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 [[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|Taillow|Swellow}} drops a fruit down, and they ask Taillow 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.
{{TRT}} 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|Treecko|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 Corphish 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 Pokémon to feel inferior.
