During a morning meal, Heigani's proves itself to be too enthusiastic for its own good as it ruins everyone's meal.  Satoshi decides that his pokemon needs some special training, so he finds an abandoned gold mine for his next training excercise.  There, he has Haruka and Masato pretend to be ghosts in an effort to scare Heigani into its senses, but the duo's charade only causes the crab pokemon to attack them instead.  The two are sent rolling along on a mine cart, and when it stops they are apprehended by a Yamirami.  The Yamirami, who had befriended Nyasu earlier, is coerced into playing tricks on the other members of the group as Haruka and Masato are trapped in a net in the mine's maintenance facility.  Satoshi and Takeshi search for their friends, and it isn't too long before they come face-to-face with the darkness pokemon.  They are able to convince Yamirami that Nyasu is just using it to capture their pokemon as Haruka and Masato, who had been able to free themselves, arrive on the scene.  The Rocket-Dan appear and set off a bomb, causing a cave-in that forces everyone to evacuate the shaft.  After everyone safely makes it outside, Yamirami joins Satoshi and his friends in attacking the Rocket-Dan, and soon they're sent blasting off again.  Everyone waves to the Yamirami, who seems determined to find a new playground on Muro Island.

It really seems like it's taking a long time for Satoshi to get that rematch with Touki going, doesn't it?  I know that this episode was supposed to be about training Satoshi's Heigani, but it really doesn't seem like it learned anything at the end.  Is Heigani any stronger after this episode?  Is it better behaved?  Is it more useful than it used to be?  Unfortunately it isn't, making this just one more throw-away episode.

The dub side of this episode isn't too special.  We get some more digital paint on Muro Island, thanks to Musashi's short skirt, but other than that nothing too major happens.

Cut--2 seconds altogether
A second from the episode's first pan shot is cut.

Another second is cut right after the title screen.

Dialogue Edit
Everyone brings up this line, so I will too.  This occurs right as Jessie takes out the bomb that eventually destroys the gold mine:

Jessie:  "Now you've done it!"
James:  "But Jessie, sweetheart..." 

Kojirou doesn't give Musashi any sort of pet name in the original version--the whole "sweetheart" bit was added in by the dubbers.

Paint Edit
When everyone's outside the mine, Musashi's skirt must have been too short for 4Kids' liking, because it's made longer in the dub.  This makes this the third episode since Advanced Generation started where Musashi's skirt has paint added to it.

Left:  The original scene
Right:  The scene as seen in the dub.

I have a few pictures of the shots that were censored on a separate page for you guys.

Cut--3 seconds altogether
A second is cut from the first scene after Kids' WB!'s final commercial break.

And two seconds are cut from the TO BE CONTINUED... screen.
