Episode 11: Charmander the Stray Pokemon
Once again, Ash, Misty and Brock are lost. The only Pokémon
that are available in the
area are Spearow. Ash points out that Route 24 would lead them straight to
Vermilion City. The gang is about to leave on their way when they come across a
HUGE Pokémon. It's actually a large rock with a Charmander on it (a lizard-looking
Pokémon with a flame on its tail). The Charmander seems weak because the flame on
its tail is almost out. Legend says that when the Charmander's flame goes out, it'll
die. Brock suggests that it seems injured. Ash tries to catch it with his
Pokéball but Charmander flicks the Pokéball away. With Pikachu's help, the gang
finds out that Charmander is actually waiting for his trainer to come back. Since
they can't get Charmander to go with them, Brock suggests to leave Charmander there
and let him wait for his trainer.
Ash, Misty, and Brock leave and head
toward the Pokémon Centre. The weather is horrible with lots of rain and lightning.
In the Centre, the gang warms up with a bowl of soup. Brock is getting more worried
about Charmander. Then, the gang hears some people talking. Ash and
Brock hear a boy, Damien, bragging about his collection of Pokémon. They hear him
talk about abandoning his Charmander on the rock. After hearing this, Ash, Misty,
and Brock get very angry. Knowing that Charmander's flame might go out, Brock
threatens Damien, and demands that he get his Charmander back, but Damien doesn't really care what
might happen to his Charmander. After a heated fight between Ash and Damien,
they decide to battle but Nurse Joy breaks it up. After a while, Ash, Misty, and
Brock decide to go out in the rain and rescue Charmander from the storm. When
they reach the rock where Charmander was, they see a flock of Spearows attacking
it. Pikachu rescues Charmander from the Spearows by sending a electric bolt at
them (as well as Ash's gang). Quickly, they cover Charmander and take it back to the Centre, as
his flame is almost out. At the Centre, Nurse Joy takes Charmander and puts him in
the Emergency Room.
The next morning, they find out that Charmander is missing. In
panic, Ash, Misty, and Brock head back to the huge rock, to find Charmander waiting
for Damien again. Nurse Joy had said that Charmander would stay on the rock until
he's convinced that Damien won't come back. The group finally accepts that
Charmander won't go with them, so they go on Route 24 to Vermilion City.
Meanwhile, Team Rocket is making another huge trap. Using their super-duper
high-speed whatchamacallit, they drill a huge hole and cover it up. The trap is done
and Team Rocket hides behind the trees. Pikachu steps right over the disguised pit
but doesn't fall in. When Ash, Brock and Misty step on it, they fall into the
pit, leaving Pikachu at the surface. Team Rocket, thanks to their rubber super-duper
anti-Pikachu suits, capture Pikachu with a balloon-shooting super-duper
anti-Pikachu bazooka. They manage to capture Pikachu in a red balloon. Ash hears
Pikachu calling him but he can't get up from the pit. Suddenly, Charmander
comes along and warns Team Rocket to let go of Pikachu. (This is translated by
Meowth.) When they ignore him, he gets angry, and
lets out a huge ball of fire at them. Quickly, Team Rocket drops Pikachu and runs
away. Damien who saw this, shows up and says that he wants Charmander back. Ash,
Misty, and Brock urge Charmander not to go. Damien admits that he wasn't
going to return for Charmander, until he saw how strong he had become in
the wild. He also admits he is glad that he left him, because it toughened
him up. After hearing this, Charmander refuses to go with him. When Damien
throws the Pokeball at him, he flicks it back into his face. This angers
Damien and he is about to take out his Pokemon to battle Charmander. But
before he can, he gets torched and electrocuted by
Charmander and Pikachu. Brock suggests that Ash should take Charmander because
he was the one who covered his tail, and kept it from getting wet. Ash
calls him into the Pokéball. Now, Charmander is happy with his new friends.
