Summary
On his quest to become a Pokémon Master, Ash and his friends continue their journey to Nacrene City, the location of the Nacrene Gym, in order to get the second badge. A young woman shouts out, “Hey Hey!” dashing down the dirt path in an attempt to catch up to our heroes. Ash, Iris, and Cilan turn to see the woman trip on a small rock in her pathway, forcing her to lose her balance, knocking Ash and Cilan into a nearby stream. After taking a splash into the stream, Ash and Cilan remove their clothing and prepare a fire and begin drying their drenched clothes. The woman begins apologizing, shouting that she is sorry repeatedly. Iris questions the woman who she is. She looks towards Ash, responding that she has a delivery for him. The woman rushes over to Ash and presents her Xtransciever to Ash, initiating a call into Professor Juniper. The connection is successfully established with Juniper greeting Ash and questioning him on his progress with gym battles. Ash responds that he currently has one badge. Juniper apologizes to Ash for not giving him a Badge Case during his prior visit and has given one to her assistant, Bel. The young woman introduces herself as Bel, the assistant that Juniper had been referring to. Bel begins rummaging through her shoulder bag, attempting to secure the badge case to present to Ash.

After a few moments, Bel continues to rummage around through her purse, still unable to locate the case. Ash and Cilan begin drying their clothes and finishing dressing as Bel finally manages to recover the badge case from her unorganized bag. The badge case is two-toned (black and blue) and covered in dust. Ash receives the case from Bel, opening it to reveal eight slots used to hold a trainer’s victory badges of Unova. Ash places his Tri Badge in its slot, stating that he wants to collect all eight badges soon. Cilan reminds Ash that they are very close to his next gym battle in Nacrene City. Bel questions Ash to allow her to examine the badge. Ash obliges, handing the case over to Bel. As Bel begins to grasp the case, a wild Minccino snatches the case and dashes into the dense forest foliage. Ash dashes away in pursuit of Minccino, following shortly behind by Bel, Iris, and Cilan. Ash soon becomes exhausted from the pursuit, stopping at a fallen tree in his path and begins gasping for air stating that he can’t believe how fast Minccino actually is. Bel responds that it only represents how great Minccino is. Iris states that it isn’t the time for Bel to smile. Bel responds that she has never seen such a nimble Pokémon such as Minccino, which causes her to become psyched. Ash climbs atop the fallen tree, shouting that he has to recover his badge at any cost. Bel suggests that Ash can simply obtain a replacement badge if he were to tell the Gym Leader what happened. Ash responds that the badge is filled with his and his Pokémon’s passionate feelings. A distant “Pika Pika” is heard, alerting Ash that Pikachu has located Minccino.

Our heroes successfully reach Mincinno, who is busily polishing the stolen badge case with its tail. Bel queries her Pokédex for Minccino’s entry: “Minccino, the Chinchilla Pokémon. A Pokémon that loves clean and pretty things. When it finds something dirty, it uses its tail as a broom to sweep the dirt off”. Cilan suggests that the badge case must have bothered Minccino because it was dirty. Bel responds that Minccino is perfect for a trainer that is lazy like her. Ash begins to confront Minccino, however is interrupted by the anxious Bel, shouting that she as finally decided to capture Minccino. Cilan sighs that he cannot believe how wayward Bel is. Iris suggests that Bel is simply selfish. Bel shouts that Ash should leave it to her, as she will capture Minccino and recover his badge case. Minccino opens his mouth and devours the badge case, nestling it within his mouth. Bel launches a lone Pokéball, which blasts open in a shimmering light revealing her Pignite. Ash opens his Pokédex, recalling the entry for Pignite: “Pignite, the Fire Pig Pokémon. The evolved form of Tepig. It turns the things it eats into fuel, causing a flame to burn in its stomach. When the pouches in its body flare up, its mobility and speed increase.” Pignite forcefully dashes forward with Tackle; however Minccino gracefully dodges the attack with minor effort. Pignite begins stomping at the ground, generating flame energy around its body in preparation for Flame Charge. A few seconds later, Pignite blazes forward with Flame Charge, crashing into the ground nearby Minccino which creates a huge plume of debris. After the debris settles, Minccino is revealed to have successfully avoided the attack, climbing up a nearby tree. Cilan suggests that in contract to her appearance, Bel battles quite forcefully. Ash demands for Bel to hurry up and recover his badge. Mincinno removes the badge case from its mouth, placing it on a nearby tree branch. Pignite begins stomping its hooves again, preparing to launch another devastating Flame Charge.

