|How was Totodile able to defeat Arbok with ONE water blast? Arbok is very strong against plain water types. Remember The Misty Mermaid?|
Our heroes arrive in a new town, but they need to find a place to spend the night. They try and find a Pokemon Center, but when they ask a lady (who Brock instantly falls in love with), she says that the town doesn't have one. Ash and friends don't really have a choice, so they have to camp out in a park.
There is a fountain in the park and a Nidorina walks up to it and starts drinking some water. The trainer sees her Pokemon and runs over to get it, but she trips on the way and is about to fall into the fountain when Brock saves her. The girl introduces herself as Tomoku and she instantly falls madly in love with Brock and starts planning how their wedding would be. The only problem is that for some strange reason, Brock doesn't like her.
When they're all talking about weddings, Misty mentions something about Ash and her getting married, but nobody really notices it. Tomoku ends up asking her father if her new friends can spend the night at her nice big house, and he says yes.
When they get to the house, they find out that it's like one big Pokemon lab. Tomoku makes them all dinner and continues to come on to Brock even though it is obvious how he feels about her. Misty tries to help make conversation by telling Tomoku how helpful Brock is on their journeys. Tomoku keeps on dreaming about the marriage and Brock gets extremely nervous, so Misty takes him aside. She tells him to stop leading her away since no other girl seems to like him. Misty also drops another hint towards her feelings about the boy from Pallet.
They go back to the table, but Brock still isn't comfortable. Tomoku asks him if he wants to be her Pokemon Assistant so they can work together, but it leads to another meeting away from the table. Misty tells Brock to start liking Tomoku, but suddenly a net drops down over all of the Pokemon. Team Rocket emerges and says their usual useless lines. Not long after, a battle ensues and Ash starts out by using Totodile, which easily handles Arbok. James tries to create a diversion by using a Weezing Smokescreen and it works! Team Rocket tries to haul the net away, but Tomoku gets caught on the rope of it.
When Team Rocket gets away and goes to see how their new Pokemon are, they find out that they caught Tomoku instead! Tomoku instantly falls in love with James when she sees him, but James obviously isn't interested in her. Jessie wants James to marry her so that they can swipe all of Tomoku's father's Pokemon. Jessie tells James to play along because when they get in the lab they can take all of the Pokemon and James will never have to see Tomoku again.
Back home, everyone is looking for Tomoku including the brats. The twerps end up spotting the Team Rocket balloon, but when they pop it, they find out that it's vacant. Tomoku's father meanwhile is at home and hears a knocking at his door that really irritates him since he is so stressed out. He answers it and finds his little girl at the door accompanied by Jessie, James and Meowth in disguise. Jessie tells the father about how Tomoku and James are going to get married since James saved her from Team Rocket.
The father buys into the trick, so Team Rocket goes into action and tries to steal some Pokemon, but the father walks in on them. Lucky for them, he doesn't notice what they're trying to do and they get called in for some free grub courtesy of Tomoku. James says that they better beat it, but Jessie refuses to since she would rather eat a free meal. The brats suddenly burst in and see right through Team Rocket's disguises. Team Rocket reveals that they're trying to steal Pokemon and they run off!
Once outside, another battle ensues between Ash and Team Rocket. Everything is going Ash's way (like usual), until Tomoku helps James by beating up Misty's Poliwhirl with her Nidorina. At the end of the battle, James is about to be hit by a Water Gun, but Tomoku saves him and takes the hit herself!
Ash is angry and ends up sending Team Rocket blasting thanks to a water and electric combo. Tomoku's father says that his daughter has wanted to get married ever since she went to his niece's wedding. Brock is really worried and admits that he likes Tomoku now, but when she wakes up, she falls in love with the doctor and they decide to get married.
After they have all said their usual goodbye's, Brock says that he is down about losing Tomoku. Brock then changes moods and is optimistic that he will find more love in the next town, so he starts to madly run ahead.