Episode 12: Here Comes the Squirtle Squad
Ash is really excited about his new Pokémon, Charmander. As the gang
towards Vermilion City, they stumble into yet another pit. Looking up, they see a group
of Squirtles (blue turtles with red shells), who made the pit as a joke. Angry at
the Squirtles, Ash tells Pikachu to electrocute them and Pikachu manages to send a
electrical bolt on one of them. Pikachu and the leader of the Squirtle squad have a
short conversation (the leader is the one with the huge, pointy sunglasses).
Suddenly, Officer Jenny (this is a different Jenny from the other episodes...she's
one of the identical cousins named Jenny) comes by with her police siren, which
scares away the Squirtles. The officer tells Ash, Misty, and Brock about the Squirtle
Squad. The Squirtles are part of a Pokémon gang and they play practical jokes on the
townspeople. The Squirtle Squad was formed by Squirtles after their trainers abandoned them.
Meanwhile, Team Rocket is hungry and decides to have a picnic, but lurking nearby
are the hungry Squirtles. The Squirtles demand their food and Team Rocket falls
into a hole as they were trying to call for their Pokémon. Happily, the Squirtles eat
Team Rocket's food as they are tied up in a tree. Jesse tries to compromise with
the Squirtles but the Squirtles don't trust humans. Meowth manages to convince the
Squirtles to let him go by telling them that Jesse and James are his pets.
Misty is fishing and thinks that she has caught something. It is actually a Squirtle.
Pikachu uses his electric surge to shock the Squirtle but shocks Ash, Misty and Brock
instead. Suddenly, the Squirtle flings Pikachu into the river. As he is trying
to get back to shore, a Goldeen (a horned fish) uses its needle attack and
weakens him. Without warning, some Squirtles throw ropes at Pikachu and rope him up. Then, they rope up Ash, Misty and Brock also. Inside the cave, the
group finds out that Meowth is behind it all. Pikachu is found inside a cage, all
injured and weak. Ash knows that Pikachu needs some Super Potion and manages to
make a compromise with the Squirtles to let him get some for Pikachu. Meowth threatens to
dye Misty's hair purple if he's not back by noon tomorrow. Upon hearing this she
Quickly, Ash runs to the
nearest town to get some medicine. He almost makes it to the door of the shop when
Gary opens it, accidentally smacking Ash in the face, and knocking him out. Ash finally
regains consciousness, to find that Team Rocket has robbed the store. He is nearly shot by
the shop keepers when he runs in to get the super potion but manages to get the
medicine. Officer Jenny escorts Ash to the cave. He goes in by himself with
Charmander lighting the way. Ash gives Misty the potion and she sprays it on
Pikachu. They're interrupted by Team Rocket throwing down bombs. The gang runs
for cover but there is one Squirtle who is upside down on its shell and can't get
up. Ash risks his life and covers the Squirtle to protect it. As more bombs drop,
Squirtle grabs Ash and runs into the cave. A huge fire has started and all the
Squirtles team up to hose the fire down. Afterwards, the Squirtles get an award for
being so brave, and are appointed the town's firefighters. As Ash, Misty, Brock and
Pikachu are on their way, they find Squirtle, the leader of the squad, following them. He wants to join Ash's team and takes off his sunglasses to reveal
that he is a
cute Pokémon. Squirtle runs to Ash to receive a warm welcome from Ash and Pikachu.
