On their quest to get the second badge, Ash and his friends continue their journey to Nacrene City where the next Gym is located. Dent displays an electronic map to Iris and Ash, reflecting their projected route to Nacrene City. A few moments later, the shouts of children can be heard in the distance. A group of five children and a Trubbish ride on a group of tricycles towards our heroes followed shortly after by two women. One of the preschoolers’ shouts out that an enemy is spotted ahead, directing his comrades to prepare for attack. Ash stands in a confused state, pondering what the preschoolers meant by attack. The preschoolers begin launching mud balls which successfully strike Ash and Cilan; however Iris manages to escape to a nearby fence post, dodging the flurry of attacks. As the preschoolers cross paths with Ash, Trubbish grabs Ash’s hat which managed to become dislodged from his head from the prior attack. The preschoolers shout out announcing their victory, and escape into the distance. In a cloud of dust and debris, the preschoolers vanish into the horizon. Iris hops down from the fence post, questioning what the intentions of the children were. The two women who were previously pursuing the children successfully catch-up to our heroes; a younger woman of the group, apologizes for the children and states that they are overseen at her kindergarten.
Afterwards, our heroes traverse to the nearby preschool which is also partially utilized as a Pokémon Daycare. Inside, a room contains multiple egg incubators containing unhatched eggs. Cilan suggests that the eggs are filled with the kindness of raising Pokémon. The older woman in the group introduces herself as Karena, operator of the Pokémon Day Care, and the younger woman as Daniela, who runs the kindergarten. Daniela explains that the prior day, the children had brought a Trubbish to the kindergarten without permission and apparently had been found at a scrapyard in the outskirts of town. Ash queries his Pokédex, recalling Trubbish’s entry: “Trubbish, the Trash Bag Pokémon. It is said that a trash bag that was thrown away chemically reacted with waste to become this Pokémon. It likes dirty places such as waste deposits”. After completing the entry, Ash shouts that his hat isn’t garbage (Note: Ash’s hat was previously taken by Trubbish during their first encounter). Daniela states that when she first saw Trubbish, she grimaced without thinking.
Flashback: Daniela explains that upon first seeing the Trubbish, she shrieked out questioning why the kindergartners had brought Trubbish to the school. The schoolchildren explain that Trubbish had been crying, which is why they decided to bring Trubbish home. A young boy in the group questions Daniela if they would be able to keep Trubbish at the kindergarten. Daniela responds that it is impossible because Trubbish is a Pokémon that loves garbage and they cannot allow the kindergarten to be filled with garbage. The children retort that they will clean up the schoolyard if she allows them to keep Trubbish. Daniela shouts out that “No means No!” commanding for the school children to return Trubbish to the scrapyard. The children refuse her request, shouting out that they should be allowed to keep Trubbish. A few moments later, Trubbish belches a small sphere of gas which envelopes Daniela, forcing her to hold her nose due to the stench. The school children also hold their noses to shield themselves from the stench, however attempt to bear the smell and convince their teacher that it doesn’t smell at all.
With a group of reluctant school children, Daniela states that she will return the Pokémon herself, grabbing Trubbish by its plastic body and dragging it back to the scrapyard. Karena states that Daniela properly returned Trubbish back to the scrapyard where it used to be however something unbelievable happened in the morning. Ash questions Karena about what she meant by something “unbelievable”. Outside, the entire schoolyard is enveloped by discarded bookcases, fans, and other discarded consumer goods. The discarded items are stacked together around a nearby tree, creating a makeshift “fortress” for the children. Daniela explains that Trubbish and the children had collected scrap to construct their fortress. Cilan suggests that judging by its taste; it must be a secret base. Ash states that he is impressed by their efforts. Iris responds that it is not the time to be impressed. Daniela states that there will be no surprise if the structure collapses and they should clean it up as soon as possible. Karena questions our heroes if they will aid in the restoration. Ash, Iris, and Cilan respond that they would be glad to assist in their efforts. Daniela thanks the trio for their efforts, stating they will be of great assistance.
