With three weeks left until the [[Pokémon League]] competition {{Ash}} has fallen behind in training. On the couch of Ash's home, Ash and {{an|Brock}} watch the [[Elite Four]]'s [[Bruno]] battling a {{pkmn|Trainer}} with his {{p|Hitmonchan}}. As Bruno commands a {{m|Thunder Punch}}, the TV is switched off. {{an|Misty}} chastises Ash for goofing off. Ash tells {{an|Misty}} they were studying the tape of Bruno. Brock adds that they were learning the 'powers of Pokémon' despite not knowing what those power were. Ash comments that Bruno could train him to learn the power. However Brock and Misty lament that the famous Bruno wouldn't waste his time with them. Ash confidently states that if they knew how to find him then Bruno would definitely teach him. Just then [[Delia Ketchum|Ash's mother]] enters telling the group that Bruno's may be at his secret training ground, on [[Mt. Hideaway]]. Ash jumps up and tells his mother not to make dinner as they are going up to Mt. Hideaway.
Now on their way to the mountain, Misty tells the group that Mt. Hideaway appears to be only 7 miles away. Ash and Brock, completely exhausted, convince Misty that she should rest. The group rest at a house where an old lady brings them food and drink. Ash asks her if she knows of a Pokémon Trainer named Bruno training around the area. The old lady doesn't recognize the name but tells the trio that Pokémon Trainers have been stealing her meatball kebabs. As Ash and Brock eat, a bunch of windchimes start rattling. The lady angrily tells them that the thieves must be back again. Push broom in hand the lady runs out followed by Ash and company. They see three hermits running off with sacks in hand. The lady gives chase as Ash recognizes the bandits as {{TRT}}. As they are about to start their {{motto}}, Meowth pulls out a remote and speeds it up, leaving Jessie and James exhausted. After this they tell Ash that because they always get beaten by him they have decided to become hermits and live off the land. Meowth adds they're also living off the old lady's meatball kebabs. The enraged old lady gives Team Rocket a beating with her broom and the troublesome trio run away leaving behind the kebabs. The lady tells the heroes that the mountain is known for [[Giant Pokémon|overgrown]] {{p|Onix}}; the areas fertile soil makes them grow larger. The lady assures them that, despite their size, the Onix are very gentle.
Following the gigantic Onix tracks, Meowth believes that they have no hope of catching such a big Pokémon. Jessie and James reveal that they have an unexpected weapon to catch Onix. At the end of the Onix tracks, Team Rocket set themselves in wait of the Onix. The ground begins rumbling as an enormous Onix bursts from underground. The Onix is much bigger than they were expecting and Meowth suggests they forget the idea. Jessie stubbornly says that they came for an Onix and that's what they would get.
Ash, Misty, and Brock are heading back down the mountain when they hear a loud noise. They race off to the source of the sound. Meanwhile Team Rocket are blasting missiles at the giant Onix. The smoke clears and the Onix is completely unharmed and begins advancing towards them. Terrified the three run into a nearby cave. The Onix begins {{m|Tackle|tackling}} the wall of the cave causing it to start collapsing. Team Rocket are shouting for help as Ash and the others arrive. To save Team Rocket, Brock sends out his {{TP|Brock|Onix}}, Misty sends out her {{TP|Misty|Staryu}} and Ash chooses {{AP|Squirtle}}. Brock orders his Onix to use {{m|Tackle}}, but it gets knocked back due toby the sizewild ofOnix's the huge Onixsize. Misty tells Staryu to use {{m|Water Gun}} but it is largely ineffective. Ash orders Squirtle to use Water Gun too, and the combined {{t|Water|water}} attacks cause the Onix to recoil from the cave. Team Rocket use the opportunity to run for their lives. The wild Onix recovers from the double Water Gun attack and uses its tail to hit Staryu and Squirtle and Brock's Onix before sending Team Rocket on their way. The Onix then notices the heroes standing on the ledge above. The Onix tackles the edge where they are standing, causing Ash to lose his balance and fall into right in front of Onix. {{AP|Pikachu}} jumps down and uses his {{m|ThunderShockThunder Shock}} attack, but Onix just shakes it off. Pikachu is about to try again before Ash grabs him telling Pikachu that electric attacks won't work. They huddle together awaiting Onix's attack. But before Onix can strike, a lightning-fast Bruno leaps in and carries Ash and Pikachu to safety. Bruno looks down at the Onix which is thrashing around. Ash and Brock ask him what Pokémon and attack he will use. Bruno states that he will not use a Pokémon.
Bruno jumps down and asks Onix why it is acting so violent. The Onix dives at him several times, but Bruno dodges its hits asking it why it is attacking him. Bruno then jumps on Onix's head. Onix whips his tail around, which misses Bruno and instead connects with its own head. Bruno requests it not to be afraid of him and asks it to let him know what it is feeling. He closes his eyes and concentrates for some time. He then starts feeling around Onix's body. Eventually he finds something between Onix's rocks. Asking Onix to bear with the momentary pain, he strains before pulling out a {{p|Sandslash}}. The heroes are shocked and Ash checks it on his [[Pokédex]]. Apparently the Sandslash was irritating Onix the whole time and causing it to act aggressively. Bruno lets the {{type|Ground}} Pokémon go and asks Onix if it wants to come with him. Onix accepts and Bruno catches it in a {{ball|Poké}}. He jumps back up to Ash, Misty, and Brock. He then tells them the true secret is for Pokémon and humans to care for each other like Ash and {{AP|Pikachu}}. Both of them look at each other and start laughing. Bruno farewells the trio telling Ash he looks forward to facing him in battle. Ash and Pikachu laugh together as they are now one day closer to the Pokémon League.
