Episode Summary

Ash and friends stop to have lunch in a city while Ash continues to train Turtwig to master the move Energy Ball. They are suddenly interrupted by a group of Gligar and a Gliscor who swoop down on them and steal all of their food. While trying to decide what to do, Paul appears and scares the hoard off, revealing that he wants to capture Gliscor. Ash, Dawn, and Brock then run into Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny who reveal that Gliscor was trapped in the city due to recently strong winds, and its attempts at using sonar to escape attracted a group of Gligar. Ash, Dawn, and Brock agree to help them get the group of pokémon back to the forest. Meanwhile, Team Rocket is planning a way to capture the pokémon, while Paul plots on how to capture Gliscor, and Ash has a few encounters with a awkward Gligar.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Ash and the gang have to help a pack of Gligar and a Gliscor to go back to their home in the forest........

    Well, this episode to me was a well written one. In this episode, Ash's Turtwig had ALMOST mastered Energy Ball, but now the problem is that it just has to more accuarate, while Brock, Dawn and their Pokemon were having lunch. Suddenly, a pack of Gligor and their leader Gliscor(evolved form of Gligor)flew in and took off all their food! Soon, PAUL showed up and scared the Pokemon off with his new Pokemon. Soon, officer Jenny and Nurse Joy appeared and it was revealed that the Pokemon came because they were blowed away from their own home due to a storm one time and they could not return home thanks to the city's skyskapper currents. So Ash and everyone tries everything to get the Pokemon back home. In the end, the Pokemon get to return home but Ash gets to capture a funny Gligar while PAUL HAD to catch a Gliscor........... Finally, do I recommend this episode?? Yes, as this episode is really funny to watch with the Gligar and Gliscor, but Paul had to be so cruel when catching the Gliscor???? He is soooooooooo crazy AND cruel!!!moreless
  • A very funny and quirky Gligar joins our ranks!

    This was a very good episode, and a Particularly important one for Ash, as a member of his team masters a great new pmove, and another member is added to his team!

    The Gligar and Gliscor were quite awesome to see, and I have used a Gliscor as part of my Platinum team! I really like this Pokemon, but it hass a huge wekaness to Ice types!

    The funniest and weirdest part of this episode was the effect that Electric-type attacks were having on Gligar and Gliscor, which are both Ground types. That was weird, and I didn't like that component of this episode, but as long as it does not happen again, I'll overlook it this time.

    Keep up the great work, guys! The Gligar that aAsh coaught was very cute and quirky! I think it will be a great addition to his team, and I can't wait to see the next episode! I definitely highly recommend this one!moreless
