Working My Way Back to Mew! (ポケモン
Goh has caught his first Pokémon, a Scorbunny. He's now taken an interest in getting Pokémon, so he heads to Vermillion Forest with Ash and the others, aiming to get even more. Despite some initial difficulties, he starts getting a Caterpie, then continues getting one Bug Pokémon after another. Will he manage to get every species of Bug Pokémon from the Kanto Region?
Goh shows Professor Cerise the problem with his screen on his rotom phone. Cerise explains that it is a Pokédex that has two functions: describe a Pokémon's typing and characteristics or lists the Pokémon a trainer has caught. Cerise states that the list will fill up as he catches more Pokémon and record their data. This surprised Ash and Goh. Goh decides to catch loads of Pokémon in order to fill out the Pokédex, Ash suggests that they should start doing it right away. Goh agrees, and they head out to Viridian Forest.
The boys arrive in Viridian Forest where they begin to catch Pokémon for Goh's Pokédex. Goh brought many Poké Balls to be able to catch all the pokémon that he can find in the forest. Goh asks Scorbunny to help him find Pokémon. Ash's Pikachu heard one nearby. The boys find a Pidgey. Goh attempts to catch it straight away, but miss with the throw. The wild Pidgey used Gust which blew them away. Ash warns Goh that sometimes, you can't catch a Pokémon without a fight and that they can even fight back. Scorbunny heard a Pidgeotto nearby and rushes to it but it already flew away when it heard Scorbunny running. Goh warns Scorbunny that Pokémon will run away if they're too loud and also tells Scorbunny to stay calm.
A Diglett appears as Goh attempts to catch it, but Scorbunny rushes to it, ignoring Goh's commands. Because of this, the Diglett ran away. Suddenly a Dugtrio emerges from the ground and carries Goh off with Scorbunny, Ash and Pikachu follow them. Ash tells Goh to jump off but he rather attempts to catch it, only for to Pokémon and escape.
Goh reminds Scorbunny again, that he should stay calm, which embarrasses Scorbunny. The boys then continue to search for Pokémon and spot a Caterpie. Scorbunny attempts to rush it, but luckily Goh stopped it and they've slowly approached the Pokémon. Thanks to this, he successfully catches Caterpie and added it to his Pokédex. Goh praise Scorbunny for its help, as they start searching for more Pokémon, starting with Caterpie's evolutionary line.
The boys begin to look for Metapod, which they had trouble with their search. However, they hear something from the trees. They attempt to make it fall, by kicking the tree, only for Goh to get hit by a branch. Scorbunny and Pikachu decide to help their trainers out, where they successfully knock Metapod down from the tree. And Goh was able to catch the Metapod. The boys continue their search. Goh has successfully caught a Venomoth, Paras, Parasect and pursue on catching a Butterfree next. They quickly spot it flying onto the top of a tree. Ash helps Goh climb up. While Goh was climbing, he heard something from the bushes and head over to investigate it. Goh attempts to catch the Butterfree but he drops his Poké Ball that the Butterfree noticed and tried to escape. Luckily, Scorbunny kicked the Pokéball in the direction of the Butterfree and was able to be caught properly, which completed Caterpie's evolutionary line as Goh and Scorbunny high fived for his accomplishment.
Ash and Pikachu checked the bushes, where they found a Pinsir that attacked them. Ash orders Pikachu to attack with Quick Attack, he manages to land a hit on Pinsir but then they got quickly trapped by its Rock Tomb. Pinsir then attacks Goh and Scorbunny, only to be caught by accident while Goh tried to defend himself from it by throwing rocks at it.
The boys are having fun during search catching Pokémon, with Ash wanting to catch some himself. Scorbunny and Pikachu hear something close by and split up to them with their trainers following them. Goh and Scorbunny founds a Scyther and Goh attempt to catch it, but fails and got blown away by its Air Slash. Scyther ran off, but Goh swears that he'll get it later. Goh check his phone and decides to catch Weedle's evolutionary line.
Scorbunny finds a Weedle, as Goh has successfully caught it. Goh and Scorbunny then find a group of Kakuna and Goh catches one of them, which he now needs to look for Beedrill. However Goh and Scorbunny are attack by a swarm of Beedrill. Ash and Pikachu were on their search, with the former ask on how Goh's catching is doing. Ash meet up with Goh who is being by the Beedrill, as they boys run away from the swarms. As the Beedrill were catching Ash orders Pikachu to use Electroweb which snare the Beedrill in the net while Goh catches one of them.
Goh notify Ash that he almost completes his catches with only having two Pokémon left: Scyther and Venonat. Goh tries to look Venonat in the trees, where found one and tries to capture, but fails. Ash tells Goh he should weaken it through battling, but Goh refuses and attempt a second try. However Scorbunny jumps and help Goh catch it by battle, which Goh accepts it help. Goh tells Scorbunny to use Quick Attack, he manages to land a hit on Venonat but then they got quickly poisoned by its Poison Powder. Scorbunny then uses Double Kick, which weakens Venonat and allow Goh to catch it. Goh was happy that caught the Pokémon, but gets worried after seeing Scorbunny been hurt by its Poison. Ash and Goh heads to the Pokémon Center, where they ask Nurse Joy to heal Goh's Scorbunny. Few minutes later, Norse Joy heals Goh's Pokémon, as her for the help. Goh summons Scorbunny and apologizes to it for not pay attention to its injuries as he was focus during their mission. Scorbunny forgives its trainer and want to help him continue his catch.
Ash and Goh went back to catch Scyther, with them having a competition on who catches and split up. Goh and Scorbunny starts their search as they already found Scyther and attempts to catch it again. Unfortunately, Scyther avoid the catch, which leaves Goh to battle with Scorbunny. Goh orders Scorbunny to attack with Quick Attack but Scyther dodge it. Scyther uses Air Slash only, for Scorbunny to dodge it attacks as well. Ash and Pikachu who the former was bummed that Goh arrives at it first but cheers his friend on. Goh tells Scorbunny to use Double Kick which Scyther dodges. Ash tells Goh to hit harder, but the don't get what the former by that. Scyther then hits Scorbunny with Slash. Goh tells Scorbunny to remain calm and to stay focus. Scorbunny chargesin and successfully hit Scyther with Quick Attack. With Scyther weaken, Goh attempts his last try, with him successfully caught. Goh was happy he all Bug-type and Scorbunny for its help.
At the Cerise Laboratory, Cerise and Chloe are having breakfast, who questions on Ash and Goh absence. Suddenly they hear them upstairs and went up to check them. As they enter their room, they were surprised by the Pokémon Goh has caught. Cerise was amazes by the Pokémon they caught and interacting with them, as he would have form them being his research assistants. Chloe states that the room is not big enough for the Pokémon, which Cerise has a solution that.
Cerise took Ash and Goh to his park where he assure the boys can store some of the Pokémon they catch in there. As the kids are the Pokémon having fun Chloe admits she Goh didn't catch Mew first. Goh states Mew have the genes of all Pokémon and having Mew as his first Pokémon won't be enough. Which why he plan to catch every single Pokémon so he can one day catch Mew along the way. Goh ask what Ash's goal as the latter states he planning to become a "Pokémon Master". Goh ask if his goal means becoming the world greatest Pokémon trainer?, which Ash stating it'll be even greater than that. Chloe is confused by Ash's goal but Goh support to keep pursing his dream as Ash tells Goh to do same with his as well.
