Summary:
As they wander through Tokiwa Forest, Satoshi and Kasumi encounter a mysterious samurai boy. He duels up-and-coming Pokémon Trainers who pass through the forest in order to improve his own skills as a Trainer. And now Satoshi has become one of his targets. A Pokémon battle between Satoshi and the samurai starts, and the match is really close when a group a Spear suddenly attack. The match is put on hold, and the samurai runs off to escape the Spear.

Satoshi tries to store the Transel he sent out in its monster ball as well, but right before he is able to do this, the Spear fly off with Transel. The group makes it through with the help of Pikachu's electricity, but Transel is gone. As they look for Transel, they eventually find it in a nest of Spear's pupal stage, Cocoon.

As they attempt to rescue Transel, the Rocket Gang butts in. In the commotion, the pupa Cocoon wake up and turn into Spear, who attack the group together. Satoshi manages to escape by using the Rocket Gang, who are unaware of what's going on, as a decoy, and goes to rescue Transel. But as Transel uses its own body to shield Satoshi and the others from an attacking Spear, it is pierced by the Spear's stinger. But although its body is torn apart, the very next moment it evolves into a Butterfree. Satoshi orders Butterfree to use Sleep Powder, and it puts both the group of Spear and the Rocket Gang to sleep. The samurai is impressed with the way Satoshi and Butterfree fought together.