Episode 13: Mystery at the Lighthouse
No big surprise....our heroes are lost. Brock and Misty
show their lack of faith in Ash's
Pokémon-catching abilities, angering him. He becomes determined to prove he can
catch Pokemon. He suddenly runs off to a
beach, where he finds a Krabby (a crab Pokémon). Using only a stick and a Pokéball,
Ash manages to catch Krabby. Being proud of his catch, Ash holds the Pokéball in
his hand when it disappears. Ash becomes worried and confused. Brock explains that in the
Pokémon League, you're only allowed to carry six Pokémon at a time and the rest are
all teleported to where you got your Pokédex. This means that Krabby is with
Professor Oak. Brock also tells Ash that he can change his Pokémon by pressing the
white button on his Pokédex. Ash doesn't want to exchange any of his Pokémon but
gets worried and wants to know if his Krabby is okay. Ash wants to call Professor
Oak but a phone is nowhere to be found. Then, Pikachu points out a lighthouse in the
The group walks up the path and reaches the lighthouse. They ring the
doorbell and ask to come inside. A voice agrees to let them in and the door opens
automatically. Ash asks for a phone and the voice tells him where it is. Then, Ash
calls Professor Oak, who is just cooking dinner. Ash gets upset and wonders if
Professor Oak was eating his Krabby, but Oak assures him that he is only cooking
Tofu. Ash explains that he is calling from a lighthouse on a cliff. Professor
Oak realizes that he and his friends must be at Bill's lighthouse. When Ash
brags about his Krabby, Professor Oak explains that Gary has already caught 45 Pokémon!
He shows him the Krabby that Gary caught, which is twice as big as Ash's! Professor Oak
asks, Bill, the Pokémon
researcher (the voice) if he can give the group a crash course about Pokémon.
He tells Ash that he has to go and ends the call. The
group steps forward towards Bill. The light reveals a Kabuto (an extinct, prehistoric
Pokémon) instead! Brock points out that Kabutos are instinct. The group finds out that
Bill is just stuck in a costume. They help Bill out of the costume. Bill
explains the research he's doing on rare Pokémon. He tells Ash, Misty, Brock
and Pikachu about all the different kinds of Pokémon that once existed.
Team Rocket is climbing up the cliff to get to the lighthouse without being seen.
Back inside the lighthouse, Bill says that he is looking for one specific Pokémon which
he describes as a huge Pokémon that has not been discovered before. He says that the Pokémon wants to
find friends and that he has been communicating with it. Bill doesn't want
to capture it. He just wants to study it. Bill and the group go outside to the top of
lighthouse, where they hear a strange, beautiful music coming from the ocean.
They are amazed to see a silhouette of the Pokémon in the distance. Team
Rocket also hears the music from the cliff side. A huge Pokémon shows up near the
lighthouse and Team Rocket tries to capture it with bazooka-looking weapons. The
huge dragon-like Pokémon attacks Team Rocket and leaves back to the ocean
afterwards. Bill calls for it to come back but the huge Pokémon disappears into the
fog. The next day, Bill forgets about the huge Pokémon and wishes Ash and the
group good luck on their journey. Ash, Misty, and Brock continue on their
jpurney to become the greatest Pokémon trainers in the world.
Episode 14: Electric Shock Showdown
Like a dream, Ash, Misty,
and Brock finally reach Vermilion City! Pikachu is
feeling hungry so Ash takes him to the Vermilion City Pokémon Centre to feed him.
At the Pokécentre, Ash and Pikachu see a kid bringing in a Rattata who seems to be
very weak. Nurse Joy (a different Nurse Joy) says that the gym leader of the
Vermilion City Gym has done this, just like all the other injured Pokémon in the
Pokécentre. Ash finds out the name of the gym leader, Lt. Surge. Misty knows
that Ash is not an experienced enough trainer to battle against him. Finally, Pikachu
is healed, and Ash and Misty find him happily eating some snacks. Ash warns
Pikachu to get ready and battle Lt. Surge, but when another injured Pokémon
by, Pikachu cries out and doesn't want to go anymore. Ash is confident that Pikachu
will win and they enter the Gym.
At the gym, Ash sees Lt. Surge, a huge man who
Raichu (a evolved form of Pikachu). After seeing Raichu, Pikachu is very determined
to beat him. Pikachu loses pretty badly. Later on,
Pikachu is taken to the Pokémon Centre, where he is laid in a bed to heal. Pikachu
wakes up and refuses to talk to anyone. Brock and Misty says that it's almost
impossible for Pikachu to win against Raichu. Overhearing their conversation, Nurse
Joy shows Ash and Pikachu a Thunder stone, which will make Pikachu evolve into a
Raichu. Ash isn't sure whether to make Pikachu evolve so he asks Pikachu if he
wants to. After a long pause, Pikachu whacks the stone away and tells Ash that he
wants to fight Raichu just the way he is.
