Summary
Aiming to enter the Unova League, Ash and his friends continue their journey to Nimbasa City where the next Gym is located.

Our exhausted heroes drag their tired bodies through a remote forest, heading towards Ash's next gym location. Ash complains about the heat and that if only it had rained, the coolness would really help. Iris stops and points towards the sky stating, "Southerly wind, which smells of water. It's about to rain" Ash and Cilan turn around questioning Iris's prediction, without a raincloud in sight. Ash laughs stating that the sun is shining so brightly that if it really rains, he will walk on his hands for the entire day. Iris continues pointing towards the sky shouting, "No, what will come will come!". The sound of thunder crackles through the sky causing Ash to stare in amazement. Lightning streaks across a darkened sky, bringing a downpour of rain atop Iris, Ash, and Cilan. Iris points up confirming her prediction. Cilan suggests they should take shelter somewhere, and the three begin racing down the drenched forest path.

Through the darkness, Iris manages to locate a mysterious structure in the distance. Dent states they should take shelter at the residence. Ash, Iris, and Dent finally reach the massive mansion previously noticed by Iris in the distance. The mansion appears to be in a maintained state. Ash begins banging on the front door while Cilan shouts if anyone is home. Ash continues knocking in an attempt to attract the mansion's owner. After a few moments, the front door opens without a soul in sight. Our heroes stare in a confused state, however take advantage of the situation and take cover in the mansion. Ash shouts if anyone is there. Dent shouts out that they should please let them take shelter from the rain for a while. Cilan suggests that no one is home. Meanwhile, Team Rocket has successfully setup communication and surveillance within the mansion prior to Ash's arrival, examining his every move. James complains that after they finally managed to find a perfect place for a hideout far from civilization, Ash manages to interrupt their operations. Meowth states that Ash arrived just shortly after they were able to successfully make communication with headquarters. The three sigh at the situation. James states that Ash continues to get in their way. Jessie suggests that they should take advantage of the situation, and capture Pikachu quickly. On the opposite side of the room, a group of four Litwick playfully dances with James's Yamask. James suggests that they should take advantage of the native Litwick in the mansion to scare away Ash. Meowth suggests that the Litwick will listen to Yamask's orders. James calls for Yamask, who floats over read to heed his command. James commands Yamask to tell the Litwick to get PIkachu and chase Ash out. Yamask floats over to the opposite side of the room and delivers the orders to the four Litwick.

Ash opens a door to an adjacent room to the main hallway asking if anyone is home. Iris states that it really looks like no one is home. Cilan suggests they should stay there until the rain stops and it would be fine to explain the situation afterwards. Our heroes sit down in the main hallway, waiting out the heavy rainfall. Iris announces it was just as she had predicted. Cilan compliments Iris on her instinct of the wilderness. Ash states that he will keep his previous promise (to walk on his hands for the entire day), bending over and flipping into a handstand. Iris states that Ash doesn't have to do such a thing and does such childish things. A window is forced open by the strong wind from the storm. Cilan steps over and reattaches the window latch, stating that everything will be fine. However, after a few moments, the latch reopens, and the windows flap against the wind. A nearby table begins shaking and after a moment, is thrown towards Iris and Ash who are seated on the mansion floor. Ash and Iris stare in a confused state, unsure how the table had moved by itself. Iris suggests that the mansion feels strange as if someone is watching them. Cilan suggests that it was just the wind. Iris questions Cilan if the wind can really move a huge table across the room. Ash and Cilan stare at Iris in a terrified state, at an object moving behind Iris. Iris questions why they both are looking at her like a Pidove that got hit by a Water Gun. Ash stutters, suggesting for Iris to look behind herself.

Iris rotates around and notices a statue comprised off an umbrella, lamp, and other household objects that are approaching them. The floating statue begins swinging the lamp at Iris, and the three begin racing around the mansion in an attempt to escape. Cilan suggests they should go outside however a giant dresser is thrown in front, blocking the entrance. Cilan shouts that they should find another exit. As Cilan examines the situation for an alternative exit, the floating statue quickly approaches and slams into the door, throwing Cilan, Ash, and Iris into the ground. The inanimate statue manages to fall to the ground beside Cilan, sending him screaming away in fear. Team Rocket continues examining the situation through their surveillance system. Jessie questions why the Litwick blocked the entrance when they were directed to chase everyone out of the mansion. Meowth suggests that the Litwick haven't understood their orders. Meowth stumbles off saying that he will go tell Yamask. Our heroes manage to escape into the dining hall and seat themselves at the gigantic table. Ash sighs, questioning what is wrong with the place. Cilan realizes that the table has been set. Iris suggests that maybe there is someone at the mansion after all. After a few moments, a small bell rings and Ash, Iris, and Cilan are levitated into the air. The three are thrown through the gigantic room and soon after, the dinnerware begins levitating at a high velocity towards our heroes, smashing into the mansion wall. The dining room doors open and Ash, Iris, and Cilan forcefully slam into the ground.

