Emolga The Irresistible! Summary And Review

By JC

Hey guys! Today I will be summarizing and reviewing the 24th episode of the Pokemon Black and White series. In the previous episode, Ash earned his third gym badge by defeating Burgh in a 3-on-3 gym battle. The show beings with a trio of Patrat bouncing on a tree limb to yield some tasty apples. An Emolga peeks from a tree and flops down on the ground next to them. It proceeds to use Attract on all 3 of them, and as a result, takes off with all their hard-earned apples.

Ash, Iris, and Cilan are seen eating lunch with a guest, Bianca. Iris presents some apples for dessert afterwards, to which Bianca responds negatively. Oshawott pops out spontaneously and grabs an apple. Axew is handed one as well, but mishandles it and chases after it down a hill. An Emolga takes his apple and daydreams about a scenario to take all of Iris’s apples. It thinks that if it is nice to Axew, Iris will offer her apples in return. This is exactly what happens, but Bianca comes running down and smothers it. She shows her intentions to catch it and sends out her Mincinno to battle it. Mincinno begins with Double-slap and follows that up with Hyper Voice. It uses Tickle next, but that provokes Emolga to use Discharge and electrocutes everyone. Both battles uses Attract, but only the wild Pokemon’s attack goes through. Oshawott pushes Mincinno out of the way and begins to fall in love. It turns out our new friend is a girl. It flies away as Bianca and Axew chase after it.

Axew wants to give an apple to Emolga so they go looking for it. Bianca has her own intentions and heads off. We see it find some apples and its thoughts about Iris’s apples as well as a negative view of Bianca and being caught. Iris finds her and reveals that her Pokemon has a small crush on the electric-mouse. Just when they are about to cement their friendship, Bianca interrupts. She flies away, but Iris and Axew follow it, but they end up in a forest full of Swoobat. Emolga can’t stand it and she electrocutes all of them. Ash and the others play catch up.

Iris, Emolga, and Axew find a small pond and proceed to have a bit of fun. The electric mouse decides to use Hidden Power into the pool, but gets a little carried away and provokes a school of Swoobat nearby. She electrocutes them again and they make a run for it. The others are in the forest and look upon a rustling bush. Bianca decides to launch a surprise attack with Pignite, but mistakenly attacks a Scolipede. Iris and the two take cover in a small cove. Ash and the others are able to get away from Scolipede and they come to rustling tree. Bianca prematurely attacks again, attacking a Galvantula this time. Angered, it shocks all of them. Back in the cove, a huge group of Swoobat attacks them. They are surrounded and forced to fight. Iris sends out her Excadrill in hopes that he will defend them. It stays clammed up. Emolga uses her Attract, but has no effect on the male Swoobat. Excadrill is inadvertently affected and Iris recalls him, shaking her head.

A chilly wind is blowing, and, in an unexpected moment, the ghost of the woman then appears in front of Brock, saying she was waiting for him! Brock then gets happy to see her again, and chooses to follow her. Meanwhile, Team Rocket are sleeping in their sleeping bags.

However, the ghost of the maiden send a hypnotic wind, putting back Meowth and Jessie to sleep, but approaches James, and tells him that she waited so long for him, too.

When the sun rises, Brock is nowhere to be found. Ash then crosses paths with Jessie, who starts doing their dumb motto alone, since James is gone, too! Suddently, Brock and James appear, floating and babbling like morons. Pikachu thundershocks the two men, but in vain. They then think they maybe did ‘who knows what’ with the ghost of the Maiden, but the old hag tells the gang that they got possessed by the ghost of the girl. Each year, the spirit of the girl tries to seduce men, possess them and leave them possessed and acting like idiots. She then suggests the gang to buy anti-evil spirits stickers, and sticks them wherever they don’t want evil spirits to be.

So, when night falls for the second time. Ash and Misty sticks the stickers all over the shrine as well as on Brock and James! Then, the old lady warns them ; the soul of the maiden is back! The stickers get blown away by the strong winds, and James cries, wondering why the stickers are not working, and Jessie tells him they got them…for free. As the maiden beckons Brock and James to her, Jessie shoots at her with a bazooka, but it has no effect on her. The spirit then gets angry and summons ghastly skulls, scaring the whole gang. Ash uses his PokeDex and tries pointing it towards the skulls, but in vain, as the PokeDex does not recognizes the skulls as being Pokemon, but when Ash points it at the maiden, the PokeDex alerts that she is actually a Gastly!

Pokemon Episode summary : The Ghost Of Maiden Peak Part 1

By TokoyamiTheDark

The episode begins during nighttime, showing a statue of a woman. Then, a ghost with a striking resemblance to the woman emerges, moaning that she’s waiting for someone. However, the calm voice becomes creepier, and the ghost woman becomes a Gastly! Ash, Misty and Brock arrives at their destination, where once every year they celebrate the end of summer in a festival. Brock is a little sad, because it is also the end of the swimsuit season, meaning he’ll have to wait until next year.

