{{Ash}}, {{AP|Pikachu}}, {{an|Misty}}, and {{an|Brock}} are watching [[Gary Oak]]'s Round 4 match in the Rock Field. Gary's {{p|Nidoking}} is pitted against [[Melissa]]'s {{p|Golem}}. Nidoking charges with a {{m|Horn Attack}}, but Golem counters by grabbing on Nidoking's horn, then uses {{m|Seismic Toss}}. Nidoking is defeated and Gary is out of the competition. Frustrated by the defeat, Gary heads home. Ash thinks that he's going to lose his Round 4 match on the Grass Field as well, and becomes nervous, but Brock and Misty cheer him on. He then later learns, thanks to {{an|Professor Oak}}, that all of Pallet Town is cheering him on, which only makes him more nervous.

{{Ash}}, {{AP|Pikachu}}, {{an|Misty}}, and {{an|Brock}} watch {{Gary}}'s fourth round match on the Rock Field, and are shocked when Gary is abruptly defeated by a {{pkmn|Trainer}} named [[Melissa]]. This leaves Ash worried about his own chances during the fourth round, though Brock and Misty cheer him on. He later learns from {{an|Professor Oak}} that all of [[Pallet Town]] is cheering him on, which only makes him more nervous. Meanwhile, {{TRT}} opens up a souvenir stand with the intent of luring in and stealing {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} from Trainers.
   
Meanwhile, [[Jessie]], [[James]] and {{MTR}} have opened up a souvenir stand so they can make money, selling souvenirs and, when the souvenirs are sold out, fake [[badge|Gym Badges]] which Meowth made from bottlecaps; but like always, their true intention is to steal the {{pkmn|Trainer}}s' {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}.
+
At the Grass Field, Ash starts his next match with [[Jeanette Fisher]] from [[Crimson City]]. He sends out {{AP|Bulbasaur}}, and Jeanette uses {{p|Beedrill}}. The {{type|Bug}} Pokémon is about to hit Bulbasaur with {{m|Poison Sting}}, but Bulbasaur dodges it. Bulbasaur uses {{m|Razor Leaf}}, but Beedrill counters with {{m|Twineedle}}. Bulbasaur dodges the attack again. Ash then has Bulbasaur use {{m|Leech Seed}}, which instantly drains Beedrill's energy, before having Bulbasaur finish it off with {{m|Tackle}}. Jeanette then sends out her next Pokémon, {{p|Scyther}}. Bulbasaur launches a {{m|Razor Leaf}} at it, but Scyther uses {{m|Double Team}} to evade. Scyther gets in a few hits before Ash gets the idea to use {{m|Vine Whip}} on all the duplicates, so Bulbasaur will eventually hit the real one. The plan works, and Scyther is knocked out.
   
At the Grass Field, Ash is getting ready for his next match with [[Jeanette Fisher]]. As always, Brock becomes lovestruck and starts to root for Jeanette. Misty admonishes Brock for that. Ash starts off with {{AP|Bulbasaur}}, and Jeanette uses {{p|Beedrill}}. The {{type|Bug}} Pokémon is about to hit Bulbasaur with {{m|Poison Sting}}, but Bulbasaur dodges it. Bulbasaur uses {{m|Razor Leaf}}, but Beedrill counters with {{m|Twineedle}}. Bulbasaur dodges the attack again. Misty is hoping Jeanette may not have more Pokémon like her Beedrill, and Brock is hoping Jeanette doesn't have a boyfriend. Misty tells him, "There's no way that boyfriend is going to be you, mister, if that girl beats Ash!". Ash has Bulbasaur use {{m|Leech Seed}}, draining away Beedrill's energy. Brock becomes depressed that Beedrill is losing, but Misty angrily reminds him of who he should be rooting for. Ash then tells Bulbasaur to finish it off using {{m|Tackle}}. Jeanette's Beedrill faints and Bulbasaur wins.
+
Unwavering, Jeanette calls on her last Pokémon, a {{p|Bellsprout}}. Ash laughs and calls it weak as the Flower Pokémon wiggles its body in an odd manner. Bulbasaur uses Tackle, but Bellsprout evades the attack with ease. It then picks up Bulbasaur, repeatedly {{m|slam}}s him into the ground, and knocks Bulbasaur out, shocking Ash. Brock realizes that Jeanette's Bellsprout must be exceptionally trained, or else it would not be used in a League battle. Ash sends out {{AP|Pikachu}}, and he uses {{m|Thunder Shock}}, but Bellsprout dodges the attack and uses Razor Leaf. Pikachu dodges it and tries to use {{m|Thunderbolt}}, but Bellsprout's roots keep him ingrained and immune to {{t|Electric}} attacks. Pikachu tries to punch and box-kick Bellsprout, but it slams him again and defeats him.
   
