Pokémon, I Choose You
1997-04-01
Satoshi is finally 10 years old, old enough to become a Pokémon Trainer. He wakes up late on the day he is supposed to receive his first Pokémon at Professor Okido's lab, however, and arrives to discover all the Pokémon are gone. Satoshi has no choice but to take a naughty Pikachu. Pikachu will not listen to Satoshi or go inside its Monster Ball, so Satoshi must drag it along with a rope. After many failed attempts at capturing some Pokémon, Satoshi throws a rock and hits a Onisuzume. The Onisuzume gets angry and the entire flock starts chasing Satoshi and Pikachu. They run away from the Onisuzume, borrowing a bike from a red-haired girl to escape, but when they cannot go any farther, Satoshi uses his body to shield Pikachu from the attacking Pokémon. Pikachu realizes how much Satoshi cares for him and uses a powerful electric attack to drive the Onisuzume away, destroying the bicycle in the process as well.

A Poached Ego!
2003-11-09
On the road, Ash and friends discover a strange item, and Officer Jenny tells it's a part from a Pokémon poacher's net. Our heroes set off with Officer Jenny to catch the poacher in question, but this time Team Rocket beats them to the punch. The poacher's client has a penchant for Poison-type Pokémon, and the nets are full of Ekans and Koffing (who evolve into Arbok and Weezing). Appalled at the captured Pokémon's bad treatment, Jessie and James attempt to battle the poacher, but they can't get the upper hand...and then, in a rare act of selflessness, they instruct their own Arbok and Weezing to guide the smaller Pokémon to safety and never look back. The villains must bid farewell to these longtime allies, but the loss is balanced when they recruit a Cacnea they met during this misadventure--and later, Ash and company help Officer Jenny catch the poacher, completely unaware of Team Rocket's unusual heroics!

But Seviper is too powerful, and Treecko takes several hits...mostly to its ego. Ash takes it to the nearest Pokémon Center for treatment, and afterward, it runs away to train for future battles by itself. Meanwhile, Jessie has caught Seviper for Team Rocket, and when the villains attack in yet another attempt to steal Pikachu, Treecko's new battle skills save the day!

Taming of the Shroomish
2003-12-06
When Ash and friends stop in Rinshin Town for food and supplies, May drags Brock off to see a haunted mansion. Meanwhile, Max spots a Shroomish in an alleyway, which is odd because Shroomish normally live in forests. It turns out that the town used to be a forest where many Shroomish made their homes, and they've since been edged out by urban development. But they've been gathering in the mansion, which explains the odd things people have been seeing there. The mansion is now scheduled to be demolished, leaving the Shroomish homeless once more. But after these helpful Pokémon stop a Team Rocket attack with a combined Stun Spore, the mansion's owner decides to tear down the building as planned, and then convert the entire property into a new forest home for the Shroomish!

The Greatest Pelipper in History!
2003-12-03
When Ash discovers a sign announcing "The World's Most Powerful Pokémon," he is unable to resist challenging its Trainer, Anthony, to a battle. The Pokémon in question turns out to be a Pelipper, who wins easily by using attacks it shouldn't be able to use. After Ash and the others leave, Team Rocket challenges Anthony and discovers his secret: he's hiding Poké Balls inside Pelipper's enormous bill! With Team Rocket pulling the strings, Anthony continues to take on all challengers, but this time the villains get to keep every Pokémon they defeat! After landing quite a haul, Team Rocket challenges Ash--but they've loaded up poor Pelipper's bill with so many Poké Balls that they overflow. Team Rocket is defeated, the stolen Pokémon are returned, and Anthony decides that he'd rather make Pelipper the world's most powerful Pokémon through honest training!

Max becomes attached to a Poochyena who hasn't yet evolved into a Mightyena like the rest of its group. Though Poochyena doesn't seem ready to evolve yet, and Ash and Brock try to explain that there's more to Pokémon than Evolution, Max becomes obsessed with the idea and takes Poochyena into the forest for training. When Team Rocket swoops in and attempts to nab everyone's Pokémon, Max and Poochyena must work together to defeat them--and the experience lets Poochyena evolve into Mightyena at last!

All Things Bright and Beautifly!
2003-12-07
Ash and friends come across their first Pokémon Contest! These competitions, hosted all over the Hoenn region, focus on the beauty of Pokémon attacks--style and technique count just as much as power! May and Max assist Janet, a Pokémon Coordinator with a beautiful Beautifly. Meanwhile, Janet's friend Chaz helps Ash teach Pikachu to use Iron Tail, a Steel-type attack that may come in handy for his upcoming battle at the Rustboro Gym, which specializes in Rock-type Pokémon. Jessie, in disguise, enters Seviper in the Pokémon Contest. But it's a complete disaster, because Seviper doesn't know any showy attacks. Janet and Beautifly win the contest, but Team Rocket cuts in and tries to steal the finalists' Pokémon. Ash, May, Janet, and Chaz fight them off. May is amazed by the beauty of Pokémon, and it seems like she has found her calling.

Double Battle & Double Kemusso!?
2004-01-03
May is newly determined to win the next Pokémon Contest. She sets out to catch a Wurmple in hopes it will evolve into a Beautifly like Janet's, while her friends sit down to lunch. She crosses paths with Team Rocket and a swarm of angry Beedrill, but a ranger named Franklin and his Heracross rescue her. Back at the campsite, an identical boy, also named Franklin, challenges Ash to a Hoenn-style Double Battle, in which each Trainer sends out two Pokémon at the same time. Pikachu finally learns Iron Tail, although not perfectly. May, with the first Franklin's help, catches Wurmple and hurries back to the campsite. It turns out that the two Franklins are twins named Forrest and Forrester Franklin. Forrest is inspired by May's independence, and decides to go on his own journey. It's good news all 'round--even for Team Rocket, as Jessie manages to catch a Wurmple of her own!

Brock is no luckier in love today than might be expected, though, and the outing becomes more educational than romantic as he and his friends tour the aromatherapy research facility. Above and beyond any continuing experiments, the greatest aromatherapy testimonial comes when a mixture of fragrances alone cures completely an ailing Skitty May had just found.

Man of the Sea! Shitenno Genji Appears!!
2005-11-02
Ash is battling with another Trainer by the waterfront, not realizing he is being watched by a mysterious sailor. After he wins, Ash is confident and boastful. The kids decide to grab something to eat. Team Rocket is currently working in a small restaurant, when the old sailor walks in and demands some hot milk. While he is there, Ash and friends sit down outside and talk about battling. The man approaches them, and Max recognizes him as Drake of the Elite Four! Drake invites all of them (including the disguised Team Rocket) to his boat, where he challenges Ash to a battle. Drake sends out his Shelgon, and though it is slower, it waits for Pikachu to get just close enough to take it down with Dragonbreath and Dragon Claw. Ash calls out Grovyle against Drake's Altaria, and though Grovyle has a better time leaping on the masts of the ship, it gets knocked out by some powerful moves from Altaria, including Aerial Ace and Solar Beam. Team Rocket takes advantage of a weakened Pikachu to steal it, but Drake calls out his Salamence. It uses Dragon Claw and Flamethrower to send the thieves blasting off. With Team Rocket thwarted and a few lessons learned, Ash and friends have dinner with Drake and his crew on the boat.

