On the way to [[Lilycove City]], our heroes notice a big banner in the middle of nowhere, with a bunch of {{p|Slakoth}} munching on bananas. {{an|Brock}} checks on the map, and sees that there is indeed a [[Banana Slakoth Garden|banana garden]] nearby, which is a habitat for Slakoth, who love bananas. {{Ash}} is also interested, because he also met [[Norman]]'s Slakoth, so they decide to check it out. [[Max]] and {{an|May}}, however, start to argue about if itsit's even worth checking out, but Brock then takes out his recipe booklet and shows them all the wonderful food that can be made from bananas, such as banana splits. May then gives in.
Suddenly, they come to an entrance to a big jungle-like reserve which must be the reserve. It seems to be closed, though but as Ash leans on the gate, to their surprise it moves, so they head on in. Oddly, it seems to be empty. While May is more interested in the bananas, which there seems to be no sign of, Max gets disappointed at the lack of Slakoth. Suddenly, a big, loud rumbling shakes the forest, scaring them out of their wits! Then a few more pounds tremble the earth under them, just when the ground begins to crack. Fortunately a young man comes running to their rescue. They all follow him, and get to a small house, which seems to be the reception office for the reserve.
As Marcel leads them to Slakoth's current hideout, he tries calling them, but they are too scared to come out. Then, he says he has a plan to get rid of Snorlax but he needs them for it, especially the lead one. But they are all too scared to move. So now Marcel tries to explain the plan and says that all he needs is one of them evolve into a Vigoroth and taking on Snorlax in a battle. While it is taking the Slakoth so long to decide and convince the leader to try, Marcel is about to give up, but the lead Slakoth jumps out of the bushes and agrees to do as Marcel wants. Marcel thanks it and they go off to train.
They start off with Marcel using Slakoth to face off in a battle against some of {{cat|Ash's Pokémon}}. Ash chooses Pikachu, {{AP|Torkoal}} and {{AP|Grovyle}} to face off against Slakoth. Pikachu uses {{m|Quick Attack}}. Slakoth uses {{m|Counter}} and knocks it back. Torkoal uses {{m|Flamethrower}} but Slakoth easily dodges it. Grovyle then tries {{m|Leaf Blade}}, but Slakoth counters with {{m|Scratch}}. As they continue the match all of Ash's Pokémon [[fainting|faint]] just as they had planned and Slakoth evolves! Now that Marcel has got a Vigoroth, they search for Snorlax.
They find Snorlax in a nearby grove eating banana bunches. Marcel challenges it for a rematch with Marcel's newly evolved Vigoroth. As he sends it to fight, Snorlax opens its mouth for a Yawn attack, but Vigoroth just pops the Yawn bubbles and keeps running, and hits it hard with a Scratch. Snorlax then fires a barrage of {{m|Hyper Beam}}s which Vigoroth is fast enough to dodge. Snorlax uses Yawn again, but it fails. Vigoroth knocks Snorlax back with another Scratch, nearly knocking it out. Vigoroth uses {{m|Focus Energy}}, but Snorlax is about to use {{m|Body Slam}}! Vigoroth then uses a {{m|Focus Punch}}, which knocks Snorlax out. Marcel then uses the Poké Ball, and successfully captures it. Marcel congratulates Vigoroth, and just then all the Slakoth who have been watching from behind the bushes come out and hugs both of them.
