<!-- Detailed synopsis goes here. -->
 
{{Ash}}, [[Misty]] and [[Brock]] came across a bridge during their travels. They wanted to walk on it but the officer said only the bike track was ready, not the actual road. Devastated, the group then attempted to get a [[Bicycle|bike]] but was unsuccessful. When they arrived at the [[Pokémon Center]] to think of a plan to get a bike, they found a worried [[Nurse Joy]]. She said she had to deliver medicine for injured [[Pokémon]] over the bridge but she could not leave the center because she had Pokémon to attend to. Ash and Misty agreed enthusiastically. As they rode joyfully across the bridge, [[James]], [[Jessie]] and {{MTR}} sailed slowly below the bridge. Jessie made plans.
 
 
Just after Ash and his group finished their refreshments, a strange group of wild bikers came. They tried to escape but were surrounded. The leader of the gang, [[Chopper]], challenged Ash to a {{pkmn|battle}}. He sent out {{p|Golem}} and Ash sent out {{AP|Bulbasaur}}. Golem easily defeated it with a single {{m|Tackle}}. Ash then sent out {{AP|Charmander}}. Charmander set Golem on fire with a {{m|Flamethrower}} and an {{m|Ember}}. Golem tackled Charmander but ended up setting fire to three of the gang's members. Chopper withdrew his Golem but the [[Poké Ball]] was still hot from Charmander's attack.
 
   
Next, [[Tyra]], the other leader of the bike gang, sent out {{p|Cloyster}}. Misty wanted to battle and tried to send out {{TP|Misty|Starmie}} but {{TP|Misty|Psyduck}} appeared. Misty decided to give it a chance. Psyduck was clueless and the bike gang cracked up in laughter. Psyduck used {{m|Tail Whip}} and again, the bike gang laughed at it. After a few rounds of this humiliation, [[Team Rocket]] arrived and said their {{TP|Team Rocket|motto|mottos}}. But it appeared that Team Rocket were heroes in the bike gang's view. Jessie was called "Chain Jess" because she used to swing a chain around as she rode her bike. James was called "Little Jym" because he was the only one in the group who had used training wheels. Just as Team Rocket and the bike gang attacked Ash, Misty and Brock, the police arrived. The bike gang immediately rode off, almost leaving Team Rocket behind. When [[Officer Jenny]] arrived, she offered them a ride but then said she had a job to do. The [[Weather conditions|weather]] got ferocious and turned into a storm. Meanwhile, Chopper and Tyra challenged Team Rocket to ride through the storm on their unicycles.

<i>In the course of a journey, one meets up with many different things. Returning to civilization after a long period of wandering, our heroes find a bridge that reaches 20 kilometers in length. There is no way to reach Sunnytown—on the other side of the bridge—but by crossing. The bridge, however, has been designed especially for bicycles. The party tries to purchase bicycles in order to cross the bridge, but lacking the funds and otherwise at a complete loss, they decide to stop by the Pokémon Center and re-evaluate their plans. At the Pokémon Center, by pure luck, a job awaits them—delivering medicine to Sunnytown.</i>

