Episode Summary

To Master The Onix-pected
Ash and Brock are watching Bruno of the Elite 4 on TV, when Misty turns it off and tells Ash to do some real training. Delia then mentions that she heard that Bruno likes to train at Mt. Hideaway near Pallet Town. They decide to try and go find him. On the way up the mountain they have a quick ordeal with Team Rocket trying to steal from an old lady. While walking on the mountain they notice that there is a giant trail, and t was made by a giant Onix that is coming after them! All of a sudden Bruno himself appears and saves them. Ash asks Bruno to train him, but Bruno's lessons are not what Ash had expected. Meanwhile, Team Rocket decide to capture the giant Onix, which causes it to go on a rampage.moreless

  • Bruno the Elite Four!

    Great episode because Bruno makes his very own appearence in this episode! He is known as the Elite Four of the Pokemon League and collects Rock/Ground types. What really bugged me is when Ash always asked Bruno if there's a secret to Pokemon training, but he would always say no. At least Bruno revealed it to him later on.
