When we last left our heroes, they were heading to Pallet Town. But first, they stop to hunt for Pokémon in a nearby patch of grass.
Ash: I think I'm gonna hunt for...
Ash: a Rattata!
Misty and Brock fall down.
Brock: Hey, why not a Raticate, idiot?
Ash: Because I don't have a Rattata yet! Good trainers always get Rattatas first.
Brock: That explains your failures.
Misty: Hey, how about that?
Misty points to a wild Tangela.
Ash: I gotta catch it!
Ash gets into battle with the Tangela.
Ash: Go, Wartortle!
Wartortle pops out of the Pok'eball.
Ash: Wartortle, Water Gun attack!
Wartortle weakened the wimpy Tangela so much that it was ready for capture.
Ash: Pok'eball, go!
The Pok'eball hit Tangela. It held the Tangela. 1...2...Ding! Tangela was caught!
Ash: Alright, I caught Tangela!
Brock: Using my Pok'eball. Thanks for the Tangela!
Ash: Oh, well. Wartortle, return!
Misty: Come on, let's go!
They surf to the edge of Pallet Town.
Misty: Come on, we're gonna miss it!
They run to Ash's Mom's house.
Ash: Hi, Mom!
Ash's Mom: Oh, Ash you came! Oh, you have 7 badges!
Ash: Uh, yeah. I'll turn on the TV.
TV: And now back to Pokémon.
Later, after a great episode of Pokémon...
Ash: Let's get going.
Ash, Misty, and Brock head out.
Misty: Hey, what's that?
Misty points to Prof. Oak's Lab.
Ash: Oh, that's Prof. Oak's Lab.
Suddenly, a dark figure stepped out of the laboratory.
Misty: Who is that?
Brock: I'll call him. Hey, idiot!
The figure approaches the group. It turns out to be...
Ash: Prof. Oak!
Misty: Prof. Oak!
Brock: A science nerd?
Prof. Oak: Yes, it's me, science nerd...er, Prof. Oak.(to Ash) Ash, I have very important info for you in my lab.(To Brock) Hey, aren't you Pewter's Gym Leader?
Brock: Why, yes I am.
Prof. Oak: Well stay out here. You stink in raising Pokémon.
Ash: Well, what are we waiting for? Let's go! Except you, Brock.
Everyone bursts into laughter. Then it fades out. Then it fades in again.
Brock: (to you) Yeah, I'm a human joke.(to himself) That's right. You'll get your revenge.
In Prof. Oak's Lab...
Prof. Oak: Ash, I have to inform you about a new species of Pokémon. The 151st!
Prof. Oak pulls down a picture of Mew.
Ash: That looks like the one in your...
Prof. Oak: (desperately) Uh...well, this creature is the mother of the horrible creation, Mewtwo.
Ash: How do you know this?
Prof. Oak: Simple, I have Mew...
Prof. Oak: In my Pokémon Red Version...
Misty: you cheating piece of crud! You used a GameShark!
Prof. Oak: (voice cracking) Um... no. I won a contest from Nintendo Power yesterday.
Misty: Hey... that contest is over!
Misty turns around she sees Prof. Oak run to his Luxury Sedan.
Prof. Oak: So long, !
He drove off. Later, he crashed into a chestnut tree.
Ash: Let's get out of here.
Ash, Misty, and Brock continue their journey after a visit to a nearby music store.
A song played through Ash's head as he continued his journey.
Song: We're on the road to Viridian City...Viridian City... We keep on tryin,' And the n we try some more... Stayin' together, tryin to find a place worth fighting for... Ash: Brock, please shut that music off!
Brock shuts his CD player off.
Brock: I'm sorry, Ash. That Nickelodeon store sold this for a discount.
Our heroes finally arrive in Viridian City. Once there, they head to the Viridian PokéCenter, giving their Pok'emon to a familiar face.
Nurse Joy: Hi, Ash!
Ash: Hello, Nurse Joy.
Nurse Joy: Well, you're lucky today. We just bought a new Speed-Heal machine, like in the game!
3 hours later...
Ash:(quietly) Some Speed-Heal.
Brock: Where did you get that, anyway?
Nurse Joy: Uh... Sega.
