and his friends are traveling to their next destination when it begins
to rain. The group frantically looks for shelter and become lucky
when they come across a large mansion. However, as soon as the
gang goes through the entrance, the front door shuts and locks
itself! Trapped inside, Haruka begins to blame Masato for their
predicament. An argument starts that ends with Masato running
away. Satoshi-tachi begin their search for their young friend
while Haruka stubbornly refuses to apologize. Along the way,
Masato manages to meet the ghost pokemon, Kagebouzu, and it is revealed
that the pokemon more or less owns the mansion they're trapped
in. Masato decides to use the pokemon to get back at his sister
by having it use its Psychic abilities to scare Haruka and the
gang. After a while, the Rocket-Dan, who are also trapped in the
mansion, come for Haruka's Achamo, so Masato steps up to stop
them. Haruka sees this gesture and apologizes to Masato as the
two siblings send the Rocket-Dan blasting off again. Masato says
goodbye to his new pokemon friend as our heroes leave the mansion to
continue their journey.

Monsutaari, and b) the song was awkwardly placed in the Japanese
When Haruka enters the room where Masato tries to protect
Achamo from the Rocket-Dan, the second Advanced Generation opening theme, The Challenger!!, begins to
play and keeps playing until the cabinet starts to fall toward
Masato. It's replaced by background music in the dub.
