To take a shortcut, the heroes need to cross the bridge. Since they have no bikes to ride them, they go to a [[Pokémon Center]]. While [[Nurse Joy]] lends them the bikes to get medicine to an injured [[Shellder]] at [[Sunny Town]], a mysterious group of bikers appear that block their path. Worse, [[Team Rocket]] asks their friends, [[Tyra]] and [[Chopper]], to get the heroes' Pokémon. Though [[Officer Jenny]] disperses them, a storm arrives, so Ash, Misty and Brock have to ride through the storm...
   
Just leaving the [[Safari Zone]], [[Ash]], [[Misty (Anime)|Misty]], and [[Brock (anime)|Brock]] comes across a bridge which could be used as a shortcut to Sunny Town. They are about to walk across it when a guard, [[Norman]], tells them that the bridge is open only to bikes. Misty complains that if Ash hadn't wrecked her bike, they could go across the bridge. Ash and his friends go to the Pokémon Center to think of a plan to get a bike. Nurse Joy is very worried and Brock asks her what's wrong. Nurse Joy says she's worried about a sick Pokémon in Sunny Town. The Nurse Joy in Sunny Town asked Nurse Joy to deliver some medicine to Sunny Town, but Nurse Joy is too busy to deliver it. Ash and his friends volunteer to deliver the medicine, but they don't have bikes. Nurse Joy lends them some bikes that the Pokémon Center owns. Soon, Ash and his friends are racing across the bridge to Sunny Town.

They are about to walk across it when a guard, [[Norman]], tells them that the bridge is not finished. Ash asks him if they can walk but he says that the bridge is over ten miles long and it will get dark by the time they got there. He also says that the road is not finished but the bicycle path is and if they had bikes they could cross as well. Misty complains that if Ash hadn't wrecked her bike, they could go across the bridge. Ash and his friends go to the Pokémon Center to think of a plan to get a bike. Nurse Joy is very worried and Brock asks her what's wrong. Nurse Joy says she's worried about a sick Pokémon in Sunny Town. The Nurse Joy in Sunny Town asked Nurse Joy to deliver some medicine to Sunny Town, but Nurse Joy is too busy to deliver it.

A bike gang approaches Ash and his friends. They try to escape, but they are surrounded. Chopper, the leader of the gang, says that they want an introduction. Ash, Misty and Brock introduce themselves and run off. Then A female biker, Tyra, exclaims that "introduction" means Pokémon Battle. Brock couldn't resist flirting with her and he not only gets slapped, he gets rejected. Ash accepts and sends out Bulbasaur and Chopper sends out Golem. Golem KOs Bulbasaur by using Tackle. Ash sends out Charmander and Charmander sets Golem on fire by using Flamethrower and Ember. When Golem uses Tackle, it begins rolling encased in flames. Everyone was scared to see the rolling ball of fire roll towards them and they run. Ash and Charmander couldn't help but laugh their heads off. Chopper recalls Golem, but the Poké Ball is very hot from Charmander's attacks.

When Psyduck appears, the bike gang start laughing at Psyduck, one of the bikers saying he'd never seen such a pathetic Pokémon. Misty tells it to use Tail Whip, so he pathetically starts approaching Cloyster, butt first, shaking its tail. Ash starts laughing, too. Psyduck's "attack" fails and it pricks its butt on Cloyster's spiky shell. As Psyduck jumps into the air, screaming, Tyra and the entire biker gang laugh harder.

While Nurse Joy lends them the bikes to get medicine to an injured Shellder at Sunny Town, a mysterious group of bikers appear that block their path.

Episode PlotEdit

Just leaving the Safari Zone, Ash, Misty, and Brock comes across a bridge which could be used as a shortcut to Sunny Town. They are about to walk across it when a guard, Norman, tells them that the bridge is not finished. Ash asks him if they can walk but he says that the bridge is over ten miles long and it will get dark by the time they got there. He also says that the road is not finished but the bicycle path is and if they had bikes they could cross as well. Misty complains that if Ash hadn't wrecked her bike, they could go across the bridge. Ash and his friends go to the Pokémon Center to think of a plan to get a bike. Nurse Joy is very worried and Brock asks her what's wrong. Nurse Joy says she's worried about a sick Pokémon in Sunny Town. The Nurse Joy in Sunny Town asked Nurse Joy to deliver some medicine to Sunny Town, but Nurse Joy is too busy to deliver it. Ash and his friends volunteer to deliver the medicine, but they don't have bikes. Nurse Joy lends them some bikes that the Pokémon Center owns. Soon, Ash and his friends are racing across the bridge to Sunny Town.

A bike gang approaches Ash and his friends. They try to escape, but they are surrounded. Chopper, the leader of the gang, says that they want an introduction. Ash, Misty and Brock introduce themselves and run off. Then A female biker, Tyra, exclaims that "introduction" means Pokémon Battle. Brock couldn't resist flirting with her and he not only gets slapped, he gets rejected. Ash accepts and sends out Bulbasaur and Chopper sends out Golem. Golem KOs Bulbasaur by using Tackle. Ash sends out Charmander and Charmander sets Golem on fire by using Flamethrower and Ember. When Golem uses Tackle, it begins rolling encased in flames. Everyone was scared to see the rolling ball of fire roll towards them and they run. Ash and Charmander couldn't help but laugh their heads off. Chopper recalls Golem, but the Poké Ball is very hot from Charmander's attacks, and Chopper starts yelping while tossing the Poke Ball in his hands like a hot potato.

The lieutenant of the bike gang, Tyra, challenges Misty to a battle. Misty agrees and Tyra sends out Cloyster. Misty tries to sends out Starmie, but Psyduck pops out. Misty at first is outraged and tells the duck Pokémon she wanted Starmie, but then reluctantly decides to give Psyduck a chance.
