Orchid-Hakase Pokemon Lecture: Marril
Japanese Air Date: October 16th, 2003
American Air Date: October 23rd, 2004
Important Characters: Arissa (Eliza)
Haruka is busy training for her upcoming Pokemon Contest when she comes across an Eneko! Haruka is instantly taken by Eneko's charm and decides that she has to capture it! However, Eneko doesn't seem to be feeling so well! Takeshi is reminded of an Aroma Therapy Laboratory in the area that's famous for revitalizing tired pokemon, and so he convinces Haruka to take the pokemon there. When the gang arrives, they are greeted by the woman in charge of the laboratory, Arissa. As Arissa heals Eneko with an alluring scent, the Rocket-Dan plot to steal all the potion to give to the Boss. The Rocket trio attacks, and in the process they nab Eneko as well as the mixtures they were after. As Haruka and the others try to retrieve the pokemon, Nyasu starts to fall for Eneko! Musashi wants to catch the pokemon for herself, but Nyasu opposes, thinking that being a member of their group would mean only trouble and pain for the little cat pokemon. Nyasu tries to hide the pokemon, but he isn't able to keep it up for long when Arissa has her Utsudon use Sweet Scent to lure all the pokemon in the area to her location. Once everyone gathers, a battle ensues, allowing Haruka to practice fighting with her Agehanto. Haruka's pokemon wins the battle, and the Rocket-Dan is sent blasting off. As Satoshi-tachi bid Arissa farewell, Eneko gets itself captured by Haruka! Now that Haruka has a new pokemon, the group is able to continue on their journey.
Haruka's brother does

this episode. FOUR. Kasumi was annoying with it in Jouto,
but she never took it to the extreme that Masato did in this
episode. The episode itself was alright enough, but this horrible
running gag just drug the episode's quality down greatly in my

infomercial on it."
And then, when Eliza
shows up a few lines later:
"Wah! You must be Eliza the therapist! You're much more
beautiful in person than on TV!"
So tell me,
4Kids: When does Brock ever get the chance to sit down and watch
TV? It's kind of hard to watch infomericals when you're
constantly on the road, and I don't recall seeing any of the characters
have the time to watch television except for Satoshi in the first
episode of the first series.
knows everything that he does about Arissa's lab from a magazine article. Since, you
know, it's a lot more feasible to be reading about somebody when you're
traveling through some forest or the desert than it is to watch a TV
program on them.
And, two seconds are
cut from the TO BE CONTINUED... screen.
