We got this episode in Ireland recently, so here’s what it’s about.

The gang arrives at Trobitopolis city, on their way to the next Orange League gym. Team Rocket watch from a distance, and concoct  a scheme to capture Pikachu by blowing out the ground from under it, then capturing it in a pit. Predictably, it backfires, and both Team Rocket and Ash, Misty and Tracey are stranded in the sewers below Trobitopolis city.

As they wander around, searching for a way out, something taps Ash on the shoulder. It’s obvious that it’s either a Bulbasaur, Ivysaur or Venusaur using “Vine Whip”, but Ash immediately assumes it’s a monster and sends out his Bulbasaur to battle it. Unfortunately, the battle ends with Bulbasaur being draggged underwater by the mysterious Pokemon. When discovered by Officer Jenny, Ash refuses to leave his Bulbasaur, and Misty and Tracey have to hog-tie him to get him out of the sewers.

At the police station, we meet the Mayor, who is desperately trying to cover up the whole “monster” incident.He believes that he will not be re-elected if the citizens hear that a dangerous creature is roaming the sewers. Reluctantly, he lets them go. Once outside, we see various election posters and statues honouring the Mayor. They all have a strange symbol which Tracey discovers is the Mayor’s seal. Meanwhile, the mayor has organised a SWAT team to exterminate the creature, even though Jenny and Joy assure him that it’s illegal.

Back in the sewers, Team Rocket encounter the creature and, being their usual heroic selves, they run a mile. Moments later, they run into Ash, who has returned to look for his Bulbasaur. TR mistake him for a monster and use Weezing’s smokescreen to escape. Deciding that they have done enough running away, they pull scary faces to try and intimidate whatever it is they hear around the corner. It turns out to be the SWAT team, who retaliate by opening fire on TR.

Misty and Togepi become the monsters’ next victims when it grabs them and yanks them underwater. Ash sends out Muk to navigate the sewers, and their journey eventually takes them to a dead-end tunnel. Tracey spots that the tunnel continues underwater, so Ash dives in and continues to search.

The Mayor has now decided to seal off the sewers until after the election, trapping everyone underground, while Ash finally discovers the identity of the monster: it’s a Bulbasaur who has been stranded in the sewers for years. They notice a collar around it’s neck which bears the Mayor’s seal, and they come to the conclusion that he must have abandoned it. They confront him and he admits that he got rid of it when it wouldn’t evolve. The SWAT team shows up and prepares to terminate the Bulbasaur on the grounds that it is holding the Mayor hostage. Pikachu shocks the hell out of them, while Ash’s Bulbasaur Vine Whips both them and the Mayor away.

When it is all over and done with, the people of the city have seen what kind of person the Mayor is, and Jenny is confident that he will not be re-elected. She thanks Ash for all he has done, and points the gang in the direction of the next gym.

All in all, this was not a great episode, and only the usual antics by Team Rocket save it from mediocrity. I’d give it 2 out of 5.
