Episode plot

The heroes are quite tired and exhausted, walking during a hot day. Iris notices a southern wind is blowing and senses there will be a rain. Ash bets if that happens, he will walk on his hands. Iris is certain of that and suddenly, thunder cracks as dark clouds appear. The heroes run away from the rain, to a mansion. They knock on the door, but nobody answers and the door mysteriously opens. The heroes enter the mansion, while Team Rocket observes from screens their plan to make a base of operations failed. Jessie proposes to capture Pikachu and chase the twerps away. James orders Yamask to order a bunch of Litwick, which Yamask befriended, to chase the twerps away and capture Pikachu. Yamask does so and leads the Litwick.

The heroes decide to remain inside the mansion until the rain stops. Iris tells she told them, so Ash and Pikachu walk on hands, since they lost the bet, making Iris claim Ash as a kid. The window opens, so Cilan closes and locks it, though the window opens again. Suddenly, a table is being pushed, though Iris and Ash dodge it. Iris feels they are being watched, but Cilan tells it is just the wind. Ash and Cilan are terrified and order Iris to turn around. Iris does so and sees objects, forming a man that float and attack them. The heroes head for the exit, which is barred. The heroes dodge the objects and run off. Team Rocket is surprised, as they ordered to chase the twerps away, though the exit is blocked. Meowth goes to tell Yamask to clarify that to the Litwick.

The heroes are at a dining room and notice the table being set, thinking someone is living there. Suddenly, they begin to float around, then are attacked by dining tools and are sent out of the room. They see moving clothes, that spin them around, so Pikachu uses Thunderbolt to stop that. Suddenly, four of Litwick run away, but one trips over, so the heroes surround it. Ash scans it via the Pokédex, which mysteriously logs out. The heroes claim they only came in to find a shelter for the storm, but have no idea what is Litwick trying to say. They go for a while and encounter Team Rocket's Meowth with a bunch of Litwick. Meowth and Litwick run off, making the heroes wonder what is Team Rocket up to now. Meowth came to Jessie and James, reporting what happened. Team Rocket sees they appear exhausted and think it is because they work too much, though they intend to catch Pikachu.

Suddenly, they notice the flames on Litwick are larger than before. Yamask repeats the plan to Litwick, who have an evil smile on their faces. As the heroes search for Team Rocket, they get attacked by Litwick, who pushes the tables and causes chandeliers to fall down. After the chase, the heroes see Axew and Litwick are gone. Team Rocket, however, notice Yamask is gone and hope it is looking after Litwick. The heroes search for Axew, while Pikachu gets abducted by a Litwick. The heroes notice Pikachu is gone, too. Team Rocket contact Dr. Zager and tell them they found the mansion as a base of operations, inhabited by Litwick. Dr. Zager warns them Litwick may steal the life energies of people and Pokémon, though he wanted to make a research on these Pokémon. Suddenly, he logs out, while James and Jessie see the Litwick have been stealing their life energies, making them exhausted. They see Meowth has been lost.

Meowth has trouble walking and encounters a Litwick, who uses Psychic to control him. As the heroes try to search Pikachu and Axew, Cilan asks of Ash to run the Pokédex once more. Ash does so and soon they hear the Litwick are guiding them to the Ghost World and feeding life from people and Pokémon. The heroes run off to quickly find Axew and Pikachu. Jessie and James walk difficultly and get attacked by unknown energy. The heroes encounter the Litwick, who walk away. They follow them inside a room, where they encounter Axew, Yamask, Pikachu and Meowth, though the door closes behind them. Jessie and James come as well, though they agree to escape, else the Litwick will catch them. They encounter the four Litwick, guided by a Lampent.
