While traveling through the forest, the group see who they think is a thief. Ash sends Pikachu after it, but Pikachu is scared because he holds a gun. When a Growlithe comes by to knock the gun out of it's hand, Pikachu goes. They are all stopped because he isn't a thief, but a police officer training the K-9 police squad. Ash wants to have them train Pikachu, but doesn't realize he must go, too. Jenny gets Ash and Pikachu early in the morning and they start. Ash and Pikachu don't make it as the course is tough. Brock suggests for him to not try because he feels Pikachu is already the perfect Pokémon. Team Rocket intrude as usual, this time with gases to confuse the smell of things and higher everyone's voices. Jessie and James dress as Officer Jenny and they use megaphones that give them different voices. They use a Jenny voice to command the Growlithe around, but Pikachu fights them. Jessie dresses as Ash then, and switches to an Ash voice. Pikachu is not confused, making Ash realize how perfect Pikachu really is. The Growlithe continue to attack until they realize Jessie isn't the the real Officer Jenny. They beat off Team Rocket and the group continue on their way.
