Ash and friends arrive at the Fushia Gym only to find that no one is home except for a lonely Venonat who leads them into a bunch of traps. At first they meet Ai who is Venonat's trainer and Ai's brother who is the leader of the Fushia Gym. Team Rocket finds the Fushia Gym in an attempt to steal some rare and unusual Pokémon but all they manage to gather up is a bunch of Voltorb. Misty's Phsyduck lets itself out of its poke ball and tries to battle Team Rocket on its own. Can Ash and crew save the Pokemon of the Fushia Gym before Team Rocket can take off with them.
