This is volume 2 in the Pokemon Cartoon video series. This
video contains Episodes 4, 5, and 6. This is where Ash first meets Brock, Metapod
evolves in to Butterfree. In Episode 6, Mount Moon unlocks the mystery of the Clefairy
Pokemon. Clefairy are favorites among girls watching the Pokemon series.
In "Bulbasaur and the Hidden Village," the heroes stumble onto a
Pokémon health spa where injured Pokémon creatures can take in a little R&R. The
courageous Bulbasaur that defends the spa does not take kindly to Ash's desire to be his
trainer (and keep him in his Pokéball storage container). "Charmander--The Stray
Pokémon" finds the cute title character abandoned on a rock awaiting a new owner.
The poor critter will die if his tail light ever goes out. What will he do in the upcoming
thunderstorm? The title characters in "Here Comes the Squirtle Squad" are
water-spouting beasts with Jack Nicholson sunglasses and a one-word vocabulary
("squirtle, squirtle" is heard in a dozen different variations). Of course, Team
Rocket is there to foil our heroes and steal Ash's valuable Pickachu.
"Mystery at the Lighthouse" recalls Ray Bradbury's short story
"The Fog Horn." The single, forlorn specimen of a huge seagoing Pokémon comes
to a lonely lighthouse seeking companionship, but the villains of Team Rocket drive off
the unique creature before "Pokémon scholar" Bill can study it. Moving on to
Vermilion City, Ash wins a Thunder Badge in a match against the local champion, whose
no-holds-barred tactics have sent more than a dozen Pokémons to the hospital. Ash and
Pikachu prove that speed, agility, and friendship can overcome brute strength. At their
evil boss's bidding, Team Rocket lures a crowd of Trainers onto the St. Anne ocean
liner as part of a plot to seize their Pokémons. Ash leads a counterattack that defeats
the bad guys, but the episode ends on an unusually ominous note, with Ash, Misty, Brock,
and Pikachu trapped in the sinking ship. Even more ominous for parents is Bill's statement
that there may be no limit to the number of Pokémons beyond the known 151.