Ash stares up noticing a white glove, which appears as a person’s hand, only coming to realize that the costume, has no human body inside. The room is filled with many colorful women and men's attire. The haunted costumes begin throwing Dent, Iris, and Ash throughout the room. Soon after, Pikachu launches an attack, enveloping the room in electricity and returning the clothes to an inanimate state throwing Ash, Cilan, and Iris to the ground. A group of clothes begins rustling, and the group of Litwick attempt to escape the room, however are noticed by Ash. Ash shouts for the group to wait however they continue to rush out of the room. One Litwick manages to trip in its attempt to escape and slams into the ground. Ash rushes over, angrily demanding if it was the Litwick who were causing the disturbances. Ash queries his Zukan on Litwick's data: "Litwick, the Candle Pokémon. It appears in pitch-dark places and pretends to be a guide by lighting one's way…". The Zukan turns off halfway through the entry. Ash stares at the blank screen, having never encountered the problem before. Cilan states that Litwick is responsible for the strange events in the mansion and that he is sure it can use Psychic. Ash questions Litwick if it's trainer is the owner of the mansion. The three continue to question Litwick about its owner, however it just continues starting in a confused state. Ash states they haven't come to do anything bad. Iris contributes that they aren't burglars. Cilan states they had just thought they could rest there for a while during the storm.

Ash, Iris, and Cilan walk through a hallway, asking Litwick where it's friends are. Ash questions if Litwick is even able to understand what they are asking. Ash continues walking and is soon greeted by Yamask that has hidden all of its body except it's mask. Afterwards, Meowth and the remaining Litwick manage to walk down a hallway adjacent to Iris. Iris manages to notice Meowth walking through the nearby hallway. Ash shouts out, questioning Meowth about what he is doing with the Litwick. Meowth avoids the question and rushes down a nearby hallway with the group of Litwick. Ash turns around the corner, however the four are nowhere in sight. Cilan states he cannot believe that Team Rocket is in such a place. Ash states they must be plotting something and they should go and check. Meowth manages to successfully return to Team Rocket's hideout. Jessie lectures Meowth about being discovered. James questions Meowth if he is all right, because he appears to be thinner. Meowth responds that James does as well. James begins rubbing his face, unaware of his fatigued state as well. Jessie questions what is up with the two, looking so haggard. James states that Jessie also looks haggard as well. Meowth suggests that it is because they have been working without taking a break. Jessie states that they still have to get Pikachu and chase the others away as soon as possible, in order to preserve their secret base. James states that in order to be active in the Unova region, they must have a front line base. The three Litwick interrupt the trio, shouting "Litwick Litwick Litwick". James manages to realize that the Litwick flames are bigger than before. Jessie states that it is just his imagination. Jessie stares at Yamask, saying that it needs to tell the Litwick to continue chasing everyone away. Yamask delivers the orders and the group of Litwick grin in agreement.

Ash shouts out for Team Rocket to reveal themselves. Cilan demands to know where they are hiding. Iris shouts that if they are planning to do something bad, it won't work. A group of tables begin levitating, caused another Litwick. Litwick begins throwing the tables at Ash, Cilan and Iris. Ash commands for Litwick to stop because they are not its enemies. Litwick continues its barrage, forcing the room's chandeliers towards the ground. The three manage to escape the barrage of attacks and escape into an adjacent room. Cilan questions why the Litwick have been attacking them. After the attack, Iris realizes that Axew was lost during their escape. Ash questions Iris if Axew was running behind Pikachu as they were escaping. Iris begins shouting for Axew, however he is nowhere to be found. James discovers that Yamask has also disappeared. Meowth states that Yamask is away supervising the Litwick. Our heroes walk down a nearby mansion hallway, shouting out for Axew. Pikachu stares down an adjacent hallway, and is soon ambushed by Litwick. Ash turns around questioning where Pikachu had disappeared. Dent states that Pikachu had just been walking with them before. Iris suggests that Pikachu could have become separated as well. Iris suggests that Team Rocket may have a connection to the two Pokémon’s disappearance.

Team Rocket manage to successfully make contact with a professor, announcing that they have found the ideal place for a base in the Unova Region. The professor questions what kind of building it is. Team Rocket responds that it is a really big mansion including a kitchen, bathroom, elevator, walk-in closet, and even an army of Litwick. James states they are very obedient and nice Pokémon who listen to everything they say. The professor suggests they should be careful, because Litwick are said to absorb the life energy of Pokémon and humans. The professor continues stating that he has always wanted to analyze their abilities himself. James and Jessie come to the conclusion that their life energy has been absorbed the Litwick the entire time. James suggests it is the reason they look so haggard. James states that their situation is dire and they should escape. James soon realizes that Meowth has also disappeared. Jessie states that Meowth had went to check on the Litwick. Meowth manages to locate the Litwick and demands for them to continue chasing Ash. After a few moments, the Litwick uses Psychic and begins levitating Meowth into the air.

