Episode No. 17.5: “Holiday at Acapulco”
PLOT Finding themselves on the beach at a beautiful resort town,
Ash, Pikachu, Misty and Brock decide to rent a yacht and take a little
R&R. Unfortunately for them, Team Rocket is lurking in a handmade,
pedal-powered submarine right offshore. When the two craft
accidentally sideswipe one another, both sides realize they’re going
to have to come up with some cash to repair their trashed boats.
To payoff the damages, the elderly owner of the
yacht puts Ash and crew
to work at his waterfront restaurant, while Team Rocket winds up at
the fashionable Café Crone, run by a scary old woman. It turns out
that Café Crone’s been luring customers away from the old man, so
Ash decides to put his Pokémon to work at jazzing up the place. With
Pikachu and Squirtle passing out discount coupons, Pidgeot fanning the
barbecue, Charmander firing up the stove and Bulbasaur carrying drinks
to the customers, the place can’t help but be a hit. Unfortunately,
Ash is back to square one when Meowth starts disrupting business and
the old lady demands repayment of an old debt.
Just when things are looking their worst,
Professor Oak and Ash’s mother show up with great news: There’s
going to be a “Suntanned Beauties and Pokémon Fashion Contest,”
with top prize being more than enough dough to repair the yacht and
payoff the of Café Crone. First up on stage are Misty and …Squirtle(?),
but the real fun starts when James
enters the show, dressed in a bikini and a sporting a huge pair of
inflatable breasts. James plan doesn’t go so well, so Team Rocket
launches a missile attack on the contest instead. Thinking fast, Ash
throws down Pidgeot and Charmander, who use their powers to confuse
the missile -
Which ends up tagging not only Jesse and James,
but Café Crone as well.
IT'S BANNED “these are too much for a 10-year old like you, “
purrs James suggestively as he fondles his bouncing chest in front of
a little girl. “Nuff said.

detailed and very cool!
here is the SCRIPT me (CelestialCelebiMale/Anonymousan) and Crystal

Holiday At Acapulco as Acapulco’s Holiday but either way is fine). A

that part) and I haven’t gotten the last five minutes because the
