This is a list of episodes in Pokémon: Indigo League, the first season of the Pokémon animated series (ポケットモンスター Poketto Monsutā?, Pocket Monsters), covering the adventures of the series protagonist Ash Ketchum and his friends Pikachu, Misty, and Brock on the way to the Indigo Plateau.

Pokémon: I Choose You!

[First lines. A battle between a Gengar and a Nidorino takes place in Game Boy Color. It is then revealed to be happening in a stadium with the crowds cheering]
Stadium Announcer: And Nidorino begins the battle with a Horn Attack! Oh, but Gengar bounces right back... [Gengar uses Hypnosis] ...and there it is, the Hypnosis power of Gengar. This could be the end of the arena... [Nidorino gets recalled by his trainer] Wait, the trainer recalled Nidorino. Which Pokémon will he use now? [the trainer throws a green and white Poké ball, Gengar steps back and out comes an Onix] Oh, it's Onix. Now this giant Pokémon's on the attack. [the camera pulls back to reveal that the battle is on television] And Gengar jumps aside. Gengar is moving beautifully today...
[As the commentary on TV continues, a boy puts on a green glove]
Ash: [in his mind] Yes, I am Ash. [the camera cuts to him in his room]
Narrator: Ash Ketchum is a boy from Pallet Town.
[We see a Poliwag-style pencil sharpener, a Clefairy-shaped piggy bank and two Zubats hanging on a hanger. We then see the boy, Ash Ketchum, putting his white trainers on]
Ash: [speaks] And now that I'm 10, I can finally get my Pokémon licence.
[The camera shows a poster with a Squirtle, a Bulbasaur and a Charmander]
Narrator: Ten-year olds can get a beginner Pokémon from Professor Oak, the town's Pokémon expert.
Ash: [puts on his hat] I will journey to gain the wisdom of Pokémon training... [picks up a Voltorb-style Poké ball] ...And I hereby declare to the Pokémon of the world, I will be a Pokémon Master! Pokémon Master! That is what I'll...
Delia: Ash! Get to bed! [Ash drops his Voltorb style Poké ball to his mother] It's eleven o'clock and you should be asleep.
Ash: But tomorrow, I begin my Pokémon journey. I can't sleep.
Delia: Well if you can't sleep, at least get ready for tomorrow. Here, watch this. [changes channels on Ash's television]
Professor Oak: [on TV] Good evening, Pallet, tomorrow's the big day for the newest class of Pokémon students. I'd like to introduce you to Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. Each one is available for new trainees. Which one shall you choose?
Delia: Go to bed when this is done.
Ash: [seeing the commercial] All right, I'm going.
Delia: And change into your pajamas, okay? [closes the door]
Professor Oak: [on TV] ...character to help them develop their special powers.
Ash: I'm going.
[The title card comes up]
Ash: Pokémon - I Choose You!

Delia: I packed your sneakers and jeans, nice clean shirts and underwear, and your favorite snacks and some hot chocolate in case you want something hot, but be careful not to burn yourself. And a pair of rubber gloves to do your laundry and a new clothesline to hang it out to dry, and...
Ash: Mom, you're embarrassing me, in front of all these people. Don't you know, I'm a big kid now? Pokémon Trainers can take care of themselves.

Ash: Hey! Get outta there! Agh...
[A Rattata runs away from Ash's backpack]
Pokédex: A forest Pokémon: Rattata. It likes cheese, nuts, fruits, and berries.
Ash: Yeah, but this isn't a forest. It's an open field!
Pokédex: It also comes out into open fields to steal food from stupid travellers.
Ash: That means I'm stupid?
[Pikachu laughs hysterically from a tree branch]