Our heroes continue their search for Axew and Pikachu, returning to the main entrance. Iris questions where they could have gone. Cilan states that earlier, the Zukan's entry was cut off and he should check the entry once more. The Zukan chirps: "Litwick, the Candle Pokémon. It appears in pitch-black places and pretends to be a guide… by lighting one's way, but in reality, it tries to invite one into the spirit world. It absorbs the life energy of humans and Pokémon and uses it to light the flame on its head". Cilan suggests that the Litwick switched off the Zukan in an attempt to prevent them from realizing the truth. Iris demands that they have to find Pikachu and Axew quickly. Jessie and James walk down a hallway in search of Meowth. Jessie shouts out for the Litwick to turn her life energy. At the end of the hallway, the elevator opens enveloping James and Jessie in a dark mist. Ash and Iris manage to locate two of the Litwick and chase them down a stairwell. At the end of the stairwell, is a basement, which contains the exhausted bodies of Pikachu, Axew, Meowth, and Yamask. Ash and Iris rush over to comfort their injured Pokémon. Moments later, the doors slam shut trapping the three inside. Team Rocket smash through the door afterwards, saying they have finally found them. Team Rocket recite their magnificent motto in a fatigued state, barely unable to form coherent sentences due to the Litwick's effect. Jessie states that they should escape as soon as possible. Meowth questions Jessie's intents, stating that it is their opportunity to capture Pikachu. James responds that they are in trouble and the Litwick is absorbing their life energy. The four Litwick reveal themselves with a Lampent. Ash queries his Zukan on Lampent's entry: "Lampent, the Lamp Pokémon. The evolved form of Litwick. In few cases, it absorbs the life energy of humans and Pokémon together with Litwick and is said to guide them to the spirit world". The ghost Pokémon launch a devasting Inferno attack, which collides into a nearby wall, creating an opening to the Spirit World. Three of the Litwick launch Shadow Ball while the other launches Inferno. The barrage of attacks successfully strike Axew, Pikachu, Yamask, and Meowth; throwing them towards the opening into the Spirit World. Lampent launches an Inferno attack, which collides with the opening causing it to enlarge. Cilan states that they won't be able to escape unless they defeat Lampent and the Litwick.

Ash rotates his wrist releasing Oshawott from his Monster Ball. Oshawott launches Water Gun towards the ghost Pokémon however Lampent uses Protect to deflect the attack. Dent releases Dwebble, who contributes with X-Scissor. The Litwick playfully dodge the attack putting in little effort. Jessie flicks her wrist releasing Woobat. Woobat and Yamask launch an Air Slash and Shadow Ball attack towards the Litwick. The Litwick continue to evade the attacks and retaliate with Psychic, restricting Yamask and Woobat's movements, forcing them into Jessie and James which thrusts them closer to the Spirit World entrance. The Litwick continue to absorb their life energy as Team Rocket struggles to keep their grasp on the ground. Jessie manages to lose her grip however Ash rushes over grasping her arm, preventing her from demise in the Spirit World. The Litwick launch a barrage of Shadow Balls, which strike Cilan and thrust him towards the Spirit World. James rushes over and grasps Cilan's arm, managing to save him. Jessie states they should form a truce to defeat the ghost Pokémon. James suggests they should combine their strengths to defeat the ghosts. Yamask launches Shadow Ball however Lampent uses Protect to deflect the attack. Dwebble follows up with X-Scissor as Lampent's shield begins to fade, striking the Litwick. Lampent retaliates with Inferno however Oshawott blocks the attack with Water Gun. Woobat launches Air Slash striking Lampent for a direct hit. Pikachu finishes with Electro Ball, which thrusts the ghosts back into the Spirit World, causing the mansion to return to its previous state. With the defeat of the ghosts, Team Rocket's vitality is returned. The group exit the mansion and realize that the mansion is actually in a ravaged state, only previously appearing as a magnificent mansion due to the ghost's illusion. Team Rocket states when they meet again, they will definitely take Pikachu!. Team Rocket blasts into the sky, equipped with Jetpacks. Iris points up to the sky stating it smells of water again.

Due to the Litwick's evil scheme, Ash and his friends were dangerously close to being taken to the spirit world. Going through various trials, their journey to Nimbasa City continues.

