Note: The new Pokemon episodes in America are out of
order and won’t be in the same order as the Japanese episodes. now to the
Okay, this is another of the long chain of
"Tracy" episodes where nothing at all is accomplished, except another
of Team Rocket's losses. Others under this category are Way Off Day Off,
the Joy of Pokemon, or Mandrin Island Mismatch. Been there, done that.
To the episode, Ash, Misty, and Tracy
land on yet another island, and, of course, someting is wrong. This time,
a building is on fire. Squirtle and Staryu help to put it out, but are to
weak. A band of Wartortle puts it out, because they are owned by a fire
Squirtle, like Pikachu in Electric Shock
Showdown, is mad becuz his evolved form is more capable than he is, so Ash has
Squirtle trained with the firefighter Wartortle. Needless to
say, TR has their eyes on the tough Wartortles, so they (what else?) lure them
into a big hole, and also capture Pikachu and Squirtle.
PAUSE. In Ash's unseccessful battle to get back Pikachu, they are smogged,
but Scyther blows it back with Sword Dance. Sword Dance does not blow back
things, it increases attack. In Fourth Round Rumble, it makes more than
one Scy. In Showdown at Dark City, it increases attack. While I'm
mentioning things that have nothing to do with the plot, what's with Meowth's
Chior, instead of Pikachu's Jukebox? In general, I have nothing against
Team Rocket, and I'm glad they are appearing more, but a Meowth with a guitar
singing with J,J and their Pokemon, is really stretching the limit. Back
to the story.
The search goes on for a while, Team
Rocket blasts off, of course, and Squirtle and Wartortle save a little kid in a
burning building. Everybody is happy and they leave, and the singing
Meowth appears about now.
Pokemon Water Wars
Ash and the gang are walking along when they see a fire
in a warehouse. Squirtle and Staryu try to put it out, but they weren’t strong
enough! A flaming door almost landed on Misty, Ash, Squirtle, and Staryu, but a
group of Wartortle firefighters moved them out of the way. The Wartortle quickly
turn to the fire. Their Water Gun attacks - though puny - put out the flames.
Squirtle gets jealous and reaches in its shell and puts on its Squirtle Squad
glasses. Ash tells Tracey about Squirtles gang and how they became firefighters
after they trusted Ash. The owner of the Wartortle says that there are 3 groups
of Pokemon: Team Squirtle, Team Wartortle, and Team Blastoise. Team Rocket sets
up a trap and gets Ash’s Squirtle and Pikachu and Team Wortortle. A little
while later, there’s a report on a huge fire. They say that Team Blastoise is
being blocked by a truck and Team Squirtle are trying hard but can’t put out
the fire! Misty goes to the fire with Scyther and Marill to help out. Venonat
finds Team Rocket and rescues Team Wartortle and Ash’s Pokemon. The Pokemon
all start to put out the fire, but a little boy is stuck inside. Squirtle and 1
of the Wartortle save the boy and the fire is put out. After being thanked Ash
and his friends sail on. There was
another Meowth’s Party song at the end. It was in Japanese this time.
I’d give this episode 3/5 stars. It was good, but there
wasn’t too much done.