Meanwhile, Team Rocket are attached to the boat in a barrel, looking for trouble, as usual. When Ash and co. gets out of the boat, Brock sees a beautiful, purple haired girl. As he gazes upon her sad eyes, Brock get stomped flat by a crowd in a hurry. When he looks back, the girl is gone! Team Rocket is looking for cash on the loose, and finally finds a shiny penny, but Officier Jenny comes in and tells all money found is to be donated, even if it is a penny. James then sees the same girl than Brock, but Jessie smacks him for saying the girl was beautiful. He looks back, only to find that she’s gone.

Back to Ash, an old woman appears, warning Ash and co. of a very beautiful girl that will curses them. Misty brags that the old hag must be talking about her, but the granny says she’s talking about a beauty, not a rotten brat like Misty. Ash laughs, but Misty smacks him hard and drag him out. Team Rocket encounter the same old woman, same warnings. The scene skips to everyone sitting in front of a shrine, with an old man telling he’s going to reveal something that can be revealed only once every year. He takes the blanket, and the ‘thing’ was a painting ; a painting of the woman Brock and James saw before !!! As they approaches the painting, the old man tells them that the woman supposedly lived over 2 000 years ago, and her legend has been passed on from past to present ; long, long ago there was a fierce war in Kanto, and all men from the country were gone to fight. A woman had a Viking husband, which, however, was gone to the war.

So, they enter the Gym, and everything is OK.

She gladly accepts, and, as a Grass-type Gym Leader, she mainly uses Pokemon like Tangela, Weepinbell and, of course, her Gloom.

With Erika being distracted by the match, Team Rocket manages to find all of the perfumes stored in a safe. However, perfumes are very sensitive to combustibles, and the whole gym soon gets blazed in an intense fire! Team Rocket has fled with the ‘secret’ perfume, while Brock’s and Misty’s Pokemon tries to extinguish the fire. Erika suddenly remembers that she forgot her Gloom inside the Gym! Ash runs inside, as hasty as always, and, after a while, finds Gloom.

Rematch At The Nacrene Gym! Summary And Review

By JC

Hello guys! I will be giving a summary and review of the 16th Pokemon Black and White episode. The episode picks up right where the previous one ended, at the Battle Club. Don George begins his training lesson with Ash’s Tepig and tells him that the trainer must also train beside his Pokemon. Tepig and Ash start their training on a treadmill, trying to increase their stamina and speed. Don George turns up the intensity by having them dodge “shadow balls” at the same time. At first they struggle, but soon enough, they master the exercise and are noticeably stronger and tired. While Tepig rests, Oshawott is sent out to train.

Don George shows them a water-type training environment that looks like an enlarged swimming pool. There, Ash and his Oshawott are to swim against the current to build up their muscles and stamina. Meanwhile, Cilan and Iris feed a fully rested Tepig, but can’t seem to find Axew. Axew is mischievous and messes with the computer that controls the current strength. Ash and Oshawott are caught off-guard by the increase in current, but Osahwott adapts and performs Aqua Jet. Don George tells him to aim for the target, but the otter falls just short.

After they complete their training, Ash goes back to the Nacrene Gym to have a rematch with Lenora. Like last time, she shows her Pokemon, Watchog and Herdier (she evolved her Lillipup), before the match. The match begins with Tepig facing off against Herdier. Tepig opens with Ember and Herdier defends with Protect. It counters with Shadow Ball which Tepig dodges with relative ease thanks to his newfound speed. Herdier uses Roar and forces Oshawott to switch out. Lenora switches her Pokemon with Watchog to reenact the situation from their last match.

Watchog uses Mean Look right away. This time, Ash and Oshawott are ready for Lenora’s strategy. Right away Oshawott uses Razor Shell and catches Watchog off guard. Ash is excited to use Aqua Jet, but it is unsuccessful twice. He tries to use Water Gun, but misses as well. Lenora makes a quirky remark before issuing a Confuse Ray which connects. Oshawott takes a punishing Thunderbolt, but with his last remaining strength, makes a direct hit with Aqua Jet resulting in a double knockout.

Ash and co. arrives at their destination, but the park isn’t open yet. So they decide to take a nap. Pikachu wakes up and hear trucks from a distance. It then wakes everyone up, as the workers are installing the attractions in the amusement park. A yellow pickup then parks on the side. A purple-haired man then come out with a briefcase. He then takes a magician stick and opens the briefcase. Pink balloons then magically come out of his briefcase, as he hit them with his stick. A woman then comes out with two fans and hit the balloons with them. Once all balloons are forming a circle, they pop up, and a huge tent is slowly created by the magician. Everyone stares at the magician, while Brock has his eyes on the woman.

The day after, Team Rocket, disguised as clowns, are handing off foldouts to everyone to announce ‘The Great Butler’s Magic Show’. Ash pick up one of the foldouts, and recalls that the foldout features the magician they saw last night, creating the tent. So The scene then shows up to Butler, the purple-haired magician, putting his white hat on an empty table. He then slaps the hat with his stick, and when he takes off the hat, a Kirlia appears under the hat! Butler then calls on his Mightyena for another trick. Butler seals back Kirlia, puts a red cloth over it, then burns it off.

