and his friends are eating outside one day, enjoying Takeshi's cooking.
A fight breaks out when Satoshi's Heigani takes some of Achamo's food,
causing everyone to run about frantically. Meanwhile, the
Rocket-Dan are lying down, starving, when an apple falls into Kojirou's
hand. The apple belongs to a group of Kinokoko who live in the
forest, so the Rocket trio take all of the pokemon's apples. They
don't seem concerned at the group of angry pokemon until a few of them
evolve into Kinogassa, a tall fighting-type pokemon! The mushroom
pokemon chase the Rocket-Dan toward Satoshi-tachi's campsite, where
Satoshi and the gang are recovering from their own troubles. The
Kinogassa appears and attack, causing everyone at the campsite to be
sent blasting off. Our heroes and the Rocket-Dan are split up
into small groups , and everyone has their own adventures as they try
to reunite with their friends. Masato, Nyasu, Haruka, Heigani,
and Achamo end up at the bottom of a large pit where the mushroom
pokemon store all their fruit. The pokemon attack, and Satoshi's
Heigani works overtime trying to protect Haruka's crying pokemon.
Just as all hope seems lost, Haruka's Achamo evolves into
Wakashamo! As everyone else arrive on the scene, Haruka's
pokemon, who is now part fighting-type, has a one-on-one battle with
the leader of the Kinogassa. After some hand-to-hand combat
without any special pokemon techniques, the two pokemon gain a mutual
respect and stop their battle. With the conflict resolved,
Satoshi and his friends decide to resume their meal, this time with
Haruka's new pokemon.
that the dubbed version is out, it's safe to watch Destiny Deoxys without having
spoilers thrown at you left and right. Anyway, the English
version of this episode shortens the big fight at the end of the
episode, but I expected as much when I watched the episode in
Japanese. Though I really have to question the censors' mentality
when cutting the sort of footage they do; why is getting hit in the
face six times worse than getting hit in the face twice? Either
way we see that the pokemon's getting hit in the face.
Japanese ending theme, Smile, is updated as of this
episode to include Wakashamo among Haruka's pokemon.
Two seconds are cut from the TO BE CONTINUED... screen. Which is odd, really, because I would think that they made enough content cuts in this episode to make time cuts like this unnecessary. Has 4Kids been making time cuts for so long that they've gotten into the habit of doing so, even when it's not required?
