Continuing their way to Driftveil City, Ash and Iris have a practice battle with Scraggy and Axew. After the battle, a Gothita appears and takes a liking to Scraggy. Gothita's trainer Katharine appears soon after. After seeing how much Gothita likes Scraggy, she offers Ash a trade. Ash refuses to trade Scraggy, and so Katharine demands a battle, and if she wins he must trade Scraggy. Midway through the battle it starts to rain and everyone runs to a nearby cottage to take shelter. During the middle of the night Gothita wakes up and takes off with Scraggy. Axew and Snivy give chase but will they be able to stop Gothita?
