Jessie, James and Meowth ponder what sort of punishment Giovanni can give them, as Meowth gives them the stellar idea of leaving Team Rocket. As they renounce their allegiance to Team Rocket, Giovanni's base is consumed in a huge explosion, as Mewtwo emerges from the blast. Jessie and James wonder who that was, and assume that Giovanni died in the destruction of the base. However, he emerges unscathed and enters a helicopter with his Persian. Team Rocket are motivated at Giovanni's persistence, and renew their careers in stealing Pokémon. Ash, Misty and Brock meet [[Professor Oak]] at his lab, but are less enthusiastic to see that Gary already arrived before them.

Professor Oak divulges his pride in both Gary and Ash as his protégé. He reveals that the other two budding Trainers did not have the skill sufficient to progress.

Meanwhile, Jessie and James, posing as news reporters, inquire of Ash's whereabouts. They are then thrown out of the house by Mimey. Gary exposes the flaws in Ash's battling strategy, and it is revealed that Ash has seen more Pokémon than Gary, but Gary has captured more Pokémon.

Showdown at the Po-ké Corral (Japanese: ライバルたいけつ!オーキドけんきゅうじょ Duelling with the Rival! Oak's Laboratory) is the 67th episode of Pokémon: Indigo League season.

SynopsisEdit

Back at Pallet Town, Ash decides to go to Prof. Oak, where he spots Oak's grandson and his rival, Gary. While Gary annoys Ash, Oak describes what Pokémon are really about and what is their role. As he also explaines what is the Pokémon League, Team Rocket attempt to get Pikachu, as their boss' greatest Pokémon escaped.

Episode PlotEdit

As Ash is center stage at the Pokémon League, he confidently tosses a Poké Ball into the air. However, it returns to him, proceeding to suck him inside of it. Ash snaps out from his dream, as he removes a vacuum cleaner off his face. He notices Mimey cleaning his room, seemingly impervious to what he has done. However, Mimey attaches the cleaner to his face once more, to Ash's surprise. He then heads downstairs for breakfast, relaying the events surrounding his awakening. Meanwhile, Team Rocket walk dejectedly through a forest to report back to Giovanni, as Meowth proclaims that they suffer from CFS: Complete Failure's Syndrome.

Jessie, James and Meowth ponder what sort of punishment Giovanni can give them, as Meowth gives them the stellar idea of leaving Team Rocket. As they renounce their allegiance to Team Rocket, Giovanni's base is consumed in a huge explosion, as Mewtwo emerges from the blast. Jessie and James wonder who that was, and assume that Giovanni died in the destruction of the base. However, he emerges unscathed and enters a helicopter with his Persian. Team Rocket are motivated at Giovanni's persistence, and renew their careers in stealing Pokémon. Ash, Misty and Brock meet Professor Oak at his lab, but are less enthusiastic to see that Gary already arrived before them.

Professor Oak divulges his pride in both Gary and Ash as his protégé. He reveals that the other two budding Trainers did not have the skill sufficient to progress. Professor Oak expresses a strong belief both Trainers are ready to face the Pokémon League. Ash asks Oak where the League is being held, to which he explains it is being held atop Indigo Plateau in two months time. Ash and Gary bicker over who is the stronger trainer. Meanwhile, Jessie and James, posing as news reporters, inquire of Ash's whereabouts. They are then thrown out of the house by Mimey. Gary exposes the flaws in Ash's battling strategy, and it is revealed that Ash has seen more Pokémon than Gary, but Gary has captured more Pokémon.

Whilst checking Ash's Poké Ball cache in the storage, the majority of Pokémon he captured were Tauros from the Safari Zone. On the way to Professor Oak's laboratory, Team Rocket accidentally provoke a group of angry Kakuna and Beedrill into chasing them. However, they are stopped in their tracks by an immense Snorlax blocking the path as the Beedrill close in on them. When they walk across a field, they see a Doduo elonging to Gary.

But before they can begin, they are alerted to an explosion at the Electric Pokémon Preserve.
