Our heroes are wandering through the forest without a compass, trying to find the path to [[Vermilion City]]. [[Ash Ketchum|Ash
} and [[Misty]] are fighting, as usual, this time over who led them astray, while [[Brock]] is trying to get them to cool down.
They pause for a rest, and Ash sees an [[Oddish (Pokémon)|Oddish]] taking a drink. Misty sends her [[Misty's Starmie|Starmie]] to fight the Oddish so she can catch it. The Oddish is defeated, but Misty's [[Poké ball]] is deflected by the appearance of a [[Bulbasaur (Pokémon)|Bulbasaur]] before she can claim it. The Bulbasaur attacks and defeats the Starmie; Ash sends his [[Ash's Butterfree|Butterfree]] after the Bulbasaur with a [[Sleep Powder (move)|Sleep Powder]] attack, but the Bulbasaur blows the powder back at Butterfree. Both the Oddish and the Bulbasaur run off into the underbrush.
