== Synopsis ==
As {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} travel to [[Petalburg City]] so Ash can obtain his 5th [[Badge|Gym Badge]], they decide to take a break and have a picnic. Ash decides to take out all of his Pokémon out of their [[Poké Ball]]s and introduces the team to his newly evolved {{AP|Grovyle|Sceptile}} with all of the team being delighted except for {{AP|Corphish}}. While Corphish tries getting fruit for the gang but eventually fails due to his overwhelming power, Grovyle {{m|Leaf Blade|cuts down}} the fruit and they can happily eat, making Corphish more jealous of Grovyle. Then, a {{p|Ludicolo}} suddenly appears (belonging to a Trainer named {{ho|Poncho}}). Poncho, after examining {{TP|Brock|Lombre|Ludicolo}} asks to have a battle. If any of the gang lost, they would have to give Poncho their sandwiches, and if Poncho lost, he would buy them some cheeseburgers. Poncho chooses his trusty Ludicolo, And although Ash was probably going to choose {{AP|Pikachu}}, Grovyle came wanting to battle, but not before Corphish would interfere. In the end Corphish loses, but does not admit defeat and runs off. The gang then figures out that they have been praising Grovyle far more than the now ignored Corphish, causing the aforementioned Pokemon to feel inferior. {{TRT}} then sees Ludicolo, his trainer and Corphish having lunch and {{MTR}} has one of his fantasies involving {{an|Giovanni}} and Ludicolo. Team Rocket captures Poncho and Ludicolo but Corphish saves the two and helps lead Ash and friends find him. In the end, they all have lunch and go to Petalburg City, where [[Norman]] awaits.
As {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} travel to [[Petalburg City]] so Ash can obtain his 5th [[Badge|Gym Badge]], they decide to take a break and have a picnic. Ash, as per usual, is excited for his upcoming match, but {{an|May}} and {{an|Max}} remind him that their dad is very powerful. {{an|Brock}} then reminds Ash that he hasn't chosen the three Pokémon that he will battle with, so Ash takes out all of his Pokémon. This is when he introduces his newly evolved {{AP|Grovyle|Sceptile}}. Every member of the team is delighted, except for {{AP|Corphish}, who is a little disgruntled seeing the new Pokémon.
 
Ash isn't sure who he should choose, since he can't recall any of [[Norman]]'s Pokémon except for {{p|Vigoroth}}. Max says that he would never tell what other Pokémon Norman has, as he doesn't want to give Ash an advantage over his father. When Max asks May who she would cheer for, Ash or Norman, May admits that, even though she wants her father to win, she also doesn't want Ash to lose.
Suddenly, {{AP|Tailow|Swellow} drops a fruit down, and they ask Tailow where it came from. They followed it to a tree filled with many of the same fruit, and wanted some more. All of Ash's Pokémon tried to get the fruit, none of them having success. Corphish had the worst try, as he was too rough with the fragile fruit. Then, Grovyle tried, and he was able to cut down the fruit with ease using a simple {{m|Leaf Blade}}. This resulted in a lot of praise from Ash and his friends, and Corphish became jealous of the attention that Grovyle was receiving.
 
Team Rocket suddenly interrupts, grabbing all of Ash's Pokémon in an electricity-proof net. Corphish was unsuccessful in breaking through the deluxe net. When it looked hopeless, Grovyle cuts the net open with Leaf Blade and frees all of them. It then sends Team Rocket flying, and the gang praise it even more. Brock remarks on how much stronger Grovyle had become since evolving from {{AP|Treeko|Sceptile}. May wishes out loud that Grovyle was hers due to its amazing power, and Corphish becomes extremely jealous.
 
When the gang settles down for lunch, a {{p|Ludicolo}} suddenly appears, along with his bongo-playing trainer named {{ho|Poncho}}. Poncho, after examining {{TP|Brock|Lombre|Ludicolo}} asks to have a battle. If any of the gang lost, they would have to give Poncho their sandwiches, and if Poncho lost, he would buy them some cheeseburgers.
 
Poncho chooses his trusty Ludicolo, and although Ash was probably going to choose {{AP|Pikachu}}, Grovyle came wanting to battle. Corphish, seeing this, came to interfere, and Ash chose to battle with Corphish. During the whole battle, Ash and Corphsh were not in sync, and in the end, Ludicolo, an enemy they had underestimated, won. Corphish, unhappy with the result, ran off into the forest. The gang then realizes that they have been praising Grovyle far more than the now ignored Corphish, causing the aforementioned Pokemon to feel inferior.
 
 
Corphish, all alone in the forest, hears a bongo beating and traces it back to Poncho and his Ludicolo. Corphish demands a rematch, and Poncho tries to refuse. {{TRT}} then sees Ludicolo, his trainer and Corphish, and {{MTR}} has one of his fantasies involving {{an|Giovanni}} and Ludicolo. Shortly after, Team Rocket captures Poncho and Ludicolo in a net, but Corphish saves the two by grabbing on and using {{m|Crabhammer}} on the balloon as it floats away. It deflates, and goes flying around the forest crazily, eventually landing near the gang.
 
The gang sees that it's Team Rocket's balloon, and then finds Poncho, Ludicolo, and Corphish. Poncho explains what happened, and says that Corphish saved them. Ash encourages Corphish, and then they battle Team Rocket together, defeating them and sending them blasting off again.
 
After that, the gang and Poncho eat some of Brock's stew, and Poncho tells them he felt badly about taking their sandwiches. Corphish is happy once again, and shows off to Grovyle, who gives a nod of acceptance. Then, Ash suddenly challenges Poncho to a battle, this time with his {{AP|Torkoal}}. They win this time around. The episode ends, and Ash is reminded of how he must work with his Pokémon in a battle. Soon after, they continue off to Petalburg City, where Norman awaits.
