==Episode Plot==
As the gang eats lunch, Axew and Tepig see something unusual. The gang comes and they see a weird thing - a battered Team Rocket's Mewoth, but without Jessie and James. As Cilan and Iris tend his wounds, he awakes, quite suprised. He tells them he got fired, as the last job he made failed, and got him fired. Jessie and James abandoned him and Meowth traveled to here. Iris thinks they should leave him alone, but Ash thinks he should travel with them - he is no longer a member of Team Rocket. Mewoth agrees to, even if Pikachu senses something fishy.

As the heroes eat lunch, Axew and Tepig see something unusual. The heroes come and see Meowth, laying unconscious. They recognize him from Team Rocket and know he needs to be healed. As Cilan and Iris tend his wounds, Meowth wakes up, shocked the twerps are here. They tell him they found him unconscious and nursed him back to health. Meowth tells them he got fired, as he messed up the last job. Jessie and James abandoned him and Meowth traveled to here. The heroes believe he should travel with them, for he is the only Meowth in Unova. Meowth agrees to and decides to help out sometimes. Meowth thinks Ash has a lot of Gym Badges, but Ash replies he has won three so far. Meowth tells Ash is a great trainer and will get the badges, though Pikachu senses Meowth is bragging.
   
As they travel near a mountain landslide, a Pokemon catches Iris' Axew and runs to a lodge. It is a Scrafty. Scrafty puts Axew on a table, who uses Dragon Rage, smashing the window. Ash and Iris go to get Axew, but with Mewoth stops them, as he and Pikachu hear that Scrafty will hurt Axew. Mewoth goes to negotiate, and the result is that he wants anyone to battle him. Mewoth thinks Ash should send his Scraggy, as he has an idea. Ash goes up and Meowth speaks with Scrafty, to teach Scraggy some new moves. Before, however, Scraggy goes to attack Mewoth, but Ash says Mewoth changed. Scrafty teaches him how to use Jump Kick, while Ash sees Axew has been tied inside. Meanwhile, Jessie and James go to the Nimbasa Underground, captioning a picture of the map of the Underground, seeing a computer controls the trains and placing a device on the wall of the Underground.
+
As they travel, Axew notices a bottle cap on the ground. He goes after it, but a Pokémon catches Axew and goes away, into a lodge. The heroes try to get inside, but Meowth stops them, as he translates the thief will hurt Axew. Axew comes out of the Pokémon's pouch and uses Dragon Rage and smashes the window. However, the Pokémon is mad, scaring Axew. Cilan recognizes the thief being a Scrafty. Meowth goes to negotiate and the heroes see he might have a chance. Meowth reports Scrafty wants to be battled, as it wants to improve its battling skills. Cilan sees they will have to battle Scrafty to buy some time. Ash sneaks behind, while Meowth asks Scrafty why does it want to battle and whom. Ash and Meowth come back, the latter telling Scrafty did not specify details. Ash thinks he can grab Axew through the window, while Meowth thinks he can distract Scrafty if Scraggy comes with him.
   
Ash and Mewoth return to Iris and Cilan. Ash has an idea - he sends Snivy (who attacks Meowth, but Ash tells her he changed) and while Mewoth chats with Scrafty, he'll get Axew. As Mewoth chats with Scrafty (who goes out of the lodge), Snivy pulls Axew up with Vine Whip. Mewoth goes away and Scrafty is electrocuted with Pikachu's Thunderbolt. Scrafty reveals his face and goes to attack, but is hurt once more. Afterwards, Scrafty begs them to fight, so Ash sends Tepig. Scrafty bashes his head, though Tepig evades and uses Ember. Scrafty goes to use Focus Blast, but Tepig dodges and attacks with Fire Charge, defeating it.
+
Meowth claims to have a good plan is to have a back-up plan. Iris reminds him his backlup plan failed at Team Rocket, getting him fired, making Meowth sad. Cilan reminds him he is the only one that can translate. Ash sends Scraggy and Snivy, who both attack Meowth upon seeing him. Meanwhile, Jessie and James came to Nimbasa Underground and take a photo of the blueprints. Inside a train, they see there is no driver, as it is automized. For a final touch, Jessie puts a spying device near the tracks. Meowth comes with Scraggy to Scrafty. Meowth asks Scrafty to teach Scraggy a new move. Scrafty teaches him how to use High Jump Kick, while Ash sees Axew has been tied inside. While Scrafty teaches Scraggy, Snivy uses Vine Whip and pulls Axew out of the lodge.
   
Scrafty cries, as it wanted to take its home back. Scrafty takes them to the site where a Mandibuzz resides. Mandibuzz uses Shadow Ball, marking that she does not want them near. Scraggy goes in - Mandibuzz goes to peck it, but misses and bashes her head to the stone. Scraggy uses Jump Kick, defeating her. Mandibuzz cries as well, as she was kicked out by another when she ate the apples. She takes them to the nest, where the other Mandibuzz goes to attack. Mewoth persudaes the other Mandibuzz to allow the first one to come back, as Mandibuzz offered apples. Everyone is happy, so at the end, Iris is quite amazed and goes to capture Meowth, but Mewoth goes out just in time, as he prefers to stay out than into. Jessie and James see the path out of the Underground, continuing their plans.
+
Meowth goes away with Scraggy and Scrafty is electrocuted with Pikachu's Thunderbolt. Iris is pleased Axew is safe, while Meowth translates from Scraggy that Scrafty has freaked out. Scrafty reveals his face and goes to battle, so Ash sends Tepig. Scrafty attempts to headbutt Tepig, who dodges and tackles it back. Scrafty uses High Jump Kick, but misses and gets hit by Ember. Scrafty uses Focus Blast, but Tepig avoids the attack and defeats it with Flame Charge. Scrafty cries, as it wanted to retake its home back, but nobody helped it. Scrafty takes them to the site where a Mandibuzz lives. Scrafty goes to talk to her, but Mandibuzz uses Shadow Ball on Scrafty. Scraggy goes to fight Madibuzz, who uses Shadow Ball, but misses. Madibuzz tries to peck Scraggy, who dodges, causing Mandibuzz to hit the ground, causing her head to be stuck. Scraggy uses High Jump Kick, defeating Mandibuzz. Ash thanks Scrafty for teaching Scraggy this new move.

Mandibuzz cries as well, as she was kicked out by another Mandibuzz, for this Mandibuzz tricked her family. Meowth decides to help her out as well, surprising the heroes. She takes them to the nest, where the other Mandibuzz uses Shadow Ball. Meowth persuades the other Mandibuzz to allow the first one to come back, as Mandibuzz offered apples as a peace offering. Meowth tells sometimes there will be tough moments, in which one needs to be with its buddies. Mandibuzz forgives the other one, making everyone pleased. The heroes admit Meowth is a hero, for his persuasive tactics saved the day. Iris decides to catch Meowth, throwing a Poké Ball at him. Meowth comes out, clarifying he is not anyone's Pokémon. Still, he decides to travel with them and help them out, making Pikachu skeptical. During the night, Jessie and James see the trains come from Anville Town and go to report to Dr. Zager.
