Episode Recap

Ash, Misty and Brock delivered the G.S. Ball to Kurt. To their surprise, Kurt also has no clue about it. He told them that he will try to find something out about it.

Ash, Misty and Brock called Professor Oak and told him that they were in Kurt's house. They talk for a while and suddenly Muk pounds on Professor Oak.(Behind them we see Tracey feeding a male and female Nidoran.) Professor Oak gets away from Muk and tells them about the apricorns. Ash wants to ask Kurt to make him an apricorn pokeball. He runs into the room where Kurt was, loudly. Kurt's granddaughter, Maisey tells him to keep it quiet because it's hard enough working without his noise. Kurt was making a ball. When he finished, Ash asked him if he could make him an apricorn pokeball. Kurt gave Ash, Misty and Brock three Fast Balls, one for each.

While Kurt was trying to find something out about the G.S. Ball, Maisey showed Ash, Misty and Brock where all the Apricorns were. Ash acted greedy and tried to get all the apricorns. But Maisey said that the pink apricorns weren't good enough yet. When they came to the yellow apricorns Maisey told Ash to look around more carefully because there were Pineco in the tree. Brock really wants to catch one but bumps into the tree. The Pineco self-destructed around Brock. When they come to the green apricorns, Maisey allows Ash to pick some but all of a sudden Beedrill appear and chase them.

Ash, Misty, Brock and Maisey come to a red apricorn tree and fall into a hole. As usually, Team Rocket were behind it. They steal Pikachu and come closer to the tree to collect the apricorns. Ash sends Bulbasaur to get them out of the hole.(Ladies first!) Team Rocket fall into a hole and Ash gets his Pikachu back. Lots of Diglett dug that hole. Next, Maisey takes the three to a tree with blue apricorns. Ash and Misty took one each (they're for water Pokemon).

Then Maisey takes them to a black apricorn tree. There were more Pineco there. Brock was happy. He tries catching one again but suddenly a wind blows. The Pineco start falling. Brock catches them in his hands so they wouldn't self-destruct. Team Rocket appeared again and tried to steal the black apricorns. They were on some crazy machine with a fan next to it. A Pineco went towards them and Brock tried to stop it. The Pineco got Team Rocket off the machine and the fan stops working. Team Rocket sends out Arbok and Victreebel. Victreebel swallowed James like always. Arbok attacks Pineco but Pineco dodges it and goes toward Team Rocket. Brock tells it to stop. Maisey tells him to use the Fast Ball. Brock did so and he caught the Pineco!!

While Pineco went into the pokeball, Arbok was pounding on it. Because Pineco got in the ball, Arbok missed and accidentally fell on the machine. Pineco's ball was shaking in Brock's hand and stopped. Team Rocket were angry. They attacked again but Pikachu beat them with thundershock and the machine exploded. "Team Rocket's blasting off again!"

Brock let Pineco out of its ball and said they're going to become good friends. Pineco was happy and used self-destruct again! Ash took a black apricorn and they went back to Kurt. They gave him the apricorns and let him keep the G.S. Ball a little bit longer.
