Orchid-Hakase Pokemon Lecture: Yadoking
Japanese Air Date: January 22nd, 2004

Important Characters: Ayane (Dr. Abby), Doctor Masuda (Dr. Moss), Johnny (Johnny)
the Rocket-Dan one day, Haruka's Eneko accidentally breathes in some of
the smoke discharged from Satoshi's Cotoise, causing it to lose its
voice. Haruka rushes her pokemon to the nearest town to treat it
at the Pokemon Center, but she is dismayed to learn that the city she
goes to doesn't even have a Pokemon Center! Luckily, there is a
Pokemon Clinic in the area, so Haruka decides to take her Eneko
there. The owner of the clinic, Ayane, is able to heal Eneko's
throat by using special massage techniques. While Eneko is being
treated, Masato notices a picture of Ayane, her Eneko, and a Ribbon
Cup, the grand prize for the winner of the Grand Festival. It is
then that Haruka remembers that Ayane is the name of a legendary
Coordinator! Haruka is excited to be able to meet such a famous
Coordinator and listens intently as Ayane tells the group about her
days as a Coordinator, why she quit participating in Pokemon Contests,
why she started up the Pokemon Clinic, and how her Eneko evolved into
an Enekororo. Haruka wants to see Ayane's pokemon, so she gladly
shows the young Coordinator her Enekororo, Johnny. Later in the
day, the Rocket-Dan go to the clinic, in disguise, in an effort to
steal Eneko and Enekororo. When their identities are found out,
the trio snags the two pokemon and flies off in their giant Nyasu
balloon. Johnny quickly frees itself and Eneko, but the
Rocket-Dan won't quit yet! During the ensuing battle, Ayane
orders Enekororo to use Blizzard and tells Haruka to order her Eneko to
do the same thing. After a few failed attempts, Haruka's Eneko
masters the attack, using it to defeat the Rocket-Dan. After the
battle, Haruka thanks Ayane for all her help, and the gang continues on
the path to Shidake Town.

Isn't it a bit weird
that nobody notices Meowth speaking at this point? The reason for
a lack of surprise is because in the original, Nyasu just made the
noise that every other Nyasu makes ("Nya nyaa"). It isn't until
Nyasu's line later in the scene about Ayane's massage feeling
good (in the dub, the corresponding line is "Ooh! That's
good! Now a little bit lower and to the riiight~") that the
pokemon actually uses human language.
Of course, the whole
scene is pretty ridiculous anyways when you consider the fact that most
of the trainers-of-the-day never seem to be bothered that these two
crooks in white and grey uniforms have a Nyasu who can speak human
language and walk on two legs. I mean, no one else ever questions
it, so why is Ayane the only one to think there's something odd about
