==Plot==
Ash and his friends stop in a large town, deciding to go to the local Pokémon Center. When they get there, Brock is strung out on Nurse Joy as usual before Croagunk pulls him away. Ash heads outside to train with Pikachu, but as Piplup follows, he runs into Pikachu and they both fall, Pikachu shocking Piplup out of reflex. Piplup gets angry and berates Pikachu. Suddenly, both Pokémon are overcome with attraction as they rush each other and embrace.
+
The gang came to a large town and decide to go to the Pokémon Center. In his instincts, Brock immediately flirts with Nurse Joy and Croagunk's instincts cause Brock to be hit by Poison Jab. They go out and suddenly, Piplup trips over Pikachu and gets accidentally electrocuted. Piplup is very angry, even if it was his fault and argues, while Pikachu apologises. Suddenly, Pikachu and Piplup begin to act strange, as they begin to hug each other. Meanwhile, Team Rocket are cleaning up a place of a scientist, who is quite angry at something that does not work. Throwing more papers, the scientist orders them to clean up the place. James and Meowth run away, making Jessie the only one available to clean up. Even so, Quagsire and Magnemite in the lab are angry at each other.
   
Right away, Ash and his friends know something is amiss as Piplup and Pikachu continue to hug. At a nearby building, a scientist works nonstop, the room strewn with research materials as he works on a generator. Team Rocket works on tidying the area, as they were hired by the professor, named Kodama, since they don't have a task. James and Meowth make up an excuse to leave the building, leaving Jessie to clean up the strewn paper notes. Nearby, a Magnemite and Quagsire stare angrily at each other.
+
Ash proposes to separate them. Dawn pulls Piplup and Ash his Pikachu and though hard, they separate them a bit, but Pikachu electrocutes everyone. Dawn calls Piplup back, making Pikachu to fall down. Even so, Piplup comes out of his Poké Ball, causing more hugs. Brock believes that they might be able to turn them around, as if they were magnets, so they would stop hugging. With some effort, Ash and Dawn pull them and turn them around. Unfortunately, they turn around and hug each other. They go to the Pokémon Center to see what to do, while James and Meowth saw this and go to spy on them.
   
Meanwhile, Ash and Dawn's efforts to talk to their Pokémon fail. Ash decides to try to pull them apart, so he and Dawn grab their Pokémon and struggle to pull them apart, but the two seem stuck together. Ash manages to pull Pikachu away by a little, but Pikachu suddenly shocks everyone. Piplup gets hurt too, but he recovers and they go back to hugging again. Brock suggests that Dawn should recall Piplup, so she brings him back into his Poké Ball. Pikachu falls over, his body still posed. Piplup comes out of his Poké Ball and the two return to hugging. Ash and Dawn try to separate them again, but this time Brock suggests to split them and face them away from each other, identifying it as the situation being similar to a magnet, suggesting that having them face away could create a repulsion. It appears to work at first, but they spin back around and hug again. They decide to go to Nurse Joy and as they head inside, Meowth and James notice and decide to watch.
+
Inside the Center, they see many trainers with their Pokémon reacting the same. Brock notices that each pair is composed of a Water-type and Electric-type Pokémon. Hearing this, James and Meowth return to the lab. Meowth asks Prof. Kodama if he is trying to separate them, but Kodama angrily responds he is trying to make them friendly, not hostile. Using the machine he constructed, he enables the most hostile enemies to become friends, but this does not work on Magnemite and Quagsire for some reason, though they have been enemies for a long time. They attack each other, causing Jessie and James to be electrocuted. He uses more power for the machine, and while it does not work on them, Pikachu and Piplu hug each other even more. Brock now knows someone is causing this to happen.
   
Inside the Center, they find out that other Pokémon have been affected just like Pikachu and Piplup. Brock notices that all the affected Pokémon are in a pair, with one Water type and one Electric type. Nurse Joy mentions that none of the other Pokémon in the center have been affected. Meowth listens in and concludes that Professor Kodama's experiment must be responsible, so he takes James back to the lab. When they return, they find the professor still hard at work. When Meowth asks the professor about his experiment, Kodama reveals that his invention is dubbed the Affinity-Enabler, which broadcasts a form of Attract over an antenna and causes Pokémon to cease any rivalry and become attracted, regardless of gender, but it seems to fail on his test subjects. It doesn't help that the two Pokémon have hated each other for some time. The two battle and cause destruction, but only Kodama's orders cause a ceasefire. Trying to help, he increases the machine's power, which causes the Pokémon at the Center to get even closer and hug more intently.
+
Meowth tells James and Jessie they could take the machine. Jessie asks why, so Meowth explaines that it could make Pikachu friendly with him, so they finally could take Pikachu and give it to the boss. Quagsire and Mangemite fight again, causing the lever to be pushed and the Pokémon at the Center are not *very* friendly. However, Kodoma pulls the lever, causing them to be in the same state once more. Brock hears some boys talking that it might be best to leave them this friendly, as their Pokémon did not go along well with each other. Brock suspects that whoever is causing this has also Pokémon that don't go along well. Nurse Joy remembers Professor Kodoma, who is working on such experiments.
   
