|Love is a Many Splendored Thing|
|When Misty's Luvdisc gets kidnapped, it's up to Tracey and Daisy to save it.|
|Misty's Luvdisc is called Luverin and Daisy's is Caserin. Misty and Daisy now have Luvdiscs. The plot is very similar to Bye, Bye Butterfree when Ash's Butterfree got denied by the pink girl Butterfree. Tracey and Daisy seem to be developing a "relationship", which is very likely because Tracey took Daisy to dinner in A Date with Delcatty.|
The snow is falling lightly outside. Two people walk into a shop. They ask for an ice cream sundae. These people are really Cassidy and Butch. They get their sundae and start to mix it up with spoons. Butch picks up his spoon and a small computer chip lays on it. They set the computer chip on the table, and Professor Nanba starts to speak from it. He wants to capture a Luvdisc so that he can deplete love from the world. Then Professor Nanba tells them to go to Cerulean City for the Luvdisc.
Tracey walks in the Cerulean Gym. Misty greets him once again and didn't expect to see him. Tracey tells Misty that Daisy has some new Pokemon to show her. Violet and Lily are out once again getting manucures and doing other stuff. Tracey never got a manucure before, but he heard from Professor Oak that they are relaxing. Daisy calls out for Tracey. She brings Tracey to the aquarium and shows him a Luvdisc. Tracey gets out his sketchbook to draw Luvdisc. Daisy and Misty tells Tracey that there's another Luvdisc hiding. Tracey observes Kasurin some more and he notices that it is pointing at something. Kasurin is pointing at Raburin because it is in love. The other Raburin, however, doesn't have the same feelings towards Kasurin. Daisy talks about a underwater spectacular plan. Misty and Tracey look confused, but Daisy thinks that it will be romantic and fun.
Daisy pictures Misty in her mermaid costume looking for someone to love. Then Daisy says that Misty has found a handsome prince. Tracey can play as the prince. Deep down the mermaid and the prince love each other, but they are too afraid to show their love. Suddenly, Kasurin and Raburin fall in love with each other, and so does the mermaid and the prince.
Misty thought that Daisy was going to do a movie, but Daisy likes water ballets better. Daisy says that their costumes are so cool. Tracey doesn't know about this and Misty doesn't want to change into her mermaid costume either. Tracey nervously asks if he has to wear tights in the show, and Daisy tells him that he does. Tracey tells Daisy that he is busy with the lab and Misty says that she's busy with the gym. Daisy doesn't know why Misty has to be so stubborn. Kasurin continues to try to get Raburin to love him but it still doesn't work. Psyduck pops out of its Pokeball and it lands in the water. It freaks out because of the water, but Misty puts the inner tube on Psyduck. Tracey thinks that Psyduck is trying to get both of the Luvdisc together. Raburin still doesn't want to be with Kasurin, and so it uses a Water Gun on Psyduck.
Raburin swims away and a purple bubble follows it. Suddenly, the bubble opens and it traps Raburin inside. Cassidy and Butch appear on the diving board, and then they say their motto. Daisy demands them to give Raburin back. Cassidy says no and she sends out her Sableye. Sableye fires a Shadow Ball at the group. It explodes and a lot of smoke gets in their way. Cassidy and Butch make their getaway in their vehicle. Tracey has a plan to get Raburin back.
They want Kasurin to point into the direction where Raburin is at. Kasurin doesn't want to do it, but after a few words from Misty Kasurin agrees to help out. Kasurin concentrates hard and it points to the west. Daisy puts on her gloves and sunglasses and says a phrase that she got from a movie. Then she drives towards Raburin.
Cassidy and Butch continue to drive towards Professor Nanba. They notice that Misty and co. are following them. Butch goes extra fast, but Daisy speeds up towards them. Then she passes Team Rocket and thinks that she has won a race. Daisy almost forgot that they have to rescue Raburin. Team Rocket dives into the water and they drive off. Tracey says that they need to find a boat fast. Daisy tells him that there is one in the trunk of her car. Tracey pumps up the raft and they speed up towards Team Rocket. Misty needs Kasurin to show them the way towards Raburin. Kasurin concentrates and points to a cavern.
