Japanese Air Date: May 06th, 2004
American Air Date: April 23rd, 2005
Important Characters: Suzumura (Sullivan), Nushi (Nero), Hama-chan (Hannah)
eating lunch one day when the young trainer falls and drops his Badge
Case! The case lands in the mouth of a giant Namazun, and it
seems as if the catfish pokemon has no intention of returning it.
Satoshi jumps into the lake to go after the pokemon, but the chase is
cut short when his foot gets caught in some of the seaweed at the
lake's bottom! Luckily, Satoshi is saved by an old fishing master
named Suzumura. The old man reveals that he's been going after
this giant pokemon for 50 years now, and he offers to teach the young
trainers how to fish in order to catch it. The training begins,
but nobody seems to be getting any better. Fortunately, the giant
Namazun happens to tug on Satoshi's line, and a wild chase
begins. Satoshi has his Heigani use Crab Hammer on him to propel
him over the Namazun, enabling him to fish it out of the water.
Namazun drops the Badge Case, but the pokemon isn't finished yet!
After a failed attempt by the Rocket-Dan to capture the giant pokemon,
Suzumura lets out his Mokoko to fight the pokemon. When that
battle fails, the fishing master reveals his secret weapon--a Master
Ball! Suzumura throws it, but the pokemon catches the Master Ball
in its mouth and eats it! Regardless, Satoshi has his Badge Case
back, so he's ready to continue on his way to Hiwamaki City.
anyway, I'll bet 4Kids really hates Kids' WB! for forcing them to
continue with this stupid Badge Case edit. Up until now, the case
only really appeared for a brief shot at the beginning of a post-Gym
Leader episode, but here the damn thing is all over the place.
Despite the edits, though, the episode turned out really well. I
like the voice 4Kids gave to the fishing master, and I enjoyed
hearing the original music so much in this episode.
