Episode 123 Chikorita Rescue
Here's another summary from yours truly.
Ash and them are walking on a path when they come upon a Chikorita bathing in
the sun. Ash yells out to see if anyone owns it, no one replies, and Ash
fights the Chikorita. He sends out Bulbasaur first, he puts up a good fight,
but a stray Vine Whip from Chikorita knocks him out. Ash then sends out
Charizard. Chikorita runs at Charizard, Charizard sticks out his foot and
blocks Chikorita. Chikorita attacks Charizard with Razor Leaf, Charizard
counters with Flamethrower, burning the leaves to a crisp. Charizard then
flies at Chikorita to Tackle it, but Chikorita wraps his vines around
Charizard and throws him off balance, and into a rock wall, Chikorita still
hanging on. Chikorita hits the wall too and is knocked unconscious. Ash
picks up Chikorita and begins to rush him to a Pokemon Centre. T-Rocket was
spying on the battle from the bushes, and thinks that a spunky Chikorita like
the one Ash is holding would be better suited for T-Rocket...
Who's that Pokemon? It's Quagsire!!!
Ash and them arrive at the Pokemon Centre, and Chikorita begins to stir, and
bites Ash. They go inside and Chikorita is brought into the Emergency Room.
After awhile, Nurse Joy comes out and tells them that the Chikorita will be
alright. Ash and the group go to check on Chikorita, he looks alright, and
suddenly, two doctors and a small Pokemon rush in, take the stretcher
Chikorita is on. Then Ash recognizes the doctors as T-Rocket, and then they
speed away in the Ambulance. Ash then starts running after the van, gets on a
ledge above the van, and jumps onto the roof of it. The scene then switches
back to Ash, Brock and Nurse Joy, and they are worried about Chikorita. Misty
says that Ash'll be alright as long as he has his Pokemon, but then stops
short when she realizes that Ash left his Pokemon at the Centre!! Uh oh.....
Anyways, back to Ash, him and Pikachu are standing outside a little cottage in
the snow, and Ash goes to send out Charizard to melt all the snow with
Flamethrower, but then he realizes that he left his Pokemon back at the Centre!
The scene switches to T-Rocket, and they are trying to convince Chikorita to
join their team. Then, Ash busts in, mocks T-Rocket's motto, and pelts them
all with snowballs. During the distractions, Pikachu grabs Chikorita, and they
run outside. Ash is still stalling T-Rocket, when he hears Pikachu yelling.
Him and Chikorita are trapped!! He runs to help, but is then caught himself
too. They break free of the rope binding them all together, and start rolling
down a hill, in a humungous snowball!! Eventually, they come to a stop in a
tree, the large rope holding the 3 together snaps. Now concealed by snow, they
have cover as T-Rocket drives by on a jet powered snowmobile. Ash and the
other 2 are walking around, trying to get out of the snow, when Chikorita
wanders off. Ash bids him farewell silently, and it starts to lightly snow.
Ash and Pikachu find cover and build a fire. Ash starts thinking about
Chikorita, how spunky he is, how much stamina he has in battle, his
never-ending determination, and he then goes off to find Chikorita, telling
Pikachu to stay behind in case Misty and Brock come looking for them. Ash runs
around for a while looking for Chikorita and calling out his name, he finds a
cute couple of Nidoran (awww) and then eventually spots Chikorita, freezing to
death. He then asks Chikorita if he wants to come take shelter with him and
Pikachu, and he agrees, and it's evident that he's warming up to Ash. Ash
walks back to the shelter he found, Pikachu happy to see him, and both him and
Chikorita warm up in Ash's jacket. The morning comes, and they break free of
the snow, to find T-Rocket waiting for them, Meowth strapped to a large
machine. He pushes a button, and snowballs are flung at Ash. Chikorita attacks
with Razorleaf, making the machine malfunction, and it starts pelting Jessie
and James with snowballs, then Pikachu steps in, Thunderbolts the machine, and
sends T-Rocket flying away again! Back at the Pokemon Centre, Ash is bidding
farewell to Chikorita, and walks off, but then Chikorita comes running up, and
starts snuggling Ash. Nurse Jenny then says that Chikorita must want to go
with Ash, and Ash asks Chikorita if he wants to join the team, he answers yes,
and Ash does his victory pose, happy to be the prowd owner of a Chikorita!!!
And that's it for today!!
Ash, Misty, and Brock, still on their way to Violet City, have found a
Brock gets excited and wants to go up on the mountain to see the girls. Misty

anyone. The Chikorita gets up and ready to battle and Ash sends out
Bulbasaur, Bulbasaur does a Vine-Whip and the Chikorita uses a Razor Leaf
