The gang is having breakfast, while May practices with her Beautifly. She throws a Frisbee and it uses Gust, throwing the Frisbee back to May. The process is repeated once more, but May throws the Frisbee in the wrong direction, so Torchic goes to get it. Torchic begins to speed up, as the terrain is narrow. Torchic bashes on a rock, but sees the Frisbee. When Torchic begins to take it up, it hears a noise from the grass and looks for the source. The gang goes to find Torchic, but they notice a Pokémon shivering.
The Pokémon is Skitty. May goes to meet it and when Skitty gets her attention, May bursts of happiness - she'd like to catch it. Torchic prepares for battle, but Skitty does not want to battle May. Brock offers it food, but Skitty refuses, so it must be tired. Brock leads them to a place, but during their walk, the gang notice Oddish and Weepinbell. The gang arrives to the greenhouse where Skitty will recover.
The Skitty will recover with aroma therapy. The woman (which Brock identifies as Eliza and begins to flirt with her) arrives and May explains that Skitty needs rest. Eliza invites them in, and Brock goes to flirt with her more, but Max pulls his ear. The gang enters in, so Eliza shows the products. Brock tries to impress Eliza, but Max once again pulls his ear. Eliza checks Skitty, so she begins to mix aroma to make it feel better. Eliza made the mixture and releases the smell, so Skitty begins to feel better already.
May will stay with Skitty, while the others go out. Team Rocket spots the lab as well, so James and Jessie think that their Pokémon would do well to breathe the smell. Meowth thinks that their boss should be given the mixtures - Giovanni would feel better and a promotion for them would arrive. James reminds that the mixtures are meant for Pokémon, so they stick to James and Jessie's plan. Skitty awakes and plays around. Eliza goes to check Skitty, but Skitty sees Pikachu's tail and goes after it. Skitty after that eats Brock's food.
May still plans to catch it, so she brings out Torchic, despite battling inside the lab. Skitty tackles Torchic. Torchic uses Quick Attack, hitting Skitty. May almost uses a Poké Ball, but the window is destroyed and Team Rocket appears. Jessie sends Seviper to use Haze. Team Rocket begins to steal the mixtures, but Skitty appears near Meowth, so he falls in love with it. Brock tackles James, but the mixtures are combined, so every Pokémon gets super-happy, though humans think it smells awful. Team Rocket jumps out through the window with the mixtures and go to the balloon, but Brock takes the mixtures James took already.
Ash sends Corphish and uses Bubble Beam, hitting Seviper. James brings Cacnea and uses Pin Missile, but Cophish uses Harden. When James sees Weepinbell, he wants to take them, but the rest of Team Rocket flies off. Corphish uses Crabhammer to send James to the balloon. Next, he sends Taillow and it uses Wing Attack, blasting them off. After the battle, Brock saved a bottle, but May does not see Skitty. Team Rocket has blasted off and Jessie sees the mixtures, with no bottle being broken. Skitty appears out of the bag, making Meowth in love.
Skitty plays around. Jessie is happy, so she wants to capture it, but Meowth isn't thrilled, as Skitty would be blasted off every time. Meowth then tries to convince that it should be given to the boss, making him happier. Jessie isn't convinced, as she thinks it is her own. Meowth goes with Skitty, so he tells her to go away, but Skitty is still happy and stays with him. Meowth throws a rock to make her go away, so Skitty goes to catch the rock. Jessie appears, asking where Skitty is, but Meowth replies she got away. Jessie is ultra-furious and kicks Meowth, but Meowth hasn't forgotten that "it is all for the best".
The gang searches for Skitty. Taillow has found Skitty, so everybody goes after it. They see Team Rocket's balloon blasted off. Eliza sends Oddish and uses Sweet Scent. Team Rocket search for Skitty, but Meowth and Jessie's Wobbuffet smell Oddish's scent. May demands to know what happened to Skitty, but Skitty appears, so Meowth tries to make it run away. Jessie hears Meowth's words, but Meowth stops. Jessie sends Dustox and May sends her Beautifly. Beautifly uses Gust, but Dustox uses Tackle. Beautifly dodges, so Dustox uses Psybeam. Beautifly dodges the attacks and uses Tackle, hitting Dustox and uses Gust, knocking Team Rocket. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt, blasting them off.
May holds Skitty and uses a Poké Ball, but Skitty thinks it is a toy. However, when it touches, Skitty goes into the ball and is captured. Eliza gives the gang directions to Fallarbor Town. Brock makes his final flirt, but is once more taken by Max. The gang goes off, but Skitty goes away from its Poké Ball, playing around.

- Following Misty's example, from this episode, Max will pull Brock's ears when he flirts.