Brock notices that the two types are opposites and that the situation cannot possibly be natural, being more forced. Kodama continues his work while Meowth suggests that they steal the machine based on what Meowth and James saw earlier. Meowth suggests that they could use it to make Pikachu friendly towards Meowth so they can present it to Giovanni. Another scuffle between Magnemite and Quagsire accidentally hits the machine's lever, shutting the machine off. The effects stop immediately at the Center, making the Pokémon go back to normal. However, Kodama pulls the switch again, reversing the effect. A nearby Trainer mentions that his Raichu never got along with the Squirtle it is attracted to now. Brock believes that the person creating the effect may have a similar situation with two Pokémon hating each other. Joy mentions Professor Kodama and that he has a lab nearby, wanting to make his Pokémon get along, everything clicking into place.
+
Coming into his lab, Ash and Dawn show Kodoma Piplup and Pikachu ae hugging each other. Kodoma is pleased by this result, but he still does not know why is it not affecting Quagsire and Magnemite. Team Rocket tell they need to relax as they work to get the problem solved. Meowth pulls the lever back and forth, causing Piplup and Pikachu to be normal and friendly. Jessie and James sneak out and Kodoma asks where are Team Rocket going, revealing who they are. They undisguse themselves and take the machine. Kodoma goes on the machine, while Team Rocket take Pikachu and Piplup, then go away. Quagsire launches Magnemite, so Kodoma rides it, while Magnemite electrocutes the machine. Brock thinks they had a bit of battle. The machine falls down and breaks, causing Piplup and Pikachu back to normal. Staraptor saves Piplup and Pikachu. As James and Jessie are about to send Carnivine and Seviper, they get blasted off by Thunderbolt and BubbleBeam.
   
Joy leads them to Kodama's lab as Ash informs him of the situation. Kodama knows that his experiment was indeed successful as he fills them in on his research. Jessie and James try to get Ash and his friends to leave before they break the disguise, Meowth playing with the machine to try to get their attention. However, Kodama spots them and unintentionally breaks their disguise. After reciting their motto, Meowth triggers their balloon and proceeds to steal the machine. Kodama grabs ahold as Team Rocket tries to escape with Ash and his friends in hot pursuit. Kodama hits the switch a couple of times on the machine, flickering the effects. Meowth grabs Pikachu and Piplup with a mecha arm. Quagsire and Magnemite show up and work together, Quagsire launching Magnemite to the balloon. Kodama rides on Magnemite as it shocks the machine, breaking the ropes and causing it to fall, breaking on impact and eliminating the effect. Quagsire uses Water Gun to break Kodama's fall and bring them to safety. It appears that Magnemite and Quagsire never really hated each other, but rather only wanted to use each other for battle training. Ash sends Staraptor to retrieve Pikachu and Piplup, bringing them to safety. Jessie and James prepare to battle, but Pikachu's Thunderbolt and Piplup's BubbleBeam send them blasting off before they can summon any Pokémon. Back at the Center, the Trainers happily leave, with their Pokémon in good shape. Brock mentions to Kodama that since Magnemite and Quagsire were dual-type Pokémon, the machine may not have worked. As Kodama prepares to return to his work, Ash and his friends set off.
+
Brock believes that the machine did not work on Quagsire and Magnemite as Quagsire is a Ground-type and Magnemite a Steel-type as well. Kodoma now knows that to do and waves goodbye (with Nurse Joy) to the heroes.

PlotEdit

The gang came to a large town and decide to go to the Pokémon Center. In his instincts, Brock immediately flirts with Nurse Joy and Croagunk's instincts cause Brock to be hit by Poison Jab. They go out and suddenly, Piplup trips over Pikachu and gets accidentally electrocuted. Piplup is very angry, even if it was his fault and argues, while Pikachu apologises. Suddenly, Pikachu and Piplup begin to act strange, as they begin to hug each other. Meanwhile, Team Rocket are cleaning up a place of a scientist, who is quite angry at something that does not work. Throwing more papers, the scientist orders them to clean up the place. James and Meowth run away, making Jessie the only one available to clean up.

Ash proposes to separate them. Dawn pulls Piplup and Ash his Pikachu and though hard, they separate them a bit, but Pikachu electrocutes everyone. Dawn calls Piplup back, making Pikachu to fall down. Even so, Piplup comes out of his Poké Ball, causing more hugs. Brock believes that they might be able to turn them around, as if they were magnets, so they would stop hugging. With some effort, Ash and Dawn pull them and turn them around. Unfortunately, they turn around and hug each other. They go to the Pokémon Center to see what to do, while James and Meowth saw this and go to spy on them.

TriviaEdit

  • This was the first episode after the release of HeartGold and SoulSilver to air in the United States.
  • The English dub title for this episode is based off the phrase: "Sticking with what you know."
  • This episode was aired in the USA letterboxed, which is 16:9 on a 4:3 screen, for standard-definition viewers. This is probably due to Cartoon Network stopping their cropping practices sometime after the initial dub airing of the previous episode, as other 16:9 shows on the network which had been cropped for standard-definition viewers, including some episodes of the Pokémon anime which had initially been presented cropped, switched to letterboxed presentation sometime during the week prior to this episode's initial dub airing.
  • The original English dub title was announced as Sticking With You Know Who! but was later changed.

ErrorsEdit

When Team Rocket blasts off, Wobbuffet's voice can be heard, although it is not outside of its Poké Ball.