French Official Summary

En route vers Méanville et le prochain combat d'Arène de Sacha, nos héros sont surpris par un terrible orage. La pluie, le vent, le tonnerre et les éclairs se déchaînent. Ils aperçoivent un manoir et s’y précipitent pour échapper au mauvais temps, mais le lieu semble inhabité. Cependant, il s’avère qu’il est bel et bien occupé par un groupe de Funécire ainsi que par la fameuse Team Rocket. Jessie, James et Miaouss se sont dit que le manoir constituerait pour eux une excellente base secrète, et lorsqu’ils découvrent que les « Morveux » sont là également, ils demandent aux Funécire (par le truchement de leur Tutafeh) de capturer Pikachu et de chasser le reste de la troupe. Mais les Funécire ont d’autres projets... Malgré les efforts des Funécire pour empêcher les trois amis de se documenter sur eux grâce au Pokédex de Sacha, nos Héros finissent par découvrir que cette espèce de Pokémon “semble aider les gens à se frayer un chemin en illuminant les endroits obscurs, mais les conduit en réalité dans le Monde des Spectres. Ils se nourrissent de l’énergie vitale des humains et des Pokémon, et l’utilisent comme carburant pour alimenter les flammes situées sur leur tête.” Dans le même temps, l’énergie vitale de la Team Rocket est absorbée par les Funécire. Nos héros et la Team Rocket décident alors de faire cause commune. Après un terrible combat auquel participent tous les Pokémon, les Funécire (et un Mélancolux qui a rejoint leur quatuor) sont renvoyés dans le Monde des Spectres. La Team Rocket fait ses adieux, tout en jurant d’attraper un jour Pikachu, et nos héros reprennent la route de Méanville.

Jessie, James und Mauzi halten das Herrenhaus als Geheimbasis für geradezu perfekt. Als sie entdecken, dass die Ash und seine Freunde sich ebenfalls im Inneren des Hauses befinden, beauftragen sie ihr Makabaja und eine ansässige Gruppe von Lichtel damit, Pikachu zu fangen und den Rest der Gruppe aus dem Haus zu jagen. Die Lichtel jedoch haben ganz offensichtlich andere Pläne… Zunächst gelingt es ihnen, ihre wahren Motive vor unseren Helden zu verbergen, indem sie Ashs Pokédex stören. Doch unsere Helden kommen ihnen schließlich doch auf die Schliche: Die Lichtel saugen die Lebensenergie der Menschen und der Pokémon in sich auf und speisen damit die Flammen, die auf ihrem Köpfen brennen.

Finnish Official Summary

Matkallaan kohti Nimbasa Cityä ja Ashin seuraavaa saliottelua, sankarimme joutuvat rajun ukkosmyrskyn kynsiin. He löytävät kartanon ja etsivät sieltä suojaa, mutta sisälle tullessaan huomaavat sen tyhjäksi. Käykin ilmi, että kartanoa asuttaa ryhmä Litwickejä, sekä rakettiryhmä. Jessie, James ja Meowth pitävät autiota kartanoa erinomaisena tukikohtana, siksipä he, huomattuaan että pällit ovat myös kartanossa, pyytävätkin Litwickejä (Yamaskinsa avulla) sieppaamaan Pikachun ja ajamaan toiset pois. Litwickeillä on kuitenkin toisenlaisia suunnitelmia… Vaikka Litwickit yrittävätkin estää sankareitamme käyttämästä Ashin pokédexiä, he saavat lopulta kuitenkin selville, että Litwickit “näyttävät auttavan ihmisiä valaisemalla pimeitä paikkoja, mutta todellisuudessa ne yrittävät johdattaa ihmisiä Haamumaahan. Ne imevät ihmisten ja pokémonien elinvoimaa ja käyttävät sitä valaistakseen päänsä päällä tanssivia liekkejä”. Samanaikaisesti, Litwickit imevät myös rakettiryhmän elinvoimaa, joten sankarimme ja rakettiryhmä yhdistävät voimansa. Oteltuaan raskaasti kaikilla pokémoneillaan, he saavat ajettua Littwickit (ja yhden Lampertin, joka liittyi Litwickeihin) takaisin Haamumaailmaan. Rakettiryhmä jättää jäähyväiset ja vannoo vielä sieppaavansa Pikachun jonakin päivänä. Sankarimme taas jatkavat matkaansa Nimbasa Cityyn.

Dutch Official Summary

Op weg naar Nimbasa City en de volgende Gym Gevecht uitdaging van Ash, komen onze helden in een enorme onweersbui terecht. Ze vinden een landhuis, gaan er naar binnen om te schuilen, maar treffen niemand aan. Het blijkt bewoond te worden door een groep Litwick en ook bezet te zijn door niemand anders dan Team Rocket. Jessie, James en Meowth geloven dat het landhuis de perfecte geheime basis kan zijn en  wanneer zij er stiekem achter komen dat de Ettertjes er ook zijn, vragen zij de Litwick, via hun Yamask, om PIkachu te vangen en de rest weg te jagen. Maar de Litwick hebben andere plannen. Hoewel de Litwick proberen te voorkomen dat onze helden iets over ze te weten komen door de Pokédex van Ash, ontdekken zij uiteindelijk toch dat de Litwick mensen lijken te helpen om de weg te vinden, door donkere plaatsen te verlichten, maar in werkelijkheid leiden ze hen naar de Geestenwereld. Ze voeden zich met de levensenergie van zowel mensen als Pokémon en gebruiken die als brandstof voor de vlammen op hun hoofd.” Tegelijkertijd wordt de levensenergie van Team Rocket door de Litwick weggezogen, dus gaan onze helden samenwerken met Team Rocket. Na een stevig gevecht van al hun Pokémon, worden de Litwick (en een Lampent, die zich aangesloten heeft bij het Litwick kwartet) teruggestuurd naar de Geestenwereld. Team Rocket vertrekt en belooft ooit Pikachu te zullen vangen, en onze helden trekken weer verder naar Nimbasa City.

