnel, trapping Jessebelle and Sebastian inside. Ash and Brock tell James to run while he has the chance, but James says that he has to dispose of the letter first, and he unsuccessfully tries to guess the password again. This time the chest transforms into a huge and scary looking robot, but really it is only a foot tall. It shoots at Team Rocket, but Growlie uses {{m|Flamethrower}} and stops the laser. James gets Growlie to attack the chest, and once Growlie has used Flamethrower, Dig, then one last Flamethrower, the robot turns back into a chest, which then turns into a tiny rocket and flies away.
  +
  +
Inside the tunnel, Jessebelle gets her {{p|Vileplume}} to use {{m|Solar Beam}}, which breaks down the door. Jessebelle tells James that all the arrangements for the wedding have been made, and James says that he gives up, and just wants to say goodbye to his friends before he goes to get married, but James asks Ash to use Thunderbolt. Ash agrees, and Pikachu sends Team Rocket blasting off. James is happy to have escaped, but suddenly realizes that it is not Jessie who has blasted off with them, but rather Jessebelle. Jessie lands on her own, surrounded by Jessebelle's guards, who mistake her for Jessebelle.
  +
  +
The episode ends with Ash and his friends making their way to the next city, while the scene changes to James and Meowth being chased by Jessebelle.

Blurb

As Ash prepares for his final Sinnoh region Gym Battle with a little training, his Monferno accidentally discovers a treasure chest buried in the forest! While struggling to open it, our heroes are approached by Team Rocket-in disguise, as usual. James remembers that he was the one who buried the treasure chest long ago! James and the rest of Team Rocket attempt to retrieve the chest, but to no avail.

Meanwhile, James recalls that the chest contains a letter proposing marriage to his would-be fiancée, Jessiebelle. James knows if that letter ever falls into her hands, the results would be disastrous! And our heroes, who still have possession of the chest, are wandering by one of James's vacation mansions when Sebastian, the butler, spies them. Excited at the thought that "Young Master James" must be close by, Sebastian invites our heroes in, while Jessie, disguised as Jessiebelle (along with a disguised James and Meowth), shows up to get the treasure chest back.

But when Sebastian discovers James is really there, he takes it upon himself to alert the real Jessiebelle, who arrives on the scene-all set to marry James! James sadly gives in and says goodbye to Team Rocket and our heroes. But, secretly, he asks Ash to have Pikachu use Thunderbolt and blast them off, away from Jessiebelle! To James's dismay, Jessie and Jessiebelle accidentally get switched, leaving James on the run from his crazed fiancée...with Meowth running along with him! And, tired of the nuptial nightmare, our heroes once again turn toward their upcoming challenges.

Plot

The episode begins with Ash and Dawn having a battle while on their way to Daybreak Town for Dawn's next Pokémon Contest. When Ash's Monferno accidentally digs up a buried treasure chest, they all try to break it open, but it is too well made. Team Rocket sees them trying to break it open, and decide to steal the chest to get the treasure inside. They disguise themselves as the Treasure Chest Gang, but they soon reveal themselves as Team Rocket, and Ash has Pikachu use Thunderbolt which sends them blasting off. When they land, James remembers that he used to own the treasure chest, and buried it when he was a child, but he can't remember what he hid inside it. The team decides to retrieve the item again, imagining it contains some of James' allowance.

Ash and his friends are continuing their journey when suddenly Team Rocket shows up once more, and they try to tell Ash that the chest belonged to James. Ash and friends assume it is a lie, but Brock says that if it did belong to James, then he would know how to open it. James tries to open the chest, but he can't remember how. He tries different passwords, and when he tries for the third time, the chests looks like it is opening, but it's really the security system. James tells them to run, and a cannon comes out of the lid and sends Team Rocket blasting off. When they land, James suddenly remembers what was inside the chest, but he won't tell Jessie or Meowth. He becomes determined to stop anyone from finding out what is inside the chest.

Meanwhile, Ash and his friends are admiring a huge, impressive-looking mansion, when suddenly the gates open and a butler comes running out of the building to take the chest, which he says belongs to master James. He proves it is James' by showing the gang a picture on the bottom of the chest which James did of his Pokémon Growlie when he was a little boy. The butler gets very emotional at the thought of James returning, and starts to look for him in the bushes and trees. Ash and Brock tell Dawn that James came from a very rich family, and that the huge mansion was probably one of his family's summer estates.