Outside, Team Rocket is spying
on them through a window. Meowth translates what Pikachu is saying. Brock gives Ash a strategy
against Raichu. As Ash and Pikachu head towards the gym, they are stopped by Team
Rocket who disguises itself. Team Rocket cheers for Pikachu. Misty says good bye, knowing that they
are Team Rocket. At the gym, Ash
and Pikachu are ready. After a few slams, Pikachu uses his agility and speed to fight
against Raichu. Pikachus and Raichus learn their agility and speed when they are in
their Pikachu stage, but Brock found out that Lt. Surge's Raichu had evolved too
quickly to learn agility. Near the end of the battle, Raichu sends out a gigantic
electric bolt that destroys the windows. Lt. Surge and Raichu think the battle
is over until they find Pikachu standing on top of his tail. Raichu can't use anymore
of his attacks and Pikachu finishes him off. At the end, Ash is awarded the Thunder
badge. Raichu congratulates Pikachu. Ash gives Pikachu a warm hug. Afterwards,
Team Rocket realizes that they've devoted the entire episode cheering on the
Episode 15: Battle Aboard the St. Anne
Now, Ash continues
on his journey with 3 badges pinned to his jacket. The gang sees a
huge ship looming on the dock. They begin to have dreams about going on a cruise ship. Disguised as cheesy teenage girls, Jesse and James of Team Rocket fool
every Pokémon trainer, including Ash and his friends, into accepting free tickets for a
cruise aboard the St. Anne. After that, Jesse and James go to their lighthouse
hideout, where they communicate via video phone with their boss. Jesse and James'
boss describes his evil plan to get as many Pokémon trainers as possible on to the St.
Anne and steal their Pokémon once they're all on board! Meowth is shocked and
hurt to see that the boss has replaced him with a Persian. He cheers up
when he realizes that this mission is his chance to regain the affection
of the boss.
On the St. Anne, it seems like a floating Pokémon convention. Trainers from all over the place are
either buying, selling, trading or battling Pokémon. The group stuffs their
faces. Later, Ash comes across a
Pokémon trainer who's dressed like a magician. To show off his skills, Ash challenges
the man into a battle. Ash calls upon his Butterfree against the man's Raticate
(the evolved form of a rattata). Ash is close to winning when the man decides to call it
a draw. A while after, the man approaches Ash, hoping to trade his Raticate for
Ash's Butterfree. He asks a girl-crazy Brock if he should. Brock says they
should all trade, his judgment blinded by a beautiful woman. Ash reluctantly agrees to trade.
Meanwhile, James uses an advance on his and Jesse's paycheck (without her
permission) to buy a Magikarp (a fish) which the previous owner described as "a gold
mine." Falling for it, James buys the Magikarp.
Finally, it is time for Team
Rocket's plan to go into action. The boat suddenly stops and the exits are all sealed
as an army of Team Rocket terrorists armed with vacuum-powered back-packs burst
out of their hiding places and demand all the Pokémon. The vacuums suck up many
Pokéballs. Ash rallies the trainers to
fight back. Pokémon of the same species get into pyramids and perform
coordinated attacks on Team Rocket. In the
midst of battle, Ash's new Raticate makes him realize how much he misses Butterfree,
which is the first Pokémon he captured and raised. After the battle he sets out
to find the man that was dressed like a magician. Suddenly, the St. Anne began to
sink in the midst of a wild storm. Jesse and Meowth find James as he tries to
search for the guy who sold him the Magikarp. Brock and Misty find Ash trading the
Raticate for his Butterfree back. The ship suddenly lurches and both James and Ash
drop their Pokéballs and chase after them. The boat overturns, knocking out Team
Rocket, Ash and company. All the other passengers manage to get out safely on board
the lifeboats, but our heroes and Team Rocket are still unconscious in the boat as it
sinks into the ocean.