Norwegian Official Summary

På vei mot Nimbasa City og Ash sin neste Gym-kamputfordring, blir heltene våre overrasket av et voldsomt uvær med regn, torden og lyn. De oppdager et herskapshus, og de går inn der for å komme unna det dårlige været, men de finner ingen der. Det viser seg at det er bebodd av en flokk med Litwicker og ingen andre enn Team Rocket befinner seg også der. Jessie, James og Meowth mener at herskapshuset vil være en perfekt hemmelig base for dem, og når de i all hemmelighet oppdager at Dustene er der også, ber de Litwickene(vi deres Yamask) om å fange Pikachu og jage resten av dem vekk. Men Litwickene har andre planer. Selv om Litwickene prøver å forhindre heltene våre fra å finne ut om dem på Ash sin Pokédex, finner de til slutt ut at Litwickene ser ut til å hjelpe å lede folk ved å lyse opp steder som ligger i mørket, men i virkeligheten leder de dem til Spøkelsesverdenen. De livnærer seg på livsenergien til mennesker og Pokémon, og bruker den som brensel for flammene på hodene deres. Samtidig blir Team Rockets livsenergi tappet av Litwickene, så heltene våre og Team Rocket slår seg sammen. Etter noen voldsomme kamper med alle deres Pokémon, blir Litwickene (og Lampentene som har gått i lag med Litwick-kvartetten) sendt til Spøkelsesverdenen. Team Rocket tar farvel, men de lover å fange Pikachu en dag, og heltene våre har nok engang blikkene festet mot Nimbasa City.

Swedish Official Summary

På deras väg mot Nimbasa City och Ashs nästa Gym-stridsutmaning, hamnar våra hjältar i en ordentlig storm med massa regn, åska och blixtar. De hittar ett hus och går in, för att komma ifrån stormen, men hittar ingen där. Det visar sig vara bebott av en grupp Litwick och även av inga mindre än team Rocket. Jessie, James och Meowth tycker att huset är den perfekta platsen för en bas åt dem och när de i hemlighet upptäcker att ”Fjantarna” också är där, ber de Litwick (genom deras Yamask) att tillfångata Pikachu och jaga bort de andra. Men Litwick har andra planer… Även om Litwick försöker hindra våra hjältar från att få veta om dem på Ashs Pokédex, kommer de till sist fram till att Litwick ”verkar hjälpa genom att visa vägen genom mörka platser”, men i verkligheten leder de faktiskt dem till Spök-världen! De livnär sig på folks och Pokémons livsenergi och använder den som bränsle till flammorna på sina huvuden. På samma gång dräneras Team Rocket på sin livsenergi av Litwick, så våra hjältar och TeamRocket gör gemensam sak. Efter lite kraftfull strid med alla Pokémon, skickas Litwick (och en Lampent, som har gått med Litwick-kvartetten) tillbaka till Spök-världen. När de tar farväl svär Team Rocket på att en dag fånga Pikachu och så ger de sig iväg. Och våra hjältar styr åter igen kosan mot Nimbasa City.

De finder et slot, som de går ind i for at komme i ly for det dårlige vejr. Det viser sig, at det er beboet af en gruppe Litwick samt ingen ringere end Team Rocket. Jessie, James og Meowth tror, ​​at slottet vil være en perfekt hemmelig base for dem, og når de pludselig opdager, at rollingerne også er der, beder de Litwick (gennem deres Yamask) om at fange Pikachu og jage resten af dem væk. Men Litwick har andre planer. Selv om Litwick forsøger at forhindre vores helte i, at lære om dem på Ash 's Pokédex, ender de med at finde ud, at Litwick faktisk er ond, og fører mennesker ind i Spøgelseverdenen.

This episode ended up being better than I thought. I thought it was going to be similar to the Rotom DP episode and the Kanto Tower episode. It had elements of both episodes but fortunately it managed to stay unique.

Aiming to enter the Unova League, Ash and his friends continue their journey to Nimbasa City where the next Gym is located.

