AIRED:
After being blasted into the sea, Ash and co. are still drifting, with the boat that was to take them to Mossdeep long gone and no land in sight. They are overjoyed when a sub rises nearby, but after sneaking aboard their joy turns to fear when they realize that the sub belongs to Team Magma. They try to hide, but they are spotted by Team Magma's leader, Maxie. Under arrest, Maxie tells the group about Team Magma's ambition to increase the amount of land on Earth by awakening the legendary Pokemon Groudon, and in order to help with this Team Magma have already captured Groudon's nemesis Kyogre as well as the Blue Orb, which they plan to swap with Team Aqua for the Red Orb. Meanwhile, Shelly of Team Aqua is also aboard the base and she frees Kyogre from its prison. But when the huge Pokémon gets free it begins to tear up the place, causing the Blue Orb to fuse with Pikachu. While Ash and Pikachu are separated from Brock, May and Max, Lance arrives to help with the situation but things get worse when Archie and Team Aqua turn up.moreless

    Someone has to be wierd not to like this episode. I was waiting for the Groudon and Kyogre battle thing to start and it finally did!They land on Team Magma`s submarine which carries them inside the Hideout andAsh and friends are noticed! they get into a argument with Pokemon and something happens to the Blue orb which controls Groudon!Pikachu is then fused with the Blue orb and brings out Powerful thunder attackes you`ve never seen before. I found out Lance was undercover in Team Magma`s ship. Later on in the episode team Aqua`s leader gets there hands on Kyogre. Kyogre is being controlled and is destroying Team magma`s ship. This episode was one of the best and I didn`t want to sell out the hold episode so I cut out parts. Anyway this episode is the best I`ve ever seen in Pokemon Advanced Challenges so far!moreless

    This Was an excellent episode! It should have been a movie though. I didn\'t like it when they tried to make it seem like Groudon was a good guy. He is supposed to be EVIL! The stupidest moment of the the show was when Ash said \"It looks like they\'re doing a dance.\"I really wanted to see Lance with some Hoenn pokemon though.
  • One of the best episodes Ever in the whole Anime world!

  • Excellant

    Almost perfect. My only gripe is that it was too rushed and too short. It should have been a 4 or five parter, the battle between croudon/kyogre should have been longer, and Raquaza shouldve made an appearance. Basicly this shouldve been like a movie. But it was still on of the best episodes.

    This episode starts off where "Training Wrecks" left off. Ash, May, Max, & Brock flying off of the ship and landing in the ocean. All of a sudden a submarine that belongs to Team Magma comes up beneath them. The sub goes into Team Magma's base where the gang is captured and brought into Maxie's (Team Magma Leader) office. Meanwhile Shelly from Team Aqua breaks into the base and frees Kyogre from its restraints. Maxie explains Team Magma's "purpose" but Ash doesn't by it. Team Magma say that they have the Blue Orb that controls Groudon but Team Aqua has Groudon. Team Aqua has the Red orb but Team Magma has the Kyogre. Kyogre then breaks out of the base and a disguised Lance confronts Shelly. Kyogre hits the base and the Blue Orb goes flying and Pikachu catches it but the orb goes into its skin giving it amazing electric attacks. Archie (Team Aqua Leader) then uses Kyogre to attack Team Magma's base. Max, May, & Brock jump off the ship but Team Magma captures Ash. Kyogre completely destroys Team Magma's base, which sucks the gang into the ocean, but they are saved by Lance's Red Gyrados. Meanwhile Team Rocket ends up on Monsu Island and they spy on Team Aqua & Team Magma's meeting. Team Rocket decides to steal Kyogre & Groudon and give them to Giovanni. On Team Magma's ship Pikachu is going out of control and Lance comes to save Ash. Team Rocket sneaks onto Team Aqua's ship and accidentally awakens Kyogre. Team Aqua then confronts Team Rocket. Team Rocket beat back Team Aqua and then capture Kyogre in a net. Kyogre easily breaks through it sending Team Rocket flying. Kyogre jumps into the ocean furious and swims off just as Groudon begins to awaken.