The kids travel to Wales Island, where both Ash and May have plans to train. May is thrilled when her Bulbasaur learns a new attack--Petal Dance. She shows it off to the others by having Bulbasaur blast through an ocean wave. Max is gathering twigs in the forest when he is surprised by a Cradily. He tells the others but they don't believe him, because Cradily are extinct. Max goes searching by himself, and eventually finds a lab full of Lileep. Ash and the others eventually run into the Cradily, along with a scientist named Annie. She takes them back to the lab, where they are reunited with Max. There, Professor Proctor and Annie explain to the kids that all of the Pokémon there were cloned from fossils. Someday Professor Proctor hopes to make the island a fossil Pokémon amusement park. One of the Anorith at the lab is about to evolve, so they bring it out and watch it become an Armaldo. Team Rocket shows up, and grabs the newly-evolved Armaldo in a net. It blasts them away on its own, but freaks out and starts trashing the lab, running off. The kids try to corral it with their Pokémon, but Armaldo won't be beaten. It heads to the tip of the island to find some fruit that it can eat. There, Team Rocket appears in a giant tank and grabs it again. It can't break out, and none of the other Pokémon's attacks affect the tank. May has her Bulbasaur use Petal Dance on the cliff above the tank which landslides, causing the tank to roll over. Armaldo breaks out, and Bulbasaur and Pikachu destroy the tank, sending Team Rocket blasting away. Armaldo finally reaches the berries, while everyone enjoys the sunset.

Izabe Island Pokémon Contest! Beware of the Rival!!
2005-11-06
The kids are still headed for Izabe Island, where May will compete in her next Pokémon Contest with Bulbasaur. Meanwhile, Team Rocket has just bought a cartload of berries to make PokéBlocks out of. Unfortunately, they aren't a type that PokéBlocks can be made out of. On board the boat, May meets a Trainer named Harley and his Cacturne. He is quickly annoyed by her though, because she doesn't recognize what a Cacturne is, nor does she bestow highest compliments on his cookies! Just prior to the Purika City contest, Max is nowhere to be found, until he runs up alongside Harley. May goes out and impresses the crowd with her Bulbasaur's Razor Leaf and Vine Whip, while Harley's Cacturne stuns the crowd with its lightning-fast Bullet Seed. Both of them progress to the next round. In the next round, Cacturne quickly takes out an Azurill. Harley tells May that her opponent, a Surskit, is slow in battle, so her Bulbasaur moves in close to the Surskit. She is surprised when Surskit's Quick Attack deals a beating to her Bulbasaur--in fact, that Surskit is known for its impressive speed! May eventually recovers enough to claim victory. In the next round, May faces off against Harley, and she's doing well with a strong combo of Vine Whip and Tackle. Just then, a recording plays over the loudspeakers--it's Max, telling an embarrassing story about May to Harley. She is mortified and angry, allowing Cacturne to hit Bulbasaur hard. Ash calls out to May, giving her focus. She combines Petal Dance and Razor Leaf for a beautiful knock-out blow. May wins the ribbon, and the kids head off. Meanwhile, Team Rocket is dreaming of being highly-successful PokéBlock vendors...

Claydol Big and Tall
2005-12-03
Ash and friends continue their journey across Izabe Island, where they spot a giant stone Poké Ball atop a cliff. They meet a sage named Sigourney, who tells them the story of the giant ball. Once upon a time, a great destructive power was released, but was sealed inside a giant stone Poké Ball by a powerful sage and left in the lake. Team Rocket overhears this and of course, wants to steal the giant Poké Ball. They show up at the lake and drop bombs on the stone ball, breaking it open. A huge Claydol emerges and headed toward the village, blasting energy that destroys everything in its path. Ash tries to catch it in a regular Poké Ball, but it doesn't work, and neither does attacking it. They realize they need to lure the Claydol toward the other giant stone Poké Ball. Team Rocket wants to help too, though they have their own wicked motives. Sigourney reads from an old book that Claydol likes eggplants, so Ash and James dress up as eggplants to lure the Claydol to the rock. It turns out Claydol actually hates eggplants, and they escape just in time. Next, they try to use beautiful maidens to lure the Pokémon in (also from the book), with May, Jessie, Meowth, and Wobbuffet dressing up. The Claydol ends up chasing Wobbuffet down a crevasse toward the Poké Ball. The kids push the Poké Ball down the hill, where it gets stuck. A combined attack from Mudkip, Lombre, and Pikachu frees it, and the stone ball finally rolls down to Claydol, capturing the giant Pokémon inside. Team Rocket then tries to get away in their balloon with the giant Poké Ball, but it's too heavy and they crash elsewhere. The ball rolls away, ending up in the middle of the lake.

Falling in Love with Kucheat! Hasubrero's Flower Arrangement!!
2005-11-30
Ash and Brock face off for a friendly training battle. Ash pits his Torkoal against Brock's Lombre, which it seems like a mismatch until Torkoal lets loose with Overheat, sending Lombre rocketing across the forest. The kids run after it, where they meet a Mawile that's become quite attracted to Lombre, along with its Trainer Samantha. Brock sees Mawile's crush as a way to get close to Samantha, and begs Lombre to be nice. Samantha performs ribbon dances with Mawile, so the two of them demonstrate. The entire group starts walking to a nearby town, when Brock spots a bouquet on the road. He goes to grab it, but it's a Team Rocket trap. They grab Mawile, and Lombre doesn't put up much of a fight. It takes Torkoal and Corphish to sort things out, and Corphish develops a crush on Mawile! But Mawile doesn't like Corphish, breaking its heart. That night, Samantha and Mawile are set to perform for a huge crowd, but the show is interrupted by Team Rocket once again. In a cloud of smoke, they grab a Pokémon--Lombre! Jessie and James are dismayed to find they made a mistake, though Lombre and Wobbuffet get along well. Leaving Brock behind to manage the crowd (with Corphish's help), the others catch up to the thieves, and Jessie puts up a fight simply because Ash wants Lombre back. Lombre finally puts up a fight, protecting Mawile. After the thieves blast off again, the kids return Lombre to Brock. During Samantha and Mawile's performance, Lombre wanders over to Samantha's backpack, taking a Water Stone out of it--and evolving into Ludicolo! It jumps on stage and joins the performance, amusing the crowd. The show is a success, but Mawile doesn't like Ludicolo now. A disappointed Brock joins Ludicolo in a happy dance to recover from their heartbreak.

2005-12-07
Lost in a desert, Ash and his friends see lots of identical pits in the ground--Trapinch burrows! A young woman named Elisa warns them they're trespassing on hazardous territory: these burrows connect to the many caves of the Trapinch Underground Labyrinth. Enter Hal, a Pokémon researcher and Elisa's old friend. He's being chased by a Donphan, but Elisa's Meganium clams Donphan down. It turns out that Hal once fell into a Trapinch burrow and discovered a lake in the Labyrinth--a lake where Trapinch gather and evolve into Vibrava! Now he's attached a transmitter to a Trapinch so he can find the lake again. Team Rocket appears and seizes Pikachu with their Diglett Supreme machine. But after Brock's Ludicolo breaks it and more Trapinch chew the machine to bits, Team Rocket and Pikachu don't have a leg (or machine) to stand on, and they fall into a burrow! Ash, Elisa, and Trapinch jump in after them, followed by Hal. As Max, Brock, and May wonder what to do, they fall into the burrow themselves and meet Elisa, Ash, and Trapinch. Trapinch wanders away just before the tunnel floods with water, sweeping Ash and his friends into the underground lake where Pikachu is already waiting. Trapinch strolls in, followed by Hal, and a happy reunion follows. Everyone watches a nearby group of Trapinch evolve into Vibrava--until Team Rocket swoops in and nets all the newly-evolved Pokémon. Brock and Elisa use Ludicolo and Meganium to free the trapped Vibrava, who then use Supersonic to deflect Team Rocket's attacks. Pikachu sends Team Rocket blasting off, the Vibrava fly everyone back to the surface, and all's well again as Ash and his friends head for the next town!

