Episode #149???


Ash, Misty and Brock are sitting on the bank of a river, fishing. Ash says
this is a boring way to catch Pokemon, and Brock thinks perhaps they're using
the wrong kind of bait. Misty and Ash trade barbs about not being quiet
enough, then Misty gets a bite! When she reels it in, her "catch" turns out
to be a teakettle and Brock jokes that she should try for a coffeemaker. She
gets mad and tells them that she'll do whatever it takes to get a water
Pokemon and produces a fishing lure that looks like a miniature of herself
wearing a cape. She casts it into the water and goes into a long speech about
how beautiful water Pokemon are and that as a girl she made herself a promise
to learn all she could about them.

Suddenly, what should pop out of the water
but a Totodile! It stands on a rock and does a little dance. Misty goes
starry-eyed but Ash vows that he'll catch it. She beats him to the punch by
throwing out her lure, which the Totodile snaps up, but spits out in the next
moment. Ash gloats and has Pikachu Thundershock the Totodile before throwing
a PokeBall. Totodile has been captured - or so it seems.As Ash and Misty
argue about his underhanded tactics, the Totodile comes out of the PokeBall
and continues to dance around as before. Ash won't have any more of this and
orders Pikachu to shock it again, but Misty shoves him out of her way and
throws her own PokeBall. By now the Totodile has had enough and sprays them
all with a Water Gun and jumps back into the river. Both Ash and Misty run
off to search for it and Brock follows: looks like this one is going to need
a referee. 

Totodile climbs back onto the shore; it's hungry. It hears voices
and goes to investigate. Team Rocket is nearby having a snack. Meowth is
worried that the boss will boot them off the team if they keep messing up. J&
J try to cheer him up by dancing, but it doesn't help. Then Jessie offers him
a snack, and the Totodile jumps out of the bushes and chomps it, hand and
all! Jessie freaks out (and has to put her escaped Wobbuffet back into its
PokeBall again). Totodile eats the rest of their snacks in one gulp, and when
they all try to grab it, it sends them blasting off with its Water Gun.
Pikachu spots it and runs to tell Ash. 

Both he and Misty are determined to
catch it, but Misty plans to increase her chances by using the Lure Ball that
Kurt made. Ash gets his own Lure Ball out and they argue over who's the
better trainer. (Totodile is still dancing merrily during this whole thing.)
They throw their Lure Balls at the same time and the Totodile is finally
captured, but the trouble is they don't know whose Lure Ball actually caught
it! Both of them grab the one containing the Totodile and begin to fight over
it, and Brock finally intervenes, saying that the only way to settle this is
with a Pokemon battle. Brock decides on a best-of-three match. Ash knows that
Misty uses only water Pokemon, so he chooses Pikachu. However, Misty sends
out her "secret weapon": Togepi! Who's that Pokemon: Pichu Pikachu becomes
very nervous, not wanting to attack his friend. Misty tells Togepi to use its
Charm attack, and Pikachu retreats and hides behind a rock. Round One goes to

Next Ash chooses Chikorita, a grass type which is stronger than a
water type. Misty chooses Staryu and tells him not to make any more
predictions about who's going to win because her Staryu has more experience
than Chikorita. Staryu dodges Chikorita's Vine Whip and proceeds to give
Chikorita a hard time. Chikorita manages to Tackle but Staryu retaliates with
Water Gun. Chikorita digs in its heels; although the Staryu dodges its Vine
Whip again, it leaps high and wraps the vines around the Staryu and slams it
into the ground. Round Two to Ash. Both adversaries are confident that
they'll win, because they both have reputations on the line. Third round is
Bulbasaur versus Poliwag. Team Rocket is floating down the river on a log,
hoping they won't meet the Totodile again. 

Meowth has a plan to catch the Totodile and bring it to the boss. They see Misty and Ash on the shore having
their battle, and decide to wait until their Pokemon are tired, then grab
them. On shore, Bulbasaur and Poliwag seem to be evenly matched. Poliwag
blows a Razor Leaf attack away with its Water Gun but Bulbasaur jumps up and
takes Poliwag by surprise and knocks it down. Brock is about to declare Ash
the winner when Poliwag suddenly evolves into Poliwhirl! Ash still believes
he can win and sends Bulbasaur in for a Tackle but Poliwhirl's Body Slam puts
it at a disadvantage. A quick Razor Leaf gets Poliwhirl off but Bulbasaur is
tired. Ash orders it to use Solar Beam but Misty knows this takes a while and
tells Poliwhirl to use Bubble to keep the pressure on. Finally though,
Bulbasaur powers up its Solar Beam and takes out the Poliwhirl. 

Misty consoles her Poliwhirl while Brock awards the Lure Ball containing the
Totodile to Ash. At this point they are interruped by Jessie and James in
disguise, but Wobbuffet comes out again and blows their cover. TR threatens
to steal Pikachu but Ash releases Totodile which immediately grabs onto
Jessie's hair! Furious, she tells Arbok to attack it, but it bites Arbok's
tail and whips it around, sending it crashing into Meowth. Then James sends
Weezing but Totodile easily takes care of it with a Scratch attack, then uses
its Water Gun to send TR blasting off a second time. As Totodile dances
around with Pikachu, Brock comments that it looks as happy and energetic as
Ash is. Misty gracefully concedes defeat and fawns over her new Poliwhirl.

When we first see our heroes, they're on a lake, fishing. Ash comments that this is a boring way to catch water Pokemon. Misty doesn't agree & pulls out the lure that looks like her!( I've seen this lure before in "Bye Bye, Psyduck") Suddenly, she gets a bite! Meanwhile, a Totodile is watching nearby...
 Misty reels her catch in, but it's nothing more than a tea kettle! Brock jokes that she should try for a coffemaker instead. Just then, the Totodile pops out of the water! It does a happy dance, then Ash has Pikachu shock it. Ash throws the Pokeball & catches it. NOT!!! It gets out of the ball when Ash & Misty are fighting! Misty tries her lure, but Totodile spits it out due to its taste. it then runs off with Ash, Misty,& Pikachu after it. Brock,holding Togepi, said "They're gonna need a referee."
  After Totodile's meal w/ Team Rocket, Ash & Misty find it, and both use their Lureballs on it, but they don't know who made the catch. There was only one way to decide it: A Pokemon battle!  
    Ash starts off by using Pikachu, but Misty has a surprise for battling Pika: Her Togepi! She gives Pikachu a hug, then uses her best Charm attack against him. Pika is so scared of hurting his friend he loses on purpose!(Go Togepi!) Round 2 is Chikorita vs.Staryu. Chikorita may be at a lower level than Staryu, but it packs more of a punch.(It seems I'm describing Vegeta of DBZ right now!) Chikorita eventually wins, the scores tied.Now Misty & Ash will have to fight hard this round because they both have reputations on the line. It's Bulbasaur vs. Poliwag in the final match. While all this is happening, Team Rocket is watching them, hoping to steal the Pokemon at the end. OK, back to the match. Bulbasaur uses Razor Leaf to seemingly defeat Poliwag, but then Poliwag evolves into Poliwhirl! He uses Body Slam, but Bulbasaur gets him off & prepares to use Solarbeam. Since this takes a turn, Misty tells Poliwhirl to use Bubble. Bulbasaur is now ready and lets the Solarbeam loose,
 Before Ash does his victory pose, "auxillury ladies" show up, but Wobbuffet pops out & blows Team Rocket's cover. Ash uses his new Totodile to blast TR off again, then does his victory pose while Misty isn't being a bad sport at all. In fact, she's fawning over her evolved Poliwhirl!