==Plot==
  +
{{Ash}}, {{an|Misty}}, and {{an|Brock}} come across a bridge, but when they try to walk on it, an officer named {{OBP|Norman|EP036}} says only the bike track was ready, not the actual road. Devastated, {{ashfr|the group}} then sees a [[Bicycle|bike]] store, though their prices prove to be expensive. The group retreats to the [[Pokémon Center]] to think of a plan to get a bike. Suddenly, a worried [[Nurse Joy]] appears and says she had to deliver medicine for injured {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} over the bridge to [[Sunnytown]], but she cannot leave the Center because she has Pokémon to attend to. Ash and Misty agree to carry out the task for her after Nurse Joy informs them she has several spare bikes. Misty and Brock ride a tandem bicycle, whilst Ash leads in his single bike, enjoying the bridge's view and fresh air. Meanwhile, below the bridge, [[James]] rows an inflatable boat whilst [[Jessie]] and {{MTR}} peer through their binoculars and notice Ash and his friends. Jessie and James mention the area could almost be considered their hometown and make plans to target {{AP|Pikachu}}.
  +
  +
Just after Ash and his friends finish their refreshments, they find themselves surrounded by a group of wild bikers. They tried to escape, but the gang's leader [[Chopper]] challenges Ash to a {{pkmn|battle}}. He sends out his {{p|Golem}} and Ash calls on {{AP|Bulbasaur}}. Golem's shell protects it from Bulbasaur's {{m|Vine Whip}} and it easily wins with a single {{m|Tackle}}. Ash then sends out {{AP|Charmander}}, who sets Golem alight with its {{m|Flamethrower}} and {{m|Fire Spin}}. Golem's Tackle misses Charmander, and it strikes several of the gang members instead. Chopper withdraws his Golem, but the {{i|Poké Ball}} is still hot from Charmander's attack.
  +
  +
Next, [[Tyra]], the other leader of the bike gang, sends out {{p|Cloyster}} against Misty, who tries to send out {{TP|Misty|Starmie}}, but {{TP|Misty|Psyduck}} appears instead. Misty decides to give it a chance, but Psyduck's attacks repeatedly backfire on it. Before Psyduck has a chance to develop a headache from Cloyster's own attacks, {{TRT}} arrives, riding on unicycles and saying their {{motto}}. They receive a heroes' welcome from the bicycle gang, who refer to Jessie as "Chainer Jessie" and "Big Jess" for her penchant of swinging a chain around as she rode her bike, and James as "Little Jim" and "Trainer James" because he was the only one in the group who had to use training wheels. Just as Team Rocket and the bike gang begin to attack Ash, Misty, and Brock, the police arrive. The bike gang immediately rides off, almost leaving Team Rocket behind. When [[Officer Jenny]] arrives, she offers them a ride, though she retracts her offer after being called to another emergency. As the [[weather]] becomes ferocious and turns into a storm, the bicycle gang and Team Rocket seek refuge in a building. Chopper and Tyra then challenge Team Rocket to ride through the storm on their unicycles. The whole trio falls for the peer pressure and accepts the task.
  +
  +
In [[Sunnytown]], Nurse Joy calls the other Pokémon Center; she is worried that medicine hasn't arrived to cure the injured Pokémon, a {{p|Shellder}}. As Ash and his friends continue to ride through the rainstorm, the bridge lifts to allow a ship to pass through. However, they determinedly continue riding. Simultaneously, Team Rocket are trying their hardest to pedal their unicycles up the other side of the upturned bridge. Just as Ash, Misty, and Brock are not going to make it, they see Team Rocket jumping from the other side and promptly bounce on their heads, sending the trio into the water while allowing themselves to be propelled upward and on to the other side. As they pass the bike gang, they are challenged to a battle. When Ash refuses and tells them that he is delivering medicine for a sick Pokémon, the gang decides to escort them. They arrive in time, and Nurse Joy quickly pours the medicine into the tank, instantly improving Shellder's condition. Misty phones through to the other town's Nurse Joy, alerting her to their arrival. The bike gang promptly calls Ash and Misty "Awesome Ash" and "Mighty Misty". Brock tells Tyra that she can call him "Honey", only to receive a slap.

Meanwhile, Team Rocket emerges out of the water, stacked on a single unicycle and covered in seaweed.

==Major events==
Then, a ship passed by and the bridge lifted up but Ash was determined to save the sick Pokémon, for it would have been too late if they had stopped for the bridge to go back down. Meanwhile, Team Rocket are trying their hardest to pedal their unicycles up the other side of the upturned bridge. Just as Ash, Misty, and Brock are not going to make it, they saw Team Rocket jumping off the other side and bounced on their heads, sending Team Rocket into the water while allowing them to be propelled upward and on to the other side. As they passed the bike gang, they challenged Ash to a battle. Ash, of course, refused and told them he's delivering medicine for a sick Pokémon. The bike gang realized now why they were riding through the storm and joined them. Nurse Joy in Sunny Town was relieved when the bike gang and Ash arrived with the medicine. The bike gang's new heroes were "Awesome Ash" and "Mighty Misty". Then, Brock tells Tyra that she can call him "Honey", only to receive a large, red slap across his face.

