'''To Master the Onixpected!''' (Japanese: '''してんのうシバとうじょう!''' ''Enter {{tt|Four Heavenly Kings|Elite Four}} {{tt|Siba|Bruno}}!'') is the 71st episode of the [[Pokémon anime]]. It was first broadcastaired in Japan on November 19, 1998 and in the United States on October 11, 1999.
With three weeks left until the [[Pokémon League]] competition {{Ash}} has fallen behind in training. On the couch of Ash's home, Ash and {{an|Brock}} watch the [[Elite Four]]'s [[Bruno]] battling a {{pkmn|Trainer}} with his {{p|Hitmonchan}}. As Bruno commands a {{m|ThunderPunch}}, the TV is switched off. {{an|Misty}} chastises Ash for goofing off. Ash tells {{an|Misty}} they were studying the tape of Bruno. Brock adds that they were learning the 'powers of Pokémon' despite not knowing what those power were. Ash comments that Bruno could train him to learn the power. However Brock and Misty lament that the famous Bruno wouldn't waste his time with them. Ash confidently states that if they knew how to find him then Bruno would definitely teach him. Just then [[Delia Ketchum|Ash's mother]] enters telling the group that she knows where to find Bruno. Apparently Bruno's secret training ground is on [[Mt. Hideaway]]. Ash jumps up and tells his mother not to make dinner as they are going up to Mt. Hideaway.
Now on their way to the mountain, Misty tells the group that Mt. Hideaway appears to be only 7 miles away. Ash and Brock, completely exhausted, convince Misty that she should rest. The group rest at a house where an old lady brings them food and drink. Ash asks her if she knows of a Pokémon Trainer named Bruno training around the area. The old lady doesn't recognize the name but tells the trio that Pokémon Trainers have been stealing her meatball kebabs. As Ash and Brock eat, a bunch of windchimes start rattling. The lady angrily tells them that the thieves must be back again. Push broom in hand the lady runs out followed by Ash and company. They see three hermits running off with sacks in hand. The lady gives chase as Ash recognizes the bandits as {{TRT}}. As they are about to start their motto, Meowth pulls out a remote and speeds it up, leaving Jessie and James exhausted. After this they tell Ash that because they always get beaten by him they have decided to become hermits and live off the land. Meowth adds they're also living off the old lady's meatball kebabs. The enraged old lady gives Team Rocket a beating with her broom and the troublesome trio run away leaving behind the kebabs. The lady tells the heroes that the mountain is known for [[Giant Pokémon|overgrown]] {{p|Onix}}. Apparently the soil makes them grow larger. The lady assures them that, despite their size, the Onix are very gentle.