James and the rest of Team Rocket are watching, and James is scared that if Sebastian (the butler) sees him, he will call his parents and his fiancée, Jessebelle, whose controlling personality was the reason he ran away from home and joined Team Rocket. James comes up with a plan to retrieve the chest without being recognized by Sebastian.

Ash, Dawn and Brock are inside the mansion, and Dawn wonders why James joined Team Rocket at the first place. Brock says that maybe James was looking for his freedom. Sebastian offers a meal to Ash and his friends as a thank you for finding master James's treasure chest, and while the gang are tucking in, Sebastian asks them where they found the chest. Before they can answer, the doorbell rings. It is Jessie, disguised as Jessebelle, and Meowth and James disguised as her servants. Jessie says that she has just come to pick up the treasure chest for James, who had returned and was marrying her after all. Sebastian begins to cry with happiness, and Meowth orders Ash to fetch the chest. Everything is going well for James, but then suddenly his old Pokémon Growlie wanders out, and recognizes James even through his disguise. Growlie jumps onto James to say hello, and knocks the disguise off. Even though James is scared that has been found out, he is pleased to see his old Pokémon again. Sebastian is overjoyed to see James, but he quickly sends out a Spinarak which he tells to use String Shot on James so he can be handed over to his parents and marry Jessebelle. James sends out his Mime Jr. which uses Teeter Dance, which allows James to send Sebastian and Spinarak down a hidden trap door into a dungeon. James takes the chest from Ash, and when asked by Dawn and Jessie, he tells them what is inside the chest.

James tells them about how, when he was very little, he was tired of all the formal balls his parents hosted, and on the night of one of these parties he met Jessebelle on a balcony. He fell in love with her right away, even though he only knew her name. He didn't realize the meeting had been planned by his parents. That night he wrote a love letter to Jessebelle, asking her to marry him. He thought how embarrassing it would be if anyone other than her read the note, and just then his parents, who had been listening to him, handed him the treasure chest, which was handmade by his father. They also told him that he would be going to Jessebelle's house the next night, and he should tell her how he feels. The next night, before James got a chance to ask Jessebelle to marry him, she said yes, and that it has already been arranged by their parents. She demanded that he gets a Skitty to replace his Growlithe, but James refused to part with his best friend, and ran out of the house. He told Growlie to use Dig, and buried the chest so no one will find it.

The flash-back ends, and James says that if Jessebelle was to find the letter, she would see it as a marriage certificate, and he would have to spend the rest of his life with her. Suddenly, the security systems go off; it is Jessebelle, and she is making her way to the mansion along with hundreds of guards. The guards surround the building, so James can't escape. James realizes Sebastian must have called her. James says that he has a secret passageway they can escape through. At the same time, Jessebelle enters the mansion, where she is greeted by Sebastian, who jumps up through the floor. He leads her to the secret passageway, where Ash, Dawn, Brock, Jessie, James and Meowth are all running from her. James tells everyone to hurry up, and Dawn says that she can't see what any of it has to do with them. James reminds them that none of it would have happened if Ash hadn't dug the chest up in the first place, so they should help him escape. They see Jessebelle and Sebastian running close behind them, and quickly get to the end of the tunnel, trapping Jessebelle and Sebastian inside. Ash and Brock tell James to run while he has the chance, but James says that he has to dispose of the letter first, and he unsuccessfully tries to guess the password again. This time the chest transforms into a huge and scary looking robot, but really it is only a foot tall. It shoots at Team Rocket, but Growlie uses Flamethrower and stops the laser. James gets Growlie to attack the chest, and once Growlie has used Flamethrower, Dig, then one last Flamethrower, the robot turns back into a chest, which then turns into a tiny rocket and flies away.

Inside the tunnel, Jessebelle gets her Vileplume to use Solar Beam, which breaks down the door. Jessebelle tells James that all the arrangements for the wedding have been made, and James says that he gives up, and just wants to say goodbye to his friends before he goes to get married, but James asks Ash to use Thunderbolt. Ash agrees, and Pikachu sends Team Rocket blasting off. James is happy to have escaped, but suddenly realizes that it is not Jessie who has blasted off with them, but rather Jessebelle. Jessie lands on her own, surrounded by Jessebelle's guards, who mistake her for Jessebelle.

The episode ends with Ash and his friends making their way to the next city, while the scene changes to James and Meowth being chased by Jessebelle.
