James takes Cacnea off her telling her to grow her own. Gardenia asks to borrow it, but James refuses. The children then remind Gardenia that she is supposed to show them a battle.

<i>Ash and his friends run into Gardenia, the Eterna Gym Leader, in the middle of her travels through Sinnoh. Gardenia is about to show off Pokémon battling with a friendly match, but Team Rocket interrupts to try and steal Pikachu! Of course, the minute Gardenia sees James' Cacnea, her love for Grass-type Pokémon blinds her to everything else, and suddenly James finds himself joining Gardenia in a tag battle against Ash and Dawn. Acting on Gardenia's advice, James has Cacnea try a new move, Drain Punch, but it only works once before Pachirisu and Aipom win the battle.

James and Cacnea are sitting on a hill overlooking the town when Jessie tells them to snap out of it. James then reveals that he isn't sure whether to give Cacnea to Gardenia or not.

==While MajorGardenia eventsis ==distracted with Cacnea, Ash and Dawn take advantage, and a cry makes Gardenia remember Turtwig just as it is hit by Pachirisu's Spark, knocking it out. Aipom uses Swift and James calls for another Drain Punch, but the move fails and Cacnea is hit. Aipom then hits it with Focus Punch as it tries to use Drain Punch again, knocking Cacnea out and ending the battle. The children blame James for the loss. Gardenia says that she was right about Cacnea being strong enough to use Drain Punch. Dawn asks why it did not work the other times, and Cacnea explains it was an accident that it worked at all. Gardenia says that it was actually because James and Cacnea were not quite in sync. Gardenia then offers to train Cacnea, before heading to the [[Pokémon Center]] with the kids.
* Gardenia appears again.
*Later, James and Cacnea sit on a hill overlooking the town, depressed and thoughtful, when Jessie tells them to snap out of it. James then reveals that he is not sure whether to give Cacnea to Gardenia or not. Cacnea then says that it would like to learn to use Drain Punch. The "twerps" then return, and Jessie suggests getting them to help Cacnea train. James and Cacnea start training, making Dawn comment that Team Rocket do the right thing "once in a while", angering Jessie and Meowth. Ash and Pikachu offer to help them train, and while Dawn is doubtful, James and Cacnea are delighted. Pikachu uses {{Ashm|Quick Attack}}, which Cacnea counters with Needle Arm. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt, which Cacnea dodges, causing it to hit James instead. Cacnea uses Needle Arm and Pikachu counters with {{anm|DawnIron Tail}}, havebut aNeedle tagArm battlebreaks withthrough [[James]]it and [[Gardenia]]hits Pikachu. Cacnea then tries Drain Punch, but it fails and winCacnea trips on a rock. Brock comments that their timing is still off.
* [[James's Cacnea]] begins to learn {{m|Drain Punch}} and he gives it to Gardenia for training.
Later, Cacnea uses {{TP|James|Carnivine}} and {{AP|Chimchar}} to practice punching. One of Cacnea's punches hits Chimchar in the face, so James tells it to use Drain Punch, but the resulting attack is not very strong. That evening, James goes back to pondering over whether to give Cacnea to Gardenia, and decides to have a training battle with Aipom. Gardenia comes up to watch. Aipom opens with Focus Punch, but Cacnea dodges and uses Needle Arm. They try again, but this time Cacnea misses and is hit by Focus Punch. Cacnea dodges another Focus Punch and counters with Needle Arm, before trying another Drain Punch, but it fails. Cacnea tries to counter repeated Focus Punches with Drain Punch, but is hit repeatedly. Cacnea ends up extremely tired, and still trying to continue, but James stops it. Making up his mind, he tells Cacnea to go with Gardenia, as he believes he will not let Cacnea reach its full potential. As he holds up Cacnea's Poké Ball, he fondly recalls his time it, and then says goodbye as he returns it. He then gives the Poké Ball to Gardenia and tells her to look after it, then runs off crying, with Jessie and Meowth in hot pursuit.
 
The next day at the Pokémon Center, the group says goodbye to Gardenia, with Turtwig and Cacnea by her side, while Team Rocket watch from the roof. James wishes one final goodbye to Cacnea from afar.

* [[Professor Oak's Big Pokémon Encyclopedia]]: {{p|Weavile}}
** Pokémon senryū: ながいつめ ニューっとひっかく マニューラよ''Nagai tsume, nyū 'tto hikkaku, Manyūra yo.''
* One of the boys calls [[James|Kojirō]] "Kosanji", which usually is used to refer to [[Butch|Kosaburō]]. In the dub, the boy calls James "Old man".
* The instrumental version of [[A Small Thing]] from ''[[M06|Jirachi: Wish Maker]]'' isand [[Team Rocket Forever]] are used as background music.
* [[Professor{{Ash}} Oak's Pokémon lecture]]:and {{pan|WeavileDawn}} narrate the preview for [[DP055|the next episode]].

* Dawn has her first battle with a Gym Leader.
* In the Latin American dub, [[James's Cacnea]] is referred to as female.
* This is the second time Ash has rebattled a Gym Leader after winning their badge. The first was against [[Wattson]] in ''[[AG059|Manectric Charge]]''.
* This is one of the few episodes of the {{series|Diamond & Pearl}} where [[Dawn's Piplup]] does not appear.
* Team Rocket{{TRT}} doesn't blast off in this episode.
* [[Gardenia]] states that {{m|Drain Punch}} is more powerful than {{m|Needle Arm}}. This was incorrect before [[Generation V]], as Drain Punch and Needle Arm's base powers were tied at 60. However, it is possible Gardenia was referring to the fact that Drain Punch also restores the user's HP, thus making it more ''useful'' than Needle Arm.
 
===Errors===
* Once again, the black part under Gardenia's mantle is invisible.
* After {{TP|James|Cacnea}} is hit by multiple {{m|Focus Punch}}es, Ash's Japanese voice can be heard.
 
=== Dub edits ===
* In the Latin American dub, [[James's Cacnea]] is referred to as female.
