Ash, Dawn, Brock, and Cheryl continue to look for the Amber Castle so they can find some Enchanted Honey. While following Mothim, they run into a girl named Gardenia. After seeing Ash's Turtwig, Gardenia asks Ash for a battle. Ash agrees and he quickly thinks he has victory after she recalls Cherubi and is confident in Turtwig's speed. However, Gardenia's Turtwig is extremely fast and takes down both Turtwig and Staravia. Ash then realizes he must train even harder for the Eterna Gym. While they continue their search, Gardenia tells them to find a Combee to help them in their search. Before they can go find one, Team Rocket shows up to cause trouble.
