the Safari Zone, Ash spots a Chansey and attempts to capture it, only to
find out it's Officer Jenny in disguise! She arrests all of them for Pokemon
poaching. At the ranger station, they learn that they are in a protected
part of the Safari Zone, and Jenny lets them off with a warning. Suddenly
an alarm sounds, telling Jenny there are poachers in the area. Ash offers
to help, and they all drive off to capture the poachers, who turn out to
be, who else, Team Rocket. Team Rocket captures the Kangaskhan in a net,
when suddenly a little boy jumps out of the jungle, attacks Team Rocket
and frees the Kangaskhan. The boy jumps into the pouch of one Kangaskhan
and rides off with them. Jenny explains to Ash that boy is Tommo, a boy
who lives with the Kangaskhan. Suddenly, a helicopter lands and a couple
comes out, saying they've heard reports that their lost son is in the area.
It turns out Tommo is their son Tommy! Ash decides to help the parents
find Tommy, but when they do find Tommy, he has no idea who his parents
are. Tommy's father mangages to job Tommy's memory, but Tommy is still
confused. Suddenly, they hear the Kangaskhan cry out, and Tommy runs off
to see what's wrong. Team Rocket is back, and they use a giant robot Kangaskhan
to capture the Kangaskhan. Ash and the Pokemon try to stop them but the
robot keeps on going. Then Tommy's parents arrive in their helicopter and
crash into the giant robot, making it explode and sending Team Rocket blasting
off again. Tommy's parents emerge from the rubble and tell Tommy if he
wants to live with the Kangaskhan, they will stay with him.
"Maybe if you had been holding him, this wouldn't have happened." ~Tommy's father to Tommy's mother, after he drops Tommy from the helicopter.
Did You Notice?...
Misty hits both Tommy and his father in the head.
Who's That Pokemon?: Kangaskhan!
