Important Characters: Shakujii-Hakase (Professor Jacuzzi)
As our heroes
are eating lunch one day, the stomach pokemon Gokurin appears and eats
all of the gang's food! Before they get a chance to react,
Satoshi hears a siren that causes everyone in the town to shut
themselves into their homes! Satoshi-tachi eventually come across
a bread shop, where a few dozen Gokurin have gathered to eat all the
food in the shop! The gang is overtaken by the pokemon, but
they're pulled to safety by Junsa and her grass-type pokemon. The
police officer tells the young trainers that the Gokurin are
threatening to eat all the food in the city! She takes them to
the city's Pokemon Center, where an anti-Gokurin defense center has
been set up. There, a man who has been studying the pokemon for
50 years named Shakujii-Hakase tells our heroes that he has a plan to
get rid of the pests. He has a specially-made Polock created to
attract the Gokurin, but once the food is released and the Gokurin
devour it, they return to their rampage of the city.
Shakujii-Hakase decides to get serious and utilizes a giant truck
equipped with a beam that's able to suck up the Gokurin! The
pokemon are then launched away in the other direction to a far-off
area, out of the city. Shakujii-Hakase gets rid of all the
Gokurin except one before his machine freezes up. Satoshi decides
to step in and have his Kimori take care of Gokurin, and so a battle
begins while Shakujii-Hakase attempts to repair his machine. The
professor finishes his preparations after a short time, but when he
resume sucking up the Gokurin, he sucks up Satoshi's Kimori as
Gokurin, who's at a subatomic size, uses a combination of Swallow and
Spit Up, a combination which disrupts Shakujii-Hakase's machine!
As a result, Gokurin and Kimori are spit out of the large truck, but
now they're the size of skyscrapers! The giant pokemon begin to
Satoshi and his friends try to figure out how to end Gokurin's
rampage. It is finally decided to capture the pokemon, so
Shakujii-Hakase captures the Gokurin with a Heavy Ball. Kimori
returns to its normal size, and it seems as if the city can return to
normal. Satoshi and his friends now return to their journey to
reach Touka City
As for the dub, it
has some interesting points. I really liked
Professor Jacuzzi's voice, since it sounded so different from the usual
scientist voice 4Kids likes to use. I'm also surprised that 4Kids
kept the rather uncommon piece of music that plays when Shakujii-Hakase
is sucking up the Gokurin and firing them off into the distance, since
they usually replace weird pieces of music like that.
