Ash, Misty, and Brock arrive at Kurt's house and finally deliver the GS Ball to him. As he needs time to study it, they must find something to do. Since the gym is still closed, they decide to watch Kurt work and create Pokeballs. He makes them out of Apricorns, a special type of fruit that only grows in the Johto region. Kurt gives them each their own Fast Ball. He says he will make them more if they go and pick more Apricorn. As he only has a White Apricorn tree in his yard, his granddaughter Maisy takes them into the mountains outside of town to pick all different kinds of Apricorns. However, Team Rocket is not far behind and they want the Apricorns for themselves.