[Ash and Pikachu, who considered the former an enemy he wouldn't obey, are being chased by a flock of Spearows. He "borrowed" the bicycle of a young girl, later known as Misty, to flee them, but he eventually rode off a cliff, falling off of the bike, with the Spearow still eager to attack them. Ash then persuades Pikachu, who became weak after the trip, to enter its Poké Ball, but to no avail. This gives Ash no choice but to muster up the guts to take on the Spearow himself]
Ash: Spearows, do you know who I am?! I am Ash, from the town of Pallet! I'm destined to be the world's number one Pokémon Master. I can't be defeated by the likes of you. [Pikachu, hearing Ash's speech, starts to pay attention to his Trainer's bravery as he continues on] I'm going to capture and defeat you all! You hear me?! [the Spearow hone in on Ash in the final moments before their attack, leading him to plead one last time for Pikachu's safety] Pikachu, go inside the Poké Ball; it's the only way! [Pikachu looks down at the Poké Ball, and then back at him. A lightning bolt strikes behind the Spearow] Come and get me!!!
[As the Spearow charge in toward Ash, Pikachu does what is to Ash the unthinkable, running toward him, climbing onto his shoulder, and jumping off it to counter the Spearow, realizing how much danger his trainer was really in, even if he did hate him at first]
Pikachu: Pika-chuuuu!!!
Ash: Whoa!!
[He releases a powerful Thunder Shock, dispersing the Spearow and creating a large explosion in the area]

[In the aftermath of Pikachu's act of defense toward Ash, the rainy night turns into a sunny morning. The camera pans toward Ash and Pikachu, not before revealing that Misty's bike that Ash took to escape the Spearow flock was destroyed by the Thunder Shock. The two of them slowly wake up]
Pikachu: [weakly] Pikachu...
Ash: [breathes a sigh of relief] Well...we beat 'em.
Pikachu: Chu...
[In the sky, a large golden bird-like Pokémon, which later was revealed as the Legendary Pokémon Ho-Oh, cries out as it flies over Ash and Pikachu as a sign of amazing things to come]
Ash: Huh...? [notices what he does not yet know to be Ho-Oh as it flies off towards a rainbow, leaving a trail of sparkles] What's that?
Pokédex: There is no data. There are still Pokémon yet to be identified.
[Ho-Oh is seen one last time flying off into the bright blue sky]
Narrator This is just the beginning of the amazing adventures of Ash and Pikachu. Their journey is destined to be packed with non-stop action, millions of laughs, heart-pounding perils, and endless excitement. [Ash, holding Pikachu, stops at the top of a hill. Pikachu then licks Ash's face, which moves him to near tears. However, he holds them in, as he realizes he must get to a Pokémon Center to heal Pikachu's wounds as soon as possible] Together, they'll encounter fantastic friends, evil enemies and meet creatures beyond their wildest imagination, and as their story unfolds, we'll unlock the magic and mystery of a most wondrous place: the incredible world of Pokémon!

