Being invited to Hollywood, the heroes go to see the premiere of the movie they made with Cleavon. Meanwhile, Meowth remembers his past and encounters his gang.

==Episode Plot==
 
==Episode Plot==
[[Ash]] and friends and his [[Delia Ketchum|Mom]] get invited to Hollywood for the premiere of the movie that was made in the previous episode. Although he worries they won’t let him go because he should be training, they were going to let him come anyway. Team Rocket decide that they are going to crash the party. Meowth remembers his life many years ago. He was starved for food, and overall unliked by everyone. The night he was tied up in a tree, he saw a movie where a Meowth got an ice cream and some fried chicken. He decided he would go to Hollywood to get those things he needed so badly. Team Rocket hid on the bus to Hollywood that Ash and friends were taking. It leads to an abandoned street where they find the old movie theater. The director is there to greet Ash and the group. Jessie and James agree to wait outside the theater while Meowth goes to meet up with some of his old friends. On his way, he remembers some more things he went through a long time ago in this street. He’d break into the snack stand to steal a piece of chicken just to survive. But the guy caught him, and he had a frying pan thrown at him. Knocking him down without the chicken, he struggled into the alley to find many more [[Meowth]] who were lead by a [[Persian]]. They threw him a little food. They were his friends. Later, he met a female [[Team Rocket's Meowth|Meowth]] named [[Meowzie]] and immediately fell in love. But, she had no interest in a dirty old street Meowth and her owner came by to take her in her diamond covered Poké Ball. Meowth decided he should learn to talk and act human. So, he started by standing up straight. He was too slow, and the next time he was stealing some chicken the guy caught him and roughed him up. He started looking at a small group of people, and tried to say what they said. He got out a book and tried to learn to read and speak. Eventually, he could do it. Most impressed with himself, he proceeded back to [[Meowzie]] but was rejected again. This time because she thought he was a freak. Standing upright, and talking only made her like him less. He then vowed to become richer and better than she ever was, and joined [[Team Rocket]]. Back in the alley, Meowth meets his old friends,and the Persian tells him that he’d be useful back in the gang, as being able to talk would help them out. He decides to not stay, until he discovers [[Meowzie]]. She tells her story, that her trainer abandoned her on the road and she was forced to join the gang. Meowth then jumps out to defend her from the gang so he could take her with him in Team Rocket. Then, after wondering what took him so long, [[Jessie]] and [[James]] enter the scene and the Meowth gang scatters. [[Persian]] and [[Meowth]] decide to have a battle for who [[Meowzie]] gets to stay with. Meowth wins, but Meowzie decides to stay with Persian because she still thinks Meowth is a freak. Back in the theater, the movie just finishes. Misty complains that none of them are in it. Spielbug argues that through artistic license, he decided to cut out all parts with them. All those scenes ended up on the cutting room floor. Jessie and James burst in, and try to steal the show as usual. They fail as usual, too. Meowth, on the roof, is still upset about how [[Meowzie]] doesn’t like him as he stares at the moon. He wonders if [[Meowzie]] is staring, too.

In the morning, Ash, Pikachu and Brock train, though Misty thinks they are only seen with the TV remote. As Delia and Mimey tend the garden, the postman gives them a letter and they see the initiation for the premiere. Misty and Brock imagine themselves at Holywood, while Ash is depressed, as he needs to train for the League. Misty, Brock and Ash's mom remind him, so Ash is persuaded to go with them to the premiere. Elsewhere, Jessie and James think about going to Hollywood to become famous, while Meowth is skeptical, as he does not want to think about that place.
  +
  +
Meowth remembers that he was alone and hungry. When he saw people playing baseball, he attempted to eat the balls (since he imagined they were doughnuts), but knocked the can over and got tied to a tree by the players. He cried, but saw a movie on the same field, where it presented fried chicken and ice cream. Knowing that it was delicious, he freed himself and went to Hollywood. He remembers that he got on a truck and saw a light. In Hollywood, Ash, his mum, Brock and Misty imagine themselves in Hollywood, but see the reality, as it is a dump. They go to a theatre, from where Cleavon appears. Though Jessie and James spy on them, Meowth leaves them, telling them he needs to care of some "business".
  +
  +
He comes to a hot dog stand and remembers that he took some fried chicken from the restaurant and got chased. Coming into an alley, he spot some Meowth and a Persian. They gave him some fish, to which he accepted. Next day, the Meowth stole the fried chicken and his life in Hollywood got better, but he lacked love. Someday, he saw a beautiful female Meowth and fell in love. Carelessly, he crossed the street, causing a major car accident, but got out unhurt. He got to her, and while she didn't care much, her owner came and pounded him. The owner displayed to the female Meowth a Poké Ball decorated with diamonds, which the female Meowth loved. Meowzie, the female Meowth, told him he is not human or rich, but a street Meowth, then she was called back to her owner. He promised to become human enough to have her attention.
  +
  +
He came to ballet lessons and began walking on two feet. When he got the fried chicken, he was busted by the chef, which got him a new experience to crawl. Still, he did not give up and taught himself how to speak like a human. Time passed and he learned how to speak and was very happy about it since repeating: "''She sells seashells by the seashore.''" He retured to Meowzie and displayed her his progress, but Meowzie considered him a freak with no money, crushing the Meowth. Meowth promised to get rich, which is why he joined Team Rocket, but his dream did not come true. After the story, he encounters his old gang, the Meowth and the Persian. Jessie and James wait for Meowth to come and see him with the gang. They offer him to join back the gang. Though Meowth refuses, he soon sees Meowzie with them. Meowzie explains that her owner left her one day, as she ran out of money, but Persian came and offered her a spot in the gang, which she had to accept.
  +
  +
Upon hearing, Meowth decides to free her. The Persian and the other Meowth come to attack him, but Jessie and James appear and explain they are here to defend him, as they send Weezing and Arbok. Weezing's Smog chases Persian's Meowth away, leaving Persian. Meowth and Persian attack each other, and while Meowth got a scratch, Persian got defeated. Meowth goes to get Meowzie, but she goes to Persian. Meowth translates she is sticking with Persian, as he cared for her and considers Meowth as a freak. Meanwhile, the heroes saw the movie, but aren't impressed much, as they did not see themselves in it. Cleavon responds he had to cut them, as it is a movie about Pokémon and invited them since nobody else wanted to come. Team Rocket appear chanting, saying they only came to chant and disappear. Ash, Brock and Misty do not like this, as they say goodbye to their showbiz careers.

At the end, Meowth looks at the moon and wonders if Meowzie is looking to the moon as well, then lowers his head down.

Episode PlotEdit

In the morning, Ash, Pikachu and Brock train, though Misty thinks they are only seen with the TV remote. As Delia and Mimey tend the garden, the postman gives them a letter and they see the initiation for the premiere. Misty and Brock imagine themselves at Holywood, while Ash is depressed, as he needs to train for the League. Misty, Brock and Ash's mom remind him, so Ash is persuaded to go with them to the premiere.

Meowth remembers that he was alone and hungry.

He cried, but saw a movie on the same field, where it presented fried chicken and ice cream. Knowing that it was delicious, he freed himself and went to Hollywood. He remembers that he got on a truck and saw a light. In Hollywood, Ash, his mum, Brock and Misty imagine themselves in Hollywood, but see the reality, as it is a dump.
