The Wobbuffet Festival is held anually by the people in Wobbuffet Village to celebrate their Wobbuffet. During the festival, Pokémon battles are strictly forbidden, causing a serious predicament when the festival is destroyed by three festival crashers decide to injure people's Wobbuffet and destruct the Wobbuffet statue with their Hitmonlee, Machoke, and Primeape, thus causing serious damage to the festival.
The festival crashers are stopped when Jessie uses her Wobbuffet to Counter their attacks. The three Pokémon blast off, and the festival crashers run away. Even though they stopped the festival crashers, Jessie and James still broke the law against engaging in a Pokémon battle during the festival. Jessie, James, and Meowth escape in their hot air balloon and wish good luck to the people in Wobbuffet Village, but they steal the festival food. They almost make their getaway trying to take advantage of the festival rule, but Officer Jenny points out that during the festival, battling is only prohibited within the village. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt, sending Team Rocket blasting off again, and the people of Wobbuffet Village celebrate the rest of the festival.
