[[Ash Ketchum|Ash]], [[May (anime)|May]] and [[Max]] dive into the lake. [[Brock (anime)|Brock]] has some exercise before going to water, but accidentally slips over into the lake. Everyone is having fun, but [[Ash's Pikachu]] notices some lotuses coming to them. This scares May and starts screaming. Everyone tries to swim ashore, but they are pulled down, into the water. Everyone sees the creatures are actually [[Lotad]], who look friendly enough. They gather under the heroes and catapult them back to the shore. Lotad come to the shore, making Ash and Max suspect they want to play. Lotad use Water Gun to the sky, making a magnificent look, welcoming the heroes to the lake. Max is surprised, for Lotad normally cannot use Water Hun. They spot that a Lotad can't use Water Gun effectively and once everyone stops, the lone Lotad still tries to use Water Gun. Brock approaches it, but the Lotad uses the Water Gun on Brock effectively. A child comes, warning the heroes the lake belongs to the Lotad. May sees the bossy girl would be a perfect match for Max, annoying him. The girl shouts they will be taught a lecture, startling the heroes.

Team Rocket wanders the forest, being hungry and thirsty. Jessie wonders if they are near the end of the forest, but Meowth reminds her if they were, they wouldn't be wandering aimlessly. Suddenly, [[James]] passes out. James thinks this is the end, making Jessie and Meowth touched, since they'd give out water to James the moment they spot it. Before James closes his eyes, he sees a fruit on a nearby tree; a berry. [[Jessie]] and [[Team Rocket's Meowth|Meowth]] fight over the berry and the moment they bite it, they are startled by its spiciness. Meanwhile, the child, named [[Natalie]], is being scolded by her sister, [[Nicole]], for being rude to the travelers. Nicole apologises to the heroes for Natalie's behaviour and introduces herself to the heroes. Brock starts flirting with Nicole, displeasing Ash, May and Max. The third sister, [[Rita (Hoenn)|Rita]], arrives, warning Nicole about the pipe leaks. Brock also flirts with Rita, but Natalie is jealous, saying that she should have been given a compliment as well. Nicole sees Natalie had only fallen in love, inspiring May for "love at first sight".

  +
The heroes are having pies made of berries. Nicole explains these Oran Berries, used to bake the pies, are actually grown in their garden. Brock is startled, since Natalie brought him too many pies. Outside, Ash brings his [[Ash's Swellow|Taillow]] and [[Ash's Sceptile|Treecko]] out, while Brock brings his [[Brock's Forretress|Forretress]] as well, with May her [[May's Blaziken|Torchic]] out. Nicole shows her garden, full of berries, like Oran, Pecha and Tamato ones. Ash tries to eat the last one, but is warned by Nicole Tamato Berries are quite spicy and are used to feed Pokémon and give different kinds of effects. Brock is interested in berries, so Natalie promises to make a list of which berries and in which quantities should Brock use. This makes Brock happy, but falls down, hearing Natalie would do that because he is "her boyfriend". Rita thinks that the pipes should be replaced with newer ones, though Nicole fears it would be a tough job.
  +
  +
Suddenly, Lotad are walking with a portion of water on their lotus. They pour the water to the trees, as a way to thank for growing the trees. Max wonders how come Lotad use Water Gun when they normally cannot, with Nicole replying that Lotad here are different then other ones that can be encountered in the wild. Ash proposes they could help out tending the garden for a while and everyone agrees. At the lake, James drinks the water from the lake, but wonders about Jessie and Meowth. Jessie and Meowth raise their heads up, having extended lips, since they ate the spicy Tomato Berry. James spots that the twerps are nearby and Meowth notices the Lotad. Meowth imagines the boss with the Lotad, who would give the boss fresh water every morning. Team Rocket sees this could work, since the boss would give them promotions and decide to capture the Lotad.
  +
  +
The heroes help out, though they see the Lotad stopped moving, for the Lotad (who soaked Brock with Water Gun earlier) did not pour the water on the trees. Brock shows the Lotad it needs to lower its head for water to come down. Lotad does so, pleasing everyone it managed to accomplish the task. The Lotad lowers its head several times, a way to thank Brock. Rita notices Brock is a good breeder to help out a Pokémon like that. Later, the Lotad go to the lake, with the smaller Lotad left behind. Rita arrives, showing the message from Natalie, who is gathering Sitrus Berries for Brock. Ash, Rita and Brock run off to find her, but Nicole warns them the night will come soon. Natalie, however, is walking to find the berries, since she promised Brock she'd find the berries. As the night fell down, Ash, Nicole and Brock search for Natalie. Suddenly the small Lotad appears, who followed Brock to search for Natalie as well. Natalie managed to find the Sitrus Berry. Suddenly, the bushes start moving, causing Natalie to scream. Ash, Rita and Brock hear Natalie's scream, as she is attacked by [[Beedrill]]. Brock sends his Forretress out and uses Rapid Spin. The Beedrill flies off, while Brock, Ash and Rita come to Natalie, who gets scolded by Rita. Natalie gives the Sitrus Berry to Brock, who appreciates the gift.
  +
  +
Suddenly, Pikachu hears something, so everyone heads back to the lake. There, they find Team Rocket, who arrived to the lake and sail off to capture the Lotad. Pikachu talks with Lotad and soon Pikachu sails on top of Lotad's head to warn the others. The Lotad are being captured by Team Rocket, while May, Max and Nicole observe, but Pikachu and Lotad arrive. Pikachu jumps on the rail of Team Rocket's ship, while Lotad uses Water Gun, creating a hole to free others from the captivity. With the Lotad free, Pikachu uses Thunderbolt, blasting Team Rocket away. After the battle is over, Nicole makes it clear Natalie should not go harvesting berries on her own. The next day, Natalie gives the list of berries she promised to Brock. The Lotad appears again and Brock raises it up. Max suspects Lotad wants to go with Brock. The sisters approve of Brock receiving Lotad, who is willing to join Brock. Brock sees they are a team now, pleasing Lotad. With everything being done, the heroes wave goodbye and head off to [[Rustboro City]].

Episode PlotEdit

Ash, May and Max dive into the lake. Brock has some exercise before going to water, but accidentally slips over into the lake. Everyone is having fun, but Ash's Pikachu notices some lotuses coming to them. This scares May and starts screaming. Everyone tries to swim ashore, but they are pulled down, into the water. Everyone sees the creatures are actually Lotad, who look friendly enough. They gather under the heroes and catapult them back to the shore. Lotad come to the shore, making Ash and Max suspect they want to play. Lotad use Water Gun to the sky, making a magnificent look, welcoming the heroes to the lake. Max is surprised, for Lotad normally cannot use Water Hun. They spot that a Lotad can't use Water Gun effectively and once everyone stops, the lone Lotad still tries to use Water Gun. Brock approaches it, but the Lotad uses the Water Gun on Brock effectively. A child comes, warning the heroes the lake belongs to the Lotad. May sees the bossy girl would be a perfect match for Max, annoying him. The girl shouts they will be taught a lecture, startling the heroes.

Team Rocket wanders the forest, being hungry and thirsty. Jessie wonders if they are near the end of the forest, but Meowth reminds her if they were, they wouldn't be wandering aimlessly. Suddenly, James passes out. James thinks this is the end, making Jessie and Meowth touched, since they'd give out water to James the moment they spot it.

The third sister, Rita, arrives, warning Nicole about the pipe leaks. Brock also flirts with Rita, but Natalie is jealous, saying that she should have been given a compliment as well.