Absol! Creeping Shadow of Disaster
2006-01-07
Ash is approaching the next town on Izabe Island when a sudden surge in the river destroys the bridge he was about to cross. An Absol is spotted in the wreckage, and the locals arrive to capture it. The town's bridges were mysteriously destroyed after the usually reclusive Absol began to appear in town about a month ago, so people now blame Absol for the disasters. Absol escapes, but the town has hired Absol hunters: Team Rocket in disguise! One boy, Nicky, still believes Absol is harmless--his brother, Gordon, set out to prove Absol's innocence weeks ago but never returned. Ash joins Nicky to find the truth, and they spot Absol just before a geyser erupts from a cliff, stranding Nicky, Max, and Pikachu. To everyone's surprise, Absol helps save the day, as does a Heracross that turns out to belong to Gordon. Gordon has finally returned after learning more about Absol. With his help, our heroes figure out that Absol was trying to warn the townspeople about the spring that feeds the river. There's much more water in the spring than usual, which means it could burst and flood the town. Sure enough, the water bursts out of the rocks, and it takes everyone's Pokémon working together with Absol to divert the flood with a giant boulder. A soggy Team Rocket makes a half-hearted attempt to nab Pikachu, but Absol puts a quick stop to that. With their homes now safe, the locals realize that Absol was harmless after all, and everyone is now a little wiser for the experience.

Ash's Grovyle has been confused by Luvdisc's Sweet Kiss and before it can snap out of it, Luvdisc knocks it out with Water Gun! Corphish must step up to take Grovyle's place. Team Rocket has dressed James up as Juan to attract an audience for their Water Illusion show, but back at the Gym, it's a tense back and forth as Corphish confronts Luvdisc. Luvdisc is fast, and when Corphish's attack creates a rain-like shower of water, its Swift Swim makes it even faster! But once that effect dissipates, Corphish wins the round, only to be defeated by Juan's next Pokémon, Whiscash. With no Water Pokémon and no talent, Team Rocket's Water Illusion is a very poor Water Pokémon talent show, but they've got a Plan B: sell merchandise and autographs! Naturally Team Rocket tries to swindle all their customers, but it turns out that Juan's fans include some tough Water Pokémon Trainers--never mess with a lady and her Blastoise! Team Rocket's plan is now officially all wet. After Swellow defeats Whiscash, Juan sends out his secret weapon: Milotic! Milotic takes down Swellow and then faces off with Pikachu.

Start the Preliminaries! Masamune Appears!!
2006-03-01
Where's Morrison? That's the question on Ash's mind as he trains his Pokémon in preparation for the big tournament in Ever Grande City. When Morrison finally makes his appearance, he and Ash immediately start up their friendly rivalry again, which leads to them falling into a Team Rocket pit trap! Tyson and his Meowth in boots show up just in time to help out--Tyson's Meowth defeats Team Rocket's Meowth once more, using Iron Tail to send the villains flying. Once everyone is registered for the tournament, the one-on-one preliminary rounds get underway. Morrison and Beldum face a Trainer with an Electabuzz, and Morrison is relying solely on Beldum's Take Down attack. This doesn't work too well until Beldum evolves into Metang and wins the match. As for Tyson, his Meowth takes some hits from a Persian, then comes back to win its first round. But once Persian is knocked out, Meowth charges after it and Tyson must recall it to its Poké Ball. Tyson later explains why his Meowth is so troubled. When he met Meowth, it was lying hurt in a forest after a Persian defeated it in a battle for leadership. Tyson took care of Meowth, which was how it got its boots--originally they were just to help protect its injured legs. But to this day it still has a grudge against Persian. And now it's Ash's turn to battle! Pikachu handily wins its round, so all three Trainers can look forward to their next challenge in the Hoenn League.

A Judgement Brawl
2006-03-08
The first round of the Victory Tournament finds Ash in a tight spot. He has three Pokémon remaining; Katie, his opponent, has four. Katie's Golduck faces Corphish on a water field and uses its attack to confuse Corphish. Luckily, even confused, Corphish is one tough Pokémon! Its haphazard attacks manage to defeat Golduck. Then it's a tense series of battles as Ash rallies and knocks out all of Katie's Pokémon until only her Walrein remains! Walrein knocks out Swellow and Corphish with no problem, but Ash's spur of the moment tactics and Groyvle's fighting ability are still a force to be reckoned with. Walrein's Ice Beam has the side effect of freezing over the water, which means it can no longer dive to avoid attacks, and Grovyle takes full advantage of the situation to strike fast and hard. Victory to Ash! The next round draw is completed, and to their mutual shock, Ash and Morrison will be battling each other. Morrison runs off, stunned by the thought of battling his friend. And where has Team Rocket been all this time? Still working hard to sell snacks at the stadium! Their boss will even take them out for dinner if things keep going well. Will the promise of food actually keep Team Rocket out of trouble? The next day, Morrison and Ash begin their match. Morrison doesn't have the heart to battle, and his Girafarig is quickly beaten by Corphish. Will he recover in time to make it a good match, or will this experience affect his friendship with Ash?

He's almost disqualified before he decides to send Growlithe out against Ash's Corphish. But Morrison doesn't have Growlithe attack, and his Pokémon is quickly knocked out. Ash angrily demands to know why Morrison isn't fighting, which makes Morrison realize his Pokémon are counting on him to give it his best, too. He rallies and brings out Swampert--both it and Corphish unleash their strongest attacks, resulting in a double KO! It's time for a battlefield change and Morrison apologizes to Ash. Then, Pikachu and Morrison's Steelix take to the grass battlefield. Another head-to-head battle results in Pikachu out of the match, and Torkoal is defeated as well! It's up to Grovyle to beat Steelix, but Morrison's agile Gligar gets the better of their aerial battle. Gligar and Ash's Swellow have another double KO, so this match will be decided by Glalie and Metang. Some clever strategy wins the day for Ash, who becomes one of only 8 semifinalists! Elsewhere, Team Rocket's work as snack sellers pays off when their boss takes them to the all-you-can-eat buffet as a reward. But is he making a big mistake in trusting them? And Ash and Tyson will face each other in the semifinals, in a match that begins with a real bang!

At the halftime break, Morrison tries to give Ash a pep talk. When the match resumes, Swellow and Hariyama battle until Swellow is the victor. Swellow then goes on to beat Tyson's Donphan, but Tyson has a powerful Metagross waiting! Despite Swellow's determination, Metagross knocks it out--but Swellow did some damage, and Ash sends Grovyle out to hammer on that weak spot. Grovyle still can't stop Metagross but Pikachu finishes the job, so Tyson sends out the ace up his sleeve: his Meowth! Team Rocket's Meowth cheers its fellow Pokémon on from the stands. Tyson's Meowth can counter Pikachu's Thunderbolt with one of its own, so the battle comes down to Iron Tail vs Iron Tail. Exhausted, both Pokémon finally fall to the ground, and though they get back up, Pikachu cannot continue. Team Rocket's Meowth is delighted, but not for long--Jessie and James have been caught stealing Pokémon by their new boss, who sends all three flying!

Ash has opted to battle Articuno with Charizard in his Battle Factory match. Now he's busy training with Charizard, who has gotten even stronger during its time in the Charicific Valley. Team Rocket, secretly watching from the roof of the Battle Factory, are hopeful they can snatch the impressive Pokémon for themselves. But when the battle gets underway, the roof of the Battle Factory opens and they fall into the main chamber where everyone can see them. Articuno and Charizard waste no time in clearing out the intruders before Noland and Ash get down to business. This Articuno is tough and knows a Water-type attack, so Charizard is in for a rough time. The two Pokémon wage a fast-paced flying battle that looks like it might end in Noland's favor as Articuno ices up Charizard's wing. Good thing for Ash that Charizard has a new trick in store: Overheat! Articuno also packs a powerful Steel Wing, but Charizard grabs it mid-attack and turns the move into a Seismic Toss. Articuno tries to get back up and battle, to no avail. Ash is awarded the Knowledge Symbol along with a Frontier Folio to hold his Battle Frontier Symbols, and Noland congratulates him on a battle well-fought. Next stop, the Battle Arena!

