==Episode Plot==
The gang has arrived to Nimbasa City. Cilan is quite happy, as he can explain the way people use transport - the trains. To get in a specific location, people use the trains instead. Cilan tells them that the trains are specific to the Nimbasa City and has once been in the train convention, even if Iris is unhappy that Cilan is a Connoisseur specializing in trains. When they wait for a train, they do spot a train passing, but did not stop.
+
The heroes has arrived to Nimbasa City. Cilan checks that many trainers come to participate in many battles, which is why Nimbasa City has many facilities around. Meowth tells them he needs to go to the Pokémon Center, for he is exhausted. Ash wants to go to the Gym right away, but Iris hears his stomach grumbling, thinking he should also get a meal. Cilan leads them to the Subway, for this is the only means of transport in Nimbasa City. Iris thinks he is a little kid to love trains, but Cilan replies he is a Metro Connoiseur. Cilan admires the trains, but Ash thinks it is an ordinary cart. Cilan explains that is a double train, the first mass-produced train to contain small number of machine parts, for it can travel faster and is less expensive to manufacture. As Cilan continues to ramble, Meowth pulls him away, for they all are hungry.
   
The Subway Bosses, Ingo and Emmet arrive, meting Cilan once more. They explain that some days ago the haunted train has came to the subway and they are powerless against it, they cannot stop it, much to Cilan's shock. Ash still wants the Gym battle, but Meowth tells him they should go to Pokémon Center first. When they come, Nurse Joy tells them that they have a relaxation room for Pokémon. Meowth is eager to come, so Ash, Iris and Cilan give their Pokémon.
+
Inside a train, Iris tells Cilan he is emberrasing them, for he is starting at a window. Cilan points out there is nobody controlling the train, for it is automatized, controlled by the main computer. Suddenly, the train stops, as the emergency system has been activated. Iris notices a train passing by and remarks he has not seen such a model, while the others tell it is a ghost train. Iris and Ash spot two lights in the distance, which Cilan recognizes as Subway Bosses. Cilan clarifies to Ash and Iris they are responsible for running the Nimbasa Underground. Ingo and Emmet arrive and fix the system, making the train to be powered again. Ingo and Emmet are glad to see Cilan again, being an subway lover. They explain that some days ago this haunted train appeared and goes through the subway. However, they cannot stop it, plus it vanishes mysteriously. Cilan is enraged someone would do that, though Meowth pulls him away.
   
As Ash, Iris and Cilan go to eat, Meowth wants to make a call. Meowth calls some people, telling them to initiate the operation and goes back to go to the relaxation room. Ash also reminds himself he needs to make a call. He calls Prof. Oak and tells him he is in Nimbasa City. Oak is pleased to hear that, but unexpectedly, the link to Oak is lost. Ash tells this problem to Iris and Cilan, so they go to the Driftveil Drawbridge, seeing it offline. Cilan begins to think... and realizes their Pokémon are in danger!
+
When they come to the Pokémon Center, the heroes admire its size. Nurse Joy tells them the Center is large, for there are quite many trainers that battle around Nimbasa City. Meowth heard of the relaxation chambers and would like to go there to rest. He asks the twerps to send their Pokémon to enjoy the relaxation, which they do. As Ash, Iris and Cilan go to eat, Meowth forgot something and goes to phone someone. Meowth calls Dr. Zager, telling him to initiate the operation and goes back to go to the relaxation room. Ash remembers he needs to make a call. Meowth comes back and explains to Axew and Pikachu Audino or Nurse Joy need to touch the pad to unlock the door, for that is a security system. Ash calls Prof. Oak and tells him he is in Nimbasa City. Oak is pleased to hear that, but Dr. Zager disrupts the communcations, causing Ash to lose the link with Oak. Meowth tells Audino to take a break, while he has an evil grin on his face, for Pikachu and Axew are asleep. Dr. Zager manipulates the drawbridge.
   
Pikachu and Axew are asleep, so Meowth begins to throw the Poke Balls, along with Pikachu and Axew in cages. Axew and Pikachu awake as they are thrown in vents. Ash, Cilan and Iris came to the Pokémon Center and tell Nurse Joy of danger. When they enter the relaxation room, they see it empty. Ash, Iris and Cilan spot the opened vent shaft, so they go inside. At the end, they spot Team Rocket, Meowth and the haunted train. The truth is revealed: Meowth was only lying about being fired from Team Rocket and was traveling with Ash and his friends only to earn their trust, so Team Rocket could steal their Pokemon. They go to get them, but the train starts to move. Cilan reports this to Subway Bosses, so they tell him there is a cart nearby.
+
While Ash tells Iris and Axew his call with Oak got cut off, Meowth opens a vent and throws every Poké Ball he can find, including Axew and Pikachu. The Pokémon go through the vent, into the train, controlled by Jessie and James, knowing Officer Jenny is busy with the drawbridge problem. The heroes arrive and Joy warns them the drawbridge has been manipulated. Cilan sees it is part of a plot to steal Pokémon. When they enter the relaxation room, they see it empty. Ash, Iris and Cilan go through the vent, while Meowth meets with Jessie and James. Dr. Zager stops all the trains, while Ingo and Emmet are terrified someone hacked into the system. The heroes encounter Team Rocket and the haunted train. The truth is revealed; Meowth was lying about being fired from Team Rocket and was traveling with the twerps to earn their trust, so Team Rocket could steal their Pokémon. Jessie sends Woobat, who uses Air Slash., to distract them as Team Rocket rides the train.
   
They get aboard the cart and start the engine. They are near the haunted train, so Ash jumps, but the train is revealed to be fake! The cart crashes, so Cilan reports the damage. Ingo and Emmet see the dot on the underground map, but at the center, more dots appear! Team Rocket must've made more fake trains, as the inflatable ones are reproduced from the original.
+
Ingo and Emmet see this is Team Rocket's plot. They tell even with the trains stopped, Team Rocket can still continue through the connecting lines to get away. They know Team Rocket cannot go directly, though they cannot see them on the map. On the map, the Bosses see they have to go through a central point, allowing them to set an ambush. The heroes want to take a cart to rescue the Pokémon, which the Bosses will allow. They get aboard the cart and start the engine, while the Bosses try to fix the system. After a while, the heroes reach the point and encounter the train. Ash jumps, but the train collapses and explodes in a smoke, causing the cart to crash. Ingo and Emmet managed to fix the system, so Cilan reports they crashed and Team Rocket used a decoy trains. The Team Rocket train passes by, though the Bosses have them locked. However, more dots appear on the map, so they see Team Rocket is using more decoy trains, but cannot determine which is the correct one.
 
The rest of the event follows in [[BW050: Battle For The Underground!|next episode]].

The heroes has arrived to Nimbasa City. Cilan checks that many trainers come to participate in many battles, which is why Nimbasa City has many facilities around. Meowth tells them he needs to go to the Pokémon Center, for he is exhausted. Ash wants to go to the Gym right away, but Iris hears his stomach grumbling, thinking he should also get a meal. Cilan leads them to the Subway, for this is the only means of transport in Nimbasa City. Iris thinks he is a little kid to love trains, but Cilan replies he is a Metro Connoiseur. Cilan admires the trains, but Ash thinks it is an ordinary cart. Cilan explains that is a double train, the first mass-produced train to contain small number of machine parts, for it can travel faster and is less expensive to manufacture. As Cilan continues to ramble, Meowth pulls him away, for they all are hungry.
