9/11/99-Episode # 50:
The Purrfect Hero
(Notice: Purrfect is supposed to have two (or
three?) R's. I'm not sure if Purrfect had a dash, three R's, or what).
Who's That Pokemon: Wartortle
and Brock are walking down a path, when they see a flag pole with Magikarp,
Goldeen, and Gyarados banners. Everyone is happy because those banners mean
that it is Kid's Day. They remember it being a special day, where everyone
gets the day off and has fun. Ash and Brock think it should be a boy's day,
but Misty disagrees and knocks Ash and Brock over the head (Maybe even Pikachu
too). Everyone goes over to the preschool and is speaking to the group
(Brock is sucking up to the pretty teacher, as usual) when she gets a phone
call. It is the three Pokemon trainers who were supposed to show , and let the
kids play with their Pokemon. They couldn't make it. The teacher is sad and
turns off the phone. the group finds out what was wrong and Brock volunteers
them to help. Ash and Misty are happy to help, so they go to see the kids.
Right away the young children rush over and pinch, touch, and pet Pikachu.
Pikachu is getting a little disturbed and Ash is uncomfortable too. Ash
quickly picks up Pikachu and gets shocked. After that, everyone brings out
their Pokemon and let the kids play with them. Brock says that it is good for
the Pokemon to play with kids because it will help them relax. He also says it
is good for a breeder to know that. The group then notices a boy standing off
to the side. They meet him, his name is Timmy. He doesn't want to meet any
other Pokemon except Meowth because a wild Meowth once saved him from a
Beedrill. A van then comes down the road, and the people inside (who
remarkably resemble Team Rocket, hint hint...) announce over a loudspeaker
that their Pokemon magic show today is free. All the kids run over, as does
Ash, Brock, Misty and the teacher. Then, it shows the one magician talking to
a Meowth inside the van. The two female "magicians" begin by asking
if there is a Pikachu in the audience because they must have a Pikachu for
this trick. Ash looks at Pikachu, and makes sure its ok, then Pikachu runs up
to the stage and gets in the box like he was supposed to. The magicians then
close the box, some smoke appears as they were chanting, and out pops a
Meowth. Timmy is very happy at seeing a Meowth.The magicians then quickly
announce the shoe is over. Everyone gets mad, and the magicians remove their
clothing to reveal Team Rocket uniforms. Now before anyone gets confused, let
me explain something. James was dressed as a girl, and was talking like a girl
too. Team Rocket tries to recite their introduction, but the kids run up to
them and start getting excited. I'm not sure in the order this happened, but
Team Rocket pushes them away. James then notices that the kids are playing
with his Weezing as if he is a beachball. James gets sad, but the teacher
yells at the kids to stop and they leave. James orders Weezing to Smokescreen.
No one can see anything, but Timmy knocks Meowth off the box to help him out,
but Pikachu falls out, and Timmy falls in. Team Rocket grabs the box, and
leave with Meowth right behind. They jump into their van and speed off. Ash is
sad at first because he thinks Team Rocket kidnapped Pikachu, but Pikachu
would come running from the smoke. Ash is happy, but the teacher says that
Timmy is missing. Team Rocket is now hiding, they get the box and open it.
they were expecting a Pikachu, but they got a crying boy. Timmy keeps crying,
Jesse tries to calm him, but then Timmy sees Meowth and gets happy. Team
Rocket notices Timmy's admiration for Meowth, and take Meowth behind the van.
They tell him to pretend that he is the Meowth that saved Timmy. Team Rocket
pretends they will hurt Timmy, but Meowth pretends to save him. Timmy brings
Meowth back to the school. Everyone in the class believes Timmy's story (They
didn't before). Everyone is petting the Meowth and they say he is the best and
Meowth accidentally talks. Misty notices and says something about it. Meowth
gets nervous and runs away. He meets Jesse and James behind a rock. He
explains that he slipped up, so Team Rocket gets up on a rock as everyone
comes. It is a dead end in a rocky environment as Team Rocket traps everyone.
They challenge Ash, Misty, and Brock to a battle. Ash and Brock fight.
Pidgeotto and Onix Fight Arbok and Weezing. Weezing Smokescreens but Pigeotto
blows it away. Arbok goes underground and breaks through a wall heading
straight for Pidgeotto. But Onix rams Arbok just before he gets Pidgeotto.
Arbok hits a wall, causing a huge rock to head towards everyone. Suddenly
another Meowth jumps off Team Rocket's Meowth and kicks open the rock saving
everyone. Team Rocket's rock starts rolling with them on it, the rock was
rolling with Meowth right in front of it, So Team Rocket left. Timmy and the
wild Meowth reunite, and before the group leaves, Timmy says he will keep
Meowth and someday make it to the Pokemon League. So everyone waves farewell,
but before the show ends, it shows Team Rocket walking away, with Meowth
explaining that why he would have gotten tired of being a hero.
A quick note: I try to remember the episodes the best I can, so if I
get anything wrong, then you know how.
I do write down the episode names and the Who's That Pokemon.
This was a pretty good episode. It was funny seeing Weezing
getting knocked around like a beachball. Overall, this was a nice episode,
with a pretty good storyline.
Four stars out of five.
Until Next Time,
Master Trainer David
