The Green, Green Grass Types of Home! (ヒヨクジム戦！ゲコガシラVSゴーゴート！！ Coumarine Gym Match! Frogadier VS Gogoat!!) is the 9th episode of Pokémon the Series: XY Kalos Quest.
In the Coumarine Showcase, Monsieur Pierre introduces Serena with Fennekin, who will perform. However, Serena trips over in front of the audience. This, however, was a dream, as Serena fell off the bed. She notices Ash is gone. Ash runs with Pikachu, training for his Gym Battle. Serena sees him and is inspired to do the same at her Showcase. Ash and Pikachu stop and gaze at the sunrise, knowing with this beautiful weather they will win. Later, the heroes are at the Gym, notifying it is a giant tree. They race up, making Serena and Clemont tired once they arrive. The heroes come to the battlefield, marking it is on the top of the tree. Ramos comes and Ash wants the Gym Battle. Ramos replies he came just in time and walks away.
They are at the table, where Ramos' assistant gives them tea. Ash would still like the Gym Battle, but Ramos replies he shouldn't rush, so they drink the tea. After drinking tea, Ash requests the battle, but Ramos asks of him since they are here, they can tend to the trees, causing Ash to fall down from that request. Ash is frustrated and begins to pull weed very fast. Ramos stops him, showing if he does not see properly, he will not see the important things, like the plant he may have pulled out. However, if he were to calm down and see properly, things would be different. Ash understands this, so Ramos accepts his challenge.
Ash tells Goomy to watch the battle, since it wants to be stronger. Ramos sends Jumpluff and Ash Fletchinder. Bonnie wishes Ash luck, as the battle starts. Fletchinder starts with Flame Charge, but Jumpluff protects itself using Cotton Guard. Jumpluff uses Sunny Day, while Fletchinder uses Steel Wing, but Jumpluff dodges, due to Chlorophyll ability. Fletchinder uses Flame Charge, but misses. Fletchinder repeats the attack, managing to hit Jumpluff and defeat it before it used Cotton Guard. Ramos calls Jumpluff back, praising Ash's skills, as he sends Weepinbell. Fletchinder uses Flame Charge, but Weepinbell dodges, so Clemont suspects it also has Chlorophyll ability. Fletchinder repeats the attack, but Weepinbell dodges and uses Poison Powder, which poisons Fletchinder.
Weepinbell uses Razor Leaf, hitting Fletchinder. Fletchinder uses Flame Charge, but Weepinbell dodges and slams it to the ground, defeating it. Ash calls it back and sends Hawlucha. Hawlucha starts with Flying Press, hitting Weepinbell. He uses High Jump Kick, but Weepinbell evades and poisons him with Poison Powder. Weepinbell uses Razor Leaf on Hawlucha, who can't move much, being poisoned. Hawlucha uses Flying Press, but Weepinbell's Grass Knot causes him to miss. He uses High Jump Kick, which hits Weepinbell, who slams him to the ground. Hawlucha is defeated, so Ash calls him back and sends Frogadier. Serena remembers Water-type Pokémon are weak against Grass ones, but Clemont feels Ash has a trick up his sleeve.
Frogadier uses Water Pulse, but misses, so follows with Double Team, surrounding Weepinbell. Weepinbell closes its eyes and hears out which is the real Frogadier, then uses Grass Knot, causing Frogadier to trip over. Frogadier uses Water Pulse against Razor Leaf, though Weepinbell uses Poison Powder. Using the frubble, Frogadier protects its mouth, so it does not inhale the powder. Frogadier uses Double Team, so Weepinbell closes its eyes and detects the real one and uses Grass Knot. However, Frogadier uses Aerial Ace, cutting through the knot and defeating Weepinbell. Ramos calls Weepinbell back and sends Gogoat. Frogadier starts with Water Pulse, but is countered by Vine Whip. Frogadier uses Double Team, though Gogoat's Vine Whip banishes them all and hits the real one.
Frogadier uses Aerial Ace, but Gogoat uses Razor Leaf to create a tornado. Frogadier cuts it, but Gogoat is missing. Gogoat comes down, as the Razor Leaf hits Frogadier. Frogadier uses Double Team, so Gogoat uses Leech Seed to banish the illusions. However, the real one uses Aerial Ace, cutting the Leech Seed's plant and hitting Gogoat. Gogoat, however, uses Horn Leech, attacking Frogadier and healing itself, followed with Leech Seed. Ramos replies he believes in his Pokémon, which is why this move worked. Ash has trust in his Pokémon as well, but is too frustrated. Pikachu reminds him he needs to focus on the battle, so Ash lets Frogadier know it will be all right.
Ramos acknowledges Ash is beginning to be fired up, but so does he. Gogoat uses Razor Leaf, which turns around Frogadier, who counters the attack using Aerial Ace. Ash remembers Ramos' words and tells Frogadier to ignore Razor Leaf and focus on finding Gogoat beyond the Razor Leaf. Frogadier uses Aerial Ace, managing to find Gogoat and hit it. It uses Double Team, so Gogoat uses Vine Whip to banish the illusions. However, the real Frogadier uses Water Pulse, which defeats Gogoat. Ramos praises his victory, but Ash replies he taught him to see the important things in front of him, which is why Double Team worked to distract Ramos. Ramos is pleased and gives Ash the Plant Badge. Ash's friends congratulate him on the victory, while Ash reminds Serena it is her turn to participate in the Showcase. Serena is pleased and cannot wait.
