While heading to Olivine City, Ash and Co. take another break near a power generator. After a bit of wandering, however, Ash and Chikorita are trapped in the generator building. To make matters worse, they are trapped with Jessie, James, and Meowth, and some territorial Electric-typePokémon. How will Ash get out of this situation?
When Chikorita gets hit by Electabuzz's ThunderPunch, Ash catches it and says, "I think I'm a pretty good shortstop". This may be a reference to Casey, who once had a Chikorita (that had since evolved into Bayleef), and whose favorite baseball team was the Electabuzz.
The lines on Meowth's charm disappear for a moment right after Ash saves Chikorita from Magneton's attack.
During the part where Ash was being attacked by Victreebel and Arbok, some scenes depicting Victreebel using Vine Whip on Ash were cut.
