Meowth remembers his life many years ago. He was starved for food, and overall unliked by everyone.

Knocking him down without the chicken, he struggled into the alley to find many more Meowth who were lead by a Persian. They threw him a little food. They were his friends. Later, he met a female Meowth named Meowsy and immediately fell in love. But, she had no interest in a dirty old street Meowth and her owner came by to take her in her diamond covered Pokéball. Meowth decided he should learn to talk and act human. So, he started by standing up straight. He was too slow, and the next time he was stealing some chicken the guy caught him and roughed him up. He started looking at a small group of people, and tried to say what they said. He got out a book and tried to learn to read and speak. Eventually, he could do it. Most impressed with himself, he proceeded back to Meowsy but was rejected again. This time because she thought he was a freak. Standing upright, and talking only made her like him less. He then vowed to become richer and better than she ever was, and joined Team Rocket. Back in the alley, Meowth meets his old friends,and the Persian tells him that he'd be useful back in the gang, as being able to talk would help them out. He decides to not stay, until he discovers Meowsy. She tells her story, that her trainer abandoned her on the road and she was forced to join the gang. Meowth then jumps out to defend her from the gang so he could take her with him in Team Rocket. Then, after wondering what took him so long, Jessie and James enter the scene and the Meowth gang scatters. Persian and Meowth decide to have a battle for who Meowsy gets to stay with. Meowth wins, but Meowsy decides to stay with Persian because she still thinks Meowth is a freak. Back in the theater, the movie just finishes. Misty complains that none of them are in it. Spielbug argues that through artistic license, he decided to cut out all parts with them. All those scenes ended up on the cutting room floor. Jessie and James burst in, and try to steal the show as usual. They fail as usual, too. Meowth, on the roof, is still upset about how Meowsy doesn't like him as he stares at the moon.