She sees people going in to check out the hall, so she goes inside too. On stage is a woman who looks suspiciously like Vivian from the Hoenn region, practicing with an Espeon. May's Squirtle gets so excited that it runs on stage. It turns out that the woman is actually Lillian, Vivian's younger sister. May takes her Pokémon to the Pokémon Center for a check-up, and is surprised to meet Nurse Joy's new assistant--Harley! Harley is overwhelmingly nice to May, and even tells her that she can switch Pokémon during the contest, which turns out to be true. Harley also tells her that she can register with her Hoenn Contest Pass until 11 the next day--which isn't true. But May believes him since he was telling the truth before. Meanwhile, a disguised Jessie registers for the Pokémon Contest, and asks James if she can borrow Cacnea. But when Jessie tries to form a bond with Cacnea, it ends up getting stuck in her hair and James and Meowth rush her to the Pokémon Center.

May ends up teaming up with Harley to free the Pokémon, and even more unexpected help comes from Squirtle, who uses a newly-learned Ice Beam to send the thieves blasting off.

A Hurdle for Squirtle
2006-06-04
The contest in Saffron City is about to begin! Harley ends up apologizing to May, but it rings hollow given his history of hating May. He goes first, and really impresses the crowd with his Cacturne's combination of Cotton Spore and Needle Arm. A disguised Jessie comes up to the stage, impressing and horrifying the crowd when she embraces James' Cacnea, followed by a firework-laden Pin Missile. May brings Combusken up, performing a great combination of Fire Spin and Sky Uppercut. All three of them make it to the next round. Jessie and Harley are opponents next, and Jessie's strategy is to send in Wobbuffet knowing that its defensive moves could knock out Harley's Ariados. Harley is quite aware of this, and orders his Pokémon to do nothing. Frustrated and annoyed, Lillian issues them yellow cards, knocking down their points. Harley finally strikes, using String Shot to tie up Wobbuffet and move it like a helpless puppet. Eventually Wobbuffet is thrown in the air and knocked out of battle. May makes through her next battle fine, and faces Harley in the finals. May has elected to use Squirtle, and the little Pokémon has a rough start, especially when it uses an Ice Beam that is too strong for it! Harley tries String Shot again, stringing up Squirtle near the ceiling. Ariados then uses Spider Web to cover the entire stage. May orders Squirtle to use Ice Beam again, which frees it from the Spider Web and freezes the stage--and Ariados! With the Bug-and-Poison-type out of the way, May wins the Saffron Ribbon. May is thrilled, and Ash is hyped for his next Frontier battle.

After May and Brock arrive, it is finally explained that Kyle is the son of Master Hamm, and that Hamm wants Kyle to take over the dojo. Kyle would rather make noodles. Unwilling to compromise, they decide to have a Pokémon battle to sort it out. Master Hamm's back gives out as they start, so Ash offers to take his place. Kyle doesn't like this, so May takes Kyle's place. Ash and May both practice, using Master Hamm and Kyle's Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan. They soon begin a formal battle, but are interrupted by Team Rocket, determined to steal the Fighting-type Pokémon. Terri steps in with her Hitmontop, freeing Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan just before Pikachu sends Team Rocket blasting off. Everyone is disappointed that the battle wasn't finished, and Kyle admits he's been trying to make noodles as good as his father's all along. Terri offers to take over the dojo, since it happens that managing a dojo like that was her dream. It turns out that Master Hamm's dream was to sell noodles from a cart. In the end, everyone gets what they want, including May, who gets to try some delicious noodles made by Master Hamm!

Professor Oak sends Ash his Torkoal to face off against Registeel, a Legendary Pokémon who's fighting on Brandon's team, and the matchup seems to be going his way...until his overconfidence gets the better of him, and Brandon's power and experience prove too much for the young Trainer. The Frontier Brain offers some valuable words of wisdom, which Ash takes to heart, and promises to battle him again as soon as he returns from his quest for a mysterious Pokémon!

We also find a VERY hungry Team Rocket searching for something to eat. Miraculously, they stumble upon a huge pile of berries, obviously gathered by someone else, which they happily steal. However, it turns out this pile of berries has been gathered by a group of very sad Pokémon headed up by a Golduck, who after discovering a trio of Ludicolo dancing near what's left of the berry pile, accuses the Ludicolo of steaking their berries, which of course they deny. This leads to infighting among the various Pokémon, which leads Team Rocket into fueling the fighting in hopes of stealing all the involved Pokémon. When Piplup stumbles upon the Golduck and the angry Pokémon, Piplup agrees to represent the Pokémon to the Ludicolo, demanding the stolen berries be returned to their rightful owners. But after some brave and fierce battling with Team Rocket and their arsenal of machines, it is discovered that Team Rocket had in fact stolen the berries, The Golduck and Ludicolo make amends, and in the process, Piplup perfects the very battle moves they had worked so hard on, signaling Dawn and Piplup's readiness for the upcoming Jubelife City Pokémon Contest!

2007-06-04
Continuing on their way through the Sinnoh region, our Heroes come across a budding trainer named Minnie and her Scizor. She explains that she's looking for a new Gym called the Powerzone Gym, which is reputed to take any losing Pokémon under their wing and 'train' them to become stronger. The Powerzone Gym is, in truth, a phony Gym run by Team Rocket to steal their losing opponents' Pokémon when they leave them at the Gym to be 'trained'. So when our Heroes show up looking to challenge the Gym, the thought of stealing Ash's Pikachu and Minnie's Scizor is too tempting to pass up. Jessie, disguised as Princess Powerzone, is battling with a Croagunk that had crossed paths with Meowth earlier, and after some bad calls by referee James, emerges victorious against both Minnie and Ash. They blow their cover as they attempt to escape with both Pikachu, Scizor and a host of stolen Pokeballs, but after a few choice attacks Team Rocket is defeated and the 2 Pokémon and all the Pokeballs are returned. Surprisingly, Croagunk remains behind as Team Rocket blasts off, and makes it known to Brock that it wants to join their journey. Minnie and Scizor go back to the fake Gym to return the stolen Pokeballs to their rightful owners, and without so much as one attack, Croagunk becomes Brock's newest Pokémon!

Arriving in Floaroma Town for Dawn's next Pokémon Contest and as our Heroes marvel at its natural beauty, Dawn notices that there is going to be a Poffin cooking class that day - Poffins being a well - known Pokémon snack food made out of tree berries in the Sinnoh region. After pleading with Ash and Brock to take the class with her, they discover the teacher is a young woman named Forsythia, who has a shy Roserade as her Pokémon partner. The class begins, and while Dawn discovers she still has much to learn about Poffin making, Ash discovers, as he burns his first batch, that he REALLY has much to learn! Meanwhile, Team Rocket has disovered Poffins as well, and decides they can make a fortune by stealing hordes of berries from Forsythia's orchard and making Poffins themselves in order to sell it to the many Coordinators who will be at the upcoming Floaroma Contest. But when they discover that Forsythia's 'shy' Roserade turns out to be a super - strong WARRIOR, they attempt to steal Roserade as well! Roserade, however, is MUCH too much for Team Rocket to handle, and they find their bad day spent by having TWO blast offs instead of one. Dawn finally perfects her Poffin recipe, and our Heroes all find themselves much wiser - not just from learning the fine art of making Poffins, but also the fine art of what truly caring for your Pokémon - as Forsythia has done with her Roserade - has done for that amazing Pokémon!

However, the combination of Prinplup and Pikachu proves too much for the hapless Team Rocket duo, and they're sent blasting off again, as Jessie gets her nails done - at a beauty salon, of course. When the Contest begins, it appears Dawn and her Pachirisu are doing wonderfully, when all of a sudden Pachirisu gets another case of the jitters, leaving the whole arena wondering if they will be able to continue.