Moments later, the group of preschoolers reveal themselves, shouting that it is the secret base of the Trubbish Squadron. The children are adorned in makeshift cardboard armor and weapons. Daniela shouts out to the children, suggesting that they should stop the secret base game. Ash questions Daniela to allow him to pursue the children, as he used to play squadron in his childhood as well which allows him to understand their feeling better. Daniela and Karena agree to allow Ash to pursue the children. As Ash begins ascending the fortress, a child shouts out commanding for the Trubbish Squadron to begin attacking. Trubbish leaps forward and launches a ball of toxic sludge, with collides with the ground nearby, releasing a foul stench which envelops both Ash and Pikachu. As Ash and Pikachu attempt to recover from the attack, the children follow-up with a shower of mud balls which manages to strike Ash in his face. Afterwards, a young boy in the Squadron starts an electric fan, which begins repelling a nearby rope attached to a wooden post. Seconds later, the post is dislodged from the scrap fortress, which forces Ash and Pikachu to crash into the ground. The school children surround Ash, commanding for him not to move. Iris shouts out to Ash, questioning what had happened. Ash explains that he had been captured by the children. Iris commands for Ash to pull himself together. The school children begin shooting Ash and Pikachu with a stream of water, commanding for the two to behave.
Afterwards, Ash successfully enters the secret base, constructed with cardboard and adhesive tape. Ash compliments the children on their construction, stating that it is well-made. Ash questions if the children had built the entire structure by themselves. A young girl, named Choko, in the group explains that Trubbish also assisted in the construction. A boy, named Avery, (wearing Ash’s hat) scolds Choko explaining that she cannot make friends with the enemy. Ash introduces himself and his Pikachu. Choko shouts that she has never seen a real Pikachu before. The children rush over to Pikachu and begin stroking its fur, squealing over Pikachu’s cute appearance. Ash explains that he is not their enemy and has only come to talk. Avery begins pulling at Pikachu’s tail recklessly with the other children. Ash shouts out that the children shouldn’t be so careless with Pikachu, as he will not take responsibility if they are hit by electricity. The children dash backwards in fear, as Pikachu takes stance to launch Thunderbolt. The children stare in anticipation; however Pikachu simply continues to pose in the stance, never intending to launch the attack. Ash explains that Pikachu is an Electric type Pokémon, and cause use a move called Thunderbolt. Pikachu launches Thunderbolt as an example, enveloping Ash in its electric energy. Trubbish walks up to Pikachu and begins standing in a pose to attempt to express itself in a cute manner like Pikachu had previously done. Ash stares at the Trubbish in a confused state, responding that Trubbish is also cute in its own way. The children respond that Trubbish is cute as well. Avery returns Ash’s hat, apologizing for their previous actions.
Later in the afternoon, Team Rocket rendezvous with a comrade at a local train station. In the background, a news reporter discusses the scrapyard incident involving Trubbish. An older man adorned in black clothing approaches Team Rocket and takes a set on the opposite side of their location. Jessie asks the man when the limited express will depart. (Note: This is used as a phrase to identify herself to the messenger). The man responds with “7 PM”, placing a small rectangular case on the ground and kicking it across the floor towards James. James opens the case to reveal a dark object. James questions the man what the object is to be used for. He responds stating that it is a dummy of a certain stone (meteonite) and they will be contacted later with the details. The man continues by complimenting the trio and begins departing, stating that Giovanni has had a high opinion of the trio lately.
Ash suggests to the Trubbish Squadron that they it would be better if they stopped hiding and made up with Daniela. The children shout back that it isn’t their fault, and their actions were influenced by the instructor. The children complain that Daniela only wants to throw Trubbish away although it hasn’t done anything wrong. Ash questions the schoolchildren, inquiring if Daniela wanted to dispose of Trubbish due to it exhaling a foul stench. A younger girl in the squadron, Ann, responds that it is very smelly however is interrupted by Avery who rebukes that it isn’t smelly at all. Trubbish exhales a foul stench which quickly engulfs the interior of the tree house. The school children attempt to deceive Ash by shouting that it isn’t smelly; however after a few moments, Ash screams out that it is in fact smelly. Ash manages to escape from the tree house, taking a much need gasp of fresh air. Avery continues to support Trubbish, stating that it isn’t smelly at all.