Our exhausted heroes drag their tired bodies through a remote forest, heading towards Ash's next gym location. Ash complains about the heat and that if only it had rained, the coolness would really help. Iris stops and points towards the sky stating, "Southerly wind, which smells of water. It's about to rain" Ash and Cilan turn around questioning Iris's prediction, without a raincloud in sight. Ash laughs stating that the sun is shining so brightly that if it really rains, he will walk on his hands for the entire day. Iris continues pointing towards the sky shouting, "No, what will come will come!". The sound of thunder crackles through the sky causing Ash to stare in amazement. Lightning streaks across a darkened sky, bringing a downpour of rain atop Iris, Ash, and Cilan. Iris points up confirming her prediction. Cilan suggests they should take shelter somewhere, and the three begin racing down the drenched forest path.

Through the darkness, Iris manages to locate a mysterious structure in the distance. Dent states they should take shelter at the residence. Ash, Iris, and Dent finally reach the massive mansion previously noticed by Iris in the distance. The mansion appears to be in a maintained state. Ash begins banging on the front door while Cilan shouts if anyone is home. Ash continues knocking in an attempt to attract the mansion's owner. After a few moments, the front door opens without a soul in sight. Our heroes stare in a confused state, however take advantage of the situation and take cover in the mansion. Ash shouts if anyone is there. Dent shouts out that they should please let them take shelter from the rain for a while. Cilan suggests that no one is home. Meanwhile, Team Rocket has successfully setup communication and surveillance within the mansion prior to Ash's arrival, examining his every move. James complains that after they finally managed to find a perfect place for a hideout far from civilization, Ash manages to interrupt their operations. Meowth states that Ash arrived just shortly after they were able to successfully make communication with headquarters. The three sigh at the situation. James states that Ash continues to get in their way. Jessie suggests that they should take advantage of the situation, and capture Pikachu quickly. On the opposite side of the room, a group of four Litwick playfully dances with James's Yamask. James suggests that they should take advantage of the native Litwick in the mansion to scare away Ash. Meowth suggests that the Litwick will listen to Yamask's orders. James calls for Yamask, who floats over read to heed his command. James commands Yamask to tell the Litwick to get PIkachu and chase Ash out. Yamask floats over to the opposite side of the room and delivers the orders to the four Litwick.

Ash opens a door to an adjacent room to the main hallway asking if anyone is home. Iris states that it really looks like no one is home. Cilan suggests they should stay there until the rain stops and it would be fine to explain the situation afterwards. Our heroes sit down in the main hallway, waiting out the heavy rainfall. Iris announces it was just as she had predicted. Cilan compliments Iris on her instinct of the wilderness. Ash states that he will keep his previous promise (to walk on his hands for the entire day), bending over and flipping into a handstand. Iris states that Ash doesn't have to do such a thing and does such childish things. A window is forced open by the strong wind from the storm. Cilan steps over and reattaches the window latch, stating that everything will be fine. However, after a few moments, the latch reopens, and the windows flap against the wind. A nearby table begins shaking and after a moment, is thrown towards Iris and Ash who are seated on the mansion floor. Ash and Iris stare in a confused state, unsure how the table had moved by itself. Iris suggests that the mansion feels strange as if someone is watching them. Cilan suggests that it was just the wind. Iris questions Cilan if the wind can really move a huge table across the room. Ash and Cilan stare at Iris in a terrified state, at an object moving behind Iris. Iris questions why they both are looking at her like a Pidove that got hit by a Water Gun. Ash stutters, suggesting for Iris to look behind herself.

Iris rotates around and notices a statue comprised off an umbrella, lamp, and other household objects that are approaching them. The floating statue begins swinging the lamp at Iris, and the three begin racing around the mansion in an attempt to escape. Cilan suggests they should go outside however a giant dresser is thrown in front, blocking the entrance. Cilan shouts that they should find another exit. As Cilan examines the situation for an alternative exit, the floating statue quickly approaches and slams into the door, throwing Cilan, Ash, and Iris into the ground. The inanimate statue manages to fall to the ground beside Cilan, sending him screaming away in fear. Team Rocket continues examining the situation through their surveillance system. Jessie questions why the Litwick blocked the entrance when they were directed to chase everyone out of the mansion. Meowth suggests that the Litwick haven't understood their orders. Meowth stumbles off saying that he will go tell Yamask. Our heroes manage to escape into the dining hall and seat themselves at the gigantic table. Ash sighs, questioning what is wrong with the place. Cilan realizes that the table has been set. Iris suggests that maybe there is someone at the mansion after all. After a few moments, a small bell rings and Ash, Iris, and Cilan are levitated into the air. The three are thrown through the gigantic room and soon after, the dinnerware begins levitating at a high velocity towards our heroes, smashing into the mansion wall. The dining room doors open and Ash, Iris, and Cilan forcefully slam into the ground.