This match-up was in Gardenia's favor so Ash called Turtwig back. Next was Staravia, who we all know beat Cherubi the last time they met in Eterna Forest. This match-up was Speed vs. Speed but Staravia was a Flying Type Pokemon who made a difference. Cherubi was knocked out. Next was Gardenia's Turtwig. Still Staravia wants some revenge after her Turtwig knocked out Staravia in their previous battle. The outcome came after Turtwig launched Leech Seed and Staravia falling for it. Turtwig wins that round. The next match-up was Turtwig vs. Turtwig. Ash's Turtwig was hoping not to lose this battle. When Gardenia's Turtwig launched a second Leech Seed attack, we thought this would be the end of his Turtwig. But a smart thinking by Ash was to dodge her Turtwig's Leaf Storm attack by jumping towards the sun and using Syntesis. The end of this round concludes with Ash's Turtwig as the victorious one. Gardenia has one Pokemon left: her secret weapon, Roserade. This Pokemon knocked out Turtwig with one Weather Ball attack. Weather Ball's type depends on the weather. The Final Round was Aipom vs. Roserade. Aipom had some advantages over that Grass Knot attack when Aipom used Double Team. In the end Aipom is victorious and Ash wins the Forest Badge.

This infuriates Jessie, and she is left to go it alone, attempting to first steal the Electrike, and then Pikachu.

Before the 2nd day of the Hearthome City Tag Battle gets underway, we join Ash as he does some last minute training. We also find Paul doing the same, but it becomes painfully obvious that Paul is pushing his Chimchar way beyond its limit, and our Heroes soon discover the reason: when Paul first discovered Chimchar, he witnessed a power that he had never been able to duplicate since that 1st encounter, so Paul had been driving Chimchar mercilessly - training to recreate that power. Now, at this point Chimchar is exhausted, and both Brock and Nurse Joy warn Paul not to use Chimchar for their upcoming 2nd match. Of course, he ignores their warnings. But thanks to Ash's leadership and Turtwig's skill, their team emerges victorious - even after Paul has given up on Chimchar while the match is still underway. Paul later tells a sad and shaken Chimchar to leave, but Ash then asks Chimchar to join them on their journey, leaving us to wonder what will eventually become of this most emotional and unusual situation.

And when Brock spies a pretty young woman named Isis in what he assumes is danger, he rushes to help her, but finds out she is speaking with the head engineer and town mayor about the 3 day deadline to complete construction. It is later learned that the original master stonecutter had left his job because of a bad back, and now she has been given the job of master stonecutter! The head engineer is angrily warning that the bridge has to be done on time or his reputation would be ruined. But we soon learn that the Bibarel in charge of cutting the stone is sleeping on the job - a result of its teacher, the master stonecutter with the supposed bad back, leaving. Our Heroes offer their assistance in helping to finish the job, but without precise stonecutting it is impossible. Meanwhile, Team Rocket has their eyes on stealing Bibarel, and along with capturing the 4 Machamp and Machoke construction workers, appears to have succeeded, until Bibarel has had enough and gnaws through their cage, sending the hapless trio blasting off again. But Bibarel is still unwilling to do its job, until the master stonecutter reappears and informs everyone that the head engineer's blueprints were faulty, banishing the selfish boss from the construction project. And with our Heroes' help, a very happy Bibarel is back on the job, and the bridge is miraculously constructed on time!

Everyone's a Rival! Mikuri Cup!!
2008-08-31
The moment of the Wallace Cup has finally arrived, and the entrants include more than a couple of our Heroes - Dawn, May, Ash, and Zoey! With Wallace himself as one of the judges, the competition kicks off with May, who puts on a dazzling performance with her Wartortle, who everyone remembers was her Squirtle before it evolved. Next up is Jessie, disguised as Jessilina and feeling CONFIDENT! Surprisingly, she uses the same flying trick as in her previous Contest appearance, much to everyone's disappointment and her eventual disqualification. Up next is Zoey, who puts on a fabulous performance with her Finneon, followed by a snappily dressed Ash, who teams up with his Buizel for an aggressive yet appealing show. All the while Dawn has been watching everything with growing worry and apprehension, until an angry Piplup snaps her out of it with some not - so - gentle Bubble Beam "coaxing". Gratefully, Dawn takes the stage, and puts on a magnificent performance with her Ampibom. It is then discovered that all four of our Heroes are going onto the 2nd round, much to everyone's happiness. Warning Dawn to be confident, but not OVER confident, we leave everyone anticipating the next day's sure - to - be - exciting round TWO!

While Dawn, May, Ash and Zoey head into the second stage at the Wallace Cup, Dawn is up first, as she begins to regain some of the confidence she had struggled with for awhile now. Which obviously is working, because along with her Buneary she WINS! Next up is Ash, again partnering with his Buizel. But, although launching an unusual and powerful Ice Aqua Jet (invented by Dawn), Kyle and his amazing Lanturn prove too much and Ash is defeated, while that Ice Aqua Jet becomes the talk of the Contest! As the second round continues, Zoey and May both get their victories as well, leaving Dawn with the daunting prospect that should she win and go on to the finals, she will be facing one of her two dear friends! Laughter and good - natured ribbing abounds at the thought of it, but - as Dawn faces Kyle, the question remains: who will Dawn face for the finals, should she defeat Kyle? May...or Zoey?!

2008-10-01
After Kyle and Lanturn defeat Ash and Buizel, we find Kyle teamed up with his Crawdaunt and facing off against Dawn and Piplup, to see who will move on to the semifinals - while May and Zoey wait for their semifinal battle. When Dawn is ultimately successful, she finds herself facing May for the finals, after May defeats Zoey in a real point squeaker, determined by the clock. Vowing to have 'no hard feelings no matter who wins', Dawn once again teams up with Piplup, while May calls upon her powerful Glaceon to battle. The fierce attacks fly back and forth, while Ash, Brock and Zoey marvel at the abilities of both Coordinators to use moves that are powerful, yet truly show off their Pokémon - while at the same time May and Dawn marvel at each other's work admiringly. With points almost equal, the battling chases down the clock, until time is up. But who should end up winning the prestigious Aqua Ribbon in a super - close finish, but DAWN! Happy to have seen everyone once again, May leaves the Sinnoh region, vowing to be the winner the next time she and Dawn have a battle. And our Heroes continue on their quests: Ash to join the Sinnoh League, and a revitalized Dawn to become TOP Contest Coordinator!

Yanyanma! Capture Operation!!
2008-10-08
As our Heroes make their way to Pastoria City, and while Dawn continues to marvel at her 2nd Pokémon Contest victory, they suddenly come across a Yanma, pursued by a beginning trainer named Tyler. Along with his Piplup named Pippy, Tyler has been trying to secure his first Pokémon catch for three days, but to no avail. Remembering what it was like to catch their 1st Pokémon, our Heroes volunteer to help Tyler in his quest. But just as he's 1 step away from being successful, who should step in and grab the Yanma but Jessie, and Team Rocket! Thrilled with their success, they decide right away to send it to the Boss, thinking that will secure Giovanni's admiration. But Giovanni sends the Yanma BACK to T.R., although they think it's because the Boss is just being generous. Soon Tyler and our Heroes decide the only thing to do is for Tyler to capture a different Pokémon, and right away another Yanma appears! But as they close in on another capture, Team Rocket appears yet again, as they've decided to capture another Yanma in the same lazy, crooked way as before, to send to the Boss. Suddenly the 1st Yanma evolves into a Yanmega, and some fierce battling ensues. But our Heroes emerge victorious, and Team Rocket is sent blasting off again - this time with Jessie's Yanmega as the newest member of the Team Rocket family. Again, Tyler attempts to capture the 2nd Yanma, and after 2 attempts which include some action - packed battling on Tyler and Pippy's parts, they are finally successful. Thanking them for all their help, Tyler, Pippy and Yanma head off to Lake Valor, as Ash and friends continue on to Pastoria City, happy they were able to help a brand new trainer realize his dream.

