Pikachu follows it and when it stops, it sees weird horn moving on the surface of the lake. Pikachu calls Ash. When half-sleeping Ash comes on the shore, there happens a big splash. And who made this splash: it's Rhydon! Ash tries to explain to Brock and Misty that he really saw a Rhydon in the lake, but they don't believe him because they know that rock Pokemon can't swim. But their arguing interrupts girl named Pietra and her Marrill. Pietra explains that Rhydon is one of Pokemon that can learn Surf. But she needs to capture that Rhydon to clear the cave blocking the way to town. Other Rock and Ground Pokemon can do it,but there's water coming from rocks at the top,and these Pokemon afraid of water. Even Brock's Onix ran away like a chicken. So Ash and co. try to help Pietra to catch that Rhydon. Meanwhile Team Rocket heard in the bushes about their talking and tried to catch that Rhydon too. Pietra said that these woods are full of apples that Rhydon likes. So it may be somewhere in there. Team Rocket where walking trying to find Rhydon, and then they heard chomping coming out of the bushes. They ran there to see if it's Rhydon, but it was just Wobbuffet eating apples! Of course there were plenty of them. Then Ash, Pietra and others walk and see apple leftovers falling from the bushes and when run to see who it is, they find out that it's Team Rocket! Then Team Rocket start their motto with mumbling. But then they see that Rhydon walking near them. Rhydon got angry that Team Rocket were eating these apples and blasted them off! Pietra asked Rhydon to battle and capture it, but Rhydon ran away and dived into water. But she had an idea. The island in the middle of the lake is full of these apples. Maybe Rhydon swam there. Everybody called out their water Pokemon including Marrill and the set on Pietra's boat. Then all Pokemon dived in and saw Rhydon there. But they were no match for it. Rhydon's Horn Drill created whirlpool and all Pokemon got fainted. Pietra dived in and grabbed Rhydon's head. Rhydon trying to get her off, dived very deep into the lake, but Pietra still didn't let it go. Rhydon, seeing her running out of the air, swam to the surface and onto the shore. She asked it again id it can battle, and Rhydon hardly agreed. While then Team Rocket set the trap for Rhydon and fell asleep .After a few minutes they woke up by hearing someone falling ito the trap. But when the came there, they saw Wobbuffet! OK, it's all for Team Rocket. Marrill started with Watergun, but Rhydon's Horn Drill protected. Rhydon the used the Stomp attack, and Marrill dodged it. Then Marrill used Tackle, and then it got pushed itself. Rhydon was ready for Body Slam, and Pietra commanded Marrill to use its Bubblebeam. Rhydon fell down.

Fight For The Light!
Ash, Misty and Brock finally make it to Olivine City!!! Ash goes in the gym where he finds the "gym leader" is a girl named Jasmine. She brings her Onix out which looks shiny. Ash releases Totodile, but when Totodile uses Water Pump, Onix isn't weakened! Then a girl comes out that says she's the REAL Jasmine. She says this girl is Janine, one of her students. She has a Magnemite on her shoulder. Brock naturally falls in love with her. Unfortunately, she can't battle with Ash right now because she needs to take care of "Sparkle". Ash and crew wonder who Sparkle is. Meanwhile, Team Rocket try to get jobs at the gym!! They need pokemon badges, so they can't get in. Janine, it turns out, actually used water-proof wax to put on her Onix, which explains why Totodile couldn't weaken it. It also explains why he was so shiny. Jasmine says she and Onix need more experience, so Janine washes Onix off outside and tells Ash how she cheated. Janine says Jasmine went to the lighthouse. Ash and co. find two lighthouses and one of them has an Ampharos. (The final evolved form of Mareep) Jasmine comes and says Sparkle is the name of her Ampharos. For years, Sparkle used it's electricity to make the light for the lighthouse. Even though a modern lighthouse was built, they still wanted to carry on Sparkle's tradition. However, lately Sparkle isn't feeling well and needs medicine that's all the way in Cianwood City. Team Rocket arrives and put a red shell thing that contains Weezing. It smokescreens everyone. Brock tries to save Sparkle but they are trapped in a cage by Team Rocket. Just then, Janine and Onix spot Team Rocket in the Meowth balloon. They go by the ocean where Onix can't get them. Arbok fights Onix and Onix jumps and hangs on to Arbok. Janine comes and uses a rock to break the lock (rhymes!) on Sparkle and Brock's cage and they escape. Since Pikachu can't effect Onix, it electircutes it going up to Arbok and Team Rocket in the balloon. Onix whirls them around in their usual "blasting off again". Jasmine says Ash, Janine, Misty and Brock can go on a ferry ride to Cianwood City to get Sparkle's medicine. Ash is disappointed he never got to battle Jasmine but he'll be back later. Team Rocket hang onto the anchor of the ferry boat ride following Ash.