In response, Minccino closes its ears and bellows a forceful wave of sound energy, which envelops Pignite rendering it unable to move. Iris identifies the attack as Hyper Voice. Mincinno dashes down the tree branch during Pignite’s temporary immobility, hopping atop his shoulders. Mincinno begins using the tip of its tail to tickle Pignite, forcing him to uncontrollably dance around in response to Mincinno’s attack. Bel recalls Pignite into its Pokéball, responding that Minccino is truly amazing despite being so small. Ash rushes up to Bel, stating that he will have to recover his badge back by himself after all. Pikachu takes to the battlefield, preparing to confront Minccino. As Pikachu crouches into a battle stance, a Pokéball explodes releasing Oshawott. Bel questions if Ash's Pokémon ever come out on their own without being called. Iris responds that it is only related to his Oshawott. Bel giggles, stating that it is quite funny. Ash suggests to Pikachu that he should allow Oshawott to battle this time. Oshawott dashes forward with Tackle, however Mincinno’s exceptional agility allows it to effortlessly evade the attack, forcing Oshawott to slam into the ground. Ash commands for Oshawott to respond with Razor Shell, however is interrupted by Bel who shouts for Oshawott to use Hydro Pump. Ash shouts to Bel that Oshawott is unable to use Hydro Pump and shouts for Oshawott to use Razor Shell. Oshawott successfully removes his scallsword, enveloping it in an aura-like energy. Oshawott swings his attack forward, however Mincinno is nowhere in sight. Taking advantage of the element of surprise, Minccino dashes down from a nearby tree and begins tickling Oshawott, forcing him to roll back and forth from the stimulation. After a few moments, Minccino follows up with Double Slap, knocking Oshawott unconscious. Bel complains that she was only one step away from capturing Minccino. Iris explains that while the opponent is caught completely off guard due to Tickle, it strikes with DoubleSlap. Cilan examines Minccino’s battle style, stating that the way it battles is fragrant with mellow ripeness. Oshawott returns to Ash and beings pushing Pikachu into the open field as Minccino’s next opponent. Minccino replaces the badge case within its mouth and disappears into the dense foliage. Bel shouts that Minccino was able to get away. Ash responds that Minccino simply escaped because she kept butting in unnecessarily during the battle. Bel suggests that she was only giving Ash advice on the battle and soon after, questions him if he will assist her in capturing Minccino. Ash reluctantly agrees, stating that he has no choice due to having to recapture his badge case. Bel giddily hops up and down, excited that she will be able to capture Minccino. Ash sighs, complaining that he had thought he would finally be able to challenge his 2nd gym. Cilan responds that they only have one more mountain to cross in order to reach Nacrene City, so there is no need to rush.

Meanwhile in Nacrene City, Team Rocket is perched atop a structure, examining the city architecture. Jessie states that the city is full of storehouses. James reveals a tablet, which boots revealing Team Rocket’s data interface. James selects an item on the screen, revealing a map of Nacrene City. James explains that railroads were developed in Nacrene many years ago. Meowth suggests that they should check the location of the museum first. James swipes his finger, moving the map to the location of the museum. Jessie suggests that they should work on securing their escape route prior to mission execution.

Our heroes stand in an open pathway, pondering where Mincinno could have escaped. Bel questions Cilan if he has any sparkling pots or tableware. Cilan removes a single spoon from his pouch, presenting it to Bel and informing her that he polishes his silverware very thoroughly. Bel snatches the utensil with vigor and begins rubbing it in the dirt, giving it a tarnished appearance. Ash questions Bel about her intentions with the spoon. Bel responds that they will use the spoon to lure out Minccino. Iris states that Bel will take advantage of the fact that Minccino likes to polish dirty things. In an open field, Bel props a cover up with a frail stick, attached to a rope leading back to her location in a group of bushes several feet away. The cover is propped up by the stick, covering the dirty spoon in which Bel hopes to attract Minccino. Moments later, Minccino appears and begins polishing the spoon with its tail. Bel responds by yanking the cord which forces the top to fall atop Minccino, trapping him. After a few moments, MInccino manages to use its strength to lift the lid, skittering across the dirt path and successfully thwarting Bel’s capture attempt. Ash responds that he will have to take his badge case back by battling MInccino after all. Bel lectures Ash that he will have a disadvantage in close range battle. Cilan suggests that Minccino will probably use Tickle to render his Pokémon unable to fight. Soon after, Ash, Iris, Cilan, and Bel begin traversing a shallow stream and soon meet a large tree, containing Minccino perched within whom is polishing its captured wares.

