Ash and co. are still in the forest, but they are lost. Max is blaming it all on May because she wanted to take another direction. May insists that the path they are now on is prettier and had more beauty. Then she blames Max for not paying attention to his Pokenav. Max shouts out to her that his Pokenav is out of range, therefore it won't work. Brock pushes both of them away and tells them not to fight. He says that Ash and him used to always get lost. Ash agrees with Brock. May and Max are still angry with each other. Suddenly, Ash sees something move in a tree. A Treecko appears on the branch. Ash looks up Treecko in his Pokédex. A bunch of more Treecko appear from the tree. Ash is happy that he found a Treecko because he has always wanted one. Ash throws a Pokéball at one of the Treecko, but Treecko knocks it right back at Ash. May tells Ash that he has to weaken the Pokémon first. She is surprised that Ash didn't know that himself. Ash sighs. The Treecko starts to get away, so Ash runs after it. Everyone else follows him.

Ash sees a strange-looking tree ahead. He trips over a large branch on the ground and slides down a mini hill. Ash manages to get himself up and stares straight into the tall tree. This tree is much taller than any of the other trees in the forest. Ash discovers that the tree is dying. Suddenly, a twig is thrown right at him. Treecko, who is sitting on the tree, threw the twig at Ash. Ash shouts out to Treecko to come down and battle. Treecko jumps from branch to branch and lands safely on the ground. Treecko quickly strikes Pikachu with its tail. Pikachu is slammed into the tree. Pikachu gets up and tries to tackle Treecko, but Treecko is too fast for Pikachu. It hits Pikachu with its tail again. Team Rocket is watching the battle. They are impressed with Treecko's power. Meowth tells his friends that the boss will be happy with Treecko, and that they will be promoted to directors. Jessie and James also want to catch Treecko.

A group of other Treecko walk behind the Treecko that Pikachu fought. An older Treecko walks up to the Treecko that Pikachu fought and starts to talk to it. For some reason, the Treecko gets mad and knocks down the older Treecko. The older Treecko gets up and begins to talk to the younger Treecko again. Meowth translates what the Treecko are saying. The older Treecko is telling the other Treecko that their tree is dying and that they have to get rid of it. The younger Treecko is angry and tells the older one that he is staying to protect the tree. James and Meowth are touched by the younger Treecko's story. Jessie has different thoughts. She thinks that change is the best thing to do. Without change you won't make any progress ini life. Then Jessie says that she has a brilliant plan to capture all the Treecko. James and Meowth cheer for her.

The bunch of Treecko walk away with the younger Treecko remaining. Treecko looks at the old tree and jumps on it. It runs back into the forest. Pikachu gets an idea. It jumps on the tree and calls out for Ash. Ash understands Pikachu's plan. They decide to wait for Treecko beside the tree.

Meanwhile, Brock, May, and Max are eating lunch. Max is worried about Ash, but Brock tells him that Ash will be fine. Ash and Pikachu are sitting on a tree branch waiting for Treecko. Ash hopes that Brock, May, and Max aren't too worried about him. A flock of Murkrow fly in the sky. Ash suddenly gets an idea. He sends out Taillow and tells it to find Brock, May, and Max. He wants Taillow to lead them here while he waits for Treecko. Seconds later, Treecko walks up to the tree with a leaf full of water. It pours the water beside the tree and covers the spot with dry leaves. Then Treecko walks back into the forest to get some more water. Ash feels kind of sad for Treecko since it's doing everything it can to save the tree. Treecko covers the tree with more leaves. Ash decides to get down and help Treecko. Treecko gets angry at Ash, but Ash tells Treecko that he wants to help it save the tree. Treecko accepts Ash's kindness and calms down.

Suddenly, a vehicle comes up and steals all the Treecko. Ash spots the vehicle and tells it to stop. The vehicle tries to run Ash down. Then Team Rocket comes out of the vehicle and says their motto. The Treecko are put inside a cage. Team Rocket runs into their balloon, and they take off with the Treecko. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt on the balloon, but the attack doesn't work. James tells Ash that their balloon blocks off electricity. Ash is about to send Taillow out, but he remembers sending Taillow away to find his friends. Team Rocket takes out a net and uses it to capture Pikachu. Treecko gets angry and swings onto the trees. It tries to pop the balloon with its twig. Team Rocket laughs, and James sends out Cacnea. Cacnea uses Pin Missile at Treecko but misses. Since Ash never saw Cacnea before, he looks it up in his Pokédex. James tells Cacnea to defeat Treecko. Treecko climbs up a tree, jumps off it, and lands in Team Rocket's balloon. Jessie falls onto the side of the balloon. Unfortunately for her, she is bumped into a button that releases the top part of the cage that holds the Treecko. The Treecko run out of the cage. Team Rocket struggles with catching the younger Treecko. Treecko jumps onto the balloon. It sticks out its tongue at Cacnea. Cacnea gets mad and fires a Pin Missile at Treecko. Treecko dodges the attack, and the attack bursts open the balloon. Part of the net which is holding Pikachu breaks. Team Rocket blasts off into the sky.