Episode 16: Pokemon Shipwreck
Our heroes, including Team Rocket are still stuck under the sea, while Officer Jenny
performs a memorial service on the surface for the main characters (including Team
Rocket), thinking they have all drowned. The upside-down cruise ship is balancing on a precipice in a canyon as Jesse
and James awaken to find themselves underneath a blazing stove. Brock and Misty
urges Ash to wake up. Ash does, as Misty tells him to look outside window. There
are fish out there. Anyway, back to Jesse and James. They are dreaming that
they are on a tropical beach, "under the burning sun". They find themselves
on lying on the ceiling, being burned by fire from the the stove above. They
realize they are in the sunken ship. Then, suddenly, Jesse has an idea. She has
Ekans blast open a hole in the floor (or ceiling) with its acid. Of course, it just causes the ship to
fill with water. Team Rocket nearly drowns but are saved by Misty's Goldeen,
which is trying
to find a way out. It brings them to the dry part of the ship and set them near Ash,
Brock and Misty. Being harsh enemies, they start to fight, but the extra weight of all
their Pokémon causes the ship to tip. Quickly, they all put their Pokémon back into
the Pokéballs and decide to call it a truce temporarily.
Misty, who's built a model of
the St. Anne before, knows exactly how to get out. It includes crossing over an
inferno-filled room. To get across the fire, Ash has Bulbasaur extend his vines
across the room, and the gang walks across the vines like tight-rope walkers.
Team Rocket reluctantly walks across, despite a fear of fire and heights. Ash gets Charmander to burn a hole in the ceiling.
Water gushes through it, and Ash calls Charmander back into his Pokéball, right
before it hits him. Everyone ties themselves up to a water Pokémon. Everyone grabs hold of a water
Pokémon except for Team Rocket. In desperation, James calls out his Magikarp, but
Magikarp can't swim, and the ship topples into the enormous abyss. Back on the
surface, Ash and his friends are standing on top of a floating object and have
absolutely no idea where land is. Brock tells Ash about the story of Noah and how
he used a bird to find land. After hearing this, Ash sends Pidgeotto to fly out
and bring something back. Pidgeotto brings back Team Rocket and a floundering
Magikarp. Ash, Misty, Brock, and Pikachu are about to give them a funeral when they
suddenly wake up. Hours later, they're all hungry and want to eat Magikarp, but
its scales are too hard. James is very angry at Magikarp's uselessness and kicks him into the
water. Suddenly, Magikarp evolves into an angry Gyaradros (a huge Sea serpent). Misty calls
upon her water Pokémon to tow the raft while everyone rows to escape from the
chasing serpent. Eventually, the Gyarados stops its pursuit and everyone thinks they're
safe, except for Misty. Misty says that the Gyarados might be using its most powerful
attack, the Dragon Rage. Summoning more of his species, Gyarados and his friends
spin in a circle to create a water-filled tornado. The tornado manages to suck
everyone in. Ash, Misty, Brock and Pikachu are holding hands, but can't hold on for
much longer. Will our heroes get away safe and sound?
Episode 17: Island of the Giant Pokemon
In the last episode, Team Rocket, Ash,
Misty, and Brock joined forces to protect
each other...but only temporarily, however, they couldn't shield themselves from the
ultimate attack from Gyarados's Dragon Rage. With this attack, everyone was washed
up in the hurricane and they were all stranded somewhere.
Ash wakes up on an island, wondering
how he got there. He wakes up Misty and Brock. Ash can't seem to find Pikachu,
and discovers that he only has two Pokémon with him. Elsewhere on the beach, Team
Rocket is stuck on the dirt when a Krabby pinches both of them, and they wake up.