Ash dashes out with confidence, calling upon Snivy. Upon sight of Snivy, Minccino hops down from the tree branch, prepared to confront its new foe. Bel compliments Ash on having a wide variety of Pokémon. Cilan questions Bel if she has any Pokémon other than Pignite. Bel responds that she has only ever had Pignite. Cilan and Iris stare at Bel in a surprised state, pondering how Bel has been able to make it as far as she has with just Pignite. Bel states that she has won most of the time by continuing to use Flame Charge over and over. Cilan questions Bel how long she has been traveling. Bel responds that she has been studying at home for a while, and has only recently started traveling. Bel explains that her father simply wouldn’t allow her to begin a journey, which is why she only has two badges. Snivy launches a strong Attract; however Minccino avoids the attack by retreating into the forest foliage. Minccino retaliates with its own Attract, successfully rending Snivy unable to battle. Moments later, Pikachu dashes to Ash’s aid, suggesting he would like to battle Minccino next. Cilan states that with choosing Pikachu, Minccino’s Attract becomes useless against another male. Pikachu blazes into battle, encasing his tail in a layer of iron and soon smashing into the ground afterwards with Iron Tail. Minccino manages to barely dodge the devastating attack. Pikachu responds with Quick Attack, using the attack’s speed boost to counter Minccino’s agility. Pikachu flips forward once more, launching Iron Tail however; Minccino retaliates with DoubleSlap. The two Pokémon clash midair, negating each of their attacks. Minccino closes its ears, and lets forth a wave of sound energy, rendering Pikachu immobile. Minccino takes advantage of the temporary opening and dashes behind Pikachu. Minccino begins to use its tail to tickle Pikachu, rubbing it lightly across his entire body.

After a few moments, Minccino grows fatigued from the attack and begins panting from exhaustion. Bel shouts out commanding for Pikachu to use Zap Cannon. Ash sighs, responding that Pikachu cannot use Zap Cannon. Pikachu launches an astounding Thunderbolt, which strikes MInccino for a direct hit. Mincinno begins stumbling from the attack, dazed from the electric-type move. Bel begins fumbling in her bag, attempting to locate a Pokéball to capture Minccino. As Bel continues to search for the Monster Ball, Minccino manages to recover from the attack and escapes into the nearby forest. Moments after Minccino’s escape, Bel reveals the Pokéball which is covered in dust and debris. The sight of dust lures Minccino back towards Bel, whom dashes across the stream and climbs atop Bel to begin polishing the Pokéball. Seconds later, Minccino’s contact with the Pokéball forces it to open, capturing Minccino’s essence. A few seconds later, the red lamp delaminates on the Pokéball, signifying Minccino’s successful capture. Cilan suggests that Minccino must have been extremely bothered by the dirt on the Pokéball. Iris questions if Minccino and Bel will be fine as partners. Cilan responds that a marriage between a quirky trainer like Bel and a steadfast Pokémon like Minccino is wonderful. With Minccino’s capture, Ash successfully reclaims his badge case.