Pikachu walks out of the net and is reunited with Ash again. Ash thanks the Treecko for saving Pikachu. Everyone heads back to the old tree. The older Treecko agrees to help the younger Treecko save the tree. Suddenly, the tree begins to split in two. All the Treecko do their best to put the two pieces of the tree back together. Ash goes into his backpack to fetch a rope. Then suddenly, the sun comes up. It shines on the tree. Ash is given a history on how the tree was born. Soon later, the tree finally splits into two pieces and falls to the ground. Ash bends down and tells Treecko that the tree appreciated everything it did to help it. Treecko is angry and hits Ash with its tail. Ash thinks that Treecko is ready to battle him. Meanwhile, Taillow has found Brock, May, and Max, and they are running towards Ash.

Pikachu starts the battle off with a Thunderbolt. Treecko dodges the attacks until it gets hit. Unfortunately, grass Pokémon can endure electric attacks easily. May notices the great speed that Treecko has. Ash orders Pikachu to use Quick Attack. Treecko jumps into the air, barely dodging the attack. While Treecko is in the air, Pikachu uses Thunderbolt. The attack does more damage than usual leaving Treecko helpless. Max is shocked that an electric attack was effective againt a grass type. Brock explains to them that in midair, electric attacks are more powerful. Ash throws a Pokéball at Treecko and captures it. Then Ash sends out Treecko. It agrees to travel along with Ash. The older Treecko gives Ash's Treecko a tree seed. Ash's Treecko takes the seed and buries it in the ground and covers it with leaves. Ash and co. wave goodbye to the Treecko, and they continue their journey to Rustboro City.

Starting on Tuesday, June 13th, 2023, selected episodes from the Pocket Monsters Advanced Generation anime were available on the official Japanese Pokémon YouTube channel but were region locked. Check out the adventures with Haruka and Masato, new friends from the Houen region!


On December 10th, 2020, the official Japanese Twitter account announced that this episode was available to watch on the official Japanese YouTube channel. The video was region locked to Japan only. A special artwork showcasing the episode was created to promote its release on YouTube.

It was part of the Anipoke Selection (アニポケセレクション), a limited-time promotion to release select episodes from the older anime series on the official Japanese YouTube channel! A playlist was available to watch these episodes.

Script Error

Brock says that he and Ash get lost all the time but Takeshi in the Japanese original says its not that big of a deal. Takeshi doesn't specifically point out to them that they get lost often. Satoshi and Ash bring that point up in the next line of dialog. Ash also refers to Misty but Satoshi doesn't mention Kasumi.

Character English Translation Japanese
Brock Ash and l get lost all the time but we don't fight about it. Just losing our way isn't that big a deal, okay? なに… 道に迷ったことぐらい大したことないって。
Ash When we were traveling around with Misty we probably set the record for getting lost but we'd always wind up getting where we wanted to be in the end. Right. We got lost so often that we could boast about it, but we always got to our destination in the end. そうだよ。オレたちは今まで自慢できるほどいっぱい迷ったけど最後には ちゃんと目的地に着いたもんな。


Script Error

The narrator states in the English dub that the only battle they'll be seeing is between May and Max but the Japanese narrator states that the group is lost in the forest.

English Narrator: But for now, it looks like the only battle they'll be seeing is the one between May and Max.
Japanese Narrator: But right now, it looks as though they are lost in a deep forest.
(ナレーター): だが今は 深い森の中で迷ってしまったようだ


Script Error

The English dub adds an extra line of dialog for Max. Masato just makes moaning noises in the Japanese original.

Max: This is completely her fault.


Script Error

May questions Ash's ability to become a Pokémon Master after attempting to catch a Pokémon without weakening it while Haruka just thinks he's uncool for doing just what she did the previous day.

May: Pokémon Master, huh?
Haruka: Kinda uncool, if you ask me.
(ハルカ): なんか カッコ悪いかも。


Script Error

May says her brother is slower than a Slugma in the English dub and then Max says she looks like a Slugma. Neither Masato or Haruka reference Magmag (マグマッグ) in the Japanese original.

