After a long and arduous journey, Ash and co. finally arrive at Olivine City where Ash hopes to get his next Gym Battle. He meets the local Gym Leader, a girl by the name of Jasmine. The Battle begins with her Onix against Ash's Totodile. Despite the type advantage Totodile's Water Gun has no effect on Onix and was defeated. Pikachu was next but just as the battle began, another girl stops and cancels the battle. This girl is the real Jasmine and she reveals the "Jasmine" that Ash was battling was Janina, her apprentice. Jasmine asked Janina to see her in her office. Jasmine has a stern talking to with Janina about what she did and as punishment Janina had to spend time away from the Gym. Jasmine then apologized for Janina's behavior and declined Ash's request for a Gym Battle. Why won't Jasmine battle? And is Janina no longer Jasmine's apprentice?

Jasmine: "A Gym Battle must be fought with the leader of the Gym."
Ash: "Right! That's exactly what I'm doin'!"
Jasmine: "No you're not. I'm Jasmine."
Jasmine: "This young girl is one of my apprentices here and should certainly know better."
- "Ok, You need to spend some time alone with your Pokémon, away from the gym. Maybe then you'll begin to understand them better."
- "I'm very sorry, but as long as little Sparkle is not felling well I can't make a promise."

Janina: "You're welcome Miss Jasmine."
Jasmine: "You and your Onix worked so beautifully together. You're finally learning how to communicate with your Onix really well and I'm extremely proud of you."
Janina: "But am I still expelled Miss Jasmine?"
Jasmine: "Expelled? What are you talking about? I never said you were expelled."
Janina: "Then I'm allowed to go back to the Gym?"
Jasmine: "(giggles) Of course."
Janina: "Oh thank you."
