They hear Aipom crying and rush to find Aipom, spotting the Pokémon atop a precipice, trying to balance on a flat rock. They don’t realize that it is Ash's Aipom and when Jessie sees Aipom cry she decides to save Aipom. She uses a log to form a bridge to the isolated rock. She walks across the log, seemingly calm and balanced. She gets close and grabs Aipom, but ends up jumping onto the rock Aipom was trying to get off. Ash’s hat comes lose and flies with the wind back to Ash. Ash retrieves it but hears Aipom cry, prompting them to rush to the location. Jessie holds Aipom, trying to balance on the rock. Ash and his friends arrive and notice the situation as Jessie and Aipom lose their balance, sliding down the cliff similar to [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/snowboarding snowboarding]. The two fly in the air and land on the grass, Aipom landing safely but Jessie crashing face-first. Aipom hugs up to Jessie as Ash and his friends approach. [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Team_Rocket_trio Team Rocket] finds out Aipom is Ash’s and Ash reluctantly thanks Jessie for saving Aipom.

==Episode Plot==
  +
As Ash trains with his Pikachu for the next Gym battle, Aipom steals Ash's hat. Dawn sees an advert where the village will have a Contest. Brock thinks it would be a good idea to enter it. Aipom taunts Ash, so he goes to get her. Jessie sees the advert as well and wants to enter the Contest. Jessie tells James she will need Carnivine again. James thinks it is a bad idea and Jessie thinks what Pokémon should she use. Just then they see Aipom stuck on a rock. Jessie is dazzled by her eyes and gives help by giving a log so she can walk away. Jessie gets it, but loses her stability and ends up on the rock. Aipom drops Ash's hat and Ash gets it, then sees Team Rocket.
   
In the village, several stands are set up as Brock notices all of them, despite the contest not being official. Dawn signs up successfully as they notice Ash spying on Jessie training with Aipom. Aipom shows off [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Focus_Punch_(move) Focus Punch] and [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Double_Team_(move) Double Team] to catch the food falling out of the tree and forming a pile in front of Jessie. Brock believes that Aipom won't show all of its [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Move abilities] to Jessie, but Aipom shows off [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Swift_(move) Swift] as well. Ash gets nervous at that she will win the contest, which also affects Dawn.

Aipom and Jessie fall down a hole, then get up and land on the cliff where the others are. Aipom is grateful for rescue and Ash (nervously) thanks them. Jessie wants a reward and plans to use Aipom in the Contest she and Dawn will compete in. Ash does not give up Aipom to her, but after being persuaded, he allows it, but only when the Contest is over. Dawn and Brock see the festival, while Ash spies on Team Rocket, worried about Aipom a lot. Jessie trains with Aipom - she uses Focus Punch, then Double Team to gather nuts. Aipom shows Jessie Swift and she is satisfied. Ash thinks they will win the Contest and Dawn is afraid he might be right about that.
   
The contest starts, as the local [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Nurse_Joy Nurse Joy] and the village chief will judge, revealing the prize of a year's worth of fruit. Dawn takes the stage first with Pachirisu. Dawn calls for [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Sweet_Kiss_(move) Sweet Kiss], but Pachirisu suffers from stage fright since it is Pachirisu’s first. Dawn reassures her Pokémon and calls for the move again, this time Pachirisu performing, catching the crowd's attention. She calls for [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Spark_(move) Spark], creating flower shapes with the attack. She finishes with [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Discharge_(move) Discharge], but it unfortunately attacks everyone in the audience. Afterward, Ash and Brock congratulate Dawn for her performance even though she is less confident. Other [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_Coordinator Coordinators] perform, most of them with lackluster results. Jessie performs last in the [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Appeals_round Appeals round] with Aipom. Aipom uses Swift and follows with Focus Punch to smash the Swift into dust, gaining a powerful appeal. Ash watches with awe as Aipom uses Double Team to dance and uses a combined Swift to create a cyclone. Aipom hugs Jessie and Ash is shocked, believing that Aipom might leave Ash. He has an image of Aipom leaving him, which result in him acting it out in reality.
+
The Contest is about to begin. Since it is unofficial, Nurse Joy presents a year supply of fruit. First is Dawn, who sends Pachirisu. Pachirisu does not want to use Swift Kiss, but Dawn convinces it, as it is its first Contest, so it uses. Pachirisu uses Spark and follows with Discharge, but the latter shocks the audience... literally! Later, Brock and Ash think Dawn is already in advantage. After some performances, next is Jessie. She sends Aipom, who starts with Swift. Then, she uses Focus Punch to mess the stars, making glitter around the field. Aipom follows with Double Team and dances, then spins using Swift. Jessie and Aipom are happy and Ash is troubled as Aipom might leave with Jessie...
   
