In order to contine on their journey, Satoshi-tachi must pass through a cave full of Iwaku. Wanting to save the cave until the next morning, the trio decides to camp out for the night. Before going to bed, the gang sees Purin again. The little pokemon puts everyone to sleep with its song, including Buru, who just happened to be wandering by. When it awakens, the bulldog pokemon is shocked to see its face marked up with marker and, seeing that Purin was the one who marked up its face, decides to steal the marker from Purin. Afterwards, the bulldog pokemon continues its search for Nyasu's tail. The Rocket-Dan find it and decide to keep it for themselves, replacing Nyasu with the bulldog pokemon. A rejected Nyasu finds the microphone-less Purin, and the two relate their sorrows with one another. Satoshi-tachi and Musashi-tachi catch up with Nyasu and Buru, and a battle ensues. The Rocket-Dan lose (as always) and blast off, with Buru following behind. In its pursuit, Buru drops Purin's microphone, enabling the little pokemon to sing again! Purin sings, putting everyone to sleep. When Satoshi-tachi wake up, they decide to tackle the Iwaku Cave, only to find that all the Iwaku are fast asleep! It seems that Purin's been through the cave before them, and Satoshi-tachi continue on their journey to Kogane City.
The writers also went a little pun-crazy in this episode. While the meaning of nothing was drastically changed, we do get a slew of bad puns. I guess 4Kids got in one of those moods...
don't want to go through the Iwaku cave because no one has any
pokemon to fight all the Iwaku, right? Well, what about Kojirou's
Utsubot? It's a plant-type, and last time I checked plant types
strong against ground-types. A few Razor Leaf attacks and the
would be through the cave already.