Pokémon Emergency

[After Misty leaves the Police Station with her burnt bicycle, a hook grabs hold of the Wanted poster on its bottom right corner and removes it from the noticeboard. Then, we notice that the hook is coming from a Meowth balloon controlled by two members from Team Rocket, Jessie and James. Soon, Jessie and James are looking at the Wanted poster]
Jessie: A Wanted poster. How flattering.
James: Flattering? This picture makes me look terrible.
Jessie: Then you should be happy the photographer captured the real you.
James: Exactly.
Jessie: We'll show these bumpkins.
James: The people of Viridian City will be sorry they ever saw this face.
[The camera cuts to a Meowth who can speak human]
Meowth: We're all sorry to see your face. Stay focused. We're here to capture rare and unusual Pokémon. Don't forget, Meowth.
Jessie: Absolutely.
James: But of course.
Meowth: And just remember, I'm the top cat.
James: You got it.
Meowth: Meowth.
[Down on the ground, Officer Jenny is driving Ash and Pikachu to Viridian City's Pokémon Centre when she sees it straight ahead]
Officer Jenny: There it is!
[Viridian City's gigantic Pokémon Centre comes into view]
Ash: Pokémon Centre? It's gigantic.
Officer Jenny: This is tricky. Just hold on. Here we go! (Jumps high on her motorcycle)
Ash: Whoa!
[The motorcycle comes skidding into the Pokémon Centre and stops right in front of the reception desk which is being manned by a Pokémon Nurse called Nurse Joy. Officer Jenny puts her foot on the pedal to stop her motorcycle]
Nurse Joy: We have a driveway, you know.
Officer Jenny: It's a Pokémon Emergency!
Ash: (stands up) Please help it!
Nurse Joy: Looks like a Pikachu. We’ll do what we can. (Turns round to her computer) I need a stretcher for a small electric Pokémon, stat!
[A couple of Chansey enter with a stretcher]
Chansey: Chansey! [Yes, ma'am]
[Nurse Joy puts Ash's injured Pikachu on the stretcher]
Nurse Joy: It'll be okay. (Turns to the Chansey on her left) Rush this Pokémon to the critical care unit.
Chansey: Chansey! [Yes, ma'am] (They take Pikachu away with the stretcher)
[She then puts on a pair of white gloves as one of the Chansey stands next to her]
Nurse Joy: We’ll begin the treatment right away.
Ash: Uh...
Nurse Joy: Who are you?
Officer Jenny: His name is Ash. He’s the Pokémon’s Trainer.
Ash: If there’s anything I can do, please just tell me.
Nurse Joy: You can be more responsible.
Ash: Uh?
Nurse Joy: [sternly] If you want to become a Pokémon trainer, young man, you don’t let your Pokémon battle till it’s in this condition.
Ash: But you don’t know what happened.
Nurse Joy: What’s past is past. Now, we have to heal your Pikachu.
Ash: What can I do?
Nurse Joy: Just leave everything to me.
Ash: Please.
Officer Jenny: It’s in your hands. I know you’ll give the Pokémon excellent care.
Nurse Joy: You got it here just in time.
Officer Jenny: That’s my job. (realises something) Oh my goodness. I left my motorcycle parked at the front desk!
Nurse Joy: Next time, use the driveway.
Officer Jenny: (chuckling sheepishly) Heh heh. (She leaves)
Nurse Joy: Ash, you'll will have to go to the waiting room.
Ash: Can't I... (The door closes after Nurse Joy goes through) Pikachu.

Professor Oak: When my grandson Gary said that you wouldn't have a single new Pokémon by the time you got to Viridian City, I bet him $1,000,000 that he'd be wrong!
Ash: [surprised] Well, money isn't everything, right?
Professor Oak: [dejected] Oh, why do I even bother?

[Misty confronts Ash at the Pokémon Centre with her burnt bicycle]
Misty: [panting] I knew I'd find you here!
Ash: [seeing that her bike is destroyed] Hey, what happened to your bike?!
Misty: What happened to my bike?! YOU happened to my bike, you little loser! This is what's left after you stole it to save your Pokémon! Now I can see why your Pokémon is in whoaoaoaoah! (Tumbles over and falls down)
Ash: Let me help you.
[Misty slaps Ash's left arm]
Misty: I don’t need your help and you’re gonna pay for what you did to my bike!
Ash: I’ll make up for it. I promise I will, really. But I can’t do anything about your bike until...
Misty: [angrily] I don’t want any of your lame excuses, kid. I just want a new bike right now.
Ash: It's my Pikachu. My Pikachu's not too good.
[Misty becomes worried as Ash looks behind at the red light with a needle on it]
Misty: Is it very serious?
Ash: I think so, and there’s nothing I can do to help now.

[Ash, Misty, and Nurse Joy have their lines of sight impaired by a Koffing's Smokescreen attack]
Ash: What are...who are they?!
Jessie: Don't be frightened, little boy.
James: Allow us to introduce ourselves.
[A teenage girl and boy emerge from the smoke]
Jessie: To protect the world from devastation.
James: To unite all peoples within our nation.
Jessie: To denounce the evils of truth and love!
James: To extend our reach to the stars above.
Jessie: Jessie!
James: James.
Jessie: Team Rocket! Blast off at the speed of light!
James: Surrender now or prepare to fight!
Meowth:[appearing from the top of the screen] Meowth! That's right!
Ash: What are you talking about?
Jessie: He just doesn't get it, does he?
Ash: (off camera) How can I? You don't make any sense.
James: We're here for the Pokémon.
Ash: You're NOT getting Pikachu!
Jessie: Pikachu? We're not interested in your precious Electric rat.
James: We seek only rare and valuable Pokémon.
Nurse Joy: You're wasting your time. This is a centre for weak and injured Pokémon.
Jessie: Well, that may be so, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if we find a few little Pokémon gems among all the junk.
Ash: You’re starting to bug me.
Jessie: Isn’t that cute.
James: The boy‘s bugged.
Meowth: Meowth, than let's squash him.
James: Koffing, Attack!
Jessie: Jessie: Ekans, Go!
[Nurse Joy, Ash and Misty flee the scene with Pikachu on the stretcher as Ekans and Koffing cause destruction]

