into the next town, Ash and company run into an old hippie who plays his
Poke-flute for them, hoping to get a meal in exchange. But Ash doesn't
have any food to give him, and when they get into town, they find that
no one has any food! The river has dried up and the crops have died. Following
the river bed, Ash and the others discover a huge Snorlax is blocking the
river! They decide to wake it up, but no matter what they try, Snorlax
keeps snoozing. Team Rocket shows up, and the kids decide to let them try.
After a few disasterous attempts, Ash's Pokedex tells them that only the
sound of a Pokeflute will awaken Snorlax. They race back to the hippie
with the Pokeflute, who informs them that the Snorlax is his Pokemon! He
awakens Snorlax, but it turns out Snorlax wasn't blocking the river at
all... it's a bunch of thorny vines! Ash is disappointed that he'd have
to clear the vines to open up the river, but it turns out the vines are
Snorlax's favorite food! Snorlax munches down the vines and the river flow
