The group decides to split up for the afternoon - May and Brock will go to the shops while Ash and Max gofind outsomewhere to eat. Meanwhile, [[Jessie]], [[James]] and {{MTRTRT}} 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 girlwoman 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, whereand demolition workers have been quitting because of strange happenings. Brock gets scared, but sheMay insists on going over to check out the "haunted house".
After eating a burger, 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. Max wants to feed it and make friends with it, so Ash hands overhim some [[Pokémon food]]. Shroomish is suspicious and uses {{m|Stun Spore}}; causing Ash and Max quickly backto awayretreat. Afterwards, Ash takes out some of Brock's Pokémon food, stacks it on a piece of paper and sets it in front of the Shroomish. Shroomish still doesn't want to eat it, until {{AP|Pikachu}} jumps down from Ash's shoulder and takes a piece to show that it's safe to eat. Shroomish tries the food and loves it. 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 {{pkmn|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. Shroomish is very happy with this. Max picks up Shroomish and they head off.
Brock and May are inspecting the hauntedGreen mansionLodge, and Brock comments that they really should let it go. May's still very excited about the prospect of ghosts, so she approaches the manor and Brock reluctantly follows her through the entrance gates.

* When the {{p|Shroomish}} start grouping up, just after {{TRT}}'s attack, Jessie calls them {{p|Foongus}}, and James states they are {{p|Amoonguss}}. These names would later be assigned to two Pokémon of [[Generation V]], also based on mushrooms. Coincidentally, James would catch an {{TP|James|Amoonguss}}.
[[File:AG009 Error.png|thumb|200px|Cacnea's miscoloration]]
* [[James's Cacnea]] had the three dark green diamonds under its mouth and the four point shape at the top of its head colored black like its mouth when it was attacking the herd of {{p|Shroomish}}. It can also be seen for the top of its head during the first time the camera looks at Team Rocket after the start of the Stun Spore attack inside the mansion.
* In the first shot of {{an|May}} window shopping, the mannequins had heads. In the second shot, they didn't.
* When May sends out {{TP|May|Torchic}}, its voice is heard but its mouth doesn't move.
* The [ blurb for the episode] misspells {{Ash}}'s name as ''Ashes'' in the first sentence.
** This has since been corrected.
