Pikachu finds that Pachirisu has lost his trust in the railway's service after it failed to deliver tar to mend the roads and resolves to get to the source of the problem. Meanwhile, Turtwig is complaining about having to shunt when Buizel advises him to pretend to be sick. When Pikachu arrives Turtwig tells him he is ill, and Pikachu offers to take his Unown. The Unown, who were cross at Turtwig for bumping them, decide to get revenge on Pikachu. On the way back from the quarry they push Pikachu over some points and onto a jetty, which floats across the pond. Squirtle rescues the Unown and Gligar helps Pikachu home. When Pikachu tells Gligar about the tar, he recalls several wagons were left, and collects them. Turtwig and Buizel apologise for their trick, and Pachirisu arrives to tell Pikachu that his road is about to be mended.
