Pokemon Episode summary : Pokemon Scent-Sation


By TokoyamiTheDark

Ash, Misty and Brock finally arrives at Celadon City, for Ash’s fourth badge, the Rainbow badge. Then they enter a perfume shop, where Brock and Misty both tries different perfumes. Ash counters that what they are doing is a complete waste of time and money, which shocks the kimono girls in the shop. Then, the shop’s owner, a Geisha girl with make-up, kicks Ash out of the shop for what he said about the perfume. Misty and Brock follows him, as Ash decides to go to the Gym to get his fourth Badge, the Rainbow badge. As he enters the Gym, he is stamped with a big, red ‘X’ stamp by mad girls who witnessed what happened at the perfume shop, for as the perfume is made in the Gym itself!

Usually, only girls may enter, but on some conditions, boys can also enter. Brock and Misty are welcomed inside the Gym. Meanwhile, Team Rocket decides to enter the Gym to steal all of the perfume, but gets kicked out of the gym at the next moment. Ash, peeking at he gym’s windows, sees the Gym Leader, but is astonished as he recognizes her : she’s the Geisha girl that owns the perfume shop! Sitting with a Gloom telling stories to people including Brock and Misty, Ash then crosses paths with Team Rocket, who gets an excellent idea to help Ash sneaking into the Gym ; disguising him as a girl!

As for Jessie and James, they disguise themselves as typical adults and put their plans on work ; they will pretend to be the parents of Ash (nicknamed Ashley) wanting her to be registered in the Gym. So, they enter the Gym, and everything is OK. Misty, Brock, and Pikachu still recognizes Ash despite his disguise, and looks in a funny way at him.In front of Erika, Ash reveals his disguise and asks her for a Pokemon Battle. 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. However, it releases an horrid stench, and, after many attempts at grabbing it, Gloom let itself being grabbed by Ash, who exit the Gym safe and sound ; Ash came out only with a few burn scars.

By TokoyamiTheDark

The mini-movie begins with our hero’s Pokemon finding a strange building. Inside, Team Rocket leaves Meowth in a luxury room and tells him to take care of the room while they’re away until the Boss will come. So, three Whismur holding maracas are under Meowth’s supervision, which then make a stick appear in his paws. The stick has the ability to control Pokemon to make them dance to the music (exept the one holding it) so Whismur, Wobbuffet, Cacnea and Seviper all begin to dance with Meowth holding the stick. But then, Seviper chases the Whismur, which get locked in a jail by Meowth so he can eat all what he can without being disturbed.

A Home For Dwebble! Summary And Review


Hi guys! I will be offering a detailed summary and a review afterwards of the 11th episode of Pokemon Black and White. This episode starts out with Cilan preparing delicious sandwiches for Iris and Ash. Pikachu and Axew also enjoy their food without it getting stolen by Darumaka this time. Our heroes take a peek over some rocks to find a curious little Dwebble. They are delighted to see it in the process of choosing and making its home from a nearby rock. It then moves into its new shell, but is quickly kicked out when 3 bully Dwebble steal it from him. After beating up the owner, the bullies dig underground. Cilan cannot believe the injustice and sends out his Pansage to chase after the thieves. They are unsuccessful and the gang tries to calm down the disgruntled crab, but he lashes out in fear and ends up hurting Pansage.

A cut scene reveals Team Rocket meeting up with Pierce. They are given orders to infiltrate the Antimony Research Lab and to download the meteorite data. The sun is setting and the team is setting up camp for the night. Cilan uses a potion on Pansage, but he develops a fever. Iris comes to the rescue by whipping up a healing salve from nearby herbs. The team proceeds to sleep and we see Dwebble show its concern for the green monkey. As our heroes are sleeping, Team Rocket infiltrates the heavily secured research lab and accomplishes their mission. They report back to Pierce and are told to await further orders.

To everybody’s relief, Pansage makes a full recovery and the group heads out to help Dwebble get its home back. The bullies are spotted, but run away, only to be chased by Axew. Now that the wrong-doers are cornered, Dwebble vehemently insists that it wants to fight and get its house back by itself. The three are too much for it and again dig away. Knowing that the brave Pokemon only needs a fair fight, Cilan uses his food as bait to separate the trouble making trio. By using the environment and its deadly X-Scissor move, Dwebble takes back its house in a truly heroic manner. It becomes fond of Pansage and Cilan and decides to join him.

