==SynopsisBlurb==
After making out of Petalburg Woods, we find our heroes in [[Rinshin Town]]<!--http://www. {{an|May}} wants to go window shopping, {{Ash}} wants to get something to eat, {{an|Brock}} needs to stock up on supplies and [[Max]] is all for Pokémon huntingpokemon. May and Brock go to com/us/pokemon-episodes/06_21-taming-of-the shops while Ash and Max go out to eat.-shroomish/-->
<i>Ashes, May, Brock and Max have arrived at a small city on their way to Rustboro City. Brock decides to stock up on supplies, while Max is eager to go hunting for city dwelling Pokémon. Max soon stumbles upon a very frightened Shroomish who is hiding in an alleyway. Ash, Max, Pikachu and their new Shroomish friend head off to find a Pokémon Center. On their way they pass by a deserted mansion that is being torn down. There, the gang learns that not long ago most of the city was forest and that many, many Shroomish lived in the area. They also learn that strange things are going on at the mansion, and many people believe that it's haunted. A little investigation reveals that the mansion is actually inhabited by all of the Shroomish who used to live in the forest. When the forest was destroyed, they had nowhere else to go. All of the strange noises and smells that the construction workers were hearing were actually the Shroomish! The grandson of the owner decides to tear down the mansion as planned, but to convert all of that land into a forest for the Shroomish.</i>
 
Meanwhile, [[Jessie]], [[James]] and {{MTR}} are working as manual laborers on a building site in the city, tearing down an old, disused mansion. The other workers are worried by what seems to be ghosts in the mansion.==Plot==

Eventually, he gets his stuff and they're walking through the streets when they hear a woman mention a curse. May is instantly interested and eager to hear the tale of a haunted mansion. The woman explains that the property is known as the Green Lodge, and demolition workers have been quitting because of strange happenings. Brock gets scared, but May insists on going over to check out the haunted house.

Team Rocket decides they want revenge on the Shroomish and get hold of another vehicle. This one is airtight to stop the Stun Spores. They bash the mansion to force all the Shroomish out of the house, then pick them up with the machine one by one. The first Shroomish is angry and leads its comrades in a Stun Spore barrage, but since Team Rocket's vehicle is airtight, nothing gets through and that includes fresh air. The Stun Spores go off towards the city, but Brock's {{TP|Brock|Forretress}} heads it off with a {{m|Rapid Spin}} attack.
 
Jessie and James start feeling weird from lack of oxygen so Meowth opens the windows. This lets in fresh air, but also the Stun Spore. They get stunned and then all the Shroomish use {{m|Leech Seed}} to tie them up. May's {{TP|May|Torchic|Blaziken}} helps too, with its {{m|Ember}} attack. Together the Pokémon defeat Team Rocket again.
 
The man who owns the mansion explains it's too late to stop the destruction of the building. He says he'll replant the whole area full of trees so there will be a forest like there was before, and the Shroomish agree enthusiastically. Ash, May, Brock and Max wave goodbye to the man and the happy herd of Shroomish.
