in Porta Vista waiting for the next ferry to the mainland, Ash and the
rest watch the ocean. Misty spots a Horsea, which looks beaten up. She
plans to capture it and take it to the Pokemon center, but before she can,
a boat in the harbor is caught in an explosion! Ash, Brock and Misty hop
into a boat and sail out to rescue the sailors. The sailors ask to be taken
to their boss, Nastina, who thank the kids for helping out. She then asks
them if they can help her get rid of the Tentacool in the harbor, because
they are ruining her plans to build a deluxe hotel on the coral, but Misty
is not willing to harm the Tentacool. Nastina sends out a message over
the city asking for help destroying the Tentacool. Team Rocket shows up
and offers their services for the reward. They set out to capture the Tentacool,
but there is way too many of them. One of the Tentacool evolves into a
giant Tentacruel and begins to destroy the city. Ash, Brock and Misty send
out their Pokemon to try to drive back the waves of Tentacool, but there
are just too many of them. Horsea also tries to convice Tentacruel to stop,
but Tentacruel tells Horsea that it is the only way to keep humans from
destroying their home. Pikachu also tries to reason with the giant jellyfish,
but it's a passionate speech from Misty that convinces Tentacruel to pull
back, warning the humans not to invade their ocean homes again. As Porta
Vista cleans up the town, the group sets sail to their next destination
with Misty's newest Pokemon, Horsea!
"I guess ugly is in the eye of the beholder." ~Brock, on Misty's comment that Tentacool are cute.
Did You Notice?...
Apparently Misty keeps an inflatable pool with her.
This episode was pulled from rotation after the events of September 11th, due to the fact that Tentacruel destroys skyscrapers.
Who's That Pokemon?: Horsea!
