Clefairy and the Moon Stone

Episode #106>
Ash, Brock and Misty continue onto Mt. Moon, where they find a man being attacked by Zubat. Pikachu uses its Thunder Shock to fend off the Zubat. The man is Seymour, a scientist who is studying Mt. Moon. He tells them the Zubat emerged from the cave in the daytime because some troublemakers have strung lights throughout the caverns and the lights are making the underground Pokémon confused. Seymour believes that Pokémon are from a different planet and tells Ash about the Moon Stone, which he believes that Pokémon came to earth in. Suddenly, they hear a Clefairy cry out and they find that Team Rocket is in the mountain, searching for the Moon Stone. Ash and Brock fight Team Rocket in a match while Misty, Seymour and Clefairy escape out of the back. During the match, Meowth slinks away and follows Misty. Butterfree blows Team Rocket out of the cave with its Whirlwind attack, then Ash and Brock run off to find Meowth. Back outside the cavern, Meowth corners Clefairy and demands the Moon Stone. Misty calls out her Staryu, who sends Meowth flying with its Water Gun attack. Later on, Clefairy leads Ash and the others to a huge cave. Inside, they find an area with an open roof, where the moon shines down on a huge boulder, the Moon Stone! Dozens of Clefairy appear and welcome Ash and the rest, and then they begin to dance around the Moon Stone. Team Rocket bursts in once again and steals the Moon Stone! Onix follows them underground while the group chases after them as Seymour stays behind. He tells the Clefairy that they must retrieve the Moon Stone. Meanwhile, Team Rocket is sliding down the mountain with the Moon Stone when Onix bursts from the ground and knocks them over. Ash and the rest arrive to battle, but the Clefairy appear and use Metronome. The attack blows up the Moon Stone and sends Team Rocket blasting off into the sky. The Moon Stone fragments fall on some of the Clefairy, evolving them into Clefable. The next day, Ash and the others leave behind Seymour and the Clefairy and move on to Cerulean City.

Ash: nervously "Uh-huh! Uh-huh!"