Machoke, Machoke Man!
Ash, Misty, Brock and Janina (a girl who was assistant to Jasmine, the wannabe) sail toward Cianwood city. First they got to the store to get Ampharos's medicine. After they said goodbye to Janina, Ash walked toward to Cianwood gym. But then they stopped, because they saw a man on a field battling with Machoke! As they seen the battle, the man was just practicing Machoke's powerful attacks. He dodged every one of them until he got attacked by Karate Chop. And then he ran crying to Machoke and they hugged. Then he saw Ash and others and called them down. He talked about his Machoke's training for a while, and after made them do some exercise. They were marching while walking to the Gym. When they came there, Ash and co. saw students with Pokemon who called the man their teacher. Then man introduced himself as Chuck, the fighting Gym Leader of this Gym. He called them inside to have a little snack. But snack wasn't so little. Everybody got a big plate with porridge stuff including little Pikachu. That plate was bigger than it itself. After having a good meal, Chuck called Ash to battle with him. But Chuck's wife said that her Flabby (that’s what she called Chuck) will be no match for Ash. The battle started. As weird as always, Chuck said that in this two-on-two battle he will use Poliwrath and Machoke (he shouldn't tell what Pokemon he's gonna use). Poliwrath came out of Pokeball. As Ash's strategy he chose Pikachu. Pikachu started out with its Thunderbolt but, Poliwrath dodged it. Then Ash commanded Pikachu to use Thunderbolt one after another. Poliwrath dodged some of these, but last one shocked. Even if Water Pokemon are weak against Electric, Poliwrath still didn't faint yet. Pikachu tried its Quick Attack, and Poliwrath dodged it again. Then it used Doubleslap, and after Tackle. For some reason Pikachu fainted. On another side Team Rocket are walking weakly. Then they saw a small house and run in. There they saw a big bowl filled with porridge. They ate the whole bowl, and then Chuck's wife came in. She thought that Team Rocket were Chuck's students. She gave them to do some chores for her. And said if they do, they are going to have a great meal after. So Team Rocket went crazy! Ash chose Bayleaf as his last Pokemon for this battle. Bayleaf started out with its Razorleaf, and then Vine Whip knocked Poliwrath down. Then Chuck chose Machoke. But first he commanded it to use Karate Chop on him to get into shape. Ash tried to do the same thing with Bayleaf. Bayleaf used Body Slam on Ash, and Ash tried to stay on his feet. After it the real battle started. Bayleaf just kept dodging all of Machoke's attacks, but that still didn't help. Machoke tried to use its Mega Punch which hardly attacked Bayleaf. Bayleaf was still in the battle. It used its Vine Whip to wrap Machoke's hands. They kept pulling to each others side. Then Machoke used Submission, and it and Bayleaf rolled together. Bayleaf then got blown into the air, but its Vine Whips were still attached to Machoke. Then by slightly moves Bayleaf threw Machoke on the battlefield. And after then used Razorleaf. While Machoke was still weak, it used Body Slam and finished Machoke! Chuck returned his Machoke and handed Ash his Storm badge. While it was dark, Ash called to Olivine city if he can go back. But Janine said even after medicine Ampharos still needs some time to recover, so Ash dodn't know what to do. Chuck and his wife said that Ash can try to go visit Whirl Islands, in case he interested in some rare Pokemon living there. Ash agreed and took the ticket to Whirl Islands. Team Rocket were sitting on the stairs full of food and happy. At least they didn't get blasted off in this episode. This episode finishes at Ash, Misty and Brock are sailing off to Whirl Islands.