They begin to think they're invincible because they've survived almost
everything. But soon they realize they haven't heard any annoying
sounds...Meowth has gone somewhere, and so are Ekans and Koffing.
They find a phone booth, (weird to have it in the middle of nowhere) but then they
find that they have no change.
In another area of the beach, Pikachu wakes up, and
finds 3 Pokéballs on the ground. He calls them out, and asks if they're ok. They are,
and Squirtle wonders where they are. Bulbasaur asks if they are lost and Charmander
asks where they are. Pikachu doesn't have the answers. They look around, and see a
Slowpoke, a Pokémon, resting on a rock. Pikachu and Charmander ask him where they are, but he
doesn't reply. So they just leave him alone after he puts his tail into the water.
Night falls. The Pokémon are searching for their masters, courtesy of Charmander's
fire, which lights up the place. Somewhere nearby, Meowth is spying on them. He
challenges the Pokémon to a match. He begins the Team Rocket motto, but it doesn't
even make Ash's Pokémon scared at all. He asks for help by Koffing and Ekans, but
they refuse because he's not their master. They comment on how Pokémon aren't
evil, and how they only do bad things when their masters are bad. Meowth can not
fight all of Ash's Pokémon on his own and they tie him up to a tree. Both groups of Pokémon--Ash's
Pokémon and Team Rocket's Pokémon join forces to try and find their masters. They
have traveled a long way, so they are all obviously hungry. They stop, make a fire and
begin munching, and having a little chat. Meowth asks for food, but Squirtle
refuses to give him any until he apologizes. Meowth refuses to.
Suddenly, the Pokémon hear a huge thumping sound
coming from near them. They all look up and see that it's a huge Pokémon! Of course
they run away. Pikachu stays to untie Meowth from the tree. This doesn't change
their relationship, though. Somewhere else on the
island, Ash and his friends are also running away from the huge monsters. Team
Rocket is also running away from the huge
monsters (what a coincidence). Team Rocket hits a sign, causing them to lose the
Pokémon. It thanks it for saving them.
The lost Pokémon are now resting with a pal, Slowpoke. Some of them are crying,
while others are fighting or calming each other down. Some of the Pokémon
suspect that their trainers abandoned them, but Charmander and Pikachu don't
The next morning, Ash, Misty, and
Brock are resting in a cave, and decide they should go out and look for their Pokémon. Team Rocket wakes up and runs for the phone booth, planning to make a
call. They call the boss collect, and he hangs up after they say their motto. So,
then they have another plan instead, they decide to follow the phone cable,
thinking it will lead them to the phone company. Soon, they see a huge Pikachu. They think
it's a mirage, but its not, and the Pikachu attempts to squish them.
Elsewhere, Ash and his friends make an attempt to escape the fire of a huge
Charizard, an evolved Charmander. The Pokémon see it (without seeing their
trainers), and then they see a Blastoise,
an evolved Squirtle. Pikachu tells Squirtle to ask for directions. Squirtle does, but
when he asks the huge turtle, it shoots out water at the Pokémon. Then they see a
Venusaur, the evolved form of Bulbasaur. They ask Bulbasaur to talk to it,
saying that they are like family, but he replies that he is like an orphan. Squirtle
calls him a coward.
Back with Team Rocket, they are running away from the huge
monsters (again). They find a rail road car, and hop in, but they go backwards
instead so they decide to hit the brakes. Unfortunately for them, it breaks off, and
they keep going. Ash and his friends are on a land bridge, and they see a huge
Pikachu. Then they see a rail road car coming closer. It collides with the bridge, and
the bridge collapses. Everyone falls into the cart. Then they look behind them, and
their real Pokémon are running behind the cart. Then Misty points out a loop up
ahead. After they go around the loop, the Pokémon jump onto the cart. Then,
Meowth appears, and the rest of the Team Rocket group celebrates. Suddenly, a huge
mechanical bird crashes into the giant Pokémon pile and the rail car crashes into the
water. Just then, a tour boat that belongs to a theme park called "Pokémon
Land," floats by. At Pokémon Land, you get to see mechanical reproductions real Pokémon only many times
their real size! Team Rocket's boss gets a call that his million-dollar theme park
has just been trashed, while Ash and his friends find their way to the beautiful town
of Porta Vista.