The Scorching Hikozaru!
2008-10-05
As our Heroes continue on their Sinnoh region journey with Pastoria City as their next stop, it becomes obvious that Ash's Gligar can't WAIT to have its first battle. But Ash insists Gligar's not ready yet, and to practice more first. That's when Brock offers to do just that with Gligar. A battle begins, when suddenly Gligar is carried away on a strong wind, landing right in front of none other than Paul! When Ash finally finds Paul and Gligar, the fighting between the two rivaling trainers starts all over again, culminating in Ash challenging Paul to a battle right then and there. At first there is no response from Paul, until Chimchar (who of course Paul once trained) insists they battle. Intrigued, Paul agrees, and Ash's choice for his first Pokémon battle partner is the highly motivated but inexperienced Gligar, who is defeated after one hit from Paul's powerful Gliscor. Next up is Paul's Ursaring, and Chimchar's insistence brings it up to be Ash's next battle partner. But Ursaring's Secret Power causes Chimchar to be filled with fear, and it appears all is lost for the little Fire - type, until the same power that Paul had previously been unable to awaken in Chimchar before now explodes with a VENGEANCE, and Ursaring is roundly defeated. However, Chimchar now seems demonically possessed, and it takes every ounce of strength Ash can muster to get Chimchar to calm down after winning. Defeated, Paul leaves, leaving Ash and Chimchar vowing to train harder than ever, and someday win the entire Sinnoh League!

However, Wake invites our Heroes to come along with him, and they find themselves first frantically following Wake onto a train, and then surrounded by a mammoth crowd of Croagunk! It turns out that the night of the annual Pastoria Great Marsh Croagunk Festival is upon them. This is when the townspeople honor the Croagunk they have raised with a competition - capped off with the winning Croagunk receiving a Diamond and Pearl - studded crown! Brock decides to enter HIS Croagunk, as does Team Rocket - using a Croagunk - disguised Meowth for their entry. They also discover that the finalist will go up against the previous year's winner - a Croagunk named Craig, along with Craig's proud trainer Hamilton. Hamilton, who has been trying to get Nurse Joy's Croagunk named Chrissy to marry Craig, will not take no for an answer, so Brock valiantly vows that HIS Croagunk will win this year's competition and save Chrissy from the unwanted matrimony. But after Meowth loses the second round, Team Rocket finally decides to simply steal the many Croagunk in Pastoria City, and although Brock's Croagunk battles against Craig in the finals, Chrissy comes to the rescue with some amazing moves and sets all the town's Croagunk free! All agree that Chrissy should be this year's winner, and Wake also agrees to battle Ash the following morning, leaving everyone to enjoy the rest of the evening's festivities.

At Professor Sycamore's research lab, Serena has to choose between Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie for her first Pokémon. After learning about the three with her new Pokédex, she tells the professor she made her choice even before she got there. It's Fennekin! Meanwhile, our heroes are on their way to Santalune City for Ash's first Gym battle, and Bonnie is demonstrating just how much she loves to take care of Pokémon. She gives Pikachu a bath, then helps Fletchling clean its wings. The two Pokémon are happily settling in for some snacks when the Dedenne our heroes encountered earlier leaps out of a nearby bush and nabs the food! Bonnie wants Clemont to catch this adorable Pokémon for her, but it goes running off, and everyone follows... Pikachu follows Dedenne into its burrow, but they end up at the base of a tall cliff, unable to get back to the rest of the gang. To make matters worse, Team Rocket has been observing the two Pokémon, and now their plan to catch Pikachu includes catching Dedenne, too! Our heroes catch up, a fierce battle ensues, and Team Rocket is left empty-handed--but Dedenne has been hurt! To restore it, Clemont produces another one of his inventions. This electric generator quickly gets Dedenne recharged, but then Clemont can't turn the machine off, and it explodes. Dedenne is OK, though, and with Clemont's gift of healing electricity, it's decided it wants to join the group! Meanwhile, as she travels through an ominous forest, Serena realizes it'll be getting dark soon and wants to find a Pokémon Center where she and Fennekin can stay for the night. She sees someone behind a tree and asks for directions--but what looked like a woman in a striped dress turns out to be a wild Vespiquen! When it attacks, Fennekin leaps to Serena's rescue and scares it off. Then, Nurse Joy and Wigglytuff show up to investigate the sounds of battle--and point the way to the nearby Pokémon Center. Relieved and happy, Serena races Fennekin all the way there!

The Hakudan Gym Battle! The Magnificent Viviyon's Dance Battle!!
2014-02-05
Our heroes have finally arrived in Hakudan City, and Satoshi can't wait for his first Kalos region Gym battle. Satoshi and Eureka can't seem to run fast enough to get there, but Citron is having trouble keeping up. They're unsure of the Gym's location, but a photographer offers them directions after snapping a wonderful photo of Satoshi and Pikachu. Thanks to her, they find the Hakudan Gym, where they run into Pansy and Erikiteru. Pansy figured they would be there to challenge her Gym Leader sister soon, so she waited for them. Then, the Gym Leader arrives: it's Viola, the photographer they met earlier. After a tour of the Gym, which contains a gallery of Viola's excellent photographs, it's time for Satoshi's challenge. Satoshi starts out with Pikachu, while Viola uses Surskit. And soon after the battle begins, someone else arrives to join Alexa, Clemont, and Bonnie on the sidelines...Serena. Viola uses Ametama's Ice Beam to turn the Gym into a frozen battlefield. Pikachu has trouble moving on the slippery surface, and Ametama quickly gains the upper hand, leaving Satoshi with one Pokémon left: Yayakoma. As a Flying type, Yayakoma not only has a type advantage over Ametama, but can also avoid the icy battlefield completely. Yayakoma defeats Ametama, and Viola brings out Viviyon, whose powerful Gust attack knocks Yayakoma into a Sticky Web left by Ametama's earlier attack. Yayakoma can't get away, and Viviyon quickly brings the challenge to an end. However, Satoshi is determined to get a rematch, and Viola says he's welcome to return anytime. Satoshi and the others rush to the Pokémon Center to get help for Pikachu and Yayakoma, but Serena notices that Satoshi has forgotten his backpack and follows after them. Pansy offers to help Satoshi train for his rematch. After several failed attempts to stand steady against the force of Onvern's Gust, Pikachu, Yayakoma, and Satoshi are all exhausted and frustrated. Serena offers Satoshi her support...and a question: does he remember her?

Decisive Battle on the Ice! Pikachu VS Viviyon!!
2014-02-02
After his defeat at the Santalune City Gym, Ash is having doubts that he can defeat Gym Leader Viola in a rematch. But Serena reminds him that he's always been determined not to give up until it's over. This snaps Ash out of his self-doubt and inspires him to do some serious training with Pikachu and Fletchling against Alexa's Noivern! Standing up to Noivern's Gust is hard work, but soon Ash feels like they're ready. He also has an idea about how to deal with the ice battlefield if Viola uses that trick again, but he's not telling. Since they also had trouble with Surskit's Sticky Web, Clemont shows off one of his inventions: a machine that reproduces Sticky Web exactly! The machine shoots a couple of webs so Pikachu and Fletchling can practice dodging, but when Clemont tries to turn up the intensity, it blows up. Undeterred, Ash asks Froakie to throw its Frubbles to simulate Sticky Web attacks, and the team seems to be as ready for a rematch as they can be... The next day, it's obvious from the start that their intense training is paying off. Pikachu digs in with its tail to stay upright on the icy battlefield and defeats Surskit! Ash then sends Fletchling out for a rematch against Vivillon, but Viola's Pokémon has another move they didn't know about: Sleep Powder! The snoozing Fletchling can't avoid Vivillon's powerful Solar Beam, and Viola evens the score at one Pokémon each. Ash has to call Pikachu back in, even though it's worn out from beating Surskit. Vivillon uses Sleep Powder again--but Ash's voice cuts through Pikachu's sleepiness, telling it to use Electro Ball on itself! This shocking strategy wakes Pikachu up so it can defeat Vivillon with a final Thunderbolt, and Ash wins the match and the Bug Badge! Alexa suggests the Cyllage City Gym for their next destination, and after a few farewells, Ash, Clemont, and Bonnie head off--along with Serena, who isn't yet sure where she's going...

