Episode Summary

The Road to the Pocket Monster League!
After receiving his second badge, Satoshi sets off triumphantly for Kuchiba City. Along the way, they hear of a trainer named A.J., a fierce Pocket Monsters trainer who has never lost a match. Full of self-confidence from his own record of ten victories in a row, Satoshi heads directly for the gym to find his new opponent. When they arrive, a huge bulletin in front of the gym announcing, This Gym Not Authorized by the Pocket Monster League along with a neon sign declaring 98 Consecutive Victories appeal to Satoshi’s over-confidence. A.J. is on the brink of achieving his goal of 100 straight victories, after which he will embark on a journey to gather badges. Will victory fall on the side of Satoshi and his 10 straight victories or with A.J. and his string of 98? In the process, will Satoshi learn some important lessons about the bonds between Pocket Monsters and trainers?moreless
