To get to the next city, Satoshi-tachi must travel through the mysterious Forest of Ubame. They come across a young boy, Naoto, trying to train his Kamonegi. He wants to teach it to use the Cut attack to chop forest wood so that he can use it to make charcoal. Naoto wants to be a pro at making charcoal, just like Yosaku, but his Kamonegi won't listen to him. Satoshi-tachi come across Naoto again at the Pokemon Center, where he tells Joi that his Kamonegi is missing. It turns out that the Kamonegi is wandering around on its own in the forest, and it wanders right into the Rocket-Dan's clutches. Naoto is finds his pokemon and, after stealing Kamonegi's leek back from Kojirou, gains his pokemon's trust. Kamonegi, now with a newfound respect for its trainer, stops the Rocket-Dan and learns the Cut attack. Naoto presents the chopped timber to Yosaku, and Yosaku praises the young trainer. With Naoto gaining the respect of his mentor, Satoshi-tachi continue their journey.
Oh well, at least the episode presents us with something from the game--the Forest of Ubame and the shrine inside it. Sure, the forest doesn't look as nice as it does in the fourth movie, but what do you expect from a weekly-produced series with a budget like this?
The only other
thing I can
think of for this episode is the usual god-spirt dialogue stuff, this
revolving around the shrine at the center of the Forest. "God of
the Forest," "Spirit of the Forest," it's all the same, isn't it?
