==Plot==
 
Ash and his friends are busily helping Johanna prepare for the upcoming Twinleaf Festival. Izzy and Cara are worried that Professor Oak hasn't shown up yet. Ash offers to look for Professor Oak, so he, Dawn and Brock head off to look for him. Jessie, James and Meowth are watching from a bush. They dress James up as Professor Oak, hoping to be able to pass him off as the real one. Izzy and Cara take him off to Johanna to get ready for his speech about the relationship between Pokémon and evolutionary stones.
 
   
Meanwhile, Professor Oak is standing by while his assistant is replacing his tire on the car. Professor Oak sees a marsh ahead of him and wanders off to see what Pokémon are in it. His assistant tells him not to go to far, but he says that he is just going to look around.

==Episode Plot==
  +
The heroes are doing chores. Johanna tells they are done and announces the first event of the Festival will be held by Professor Oak. Ash offers to do some more chores, pleasing Johanna. Later, they all meet up with Izzy and Cara, who report Professor Oak has not yet arrived. Johanna worries the event might not be started, so the heroes go to investigate. Sayer goes to get the people he lent the fishing rods, who are hiding in the bushes. Jessie heard what happened and has an idea for James... as he gets dressed as Professor Oak. Cara and Izzy immediately see him and take him to report his lecture. Sayer appears, so Jessie and Meowth sneak out.
   
Ash, Brock and Dawn are running down the path and find the assistant without Professor Oak. The assistant tells them that Professor Oak is out in the marsh and the others go after him. Dawn warns that she has heard that the marsh is full of quicksand.
+
Johanna sees Professor Oak and comments that he looks much younger in person. The real Professor Oak had his car's tire popped. Oak goes to see some Pokémon in a nearby marsh and tells his driver he will be back soon, even if they are late. The gang comes and sees Professor Oak going in the marsh,. Dawn reports that there is a quicksand, which makes them ready to get him back. James goes to get out, but goes back, as he needs to speak about evolution and the stones. Professor Oak goes to see Pokémon and sees a Politoed, who calls some Quagsire, who drag Professor Oak away.
   
James is getting ready to begin a speech for all the kids out in the crowd. He tries to escape a couple times, but he is caught. Jessie and Meowth are worried that James is going to fluke.
+
The heroes yell to Professor Oak to greet him, but he does not turn away. Ash is surprised to see him being dragged by the Quagsire, so they go to him. James attempts to escape, but gets forced to give the lecture. Upon seeing the audience, James freezes. The gang goes to continue searching for Professor Oak, but Dawn reminds Ash and Brock the land is covered by quicksand. Still, Piplup goes to inspect for the area himself, but soon begins to be going into the quicksand. To help him, Dawn sends Buneary, who freezes him with Ice Beam. Pikachu bashes the ice and unfreezes Piplup. Dawn is annoyed with Piplup, who still goes, but Croagunk stops him, as he knows the way around. Croagunk walks and stops. Piplup still continues and falls in another quicksand, though Croagunk drags him out. Dawn advises to Piplup they should listen to Croagunk.
   
Professor Oak is walking through the marsh and sees a Poliwhirl. He makes up a poem about it and sees a Politoed walk out of the bushes. He goes over to look at it when two Quagsire walk up next to him. He also makes a poem about them. Ash and friends are walking up and waving when the Quagsire pick Professor Oak up and run off, following the Politoed, much to everyone's confusion. As they begin to head off again, Dawn reminds them that there is quicksand around there. Piplup takes the lead, but quickly sinks into quicksand. Dawn sends out Buneary to use Ice Beam to save Piplup. Croagunk then takes the lead and begins to walk. Suddenly he stops, but Piplup keeps walking and falls into quicksand again. Croagunk quickly throws him out of it. Croagunk leads them to a cave, out of which comes Politoed followed by two Quagsire. Politoed challenges Croagunk to a duel which Croagunk wins. They walk into the cave to find Professor Oak with a Lombre and two other Quagsire. Professor Oak tells them that Politoed just wanted him to come to give Lombre the Water Stone to get him out of the depression. Professor Oak breaks off a small piece of the Water Stone and gives it to Lombre, which evolves it into Ludicolo and makes it happy again.
+
James still does not know what to do, so Jessie and Meowth encourage him, as it could be an opportunity. So, James asks of the audience to lend the Poké Balls for the lecture, which they all do, making Jessie and Meowth pleased and impressed. Croagunk led the gang to a cave. Polidtoed and Quagsire come out. Pikachu goes to attack, but Croagunk stops him, as Politoed seems to want Croagunk to battle it. They jump and attack each other. After a moment, Politoed seems in pain, which means Croagunk won. Politoed stands up and wants everyone to follow it. Inside, they see Professor Oak, who is trying to cheer a Lombre up. Piplup greets Lombre, but it simply turns in another direction. Professor Oak thinks Politoed wants him to get Lombre cheered up. Dawn is amazed as how he knew what was Politoed saying, so Oak reveals her upon opening the heart, one can realize a lot what Pokémon try to say.
   
James walks out onto stage as his nerves begin to get to him and he won't say a word. Jessie and Meowth sneak over to the stage and tell James to think of this as a Team Rocket scheme to get tons of Pokémon. This encourages James and he begins to perform well. Meowth wishes they had thought of this sooner as James is able to collect all the Pokémon in the crowd. Ash, Dawn, and Brock then run in with Professor Oak behind them. Dawn says that James is not the real Professor Oak. James denies it and a young boy from the crowd walks up and says that the real Professor Oak would be able to help him with his Pokémon, and sends out a Tyranitar. Izzy and Cara push James up, but he is promptly blasted off by Tyranitar with Jessie and Meowth running after him. Professor Oak then walks up to Tyranitar and pulls a thorn out of its foot, making it happy. The boy is happy and everybody in the crowd cheers.
+
Oak shows them a Water Stone, which could make the Lombre evolve, which was to be shown for the lecture. He gives it to Politoed, who goes to Lombre. Upon seeing the Stone, Lombre touches it and evolves to Ludicolo, as its spirits rise up and dances with Politoed. Ash is impressed how oak dealt with the situation. Dawn sees time is late, so they all rush to get back to Twinleaf Town. When they come, they see *another* Professor Oak, one Dawn calls an imposter. James and Professor Oak argue who is the real one. A boy sends Tyranitar and asks of the Professor Oak-s to see what is wrong with it (as it does not listen to any commands), which should reveal who the real one is. James goes to Tyranitar, which causes the Tyranitar to attack him using its tail, making him blast off.
   
James is hanging from a tree while Jessie and Meowth are trying to figure out how to get him down. Their boss, Sayer, then walks up and James falls from the tree. He orders them back to work, much to their disappointment.
+
Professor Oak sees the Tyranitar and checks its foot and gets a wood splint out of the leg. Tyranitar is grateful for this, the boy glad for solving the problem and Johanna trusts that he is the real one. The heroes are glad everything turned out to be how it should. James is stuck on a tree and falls. Jessie and Meowth come to him and hearing Sayer scolding them, they put James a pair of glasses.
