"Enter Iris and Axew" is the second episode in the season Pokémon: Black and White.
After being struck by lightning, Pikachu is having trouble using its Electric-type attacks... but a second strange thunderstorm heals the Pokemon just as quickly! Attributing the ordeal to the Legendary Pokemon Zekrom, Professors Oak and Juniper agree that further research is needed.
Meanwhile, Team Rocket has arrived in the Unova region and prepares to launch an operation designed to steal both Zekrom and Pikachu! Ash is eager to start his new journey, and armed with a new Pokedex and new Pokeballs, our hero sets out to meet as many Unova Pokemon as he can. While trying to catch a Pidove, Ash runs into a girl named Iris and her Pokemon Axew. It doesn't take long for Team Rocket to launch a plot to steal Pikachu, Pidove and Axew, too! Of course, Ash springs into action, battling his old enemies Jessie, James and Meowth. He gets some help from an unexpected source: Oshawott, who has been following Ash and Pikachu since they left Professor Juniper's lab. Before long, all the Pokemon are safely returned while Team Rocket mysteriously vanishes.
The group visits the Pokemon Center where Nurse Joy restores Pikachu, Axew and Pidove to perfect health. Iris admits that although Ash acts "like a kid", she is impressed with the way he sprang into action when saving their three Pokemon. And Ash wonders out loud why Oshawott helped them out the way it did...