Episode 18: Tentacool and Tentacruel
Ash, Brock, and Misty are in the town of Porta Vista without enough money to ride the
ferry off the island. They're waiting at the dock for another ferry to pass by when a
battered Horsea (a blue seahorse Pokémon) tries to warn them of some danger.
They don't understand what it's trying to say. It squirts out an ink pattern in
the water. Suddenly, a boat on the ocean explodes
which sends some sailors flying into the air. Misty sends out Starmie, Staryu and
Goldeen to help rescue them while Ash and Brock get a boat. Misty's water Pokémon
get the sailors on the boat and find the sailors are paralyzed. The sailors ask to see
The sailors boss is Nestina, a short, ugly woman with a mean temper.
Nestina is trying to build a resort on the reef off-shore, but the Tentacools
(jellyfish-looking Pokémon) keep interfering with her plans. She wants Ash and friends
to exterminate the Tentacool and offers them lots fabulous prizes if they're
successful. Ash and Brock are all for it, but Misty gets mad and storms off because
she thinks Tentacools are cute. Misty loves water-type Pokémon, she's a lot nicer
when she's with them but she especially loves the Tentacool and thinks they're
beautiful (Ash and Brock think otherwise). Suddenly, Ash realizes that Horsea
was trying to warn them about the Tentacools with a picture it made by blasting ink
on the water looked like Tentacools. Just then, Nestina makes a public announcement
saying that she's offering a generous reward, to anyone who can exterminate the
After the announcement, a riot forms to get rid of the Tentacools.
Nestina arrives in a tank to calm everyone down and a suction-dart rose hits the
tank's barrel. It's Team Rocket (James threw the rose). Team Rocket accepts the
challenge of getting rid of the Tentacools and rides a boat to the construction site of
the resort. Their plan was to dump stun sauce on the Tentacool, get the reward money
and then sell the Tentacool for profit! When they arrive at the site, Jesse realizes
that there's not enough stun sauce to have any affect on all those Tentacools. All
the Tentacools team up and blast the boat to bits, sending Team Rocket flying and
the barrel of stun sauce hits one of the Tentacools, turning it into a gigantic
Tentacruel! (Tentacruel are only supposed to be around 5' 03" in height). The
Tentacruel grabs Team Rocket, destroys the construction site, and plans to take down
Porta Vista also. Everyone turn to flee as the giant jellyfish's approach causes a tidal
wave. Jesse and James wind up on a pole and Meowth finds himself the unwitting victim
of a Tentacruel. It takes control of his body. Using Meowth as a speaker, it announces that he and all
the Tentacool will destroy the human's home like they've destroyed the Tentacool's
home (the ocean).
Ash tries to let down the Tentacruel by sending out Pikachu,
Bulbasaur and Squirtle out, riding on Pidgeotto, Butterfree, and Zubat.
Misty unleashes the forces of Starmie, Staryu and Goldeen. Misty's Pokémon and
Zubat herd the Tentacool back into the ocean while the flying Pikachu and Bulbasaur
attack the massive Tentacruel. The Tentacruel smacks Butterfree and Bulbasaur.
Then, Horsea and Pikachu try to reason with it. Finally, Misty convinces Tentacruel to
stop the damage. She says that the people would stop doing that they were doing.
The Tentacruel believes her, tosses Meowth away, and heads back out to the ocean.
Then Nestina tries to attack the Tentacruel with machine guns and bazookas, but
doesn't seem to do any harm on the Tentacruel as it smacks her off the island and all
the way to her cousin's house. In the end, Misty gets Horsea as her new
Pokémon. Team Rocket gets dragged behind a ferry in a barrel. (What a way to
travel!) Read the next episode to find out what happens...
