American Air Date: April 24th, 2004
Today's training finds Satoshi and his friends researching Taneboh with Odamaki-Hakase. As they look for a place for the pokemon to live after their homes were destroyed by landslides, an obsessed Musashi challenges Haruka to make her Karasalis evolve. Everyone insists that Musashi's pokemon is actually a Mayuld, so Haruka brings out her Karasalis to show the Rocket-Dan member what a real Karasalis looks like. During the battle, Haruka's pokemon evolves into Agehanto, infuriating Musashi. Haruka and her friends win the battle, and as they celebrate Musashi battles with her Mayuld in order to hasten its evolution. She decides that she needs to battle Satoshi's strong pokemon to get the experience her pokemon needs, so she challenges our heroes to another battle. This time, Musashi's pokemon evolves, but it turns into a Dokukeiru rather than an Agehanto, confirming everyone's belief that Musashi's previous pokemon was a Mayuld. Musashi is surprisingly happy with her new pokemon as she commands it in battle, but the victory is ultimately rewarded to Haruka and her friends. Afterward, Odamaki-Hakase congratulates Haruka on her new pokemon and leaves our heroes to return to Mishiro Town, wishing the gang good luck on all their endeavors.
Dub-wise, it's pretty standard, especially after the weird-ass editing in the previous episode. There really isn't much to report for this one.
Professor Birch: "Ash, keep up your training. And May, take care of that Beautifly. It's a winner."
Originally, Odamaki-Hakase was a lot more specific. He actually mentioned each trainer's specific goals, wishing Satoshi good luck on his Pokemon Gym Battles while wishing Haruka good luck on her Contests.
