==SynopsisBlurb==
{{Ash}} {{ashfr|and friends}} admire the nice [[Johto]] scenery when they spot a {{p|Houndoom}} delivering something<!--http://www. At the same time, {{TRT}} is also admiring the scenery from the [[Team Rocket's mechas|Meowth Balloon]]pokemon. Team Rocket spots Ash and his friends, so they interrupt them with their {{motto|usual lines}}. [[James]] sends out {{TP|James|Weezing}} and tells it to use {{m|SmokeScreen}}, making it impossible for Ash and friends to see. [[Jessie]] then tells her {{TP|Jessie|Arbok}} to attack {{AP|Pikachu}}, but Pikachu is ready and fends it off with a {{m|Thunderbolt}}. With all the action, {{TP|Misty|Togepi}} gets away from {{an|Misty}} and ends up near Weezing, so to get away it uses {{m|Metronome}}, which ends up {{m|Teleport}}ing it far away. Team Rocket eventually loses to Ash as he sent out {{AP|Chikorita}} to cut a hole through their balloon with its {{m|Razor Leaf}} and they were sent blasting off again. com/us/pokemon-episodes/04_23-houndooms-special-delivery/-->
<i>When Team Rocket attacks our heroes as they travel through a mountain pass, Weezing's Smoke Screen attack separates Togepi and Misty. Togepi wanders away as Misty, Ash and Brock try to locate the pint-sized Pokémon. Finding Togepi scared and alone, a passing Houndoom becomes its temporary care-taker and brings Togepi home to its trainer. Will Misty ever be reunited with Togepi?</i>
 
The same Houndoom from before hears Togepi's crying and rescues it from atop a big tree. Houndoom sees that it is still sad, and gets an apple for it. A {{p|Pinsir}} then tries to attack Togepi, but Houndoom scares it off with its attacks. Houndoom tries to leave Togepi again, but hears its crying and comes back again. This time Houndoom puts Togepi on its back and continues on with its new friend.==Plot==
{{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} find themselves surrounded by a magnificent mountain landscape. As they admire the scenery, they then spot a {{p|Houndoom}} with a satchel on its back as it makes a delivery. Ash checks his [[Pokédex]] for further information, and {{an|Misty}} is a little scared of Houndoom's intimidating appearance. Meanwhile, {{TRT}} are also enjoying the mountain air from their [[Team Rocket’s mechas|balloon]] and take time out to enjoy some tea. They each take a sip when [[Jessie]] realizes that they are not fulfilling their required [[Team Rocket]] duties. Her teammates also agree, and soon [[James]] spots their next target – [[Ash's Pikachu]].