Misty: You grab Pikachu and get out of here! I'll take care of these three clowns.
Jessie: That's pretty big talk coming from such a little lady.
Misty: At least you're right about the pretty part, thanks for the compliment.
James: The girl thinks she's pretty.
Jessie: I agree with her. I think she's pretty, too. Pretty pathetic!
Misty: [annoyed] Hmmmm, I'll show you! Poké Ball, go! [Goldeen comes out rolling and jumping on the floor, to Jessie and James' shock] Goldeen, return! [Goldeen is back inside the Poké Ball]
Jessie: That's her best shot?
James: She's all washed up.

Officer Jenny: Too late, but not for the fireworks!

[The Meowth balloon is flying past the full moon, but Team Rocket is hanging from a rope]
Jessie: Great! A cat losing to a mouse!
Meowth: That Pikachu is no ordinary Pikachu.
James: It's certainly very rare. A perfect prize!
Jessie: Let's catch it!
Meowth: Perhaps, we will.
[Then, the Meowth balloon pops, sending the three characters hurtling through the night]

Ash Catches a Pokémon

Ash: [hugging his Poké-Ball] I love my new little Pokémon!
Misty: I guess it takes a worm to love a worm.
Ash: [sarcastically] Very funny.

Misty: [about Caterpie] It's so gross. [scared] Ash, put that slimy thing back in the Poké-Ball! Bugs are one of the three most disgusting things in the world!
Ash: Aside from you, what are the other disgusting things?
Misty: Very funny. [smashing] Carrots, [kicking] peppers, [hitting with a wooden hammer] and bugs. Everybody has something they don't like and I don't like bugs!
Ash: [making a silly face] Well, yeah, I like carrots, and peppers, and bugs. [now serious] What I don't like is the way you're hurting Caterpie's feelings with your silly fear of bugs.
Misty: [dismissively] Hmph!

Challenge of the Samurai

[Misty screams]
Ash: What's wrong now?
Misty: I saw another bug. Gross!
Ash: Maybe its a... [both he and Pikachu sighed. Then he's in the cow costume] Cow-terpie!

James: Do you have any more bright ideas?
Jessie: Well, unlike you at least I have ideas!
Meowth: Yeah, and they're all bad.
[The Kakunas and Beedrills are suddenly waking up]
James: Uh-oh.
[They're attacked by the swarm of Beedrills offscreen]

Showdown in Pewter City

Ash: My conscience is holding me back! I can't bring myself to beat Brock! I'm imagining his little brothers and sisters stopping me from beating the one person they love!
Misty: Uh, Ash, I think you better you open your eyes!

Brock: Hey Ash, are you sure it's okay if I go with you on your Pokémon journey?
Ash: Sure I'm sure, the more the merrier! And it's good to have somebody to talk with.
Brock: Well, what about that girl who keeps following you?
Ash: I know! I KNOW! Pikachu, let's try to lose her!
Pikachu: Chu! [runs with Ash]
Brock: [catching up] Wait up, Ash!
Misty: [chasing after them] YOU WON'T GET AWAY!

Clefairy and the Moon Stone

Jessie: Well, it looks like Team Rocket is....
James: Blasting off again!
Meowth: That was the Metronome!
Jessie: I give it two thumbs down!
James: Me too!
Meowth: Meowth three!

The Water Flowers of Cerulean City

James: The coast is clear.
Jessie: Nothing to fear.
Meowth: Nobody here!

Misty: Oh no! Staryu looks like it's in real pain!
Ash: It doesn't even have a face. How can you tell?
Misty: Because I'm sensitive to other's feelings! That's how!
Ash: [sarcastically] Oh, yeah? Like I'm not?

