141. Gettin' The Bugs Out
Ash finally makes it to the Azalea Town Gym and it looks
more like a forest than a gym. They soon realize the gym is Misty’s
nightmare. It’s full of bugs! and
Misty screams at a Caterpie They see a guy in a tree and he asks Ash to help him
down because he said he was surprised by the scream and he knocked down the
ladder so he was stuck. He introduces himself as Bugsy the bug lover.
Ash learns he is the gym leader and wants to fight him and Bugsy accepts.
They are each allowed 3 Pokemon each. Bugsy uses a Spinarak and Ash uses
Cyndaquil. (duh) Cyndaquil can’t warm up it’s burners so it can only dodge a
series of poison stings and string shots. Ash decides to retreat it before
it gets knocked out. Ash uses Chikorita who can’t catch Spinarak who is
swinging from tree to tree using string shot but Chikorita miraculously wins.
Bugsy uses Metapod who only hardens while Chikorita can’t hit it.
Metapod goes so fast it looks like it disappeared and it jumps on Chikorita to
win. So Ash decides to use Pikachu.
Who’s that Pokemon?
Team Rocket is outside and has a new plan.
They’ll dig underground and grab Pikachu.
The match begins. This time Pikachu is ready for a
tackle and Metapod misses and takes damage. Before Metapod can get up
Pikachu jumps on it and zaps it to win.
Bugsy uses Scyther who uses double team and Pikachu zaps
them all and also James who poked his head out from in the hole they dug.
But Pikachu isn’t fast enough to avoid slashes and is down. All that’s
left is Cyndaquil who has amazing dodging skills until it gets it’s burners
going. WHen it finally does Scyther repels it’s fire with a swords
dance. Ash is in a pickle but then gets a great idea. He tells
Cyndaquil to do a Flame thrower while spinning above Scyther. Scyther gets
trapped in the middle of a column of fire and is beaten. Team Rocket tries
to get in yet again disguised as plants and even bring Victreebell but the bugs
recognize them and use a string shot. Bugsy gives Ash a hive badge and
they are on their way. Then they remember the Pokeballs from Kurt, but
Maisy doesn’t forget and runs up to give them to the gang. Brock chooses
a heavy ball and Misty and Ash take Lure balls and then they’re really
on their way. Meanwhile Team Rocket climbs through their hole again and
are surrounded by Weedles, Kakunas, Caterpies, and Metapods and they freak out.
The episode begins with ash, brock, misty and pikachu
walking along a path until they eventually arrive at the second pokemon gym-home
to pokemon gym leader bugsy. The
gang enter the gym and all of a sudden a caterpie comes out of the trees,
creeping misty out. Then more
caterpies emerge along with more metapods, totally creeping misty out.
They run on to meet bugsy stuck up in a tree.
He asks ash to pick up his ladder and place it up against the tree so he
can get down. Ash then challenges bugsy to a match. Bugsy accepts and they're off.
Bugsy chooses spinarak and ash chooses cyndaquil.
However cyndaquils burners aren't working.
Cyndaquil is returned after getting stuck to the ground by spinaraks
string shot. Ash then sends out
chikorita who after a long battle finally knocks out spinarak.
Bugsy then sends out metapod. Metapod
uses harden which makes chikoritas razor leaf and vine whip totally uneffective.
Metapod finishes chikorita off with a tackle attack.
Ash returns chikorita and sends out pikachu.
Pikachu has a battle with metapod and manages to beat him.
Bugsy recalls metapod and sends out
makes short work of pikachu so ash calls him back. He then sends out cyndaquil whos burners are working fine
now. Scyther is looking like the
victor in this battle. Scyther uses
a move which is supposed to block all fire pokemon attacks. Ash commands cyndaquil to jump up in the air and spin around.
Ash tells cyndaquil to use flamethrower which he does.
He then uses tackle to finish off scyther.
Bugsy is surprised but presents ash with his second johto league badge. The gang head on towards there next adventure when they
realise they have forgoten to get there apricorn

a while spinarak caught cyndaquill in some string shot and after cyndaquill
took a poison sting attack Ash re-called it and sent out chikorita,
chikorita then used vine whip but spinarak dodged and dodged with string shot

Who’s that pokemon
I give this episode five out of five.
attempt to earn his second Johto League badge. But when they arrive at the
gym, they fear they have the wrong place as it appears to be an indoor
forest, not a Pokemon gym. Mist soon becomes to dislike the place as it is
filled with bug Pokemon, but the gang meet Bugsy, who explains to them that
this is the gym and that he is the gym leader, a bug trainer. Ash challenges
him and so the battle commences.
First up Ash chooses Cyndaquil, certain that its fire power will beat Bugsy's
Spinarak. But Cyndaquil is tired and needs to warm up before its flame can
ignite. While successfully dodging Spinarak's string shot attacks, Ash thinks
Cyndaquil can warm up in time, when Bugsy sprays the entire arena with string
shot. Rather than lose, Ash withdraws Cyndaquil and brings out Chikorita.
In a close battle, Chikorita manages to defeat Spinarak by using sweet scent.
Bugsy calls out Metapod.
