==Plot==
After making it out of Petalburg Woods, we find our heroes in [[Rinshin Town]]. {{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 hunting. May and Brock go to the shops while Ash and Max go out to eat. 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. 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 girl mention a curse. May is instantly interested and eager to hear the tale of a haunted mansion, where workers have been quitting because of strange happenings. Brock gets scared but she insists on going over to check out the "haunted house".

Ash and Max are surprised because Shroomish is in the city instead of the forest, where it normally would be. They think it might have been separated from its Trainer and maybe they should take it to a [[Pokémon Center]]. Max takes out a handkerchief and ties it around the top of Shroomish's head, as a gift.

Brock and May are inspecting the haunted mansion, and Brock comments that they really should let it go. May's still very excited about the prospect of ghosts.
 
Ash, Max, Pikachu and Shroomish stop in front of an old mansion. They're spotted by {{TRT}}, and Jessie and James immediately drop the log they're holding to hatch plan to catch Pikachu. Meowth is left holding the log, which drops on top of him. Shroomish, still in Max's arms, gets very distressed and runs off. Ash and Max follow it. Shroomish goes into the mansion through a broken window. Ash and Max see May and Brock just outside where Shroomish went in, and they're surprised to meet each other there. They are explaining what happened when a man comes up to them and tells them that they should not be there. He says it's impossible that there could have been a Shroomish, explaining that when he was a boy and his {{TP|Alex|grandfather}} owned the mansion there were Shroomish everywhere. He loved playing with them as a kid but they all went away as the forest disappeared. Ash and Max insist, so he decides he'll have to go inside and see for himself. The others follow him.
 
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}} 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.
