==Plot==
As a part of their extracurricular lesson in [[Kanto]], {{Ash}} and {{ashcl}} from [[Pokémon School]] have arrived at the [[Cerulean Gym]] to learn about [[Gym]] {{pkmn|battle}}s. Upon entering the Gym, the group notices something standing in the middle of the battlefield, which Ash quickly recognizes as {{TP|Misty|Psyduck}}. {{an|Misty}} thanks Psyduck for looking after the Gym while she was away, and then properly welcomes Ash's class to her Gym. While {{AP|Pikachu}} and {{TP|Brock|Geodude}} exchange high -fives with Psyduck, Ash can barely contain his excitement. [[Professor Kukui]] properly introduces Misty as the {{type|Water}} [[Gym Leader]] of the Cerulean Gym and {{an|Brock}} as the former {{type|Rock}} [[Gym Leader]] of the [[Pewter Gym]]. With the formalities over with, Kukui tells everybody to have some intense battles.
 
Kukui proceeds to explain how in Kanto, a [[Pokémon Trainer]] can travel from Gym to Gym to challenge Gym Leaders, and, if victorious against one, will earn that Gym's respective [[Badge]]. To demonstrate, Misty and Brock introduce their respective Gym Badges, the {{badge|Cascade}} and the {{badge|Boulder}}. {{an|Kiawe}} asks Ash if he collected all the Badges in Kanto, which Ash confirms. However, Misty and Brock remind him that [[EP005|he]] [[EP007|got]] their Badges out of pity, causing his classmates to look at him questioningly. To avoid answering, Ash takes a few steps back and changes the subject, mentioning how Trainers with eight Badges are allowed to challenge the [[Pokémon League]]. With the embarrassing question avoided, Ash steps back forward and explains that the Pokémon League is a [[Pokémon League Conference|battle tournament]] full of strong Trainers. When Kukui asks who wants to battle Brock or Misty, everybody raises their hands. With everybody throwing suggestions who they want to battle, Misty decides to organize [[Multi Battle]]s, allowing them all to have battles against them. First, {{an|Mallow}} and {{an|Lana}} team up against Misty, with {{TP|Mallow|Steenee}} and {{TP|Lana|Popplio}} facing Psyduck. As {{Rotom}} starts recording the battle, Mallow kicks things off with {{m|Magical Leaf}}, which successfully hits Psyduck. Lana continues by having Popplio use {{m|Bubble Beam}}, which also hits. Misty counterattacks by having Psyduck use {{m|Water Gun}}, but Popplio creates a balloon, which absorbs the Water-type move. Popplio the launches the balloon at Psyduck, who gets trapped inside the water-filled bubble. Misty mentions that her Psyduck is strong when in a pinch and orders a {{m|Confusion}}, but nothing happened. Ash, unsurprised, explains how Misty's Psyduck is a bit slow. Mallow has Steenee use Magical Leaf again, which bursts the balloon and causes Psyduck to fall on its head. Misty, knowing that the ensuing headache will allow Psyduck to unleash its hidden {{t|Psychic}} potential, isn't worried at all. And indeed, Psyduck then proceeds to hurl Steenee and Popplio into the air with Confusion. However, before anything else can happen, Misty tells Psyduck to bring Steenee and Popplio back down, and Kukui declares the battle being over. As Misty compliments Mallow and Lana, Psyduck finally registers the impact on its head, flailing in pain. While Rotom and Mallow sweatdrop, both Lana and Misty admire Psyduck's cuteness, with Misty even proceeding to hug it.