Ash: Misty, you're not gonna be a sore loser, aren't you?
Misty: I didn't lose anything! It was just a draw!
Ash: Well, I'm the one who won the badge!
Misty: You know you lost with Butterfree!
Ash: That was just round 1. I made a great comeback!
Misty: If Team Rocket hadn't busted in, I would've destroyed you!
Ash: You're lucky they've showed up. You were about to lose!
Misty: Lose?! I was just getting started!
Ash: Oh, yeah?!
Misty: Oh, yeah!
Brock: Oh, brother!

Battle Aboard the St. Anne

James: Wait! There goes my next paycheck!
Jessie: Who cares about your paycheck? What about mine?!
Meowth: We gotta get out of here!

Captain: May I have your attention? Anyone who didn't leave the ship safely, please say "Aye." Good. Well done. Everyone's safe then.
Narrator: Not everyone, Captain. And as the St. Anne heads to the bottom of the sea, our heroes, are trapped unconscious inside, and so is Team Rocket. Could this be the end?! How will they escape their "watery" fate? I don't know, but, I have a terrible "sinking" feeling.

Pokémon Shipwreck

James: Jessica?
Jessie: Yes, James?
James: Whoever said beauty doesn't last must've been thinking of us!
Jessie: I'll always remember what a wonderful dresser you were!

James: So will I!

James: What is that?!
Misty: Now you've done it! Magikarp has evolved into a Gyarados!
Jessie: Gyarados?! I miss Magikarp!

Jessie: Dimwit! If you're the master, don't act like you're scared of it!
James: I am scared!

Island of the Giant Pokémon

[All Pokémon are speaking in Pokémon language, with English subtitles translating their speech]
Squirtle: Maybe they got eaten by wild Pokémon. [makes a scary face with razor-sharp teeth, making a chomping motion]
Pikachu: Don't say things like that!
Charmander: Yeah, cut it out!
Squirtle: Sorry.

[After a giant Venusaur is spotted]
Squirtle: [to Bulbasaur] You go and speak to it, you guys are like family!
Bulbasaur: No way. Just call me an orphan, I have no family.
Charmander: Good point.
Squirtle: Coward.

[The phone rings]
Giovanni: [answers it] Yes? What?! Pokémon Land has been totally destroyed?! [hangs up; growls] I spent millions on that place!

Beauty and the Beach

Prof. Oak: Your mother's been worried about you, Ash. She says she still thinks of you as her little pumpkin.
Ash: That makes me sound like a baby.
Delia: You'll always be my baby, won't you?
Ash: Yeah.
Delia: Well, I just hope you aren't eating a lot of junk food and getting into any trouble.
Ash: Of course not! [suddenly remembers his boat accident] At least not a lotta trouble.
Delia: What's that mean?
Moe: I'm the one who got into trouble, Mrs. Ketchum. Ash helped out at my restaurant when I really needed help. But even more importantly, your son has been a great inspiration to me.
Delia: That's wonderful! What a relief.
Ash: Thanks, Moe.

[Misty is walking down the catwalk in a beauty contest, wearing a bikini]

Misty: Then how about this!
Gastly: What's that?
Misty: It's a cross! I've also got garlic, a stake, and a hammer!
Gastly: ...What do I look like, a vampire or something?

Bye Bye Butterfree


Abra and the Psychic Showdown


The Tower of Terror

Ash: [after frightening his group with a mask] Sorry, guys! I was just testing you. If we're gonna try to catch a Ghost Pokémon, we gotta learn to deal with fear. That's the only way we can become great Pokémon trainers.
Misty: You must be crazy!
Brock: Don't ever do that!

Haunter vs Kadabra

James: With a flick of this fishing net, we'll round up Pikachu.
Meowth: You mean that's your secret weapon?!
James: It takes a genius to realize a fishing net is the perfect weapon!
Jessie: Oh, James, it's the greatest discovery since Einstein invented the light bulb!
Jessie and James: [sing and dance] Even greater than the chicken who invented the egg!
[The egg falls on them]
James: All of us true geniuses know, of course, that it was actually the egg that preceded the chicken.
Jessie: Of course. I knew that. I had just forgotten.
Meowth: Now you got my brain scrambled! Let's cut the egg-splanations and capture Pikachu!

