Episode Plot

After foiling another Team Rocket plan and passing through Twist Mountain, Ash and co. stop off for the night at Don George's Pokémon Battle Club in Astilbe Town. At the battle club, Tepig walks up to its former trainer, a boy named Shamus. He is the previous owner of Ash's Tepig due to Shamus's abandoning Tepig because he believed that it had no talent for battles when it lost to a Deerling but he never cares when he lied. When Ash went to get Tepig, Shamus said that he was glad to give up such a little runt of a Pokémon for its little talent as he finds another Tepig with a little less talent, which enraged Ash after he put two and two together. So Ash is challenged to a Double Battle against Shamus's Emboar and Heatmor:"The Fire Warriors" to prove how useless Tepig is. Can Tepig really prove that his talents are worth anything?





  • In the flashback, it is revealed that Shamus replaced his own Tepig in Accumula Town for another one, then left. How he got the second one is unknown.
  • This episode has the same general plot as Charmander - The Stray Pokémon.
  • Who's that Pokémon?: Heatmor (US).
