Ash goes into the Celadon Gym, but gets stamped on the face and booted out again for disliking the perfume because they manufacture it inside the gym. Team Rocket enters the scene, enters the gym, tries to steal the secret formula, but is fouled by Gloom's stench. They get stamped too and booted out and tied to a tree.

perfume and use a bomb, unknownist to Ashley.
Ashley gets to meet Erika, and Brock, Misty, and Pikachu are there too. Ashley discovers that Erika was the perfume manager met earlier. Pikachu thinks that Ashley is really Ash and electrifies him, knocking Ash's costume off revealing Ash. Ash then challenges Erika to a battle.
Ash sends out Bulbasaur. Erika sends out Tangela. Bulbasaur uses Vine Whip, but Tangela Constricts it. Tangela than uses Stun Spore and paralyzes Bulbasaur. Erika now sends out Weepingbell. Ash decides to send out Primeape, but remembers how Primeape's temper hurt him. So Ash sends out Charmander.
Weepinbell uses Razor Leaf, but Charmander's Flamethrower causes it to burn the leaves. Erika then sends out Gloom and Gloom uses Stun Spore and a stinky smell to paralyze Charmander. Ash retreats and Pikachu decideds he wants to battle. But, it comes to an end when Team Rocket shows up and bombs the Gym, causing a fire and knocking them sky high with their stolen perfume.
Everybody tries to stop the flames, but Gloom is missing. Ash decides to find Gloom and does. Ash is fouled by the stench, but Gloom rids it as Gloom feels safe with Ash. Ash carries Gloom out and everybody stopped the flames. Everybody is safe and happy, but Ash wonders about the stolen perfume. Erika reassures Ash that Team Rocket stole one ingredient, Essence of Gloom. Team Rocket is stenched by it and rolls around in a big construction pipe tube.
For Ash's courage, Erika awards him the Rainbow Badge and all is well as Misty, Brock, Ash, and Pikachu head for on their journey.