Character English Translation Japanese
May I've seen Slugma slither faster than you. What are you doing? You're too slow, Masato! 何やってんの? 遅いわよ マサト!
Max You look like a Slugma! That's mean, Sis! ずるいぞ お姉ちゃん!


Script Error

James suggests that they would no longer have a need for Pikachu if they captured Treecko. Kojiro just notes that Pikachu is facing a formidable opponent.

James: There's really no need for Pikachu if we had that.
Kojiro: The brat boy's Pikachu is getting pressured!
(コジロウ): ジャリボーイのピカチュウがおされまくってるぜ。


Script Error

Nyarth states that their future looks rose-colored as they had high expectations and a good outlook. The background is all roses as a result.

Meowth does not mention roses at all so the whole point of the background having roses is lost in the English dub and seems a bit out of place.

Meowth: Go, Team Rocket, at the speed of light!
Nyarth: Our future is rose-colored!
(ニャース): ニャーたちの未来は バラ色ニャ。


Script Error

The English dub adds an extra line of dialog for James. Kojiro just makes a questioning noise in the Japanese original.

James: Homes and boyfriends?


Scene Cut

The English dub randomly decides to cut out Pikachu's noises which is what catches Satoshi's attention and causes him to turn around. It seems very odd for Ash to turn around and seem confused when there is no noise or reason for doing so.

Scene Cut

The close up of Takeshi's Pokémon dessert is cut from the English dub.

Script Error

Ash accuses Team Rocket of stealing Cacnea. Satoshi doesn't accuse them and just wonders when they got it.

Ash: When did they get that? I'm sure they probably stole it.
Satoshi: That blasted Rocket Gang! When did they get that kind of Pokémon...?
(サトシ): ロケット団め。いつの間に あんなポケモンを。


Scene Cut

The English dub adds a full screen animation that covers the actual impact on Jessie's face.

Scene Cut

Just as Treecko jumps on Meowth's face in the English dub, it is replaced with another full screen animation.

Script Error

Haruka wonders why Kimori is still standing after being hit by Thunderbolt as she doesn't realize that Electric types aren't that strong against Grass types. May just thinks Treecko is strong.

May: Treecko's strong.
Haruka: It hit, so why...?
(ハルカ): 当たってるのに。


Script Error

The English dub changes two of Masato's lines to May's lines.

Character English Translation Japanese
May (English Dub) /
Masato (Japanese Original)
That's not good. Look how fast Treecko is! It's fast on top of being a poor type match-up! 相性が悪いうえに動きが速いんじゃ
May (English Dub) /
Masato (Japanese Original)
Pikachu doesn't have a chance against a Pokémon that fast especially starting with a disadvantage. Pikachu is at an extreme disadvantage here! ピカチュウ 圧倒的に不利だよ!


Script Error

Pikachu uses Thunder in the Japanese original while Pikachu uses Thunderbolt in the English dub.

Ash: Pikachu, Thunderbolt, go!
Satoshi: Pikachu! Use Thunder!
(サトシ): ピカチュウ!かみなりだ!

Team Rocket's dialog was actually quite accurate in this episode but it was actually the protagonist's dialog that was a bit messed up in this episode. The one scene where the dub changes the dialog from Masato to May speaking was a bit odd and was out of character for May to be the one explaining things.

I was sort of disappointed to see Kimori getting KOed by one attack it's NOT weak against... felt pretty anti-climatic, if you ask me, especially compared to the original series, the episode when Satoshi gets Fushigidane.

I did enjoy the fact we didn't get to see Masato for a great part of the episode :p

As he continues his journey, Satoshi encounters the "Wood Gecko Pokémon" Kimori in a forest. He attempts to get it, but doesn't watch where he's going and ends up falling down a slope.

When he lands, he sees a giant tree before him that has a mysterious, imposing air to it despite being withered. Satoshi approaches it as if summoned by a mysterious force, but is suddenly attacked by a single Kimori!

Satoshi starts fighting back with Pikachu, but a group of other Kimori intervene and put a stop to the fighting. It turns out the group has come to take the lone Kimori who still lives in the huge tree back with them.

The Kimori refuses leave the forest, wanting to stay in the tree and care for it. The other Kimori are perplexed, but Satoshi finds this really impressive.

Just then, the Rocket Gang shows up, tearing up the trees in the forest in order to get the Kimori!
