On the way to the next town, Ash sees a Hitmonchan nearby. Ash starts battling it with Pikachu, but then the trainer, Anthony, comes and Hitmonchan easily beats Pikachu. The two of them leave and head to a gym to train. Anthony's daughter shows up and begs for them to enter the P-1 Grand Prix so that they can beat her father. She tells them that he is more concerned with training then his family and his daughter really misses him. Ash and Brock agree to enter with Primeape and Geodude. Meanwhile, Team Rocket decide to enter the tournament for the prize, and steal a trainer's Hitmonlee to enter.
