OP/ED List

Ash and co. are headed for another city while on their way to Violet City. They are making their way through a shortcut. Pikachu senses something in the bushes. Something that looks like eyes comes out. Brock tells the group that those aren't eyes. Finally, the thing comes out. It is a Stantler, and its horns were mistaken for eyes. Ash looks up Stantler in his Pokédex. Misty wonders what Stantler is doing in the city. Brock says that this Stantler is still young and probably got lost. Brock then kneels down to the ground and starts to act like a Stantler. He tells Ash and Misty that in order to get close to a Stantler, you have to act like one. When Brock gets closer to Stantler, Stantler gets a bit creeped out and backs away. Suddenly, Brock sees that Stantler's leg is injured. He offers Stantler some food. Stantler then sends out a purple aroma which smells very refreshing. Ash and co. snaps out of their trance from the aroma. They see a herd of Stantler behind Brock. Brock runs from the baby Stantler with Ash and Misty following him. The herd begins to chase them down. A few seconds later, Ash and co. stop for a rest. They notice that the herd isn't anywhere in sight. Brock hopes that the Stantler's mother can take care of it. Then another rustle in the bushes occur. Thinking that it might be the herd, Ash and co. stand guard. However, Officer Jenny pops out. She tells them that they need to fill out a report at the station.

At the station, Officer Jenny says that a lot of families don't go near the park anymore because the herd of Stantler keeps chasing them out. Misty finds it strange because Stantler usually live in the mountains. Officer Jenny agrees with her, but for some reason the Stantler have moved down. Brock thinks that it's crazy about how the Stantler were chasing them because they disappeared without a trace. Suddenly, a faint scream is heard. Ash and co. runs outside. They see Team Rocket running. Team Rocket says their motto. When they are done, they tell Ash and co. that the Stantler were chasing them. Team Rocket looks behind them and notice that the Stantler aren't chasing them anymore. Everyone finds it strange on how the Stantler always just disappear. Suddenly, a Stantler that is hiding in an alley lets out an aroma again. The herd suddenly appears and Team Rocket runs. Everyone but Brock runs inside the police station. Brock watches carefully at the Stantler, and he finally realizes how the Stantler are always disappearing. The herd comes closer to Brock. They trample over Brock, but when the herd disappears, Brock is still standing in the same spot. Out on the street is the baby Stantler. Brock reassures the Stantler that it will be safe.

Back at the police station, Brock bandages up Stantler's leg. Stantler thanks Brock by sitting on Brock's lap. Ash and Misty ask Brock where the other Stantler had went. Brock explains to them that there weren't any other Stantler. This baby Stantler only used the scent of its aroma to trick everyone in thinking there was a herd. Officer Jenny asks Brock how he figured out that the herd was an illusion. Brock tells her that he saw some of the herd past right through lightposts, and so the herd must've been fake. Misty says that the baby Stantler caused a lot of trouble. Brock reminds her that it was the only thing that Stantler could do to protect itself. Officer Jenny is impressed at what Brock knew. Ash tells her that Brock wants to become a great breeder. Brock begins to talk about how he saw the feelings in the Stantler's eyes. He knew that Stantler felt alone and sad.

Team Rocket has been listening in Ash and co.'s conversation. Meowth tells his friends that they've been cheated. Only one of the Stantler was real. James tells the group that he has an Anti Stantler Secret Weapon. Meowth tells James that he doesn't look as brainless as he is. Jessie asks James how he got the weapon. James tells her that he used up the rest of their money to buy it. Jessie and Meowth get frustrated with him, but James tells them that they have to catch something good to give to the boss.

At night, Ash and co. are discussing of what they should do with the Stantler tomorrow. Ash and Misty notice that the Stantler is really attached to Brock and that he should keep it. Brock tells them that it probably wants its mother who is back in the mountains. He tells them that anyone should know that. Misty tells Brock that he really can sense of what is in a Pokémon's heart because he has a good one himself.

The next day, Ash and co. walk to the place where the road to the mountains are at. Brock places Stantler down and tells it to go back home. Stantler starts to bond with Brock. Ash and Misty think that Brock should keep it for awhile. Then Brock demands to Stantler to go home and stay there. Seeing the harshness of Brock, Stantler slowly walks back to its home. Brock knows that Stantler will be alright.

Meanwhile, Team Rocket is searching for Stantler from their balloon. Meowth spots it, and they begin to float down to it. Brock notices Team Rocket is approaching the Stantler. James gets out a remote and presses a button. A big giant robot Stantler comes out. Jessie and Meowth wants to know how James' weapon works. Stantler tries to use the same aroma as before, but it doesn't work. Then James presses another button, and a net shoots out from the robot which captures the Stantler. Now Team Rocket has to go down and get it. Meowth understands that Stantler only wants to find its mother again. Meowth asks Jessie and James if they should let it go, but they don't want to. Jessie and James gathers up Stantler and they head off. Brock runs up to them. James presses another button on his remote and the robot Stantler shoots out some long sticks, blocking Brock's way. Meowth asks James if he is going to take his robot with him. James doesn't want to since they already have Stantler. Brock sends out Onix. Onix uses Tackle on the robot, and then it uses Bind. The Stantler gets crushed and explodes. Brock then returns Onix. Just then, Ash and Misty come up. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt, but Team Rocket is too far away for the attack to work. Brock calls out for Stantler.

Suddenly, another Stantler runs out from the forest. It jumps up and slices Team Rocket's balloon in half. Stantler starts to fall. Bulbasaur tries a Vine Whip to grab onto the net. However, the net breaks from the bottom, and Stantler begins to fall again. Brock runs as fast as he can, and he catches Stantler. Team Rocket falls to the ground too. They notice a herd of Stantler staring at them. Team Rocket thinks that it is the same trick again. James throws his remote which hits a Stantler's head. The Stantler then crushes the remote. Team Rocket soon realizes that they are facing a real herd of Stantler. The herd runs towards Team Rocket and throws them in the air, blasting them off again.

At sunset, Brock says a farewell to Stantler. Stantler's mother comes up and hugs her baby. Then the herd departs and head back to the mountains.
