being rudely awakened by Mr. Mime again, Ash, Misty and Brock head out
to train in the mountains, mainly to avoid doing chores for Ash's Mom all
morning. In the forest, they come across the Xanadu Plant Nursery, where
Ash and his mom came for plants when he was younger. Ash and Misty admire
the beautiful flowers, but Brock is entranced by a beautiful young woman
inside. They are found by Potter, the caretaker, and brought inside. He
tells them that Grass type trainers come to let their Grass Pokemon enjoy
the plants. Ash lets Bulbasaur out, who enjoys the flowers, but suddenly
slumps over when he sniffs a strange looking plant. When Ash tries to sniff
the plant to find out what happened, he is stopped by the beautiful woman
Brock saw, named Florinda. Florinda and her Gloom treat Bulbasaur with
Gloom's antidote. As Bulbasaur recovers Brock flirts with Florinda, who
tells him that she feels she isn't a good Pokemon trainer, because she
believes her Gloom is very weak and not good with battle. She even tried
to evolve Gloom, but for some reason, the Leaf Stone she bought didn't
work. Prof. Oak suddenly appears on the scene and tells them that someone
has been selling fake evolution stones in the area. Ash asks who sold her
the fake stone and Florinda decribes the trio that sold them -- who else,
Team Rocket! They are still inside the nursery, stealing some plants to
make their own stun spore. Everyone except Florinda and Gloom rushes to
stop them. Bulbasaur ties up Jessie and James with Vine Whip, but Meowth
uses the special plants to make a stun bomb, which paralyzes everyone.
Team Rocket grabs Pikachu and are about to run off with it when Florinda
arrives. Brock pleads with Florinda to help them. Unsure, she sends Gloom
to battle anyway. Gloom uses Double Team to confuse Team Rocket, then is
uses Solar Beam to blast them into the sky. Florinda heals everyone with
a special antidote. Brock is about to tell Florinda how he feels, but unfortunatly
for him, she tells Potter that he is the one she loves.
"Don't worry Brock, you'll find lots of other girls to reject you!" ~Ash, after Florinda chooses to be with Potter.
Who's That Pokemon?: Clefable!