Later in the afternoon, our heroes visit a local Pokémon Center in which they restore their Pokémon to their previous healthy states. Joy and Audino present Ash and Bel with two trays, containing their respective Pokémon. Joy explains that she has additionally completed examining his Pokémon Egg (Note: The Egg was previously obtained in Best Wishes #12) and it is very healthy. Bel questions Ash what Pokémon is inside the egg. Ash responds that he is unsure as to which Pokémon is inside the egg. Afterwards, Bel challenges Ash to a battle, who confidently accepts. An open area is located outside of the Pokémon Center, which contains chalk lines to represent a battlefield. Ash explains that each trainer will be allowed one Pokémon, and if either one becomes unable to battle, it will be over. Bel launches a Pokéball, calling upon Pignite. Ash begins to ponder what Pokémon he will use in response to Pignite; however Bel interrupts, demanding for him to use Pikachu. Ash obliges, with Pikachu dashing over to take the battlefield. Pignite blazes forward with Take Down, successfully striking Pikachu. Taking advantage of Pikachu’s damaged state; Pignite takes skyward and envelops itself in a sphere of fire energy, striking down with Heat Crash. Pikachu struggles for a few moments however; manages to recover from the attack. Pignite responds with Flame Charge, stomping its hoofs up and down against the battlefield to generate fire energy around itself. Pikachu retaliates with Volt Tackle, with both Pokémon clashing violently. As the debris settles, Pignite is announced as unable to battle, rendering Ash as the victor. Bel recalls Pignite into his Pokéball, thanking it for the hard work. Bel dashes over to Ash, stating that while she may have lost, she has only began traveling and by the time they meet again, she will have raised Pignite and Minccino to a higher level. Bel wishes good luck to Ash, and begins her departure, escaping down the forest path.

Ash and his friends have been thrown back and forth by Bel, Juniper’s messenger. Ash sets off with renewed determination for his next battle at Nacrene Gym.

Unsere Freunde trifft fast der Schock! Nachdem Ash sein Ordenskästchen wiedererhalten hat, tragen er und Bell einen Eins-gegen-Eins-Kampf aus, den Ash gewinnt.

Mens de fortsetter på reisen mot Nacrene City-gym og Ash sin neste Gym-kamp, møter våre helter Bianca, som er blitt sendt av professor Juniper for å gå Ash en Badge case hun har glemt å gi ham. Men når Bianca gir ham esken, blir den raskt snappet opp av en Minccino. Minccino er en Pokémon som elsker å rengjøre ting, og Ash sin Badge case var blitt skitten inne i Biancas veske. Raskt og greit insisterer Bianca på at hun vil hente Ash sin eske til ham, og henter ut sin Pignite for å hjelpe. Men Minccino er en tøff Pokémon, og viser seg å være vanskelig å slå, noe som får Bianca til å ønske seg å ha Minccino selv! Når han skjønner at han må ta saken i egne hender hvis han vil ha tilbake sin Badge case, kaller Ash ut sin Snivy for å slåss mot Minccino, men når det ikke fungerer spør Pikachu om å få være med på kampen. Når Bianca spør Ash om hun får kjempe mot Minccino, tar hun ut sin Poké Ball, og ser at den er skitten etter å ha ligget i veska – akkurat som Ash sin Badge case var. Men når Minccino ser det og får lyst til å vaske den, løper den til og ender ved et uhell oppi Biancas Poké Ball – til våre helters overraskelse! Etter at Ash får sin Bagde case tilbake, har han og Bianca en tve-kamp, og Ash er vinneren. Og så, etter å ha lovet å gjøre det bedre neste gang de møtes, sier Bianca ha det til våre helter, og ønsker Ash lykke til med den kommende kampen i Nacrene City-gym.

Swedish Official Summary

På sin väg mot Nacrene City-gym och Ashs nästa Gym-strid, möter våra hjältar Bianca, som har sänts ut av professor Juniper för att ge Ash den Badge-ask hon glömt att ge honom. Men när Bianca räcker över asken knycks det snabbt av en Minccino. Minccino är en Pokémon som älskar att städa saker och Badge-asken hade blivit smutsigt inuti Biancas väska. Ivrig och snabb insisterar Bianca att får återbörda Ashs ask till honom och kallar sin Pignite för att hjälpa till. Men Minccino är en tuff Pokémon och visar sig vara mycket svår att besegra, och detta gör att Bianca vill ha den som sin egen! Ash inser att han får ta saken i egna händer om han vill återfå sin Badge och sin ask och då kallar han på Snivy för att strida mot Minccino. När detta visar sig icke-framgångsrikt, ber Pikachu att få blanda sig i striden. Men när Bianca ber Ash att få lov att strida mot Minccino, tar hon fram sin Poké Ball och den visar sig vara lika smutsig som Ashs Badge-ask var. När Minccino ser detta blir den ivrig att städa den, rusar fram och hamnar oavsiktligt inuti Biancas Poké Ball – till våra hjältars stora förvåning! När Ash har fått sitt fodral tillbaka, utkämpar han och Bianca en en mot en strid och Ash vinner. Och lovandes att förbättras nästa gång de möts, säger Bianca farväl till våra hjältar och önskar Ash lycka till i sin kommande Gym-strid i Nacrene City.