Cassidy and Butch look at the screen to the outside. They plan to catch both Luvdisc to double their success. Misty and co. head into the cavern. They hit some rocks and Daisy quickly jumps out. Misty and Tracey walk off the raft as well. Tracey struggles with the big backpack he is carrying. Suddenly, a mechanical arm comes out and it pulls on Tracey's backpack that holds Kasurin. Then a trap door appears and Misty, Tracey, and Daisy falls down. The backpack slips out of Tracey's arms. Cassidy and Butch laugh at their success.
Misty and co. wonder on how they are going to escape. They hear a voice and the rocks open. Cage bars separates Misty and co. and Team Rocket. Team Rocket tells them that they are never going to escape. They reveal Kasurin and Raburin in a tank. Then Team Rocket leaves. Tracey knows that they have to think of something fast. Daisy asks Misty about her Pokemon, but she left them at the gym. Misty and Daisy looks at Tracey, but Tracey tells them that he left his Pokemon back at the gym too. Misty gets an idea. She tells Kasurin to perform a Tackle attack to break the cage bars. Kasurin doesn't want to do it, but Misty tells Kasurin to do it for Raburin. Kasurin does a Tackle attack but it doesn't work. Misty tells Kasurin to keep on trying. Raburin is watching Kasurin use Tackle. Finally, Kasurin breaks the cage bars. Daisy wonders how the two Luvdisc will escape. Tracey sees a window above and says that they can escape from the window. Kasurin uses Water Gun on the window. With a good push, Kasurin manages to break the window.
Cassidy and Butch notice that the two Luvdisc are trying to escape. Raburin uses Water Gun out the window and Kasurin uses Ice Beam out the window. The two attacks creates an icicle trail for them to escape on. Team Rocket appears and they don't look very happy. Butch takes the purple bubble machine and he puts it in the water. Misty orders Kasurin to use a Double Team. Butch freaks out because he can't find the real Luvdisc. While Team Rocket is busy trying to find the Luvdisc, Kasurin and Raburin escape on their icicle trail. Cassidy and Butch run after them. They notice that the Luvdisc can run on land. The two Luvdisc runs towards the edge of the cliff. They turn around and see Cassidy and Butch staring at them. Below the cliff is rushing water. Kasurin wants Raburin to jump off. Butch creeps closer towards the Luvdisc. Suddenly, Kasurin and Raburin touch each other with their mouths, and they jump off together. Cassidy and Butch have hearts in their eyes. They both think that it's romantic. Then they realize that the Luvdisc have gotten away and they go after them.
Tracey has the control box for the purple bubble. He's starting to get the hang with it. He tells Misty and Daisy to jump when he says "when". The purple bubble comes to fast and it explodes the cage bars. Misty and co. runs off to find the two Luvdisc. The Luvdisc swims down the stream. They come across a fence and they decide to turn back. Another fence comes up blocking their path. Team Rocket is above. Cassidy sends out Sableye and Butch sends out Mightyena. Kasurin fires a Water Gun right at Butch's face. Cassidy gets angry and she orders Sableye to use Fury Swipes. Sableye is about to attack, but then it remembers that it can't swim. This gets Cassidy mad. Butch presses a button and the fences begin to close in on the Luvdisc.
Misty and co. has found Team Rocket. Misty tells both Luvdisc to use Agility. The Luvdisc jumps quickly into the air before the fences can close on them. Then she shouts out that the two Luvdisc have to work together. She tells Daisy that they have to work together as well. Mightyena starts off with an Iron Tail, but Kasurin uses Hydro Pump on Mightyena which sends it flying though the air. Then Sableye fires a Shadow Ball at the Luvdisc. Raburin fires a Water Gun and Casperine fires an Ice Beam. The Shadow Ball turned into a ball of ice. Butch gets mad and orders Mightyena to use Hyper Beam. Before Mightyena can fire the attack, Raburin shoots out a Sweet Kiss which confuses Mightyena. Then Misty and Daisy command both Luvdisc to use Water Gun. While Team Rocket is in the air, Sableye and Mightyena become attracted to each other. Then they go blasting off again.
Misty and co. are performing the water ballet back at the Cerulean Gym. Kasurin and Raburin kiss and they happily fly in the air. Misty and Tracey are astounded at the acting. Tracey gets out the camera and they take pictures.