As Chikorita attacks Metapod, it uses harden, rendering Chikorita's attacks
useless. But then in a surprising move, Metapod tackles Chikorita, knocking
it out. Surprised at the speed of Bugsy's Metapod, Ash calls out Pikachu to
battle. As the battle rages, Metapod stirs up the dust to confuse Pikachu,
however still being able to hear it, Pikachu dodges Metapod and manages to
hit it with a thunderbolt.
With Bugsy down to his last Pokemon, he calls out his best fighter, Scyther.
Trying his best, Pikachu fights Scyther but is defeated by his speed and
strength. Knowing he has only one option left, Ash calls out Cyndaquil.
Fortunately Cyndaquil dodges Scyther's attacks and eventually relights its
flame. But as it uses flamethrower, Scyther's sword dance blows the flames
back like a fan. Determined not to be beaten, Ash tells Cyndaquil to use
flamethrower again. But as Scyther uses swords dance, Cyndaquil jumps into
the air so that it is right above Scyther. Using flamethrower from above,
Cyndaquil knocks out Scyther, winning the match and earning Ash a Hive Badge.
As our heros prepare to leave Azalea Town, they realise that they have
forgotten something. At that momet, Kurt's granddaughter, Maisy, comes
running up to them to give them their Apricorn PokeBalls. Brock takes the
HeavyBall, while Ash and Misty choose the LureBalls. Maisy tells them that
Kurt is still looking into the GS ball and tells them that they can pick it
up on the way back to Pallet Town.
(Team Rocket make an attempt to capture Pikachu, but it is such a small part
of the story that I didn;t bother to include it.)
Who's that Pokemon? - Elekid
thinks the outcome of the battle will be like. He says
he’ll win, but Misty reminds Ash that he doesn’t have Charizard anymore, and
that Charizard won most of Ash’s gym battles. Ash knows that Cyndaquil
shouldn’t have any trouble.
Summary written by Petey
Ash, Misty, and Brock finally make it to the Azalea Town
Pokemon gym for Ash to earn his Hive Badge. They finally walk in, and the
see a huge greenhouse forest. All of a sudden, they see a kid sitting up
in a tree, and he asks for help getting down, and he explains that when they
startled him, he knocked over his ladder. He finally gets down, and
introduces himself. His name is Bugsy, and he’s the gym leader.
Ash walks up to him, and challenges him to a battle.
They step into the arena, and they start the battle.
The announcer says it will be a three-round battle. First, Bugsy sends out
Spinarak, and Ash sends out Cyndaquil. The battle starts out Spinarak
using String Attack, and Cyndaquil dodges it, over and over again, until it got
tired, and Spinarak strung him. Ash retreated, instead of letting
Cyndaquil faint. Then, surprisingly, he sent out Chikorita!
He commanded it to use Vine Whip, and then Spinarak
fainted! Bugsy returned Spinarak, and sent out Metapod.
Ash commanded Chikorita to use Vine Whip again, Metapod
used Harden, and the vines didn’t make a scratch! Chikorita keeps using
Vine Whip, and Metapod using Harden, until Ash finally orders Chikorita to use
Razor Leaf, and Metapod Hardened again. Bugsy commanded it to use.....
TACKLE!!? Metapod jumped up in the
air, and landed on Chikorita, fainting it!!!!! Ash called Chikorita back
into it’s Pokeball, and sent out Pikachu. Ash commanded Pikachu to use
Quick Attack, and Metapod blocked it! Bugsy commanded it to use Tackle.
Ash didn’t want Pikachu to faint like Chikorita, so he commanded it to
use Agility, and Metapod kept hopping around, with Pikachu dodging.
Finally, Ash commanded Pikachu to use Thunderbolt, and it worked! Metapod
was gone! Bugsy returned Metapod, and said to Ash that barely anybody had
ever made to the last round before. Then, he sent out Scyther! Then,
Bugsy commanded Scyther to use Fury Cutter, an attack that got stronger every
time you used it.Pikachu finally couldn’t take it anymore, after five Fury
Cutter attacks, and was knocked unconscious. Ash had only one Pokemon left, so he sent out Cyndaquil again.
Ash commanded it to use Flamethrower, but Cyndaquil couldn’t get it’s
So Scyther used Swords Dance, which hurt Cyndaquil pretty
badly. Ash commanded it to use Flamethrower again, and Cyndaquil did get
heated up, and he used the attack, but it didn’t work on Scyther! Bugsy
explained that he and his Scyther had been training so long, Scyther won over
fire! So Ash came up with a
strategy. He commanded Cyndaquil to jump over Scyther’s head, and use
Flamethrower over it so it can’t get out. Cyndaquil did it....... and it
worked! “Scyther is unable to battle! The challenger from Pallet
Town wins the match!” The announcer declared. Hah! About
time Ash won another badge, huh? Bugsy was impressed, and he gave Ash his
Hive Badge. So Ash, Misty, and Brock waved farewell, and continued their
journey on to Goldenrod City. Suddenly, Macy, (Kurt’s granddaughter from
the episode before, “Going Apricorn”) comes up to them and gives them there
Apricorn Pokeballs, courtesy of Kurt. Brock got a Heavy Ball, and Ash, and
Misty both got Lure Balls.
