==Episode Plot==
  +
Ash thanks Tauros and goes to give it back to Oak. Oak, meanwhile, has Heracross on his back, having a lot of fun. Oak tells he learns a lot of stuff from it and asks of Ash to have it a bit longer, so Ash agrees with that. Ash tells Heracross to listen what Oak tells it and sends Tauros back to Prof. Oak. Oak receives Tauros and logs out. Misty tells Ash his Pokémon have completed their training, so Ash thanks Nurse Joy for that. Brock flirts with her, asking for an examination, but Joy goes away, telling she needs to check Pokémon for the Fire and Rescue Grand Prix. The heroes see an advertisement of the contest, seeing a lot of Water Pokémon dousing fire. Ash already wants to enter the Contest, but Misty warns him the only team he has for the contest is Squrtile. Ash tells he has to borrow her Water Pokémon, making her annoyed, as he did not even ask. Psyduck comes out, making Ash honored it'll be on his team.
  +
  +
Suddenly, the heroes see Captain Aidan and his Team Wartortle squad. Brock admires how trained they are, but wonders what is Team Wartortle. Misty explaines that Squrtile and the Team Wartortle's leader worked together to save a child from a fire back in Orange Islands. Ash asks Aidan if Wartortle competed and is told they are Champions for several years. The heroes observe many Water-type Pokémon training and Misty does not believe Ash is approved to enter the Contest. Aidan clarified the officials Ash helped the firefighters and so was accepted to enter the contest. Brock sees it will be tough, as many teams built up together. Ash is not worried, as he has his own team. Suddenly, they notice friends of Ash's Squrtile, when they were a gang. Jenny tells the Squrtile they will have final preparations, but the Squrtile feel sad. Ash's Squrtile greets them, putting them in good mood. The heroes greet Officer Jenny, who remembers them, as they have gotten the Squrtile as the fire fighters of the town. Aidan meets Jenny, who sees his Team won the contest last year. The Squrtile admire Wartortle, but Ash's Squrtile is not impressed.
  +
  +
Team Rocket watch and plan to capture the Water Pokémon, planning to sell, give them to the boss and keep some for themselves. Jenny asks of Aidan if they could get some training with Wartortle, to which Aidan agrees to. At the target range, Wartortle leader manages to command the other Wartortle correctly to hit the targets. The Squrtile are not precise, so Ash's Squrtile stomps on their tails. The Squrtile are in pain, but manage to hit the target. With Ash's Squrtile in command, the Squrtile hit the targets. Both teams managed to hit all targets, making Aidan impressed by their team work, making the Squrtile proud. Ash acknowledges his Squrtile is still their leader. At the arena, two model houses are burning, so Ash readies his team. Ash's Squrtile and Misty's Staryu use Water Gun and Ash's Pikachu sweeps the sand to douse the fire. Psyduck comes in the way and Staryu accidentally uses Water Gun on it, pushing it into the house. However, Squrtile comes and gets Psyduck out of it, with Staryu washing it with Water Gun. The Muk use their bodies to douse the fire and win.
  +
  +
Next is Psyduck vs. Squrtile. Aidan worries the Squrtile are too stressed out and have their concentration lowered for that. The model houses are set on fire, so the Psyduck team begins to extinguish fires. However, Squrtile are too nervous to act, even trip over each other. Squrtile use Water Gun, but the fire does not extinguish, unlike the Psyduck do. They don't hear Jenny's commands, so Pikachu uses Thundershock to get their attention. Ash warns them they'll lose if they do not obey their leader, Squrtile. Ash's Squrtile commands them, so they effectively douse the fire. The Squrtile squad extinguish the fire and win. Jenny sees Ash's Squrtile is aborn leader. Suddenly, the model house the Squrtile just doused lits again, as Team Rocket emerge in their robot. They blsat out fire to distract Ash, Jenny and the Squrtile, so Aidan and Team Wartortle appear. Wartortle use Water Gun, dousing the fire. Team Rocket turn the heat up and as the other Pokémon appear to douse the fire, they send nets to capture them all. Ash goes to free Pikachu, but Jenny takes him away, as the fire burns away.
  +
  +
Ash tells his Squrtile that his team needs to douse the fire, with right commands. Squrtile join hands and out their sunglasses on, ready for some fire fighting. They cool down Team Rocket's machine, then evade its attacks. The robot falls down and Squrtile uses Skull Bash to enter, then use Water Gun to punish Team Rocket, destroying their controls. The Pokémon emerge out of the robot, though Team Rocket is ready to fight. Pikachu's Thunderbolt and Ash's Squrtile's Water Gun cause the robot to blow and Team Rocket to be blasted off from it. After that, Ash tells Squrtile its team needs it and seeing the other Squrtile, Ash's Squrtile accepts the task. After some tasks, Squrtile and Team Wartortle face each other. They start dousing the fire, with their leaders coming in to save dummy hostages. Both teams extinguish the fire and since it took less time for Squrtile to douse the fire, they win. Aidan sees their teamwork skills are impressive and congratulates them.
  +
  +
Ash congratulates them as well, while Jenny thanks him for allowing his Squrtile to rejoin its friends. Squrtile bids farwell and shakes Bulbasaur's vines. Ash tells Squrtile they will be friends, no matter what and bids him farewell. Ash remembers his times with Squrtile, as he sees Squrtile departing away with its friends in Jenny's motorcycle.