By TokoyamiTheDark

As the lights turns off, the Master is coming in a bright blue light and reveals itself to be… Mewtwo! Fergus gets irate and states that a Pokemon can’t be a Pokemon trainer. Mewtwo then uses its psychic powers to toss Fergus in the fountain. Fergus orders Gyarados to attack and use Hyper Beam, but Mewtwo deflects the attack back at Gyarados, who’s sent flying straight in the pool! Mewtwo then tells its assistant that it no longer needs her. The lady falls under Brock’s arms and turns out to be Nurse Joy!!! Mewtwo tells Brock how he abducted her a month ago, and for which purposes.

During this time, Team Rocket gets in a room that looks like a laboratory. There are three Pokemon in tubes that seems either dead or asleep. Jessie accidently sits on a button activating a video showing the cloning processus about Mewtwo. While they’re watching, pincers grabs Meowth and puts him on a rolling machine! Jessie and James manages to get Meowth out, but not before the machine takes a few hair out of Meowth’s tail.

By TokoyamiTheDark

Meanwhile, a Fearow with a camera films everything out, and a lady asks her master if she should send an invitation to Ash and the gang. Her master agrees, so she sends out her Dragonite who flies over the picnic table and hands out the invitation letter to Ash. He replies ‘YES’ then Dragonite picks up back the letter, then flies away, only to be stopped by Team Rocket with a frying pan. It drops the invitation letter and Team Rocket seems to want to go, too…

Ash and the gang arrives at Marina, only to find out that the ferry has been canceled due to a tremendous storm!

Team Rocket Has Changed

By Carl00456

Remember the old days of Pokemon? Team Rocket would usually come up with an amazing plan to capture pikachu, only to be blasting off into space five seconds later. Team Rocket have had their highs and lows over the pokemon series and it wasn’t until Pokemon Best Wishes aired that they truly became awesome.

The old team rocket would attempt to capture Ash’s Pikachu by any means necessary. Their plans would be simple yet entertaining and for the most part would involve their Meowth balloon or some kind of crazy machine shaped to look like a Pokemon. Team rocket were quickly rid of as soon as Pikachu used his thunderbolt and they would whimper about how they failed before disappearing. Team Rocket was only a side attraction but they began to become more and more involved in the Pokemon episodes.

I truly liked Team Rockets motto. It was so catchy and it fit their quirky style at the time. Team Rocket would always introduce themselves this way and it gave them an annoying yet humorous feel. They were causing chaos at a breakneck pace! The motto has changed and I find that I still like this one the most. The new one in Best Wishes has a cool feel, with mentions of lightning and Meowth suddenly being wise, but you just can’t compare it to the original.

Even Team Rocket Has Fans!

By Pheonixxfoxx

Prepare for trouble and make it double…These words have been uttered time and time again by my favorite human characters of the Pokemon anime series. We mustn’t forget Meowth, Team Rocket just would not be the same without   the wisecracking feline.

That’s right!! I have collected memorabilia of Jessie, James, and Meowth since 1998 I believe?! Though, human characters are not merchandised the way the actual Pokemon are, the trio has gotten a decent amount of merchandise and I have the collection to prove it!

My collection of Team Rocket really began when I got my hands on a set of Jessie and James figures at a local mall; little did I know that they were actually bootlegs. Since then, I have gotten the beautiful TOMY figures the bootlegs were based on. Despite the age of the figures, they are even mint in package, and I decided to leave them that way for the time being.

When I learned of the Team Rocket TCG, back in 1999-2000 due to be released here in the US, I knew I had to have the complete set. I did accomplish my TCG task; in fact my English set is 100% 1st edition. I am still working on completing my Japanese set, not many cards are needed now. My Team Rocket set is even housed in an official TCG Team Rocket binder and I even have a matching deck box.

I must admit that Jessie, James, and Meowth are not the only Team Rocket related things I collect. Giovanni, their boss and Persian also occupy my collection. I know I mentioned my Persian prototype plush in a past article. It is a shame it was never put into circulation, for I know I would have ended up with an army of classy cat plush. I hate to say it, but in a way Meowth did get his wish, for he is the top cat as far as merchandise goes! At one point, my Team Rocket collection was becoming a Meowth collection.
