'''Leave It To Brocko!''' (Japanese: '''タケシにおまかせ!''' ''Leave It to {{tt|Takeshi|Brock}}!'') is the 14th episode of the {{series|Diamond & Pearl}}, and the 480th episode of the [[Pokémon anime]]. It first aired in Japan, as part of a one-hour special along with ''[[DP013|A Staravia Is Born!]]'', on December 21, 2006, and in the United States on June 26, 2007.
During the night, a giant tree is shown, where the {{p|Seedot}} [[evolution]]ary line live. A Seedot falls down a branch and kicks a {{p|Nuzleaf}} off. It continues sleeping, landing on a {{p|Vileplume}}, running off into the forest. The next morning, the Vileplume continues running, emitting pollen and causing the Nuzleaf to sneeze, making the Vileplume run faster and dislodging Nuzleaf. It wakes up and realizes it is not at the tree. It tries to find its way back, running and falling off a cliff.
Meanwhile, {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} continue on towards [[Oreburgh City]], one giant mountain in the distance separating them from the city, but a [[Pokémon Center]] is at the foot of the mountain. Ash wants to keep going, but {{an|Dawn}} wants to rest at the Center. {{TP|Brock|Bonsly}} cries, {{an|Brock}} feeding him solid [[Pokémon food]], everyone noticing how much Bonsly has grown. They notice a gust of wind nearby and rush to check it. A [[Nurse Joy]] tries to approach the same Nuzleaf, but it [[Move|attacks]] with {{m|Razor Leaf}}. Brock steps in to protect her, but his romantic advance results in another {{m|Poison Jab}} from {{TP|Brock|Croagunk}} and being dragged. Nuzleaf attacks Ash and Dawn, but they avoid the attack as Dawn checks her [[Pokédex]]. Brock gets back up and mentions that Nuzleaf are generally afraid of humans, but Brock steps forward and hides his hands, approaching and getting down eye level, keeping Nuzleaf calm. Brock pulls a leaf off a tree and blows on it like a whistle, calming Nuzleaf more. Brock hands it an [[Oran Berry]], but it refuses. Brock brings out Bonsly and has it eat some of the Oran before offering it to Nuzleaf. Nuzleaf accepts it as Brock presents a whole plate full of [[Berry|Berries]]. Nurse Joy notices how Brock was able to calm the {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} as he uses a [[Super Potion]] on Nuzleaf’sNuzleaf's wound, healing it. Nurse Joy mentions that the thousand year old tree nearby houses the Seedot evolutionary family, the only area to spot the Seedot family in the vicinity. The group decides to take the Nuzleaf to the tree. {{TRT}} watches nearby, wanting to steal Nuzleaf, {{MTR}} visualizing another [[Boss fantasy]] about {{an|Giovanni}} having Nuzleaf.
As the group walks, Bonsly and Nuzleaf bond, as Nuzleaf believes Bonsly is also a {{t|Grass}} type. Meowth, disguised as a {{p|Shiftry}}, appears as well as a [[List of Team Rocket's disguises|disguised]] Jessie and James. They say that “Shiftry”"Shiftry" is also trying to find the tree and try to lure Nuzleaf over. However, Dawn checks her Pokédex and it identifies Meowth, which destroys the disguise, even more by Meowth's speech. Team Rocket removes the disguise and recites their {{motto}}. Their balloon comes up and they board, using a bazooka net to nab both Nuzleaf and Bonsly. Before they get away, Brock grabs the net as Ash calls out {{AP|Staravia}}. [[Jessie's Seviper]] uses {{m|Haze}} to stop Staravia and Team Rocket gets away.
