On their way to Saffron City, Ash and friends arrive at one restaurant, and Team Rocket arrives at another one. They are run by two twin sisters named Rhonda and Rhoda. The chefs at the restaurants are their pokémon. Rhonda’s Mr. Mime makes good looking food but it tastes horrible, while Rhoda’s Sneasel makes great food that looks bad. After they get in another fight, they decide to have a competition to see whose pokémon can make the best meal in looks, taste, and performance. Meanwhile, Team Rocket is using this competition as a way to steal Mr. Mime and Sneasel.