Leave It to Serena!? The Exciting Sihorn Race!
2014-03-01
Satoshi, Citron, and Eureka convince Serena to join them on their travels! She returns a handkerchief Satoshi lent her long ago at summer camp, and he finally remembers her as the girl in the straw hat. He used his handkerchief to wrap up her knee after she hurt it in a fall, and she's kept it ever since! They're still reminiscing when they're interrupted by a rumbling roar, and then see several Sihorn, with riders on their backs, pounding toward them! Apparently the track they're walking along is really a Sihorn racecourse--and the race is in full swing! Officer Junsa takes them into Sumiru Village and shows them where the Sihorn live. She says that tomorrow the race will be open to first-timers, and Satoshi is excited to enter! He quickly realizes he doesn't know anything about Sihorn racing--he even has trouble getting up onto Sihorn's back. But Serena's mom used to be a Sihorn racer, so Serena is pretty good at this stuff, and she shows him the ropes. She even shares her mom's advice, "Be one with Sihorn," which seems to help Satoshi get the hang of things! The next day, it's time for the race! Of course, the Team Rocket trio have been lurking about, and they interrupt the race in an attempt to catch the racing Sihorn--and Pikachu, too! Satoshi and the other racers are tied up and unable to help, but Citron, Serena, and Eureka are soon on the scene! Citron and Eureka free the captured Sihorn while Serena and Fokko hold Team Rocket at bay, and the Sihorn close in to send the villains blasting off again. Before leaving the village, Serena calls her mom to introduce her new friends and share her travel plans! Satoshi, Citron, Eureka, and Serena excitedly make preparations to head out for Shoyo City. But first, Serena has a gift for Satoshi! She baked some cookies to recognize his hard work, and to thank him for helping her all those years ago. There are enough cookies for everyone, so they won't be traveling on an empty stomach as the journey continues!

Pokémon Trimmer and Trimmien!
2014-03-08
Our heroes arrive in a town where they spot a beautifully styled Pokémon called a Furfrou. Suddenly, another Furfrou comes bounding out from a bush and knocks Bonnie down, but this Furfrou is very unstylish! We then meet its Trainer--a young girl named Jessica, who informs them that her Furfrou won't let her style it or even brush it, because it hasn't yet recognized Jessica as its partner. Wanting to make up for accidently knocking Bonnie down, Jessica invites our heroes to the shop of celebrated Pokémon groomer Sherman, where she works. Everyone is amazed at the shop and its intricate goings on! On her lunch break, Jessica gives our heroes a tour of the town, where they run into a supposedly famous hair stylist-turned- Pokémon groomer named "Jessally"... who is actually Jessie from Team Rocket in disguise, along with her "assistants"... a disguised James and Meowth. They present a fashion show of their own and offer to "style" Pikachu. Ash declines, at which point Serena offers to have Fennekin styled. Jessally agrees, but James informs our heroes they must leave Fennekin there alone, and to return in an hour. They reluctantly agree...only to run into Officer Jenny, who's searching for a group of Pokémon groomer imposters--Team Rocket! Back at the phony salon, Team Rocket and Fennekin are long gone... but Jessica's Furfrou picks up their scent! A fierce battle ensues, and Ash and Pikachu amaze everyone with their awesome teamwork. It is a difficult battle indeed, but good wins out, and Team Rocket is sent blasting off again. Bonnie notices that Furfrou has begun to pay attention to Jessica, which leads our heroes to suspect Furfrou finally recognizes her as its partner. And when Jessica asks if she can finally groom Furfrou, Furfrou agrees! Back they go the salon, where Jessica styles Furfrou into a beautiful example of Pokémon grooming. And so, our heroes bid them a fond farewell, as they resume their journey to Lumiose City!

The impressive Prism Tower catches Serena's eye, and Ash tells her about his attempt to challenge the Lumiose Gym inside it--an attempt that was shut down by a robot who threw him out because he didn't have four Kalos Gym badges. Clemont and Bonnie try to get them moving when someone pulls up beside them--it's Meyer, Clemont and Bonnie's father! Meyer reveals that Clemont is the Lumiose City Gym Leader! Clemont explains that the Gym was taking up too much of his time, so he built a robot named Clembot to take over some of his duties. But a glitch in the programming means Clembot sticks to the "rules" no matter what--and since Clemont doesn't have four Gym badges either, Clembot won't let him inside his own Gym! Along with Ash, Clemont sneaks into the Gym so he can repair the malfunctioning robot. They find Clembot on the battlefield, where it accepts Clemont's override code--and his battle challenge! Clemont sends out Bunnelby against his own Heliolisk, one of the Pokémon he left at the Gym to fight at Clembot's side. With some strategy, Clemont manages to defeat his own creation! The robot finally recognizes its inventor, and Clemont starts a full reprogramming. This time, he remembers to install a few important qualities he initially left out: compassion, kindness, and flexibility. Then, along with Ash and Serena, Clemont and Bonnie visit their dad to explain the situation at the Gym--and to tell him they want to leave the new, improved Clembot in charge so they can keep traveling with their new friends! Meyer happily declares his support for their journey. That night, Clemont asks Ash if he's sorry he couldn't have a Lumiose Gym battle. Ash says he plans to return when he's a bit further along in his Kalos journey...on one condition. When he does come back to challenge the Lumiose Gym, he wants to battle Clemont, not Clembot!

As long as our heroes are in Lumiose City, Serena suggests they visit Professor Sycamore before they continue their journey--and she's made a batch of delicious macarons for the occasion! At the professor's lab, they settle in with a nice cup of tea, only to discover the macarons are missing! They find the basket of treats in a corner, guarded by a very hungry Chespin who isn't interested in sharing. Meanwhile, Team Rocket has been researching Professor Sycamore's studies on Mega Evolution, and the villains decide stealing his data would be a big boost to their schemes. They break into the lab grounds, grab the professor, and throw him in the back of their truck, but Bonnie and Serena manage to sneak aboard before they drive away. The girls get locked inside by accident, but Serena manages to leave a trail of broken macarons--which Chespin quickly sniffs out, leading Clemont and Ash to the villains' hideout! In the meantime, James has plugged Professor Sycamore's data into a mechanical Mega-Mega Meowth, which attacks our heroes! Chespin lets Clemont know it wants to battle, but neither Chespin nor Pikachu can make a dent in the mighty machine. But then, the Mega Blaziken that rescued Ash when he fell from Prism Tower reappears, along with its Trainer, a mysterious man in a Blaziken mask. Mega Blaziken's incredibly powerful Flamethrower leaves Mega-Mega Meowth charbroiled, along with the actual Meowth who's been controlling it, and Team Rocket is sent blasting off again. As our heroes head back to the lab with the professor, Mega Blaziken's Trainer is watching over them--now without his mask. It's Meyer, Clemont and Bonnie's dad! At the lab, Ash, Serena, Clemont, and Bonnie are saying their farewells. Clemont thanks Chespin for its help against Team Rocket and says they'll meet again soon, but it seems clear that Chespin wants to come along! And so, with Clemont's friend Chespin now part of the group, the journey to Cyllage City continues!

