Ash begins his search for Pikachu when he reunites with Brock on the way. Later on, Ash captures a Starly. While Ash meets Professor Rowan for the first time, Dawn leaves the laboratory. The two of them then begin to track each other down with the aid of Professor Rowan, Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny.
