The gang stops in Rubello Town and Ash would check the Pokémon Center. [[Max]] spots a poster, advertising the Pokémon Contest in Town. [[May (anime)|May]] is sure to stay until tomorrow night, but [[Brock (anime)|Brock]] sees a mark - R1. When they arrive, they ask [[Nurse Joy]] what R1 means. Joy says that one must have 1 ribbon already to enter. Luckily for May, she has 2 already. Joy says it are the Grand Festival rules, so May asks what that is - Drew is not surprised that she does not know. Drew is entering the Contest as well, taunting May. Suddenly, some women arrive to Drew - they are his fans.
   
May is headed for the Rubello Town Pokemon Contest, where at least one ribbon is needed to enter. She runs into Drew, and both of them are mobbed by the Mothers for Pokemon--a group of women who adore Pokemon Coordinators. One of them, Savannah, is a Coordinator herself, and will be competing in the upcoming contest, but she is really nervous.
+
One of them asks for an autograph, so Drew replies he "does not do autographs", amazing the fans. A woman asks May is she is Norman's daughter, so she confirms, so the fans come to her. The woman asks May is she's going to enter the Contest as well, so she also confirms. The other women cheer for the one with a ribbon on her neck. They mention MFP - Mothers for Pokémon - they are a group of wives, mothers and love Pokémon. They all agree to get May in a party. One of the women asks Ash if she saw him before and check her list, but with no matches. Team Rocket appears in the Town as well, so Jessie want stop enter the Contest. When explained to her what R1 means, she gets frustrated. The receptionist tells her she can't enter when she does not have any ribbons, depressing her.
   
Jessie wants to enter the contest, but can't since she has never won a ribbon.

The women give compliments to May, having earned 2 ribbons. One of the women asks her what Pokémon should she use, but May does not know yet. May asks the Coordinator which Pokémon she will use, so the women agree if she shows hers, May might have her choosing easier. At the Pokémon Center, the women leave, reminding the Coordinator of the list - the list of what to do. [[Brock (anime)|Brock]] knows that housework is a hard job, while Ash compliments him for being successful in those kind of jobs. Anyway, the woman shows Flareon and Lairon - the Pokémon she'll use in the Contest. She'll use both Pokémon - rules are that the Pokémon must be different in primary and secondary battles. May is left to think to decide which Pokémon should she use...
   
Later, May is practicing outside the Pokemon Center when she spots Drew with his new Masquerain. She tries to show off her Bulbasaur, but it won't listen to her.

The gang is wandering the town, while Brock shows Savannah some good tomatoes. May is still unsure what Pokémon should she use. Brock is about to take a turnip, but a girl takes the vegetable. It is Savannah's daughter, Sandra, who helps her do grocery shopping. Savannah introduces Sandra to the gang. Savannah tells May and Max are Norman's children, but Sandra tells Savannah can get carried away, especially in MFP. Ash gives his Pikachu to Sandra for holding and Sandra decides she'll become a trainer. Per Sandra's advice, Savannah invites the gang for dinner, to which they agree to.
   
The next day, May is helping Savannah practice when they are accosted by Team Rocket, who takes both May's and Savannah's ribbons. The kids take down Team Rocket's balloon and Jessie returns the stolen ribbons. Savannah's Lairon uses a Water-type move to send the thieves blasting off.

May trains her Pokémon, but all of them fail. However, May remembers the women supporting her, so she gains confidence to win. May hears Drew training his Masquerain. Drew invites May to come closer. They spot one another's new Pokémon, and while May orders Bulbasuar to meet Drew, it ignores her. May decides to enter the Contest with her Bulbasaur. The next day, Brock, Ash and Max ask May to come to do grocery shopping, but she says she needs to practice with Bulbasaur. The others are terrified because May has recently got Bulbasaur. May spots Savannah, being very upset when she's going to perform. Savannah asks May if she's going to practice with her. She spots Bulbasuar, mentioning that her 1st Pokémon was a Bulbasaur, but it is at her parents' home.
   
Savannah's daughter Sandra reassures her mother, while May is feeling confident again about the contest.

Meanwhile, the rest is shopping while [[Ash's Pikachu]] comes to Sandra. Anyway, May will battle with Savannah.

However, Team Rocket steals the ribbons so that Jessie will enter the Contest. Bulbasaur attacks with Razor Leaf, but the attack is deflected by Dustox's Whirlwind.

*Wobbuffet appears to have used Counter in response to Flamethrower, a Special move. The correct move to produce a favorable result would have been Mirror Coat.