Danish Official Summary

Vores helte fortsætter rejsen mod Nacrene City-salen og Ash’ næste Sal-kamp og møder nu Bianca, som er sendt ud af professor Juniper for at overlevere Ash den Badge-æske, hun havde glemt at give ham. Men idet Bianca rækker ham æsken, bliver den lynhurtigt snuppet af en Minccino. Minccino er en Pokémon, der elsker rene ting, og Badge-æsken er blevet beskidt af at ligge i Biancas taske. Hurtigt og iltert insisterer Bianca på at få lov til at hente Ash’ æske tilbage for ham, og kalder sin Pignite til hjælp. Men Minccino er en sej Pokémon og viser sig at være meget svær at besejre, hvilket får Bianca til at ønske at den var hendes! Ash indser, at hvis han vil have sit Badge og æsken tilbage, må han tage sagen i egen hånd. Han kalder sin Snivy frem så den kan kæmpe mod Minccino, men da det ikke giver resultat, beder Pikachu om at få lov at prøve. Men da Bianca trygler Ash om lov til at lade hende kæmpe, tager hun sin Poké Ball frem og må konstatere, at den er blevet beskidt af at ligge i hendes taske, fuldstændig som Ash’ Badge-æske var. Men da Minccino ser dette og får trang til at gøre den ren, løber den op og ender ved et tilfælde inden i Biancas Poké Ball – til vores heltes store chok! Da Ash har fået sin Badge-æske tilbage tager han og Bianca en én mod én-kamp, som Ash vinder. Og med et løfte om at forbedre sig inden næste gang de mødes siger Bianca farvel til vores helte og ønsker Ash held og lykke i Sal-kampen i Nacrene City.

The Chillarmy in this episode seemed realy evil. It had a creepy smile, especially when it was tickling its opponents. I really didn't like it. Tsutaja looked really cool when it was sent out but it was really random that Chillarmy would use Attract on it. I guess it was just that smart.
THe battle at the end between Chaobu and Pikachu was really interesting. It showed just how strong Pikachu actually is, since it was able to take three attacks and not faint. It doesn't seem like Ash's other Pokémon are strong enough.
I really didn't expect Chillarmy to be such a vicious Pokémon since it looks really cute. But the only time it seemed cute to me was when it was polishing items with its tail. The look on its face was really innocent. Otherwise its smile was just scary coming from such a cute Pokémon.

Minccino is misspelled multiple times in this episode which is kind of hard to not notice. Generally in the past, errors like this are fixed before they are released on DVD so will see what happens there.

The Grass Monkey Pokémon, Pansage, is a Pokémon who has a big leaf on its head as a special trait. This leaf contains components that improve blood circulation. When you eat it, your body will become warm and your physical condition will improve. That’s why Pansage shares the leaf with every unwell Pokémon it sees. Presently, it’s being researched whether this effect can be used for humans as well. Pansage have a mild personality and don’t like fighting. Apparently, they often reside in deep forests or on top of trees.

Summary
On his quest to become a Pokémon Master, Ash and his friends continue their journey to Nacrene City, the location of the Nacrene Gym, in order to get the second badge. A young woman shouts out, “Hey Hey!” dashing down the dirt path in an attempt to catch up to our heroes. Ash, Iris, and Cilan turn to see the woman trip on a small rock in her pathway, forcing her to lose her balance, knocking Ash and Cilan into a nearby stream. After taking a splash into the stream, Ash and Cilan remove their clothing and prepare a fire and begin drying their drenched clothes. The woman begins apologizing, shouting that she is sorry repeatedly. Iris questions the woman who she is. She looks towards Ash, responding that she has a delivery for him. The woman rushes over to Ash and presents her Xtransciever to Ash, initiating a call into Professor Juniper. The connection is successfully established with Juniper greeting Ash and questioning him on his progress with gym battles. Ash responds that he currently has one badge. Juniper apologizes to Ash for not giving him a Badge Case during his prior visit and has given one to her assistant, Bel. The young woman introduces herself as Bel, the assistant that Juniper had been referring to. Bel begins rummaging through her shoulder bag, attempting to secure the badge case to present to Ash.