[concrete is being poured into a hole Team Rocket is trapped in]
Jessie: Hello, up there! Anyone?! We're trapped down here!
James: Stop pouring cement!
Meowth: Get me outta here quick!

Jessie: A little cement....
James: ...will never stop Team Rocket.
Meowth: A little cement?
All three: [flee] We're blasting off again!

Primeape Goes Bananas

Hypno's Naptime


Pokémon Fashion Flash

James: Now we need a total makeover so nobody we ripped off can recognize us!

Team Rocket (James, Jessie, and Meowth): BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD!
Narrator: So long, Salon Roquet!

The Punchy Pokémon

Meowth: Honey baked ham! Roast leg of lamb!! Strawberry jam!!!
James: Sirloin steaks! Chocolate cakes!!
Jessie: Can't you numbskulls think of anything but food?!

Sparks Fly For Magnemite

Ash: Gee, that Magnemite is following Pikachu around like some sort of streaker.
Brock: Um, Ash, you mean 'stalker'.

Dig Those Diglett

James: Some principle of induced evolution.
Jessie: [reads a manual] It says here that Pokémon need to accumulate a certain amount of experience points before they can successfully evolve.
James: [depressed] Our experience is nothing but losing.

The Ninja Poké-Showdown

Aya: Born in darkness, living in darkness, such is the fate of the ninja. I am Aya, ninja warrior!
Misty: [about Aya's uniform color] But don't you think that color is a little bright for a ninja?
Aya: I don't need your fashion report!

The Flame Pokémon-athon!

Dario: [growls after his defeat] You're the reason I didn't win the Pokémon challenge! Team Rocket's the worst.
Jessie: We'll just have to plan better next year.
James: And maybe you can get some nicer riding clothes.
Meowth: And give that smelly bird a bath.

The Kangaskhan Kid


The Bridge Bike Gang

[Ash, Misty and Brock finds out Jessie and James used to belong to a bike gang]
James: I guess our secret past is not a secret anymore.
Ash: I kind of wish it still was!

Ditto's Mysterious Mansion

James: Will you stop it, Meowth?!
Jessie: The only way we can get out of this mess is to dress you up like a Dratini and present you to the boss.
Meowth: Pea-brains! This won't work!!

Pikachu's Goodbye

Meowth: It's a Pika-Palooza!
Jessie: We're at the Pika of our powers.
James: Chu can say that again, Jess!

The Battling Eevee Brothers

Misty: Stop that!

Jessie: Well, it's back to eating lunch for losers.
James: Victory tasted a lot better.

Wake Up Snorlax!


Showdown at Dark City

Jessie: Well, that was a complete waste of time.
James: Looks like we're through.
Meowth: [notices Electabuzz and Scyther charging at them] Huh? Unfortunately, we're not quite through yet.
Jessie and James: Huh?
Scyther: Scyther!
Electabuzz: Blblblblblblbl!
Team Rocket: AAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!

The Song of Jigglypuff


Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon

[Gary is digging for fossils and stumbles upon one]
Gary: Success! My first Pokémon fossil!
Fan Girls: Yay! Gary, Gary, he's the best! Found a fossil before the rest! Go, Gary!
[An expert comes over, takes the fossil out of Gary's hands and examines it]
Gary: Impressive, isn't it? Found it on my first try. Looks like a brain from an extinct Pokémon.
Expert: This is-
Gary: [hopeful] A brain?
Expert: It's fossilized Pokémon manure.
[Gary collapses in shock]
Fan Girls: Ewwwwww. Yuck! Gross!

A Chansey Operation


Holy Matrimony!

[After hearing James' false but tragic story]
Jessie: That's such a sad ending!
Meowth: That poor kid!
Brock: I can't believe James is gone!
Ash: I miss him!
Misty: [annoyed] Hmph...JAMES IS STANDING RIGHT HERE!
James: [confused] Aah! I'm all mixed up!

Ash: WOAH! Look at that!
Misty: It's huge!
Brock: I've seen shopping malls smaller than this place!
Misty: It must have a hundred rooms!
Ash: It's the biggest mansion I've ever seen!
Hopkins (the butler at James' family's mansion): This is not the mansion! This little dog house is for Growlie.

Meowth: [sighs] I guess all of that money and luxury was just too tempting for James to give up.

