Episode #41 - March of the Exeggutor Squad
It's carnival time, and Ash and Brock gets caught up in the fever! Misty, on the other hand, is more reserved, and while avoiding the parades and festivites, she gets roped into helping the hopeless magician Melvin with his act. His only Pokémon, the egg-like Exeggcute, doesn't do much to interest the crowds... but when Ash falls prey to the Pokémon's hypnotic powers, Melvin uses him to capture a whole herd of Exeggcutor, tree-like Pokémon with even stronger hypnotic powers. As usual, however, Team Rocket shows up to interfere, and when things go from bad to worse, it's up to Melvin and Ash's Charmander, who evolves into Charmeleon, to save both the carnival and the herd of Exegggutor from disaster.