After a few moments, Bel continues to rummage around through her purse, still unable to locate the case. Ash and Cilan begin drying their clothes and finishing dressing as Bel finally manages to recover the badge case from her unorganized bag. The badge case is two-toned (black and blue) and covered in dust. Ash receives the case from Bel, opening it to reveal eight slots used to hold a trainer’s victory badges of Unova. Ash places his Tri Badge in its slot, stating that he wants to collect all eight badges soon. Cilan reminds Ash that they are very close to his next gym battle in Nacrene City. Bel questions Ash to allow her to examine the badge. Ash obliges, handing the case over to Bel. As Bel begins to grasp the case, a wild Minccino snatches the case and dashes into the dense forest foliage. Ash dashes away in pursuit of Minccino, following shortly behind by Bel, Iris, and Cilan. Ash soon becomes exhausted from the pursuit, stopping at a fallen tree in his path and begins gasping for air stating that he can’t believe how fast Minccino actually is. Bel responds that it only represents how great Minccino is. Iris states that it isn’t the time for Bel to smile. Bel responds that she has never seen such a nimble Pokémon such as Minccino, which causes her to become psyched. Ash climbs atop the fallen tree, shouting that he has to recover his badge at any cost. Bel suggests that Ash can simply obtain a replacement badge if he were to tell the Gym Leader what happened. Ash responds that the badge is filled with his and his Pokémon’s passionate feelings. A distant “Pika Pika” is heard, alerting Ash that Pikachu has located Minccino.

Our heroes successfully reach Mincinno, who is busily polishing the stolen badge case with its tail. Bel queries her Pokédex for Minccino’s entry: “Minccino, the Chinchilla Pokémon. A Pokémon that loves clean and pretty things. When it finds something dirty, it uses its tail as a broom to sweep the dirt off”. Cilan suggests that the badge case must have bothered Minccino because it was dirty. Bel responds that Minccino is perfect for a trainer that is lazy like her. Ash begins to confront Minccino, however is interrupted by the anxious Bel, shouting that she as finally decided to capture Minccino. Cilan sighs that he cannot believe how wayward Bel is. Iris suggests that Bel is simply selfish. Bel shouts that Ash should leave it to her, as she will capture Minccino and recover his badge case. Minccino opens his mouth and devours the badge case, nestling it within his mouth. Bel launches a lone Pokéball, which blasts open in a shimmering light revealing her Pignite. Ash opens his Pokédex, recalling the entry for Pignite: “Pignite, the Fire Pig Pokémon. The evolved form of Tepig. It turns the things it eats into fuel, causing a flame to burn in its stomach. When the pouches in its body flare up, its mobility and speed increase.” Pignite forcefully dashes forward with Tackle; however Minccino gracefully dodges the attack with minor effort. Pignite begins stomping at the ground, generating flame energy around its body in preparation for Flame Charge. A few seconds later, Pignite blazes forward with Flame Charge, crashing into the ground nearby Minccino which creates a huge plume of debris. After the debris settles, Minccino is revealed to have successfully avoided the attack, climbing up a nearby tree. Cilan suggests that in contract to her appearance, Bel battles quite forcefully. Ash demands for Bel to hurry up and recover his badge. Mincinno removes the badge case from its mouth, placing it on a nearby tree branch. Pignite begins stomping its hooves again, preparing to launch another devastating Flame Charge.

