It’s time for Ash’s Coumarine City Gym battle with Ramos, and our hero can’t wait to get started! But Ramos is in no hurry at all. He invites our heroes to tea, and then asks them for some help tending his garden.
Eventually, it’s time for the big battle to begin. When Ash’s Fletchinder takes down Jumpluff, he thinks he has a big advantage at this Grass-type Gym! But Ramos’s Weepinbell unleashes a Poison Powder that quickly defeats Fletchinder and then Hawlucha.
Finally, Ash sends out the Water-type Frogadier, which seems like a bad type matchup. But it turns out Ash has a plan—he instructs Frogadier to use its Frubbles as a protective mask so it doesn’t inhale the powder! The plan works, and Weepinbell is soon defeated.
Ramos sends out his trusty Gogoat, who uses Razor Leaf as an evasion tactic in a way Ash has never seen before. Inspired, Ash has Frogadier first use Double Team, and then prepare a Water Pulse while Gogoat is distracted. It works, and Ash wins the Plant Badge!