Team Rocket puts the Pokémon in a cage and bind Brock to a tree. Brock tries to find a way to get free as Team Rocket gets hungry, noting that the food they have is merely garnish, not a complete meal. Brock gets an idea and says that he can turn the food into a full meal. They release him and Brock makes a full course meal, Team Rocket diving in. They are so occupied by the food that Brock manages to slip away, taking the whole cage and darting away. When they get far enough, Brock has Bonsly try {{m|Double-Edge}} on the cage. He manages to bend a bar, but not enough, and Bonsly starts crying. Brock reassures his Pokémon and he tries again, this time breaking a bar and opening the cage. Bonsly dances happily but begins glowing as he [[Evolution|evolves]] into {{TP|Brock|Sudowoodo}}. Brock is happy as he {{wp|salute}}s him.
Meanwhile, Ash and Dawn continue to search for Brock, Staravia not finding anything. As they continue searching, Brock continues on, Nuzleaf riding on top of Sudowoodo. They see the tree and continue on while Team Rocket flies in [[Team Rocket's mechas#Team Rocket's Meowth balloon|their balloon]] trying to find Brock after he slipped away. Brock runs into a fast-moving river and decides to cross. Knowing Sudowoodo hates water, he recalls him, but Nuzleaf crashes to the ground and starts crying. Brock brings Sudowoodo back out and tells him that Nuzleaf needs him. They start crossing, taking it slowly. Sudowoodo almost slips at one point, but Brock catches him. Just as they reach the end, Brock takes Nuzleaf off Sudowoodo as Team Rocket arrives nearby. Sudowoodo is paralyzed by fear as [[Jessie]] sends out Seviper and Brock sends out Croagunk. Seviper uses {{m|Bite}}, but Croagunk takes it without blinking. Effortlessly, he uses Poison Jab to send Seviper back. Seviper rushes forward with {{m|Poison Tail}}, but Croagunk’sCroagunk's {{m|Poison Sting}} stops it, also hitting the balloon and causing an explosion, creating black smoke that Ash and Dawn spot, running towards it. Seviper uses {{m|Wrap}} on Croagunk, but he still manages to use {{m|Brick Break}}. While Seviper continues to Wrap, Croagunk repeats Brick Break multiple times, eventually dislodging Seviper and [[fainting|knocking it out]]. Brock congratulates Croagunk but notices he sitting there unresponsive, knocked out as well!
Brock recalls Croagunk as [[James]] sends {{TP|James|Carnivine}} to attack with Bullet Seed. Brock shields Nuzleaf as Sudowoodo watches. He snaps out of fear and jumps to shore, getting wet but not noticing. Sudowoodo steps up and dodges Carnivine’sCarnivine's Bite before hitting with Double-Edge. Carnivine uses {{m|Bullet Seed}} but Sudowoodo uses {{m|Mimic}} to counter with Bullet Seed. Ash and Dawn arrive, noticing that Bonsly evolved. Ash wants to step in and battle, but Brock declines in that Sudowoodo can handle its first battle since evolving. Carnivine fires another Bullet Seed, Sudowoodo blocking and charging forward with another Double-Edge. Carnivine bites Sudowoodo and pins it to the ground, but Sudowoodo uses {{m|Flail}} to throw Carnivine off. Carnivine tries another Bullet Seed, but Sudowoodo dodges and uses Mimic to fire Bullet Seed and knock out Carnivine.
Team Rocket sends out {{TP|Jessie|Dustox}} and {{TP|James|Cacnea}}. Ash decides to send {{AP|Pikachu}} in, but a gust of wind overcomes the field as a real Shiftry appears. Meowth tries to convince Shiftry that Ash and his friends are the bad guys and they slip away while Shiftry advances. However, Team Rocket gets back in their balloon, now with a Wobbuffet design, and grabs Nuzleaf with a mecha arm. Shiftry uses {{m|Razor Wind}} to pop the balloon and free Nuzleaf. Shiftry saves Nuzleaf from the fall with a gust of wind. Ash has Pikachu use {{m|Thunderbolt}} to take down the [[Team Rocket's mechas|Wobballoon]] for good. Nuzleaf returns to the tree as Ash and his friends continue on to Oreburgh City.