In response, Minccino closes its ears and bellows a forceful wave of sound energy, which envelops Pignite rendering it unable to move. Iris identifies the attack as Hyper Voice. Mincinno dashes down the tree branch during Pignite’s temporary immobility, hopping atop his shoulders. Mincinno begins using the tip of its tail to tickle Pignite, forcing him to uncontrollably dance around in response to Mincinno’s attack. Bel recalls Pignite into its Pokéball, responding that Minccino is truly amazing despite being so small. Ash rushes up to Bel, stating that he will have to recover his badge back by himself after all. Pikachu takes to the battlefield, preparing to confront Minccino. As Pikachu crouches into a battle stance, a Pokéball explodes releasing Oshawott. Bel questions if Ash's Pokémon ever come out on their own without being called. Iris responds that it is only related to his Oshawott. Bel giggles, stating that it is quite funny. Ash suggests to Pikachu that he should allow Oshawott to battle this time. Oshawott dashes forward with Tackle, however Mincinno’s exceptional agility allows it to effortlessly evade the attack, forcing Oshawott to slam into the ground. Ash commands for Oshawott to respond with Razor Shell, however is interrupted by Bel who shouts for Oshawott to use Hydro Pump. Ash shouts to Bel that Oshawott is unable to use Hydro Pump and shouts for Oshawott to use Razor Shell. Oshawott successfully removes his scallsword, enveloping it in an aura-like energy. Oshawott swings his attack forward, however Mincinno is nowhere in sight. Taking advantage of the element of surprise, Minccino dashes down from a nearby tree and begins tickling Oshawott, forcing him to roll back and forth from the stimulation. After a few moments, Minccino follows up with Double Slap, knocking Oshawott unconscious. Bel complains that she was only one step away from capturing Minccino. Iris explains that while the opponent is caught completely off guard due to Tickle, it strikes with DoubleSlap. Cilan examines Minccino’s battle style, stating that the way it battles is fragrant with mellow ripeness. Oshawott returns to Ash and beings pushing Pikachu into the open field as Minccino’s next opponent. Minccino replaces the badge case within its mouth and disappears into the dense foliage. Bel shouts that Minccino was able to get away. Ash responds that Minccino simply escaped because she kept butting in unnecessarily during the battle. Bel suggests that she was only giving Ash advice on the battle and soon after, questions him if he will assist her in capturing Minccino. Ash reluctantly agrees, stating that he has no choice due to having to recapture his badge case. Bel giddily hops up and down, excited that she will be able to capture Minccino. Ash sighs, complaining that he had thought he would finally be able to challenge his 2nd gym. Cilan responds that they only have one more mountain to cross in order to reach Nacrene City, so there is no need to rush.

Meanwhile in Nacrene City, Team Rocket is perched atop a structure, examining the city architecture. Jessie states that the city is full of storehouses. James reveals a tablet, which boots revealing Team Rocket’s data interface. James selects an item on the screen, revealing a map of Nacrene City. James explains that railroads were developed in Nacrene many years ago. Meowth suggests that they should check the location of the museum first. James swipes his finger, moving the map to the location of the museum. Jessie suggests that they should work on securing their escape route prior to mission execution.

Our heroes stand in an open pathway, pondering where Mincinno could have escaped. Bel questions Cilan if he has any sparkling pots or tableware. Cilan removes a single spoon from his pouch, presenting it to Bel and informing her that he polishes his silverware very thoroughly. Bel snatches the utensil with vigor and begins rubbing it in the dirt, giving it a tarnished appearance. Ash questions Bel about her intentions with the spoon. Bel responds that they will use the spoon to lure out Minccino. Iris states that Bel will take advantage of the fact that Minccino likes to polish dirty things. In an open field, Bel props a cover up with a frail stick, attached to a rope leading back to her location in a group of bushes several feet away. The cover is propped up by the stick, covering the dirty spoon in which Bel hopes to attract Minccino. Moments later, Minccino appears and begins polishing the spoon with its tail. Bel responds by yanking the cord which forces the top to fall atop Minccino, trapping him. After a few moments, MInccino manages to use its strength to lift the lid, skittering across the dirt path and successfully thwarting Bel’s capture attempt. Ash responds that he will have to take his badge case back by battling MInccino after all. Bel lectures Ash that he will have a disadvantage in close range battle. Cilan suggests that Minccino will probably use Tickle to render his Pokémon unable to fight. Soon after, Ash, Iris, Cilan, and Bel begin traversing a shallow stream and soon meet a large tree, containing Minccino perched within whom is polishing its captured wares.