Blurb

In the course of a journey, one meets up with many different things. Returning to civilization after a long period of wandering, our heroes find a bridge that reaches 20 kilometers in length. There is no way to reach Sunnytown—on the other side of the bridge—but by crossing. The bridge, however, has been designed especially for bicycles. The party tries to purchase bicycles in order to cross the bridge, but lacking the funds and otherwise at a complete loss, they decide to stop by the Pokémon Center and re-evaluate their plans. At the Pokémon Center, by pure luck, a job awaits them—delivering medicine to Sunnytown.

Plot

Ash, Misty, and Brock come across a bridge, but when they try to walk on it, an officer named Norman says only the bike track was ready, not the actual road. Devastated, the group then sees a bike store, though their prices prove to be expensive. The group retreats to the Pokémon Center to think of a plan to get a bike. Suddenly, a worried Nurse Joy appears and says she had to deliver medicine for injured Pokémon over the bridge to Sunnytown, but she cannot leave the Center because she has Pokémon to attend to. Ash and Misty agree to carry out the task for her after Nurse Joy informs them she has several spare bikes. Misty and Brock ride a tandem bicycle, whilst Ash leads in his single bike, enjoying the bridge's view and fresh air. Meanwhile, below the bridge, James rows an inflatable boat whilst Jessie and Meowth peer through their binoculars and notice Ash and his friends. Jessie and James mention the area could almost be considered their hometown and make plans to target Pikachu.

Just after Ash and his friends finish their refreshments, they find themselves surrounded by a group of wild bikers. They tried to escape, but the gang's leader Chopper challenges Ash to a battle. He sends out his Golem and Ash calls on Bulbasaur. Golem's shell protects it from Bulbasaur's Vine Whip and it easily wins with a single Tackle. Ash then sends out Charmander, who sets Golem alight with its Flamethrower and Fire Spin. Golem's Tackle misses Charmander, and it strikes several of the gang members instead. Chopper withdraws his Golem, but the Poké Ball is still hot from Charmander's attack.

Next, Tyra, the other leader of the bike gang, sends out Cloyster against Misty, who tries to send out Starmie, but Psyduck appears instead. Misty decides to give it a chance, but Psyduck's attacks repeatedly backfire on it. Before Psyduck has a chance to develop a headache from Cloyster's own attacks, Team Rocket arrives, riding on unicycles and saying their motto. They receive a heroes' welcome from the bicycle gang, who refer to Jessie as "Chainer Jessie" and "Big Jess" for her penchant of swinging a chain around as she rode her bike, and James as "Little Jim" and "Trainer James" because he was the only one in the group who had to use training wheels. Just as Team Rocket and the bike gang begin to attack Ash, Misty, and Brock, the police arrive. The bike gang immediately rides off, almost leaving Team Rocket behind. When Officer Jenny arrives, she offers them a ride, though she retracts her offer after being called to another emergency. As the weather becomes ferocious and turns into a storm, the bicycle gang and Team Rocket seek refuge in a building. Chopper and Tyra then challenge Team Rocket to ride through the storm on their unicycles. The whole trio falls for the peer pressure and accepts the task.

In Sunnytown, Nurse Joy calls the other Pokémon Center; she is worried that medicine hasn't arrived to cure the injured Pokémon, a Shellder. As Ash and his friends continue to ride through the rainstorm, the bridge lifts to allow a ship to pass through. However, they determinedly continue riding. Simultaneously, Team Rocket are trying their hardest to pedal their unicycles up the other side of the upturned bridge. Just as Ash, Misty, and Brock are not going to make it, they see Team Rocket jumping from the other side and promptly bounce on their heads, sending the trio into the water while allowing themselves to be propelled upward and on to the other side. As they pass the bike gang, they are challenged to a battle. When Ash refuses and tells them that he is delivering medicine for a sick Pokémon, the gang decides to escort them. They arrive in time, and Nurse Joy quickly pours the medicine into the tank, instantly improving Shellder's condition. Misty phones through to the other town's Nurse Joy, alerting her to their arrival. The bike gang promptly calls Ash and Misty "Awesome Ash" and "Mighty Misty". Brock tells Tyra that she can call him "Honey", only to receive a slap.

Meanwhile, Team Rocket emerges out of the water, stacked on a single unicycle and covered in seaweed.