Jeanette sends her next Pokémon, {{p|Scyther}}. Bulbasaur launches a {{m|Razor Leaf}} at it, but Scyther uses {{m|Double Team}} to evade. Scyther gets in a few hits before Ash gets the idea to use {{m|Vine Whip}} on all the targets, so Bulbasaur will eventually hit the real one. The plan works, and Scyther is knocked out.
+
Down to his last Pokémon, Ash pauses for a second and then sends out his {{AP|Muk}}, surprising his friends. Muk is able to absorb Bellsprout's Slam and Razor Leaf attacks with ease, then uses a {{m|Body Slam}}. Its powerful stench and weight smothers Bellsprout, and it soon faints. Ash wins the battle, and has now cleared all four preliminary fields to advance through to the next round of competition.
 
Unwavering, Jeanette sends out her last Pokémon - {{p|Bellsprout}}. Ash laughs at first, saying she must be desperate to use something so obviously weak. Bulbasaur uses a Tackle attack, but Bellsprout bends away in a wobble-like manner with ease, picks up Bulbasaur, repeatedly {{m|slam}}s him into the ground, and knocks Bulbasaur out.
 
 
Ash is shocked at this loss. Brock realizes that Jeanette's Bellsprout must be exceptionally trained, or else it would not be used in a League battle.
 
 
Ash sends out {{AP|Pikachu}} to try to fight. Pikachu uses {{m|ThunderShock}}, but Bellsprout dodges the attack, and uses Razor Leaf. Pikachu was able to dodge and tries to use {{m|Thunderbolt}}, but Bellsprout's roots keep him ingrained and immune to electric attacks. Pikachu now tries to do some punching and kick-boxing but Bellsprout slams Pikachu & defeats him.
 
 
Down to his last Pokémon, Ash pauses for a second and sends out... {{AP|Muk}}. Both Misty and Brock are shocked that Ash recalled Muk from Oak's lab as a backup Pokémon. Muk is able to absorb Bellsprout's Slam and Razor Leaf attacks with ease, then uses a {{m|Body Slam}} (essentially smothering Bellsprout) to finish it off.
 
 
Ash wins the battle, and has now cleared all four preliminary fields.

Blurb

Ash's fourth battle on the Grass Field is against his toughest opponent yet! He battles Jeanette Fisher from Crimson City who brings a whole cheering section with her. Jeanette uses a powerful Scyther, which Ash has never battled before. Will his Bulbasaur be able whip Scyther's double team attack by using his reliable vine whip? To finish off the match, Jeanette brings out her Bellsprout which Ash feel is far inferior to his Pokémon. Once again, Ash lets his over-confidence take over.

Plot

Ash, Pikachu, Misty, and Brock watch Gary's fourth round match on the Rock Field, and are shocked when Gary is abruptly defeated by a Trainer named Melissa. This leaves Ash worried about his own chances during the fourth round, though Brock and Misty cheer him on. He later learns from Professor Oak that all of Pallet Town is cheering him on, which only makes him more nervous. Meanwhile, Team Rocket opens up a souvenir stand with the intent of luring in and stealing Pokémon from Trainers.

At the Grass Field, Ash starts his next match with Jeanette Fisher from Crimson City. He sends out Bulbasaur, and Jeanette uses Beedrill. The Bug-type Pokémon is about to hit Bulbasaur with Poison Sting, but Bulbasaur dodges it. Bulbasaur uses Razor Leaf, but Beedrill counters with Twineedle. Bulbasaur dodges the attack again. Ash then has Bulbasaur use Leech Seed, which instantly drains Beedrill's energy, before having Bulbasaur finish it off with Tackle. Jeanette then sends out her next Pokémon, Scyther. Bulbasaur launches a Razor Leaf at it, but Scyther uses Double Team to evade. Scyther gets in a few hits before Ash gets the idea to use Vine Whip on all the duplicates, so Bulbasaur will eventually hit the real one. The plan works, and Scyther is knocked out.

Unwavering, Jeanette calls on her last Pokémon, a Bellsprout. Ash laughs and calls it weak as the Flower Pokémon wiggles its body in an odd manner. Bulbasaur uses Tackle, but Bellsprout evades the attack with ease. It then picks up Bulbasaur, repeatedly slams him into the ground, and knocks Bulbasaur out, shocking Ash. Brock realizes that Jeanette's Bellsprout must be exceptionally trained, or else it would not be used in a League battle. Ash sends out Pikachu, and he uses Thunder Shock, but Bellsprout dodges the attack and uses Razor Leaf. Pikachu dodges it and tries to use Thunderbolt, but Bellsprout's roots keep him ingrained and immune to Electric attacks. Pikachu tries to punch and box-kick Bellsprout, but it slams him again and defeats him.

Down to his last Pokémon, Ash pauses for a second and then sends out his Muk, surprising his friends. Muk is able to absorb Bellsprout's Slam and Razor Leaf attacks with ease, then uses a Body Slam. Its powerful stench and weight smothers Bellsprout, and it soon faints. Ash wins the battle, and has now cleared all four preliminary fields to advance through to the next round of competition.
