Since Brad had to hide from the girl crowd, he gave the heroes his Smoochum and went away. Brock put his hat on, causing the girls to be attracted to him, mistaking him to be Brad. Smoochum, Togepi and Pikachu followed a Skiploom bot, then got captured by Team Rocket. The heroes saved them and took Smoochum back to Brad. Brad had to go for a while, causing Vitzo to call the policemen (who were Team Rocket) to kick them out. Team Rocket captured them and took Smoochy, though Brad rescued them. Brad revealed to the crowd he liked Smoochum, causing the crowd to like him even more. However, they bought new Smoochum dolls.
