When the frightened Phantump lands among our heroes, they introduce it to some new friends and promise to take it back home, but Team Rocket has other ideas… In disguise, the villains lure Phantump away with the promise of more new friends—but its real friends soon come to the rescue, as the group of Phantump from the forest shows up to send Team Rocket blasting off again!

Le Brocélôme effrayé atterrit au milieu de nos héros, qui lui présentent de nouveaux amis et promettent de le ramener chez lui. Mais la Team Rocket a d’autres projets.
