=== The Battle In the Battle Club ===

[[File:Best wishes episode 4 battle in the battle club.png|thumb|right|200px|The Trainer and his [[Dewott]].]] The battle between Ash and the Dewott trainer has begun. Iris thought to herself ''He was using a Dewott just now, but if he uses another water type, the Electric type Pikachu is at an advantage.'' Ash told Pikachu to do his best, but right when Pikachu jumped on the battle field [[Ash's Oshawott]] came out of its Poké Ball. Iris asked "What? Why did Oshawott come out?" Ash asked Oshawott "Why did you come out on your own?" Oshawott slapped the shell on its chest. Pikachu tried to tell Oshawott to go back in its Poké Ball, but Oshawott just pushes Pikachu. Oshawott jumps in front of Pikachu. The other trainer took a Poké Ball and threw it, a Dewott came out. Oshawott was its pre-evolved form and gasped. He went behind Pikachu. Ash put Oshawott back in its Poké Ball. Then the battle ''really'' started! Ash told Pikachu to use [[Thunderbolt]], the Dewott evaded the attack. "In that case, [[Iron Tail]]" Yelled Ash. The Iron Tail hit Dewott, then it fell down. Dewott got up. Ash told Pikachu to use [[Volt Tackle]]. Dewott evaded the attack making Pikachu hit a wall. The other trainer told his Dewott to use [[Razor Shell]]. While the battle is raging on, Team Rocket sneaks into the battle club warehouse hoping to steal some Pokémon and intelligence from it. However, a mysterious Pokémon jumps out at them and causes them to step back, therefore setting off the security alarm and causing them to retreat. The alarm interrupts the battle between Pikachu and Dewott.

=== Catching the Thief ===

Ash and the gang then check out what caused the alarm to go off and notices Team Rocket even though Don George has some confusion of who they were. What gives them more interest is the mysterious Pokémon that lashed out at [[Team Rocket]], whom is thought of to be an [[Umbreon]]. This shocks Don George because the region of [[Unova]] had never seen a Pokémon native to [[Johto]]. They devise plans to capture this Pokémon. Ash decides to lure the Umbreon out with Pokémon food and gets Oshawott involved in the process. While Ash leaves Pikachu and Oshawott to do patrol, Oshawott nibbles at the food in which Pikachu tries to make it stop so the plan will not go to ruin. Oshawott then pushes Pikachu back and it causes Pikachu to be knocked unconscious by a wall. Oshawott then greedily goes at the Pokémon food, eating it nonstop. Meanwhile, Team Rocket hears about the Umbreon rumor and schemes to make another attempt to rob the battle club. They decide to distract Don George and his crew with Meowth disguised as an Umbreon. Meowth then comes to Don George only to be chased by him and his crew until Meowth intentionally blows his cover by wiping the paint off the coin on his head. Don George and the Crew are shocked at this and break down but when Meowth starts talking, Don George realizes that even though they did not see Umbreon, they still think of Meowth as a very rare Pokémon because the Meowth species is native to [[Kanto]] and that it is even rarer to find a talking one. Don George and his crew then scheme to catch Meowth but Meowth gets away from them in a nick of time. Ash finishes setting up the Pokémon food and notices the Umbreon in the process. However, it turns out the Umbreon that was roaming around the battle club was actually a starved Tepig. Ash then notices that there was rope tangled around Tepig's snout therefore preventing it from eating. Ash then rushes out to help the Tepig and tells Iris about the whole story. They manage to corner Tepig and get the rope off his snout. They then give the Tepig Pokémon food and nurses it back to health instantly. Meanwhile, Team Rocket makes their second attempt at their battle club burglary when they notice the unconscious Pikachu on the ground. They ignore the burglary and decide to steal the Pikachu, but they get caught by Oshawott. Ash brings the sleeping Tepig to Don George, who tells Ash that it was left behind by an arrogant and selfish [[Shamus|trainer]] after it lost to a [[Deerling]] in the Battle club. The trainer tied up the Tepig to a stake and left it there. Don George noticed the crying Tepig and tried to help it but it chewed itself loose and went after its old trainer, therefore causing the rope to accidentally tangle around Tepig's snout. When the story was over, Ash could not believe the horrible thing Tepig's old trainer did and Iris vows to teach that trainer a huge lesson he will never forget if she meets him. Tepig then wakes up and notices Team Rocket walking behind Ash. Team Rocket tries to get away on their glass dome mecha but they are stopped by Tepig and it frees Pikachu. Team Rocket then escapes. Ash gets Pikachu back and thanks Tepig for stopping Team Rocket. Iris then says that it is time for her to capture Tepig, but because of Ash's care for Tepig, it prefers to be with Ash. Ash then captures the Tepig and heads out to [[Striaton City]].

Best wishes episode 4 battle in the battle club

The Trainer and his Dewott.

The battle between Ash and the Dewott trainer has begun. Iris thought to herself He was using a Dewott just now, but if he uses another water type, the Electric type Pikachu is at an advantage. Ash told Pikachu to do his best, but right when Pikachu jumped on the battle field Ash's Oshawott came out of its Poké Ball. Iris asked "What? Why did Oshawott come out?" Ash asked Oshawott "Why did you come out on your own?" Oshawott slapped the shell on its chest. Pikachu tried to tell Oshawott to go back in its Poké Ball, but Oshawott just pushes Pikachu. Oshawott jumps in front of Pikachu. The other trainer took a Poké Ball and threw it, a Dewott came out. Oshawott was its pre-evolved form and gasped. He went behind Pikachu. Ash put Oshawott back in its Poké Ball. Then the battle really started! Ash told Pikachu to use Thunderbolt, the Dewott evaded the attack. "In that case, Iron Tail" Yelled Ash. The Iron Tail hit Dewott, then it fell down. Dewott got up. Ash told Pikachu to use Volt Tackle. Dewott evaded the attack making Pikachu hit a wall. The other trainer told his Dewott to use Razor Shell. While the battle is raging on, Team Rocket sneaks into the battle club warehouse hoping to steal some Pokémon and intelligence from it. However, a mysterious Pokémon jumps out at them and causes them to step back, therefore setting off the security alarm and causing them to retreat. The alarm interrupts the battle between Pikachu and Dewott.

Ash and the gang then check out what caused the alarm to go off and notices Team Rocket even though Don George has some confusion of who they were. What gives them more interest is the mysterious Pokémon that lashed out at Team Rocket, whom is thought of to be an Umbreon.