Our heroes find themselves in a Pokémon Mart.
Cashier: 3 Potions, 1 Max Revive, 2 full restores, and 1 Max Potion. Will that be all?
Cashier: That will be $300.
Ash gives the Cashier $300.
Misty: Ash is really loaded with money!
Cashier: Would you like this new Potion? I hear it works wonders.
Cashier: 50 dollars!
Ash pays him 50 dollars.
Ash: Well, let's get going!
Ash sees a man by the gym.
Man: The gym leader has returned!
Ash talked to him again.
Man: The gym leader has returned!
Ash: That's funny. That's all he can say.
Ash, Misty, and Brock enter the gym. Inside they are in a maze of walls.
They hear 2 familiar voices.
Jessie: Prepare for trouble!
James: Make it double!
Jessie: To protect the world from...( to Brock ) Hey! Hand over the boombox with the CD!
Brock gives it to Jessie. James turned it to the song, "Prepare for Trouble."
CD Jessie: (in a singsong voice) To protect the world from devastation...
CD James:(also in a singsong voice) To unite all people within our nation...
Giovanni breaks in with the music still on.
Giovanni: Stop this at once!
Meowth was dancing, not saying a word.
Suddenly, Team Rocket and the boombox were hurled into the air.
CD Jessie & CD James: Looks like Team Rocket's blasting off again!
With that, they disappeared.
Giovanni:(sarcastically) Oops! It looks like I accidentally pressed the "Look's like Team Rocket's Blasting off Again" button. Oh, well.(to Ash) Well, do you want a match or what?
Giovanni: Go, Dugtrio!
Dugtrio pops out of the Pokéball.
Ash: OK, Wartortle, GO!
Giovanni: Dugtrio, Dig!
Dugtrio dug a hole. After a few seconds, it attacked! It weakened Wartortle a lot! Ash tried to use a Potion but Pikachu(there he is), who was still in his backpack, threw everything except the special Potion.
Ash:(picking up the Potion) This will have to do.
Ash sprayed it on Wartortle. Nothing happened. Then he looked at the seal. It said: Made by Nickelodeon.
Ash: Oh, no! That stupid company ripped me off!
He looks at Wartortle.
Ash: You're evolving!
Wartortle evolved into Blastoise!
Misty: Wow! that's awesome!
Misty sees Brock crying.
Misty: Why are you crying?
Brock: Team Rocket stole my boombox! It cost me $650!
Brock sobs some more.
Giovanni: ( to Ash ) What are you waiting for, Christmas?
Ash: Now that you mentioned it, yes.
Giovanni: Come on!
Ash: Alright already! Blastoise, Hydro Pump!
Blastoise used a powerful blast of water that made Dugtrio faint!
Giovanni: I can't take any chances. Pok'eballs, GO!
Rhyhorn, Nidoqueen, Nidoking and Rhydon popped out of Giovanni's Pokéballs.
Ash: Hey, that's against the rules!
Giovanni: Team Rocket never play by the rules! If I win, you'll have to surrender your Pokémon.
Ash: Fine. Blastoise, give them...BLIZZARD!
Giovanni: Drat. You Cheap shot!
Blastoise froze his opponents.
Giovanni: You have beaten me.
Giovanni gives Ash the Earthbadge.
Giovanni pulls out a gun.
Giovanni: Gimme your Pokémon!
Ash: Oh, yeah? Blastoise, Hydro Pump!
The Hydro Pump sent Giovanni into the air.
Giovanni: Looks like Team Rocket's boss is blasting off again!
Giovanni disappeared like Jessie, James, & Meowth
Ash: Let's get out of here.
Ash, Misty and Brock get out and head on to Victory Road.
Ash: Yes! I'm ready for the Pok'emon League. Hey, where's Brock?
Misty: I dunno.
Ash: He'll catch up.
As Ash heads to the Pok'emon League, an inspiring song circled through his head.
Song: 2 B a Master, Pok'emon Master. I will B writin, A brand new...
Ash: Hey, it's Brock!
Ash spots Brock following them with a new boombox
Brock: I picked 2B a Master from a Pokémon CD!
Ash: Cool. Now shut that horrid music off!
