Continuing their journey, Ash and friends come across an authorized Pokémon Connoisseurer. The Connoisseurer is at a new store performing readings for people and their Pokémon. They decide to go watch them so that Ash can get a free reading and Cilan can see another Connoisseurer in action. However, this Connoisseurer has a connection to Cilan.
A young boy named Ash Ketchum embarks on a journey to become a "Pokemon Master" with his first Pokemon, Pikachu. Joining him on his travels are Brock, a girl-obsessed Rock Pokemon Trainer, and Misty, a tomboyish Water Pokemon Trainer who may have a crush on him. Ash and Co. end up traveling through various regions, including Kanto, the Orange Islands, and Johto, and then enter the Pokemon League competitions there.
Along the way, they run into many confrontations with Jessie, James, and Meowth, a trio of Pokemon thieves who are apart of an evil organization called "Team Rocket". But every time Team Rocket try to do their evil deeds, they fail thanks to Ash and his Pokemon.
