his fourth Houen Gym Badge, so the gang wonders where they should go
next. Takeshi says that they should pass through Touka City on
the way to Hiwamaki City, so it is decided to challenge Senri, the
Touka City Gym Leader and father of both Haruka and Masato. On
the way, the gang comes across a Patcheel, a panda-like pokemon with
various spots on its body. The gang is soon approached by a woman
who is searching for a Patcheel with a specific configuration of spots
on its body. Satoshi and his friends decide to help, so the
search for the Patcheel begins! After picking their way through a
variety of different Patcheel, the gang finds the pokemon that the

but Patcheel is separated from the group during the battle.

gang to the top of a mountain. There, among a field of

new season, but other than that, it's the same old same old.
Apparently, as of
this episode, the Badge Case edit ceases to be a Kids' WB!-only
phenomenon and finds its way to the rest of the world. From now
on, Canada, the UK, Australia, and every other country that gets the
English dub will have to put up with the red rectangle that we
Americans have had to put up with all this time.
Then, two seconds are
cut from the scene right after the title screen.
"When it comes to grabbin' Spinda, looks like we win-da!"
Sorry, but that was
just too lame to ignore.
Finally, a second is
cut from the TO BE CONTINUED... screen.