Ash dashes out with confidence, calling upon Snivy. Upon sight of Snivy, Minccino hops down from the tree branch, prepared to confront its new foe. Bel compliments Ash on having a wide variety of Pokémon. Cilan questions Bel if she has any Pokémon other than Pignite. Bel responds that she has only ever had Pignite. Cilan and Iris stare at Bel in a surprised state, pondering how Bel has been able to make it as far as she has with just Pignite. Bel states that she has won most of the time by continuing to use Flame Charge over and over. Cilan questions Bel how long she has been traveling. Bel responds that she has been studying at home for a while, and has only recently started traveling. Bel explains that her father simply wouldn’t allow her to begin a journey, which is why she only has two badges. Snivy launches a strong Attract; however Minccino avoids the attack by retreating into the forest foliage. Minccino retaliates with its own Attract, successfully rending Snivy unable to battle. Moments later, Pikachu dashes to Ash’s aid, suggesting he would like to battle Minccino next. Cilan states that with choosing Pikachu, Minccino’s Attract becomes useless against another male. Pikachu blazes into battle, encasing his tail in a layer of iron and soon smashing into the ground afterwards with Iron Tail. Minccino manages to barely dodge the devastating attack. Pikachu responds with Quick Attack, using the attack’s speed boost to counter Minccino’s agility. Pikachu flips forward once more, launching Iron Tail however; Minccino retaliates with DoubleSlap. The two Pokémon clash midair, negating each of their attacks. Minccino closes its ears, and lets forth a wave of sound energy, rendering Pikachu immobile. Minccino takes advantage of the temporary opening and dashes behind Pikachu. Minccino begins to use its tail to tickle Pikachu, rubbing it lightly across his entire body.

After a few moments, Minccino grows fatigued from the attack and begins panting from exhaustion. Bel shouts out commanding for Pikachu to use Zap Cannon. Ash sighs, responding that Pikachu cannot use Zap Cannon. Pikachu launches an astounding Thunderbolt, which strikes MInccino for a direct hit. Mincinno begins stumbling from the attack, dazed from the electric-type move. Bel begins fumbling in her bag, attempting to locate a Pokéball to capture Minccino. As Bel continues to search for the Monster Ball, Minccino manages to recover from the attack and escapes into the nearby forest. Moments after Minccino’s escape, Bel reveals the Pokéball which is covered in dust and debris. The sight of dust lures Minccino back towards Bel, whom dashes across the stream and climbs atop Bel to begin polishing the Pokéball. Seconds later, Minccino’s contact with the Pokéball forces it to open, capturing Minccino’s essence. A few seconds later, the red lamp delaminates on the Pokéball, signifying Minccino’s successful capture. Cilan suggests that Minccino must have been extremely bothered by the dirt on the Pokéball. Iris questions if Minccino and Bel will be fine as partners. Cilan responds that a marriage between a quirky trainer like Bel and a steadfast Pokémon like Minccino is wonderful. With Minccino’s capture, Ash successfully reclaims his badge case.

Later in the afternoon, our heroes visit a local Pokémon Center in which they restore their Pokémon to their previous healthy states. Joy and Audino present Ash and Bel with two trays, containing their respective Pokémon. Joy explains that she has additionally completed examining his Pokémon Egg (Note: The Egg was previously obtained in Best Wishes #12) and it is very healthy. Bel questions Ash what Pokémon is inside the egg. Ash responds that he is unsure as to which Pokémon is inside the egg. Afterwards, Bel challenges Ash to a battle, who confidently accepts. An open area is located outside of the Pokémon Center, which contains chalk lines to represent a battlefield. Ash explains that each trainer will be allowed one Pokémon, and if either one becomes unable to battle, it will be over. Bel launches a Pokéball, calling upon Pignite. Ash begins to ponder what Pokémon he will use in response to Pignite; however Bel interrupts, demanding for him to use Pikachu. Ash obliges, with Pikachu dashing over to take the battlefield. Pignite blazes forward with Take Down, successfully striking Pikachu. Taking advantage of Pikachu’s damaged state; Pignite takes skyward and envelops itself in a sphere of fire energy, striking down with Heat Crash. Pikachu struggles for a few moments however; manages to recover from the attack. Pignite responds with Flame Charge, stomping its hoofs up and down against the battlefield to generate fire energy around itself. Pikachu retaliates with Volt Tackle, with both Pokémon clashing violently. As the debris settles, Pignite is announced as unable to battle, rendering Ash as the victor. Bel recalls Pignite into his Pokéball, thanking it for the hard work. Bel dashes over to Ash, stating that while she may have lost, she has only began traveling and by the time they meet again, she will have raised Pignite and Minccino to a higher level. Bel wishes good luck to Ash, and begins her departure, escaping down the forest path.

Ash and his friends have been thrown back and forth by Bel, Juniper’s messenger. Ash sets off with renewed determination for his next battle at Nacrene Gym.
