Ash, Misty, and Tracey finally arrive on Trovita Island, the location of the third Orange League Gym. However, the Gym Leader, Rudy, is too busy focusing on Misty to care about Ash's gym request. After a day of begging, Rudy finally agrees, but Ash must a test first. First he must knock down targets that appear while he travels down a river. After completing that, they move onto the main event, a 3-on-3 battle, and if Ash wins he earns another badge. Meanwhile, Rudy also asks Misty to stay on the island with him, and she is considering it, but will she stay, or continue traveling with Ash?
