Of Meowth and Pokémon (Japanese: アルバイトはたいへんニャース！？ Nyarth with a Part-Time Job!?) is episode seventeen of Pokémon Chronicles, and the seventh side story episode of Weekly Pokémon Broadcasting Station in Japan. It was first broadcast in Japan on March 4, 2003, in the UK on September 14, 2005, and in the USA on October 7, 2006.
It's another beautiful day in the big city as Meowth happily strolls down the street. He looks around at the many food posters and remembers his picnic basket. He gets a little angry, and then decides he wants a pizza. He gets a job as a pizza delivery boy, and the owner hands him some pizzas. He then gets a plan to get the job done quicker.
Meowth goes to the tire playground and the Pokémon gather round. Teddiursa smells the pizzas and tries to grab one, but Meowth tells it to back off. He then tells them that when he gets done with his deliveries, they can all enjoy some pizza, and as planned, the Pokémon offer to help. Meowth grins and hands each Pokémon an address and a pizza. The Pichu brothers fight over who gets to carry their pizza, but the haired one ends up winning. Meowth laughs out loud, exclaiming that with the Pokémon delivering the pizzas, he won't have too.
Smoochum runs down the street carrying its pizza. It turns a corner to find the road is blocked. Suddenly, a sewer erupts in front of it and a Squirtle wearing the same shades as Ash's jumps out. Two more erupt form sewers surrounding Smoochum. The leader explains that it has entered their territory. Smoochum tries to run, but they surround it and use water gun. Smoochum goes flying sky high and is about to fall on Wooper. Wooper notices this and tries to Water Gun it away, but it doesn't work. Both Pokémon lay on the ground stunned with their now soggy pizzas next to them.
Teddiursa strolls down the street as well. It then realizes it's hungry and looks around to make sure no one is looking. It then sits by some trash cans and prepares to chow down, but a Snorlax sleeping in the alley rolls over on top of it! Meanwhile, the Pichu bros are still delivering their pizza.
They take a short cut through an alley and find a fence blocking their way. The other Pichu snatches the pizza from the other and jumps on a board. The box on the other end flies up then crashes back down, sending Pichu sailing over the fence. It thinks it has landed safely, but it landed right on a Houndour's head! It runs off as the other Pichu makes it over the fence. It calls to its brother and the two run as fast as they can as the Houndour gives chase.
Magby is looking at its address, wondering how to get there. The Pichu bros suddenly smash into it, sending both their pizzas flying. The pizzas smack into Houndour but it keeps coming. Magby is now aggravated, and it prepares a Flamethrower. The Pichu bros dodge and the attack smashes Houndour right in the face, making a huge explosion. Houndour sits there stunned, burnt to a crisp. It then yelps and rushes off.
The Pokémon return to Meowth with their destroyed pizzas. Meowth freaks out, knowing he'll never get his pizza now. He returns to the pizza parlor, and in turn is fired. The Pokémon watch as the owner kicks him out. He then gets a job cleaning the park. The Pichu bros peek out from behind a tree, and Meowth just think he's seeing things. All the Pokémon then appear, and Meowth freaks out, telling them to leave before they cause trouble again. The Pokémon all pull out brooms and offer to do his work for him.
Meowth lounges on a bench, happy that he can relax. The Pichu bros dust a window when one yawns. They talk for a little bit, and then head away from the window. Meowth is now sipping coffee and relaxing further. He then spots the Pichu bros on a statue of a crescent moon on a globe. The moon is held from falling off by strings, but it begins to rock back and forth at the Pichu's cleaning.
Meowth rushes over there and one jumps off, exclaiming that they are almost done. Meowth notices the other Pichu still on and sees the ropes break on the opposite side of it. He lunges and grabs them before the moon falls off. He now hangs dangling from the ropes as the crescent moon teeters back and forth. The Pichu flies off and sparks a bit. Wooper's Water Gun goes haywire, and it smashes Magby in the face. It gets mad again and uses Flamethrower, striking the ropes and burning them away. The crescent moon falls into some pillars, which in turn create a domino effect. Pillar after pillar falls over; the last smashing into the pool and breaking the fountain. The area floods and the Pokémon are all washed away. The scene zooms out to show that this park was actually on top of a building; which is now leaking water down its sides.
Meowth then gets the boot from that job too. He now sits in a nearby park, very depressed. The Pokémon group shows up again and he freaks out, but they just hold out a bunch of acorns for him. Meowth is in tears at how they still want to help him and he chows down on one. As soon as he puts it in his mouth, Meowth realizes acorns are sick. He still wants to be polite and pretends he likes them. He takes another one and reluctantly puts it in. The Pokémon all happily watch him eat as the scene rises.
