==Plot==
While they are still in [[Blackthorn City]], {{cleanup|section|width=50%Ash}} and friends are sitting on [[Clair]]'s outdoor balcony at the Gym, eating breakfast with her. After some discussion, Ash plans to go to [[New Bark Town]] to register for the Johto [[Silver Conference]] now that he has all eight [[Badge]]s even though the Silver Conference is in three months. {{TRT}} has plans of their own, and they decide to steal Ash's Badges for their own purposes. {{MTR}} and [[James]] want to sell the Badges, while [[Jessie]] wants to enter the Silver Conference using them. In the midst of their discussion Team Rocket's food is stolen, with Wobbuffet receiving the blame.

Jessie and James pose as a reporter and cameraman just as Ash and friends are walking out of the gates. Jessie takes Ash's jacket and hands it to Meowth, who is hidden behind a photographer's background, whilst James puts Ash into an oversized red coat and golden crown. Ash poses for several photos, and Meowth and Wobbuffet are admiring Ash's now stolen Badges. Jessie then returns Ash's jacket and begins to walk away. Ash utters the word prepared, and suddenly, Jessie and James stop in their tracks attempting to resist the urge to say their [[Team Rocket mottos|motto]]. Ash mentions the word trouble, and Team Rocket instinctively reveal their true identities. Meowth and James tell Ash that they have come for his Badges. Ash peers inside his coat, noticing that the eight Badges have been replaced with bottle caps.
 
Meanwhile, {{TP|Jessie|Wobbuffet}} meets a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Wynaut}} in the woods who steals the Badges from Team Rocket. When Ash realizes his loss of Badges, he goes through the list of the Gym Leaders he fought to get them. Ash and friends givesgive chase to Team Rocket, while {{TP|Jessie|Wobbuffet}} is further ahead with the Badge case of Badges and decides to rest on a marked ledge with a 'Jessie' flag on it. Wobbuffet then moves from its position, smelling then locating red fruitBerry-filled trees. Wobbuffet imagines Jessie, James, and Meowth happily thanking it and stuffing their faces with the fruitBerry. It fills the Badge carrying case with the fruitBerries as a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Wynaut}} watches hidden behind some shrubs. The Wynaut's appendages reach over and grab the case filled with the berriesBerries and Ash's Badges. Wobbuffet quickly notices and the two Pokémon have some sort ofan interchange. Jessie and the gang suddenly arrive, startling Wobbuffet and giving Wynaut time to disappearflee. Unable to locate the case, Wobbuffet tries to explain what happened, with Meowth translating its accounts and Wobbuffet drawing a picture of Wynaut in the dirt. James believes that a Wynautthe drawing bywas Wobbuffet wasof his childhood nanny, but after Wobbuffet states that the thief was blue, Jessie believes a {{p|Wooper}} stole the Badges, and they try to find one.
 
While Ash tries on his own to try to find the Badges. Clair mentions that Ash could have the Badges reissued. Ash acknowledges this, though states those particular Badges had special meaning and he begins to reminisce about all of his Gym challenges in the Johto region, from [[Falkner]] through to Clair.
 
Team Rocket suddenly stumble across a Wooper sitting on a rock in the middle of a running stream. She attempts to grab it with her bare hands, thoughbut it dodges the trio and runs into the forest with Jessie, James and Meowth trailing behind. Meanwhile, Ash calls upon {{AP|Noctowl}} and {{AP|Bayleef}}, andto Clairsearch ridingthrough herthe Dragonairforest, searchalongside aboveClair thewho forestis canopy,riding her [[Clair's Dragonair|Dragonair]]. Misty and Brock stay together whilst Ash goes in a different direction for oto find Team Rocket. Noctowl and Bayleef find Wynaut and, the Badges, and some berries it has in a boxcase. Wynaut is having trouble opening the case, so Bayleef lends itits vines and returns the case back to Wynaut. With glee the blue Pokémon tips the contents of the case on toonto the ground, and to Bayleef's astonishment, Ash's Badges also fall out. Noctowl flies off, locating Ash by a stream and notifies him of the find.
 
Bayleef has since gathered the Badges on a large leaf. Wynaut's snack is suddenly interrupted when Wooper followed by Team Rocket appear. Team Rocket state Wooper led them to the sthere. {{TP|Jessie|Arbok}} and {{TP|James|Victreebel}} are sent out to deal with the situation. Bayleef jumps backwards holding both Wooper and the leaf of Badges to avoid Arbok's {{m|Poison Sting}}. Victreebel's {{m|Vine Whip}} trips the fleeing Bayleef, separating it from the Badges. Jessie again calls for a Poison Sting attack, but the Wynaut's {{m|Counter}} intercepts, sending the attack back towards Arbok. Just as Meowth retrieves the Badges from the ground. Ash arrives on the scene. AnotherArbok uses Poison Sting again, this time allowing Team Rocket to escape to their awaiting Meowth balloon. Bayleef's Vine Whip send Ash hurtlingflying towards Team Rocket. He narrowly misses the balloon's basket, and begins falling to the ground. AshNoctowl slipsquickly fromtries Noctowl'sto catch him by the clawsbag, but isit rescuedslips byfrom its grip. Clair and Dragonair then arrive to the scene and manage to rescue Ash.
 
Ash gets Noctowl to pick Pikachu up from the ground, reaching the escaping Team Rocket soon after. Pikachu lets out a {{m|Thunderbolt}}, and the balloon bursts sending Team Rocket flying. Ash and crew manage to rescue seven of the eight Badges, with only the Rising Badge missing. The group disperse once again to find the missing BadgeBadBadge in the surrounding greenery. Wynaut appears from the bushes, with the Rising Badge in hand, and hands it to Bayleef. Bayleef then gives the Badge to Ash who is searching nearby, andwhen Bayleef tries to give credit to Wynaut hasfor disappearedfinding it, it disappears. A ship carrying logs suddenly travels past them through a stream nearby with Wynaut waving from it, though by the time Ash looks up, both the ship and Wynaut have passed through. Misty, Clair, and Brock regathergather near Ash, where he shows them histhat the Badge has been relocatedrecovered.
 
The group later talks to [[Professor Oak]] via the video phone in the Pokémon Center. Ash announces that he has all eight of his Johto Badges. The call ends abruptly, however, when [[Ash's Snorlax]], {{AP|Kingler}}, {{AP|Bulbasaur}}, and {{AP|Muk}} become too enthusiastic, crushing Professor Oak. Now that Ash has all eight Badges, Clair tells Ash to follow a road to the sea, then to follow the coastline to reach New Bark Town, which she estimates will take a day or so, to register for the Johto League Silver Conference. The group wave goodbye to Clair and begin to head towards their next destination.
