{{Ash}}, {{an|Serena}}, and {{an|Bonnie}} are talking to {{an|Clemont}} via video phone, and Clemont introduces to them his newest invention: a machine that detects dirt and the like and automatically cleans it up. However, the machine mistakes Clemont for dirt himself, and it explodes as he tries to resist it. Soon after, Ash, Serena, and Bonnie continue their travels to [[Lumiose City]]. As Ash decides to train, he begins to think about possible strategies to counter Clemont's Pokémon. Suddenly, {{an|Tierno}} steps out from behind a tree and greets the three of them. After again expressing his admiration and affection for Serena, Tierno notices Clemont's absence, when Ash explains that Clemont is the Lumiose [[Gym Leader]]. Tierno explains that he battled [[Clembot]] for his {{Badge|Voltage}} and won, and then he agrees to have a training battle with Ash.
In a clearing in the woods, Ash calls out {{AP|Sliggoo}} to battle against Tierno. Tierno then shows Ash his team of Pokémon: a {{p|Politoed}}, {{pTP|Tierno|Wartortle}}, {{p|Ludicolo}}, and {{p|Hitmontop}}, with Wartortle having evolved from his {{p|Squirtle}}. Ash and Tierno agree to have a [[Double Battle]], with Tierno bringing out his {{p|Raichu}} to partner with Wartortle. Ash decides to have {{AP|Pikachu}} partner with Sliggoo. Just before the battle begins, however, a strange machine rolls out of the bushes and grabs Pikachu. An automated message from {{TRT}} plays from the [[Team Rocket's mechas|mecha]], bragging about it and explaining their newest attempt to capture Pikachu. As the mecha tries to drop Pikachu into a cage, Sliggoo uses {{m|Dragon Breath}} to force it to release Pikachu. Suddenly, however, it turns around and immediately grabs Raichu and Wartortle instead. While Pikachu is thrown off the moment he tries to help, Sliggoo manages to grab hold of one of the arms, but all three Pokémon are hurled into the cage and the device releases a pink gas to facilitate its escape.
While en route to where Team Rocket is waiting, Wartortle and Raichu try without success to break the bars of the cage, while Sliggoo cowers, frightened. Meanwhile, {{AP|Fletchinder}} searches without success for the mecha, and the group splits up to continue searching. Ash and Serena head one way, while Tierno and Bonnie head the other way. When the mecha arrives at where Team Rocket is relaxing, [[Jessie]], [[James]], and {{MTR}} are dismayed to discover that it had responded to Raichu's internal electricity instead of Pikachu's and had captured the wrong Pokémon. Raichu and Wartortle attack James and Jessie from inside the cage using Thunderbolt and {{m|Water Gun}}, respectively, and Jessie responds in frustration by having {{TP|Jessie|Pumpkaboo}} attack them with {{m|Shadow Ball}}. However, the attack hits the line connecting the cage to the machine and the cage rolls away with Raichu, Wartortle, and Sliggoo still inside it. Jessie then apathetically orders the mecha to resume its search for Pikachu.
