[[Ash's Pikachu]] has nearly mastered the Iron Tail move for the battle in Rustboro City's Gym. However, the second time it fails to do so, so Ash and Pikachu need more practicing. [[Brock (anime)|Brock]] discusses what tactics shouls Ash use against [[Roxanne's Geodude]]. [[Max]] asks what [[May (anime)|May]] thinks of the battle, to which May replies she won't battle, much to everyone's suprise. May explaines that she will be a Pokemon Coordiantor and says that she wanted to travel, but not to be a Pokemon Trainer, however during their travels she changed her mind about them. Ash and Brock support her about the idea.

Ash and [[Ash's Pikachu|Pikachu]] train, the latter has nearly mastered the Iron Tail move for the battle in Rustboro City's Gym, with May, Max and Brock watching. However, the second time the move fails, for Ash and Pikachu need more training. Ash and Pikachu take a break, while [[Brock (anime)|Brock]] discusses [[Roxanne's Geodude]], with its high level, would still prove a tough battle, even if Pikachu mastered Iron Tail. [[Max]] asks what [[May (anime)|May]] thinks of the battle, to which May replies she won't battle, much to everyone's surprise. May explains she wants to be a Pokémon Coordinator; at first, she wanted to travel, and being a trainer was a good excuse. However, after traveling with them all, May's opinion changed and started liking Pokémon and felt being a Coordinator was fit for her. Ash and Brock support her about the idea, while Max reminds her being a Coordinator is a tough job, though May promises to do her best.
   
[[James]] is shocked that [[Roxanne|the woman]] who defeated them before was a Gym leader. James then proposes to [[Jessie]] and [[Team Rocket's Meowth|Meowth]] to steal their Pokemon and try as best as they can - by becoming diggers. The gang arrives to the Gym, seeing that workers do their job on the field. Roxanne is pleased to know that Ash and May will start their first Gym battle in Rustboro City, but May explaines that she'll become a Coordinator instead. The workers have done their job, revealing them to be Roxanne's students. Roxanne proposes to have a videotape of Ash and her battling, to which Ash agrees.

Roxanne decides to have a videotape of her battle with Ash to show to her students later on. Before the battle begins, Max expresses his excitement to watch the first Gym battle, since he and May were never allowed to watch Norman battling, else they may've distracted the challengers.