After the round ends, Dawn and Jessie make it to the second round. Brock notices that Ash is angry with Aipom for doing so well. The [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_battle battle] starts with Aipom against Pachirisu. Pachirisu uses Spark, but Aipom uses Double Team to dodge, following with a special combination of forming a circle with the Double Team clones and flying around like a Frisbee, which causes Dawn to lose points. Jessie gets cocky at doing so well, but Dawn mentions that Ash trained Aipom well, which is the only reason she is winning. Pachirisu tries to use Discharge, but Aipom's Swift attack counters it, creating a fireworks appeal and dropping Dawn’s points more. Aipom attacks with Focus Punch, [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Fainting knocking out] Pachirisu and netting Jessie the win.
+
The judge announces that Jessie and Dawn are the Contestants for the finale. Brock thinks Ash is concerned that Jessie and Aipom are successful. Jessie sends Aipom and Dawn Pachirisu. Pachirisu starts with Spark, but misses and Aipom uses Double Team. Aipom grabs the illusions' tail and spins. Dawn loses points and Jessie brags, though Dawn reminds her Aipom is powerful because of Ash. Pachirisu uses Spark and is countered by Swift. Aipom uses Focus Punch and hits Pachirisu, defeating it. Dawn is still happy, as this was practice for Floaroma Town.
   
James shows up in the [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Team_Rocket%27s_mechas#Meowth_Hot_Air_Balloon Meowth balloon] and Jessie climbs in as they recite their [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Team_Rocket_mottos motto]. They grab the fruit with a net and leave, thinking they stole it, but they actually won it. Aipom watches the balloon leave and jumps off Ash’s shoulder and goes after the balloon. Jessie notices and thinks that Aipom wants to go with her. As Aipom jumps onto the net, Ash believes that his nightmare came true and he looks down, wanting to cry. However, Pikachu points up as they notice that Aipom only wanted the fruit, eating several of the bananas and tossing the peels. Ash and his friends run after the balloon, but Ash trips on a banana peel. Meowth tries to grab Aipom with a mecha arm, but Ash calls for Focus Punch to break it. Aipom jumps off and Ash tries to catch Aipom, but slips on a banana. Still, he catches Aipom and both are happy. Team Rocket launches another mecha arm, but Aipom's Swift destroys the balloon and sends Team Rocket flying.
+
Jessie wins the fruit supply and climbs atop the balloon. Team Rocket think the heroes are afraid to attack, even if they did not steal anything. Aipom jumps to the balloon and Ash thinks she wants to be with them, but it turns out she is eating the fruit. Meowth uses the robot arm to grab her, but Aipom uses Focus Punch to destroy the arm. Meowth releases a second arm to get Pikachu, but Aipom uses Swift to blast them off. Later, Ash is relieved to have Aipom back. Ash thinks she likes Gym battles more than Contest battles, but gets his hat stolen again.
   
Ash scolds Aipom for being wild, but Brock gets Ash to let it go since Aipom wants to be with Ash, the Pokémon jumping on his shoulder. Dawn also notices that Aipom has a love for Contests, but Ash believes that Aipom likes Gyms more and Aipom takes his hat again and runs around, Ash pursuing.
