<i>On the way to Fennel Valley, Ash's Aipom scampers away and runs into a Weavile with an attitude. Aipom's up for a battle, but Weavile deals it a harsh defeat! Luckily, Ash and his friends meet a passing wilderness guardian named Kerrigan, who lets Aipom rest at his home. Kerrigan explains that the Weavile belonged to a local group of Weavile and Sneasel, but now it's alone and challenges any Trainer's Pokémon it sees. Ash resolves to help Kerrigan find the stray Weavile before anyone else is hurt.

Looking up after helping Aipom, the group notices Weavile has disappeared. A man runs over to check if they are okay. Upon finding the injured Aipom, he leads the gang to his hut in the woods to let her recover.
Meanwhile, {{TRT}} are busy eating rice balls, watching the whole thing. {{MTR}} says it would be best if they stayed away from the Weavile, but [[Jessie]] has other plans. While Meowth begins to cook up another reason to give it to {{an|Giovanni|the Boss}}, Jessie reveals she wants the Weavile all to herself. Angered, Meowth goes to fight the Weavile on his own.
The episode switches to a small cabin in the woods. The man from earlier introduces himself as [[Kerrigan]], part of the Wilderness Guard Corps. He's the one that watches over the forest. After the gang introduces themselves, they inquire about the Weavile. Kerrigan says the Weavile is a stray and that there is a gang of both Weavile and {{p|Sneasel}}. He claims that Weavile had left the group and now challenges random {{pkmn|Trainer}}s to battle it. Kerrigan decides it would be best if he went outside and searched around. The gang decides to tag along, leaving Aipom to rest after her harsh battle.
The episode switches to the stray Weavile. It begins to have a flashback about it and a female Sneasel in the rain. It seemed to have come from a harsh battle, limping away. After the flashback, Weavile jumps down from the tree it was in and runs off.
Meanwhile, the gang and Kerrigan are searching for Weavile. They come to a spot where Kerrigan says he's has seen Weavile many times. When there are no Weavile in sight, Max gets an idea to use Pikachu to sniff it out the Weavile. Pikachu sniffs the air and runs off with the gang right behind.
Again, the episodescene goesswitches back to the stray Weavile, looking in a river and watching its reflection. Meowth approaches the Weavileit, dressed as a fellow Weavile. Jessie and [[James]] watch as Meowth talks to the Weavile. Weavile doesn't seem to buy that Meowth is a fellow Weavile at all, even smacking his hand away when Meowth wantedwants to shake. Weavile seemedthreatens toMeowth, threatenleading Meowthto ashim Meowth ranrunning away nervously. Meowth says that the Weavile threatened to use Meowth as a target. Jessie, unsatisfied with Meowth's claims, angrily threatens to do worse to Meowth if he didndoesn't get back out there and talk to the Weavile. Before Meowth can react, theAsh and gangfriends showsshow up. Pikachu runs over to Weavile and begins to talk to it.
Meowth then translates for Jessie and James, saying that Pikachu asked what Weavile was doing, to which Weavile replied that it didn't need to answer that question. After that, Meowth couldn't follow. Jessie angrily stoodstands up, yelling at Meowth and revealing their position to the gang. After their motto, Jessie throws herself at Weavile's feet.
Soon, a Sneasel runs over, happy to see the stray Weavile. Meowth begins to translate their conversation. Weavile asks the Sneasel why she had followed it, to which Sneasel replies that she wasn't following the Weavile, she was escaping from the rogue Weavile that that particularthe stray Weavile had fought with for leadership. A flashback shows the fierce battle between the two Weavile and shows how the stray had gotten thosegot three scars on its cheek. Weavile had lost and that was why it became a stray.
Weavile claimed that its motives behind attacking the random trainersTrainers was to be big and tough and show everyone what its made of. The female Sneasel reveals she was sick of being pushed around by the rogue Weavile, which turned out to be extremely mean, so she ran away from the group. Immediately following the speech, the rogue Weavile shows up., Thewith three other Weavile as backup. Sneasel cowers behind the stray Weavile, to which Jessie respondedresponds that the Weavile was hers.