Pursuit in the Bamboo Forest! Yancham and Goronda!!
2014-03-09
During a lunch break on their way to Cyllage City, our heroes are being spied on. Yes, Team Rocket is lurking, but so are two adorable Pancham! Serena offers them some Pokémon food, but they're not satisfied until they gobble up all of it--and our heroes' lunch, as well! There's no time to react, because Team Rocket takes advantage of the confusion to net Pikachu, Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie and speed away! Jessie, James, and Meowth have grand visions of how the Boss will reward them for this impressive haul, but they quickly get into a fight about who should get the credit for the catch. It turns into a real fight, between James's Inkay and Jessie's Wobbuffet, which causes an explosion that frees our heroes' captured Pokémon! Meowth is sent flying off alone and ends up hanging from a tree, where he spots the other Pokémon and convinces them to cut him down. Pikachu is reluctant, and Froakie is suspicious, but Chespin and Fennekin welcome him with open paws. Jessie and James go looking for their partner in crime and run into the two Pancham from earlier--and an angry Pangoro protecting them! After it runs the villains off, Jessie trips over a Pumpkaboo sleeping in the ground--and promptly catches it, much to James's surprise. Meanwhile, Pangoro and Pancham have run into our heroes' Pokémon, and a frightened Chespin unleashes a Pin Missile that accidentally destroys the bamboo sprig Pangoro carries in its mouth. Without its beloved bamboo, the Pokémon is left weak. Ash, Serena, Clemont, and Bonnie finally find the Pokémon and immediately set out to find a new bamboo sprig so Pangoro can get its strength back. They're successful, but when they get back, Meowth has shown his true colors, and Team Rocket has Pangoro and Pancham all tied up! But as they try to drive our heroes off, Ash makes a risky dash for Pangoro and manages to get the bamboo sprig into its mouth. Fully restored, Pangoro bursts out of its bindings and sends the villains blasting off again!

Capture the Pokémon Buyer! The Kofuurai Impersonation Plan!!
2014-04-05
On the road to Cyllage City, our heroes are forced to leap out of the way when a truck barrels down on them, with Officer Jenny in close pursuit! When the dust clears, Ash and friends spot a cage that fell off the truck, and a weary Scatterbug that crawls out and collapses. They scoop it up and take it to the nearest Pokémon Center, where Officer Jenny finds them--and tries to arrest Ash for being an accomplice in stealing the Scatterbug! The misunderstanding is quickly sorted out. Officer Jenny explains that she's on the trail of Dolan, a Pokémon smuggler who specializes in Scatterbug, Spewpa, and Vivillon. Because Vivillon can have wings of many different colors and patterns based on their native habitat, they're highly prized by collectors. When the Scatterbug they rescued evolves into Spewpa, Clemont notices something in its fur--a transmitter, attached by the smuggler so he can keep track of his "merchandise." They develop a plan: one of them will wear the transmitter, plus a Spewpa disguise (provided by costume designer Serena) and act as bait, then Clemont will use one of his inventions to track the transmitter to Dolan's secret hideout. Clemont's Chespin is the closest to Spewpa's size, so it gets the job! Ash, Serena, Clemont, and Bonnie put the disguised Chespin in the cage and leave it for Dolan to find, while they and Officer Jenny hide nearby. Dolan arrives to claim his lost treasure, and unwittingly leads our heroes to the cave where he's keeping all the Pokémon he's nabbed. He catches our heroes poking around and attacks with his Diggersby! Ash's Froakie battles back--and then Spewpa leaps into the fray, evolves into a beautiful purple Vivillon, and uses its calming powers to take the fight right out of Dolan! Officer Jenny arrests him, and our heroes free all the captured Spewpa...who evolve all at once, into Vivillon of many different patterns! They take to the sky in an amazing rainbow of colors, and our heroes' journey continues!

They accuse each other of being responsible for the "haunting," but when they meet up with Bonnie and Espurr, they figure out what's going on, and Meowth offers to translate for Espurr. It seems the woman in the painting used to take care of the wild Espurr, feeding and playing with it when it came to her mansion. She even let it wear the pendant, a gift from her husband.

On their way to Shoyo City, our heroes camp out for the night. Citron makes dinner, and for dessert, Serena brings out a basket full of her homemade macarons. But the basket is empty, and Citron discovers that his Harimaron has eaten them all...again. Citron tries to get Harimaron to battle Satoshi's Keromatsu for some exercise. But Harimaron is completely stuffed and moving slowly, and Keromatsu beats it easily. Eureka challenges them next, and Dedenne wins in a flash. Citron is determined to get his Pokémon ready for battle again. The next morning, Harimaron wakes to discover the source of the delicious smell: oven fresh macarons. Granny, the old woman who lives in the house is delighted to have such an enthusiastic audience, and gives Harimaron all the macarons it can eat. When her husband Grampa returns home, Granny asks Harimaron to take her side in a battle against him and his Mafoxy. Going up against a powerful Fire type scares Harimaron, especially since its full belly is still making it hard to battle. Sure enough, Mafoxy's first attack is a direct hit, and it sends up a cloud of smoke our heroes see from a distance. Citron realizes Harimaron is in trouble and runs to the house, throwing himself into the line of fire. Grampa quickly calls off the battle, but Harimaron wants to keep going, so Citron asks if he can step in. Citron figures out that since Harimaron is rounder than usual right now, it's particularly good at rolling. He tells Harimaron to keep rolling and dodging Mafoxy's attacks. Grampa is about to unleash a powerful move--but in the midst of giving this order, he hurts his back. It's a draw. The couple explains that the battle was to settle an argument they had the day before. But Grampa already bought Granny a cake to apologize, and they share it with our heroes as thanks for their help.

He also directs them to the aquarium's curator, Rodman, who's fishing on the beach with his rather prickly Clauncher. Rodman tells our heroes a local legend about a golden Magikarp who once rescued a diver in danger, and says he's trying to catch it for the aquarium so everyone can see it! Ash, Serena, and Clemont want to help him catch it, and he happily hands out fishing rods. Of course, Team Rocket has also been listening in on the conversation, and the villains want to catch the golden Magikarp for themselves... No one is having any luck, so Clemont produces an invention to lure Magikarp in toward the shore! But it's not quite as fine-tuned as Clemont hoped, instead attracting several cranky Sharpedo. Not to be defeated, Clemont reveals yet another invention, determined that this one will work right! And sure enough, all the fishing rods get a bite at the same time, and with a mighty effort, our heroes and Rodman reel in their catch...and it is a golden Magikarp!

When a tiny and sad-looking Pokémon lands in Bonnie's hair, our heroes are determined to find out what's wrong! Its Trainer, Grey, explains that the little Flabébé has a special bond with his wife, Florence. She recently became ill, and when Flabébé tried to visit her in the hospital, a passing car blew its flower away. Without its flower, Flabébé is growing weak, but it won't accept just any flower as a replacement--it needs a Fairy Flower, and those are hard to find! Our heroes set out in search of the flower, "assisted" by Team Rocket in tour-guide disguises. Bonnie spots a Fairy Flower growing high on a cliffside, and since Flabébé is too weak to fly, she climbs up after it as Ash, Serena, and Clemont watch anxiously from below. While they're distracted, Team Rocket nabs Pikachu! As a battle to reclaim it begins, Flabébé bonds with its new flower, and once its energy is restored, it floats over the villains and sprinkles them with its relaxing pollen. They happily release Pikachu and wander off in a joyful daze, and our heroes take Flabébé to meet Grey at the hospital. Florence perks up immediately upon seeing her dear friend, and though Bonnie has to say goodbye, her kindness and courage have saved the day!

But Serena's new friend Eevee is skittish and shy in the presence of so many others, and she suggests a Tag Battle so Eevee can gain some experience and confidence. It's Ash and Tierno versus Serena and Shauna! When Tierno and his Blastoise go into their usual battle dance, Eevee starts toe-tapping right along with them, and soon it's leaping and whirling faster than Blastoise can follow! It gets one good hit in with Swift as Serena watches, starry-eyed...and then she asks everyone to put the battle on hold so her team can rehearse a new performance idea! Ash and Tierno happily continue the battle on their own as Serena and Shauna go off to practice--because the next morning, it's time to register for the Showcase!
