and his friends are lost! As the gang tries to figure out where
they are, an Airm'd swoops in and grabs Haruka! Satoshi, Takeshi,
and Masato try to follow, but they are stopped by a group of hooded men
who forbids them from entering the forest where Haruka has been
taken. It turns out that the forest is a sort of refuge for
grass-type pokemon, and that humans have been forbidden from
entering! Satoshi finds a way into the forest anyway, and it
isn't long before he runs into Haruka and a Fushigidane she befriended
along the way. As the two trainers hang out with the various
grass pokemon, including the Fushigibana who leads the group, they are
attacked by the Rocket-Dan. Their mecha is no match for the
combined power of the paradise's grass-type pokemon, and before long
the mecha is sent packing. As Satoshi and his friends prepare to
leave the forest for good, the Fushigidane who Haruka had befriended
jumps into the young trainer's arms, asking to be taken along.
The grass-type pokemon agree to let the young pokemon go, and so a new
addition is made to Haruka's team.
speculates that the Rocket-Dan's mecha (the Ofukuro-san, in the Japanese
version) is a combination of the mother from ATASHIn'CHI
and the mother from Kasumin,
so I guess that's where that
particular mecha comes from.
dubbed version is almost completely edit-free. There are fewer
time cuts than usual, which seems really odd to me. Another odd
thing is that they showed the Rocket-Dan's mecha do the bii-da thing
when they removed the same thing from the previous episode. 4Kids
can be really difficult to read sometimes.
you know the shots of Team Rocket's mecha scooping up pokemon and Ash's
and May's reaction shots right before Jessie and James perform their
motto? In the Japanese version, the show's commercial break takes
place at this time, and after that those last five seconds are
replayed. 4Kids cut out this repeated footage for the dub, since
their commerical break took place earlier in the episode..
no TO BE CONTINUED... time cut!
