Now that Chikorita has evolved into Bayleef, it is bigger then it once was. However, it has yet to realize how much stronger it has gotten. After tackling Ash a few times, he yells at Bayleef, and it runs away. Everyone goes off in search of her. Meanwhile, Bayleef slips and falls into the river. Our heroes follow the scent, which leads them to an old woman's house. Ash is relieved to see Bayleef, but Bayleef wants nothing to do with Ash. Now Ash must prove to Bayleef that he still cares about her, and fend off Team Rocket.