Ash stares up noticing a white glove, which appears as a person’s hand, only coming to realize that the costume, has no human body inside. The room is filled with many colorful women and men's attire. The haunted costumes begin throwing Dent, Iris, and Ash throughout the room. Soon after, Pikachu launches an attack, enveloping the room in electricity and returning the clothes to an inanimate state throwing Ash, Cilan, and Iris to the ground. A group of clothes begins rustling, and the group of Litwick attempt to escape the room, however are noticed by Ash. Ash shouts for the group to wait however they continue to rush out of the room. One Litwick manages to trip in its attempt to escape and slams into the ground. Ash rushes over, angrily demanding if it was the Litwick who were causing the disturbances. Ash queries his Zukan on Litwick's data: "Litwick, the Candle Pokémon. It appears in pitch-dark places and pretends to be a guide by lighting one's way…". The Zukan turns off halfway through the entry. Ash stares at the blank screen, having never encountered the problem before. Cilan states that Litwick is responsible for the strange events in the mansion and that he is sure it can use Psychic. Ash questions Litwick if it's trainer is the owner of the mansion. The three continue to question Litwick about its owner, however it just continues starting in a confused state. Ash states they haven't come to do anything bad. Iris contributes that they aren't burglars. Cilan states they had just thought they could rest there for a while during the storm.

Ash, Iris, and Cilan walk through a hallway, asking Litwick where it's friends are. Ash questions if Litwick is even able to understand what they are asking. Ash continues walking and is soon greeted by Yamask that has hidden all of its body except it's mask. Afterwards, Meowth and the remaining Litwick manage to walk down a hallway adjacent to Iris. Iris manages to notice Meowth walking through the nearby hallway. Ash shouts out, questioning Meowth about what he is doing with the Litwick. Meowth avoids the question and rushes down a nearby hallway with the group of Litwick. Ash turns around the corner, however the four are nowhere in sight. Cilan states he cannot believe that Team Rocket is in such a place. Ash states they must be plotting something and they should go and check. Meowth manages to successfully return to Team Rocket's hideout. Jessie lectures Meowth about being discovered. James questions Meowth if he is all right, because he appears to be thinner. Meowth responds that James does as well. James begins rubbing his face, unaware of his fatigued state as well. Jessie questions what is up with the two, looking so haggard. James states that Jessie also looks haggard as well. Meowth suggests that it is because they have been working without taking a break. Jessie states that they still have to get Pikachu and chase the others away as soon as possible, in order to preserve their secret base. James states that in order to be active in the Unova region, they must have a front line base. The three Litwick interrupt the trio, shouting "Litwick Litwick Litwick". James manages to realize that the Litwick flames are bigger than before. Jessie states that it is just his imagination. Jessie stares at Yamask, saying that it needs to tell the Litwick to continue chasing everyone away. Yamask delivers the orders and the group of Litwick grin in agreement.

Ash shouts out for Team Rocket to reveal themselves. Cilan demands to know where they are hiding. Iris shouts that if they are planning to do something bad, it won't work. A group of tables begin levitating, caused another Litwick. Litwick begins throwing the tables at Ash, Cilan and Iris. Ash commands for Litwick to stop because they are not its enemies. Litwick continues its barrage, forcing the room's chandeliers towards the ground. The three manage to escape the barrage of attacks and escape into an adjacent room. Cilan questions why the Litwick have been attacking them. After the attack, Iris realizes that Axew was lost during their escape. Ash questions Iris if Axew was running behind Pikachu as they were escaping. Iris begins shouting for Axew, however he is nowhere to be found. James discovers that Yamask has also disappeared. Meowth states that Yamask is away supervising the Litwick. Our heroes walk down a nearby mansion hallway, shouting out for Axew. Pikachu stares down an adjacent hallway, and is soon ambushed by Litwick. Ash turns around questioning where Pikachu had disappeared. Dent states that Pikachu had just been walking with them before. Iris suggests that Pikachu could have become separated as well. Iris suggests that Team Rocket may have a connection to the two Pokémon’s disappearance.

Team Rocket manage to successfully make contact with a professor, announcing that they have found the ideal place for a base in the Unova Region. The professor questions what kind of building it is. Team Rocket responds that it is a really big mansion including a kitchen, bathroom, elevator, walk-in closet, and even an army of Litwick. James states they are very obedient and nice Pokémon who listen to everything they say. The professor suggests they should be careful, because Litwick are said to absorb the life energy of Pokémon and humans. The professor continues stating that he has always wanted to analyze their abilities himself. James and Jessie come to the conclusion that their life energy has been absorbed the Litwick the entire time. James suggests it is the reason they look so haggard. James states that their situation is dire and they should escape. James soon realizes that Meowth has also disappeared. Jessie states that Meowth had went to check on the Litwick. Meowth manages to locate the Litwick and demands for them to continue chasing Ash. After a few moments, the Litwick uses Psychic and begins levitating Meowth into the air.

