in a dark forest along the way to Saffron City, Ash comes across a small
girl in the woods. He asks her for directions, but she just runs off into
the brush. He chases after her, but ends up falling down a cliff. He calls
out Bulbasaur, who saves him with a Vine Whip. When Ash is safe, they discover
they're near Saffron City! They go into town, and are confronted by two
ladies who say they've won a contest! The ladies bring them into a building,
but once inside, they steal Pikachu and push Ash and the others onto a
warp tile! Ash and the rest appear in a blocked room, while Team Rocket
taunts them via a TV screen. The cameras malfunction though, and as Team
Rocket tries to fix it, the small girl from the woods rescues Pikachu and
Ash and brings the group back outside. They find themselves in front of
Saffron Gym! A passing jogger warns them not to enter, but Ash does anyway.
When he finally reaches Sabrina, he finds that the small girl! He challenges
her, and she says if Ash loses, he has to play with her. Ash agrees, then
the real Sabrina, a tough looking trainer, reveals herself. She calls out
her Abra and Ash calls out his Pikachu. Pikahu uses Thunderbolt, but Abra
evades the attack, then evolves into Kadabra! Kadabra plays with Pikachu,
using it's Psychic powers to slam Pikachu against the walls and ceiling.
Finally, Ash forfeits the match. Sabrina then transports them again, and
it looks like they've arrived in a small town. After a little investigation,
though, Ash and the others realize that they're in a small model town!
Sabrina's doll chases them through the town, but they are saved by the
strange jogger. Back outside the gym, the jogger warns Ash not to challenge
Sabrina again. Ash refuses, but even though the jogger tries to use his
own Psychic powers to drive Ash away, Ash won't give up. The jogger takes
heart, and tells Ash if he can capture a ghost Pokemon, he might stand
a chance against Sabrina.
"It's Team Rocket!... Eww, gross, they both kissed me! ~Ash, after Team Rocket captures them.
Misty: You're sense of direction's so bad, you can't find yourself in a mirror!
Ash: Well you crack mirrors!
Did You Notice?...
Meowth normally only has three fingers, but when he gives a victory sign after catching Pikachu, he has four.
Who's That Pokemon?: Abra!