Out of the smoke comes Diane, Butler’s assistant, carrying a crystal. Brock applauses, and say that bein a magician will be his career for making women appear. Shine rays come out of the crystal, and Max suddently hears a voice. The voice tells him that ‘it’ is sealed inside the crystal. Max rushes to the scene, followed by Ash. Butler then claims their arrival was in an imprecable timing for his next trick, the ‘Burning Box’. Clowns then carry the box and put Ash and Max in it. Diane encourages them, and tells that Ash,Max and Pikachu arefellow magicians, and will escape the box before it explodes.

However, Team Rocket came on to steal Pikachu, and to make a trick ‘making all Pokemon dissapear’. Butler does not get discouraged, as he has one more trick to do. Dusclops shoots a blue blob of fire that frees Pikachu and the other Pokemon. Dusclops’ last move is to throw dark flames at the Rockets’ montgolfier. Everyone applause loudly. After the show, Max asks Butler and Diane about the crystal, and they respond by saying a Pokemon named Jirachi awakens once every 1000 years, and is sleeping inside the crystal, which acts like a cocoon.

To wake up Jirachi, the gem need 2 things ; The Millenium Comet and… a best friend chosen by destiny. Max happens to be the chosen one, so Diane gives him the crystal. At twilight, May buys a Wish Maker, a sacred item that can grant one wish when its panels are closed while facing the Millenium Comet. The gang then se pretty fireworks being unleashed, and Max tells Jirachi to look at the Pokemon-shaped fireworks. The Millenium Comet is soon gonna be visible to everyone’s eyes…

Triple Leaders, Team Threats! Summary and Review

By JC

Hi guys! I’m going to summarize and review the 5th episode of Pokemon Black and White. You won’t want to miss this one! Ash and Iris finally arrive in Striaton City. Ash is eager to challenge the Striaton gym leader, but doesn’t know where to go. Our heroes run into Cilan, a Pokemon Connoisseur. Cilan agrees to take Ash and Iris to the Striaton City Gym. When they get inside, the place looks like a restaurant. The gym is actually behind the restaurant and the gym leaders are actually the three waiters, Cilan, Cress, and Chili.

Ash is given a choice to battle a brother but boldly asks to battle all three. They agree and the first battle is between Ash’s Tepig and Chili’s Pansear. Next up is Ash’s Pikachu against Cress’s Panpour. After two exciting Pokemon battles, Ash must face Cilan for the Striaton City Gym Badge. It is up to Oshawott to beat Cilan and his Pansage. The battle is fierce and the episode ends with Ash’s Pokemon not looking too well, but without a conclusion. Meanwhile, Team Rocket reports to Giovanni and receives orders for the latest scheme.

Finally, we are treated to a gym battle. I’m glad Ash wasn’t hungry. Looks like I wasn’t the only one who was growing impatient for a Pokemon gym battle. Kudos to the writer for making Ash challenge all 3 brothers. Speaking of Cilan, Cress, and Chili, I wonder what hair color their parents have. Oh, and what’s up with the cheerleaders/fangirls hanging out in the restaurant? It brings back memories of the cheerleaders that were following Gary around. Is it just me, or is Iris looking awfully adoringly at something (watch her expression right before the battle is about to begin)?

In The Shadow Of Zekrom! Summary And Review

By JC

Hey guys. I decided to check out the Pokemon anime by watching the first episode of the new Black and White season. I watched most of the original Kanto series and some of the Johto long time ago, but haven’t caught an episode until now. This episode introduces Ash Ketchum as he sets out with his mother and Professor Oak to the Unova region. As soon as they arrive, Ash’s number one buddy Pikachu is ambushed by Team Rocket. Shortly after, a mysterious dark cloud forms and reveals Zekrom. Zekrom unleashes lightning and Pikachu seems to behave like an electrical conductor.

The thunderstorm clears and everything and everyone seems fine. Professor Juniper, a Pokemon professor of Unova, appears and gives Ash and his party a ride to her research lab. On the way, we are treated to scenes of Unova Pokemon. At the lab, Professor Juniper runs some tests on Pikachu. While Pikachu is busy with some tests, Ash explores the rest of the lab. He runs into Trip, a brand new trainer, and watches him choose a starter Pokemon. Ash and Trip strike up a conversation and one thing leads to another and they have a Pokemon battle. The episode ends with Zekrom returning over the laboratory, leaving an ominous tone.

When the narrator introduced Ash as a 10-year old boy, I was intrigued and thought the new Pokemon Black and White series would be a reboot of the anime. However, we do see Pikachu and very early into the episode we realize it’s a continuation indeed. Am I the only one that thinks that it’s strange that Ash is 10 years old? I believe Black and White is the 14th season. My, oh my, young Ash has lived a very exciting life! I really would have enjoyed seeing an older Ash. It would be cool to see him pursue romantic interests and become more mature as he continues his quest to become the Pokemon Master.
