Being tasked to get some flowers for her mom, Ash and his friends go to a local greenhouse, where they meet Florinda.

Team Rocket take Pikachu, so Florinda's Gloom has to battle them.

Ash and Pikachu are sleeping soundly in [[Pallet Town]], but are disturbed by Mimey's cleaning, leading to Ash's accidental electrocution at the hands of Pikachu. Misty is awoken by this. As Ash sits down to breakfast, his mother asks whether he can assist her with the housework since he is taking a break from training. Ash and his friends quickly leave the vicinity, as Ash states that he would rather go mountain hiking than endure the arduous task of chores. In the process of running from Ash's mother, the group arrive at a greenhouse, the Xanadu Nursery. Brock notices a beautiful girl walking amongst the greenery, but the others are unable to see her.

They are approached by one of the attendants, and are shocked to discover he is carrying a flamethrower. However, it is revealed to be just an ordinary garden hose. He introduces himself as Potter, and is surprised that Ash is taking the Pokémon League challenge. Potter states that he always dreamed of being a Pokémon Trainer, explaining that a lot of Grass-type Pokémon Trainers visit because of the greenery. Ash releases his Bulbasaur, as they run around the greenhouse. Brock inquires of the girl he saw, to which Potter explains he must have seen Florinda. As Bulbasaur sniffs a plant, it begins to totter around aimlessly. As Ash attempts to do the same, Florinda warns him that the plant causes paralysis.

A Gloom carries Bulbasaur back to the house, whereupon it cures Bulbasaur through its natural antidote to the Stun Stem. Florinda explains her difficulties in training her Pokémon to Brock, and that she is expected to continue the family business of running the Xanadu Nursery. Potter tells them that Florinda even tried evolving her Gloom with a Leaf Stone, to no avail. Professor Oak arrives at the Nursery, proclaiming that the Leaf Stone is not real. Oak explains that there has been a recent spate of fake evolutionary stones being sold to Trainers, so he undertook an investigation of the matter. Ash and his friends instantly single out Team Rocket as the perpetrators behind the scheme.

Team Rocket wander around the greenhouse, searching for rare Pokémon to steal. They arrive at the Stun Stem, believing that it will grant them success if they give it to Giovanni. Florinda breaks down into tears, genuinely convinced that she is a failure. An alarm is tripped inside the greenhouse, alerting Potter and the others to Team Rocket's presence. As Florinda fails to reason with Team Rocket, Ash uses his Bulbasaur to tie up Jessie and James. However, Meowth releases a bomb made out of the pollen from the Stun Stem, causing all of them to collapse in paralysis. Team Rocket break free of their bonds, taking Pikachu with them. Brock persuades Florinda to use her Gloom to fight against Team Rocket.

Make Room For Gloom (Japanese: しょくぶつえんのクサイハナ Gloom of the Botanical Garden) is the 68th episode of the Indigo League season.

SynopsisEdit

Being tasked to get some flowers for her mom, Ash and his friends go to a local greenhouse, where they meet Florinda. Florinda thinks that she does not have the skill to run the greenhouse, as her Gloom is not very powerful. The heroes find Team Rocket stealing the flowers, so Ash's Bulbasaur steps in to attack them. However, Meowth throws a herb that paralyzes everyone but Florinda and Gloom. Team Rocket take Pikachu, so Florinda's Gloom has to battle them.

Episode PlotEdit

Ash and Pikachu are sleeping soundly in Pallet Town, but are disturbed by Mimey's cleaning, leading to Ash's accidental electrocution at the hands of Pikachu. Misty is awoken by this. As Ash sits down to breakfast, his mother asks whether he can assist her with the housework since he is taking a break from training. Ash and his friends quickly leave the vicinity, as Ash states that he would rather go mountain hiking than endure the arduous task of chores. In the process of running from Ash's mother, the group arrive at a greenhouse, the Xanadu Nursery. Brock notices a beautiful girl walking amongst the greenery, but the others are unable to see her.

They are approached by one of the attendants, and are shocked to discover he is carrying a flamethrower. However, it is revealed to be just an ordinary garden hose. He introduces himself as Potter, and is surprised that Ash is taking the Pokémon League challenge. Potter states that he always dreamed of being a Pokémon Trainer, explaining that a lot of Grass-type Pokémon Trainers visit because of the greenery. Ash releases his Bulbasaur, as they run around the greenhouse. Brock inquires of the girl he saw, to which Potter explains he must have seen Florinda. As Bulbasaur sniffs a plant, it begins to totter around aimlessly. As Ash attempts to do the same, Florinda warns him that the plant causes paralysis.

A Gloom carries Bulbasaur back to the house, whereupon it cures Bulbasaur through its natural antidote to the Stun Stem. Florinda explains her difficulties in training her Pokémon to Brock, and that she is expected to continue the family business of running the Xanadu Nursery. Potter tells them that Florinda even tried evolving her Gloom with a Leaf Stone, to no avail. Professor Oak arrives at the Nursery, proclaiming that the Leaf Stone is not real. Oak explains that there has been a recent spate of fake evolutionary stones being sold to Trainers, so he undertook an investigation of the matter. Ash and his friends instantly single out Team Rocket as the perpetrators behind the scheme.
