Julie had a herd of Numel, from which one got separated. The heroes, who just came through a cave, encountered one sleeping Numel, with whom Skitty wanted to play. The Numel woke up and was joined by another Numel, who started eating berries. Julie had her Furret regroup the Numel and take them to her field. Julie was to give them some food, but Max and Brock decided to do that. During the night, Team Rocket started stealing the Numel and placed them in their machine. May and Skitty came after Team Rocket and, by accident, were captured as well. Skitty, who tried tackling the wall, bumped into one of the Numel, who woke itself and others up. The Numel started tackling the machine, but Meowth had some water sprinkled on the Numel, which made them sleepy. One of the Numel tried tackling the machine, but failed. Instead, after some tries, Skitty, through Assist, used Ember, which powered the Numel up. That Numel used Flamethrower, which woke others up and made them using Flamethrower, which burned out the machine and let everyone escape. In the end, after Team Rocket got blasted off, one of the Numel ran off to eat berries, since it was getting hungry.
