Ash and his friends arrive at Honey Island, a place that is known for making the special Honeymitsu honey gathered by the Pokémon on the island, even the Combee. Ash wins an all-you-can-eat buffet at a lottery, which offers over 150 different kinds of treats, but it turns out to be another one of Team Rocket's traps. While battling them, they accidentally cause a Beedrill swarm to appear and attack. In a rush to escape, everyone is split up into three groups; Ash, Iris and Cilan, Jessie and James, and Pikachu, Axew, Meowth and Oshawott. Will they be able to find each other?
As Ash and his friends start their Decolore Island cruise, there first Island they stop at is Honey Island. Porter tells them that the Island is world famous for their Ice Cream. They all say that they want to try it. As they get off the ship, Jessie and James are dressed up as Tourist Bureaucrats to trick Ash and his friends. They say that Ash has won 151 different deserts, an all you can eat buffet, and Honey Island honey. They then trick them into getting in a car in which they drive to an open field. Ash, Cilan, and Iris then fall into a hole, which Team Rocket reveals themselves. They capture Pikachu with a arm and Ash tells Oshawott to use Hydro Pump on them. Pikachu breaks free of the capsule; Jessie and James then send out Woobat and Yamask. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt and a giant explosion makes Kakuna fall out of a near by tree. They all start to evolve into Beedrill and attack everyone. Porter (On the ship) then remembers he forgot to tell Ash and his friends about the Beedrill swarms.
Ash and his friends now come to realize that they got seperated from Pikachu, Oshawott, and Axew when they were being chased by the Beedrill. Team Rocket also sees that they got separated from Meowth too. Meowth walks and sees Pikachu, Oshawott, and Axew laying on the ground. Meowth then thinks to himself that its the perfect chance to catch them all. He tells them that they are lost together and that its his fault, so he will help them get back to Ash and friends. Team Rocket then searches for a Meowth and sees him walking with the other Pokemon. Their balloon then hits a tree and angry Beedrill come out of it and attack them. Jessie and James then blast off. Ash, Cilan, and Iris then search for the Pokemon and then get attacked by an Ursaring.
The Pokemon and Meowth now have to cross a river. Oshawott swims across the river not thinking about the others swimming over too. They all then ride over on a log, but the river current almost pushes them into a rock. Pikachu uses Iron Tail and Oshawott uses Hydro Pump to stop it. They are then shot at by Remoraid and Meowth almost falls in the river, but Axew saves him. Ash, Cilan, and Iris use Charizard and Dragonite to try and find the other Pokemon. They find Team Rocket and Ash, Cilan, and Iris start to argue with Jessie. Jessie orders Woobat to attack Charizard and Dragonite, but misses and they attack. There attacks miss and hit a nearby tree which causes the Beedrill to come out again. Axew then sticks his head into a Victreebel and Pikachu pulls him away, but it gets Meowth. Meowth is hit by its Stun Spore and is now sick. Pikachu, Axew, and Oshawott make medicine from herbs and give it to Meowth saving him. They then make it to the port and Team Rocket stops them, dressing up as Police Officers. They then go into the car, but Pikachu doesn't want to. Ash and his friends then run up to the car meeting back up with Pikachu, Oshawott, and Axew.
Cilan then starts to question the police stating that hes seen the car before. Iris says its looks like the car they rode in and Charizard uses Air Slash on the car revealing it is that car. Team Rocket then reveals themselves to the gang. Jessie and James send out their Pokemon attacking them. Jessie tells Meowth to go into battle too, but then doesn't feel right attacking them since they saved him. Dragonite and Charizard then finish Team Rocket off and they blast off again. Eventually Ash and his friends make it to the Pokemon Center and they try out all the honey deserts. As the journey continues.
