==Plot==
As {{Ash}}, {{an|Misty}}, {{an|Brock}}, {{Todd}}, {{AP|Pikachu}}, and {{TP|Misty|Togepi}} are enjoying a nice lunch until, Misty points out that Ash has not won a [[Gym]] [[Badge]] in a while. After nearly choking on his food and washing it down with a glass of water, Ash claims he wins all his battles with skill, and then challenges Misty to a [[Pokémon {{pkmn|battle]]}}. Todd steps in, takes pictures of Pikachu, thenand tells Ash that he should take the [[Pokémon League]] Admissions Exam.
 
The group arrives at the Pokémon League Admissions Exam building, so Ash signs up and gets the testing number 7. Nearby, [[Jessie]], disguised as a schoolgirl, complains that she didn't get number 7, causing Ash to briefly suspect her. Then, [[Nurse Joy]] enters and Brock follows her. Ash then is then told by the head instructor to leave all his {{ball|Poké}}s at the counter, as well as temporarily leave Pikachu in Misty's care. Shortly, Nurse Joy tells Ash, Misty and Brock that she and signed up for the exam because it was a convenient way for her to become a [[Pokémon Master]]. She clarified that she is from [[Fuschia City]], and her sister is the Nurse Joy in [[Vermilion City]]. Soon after, [[James]] walks in, disguised as a schoolboy with glasses, but quickly heads for the counter once Ash sees him. When the head instructor reads James's registration form and calls out his name, James tells him to keep quiet. But unfortunately, Jessie hears this and takes James outside. Once outside, Jessie takes off her glasses and asks James what he is doing there. James confidently says that he too wants to become a Pokémon Master, as well as ask Jessie what she is doing here. Jessie explains that she wants to add another talent to her collection. Suddenly, {{MTR}} shows up and scratches both their faces. James quickly throws Meowth a ball of yarn, then runs off with Jessie back inside for the exam.

Unfortunately, the head instructor expels James for bringing out two Pokémon at once.
 
It is Ash's turn to face the head instructor, who sends out a {{p|Flareon}}. Ash pulls out his first Poké Ball, which reveals a {{p|Weezing}}, much to Ash's shock and displeasure. The instructor has Flareon use {{m|Flamethrower}}, which Weezing proceeds to dodge. Coming up with an idea, Ash tells Weezing to counter with {{m|Smog}}, which explodes upon being hit by the Flamethrower, throwing Flareon backwards. Flareon then uses {{m|Leer}}, but Ash has Weezing use {{m|Smokescreen}} to hide, then follow up with a Tackle, knocking Flareon out. As Misty comments on Ash being good at battling after all, Brock comments that even {{TRT}} could win if they battled like that. Meanwhile, Team Rocket is taking notes of Ash's fighting strategy. Next, the head instructor sends out a {{p|Jolteon}}, and Ash sends out an Arbok. Jolteon uses {{m|Agility}}, but Arbok stops it with {{m|Glare}}. Then, Arbok uses {{m|Wrap}} but gets hurt by Jolteon's spikes. At this point, while Arbok is wincing in pain, Jolteon shakes off the Glare attack and finishes it off with {{m|Thunder}}.
 
For the final round, Ash opens his last Poké Ball to reveal a {{p|Meowth}}, while the head instructor sends out a {{p|Vaporeon}}. Meowth tries to use {{m|Fury Swipes}}, but gets {{status|Freeze|frozen}} in its tracks when Vaporeon uses {{m|Ice Beam}}, giving the victory to the head instructor. Team Rocket's Meowth scratches Ash's face and frees his fellow Meowth. The head instructor is impressed by the talking Meowth, so he goes to capture him. However, Team Rocket returns with James's Pikachu, Ivysaur, and Charizard. TheWhen the head instructor demands that they return those Pokémon immediately., Jessie and James then say their {{motto}} and remove their disguises. Then, Team Rocket orders Ivysaur to use {{m|Vine Whip}}, Charizard to use Flamethrower, and Pikachu to use {{m|Thunder}}. Before the Pokémon attack, the head instructor quickly orders them to turn around, causing Pikachu, Ivysaur, and Charizard to attack Team Rocket. Ash realizes that those Pokémon listened to the head instructor because he {{pkmn|training|raised}} them. Then, Ash orders his Meowth, Weezing, and Arbok to also stop Team Rocket. Weezing uses {{m|Explosion}}, sending Team Rocket blasting off again.
 
Back inside the PLAE building, the head instructor tells the whole class that due to Team Rocket's interference, they have to do the entire exam all over again.

The Meowth then talks, revealing that it is Team Rocket's Meowth, and jumps out of the exam instructor's hands into searchgo ofafter Jessie and James.