So Near, Yet So Farfetch'd


Who Gets to Keep Togepi?


Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden

[Ash, Brock and Misty join Pikachu and see an entire field full of Bulbasaur, and the pollen trail going straight to a giant, dead tree]
Ash: Wow! This must be the Mysterious Garden!
[Down in the field, the Bulbasaur are starting the ceremony by chanting their names]
Group of Bulbasaur: [chanting] Bulba, bulba, bulbasaur. Bulba, bulba, bulbasaur. Bulba, bulba, bulbasaur...
[As they continue chanting, the branches of the tree start growing, nearly going up to the moon. Soon, flowers start blooming in the field and flowers start to blossom on the tips of the branches of the tree, leaving our heroes in wonderment]
Ash: That's neat!
Misty: Wow! It's so pretty!
[Then, some giant bangs are heard and a glow is seen inside the tree]
Ash: What's that banging sound?
[The source of the banging is soon revealed to be a Venusaur, who steps onto the tree stump in front of the tree where it came from]
Venusaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"]
Ash: Look, you guys! It's a Venusaur!
Misty': It's giant!
[Ash gets out his Pokédex to scan Venusaur]
Ash's Pokédex: Venusaur, the final form of the Bulbasaur evolution. This Seed Pokémon soaks up the sun's rays as a source of energy.
Brock: Hmmm, But that kind of behaviour makes it sound like a plant.
Ash: I don't see my Bulbasaur anyplace around here!
Misty: Hey, Ash, your Bulbasaur still has that bandage on its head.
Ash: Hmmmm.
Pikachu: [sees Ash's Bulbasaur; jumping up in excitement] Pika!
Ash: Hey, there it is! Over here, Bulba-
Brock: [covers Ash's mouth] Hey! Don't forget. Human beings aren't supposed to be here.
Ash: Oh, right.
Misty: Let's watch the festival.
[Soon, the festival is underway]
Venusaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"]
All the Bulbasaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"]
Venusaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"]
All the Bulbasaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"]
Venusaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"]
All the Bulbasaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"]
Venusaur: SAUUUURR! ("RISE!")
All the Bulbasaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"]
[Ash's Bulbsasaur is watching quietly]
Venusaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"]
All the Bulbasaur: SAUUUURR! ("RISE!")
Ash's Bulbasaur: Bulbasaur.
Venusaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"
All the Bulbasaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"]
[As the festival goes on, the Bulbasaur start glowing]
Venusaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"]
All the Bulbasaur: SAUUUURR! ["RISE!"]
Ash, Brock and Misty are amazed by what they have seen. Meanwhile, Team Rocket have come across the vine wall blocking the entrance to the festival]
Jessie: How do we get in there?
James: Why doesn't just Meowth just Scratch his way through with his claws?
Meowth: I just filed them.
Jessie: [holding an axe] Alright, garden wall, you axed for it!
James: [holding a saw] We're the toughest team you ever saw!
Meowth: [holding a pair of scythes] Let's cut ta da chase!
[However, before they can start chopping the wall apart, the vines attack them and force them back]
Jessie: A temper tantrum, eh?! Let's get to the root of its problem!
Meowth: En garde!
[They charge at the vines, but the vines force them to retreat]
James: I think its bite is as bad as its bark!
[Back in the field, the Bulbasaur begin to glow bright. The glows soon fade to reveal that most of them have evolved into Ivysaur]
One of the Ivysaur: Ivysaur! ["Alright!"]
Ash: Alright! [scans Ivysaur with his Pokédex]
Ash's Pokédex: The Seed Pokemon, Ivysaur, Bulbasaur's evolved form. The bulb on its back absorbs nourishment and blooms into a large flower.
Venusaur: Sauuuur. ["Begin!"]
All the Ivysaur: Sauuuur. ("We begin!")
Venusaur: Sauuuur. ["Begin!"]
All the Ivysaur: Sauuuur. ["We begin!"]
Ash: This must be their evolution festival.
Brock: For a long time, people have disagreed whether Bulbasaur is an animal-type Pokémon or a plant-type. If either plants or animals disappear from the planet, life wouldn't go on.
Misty: They need each other to live and grow.
Pikachu: Pika.
Brock: Maybe the Bulbasaur are a sign that all life on earth is connected.
Ash: Maybe you're right. I wonder if my Bulbasaur's gonna evolve, too. [surprised by what he sees]
Brock: Huh?
[Ash and his friends see that Ash's Bulbasaur hasn't evolved and is now resisting the evolutionary process]
Misty: It's not evolving!
Ash: Why not?
Brock: It looks like it's trying NOT to evolve!
Pikachu: Pika?
Venusaur: Venus, Venusaur? ["What? Who is that over there?"]
Ash's Bulbasaur: Bulbasaur?
Venusaur: Venusaur? ["Why have you not evolved?"]
Ash's Bulbasaur: Bulba? ["Pardon?"]
Venusaur: Venu, Venusaur? ["I said, 'Why have you not evolved?'"]
Ash's Bulbasaur: Bulba, bulbasaur. ["I just wasn't ready to evolve!"]
Venusaur: Venusaur, Venusaur, Venusaur? ["All Bulbasaur must evolve! Why do you refuse?"]
Ash's Bulbasaur: Bulbasaur! Bulba bulba... [shakes its head] ...bulbasaur, saur! ["I didn't come here for this festival! And I don't think I'll ever be ready to evolve!"]
Venusaur: Venusaur? Venu SAUR! ["What? How disgraceful of you to trespassing our festival!"]
All the Ivysaur: Ivysaur! ["Trespasser!"]
Ash's Bulbasaur: Bulbasaur?
[Ash, Brock and Misty have seen what has happened]
Misty: The others are getting really angry at Bulbasaur.
Ash: I wonder why?
Brock: Bulbasaur's more stubborn than you!
Venusaur: Venusaur! [uses Vine Whip on Ash's Bulbasaur]
Ash's Bulbasaur: BULBA! ["YIKES!"]
Ash: Hey! [jumps down onto the field]
Pikachu: Pik! [follows Ash]
Ash: [stands in the way of Venusaur's Vine Whip attack to protect his Bulbasaur] Oh!
Pikachu: Pikapi!
Ash's Bulbasaur: Bulbasaur?
[Ash turns and grins at Pikachu and Bulbasaur]