A thunderous roar is heard in the distance, and shortly after Sandile reveals itself from underneath the pile of scrap. Ash identifies the Sandile as the previous Pokémon he had encountered at the hot springs. Sandile begins to gather energy in its back, soon forcing it into skyward generating a cluster of small boulders. After a few moments, Sandile launches the attack towards Ash which collides into the nearby terrain. Ash identifies the attack as Stone Edge. The school children begin attacking Sandile, launching a cluster of mud balls which collide with Sandile. Sandile launches another Stone Edge attack, which shatters around the school children. Trubbish launches a sphere of poison energy skyward, which explodes into smaller spheres and absorbs into the terrain surrounding Sandile. Ash identifies the previous attack as Toxic Spikes. Sandile begins pursuing the children, however collides with the cunningly laid Toxic Spikes attack laid by Trubbish. Pikachu follows-up with Iron Tail, striking forth and launching Sandile into the air. With Sandile air born, Trubbish launches Sludge Bomb which successfully strikes Sandile, launching it skyward away from the school. The children cheer in excitement thanking Ash for his efforts.
Shortly after, Daniela interrupts the chatter, suggesting that they should discuss the matter with Trubbish properly. Iris questions Ash why he is now friends with the school children. Ash responds that it just happened in the flow of things. Daniela questions the children about how much longer they want to barricade themselves in the tree house. Avery responds that they will barricade themselves until she agrees to allow Trubbish to stay at the playground. Daniela refuses the child’s statement, stating that Trubbish cannot stay. The school children begin shouting that they do not understand her reasoning. Ash recommends that Daniela should listen to what the children have to say. Daniela responds that Ash should be quiet in the matter, as it is her kindergarten. Ash responds that it is also the children’s kindergarten as well. Daniela rebukes Ash’s statement, stating that she has to protect the children, and will do it by force if necessary. Daniela soon reveals a Pokéball, calling upon her Deerling. Ash steps forward, announcing that he will be her opponent in the battle as he is also a member of the Trubbish Squadron. Deerling dashes forward with Tackle, striking Pikachu. Pikachu retaliates with Thunderbolt; however Deerling successfully dodges the attack. Deerling retaliates with another Tackle, however misses Pikachu, slamming into the fortress of scrap. Deerling’s attack forces the tower of scrap to become dislodged, and begins crashing down. Deerling uses its forehead to temporarily stop the pile of scrap from collapsing. Ash and Pikachu rush over and begin holding the wall of scrap with Deerling, granting everyone an opportunity to escape. Daniela commands for Avery to hurry and run away. Avery refuses, stating that he will stay with Trubbish. Seconds later, a bookcase crashes down from the pile of scrap on a collision course with Avery. Daniela dashes behind Avery and successfully blocks the bookcase from smashing Avery. Trubbish begins launching a barrage of Sludge Bomb attacks, which collides with the pile of scrap and disperses it amongst the schoolyard, preventing it from collapsing on Ash, Avery, and Daniela.
Afterwards, the school children apologize to Daniela for their previous actions. Daniela responds that she is also at fault, for not listening to the children previously. Ash states that the children really love Trubbish, and questions Daniela on his behalf, if they could be allowed to keep Trubbish. After pondering on the proposal, Daniela decides to allow Trubbish to stay at the schoolyard. Karena states that Trubbish should stop exhaling four air once it has befriended the person in question. Dent questions if Karena had known it all along. Karena responds that of course she knew it, due to being a daycare worker. Iris questions why Karena simply didn’t inform Daniela of the information before. Karena responds that individuals have to find out how to raise Pokémon on their own.
Night has fallen on the land and our heroes’ aide in the removal of the scrap. Our heroes’ Pokémon also assist in the cleanup including Pikachu, Oshawott, Tepig, Pansage, Snivy, and Dwebble. After a long night’s work, the school yard is completely rid of scrap. Ash, Iris, and Cilan prepare for departure from the school grounds. Karena interrupts Ash, presenting a round cylinder with a Pokémon Egg, stating that it is her reward to him. Karena continues that he will be able to see what Pokémon it is when it hatches. The school children wish Ash, Iris, and Cilan good luck on their adventure, and suggest that they should play sometime again. Ash responds that they should battle in the future.
Ash and his friends set off again, looking forward to the day they battle the children. Together with the new Pokémon egg, they continue their journey to Nacrene City where the next Gym is.
