A {{p|Carvanha}} swims near Team Rocket and James attempts to catch it with his bazooka-powered net, only for it to bite through the net. Meowth notices Mimikyu is missing and wonders where it is when he spots its disguise in the water and soon spots its body nearby which scares him. Jessie and James soon find him in the water and his soul comes back. He warns them about Mimikyu but by now Mimikyu is back in its disguise, but now with its drawn-on face running from being in the water, appearing even more horrifying than ever. {{TP|Jessie|Wobbuffet}} is fishing, surrounded by several Corsola, but fishes up nothing but a sandal. Trying a new strategy with ambush, James puts on some scuba gear with a Corsola-shaped helmet but Meowth and Jessie decline to go with him as he enters the water. After swimming some distance, James bobs about on the surface hoping that Carvanha will come back but spots several {{p|Alomomola}} swimming about. As he goes to lure them in, a Mareanie attaches itself to his helmet and attacks him, cracking the glass as he struggles underwater.
Back on dry land, James has pulled the helmet with Mareanie still attached as Meowth wonders what has happened. After explaining, Team Rocket looks at Mareanie while James consults his guidebook, discovering that it is very poisonous. To James's horror, Jessie suggests catching it as they could use a {{t|Poison}} type which causes Mareanie to attach itself to James's head and leaves him {{status|poison}}ed; his face turns purple with yellow sclerasclerae, causing James to resemble a Mareanie himself, which the wild Mareanie becomes enamored by, and starts to chase James around.
Professor Kukui decides it is time for Pokémon observation where everyone must find and observe a target Pokémon. Whilst Lana goes underwater and Kiawe up a tree, Sophocles opts to study a {{p|Staryu}} and {{p|Shellder}}, Lillie observes a {{p|Mankey}} and {{p|Primeape}}, and Mallow observes two {{p|Pichu}}. James is still trying to escape from Mareanie, wondering why it is following him. Translating, Meowth explains that Mareanie is in love with James's appearance, but Jessie isn't impressed. Ash is still looking for a Pokémon to observe when he comes across Team Rocket. Taking the opportunity to capture Pikachu, Jessie orders Mimikyu to use {{m|Shadow Ball}} which Pikachu intercepts with {{m|Iron Tail}}. Meowth and Wobbuffet get involved but are attacked by {{m|Thunderbolt}} when Mareanie gets involved and attacks with {{m|Spike Cannon}}. Pikachu dodges and James realises Mareanie is battling for them. Ash and Pikachu get distracted allowing Mimikyu to attack with {{m|Shadow Claw}}. Rowlet attempts to assist with {{m|Leafage}} but is hit by Mareanie's {{m|Sludge Bomb}} leaving Rowlet poisoned. Mareanie's Sludge Bomb leaves a cloud of dust allowing Mimikyu to attack again leaving Pikachu and Rowlet defeated and giving Team Rocket victory but as they celebrate, Bewear jumps out of the water and carries them back to its den. With Team Rocket gone, Ash tends to his Pokémon.