Riddle Me This

[Ash and the gang were in a wading pool, trying to figure out a riddle]
Brock: It's where a firefighter can never win. Where could that be?
Misty: Where can a firefighter never win? Maybe someplace that doesn't have enough water. [realizes Togepi has wandered off to shore] Huh? Togepi?
Togepi: [seeing the Gyrados fixture] Toge.
Misty: What are you doing, Togepi? Togepi, move away! That water's boiling. [Togepi climbs to the top of the fixture and jumps on it multiple times before opening the secret entrance]

The Case of the K-9 Caper!


Pokémon Paparazzi


The Ultimate Test

Narrator: There seems to be a little mix-up!

The Breeding Center Secret

Jessie: James! Watch where you're throwing that dirt!
James: Watch?! I can't see the foot in front of my face!
Meowth: If you don't quit squawkin', you'll see the foot in front of your face! Mine!!!!

Fire and Ice

[Ash and Pikachu were having a meal at an all-you-can-eat buffet when Misty and Togepi arrive]
Misty: Careful, Ash. All that food can make your belly as big as your head.
Togepi: Toge, Toge.
Ash: Thanks, Mist, but I can't help it. I got all this food for free! That's 'cause she happens to be a big fan of mine.
Misty: [puts Togepi down] Ash, everybody in the Pokémon League gets to eat here for free. [does not realize that Togepi slides off the booth seat and heads across the floor]
Ash: What?! Really?
Misty: I know you won twice, and that's great. But you can't let that make you crazy.
Ash: I can't? How come?
Misty: Oh, well. I give up.
Pikachu: [seeing Togepi pulling the tablecloth with the cutlery on top] Pika, Pika! [the cutlery falls over] PIKACHU!!! [dives in, but Togepi walks out of harm's way and the cutlery lands around Pikachu, who catches the fork with the teeth] Pikachu.
Togepi: Toge, Toge, Toge. [laughs at Pikachu holding the fork with the mouth] Togepi!
