On their way to Violet City, Ash and co. are lost in a giant forest. As luck would have it they meet up with Gary, who has a Hoothoot, a type of guide in the forest. Realizing they need one, Ash and Co. run into an old woman named Hagatha who loans them a Hoothoot who only likes pretty girls like Misty. With Hoothoot's help, can they get out of the forest, or be lost forever?
Brock has six fingers after recoiling from Hagatha's anger.
The "Who's that Pokémon?" in this episode is Bellossom.
