Meanwhile, {{TRT}} 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. May drags Brock off to look at fashion and accessories. He's extremely bored. He would rather be buying medicine and ingredients for [[Pokémon food]], but May says that can wait. 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.
 
MeanwhileAfter eating a burger, [[Jessie]]Ash and Max head off to the alleyways in the city, where they peer in looking for Pokémon and spot a {{p|Shroomish}}, who doesn't look too happy.

Inside, they find Shroomish saying "mish, mish" very sadly. Two other Shroomish emerge and they all start talking, looking frightened. Pikachu goes to talk to them, while the humans decide that they must be upset because they'll have no home when the mansion is torn down. Team Rocket turns up to try to capture Pikachu, with the help of {{TP|James|Cacnea}} and {{TP|Jessie|Seviper}}. A whole herd of Shroomish stampede over them and use Stun Spore. Afterwards, Ash sees a picture on the table and they realize it's the man and his grandfather playing with the Shroomish.
 
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}} burns through Team Rocket's giant net/basket with its {{m|Ember}} attack to free the other Shroomish. Afterwards Pikachu uses {{m|Thunder}} to defeat Team Rocket.
 
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.
