Satoshi-tachi are having a campout when Takeshi falls ill from over-exhaustion.  While Takeshi rests in a nearby cabin, Satoshi and Kasumi attempt to complete the chores that Takeshi peforms everyday.  The two soon see how much they take Takeshi for granted, as simple tasks such as waxing the rock pokemon and cooking dinner turn out to be a greater challenge than any pokemon battle.  After a tired Satoshi-tachi go to sleep, the Rocket-Dan sneak in and kidnap all of our heroes' pokemon.  Satoshi and Kasumi fall for one of the Rocket-Dan's traps, and all seems lost until Takeshi arrives!  Takeshi, revitalized after a hard day's work, uses his pokemon to quickly send the Rocket-Dan battling.  The next day, Takeshi is back to his normal routine and everything returns to normal.

This is one of those episodes that serves no purpose other than giving Takeshi fans another reason to like him.  The plot isn't advanced one tiny bit, but that's OK because it's a fun episode.  Kinda like those calm episodes of Tenchi where there's no fighting or action of any kind.  And I find it funny how Musashi is the only person who likes Kasumi's cooking--I guess all those years of being in foster care has given her an iron stomach, huh? 

Alteration-wise, there's really nothing to report.  No paint, no bad dialogue, nothing but the usual music edits.  Even Takeshi's book of chores is unaltered--in some scenes, the cover's on the left side, but in others, the cover's on the right side.  It's the same way in the Japanese version!!  Oh well, I guess no news is good news...