Our heroes continue their search for Axew and Pikachu, returning to the main entrance. Iris questions where they could have gone. Cilan states that earlier, the Zukan's entry was cut off and he should check the entry once more. The Zukan chirps: "Litwick, the Candle Pokémon. It appears in pitch-black places and pretends to be a guide… by lighting one's way, but in reality, it tries to invite one into the spirit world. It absorbs the life energy of humans and Pokémon and uses it to light the flame on its head". Cilan suggests that the Litwick switched off the Zukan in an attempt to prevent them from realizing the truth. Iris demands that they have to find Pikachu and Axew quickly. Jessie and James walk down a hallway in search of Meowth. Jessie shouts out for the Litwick to turn her life energy. At the end of the hallway, the elevator opens enveloping James and Jessie in a dark mist. Ash and Iris manage to locate two of the Litwick and chase them down a stairwell. At the end of the stairwell, is a basement, which contains the exhausted bodies of Pikachu, Axew, Meowth, and Yamask. Ash and Iris rush over to comfort their injured Pokémon. Moments later, the doors slam shut trapping the three inside. Team Rocket smash through the door afterwards, saying they have finally found them. Team Rocket recite their magnificent motto in a fatigued state, barely unable to form coherent sentences due to the Litwick's effect. Jessie states that they should escape as soon as possible. Meowth questions Jessie's intents, stating that it is their opportunity to capture Pikachu. James responds that they are in trouble and the Litwick is absorbing their life energy. The four Litwick reveal themselves with a Lampent. Ash queries his Zukan on Lampent's entry: "Lampent, the Lamp Pokémon. The evolved form of Litwick. In few cases, it absorbs the life energy of humans and Pokémon together with Litwick and is said to guide them to the spirit world". The ghost Pokémon launch a devasting Inferno attack, which collides into a nearby wall, creating an opening to the Spirit World. Three of the Litwick launch Shadow Ball while the other launches Inferno. The barrage of attacks successfully strike Axew, Pikachu, Yamask, and Meowth; throwing them towards the opening into the Spirit World. Lampent launches an Inferno attack, which collides with the opening causing it to enlarge. Cilan states that they won't be able to escape unless they defeat Lampent and the Litwick.

Ash rotates his wrist releasing Oshawott from his Monster Ball. Oshawott launches Water Gun towards the ghost Pokémon however Lampent uses Protect to deflect the attack. Dent releases Dwebble, who contributes with X-Scissor. The Litwick playfully dodge the attack putting in little effort. Jessie flicks her wrist releasing Woobat. Woobat and Yamask launch an Air Slash and Shadow Ball attack towards the Litwick. The Litwick continue to evade the attacks and retaliate with Psychic, restricting Yamask and Woobat's movements, forcing them into Jessie and James which thrusts them closer to the Spirit World entrance. The Litwick continue to absorb their life energy as Team Rocket struggles to keep their grasp on the ground. Jessie manages to lose her grip however Ash rushes over grasping her arm, preventing her from demise in the Spirit World. The Litwick launch a barrage of Shadow Balls, which strike Cilan and thrust him towards the Spirit World. James rushes over and grasps Cilan's arm, managing to save him. Jessie states they should form a truce to defeat the ghost Pokémon. James suggests they should combine their strengths to defeat the ghosts. Yamask launches Shadow Ball however Lampent uses Protect to deflect the attack. Dwebble follows up with X-Scissor as Lampent's shield begins to fade, striking the Litwick. Lampent retaliates with Inferno however Oshawott blocks the attack with Water Gun. Woobat launches Air Slash striking Lampent for a direct hit. Pikachu finishes with Electro Ball, which thrusts the ghosts back into the Spirit World, causing the mansion to return to its previous state. With the defeat of the ghosts, Team Rocket's vitality is returned. The group exit the mansion and realize that the mansion is actually in a ravaged state, only previously appearing as a magnificent mansion due to the ghost's illusion. Team Rocket states when they meet again, they will definitely take Pikachu!. Team Rocket blasts into the sky, equipped with Jetpacks. Iris points up to the sky stating it smells of water again.

Due to the Litwick's evil scheme, Ash and his friends were dangerously close to being taken to the spirit world. Going through various trials, their journey to Nimbasa City continues.

Yeah, that's also why I really liked this episode. They managed something unique with a rather cliché and over-used theme (the haunted mansion). Several scenes had me laugh quite a bit. Though I found it a little darker than the other BW episodes (what with the ghost Pokémon trying to suck them into the Ghost World = kill them), which kinda surprised me.

And I was so delighted to finally have some good ol' Rocket Gang action, though the episode didn't end up with them being blown away by Satoshi's Pikachu. It's still a marvel how they always end up in trouble whatever they're trying to do, even when it's something as simple as just try to stay hidden somewhere! I hope they'll get some new Pokémon in the following episode, though I'll admit I really miss Sonansu. He'd been there since the Johto episodes, it really feels weird not to have him around anymore.

Once again, great animation and great music.
As for the next episode... I can't wait to watch it. Hopefully, Kibago won't just be there for comic relief anymore. Good thing he's going to get some spotlight!
