  • Team Rocket takes captive of a Pokemon Showboat.

    This episode was very cool and exciting because TR causes trouble on a showboat, stealing away all the actress' Pokemon, including Kay's Raichu. With no clue, they get defeated as the actress sneak away and command their Pokemon to attack them. Before they blasted off, Raichu send them a Mega Punch and went off.
  • Ash and the gang have to help a person to get back her relationship with Raichu!!

    Know any Pokemon that can talk like a normal human?? Meowth from Team Rocket can, but there are Pokemon in this episode who sound like a normal human! In this episode, Ash and the gang were exploring the Orange Islands and they soon saw a cute show where Pokemon could talk to each other like normal humans, however turns out that people were doing something like lip singing so that it sounds like the Pokemon are talking, but that's still good. However, one of the characters has a problem with her Raichu that the Raichu is scared of her and it was revealed that she was the one who made Raichu all sad and nervous, poor Raichu......... Luckily, in the end they managed to get back together, at the end of the episode, she even managed to get Ash to help perform and it was nice to see all the Pokmeon to hold hands and dance together while singing the theme song!!! This is quite a special and nice episode to watch!! Would recommend this episode to anyone to watch as it is a very special episode!
