During the middle of the night, a Nuzleaf falls from its home in a tree and it carried across the forest by a Vileplume. The next day Nurse Joy tries to help it, but Nuzleaf just attacks her. Ash and friends come by and try to help. However, Team Rocket soon attacks and they capture Nuzleaf, Bonsly, and Brock! Brock tricks them into letting him loose from the tree he is tied to in order for him to cook a meal for them. While Team Rocket is eating, Brock grabs the pokémon and escapes. During the escape, Bonsly evolves into Sudowoodo. Now, Brock must get Nuzleaf back to its tree, meet up with Ash and Dawn, and fend off Team Rocket!
