The Battle Club and Tepig’s Choice!

Ash and Iris are on their way to Striaton City Gym. At Accumula Town, they find the Battle Club owned by Don George. After watching a battle between a Servine and a Dewott, Ash challenges the Dewott’s owner just before a security breach occurs. Ash sees a Pokémon’s dark shape on the security tape, and mistakes it for an Umbreon, only to find an abandoned Tepig with a rope tied around its mouth, during which Team Rocket arrives to raid the storage to capture Pikachu.
