Summary


English Official Summary

As our heroes continue their journey, Team Rocket never let up with their constant interception, but today something seems strange. The coin on Meowth's forehead is blinking red, indicating overheating. If something isn't done soon, Meowth may die, but James and Jessie don't know what to do. Just then, a young girl approaches. Unable to bear the sight of Meowth's pain, she pulls a bundle of healing herbs from her backpack, crunches them into powder and, mixing this with water, feeds it to Meowth. As Meowth drinks, the redness gradually fades from its face.

Summary:
Satoshi and his party continue their journey. And as usual, the Rocket Gang is around as well.

But today, there's something off about them. More specifically, the coin on Nyarth's forehead is flashing red; his fever is so high he might die if left alone. However, Musashi and Kojiro are so flustered they don't know what to do. Just then, a young girl appeared before them. She was unable to just ignore Nyarth's suffering and produced a bundle of medical herbs from her backpack, quickly ground them to fine powder, then dissolved the powder in water and made Nyarth drink it. And in an instant, the red shade disappeared from Nyarth's face...
